New Spiderman Villain Octomom to be Based on Real Life Octomom
on 3/31/2009 (0)
In an upcoming issue of The Amazing Spiderman, Spiderman will face one of his toughest villains and toughest moral dilemmas he has ever faced when he does battle with the sinister Octomom.
Half woman, half octopus, the Octomom is a media whore who routinely pops out new half baby, half octopus babies to fulfill her own need for attention despite a clear inability to financially and emotionally support her new children. Spiderman must determine whether he should risk his life in a battle with the Octomom so that the octochildren can live better lives or if it is best to let the children stay with the Octomom despite the hardships they will face.
"Many of the villains Spiderman has faced in the past like the Green Goblin or Doctor Octopus have clearly falling into the evil category," said Marvel's Stan Lee, creator of Spiderman. "Octomom falls more into a gray area. She is a mother to these octopus children while at the same time being evil, selfish, and borderline insane. Spiderman must determine if she should be defeated for the good of humanity or helped for the good of the children."
The Octomom villain will be based on the real life Octomom, Nadya Suleman, who gave birth to eight children via in-vitro fertilization earlier this year despite already having six children and rellying completely on her parents for financial support. Many fear for the life she will be able to provide these children and others have accused her of doing it solely for media attention and financial gain.
At the time of this writing, it could not be verified if Nadya is actually half octopus or if that was simply an exaggeration intended to make the Spiderman villain more menacing.
