A cosplaying pet cat ponders its evil machinations as Alfred Molina’s portrayal of Doctor Otto Octavius in Marvel’s Spider-Man: No Way Home.
A kitty cosplayer holds the power of the sun in the beans of its paw with this Doctor Octopus costume, inspired by Spider-Man: No Way Home.
Twitter account Cat Cosplay tweeted photos of one of their furry models dressed in an incredible, pet-themed cosplay of Doctor Otto Octavius, otherwise known as Doctor Octopus. Modeled on Alfred Molina’s portrayal of Doc Ock in No Way Home, this cat is every bit his match as the multi-limbed mad scientist. One might even go as far as to say that this portrayal of Doctor “Octavipuss” is purrrr-fect.
Poised in a feline-friendly turtleneck sweater, trench coat and sunglasses, this cat is dressed for the part of one of Spider-Man’s most iconic supervillains. From behind the cat, the four mechanical arms that define this character appear and look like they are capable of doing more than batting around toy mice. The appendages feature several key details from the source material including gold segments along each arm, segmented claws built to grab and an intimidating red glow at their cores.
Molina’s most recent portrayal of Doctor Octopus in No Way Home has a look that’s a huge departure from the original comic portrayal of his green and yellow jumpsuit, and the differences don’t end there. The Doc Ock shown in the Marvel Cinematic Universe is as much of a victim of his robotic arms as he is their master.
Originally a scientist seeking to develop clean energy through nuclear fusion, Dr. Octavius was involved in a lab accident during a demonstration, causing the arms to be permanently fused to his body as well as the death of his wife. Unable to be separated from his creations and slowly succumbing to the artificial intelligence within them, he becomes a criminal bent on proving that his invention was a success — even if it means taking all of New York City with him. He is ultimately persuaded to stop by Toby Maguire’s Spider-Man and dies while destroying what he had created.
In the comics, Doctor Otto Octavius also experiences the loss of his wife and the addition of his mechanical arms thanks to a lab experiment gone awry. Unlike Molina’s Octavius, however, he is in full control of his evil actions even without any outside influence from malicious artificial intelligence. Using his innate intelligence in combination with the powerful arms now at his disposal, Doc Ock has been a longstanding member of Spider-Man’s gallery of rogues.
