The Superior Spider-Man #3

Apparently no one ever told the "superior" Spider-Man not to pick a fight with a herald of Galactus. With a little help, Doctor "No I'm Spider-Man Now" Octopus is able to siphon enough of Terrax's Power Cosmic to make it a fair fight between the Superior Spider-Man and the former herald.

Much of The Superior Spider-Man #3 focuses on the battle between Otto and Terrax, which despite Otto's boasting could have gone far worse for the villain turned hero if not for the help of others. Ultimately putting his life on the line to save the city not only buys him enough time to figure out how to beat Terrax but also a second chance with Anna Maria Marconi who has become his new partner.

While it might have been fun to see what Otto could have done with the Power Cosmic, it makes sense for him to gracefully give up the power which would in short order destroy a human body. Still, the door remains open for more cosmic powered shenanigans given Anna's deception. Worth a look.
