    Otto was better than Peter as Spider-man. FAR more effective. His brief time as Spidey made Peter seem like a complete failure who squandered his intelligence and potential. It made Peter's immaturity look like a tragic flaw, which was probably a meta dig at Peter's constant de-aging by editorial.

Otto got more done, it's true, but he crossed quite a few lines that shouldn't be crossed. Mind controlling the Sinister 6, excessive violence, privacy-invading spider-bots, and I'm sure there are other things that I'm not thinking of. Don't get me wrong, I read every issue of Superior Spider-Man, and quite a few issues of his Team-Up title. It's the longest continued run of any Spider-Man title in my collection. BUT as far as being a "better" Spider-Man, I feel it's important to distinguish efficiency from moral judgement.

    I also agree with the comments below that Zemo the son is better than his father.

Quite. Yes.
