When Otto Octavius is victim of a lab incident and goes mad in the city with his mechanical tentacles, Jameson of the Daily Bugle wants to find a name for the new super menace of New York City, with Robertson assisting Ted Hoffman in his tries. After a brief discussion, the publisher decides for "Doctor Octopus".

Robbie attended the wedding of John Jameson and Mary Jane Watson, which is later canceled for the bride's absence.
