Issue 700 ends with Peter transmitting his memories to Otto as he dies, showing Otto what drove Peter to be Spider-Man and giving him a sense of responsibility to continue Peter's legacy as Spider-man, but even better--SUPERIOR even. The Amazing Spider-Man title ends with Otto proclaiming himself the "Superior Spider-Man" and the title was relaunched as The Superior Spider-Man with Otto in Peter's body. The series has been pretty good, but I really miss Peter.
