You claim he'd be boring?? And yet he has been portrayed as a true villain for over 40 years in the comics,and readers have not bored of him. The Green Goblin is the same.Why were people not bored of him in SM-1??? Should we make The Joker a misguided soul in the Batman Begins sequal?? Should we have him turned good and save Gotham from his laughing gas or something,because people might be bored of the sterotypical crazy clown after 65 years??? Of course not. You think having Octavius controlled by A.I. tentacles gave him layers?? If anything it stripped him of what makes him so special.
