Born in Schenectady, New York, Otto Octavius had a turbulent upbringing due to his abusive father Torbert berating him for being constantly bullied at school. Due to his mother's insistence that he could solve anything with his mind rather than with brute force, Otto focused more on his education, becoming a brilliant and respected nuclear physicist who devoted his entire life to developing a fusion-based energy source. His work eventually led him to Oscorp. By the time Octavius finally finished his fusion reactor for Oscorp, having lost his mother and the woman he loved during that time, he unveiled a harness of highly advanced mechanical arms controlled via a brain–computer interface to assist him with his research into atomic physics.
But because the energy core became unstable and part due to being too stubborn to turn off the machine, the experiment turned into a complete disaster with Spider-Man saving the day. But the damage was done as direct exposure to the energy core damaged Octavius mentally and physically, the latter in his rips and legs being damaged by debris. The heat from the energy core also bonded the metal harness to his spine, forcing the hospital staff to build an iron lung around Octavius's body to save his life. But Octavius, driven mad by his refusal to accept that he was wrong, escaping soon after and the turned to a life of crime as under the name of "Doctor Octopus."
