Steampunk Spider-Man and his nemesis, Victorian-era Doctor Octopus

Steampunk superheroes are not an unfamiliar concept, but this particular batch was drafted by Italian artist Denis Medri — who was responsible for those delightful greaser Batman designs — so we'll give them a pass. Behold such villains as Kraven, the Green Goblin, and Doctor Octopus, who I presume is named "Professor Cephalopod" in this retrofuturistic reality.

I'm not terribly fond of the Steampunk Spider-man. The rest are fine, but Spidey looks a little too slapped together, and the multi-lensed goggles, while nice, seem like they would be more trouble than they're worth. Besides, if you're going to go with the multi-lense thing with Spider-man why not go the full hog and give him a gasmask? Maybe try and stylize the charcoal filters so they look like fangs or something, but I just don't dig the bandanna and goggles look Spidey.
