Doctopus was a member of the Octopals, a quartet of thieves inspired by Doctor Octopus using functional tentacles who claimed to be the real Doc Ock reincarnated in four different bodies. They used a series of thefts commited by various robbers disguised as superheroes and their antagonists as a cover for their operations.

When they were trying to steal a shipment full of smuggler's gold in a shipyard, the Octopals were interrupted by Chipmunk Hunk, Koi Boi and Brain Drain. However, the trio's lack of coordination gave Doctor Cyberock a widow of opportunity to escape. While Chipmunk Hunk and Koi Boi were scolding Brain Drain for his failure to work as a team, the other three Octopals fled.

The following day, the Octopals returned to the shipyard to resume their plan. They were once again confronted by Chipmunk Hunk, Koi Boi and Brain Drain, with the heroes successfully subduing them this time.[1]
