Inside Oscorp, Norman Osborn contacted Otto Octavius to capture Spider-Man and told his plan to create super soldiers from the young superhero's DNA. Octavius hired the Frightful Four to do the job. The next day when the Frightful Four were defeated, Norman chided Octavius, which the latter promised not to fail him again.
Octavius send out a Octobot to acquire a sample of Spider-Man, the tiny Octobot came back with the sample and he created a suit of living armor. Norman ordered him to make of it in one day. Later, when Norman came back from his home, the vicinity was destroyed by the organism. After the organism was supposedly destroyed, Norman congratulated Octavius for the success and ordered him to make an advanced prototype of it.
Octavius hired Taskmaster to capture Spider-Man. After Taskmaster returned from a failed mission, Octavius went into a rage and destroyed his facility, while Taskmaster decided to take revenge on Spider-Man.
The suit was specially designed for Otto Octavius to keep him alive after the fatal accident.
Spider Enhanced Super Soldiers
Initially an idea, Norman Osborn wanted to create an army of super enhanced soldiers infused with Spider-Man's DNA to sell to a high bidding market. This idea was further improved when Otto Octavius acquired Spider-Man's DNA and a suit of living armor was created by isolating the deadliest aspects of Spider-Man's DNA.
