Comic Hype: Doc Ock's Robot Butler

In the latest Superior Spider-Man, #28,  Doc Ock is escaping Spider Island and losing he's favorite henchman, whose name he never knew, with the help of his friendly robot servant. Who cares about the current story arc when the best character of the series so far is a robot butler. Doc Ock's Robot Butler has no known name; is loyal to Doc Ock and can even transform from boat mode into submarine mode for a quick getaway in this issue. The robot butler even protected his master from a goblin attack.

The robot's design is so unconventional, it doesn't even have hands and how it moves on land at all is strange as it has nubs for legs.
