Steel Spider is a character that appears in LEGO Spider-Man: The Videogame.
Ollie Osnick was a gifted (albeit overweight) young teenager who idolized Doctor Octopus, and the leader of a teenage group of super-villain admirers.Osnick used his genius to design his own mechanical tentacles, and tried to imitate him as Kid Ock. He began his "crime spree" by robbing a toy store at night. When he was surprised by the security guard, he accidentally knocked him unconscious. Worried he might have severely harmed him, he was then surprised by Spider-Man, who originally mistook him for the real Octopus. After a brief pursuit, the misunderstanding was cleared up, the guard was shown to have no severe injuries, and Spider-Man gave Osnick a stern talk to and let him go.
Osnick was then so impressed by Spider-Man, that he modified his tentacles into spider-legs, donned a Spider-Man halloween costume, and became the Spider-Kid. Osnick's heroic activities often resulted in him having to be saved by Spider-Man. He was involved (along with Frog-Man and the Toad) in a short-lived super-hero team called "the Misfits." Osnick was eventually talked into hanging up his costume and become a normal child. However, in his college years, Osnick had radically changed. He had devoted himself to exercise, and became very athletic, even getting a beautiful girlfriend. Osnick still fantasized about being a hero, and continued inventing new weapons, and modifying his spider-legs.
When his girlfriend was attacked by muggers, Osnick sought revenge and created the identity of Steel Spider, donning a black costume, and equipping himself with all of new weapons (including gauntlets containing a grapple hook launcher and pepper spray blasters). Steel Spider found and brutally beat his girlfriend's attackers. He then gave up his costume, realizing that he never wanted to be a vigilante, but rather to build a life with the girl he loved.
