With great power...

So, unless you've been living under a rock for the last few years, you've seen the tag line Marvel has given to Spider-Man, namely:

That's all well and good for him. He's married to a model, got cool powers, gets to make jokes while he kicks bad guys in the head, he has a job, and people generally like him.

Things are different for some of the other heros in the Marvel Universe. Some don't have the cushy lifestyle. Some were homeless kids, who had drugs tested on them, which turned them in to monsters. They still tried to do the right thing of course, but how good are things going for you when you have cool powers, but you're still homeless? For some, with great powers comes... income!

Next time Spidey tries to give you a hard-luck story, smack him in the mouth, would you?


While searching for a Spider-Man picture for this post, I used Google.
What's that google? Did I mean "spiderman"?


Geez, you'd think someone at google would've grown up reading comics.
