With Great Power Comes... Unemployment?
Today Marvel Comics announced that an upcoming storyline of Amazing Spider-Man, one that begins this week, will once again align the life of Peter Parker with the lives of many across the world given the challenging economic climate many face.
That's right folks, Peter Parker is about to lose his job. This week's issue will not only feature the latest threat from the Vulture, but Parker will be forced to put his job on the line to protect his boss, New York City Mayor J. Jonah Jameson.
Marvel supplied this quote from Spider-Man editor Steve Wacker: "Peter Parker's been through some rough times lately, with all of his deadliest foes returning, and he couldn't lose his job at a worse time. He's going to struggle with unemployment and trying to save the city while he can barely afford to keep a roof over his head."
