Review

The Power Pack kids are using their assorted powers to cause havoc around their house, leaving Spidey trying to figure out what to do. He calls Gwen for some babysitting advice, but because he didn't share his identity with her she blows him off to have a picnic on the George Washington Bridge with Harry Osborn and his dad.

Spidey decides to get the kids out of the house and takes them to a local playground. While they play in a sandbox, Spidey makes some time with Spider- Woman until she alerts him to a bully picking on the kids. When Spidey demands to know why he thinks he owns the sandbox, Sandman informs him he IS the sandbox. Spidey is about to get a beat down when the Power Pack strike, giving Spidey an opening to take Sandy down.

And so, the Power Pack gets to play in the sand and turn Sandman into a giant sand castle. But, the adventure in babysitting isn't over yet.

In General...

Another funny and cute installment of the ever-popular mini-Marvels series. A nice touch with this one is that it matches the story presented in the first two issues of the mini-series

Overall Rating...

5 Webs. Good fun, mini-Marvel style.
