Spidey's been fired from his paper route after his identity was made public, and he's got his hands full at his new job: babysitting the Power Pack. They've already trashed their home and taking them to a playground was a bad idea. Fortunately for Spidey, the end of this job is in sight!

The Powers are finally home and find their kids asleep. Spidey fills them in on their adventures and he gets his pay; a measly 10 dollars. Spidey flips out, and is once again unemployed. The Secret Avengers try to help Spidey come up with a solution to get his old job back, but it's Captain America who figures it all out.

The next day, Jameson reads in the paper that Spidey is re-masked and his identity is no longer known, just as Daredevil and Iron Fist carry out their own plan and swing by in Spidey costumes (recognized by Jameson) to throw off suspicion. Jameson gives Spidey back his route, leaving Brock unemployed. He mentions his suit always being hungry for brains and needing one where that won't be a problem. Fortunately, Spidey knows a perfect position that recently opened...

Eddie Brock, baby sitter!

In General...

Another brilliant chapter in the story, especially the jab at the recent Iron Fist masquerading as Daredevil bit. Civil Wards was pure hilarity all the way through.

Overall Rating...

5 Webs. You gotta love the Mini Marvels.
