This is supposedly an expanded version of the backup story in Amazing Spider-Man #1, which I’m about to read after this. Basically Spidey’s in need of some cash so he devises a foolproof plan:
- Be a jerk-ass to the Fantastic Four
Seriously, though, he wants them to hire him and pay him their “top salary”. He hopes to accomplish this by fighting them and being a huge asshole. Good plan.
This was pretty unbelievable (in a bad way), and obviously just a way to show off the powers of these different characters.
