Synopsis
A chubby, outcast kid who used to idolize Doc Ock now dons a Spidey costume and his octopus arms to make a bid to become Spidey's sidekick. Things don't work out for the partnership but Spider-Man is able to help him out a bit in his personal life. Much to the relief of her husband and her friends, Liz delivers a healthy baby boy.
