Synopsis
Peter is in Emporia, Kansas touring the On-Line Research complex where he is being offered a job. When a fire breaks out, Spider-Man swings in to help but witnesses the construction foreman using super speed to put the blaze out. Spider-Man has a chat with Wes Cassaday and learns that he was bitten by a radioactive jackrabbit but wishes to keep his powers a secret. After saving his potential boss from the dreaded Dr. Nero, Peter returns to New York and tells Mary Jane that he would like to take the job and move them halfway across the country.
