Amazing Spider-Man #623-624: Peter Reaps What He Sows

New York, NY (March 1, 2010) – Marvel Comics has two words to say to Spider-Man’s alter ego Peter Parker -- You’re Fired! Beginning in Amazing Spider-Man #623, on-sale March 3rd, everyone’s favorite friendly neighborhood hero has to not only survive key arch nemesis Vulture’s reign of terror…but also losing his job at the Mayor’s office! Peter Parker lays it all on the line to protect J. Jonah Jameson and keep the city from ripping itself apart, but Peter’s sacrifice winds up costing his career as a photographer.

But when you can’t pay the bills, how’s a Super Hero supposed to buy web-fluid and fix his costume? Spider-Man’s about to learn that with great power and great responsibility comes the great need to be employed -- which isn’t so easy when you’re blacklisted in New York City!

“Peter Parker’s been through some rough times lately, with all of his deadliest foes returning, and he couldn’t lose his job at a worse time” said Senior Editor Steve Wacker. “He’s going to struggle with unemployment and trying to save the city while he can barely afford to keep a roof over his head.”

The intrigue starts in Amazing Spider-Man #623 with the shocking next installment, Amazing Spider-Man #624, spinning into stores just one week later – March 10!

JJJ isn't the editor of the Bugle anymore he's the Mayor of New York City, Pete was working for him. He's been fired from the Mayor's office. I assume JJJ's using his influence with the remaining newspapers to imply that anyone who hires Pete would find themselves having a hard time accessing the Mayor's office.

Still Ben Ulrich and Frontline love pissing people in power off so I can't see how that threat would keep him from getting work there again.

Not to mention, in reality lack of access to the mayor simply results in him not getting his message out, and the papers getting a lot of sound bites from his opposition instead. Hurts him more than anyone.
