Peter Parker Quest! Issue #3Rules: http://pastebin.com/w5G3aG3YCharacter sheet: http://pastebin.com/q1AqTT5h-Minor Rules update!Flash scowls before rubbing at his arm and walks off, muttering. Gwen looks at you, giving you a nod of acknowledgement.“Good morning, Peter.”You swallow nervously. How much did she see? Did she see you taunting and leading on Flash? Is she going to be mad at you?“H-hey, Gwen. How’s it going?”You nervously pull at your collar as Gwen pulls out her book and gestures for you to follow her. Nodding, you quickly make sure you have everything you need before following. Turning the deserted corner from the isolated area where your locker is at into, Gwen looks back at you. “How are you feeling?”You blink, looking over your glasses at her, noticing how she’s watching you closely. “I’m fine, all things considered, why?”She pushes your glasses up with one finger, staring intently before nodding as you let them slide down and look at her again. “Because I’ve noticed how you’ve been trying to avoid using your glasses as best as possible. Before today, you were nearly blind without them. And you were more able to dodge Flash than you’ve ever been able to before.”Her voice is low, using the nearby noise to muffle your conversations.“We need to discuss things, are you busy after school?”>[ ]No, I’m free.>[ ]I’m not sure, I’d have to check with my Uncle Ben and Aunt May.>[ ]Crud, I have an important appointment I have to keep today!>[ ]Write in
Oh fuck off already.
>>26500386>[X]No, I’m free.
>>26500386[x]No, I’m free.WE can call Aunt May and Uncle Ben later
>>26500386>Flash scowls before rubbing at his arm and walks off, mutteringYep, a good asschewing from Hartman will do that boy good.>>26500386>[x]No, I’m free.
>>26500386>[x]No, I’m free.This is important enough to MAKE time for.
>>26500386>[ ]No, I’m free.
>>26500386>[X]No, I’m free.>Peter Parker Quest: Superlate EditionI'm on to you Cos, trying to sneak quests past me by dangling the sweet carrot that is sleep in front of me, just waiting for me to take the bait.I'm not falling for that again.
>>26500386>Not sure, better check with Uncle Ben and Aunt MayBecause Peter Parker is still a massive nerd
>>26500541Look at me, forgetting my mildly displeased image in my haste to verbally express my mildy displeasure.
>>26500583>>26500541Damn, you're onto me. Oh well, can only start writing!
>>26500386>>[ ]No, I’m free."I.. Think I know what you want to talk about.. We should exchange numbers."Give her a nervous smile, and start to pull your phone out.. to hand it to her.
>that feel when this might end with superior end where doc ock steals your body and kills you twice in a row
>>26500386Now is she wearing her glasses in a similar fashion?Or is she not wearing them at all?
>>26500834what a gift, some guys give a nice cigar, a watch, but no not you, I get a dead Peter Parker Thanks for the bday wishes my friend!
>>26500834Eh, though it'd suck for us, there's some potential fun to be had with that.
>>26500928>she looks completely normal, and doesn't seem to be having a problem with her glasses.
>>26500943well happy birthday m8at least you arn't in the ultimate universe which is about to get eaten in its interety by a fusion of ultimate and regular galactus. i can't even make this shit up
>>26500962Looks like the spider used most of its venom on Peter, giving Gwen a significantly smaller dose?Or she's better at this than we are/eyes weren't as bad in the first place.
>>26501000While I would be happy that that shitheap is dying, that implies it could actually manage to infect 616. And THAT is a terrifying thought.
>[ ]No, I’m free.You pause, searching for anything that would stop you from having this important discussino with her, but you can think of nothing. You shrug.“Sure, I’m free. What’s the plan?”Gwen pauses mid-step and looks contemplative as you stop and wait with her. When she continues walking, she glances over at you, looking contemplative. “Well, I’d say one of our houses, but I’m pretty sure my Dad would be there, ready to interrogate any boy I brought home, even if he has to work. “Do you have any preferences? If you can think of anything, just let me know after class, alright?”As flashes you a smile and you nod dumbly, following her into the classroom. After you sit down in your seat, you look at the clock. Only two minutes until class starts, so that means any time now…“Hey there, kiddos! Are you all ready for today?!”Mr. Lee opens the door, smiling widely at the class. He’s wearing his usual beige sweater, khaki pants and sunglasses, looking as cheerful as ever, despite the fact he‘s getting on in his age and his hair has grayed. Honestly, he’s probably the only teacher here that really enjoys his job. Opening up his briefcase, he grins at you all.“Well, we just wrapped up our last chapter on chemistry, so I thought we’d have ourselves a Pop Quiz!”He hands out the papers and you glance down at it.>Pass the Chemistry Quiz! DC: 15>Roll Intelligence plus modifiers! (1d20+7)
Rolled 12 + 7>>26501078Has our intellect betrayed us?
Rolled 7 + 7>>26501078
Rolled 9 + 7>>26501097Nope
Rolled 20 + 7>>26501078Did we let the power get to our head?
Rolled 15 + 7>>26501078>our teacher is Stan LeePic related.
>>26501137is the art teacher named Kirby?
>>26501078Quick question, how does Spidey-Sense work? I got the gist of the rules in the pastebin, but I'm curious as to how you handle mild-strong precognition
Rolled 8 + 7>>26501156Are the Principal and Superintendant named Shuster and Siegel?
>>26501180are the Janitors Quesada and DiDio?
>>26501078as long as he marks the test and adds excelsior at the end i will be happy
>>26501170>Quick question, how does Spidey-Sense work? I got the gist of the rules in the pastebin, but I'm curious as to how you handle mild-strong precognitionBasically, right now it's a buzzing at the back of your head. It will automatically kick in whenever there's any danger nearby. Right now, you can't really tell from where though. There's no rolls for it needed, and its basically somethnig that will happen automatically and I will make not of it.
>>26501199>QuesadaI think you mean sewer maintenance workerWhenever the Lizard goes under, he seems to find ol' Quesada and fling him into the sewer water
>>26501199>implying Quesada wasn't committed to a psych ward for threatening harm to one "Mary Jane Watson" if she didn't break off her relationship with one "Peter Parker">it should be noted that Miss Watson and Mister Parker have never met
>>26501199>Weisman shows up as a Question-like character, making all types of seemingly crazy predictions and claims that have some way of turning out to be true
>>26501137>>26501097Good, at least /that/ isn't all WRONG WRONG WROOOOONG.
>>26501335No need to freak out now.
>>26501366There's EVERY need to freak out.
>Dc:15, result 19, pass!You didn’t study, but you didn’t need to, either. You’re a sponge for anything science related. So you pass the test with easy. You turn over the Quiz and rest your hand in your head. Mr. Lee seems to be looking at something on his computer while glancing over at the class periodically. After another fifteen minutes, he calls for time and collects the Quizzes. As he passes you, he pats you on the shoulder and grins as you look at him. “Mr. Parker, could I have a minute of your time after class?”You pause before nodding. “Sure, Mr. Lee.”He gives you his trademark grin. “Spectacular!” He collects the rest of them and walks up to the front of the room, clapping his hands once for attention. “Well, my true believers of science, I’m so sure that you’ve done well that I’m going to give you the rest of the class as a study period! Just don’t get too rowdy!”You glance over at Gwen, who seems to be busy reading a large book, though you’re not sure on what, before thinking about things. Where should you go to have your talk with Gwen?>[ ]The Library>[ ]Your house>[ ]write in
>>26501477I'd say our house for potential hilarity.
>>26501477>[x] A restaurant.
>>26501477The library sounds a bit quiet - easy for someone there to overhear. Why not go to a nearby park?
>>26501477>[ ]The Library>[ ]Your house>[x] The Coffee Bean
>>26501477Hmm... Meet Mr. Lee after class, but we also need to talk to Gwen after school.>[ ]write inPark or cafe could work.
>>26501477Book store if there is one. A customer probably won't be asked many questions. Especially if its one with one of those cafes.
>>26501477>[x]Your housePotential for Aunt May or Uncle Ben induced awkwardness? Now this is just impossible to pass up.
>>26501477[X]The LibraryAlways the library.
>>26501477>[ ]The LibraryIt makes the most sense for Pete after I don't think he's going to be able to invite a girl over without loosing copious amounts of pasta every step of the way.
>>26501477>>[x]Your houseTime for some SPECTACULAR Teasing from your aunt and uncule.
>>26501477Gotta go with Parker's house. We'll be getting one of Uncle Ben's speeches yet..
>>26501529We can even have a newspaper to hold in front of us in a totally inconspicuous manner!Perfect.
>alright, slim majority want to go with house, so writing.
>>26501704I am sure this will in no way lead to the death of a loved one.
>>26501704Spectacular Points are at the ready too.I'm Spider Sensing triple fellowship checks here.
Strange how much calmer it is than bleach quest in here, maybe because theres less peoplemaybe because theres less /a/
>>26501737>implying there is any chance.to evade the despair that's comingYou knew what you signed up for.
>>26501830True, all we have to do is live long enough and we will watch them die.
>>26501830We'll be that Parker that keeps his Ben and gets rich and wears Spidey Armour and has a Spidey-Bot and who's dimension is used to stop Spidey-Carnage
>>26501867We can buy off Parker Luck by spending Spectacular Points, though.
>>26501875Then we'll go first because of a fumble.
>>26501747GIVE HER THE SPIDER D!
>>26501477Going with the house, which will be my final piece of input tonightGood luck fellow questers, try not to get Gwen killedCos, keep up the awesome work, here's hoping the other ride in your theme park's up and running again soonEastfag out
>>26501875The thing is... I don't think Parker Luck has a hard-cap like Spectacular Points.So at some point, we may be accruing more PLs that SPs.
>[x]Your houseWell, while there’s many places you could go, it’d probably be best to go to your house. Aunt May and Uncle Ben would more than likely give you your privacy. You resolve to ask Gwen over to your house.You swallow nervously, trying to focus on other things, to busy yourself and not focus on that.When class finally comes to an end you walk over to Mr. Lee, who sits at his desk, drinking a cup of coffee from his thermos, holding up a finger to gesture for you to wait a moment. After he finishes the cup, he screws it back on to his thermos and smiles at you.“Mister Parker, good! So, first thing’s first.”He opens his briefcase and hands you a piece of paper with information on it. it’s a recommendation for you from Mr. Lee. “I’m not sure how good my name is these days, but that should be helpful for you. Have you thought about any colleges? If not, you should start on it. You have this year to do it. Wait too long and it’ll be too late.”You stare down at the recommendation in shock, before turning towards your teach and giving him a smile. “Thank you, Mr. Lee.”>(1/2)
>>26501737>>26501830Probably not, but I would've liked not to spill.spaghetti in the process.
>>26501977He shakes his head. “Not at all, Mister Parker. My duty is to make sure you all get the opportunities you need to get ahead in life. And you’re just oozing with talent that shouldn’t go to waste. Which brings me to my next point. Would you be interested in taking a position as a tutor?”He holds up a finger again as he continues. “It’ll be on your record for Midtown High and it’ll look good on your transcripts. More than that though, you’re a good kid, which is why I’m asking you first.“There’s a student that attends here that doesn’t have the best attendance record because of medical reasons. It’s nothing contagious, but his reports he turns in have begun to drop behind and his father has requested a tutor for him. “I don’t need an answer today, but would you be willing to think about it?”>[ ]Sure, I’d be glad to.>[ ]I’ll think about it, Mr. Lee>[ ]Sorry, I’m going to have to pass, Mr. Lee>[ ]Write in
>>26501986>[x]I’ll think about it, Mr. Lee
>>26501986>[ ] I’ll think about it, Mr. Lee.We'll ask details about the student in need, see if we can clear a schedule, before we decide.
>>26501986>[ ]I’ll think about it, Mr. LeeI'd love to help him, but there's a chance some important personal stuff might be happening with me. I wouldn't want to commit and have to back out;can I give you an answer sometime next week?"
Rolled 47>>26501986>>[ ]I’ll think about it, Mr. Leegive me the info
>>26501986[X]Sure, I’d be glad to.The Nerd side of the Force is the key to many career options some would consider highly lucrative.
>>26501986>[ ]Sure, I’d be glad to.Can't say no to Mr.Lee
>>26501977Oh thank god he already has coffee.
>>26501986>>[ ]I’ll think about it, Mr. Leemaybe, kinda depends on schedules and stuffinb4 its Flash
>>26501986Think about itParker's got a lot on his table at the moment, committing to something like this now probably isn't the best idea
>>26501986>>[ ]I’ll think about it, Mr. LeeMaybe, if other things don't get in the way.
>>26501986Parker luck says this is a bad ideaParker morality says to do itI pass on voting entirely
>>26501986>I’ll think about it, Mr. Leegotta figure out if this weird spider bite's going to kill us or if it just makes us awesome
>>26501986Can we ask more detail though, like what's his name?
>>26502245I don't see why we couldn't."So before I say yes to this I'd like to know who you have in mind?"I mean this could be Harry, he always sucked in Chemistry.
>[X]I’ll think about it, Mr. LeeYou frown. Normally you’d jump at such a chance but until you know if that spider bite isn’t going to kill you, it’d be better to wait. At least until after talking with Gwen. “I’ll think about it, Mr. Lee. Who is this student, anyway?”Mr. Lee pours himself another cup of coffee. “That’s fine. Take a day o two to consider it. The student is Mister Felix Hardy. He’s a quiet student that doesn’t come too often. You might recall him?”You try to think about it, but you do recall someone named that. Rather quiet and never attended gym. Kinda disappeared after a while, so you though he must’ve dropped out. Still you can’t recall much more than that.“A little. Never really met him.”Mr. Lee nods before glancing at the clock. “Whoa, better hurry My. Parker, don’t want to be late for your next class!”You glance at your watch and nod, hurrying out the door as Mr. Lee waves goodbye. You hurry to the class and focus on taking notes but you have two thoughts in mind. The first is of Gwen and you and your meeting. The second is of Mr. Lee’s offer.You think about them, your body on autopilot until you feel someone shake you on the shoulder. It’s Harry. “Hey, Pete, you in there?”You give him a grin. “Yeah, I was just thinking.”He pulls you by the arm. “Well think about it later, its time for lunch!”You’re dragged to the cafeteria by Harry ad after dealing with the lunch lines, you sit down staring at the school lunch as Harry grins over at you. “So, what’s got you all braindead, Pete?”>[ ]Mr. Lee offered me a tutoring position>[ ]I’m going to invite Gwen over to my house tonight.>[ ]It’s nothing important, Harry.>[ ]write in
>>26502369>[X]Mr. Lee offered me a tutoring position
>>26502369>>[ ]Mr. Lee offered me a tutoring position
how much can we lift now?
>>26502369>>[ ]Mr. Lee offered me a tutoring positionthen>>[ ]I’m going to invite Gwen over to my house tonight
>>26502369>[ ]Mr. Lee offered me a tutoring position>[ ]I’m going to invite Gwen over to my house tonight.He's our friend so say both
>>26502369>[ ]Mr. Lee offered me a tutoring positionAsk him if he knows Felix Hardy while we're at it.
>>26502403well, in the comics, Spider-man can lift about 10 tonsCosgrove has final say on that matter though
>[X]Mr. Lee offered me a tutoring position
>>26502437well thats spiderman in a year or two, plus for the most part he holds back to not kill anyone
>>26502369>[x]I’m going to invite Gwen over to my house tonight.
>>26502369Black Cat's brother or something?Oh well>Mr. Lee offered me a tutoring position
>>26502475No... rather here Black Cat is a reverse trap!
>>26502497that is my fetish
Felix Hardy you say? Well then.
>>26502497Black Cat is always older than Spidey, it's one of the rules of Marvel. And we'd be tutoring someone younger than us
>>26502510I think its for the best I forgot who that was.
>>26502369It's probably better not to talk about inviting Gwen over until we actually do it.Wouldn't want to be presumptuous or invite misunderstanding.
>>26502497That is a rather frightening thought
>>26502369>[ ]Mr. Lee offered me a tutoring positionno need to spread rumors about us and Gwen-might piss her off
>>26502653Just wait until "he" lets his chest out.I have no idea how Felicia would ever be able to contain those massive tits of hers enough to pass as a boy, but when she eventually lets them out it will be spectacular
>>26502497this begs the question, if so then why?
>>26502676Everyone is neglecting the possibility that Felix might be a dude.My face when his MOTHER was the original black cat.
>>26502722So... Parker bags a MILF?I can see that happeningBut /ss/ seems a bit risque
>>26502784Parker is too old for /ss/ at this point.
>>26502722I kind of hope notMy personal goal in this quest is to hook Peter up with Felicia, and that would be kind of awkward if she's twice his age.
>>26502676Oh crossdressing Hardy.That strangely hits my interests very much.She can always wrap them with wrapping or something
>[ ]Mr. Lee offered me a tutoring position“Well, first of all, Mr. Lee offered me a tutoring position. I’m not sure if I should take it.”Harry raises an eyebrow at you. “Why’s that? Seems like it’d be something you’re good at. Don’t like the person you’d have to tutor?”You shake your head. “No, not at all. The student’s Felix Hardy, apparently he’s always out with a medical condition or something. I don’t really know him, do you have anything on him Harry?”Harry closes his eyes and leans back humming slightly. “Let’s see… Hardy, Hardy… Ah, Hardy!”He leans forward, opening his eyes and pointing at you. “I remember him. I sat next to him last year, when he was present. He’s rather polite and well spoken, but doesn’t like to talk much. Also didn’t like people touching him, but the medical condition would explain that.”He taps his fingers on the table before shaking his head. “That’s all I can remember. Anything else up with you?”You consider asking his advice for when you ask Gwen over, but knowing him he’d misinterpret things and it’d get spread around. No, best to keep that one close to the chest. Harry pauses and checks his phone as a very displeased look crosses his face.“Bad news Pete, I’m on lockdown for now. My dad’s sending someone to come get me.”You raise an eyebrow. “What’s up?”>(1/2)
>>26502824Harry looks hesitant before he writes something down and slides it over to you. His note says ‘Dad sent me a message saying that that industrialist, Tony Stark, has been kidnapped during a display for the military. Its under wraps right now, don’t tell anybody.’“Not much, Pete. Just him being paranoid again.”When you read it, he takes it back, crumples it into a ball and eats it, grimacing as eh swallows the paper. The rest of the lunch period is much more somber. Harry waves goodbye after lunch before heading off. The rest of the day, you mind seems to be on the fritz. When the last bell of the day rings, you approach Gwen.“Peter, did you decide on anything?”You nod, swallowing nervously.“y-yeah, I thought it’d be pretty private at my house so if you want we could talk there, if not I’d understand and we could just go to the library or-”She raises an eyebrow as you trail off, looking faintly amused. “Your place is fine, Peter. Are you sure your family is okay with it?”>[ ]I don’t see why not.>[ ]…I’ll call ahead and check>[ ]On second thought, maybe we should go somewhere else>[ ]Write in
>>26502784do you want her and everyone Peter loves to die? Us contemplating Gwen in a romantic light out OOC raises her chances of dying when Parker's involved, anything beyond mere hand-holding could level New York City

>>26502962The funny thing is, if he does a background check like a good overprotective father, he'll have to admit that Peter's so squeaky clean that he can't actually oppose Gwen going out with him if things end up going that way

>>26502972If he is, then he's gonna be our mugga.
>>26503027fucking christ that page man
>>26503027That's the greatest thing I've ever seen.
>>26503027Is this even real?
>>26503039The whole thing is fucked up but awesome. The only good thing to come out of the disaster that was Avengers VS X-Men.
>>26503057>Don't they make soap here?Oh man. Wow.
>>26502833>I don't see why notWhat can go wrong?
>>26503056It's called "Muh Phoenix", and it is a page-by-page mocking of Avengers VS X-Men.http://www.nuzlocke.com/muhphoenix.php?p=1
>>26503057>>26503027Those have to be edits, right? RIGHT?
>>26503082You'd be surprised at the shit marvel gets away with
>>26503082Yes. They're edits. And yet, the original pages manage to be MORE offensive to comic fans with just how bad they are. Seriously, Avengers VS X-Men was awful.
>>26503082Of course, just look at the hideous font.
>>26503098So where did the whole guy washing his face thing come from?
>>26503057Surprised you haven't posted anything from Spider-Man's memorable appearance in the parody.
>>26503096MORE offensive than "I thought they made soap here?" Good that I didn't read it then
>>26503175Offensive as in insulting to the readers' intelligence. Every single character turns into a fucking moron.
>>26503175And would you say it worse then Civil War?
>[ ]I don’t see why not.>[ ]…I’ll call ahead and checkYou shake your head. “I don’t see why it would be, but I should probably go ahead and call ahead to check. I’ll be right back.”She nods as you walk off and find the phone the school has for student use. Dialing your house, you wait as it rings. “Hello, Parker residence, May speaking.”You smile at her voice. “Hey, Aunt May, is it alright if I bring a friend over?”You hear Aunt May chuckle. “Finally bringing other friends than Harry over, Peter? Alright, We’ll see you when you get home. Goodbye, Peter.”She hangs up and you do the same as you walk back over to Gwen, who is on her cell phone, talking with someone and looking a little exasperated. “-it’s fine dad. I’ll be home later, alright? Love you too.”Closing her phone, Gwen smiles at you. “Everything alright Peter?”You give her a thumbs up. “Yup. All’s clear at my place.”She gives you a nod and gestures at you. “Lead the way, then.”You start making your way towards your house, Gwen walking by your side. >[ ]Awkward silence the way home>[ ]try to make conversation>[ ]Write in

>>26503423We don't really know if anything's up with her yet, though. Save it for after we have a talk with her.
>[ ]try to make conversation"So, do you remember Felix Hardy? Mr. Lee asked me if I'd like to tutor him. Poor guy's been unable to get much schoolwork done because of his health.”Gwen looks at you. “Felix Hardy? Let’s see… Isn’t he the person that’s always sick?”You nod. "Do you think I should given what's going on with...y'know, us?"Gwen rubs at her chin. “Well, I’d say, if you have the time, give it a day or two. If nothing’s happened, and you want to do it, then do it. Honestly, I could see you as a teacher if you were a little more confident.”You nod, growing quiet as you’re unsure of what to say until your mind flashes to the news this morning. “Oh, did you hear about Professor Richards?”Gwen nods. “I’m more into biology, but I’ve head of it. He‘s exploring the effects of cosmic rays on different samples. Can’t say his judgment is too good, what with that incident with the Latverian heir, and the fact that he’s taking his friend, girlfriend, and her little brother with them instead of a more dedicated crew. But it’s his time and money.“What’s more interesting, however, is Doctor Otto Octavius’s works into cybernetic prosthetic limbs. We’re approaching the technological singularity, Peter, and I, for one, welcome our new robot overlords.”She gives you a grin and you can’t help but smile back as the two of you chat comfortably on the way home. When you arrive home, you open the door and call in. “I’m home!”Sitting back on the recliner, legs propped up, is your Uncle Ben, whose eye cracks open and he gives you a grin. “Hey there, sport. Heard you were bringing over a friend.”Gwen peeks her head in and waves. “Hello, Mister Parker.”Uncle Ben raises an eyebrow and waves you both over. “Please, call me Ben, miss?”“Stacy, Gwen Stacy.”Uncle Ben’s eyes widen. “You’re George’s girl? Get outta here!”>(1/2)
>>26503697Gwen looks interested, walking over. “You know my father?”“Well, yeah, I’ve known him for a while, especially when I worked on the police force. Nowadays I’m just a mall security guard, but I knew him when he joined the force. He and I still occasionally meet up to talk about the old days. Did you know that when he first started up, your father-”You hear someone clear their throat and you look over at an amused looking Aunt May. “Really now, Ben, you can tell embarrassing stories about George to his daughter later. Right now let’s leave them alone.”She shoots you a look and Ben gives an embarrassed chuckle. “Alright Alright. You two have fun, but not /too/ much fun!”Your face flushes as you sputter at him. “U-uncle Ben!”He laughs as you lightly grab Gwen’s wrist and pull her upstairs, her face red with embarrassment as well. When you finally get to your room, you lock the door and turn to Gwen. “S-sorry about that, he’s a real kidder!”Gwen shakes her head, her face returning to her normal shade, mostly. “No, its fine. So, where should we begin our conversation?”>[ ]Has anything changed for you?>[ ]What should we do about Smythe?>[ ]Why don't you start us off?>[ ]Write in

He sounded like he's bad news." "Do you think they might have security camera footage of that day?"
>>26503708"Can't help but notice that you don't seem to have any problems with your glasses.And to be honest, I'd be surprised if you /couldn't/ already do what you did to Flash.You did let one thing skip though. Neither Harry not any teachers noticed anything about my eyesight, but you saw through me in two minutes.Either you experienced something similar... Or you've spent a lot of time looking at my face."
>>26503831peters mostly only a smug fuck when hes in costume
>>26503857True, but given we're just starting out, I could see it rarely bleeding through like with Flash when we pretty much flawlessly entered Spidey mode.Though technically, the tone doesn't have to be confident, if that wouldn't be appropriate.
>>26503857The old Peter.The old Peter didn't invite pretty girls up to his room either.It's a brand new day, man. Embrace it.

>[ ]Has anything changed for you?You walk over to your alarm clock, looking it over. It’s a bit dented, but still seems to work. “Well, firstly, you’ve noticed some things about me. So, let's compare notes in a sense. You already noticed I dodged Flash easier than a roadrunner avoiding a coyote and that my glasses are useless. Besides those changes, push-ups are as easy as breathing for me, so I think I'm stronger."You show her the clock and put your hand over the same sized indent. “I can't help but notice that you don't seem to have any problems with your glasses. But, to be honest, I'd be surprised if you /couldn't/ already do what you did to Flash.”Gwen looks surprised. “Ah, you noticed that? Well, the truth is they’re fakes.” She takes them off and hands them to you. You look through them and see she’s telling the truth, handing them back to her.“See, I don’t really care for people paying me attention so I generally make myself look as plain as I can. I don’t so make-up or anything like that and I wear baggy clothes and glasses. I’m more concerned with having a good conversation than having people only pay attention to me because I’ve made myself look pretty. So now that I’m a bit more toned, nobody will notice anyway.”She puts back on the glasses as you think about something. “But, come to think of it, none of the teachers or Harry called me on my glasses. How did you figure it out?”Gwen look away, clearing her throat. “So, was that everything that’s changed with you Peter?”>[ ]Pursue her on the topic change>[ ]Yeah, let’s talk about what to do about Smythe>[ ]I also have this odd ‘danger’ sense, too.>[ ]write in

Maybe attempt lifting something heavy?Imagine the looks on Ben and May's faces when they hear the bed creaking from the strain.
>>26504229I agree we should ask if there was any change with her.>>26504234And sir, I laugh at your spoiler.

I like this quest. Cosgrove, I hereby announce that you are not a faggot. For now. Keep it up.
Gooooood Mooooooorning Parker Quest!>>26504069Describe danger sense.Express concern about the scope of these sweeping changes and what havoc they might have wrought upon our metabolic functions, that changes on this scale can't sanely be the result of a venom turned performance enhancer...or else we probably wouldn't have felt so sick for so long first.We need to science! The situation, blood samples and Microscopes. Do you still have the pamphlet from yesterday, does it talk at all about how they manipulated the spider genetics?Because if what happened has mucked with our DNA, as our cells continue to split and complete their metabolic cycles...there might be more changes...Either more minor cosmetic changes...or, well, ever seen The Fly? Older film, I know...but as long as we aren't crawling on walls or getting weird food cravings...also, lets not arm wrestle anyone.(Momentarily thinking about sexual diamorphism in spiders...Gwen might become an agile amazon brick house)
>>26504941I have no doubt in my mind that Peter Parker has seen The Fly
>>26504978Gwen's probably seen it too, what with her being a biology nut.
bumping before i go to bed
>>26504941>Gwen might become an agile amazon brick houseIs this entire quest based on The Spectacular Spider-man in any bigger part? Cause that would be hilarious to have brick-house Gwen from that show.
>>26506079Cosgrove is using it for inspiration on some things, I think, but he said in the previous thread that this isn't the Spectacular-universe.Also Harry's earlier comment about Tony Stark has me thinking that most of the Marvel Movieverse is also going to be canon-ish.
>>26504941>Either more minor cosmetic changes...or, well, ever seen The Fly?This would be my first thought had I been in this situation and it would terrify me to no end.Not because I have a fear of flies (which I do) but because of the whole body decaying as you slowly metamorphose into a creature of pure horror.I'm almost hesitant to have that brought up in character simply because I imagine that cloud of terror hanging over them every day for the rest of their natural lives.
>>26506164... you DO know that's Tonys origin story and not just a movie thing right?Only the country and weapon ever really changes (due to sliding timescale).
>>26503697>yfw this Reed turns out to be more or less Ultimate Reed>>26504196This is great stuff; it feels like I'm rediscovering Parker and Spider-Man all over again. Childlike giddiness and everything.
>>26506164Well, so far it's still okay. Actual system is refreshing. Otherwise, I guess we're up for some nice cameos here and there from Marvel Universe.I hope this will end up similar to The Amazing Spiderman game that was on PS1. Shit was so cash in there.
>>26506335I almost hope we can kind of Armored Adventures this and keep it fun and lighthearted.Maybe fellowship Harry into not going into ragekill mode when his dad trips balls and kills himself at the least.
>>26506523Harry not being insane or dead would be a net gain.
>>26506523yes yes yes
>>26506523"I'll be the GOOD Green Goblin!">Norman comes back"Jesus you're disappointing Harry."-alternatively->"AVENGE MEEE!">"Ehhh I don't know pops, you WHERE kind of a dick..."
>>26506523Can't wait for Venom appearance. In The Amazing Spiderman he was completely bonkers and I loved him for that.Thought street fight with him was damn hard.
>>26504234Clearly we should try lifting Gwen.
>>26507101It'll be a snap.
So, what's the explanation for there being a monarchy (Latveria) in the middle of the Balkans in this universe? Because... it's kind of absurd, historically speaking.
>>26507179Well, I shall bring the standard argument - you're talking a monarchy in the middle of the Balkans in a world where superheroes are quite common. Especially in New York, which has at least dozen of them.
>>26507179FOOL! DOOM DOES AS DOOM PLEASES!>>26502722>MILF-Cat>Potentially fit yet femmy trapish son in a skintight outfitCosgrove... Cosgrove please. I can't take it.
>>26507368You are ignoring the reverse trap Cat... that also pleases me!
>>26507368>>26507395Give /tg/ a couple of minutes and they'll change everything into a trap. Speaking of which, how would you guys turn Rhino into a trap? That sounds a little bit challenging.
>>26507368>FOOL! DOOM DOES AS DOOM PLEASES!But Victor isn't the monarch yet. He's the Heir Apparent. Well, either that, or Richards blew up his little brother/son's face in this universe...
>>26507395>Black Cat is actually a set of twins that alternate between support and operator>>26507414Huge McFit musclegirl. Used to be a body builder, but in true Marvel fashion she was struck by radioactive lightning while drinking a protein smoothie at the zoo.
>>26507437>Implying DOOM isn't and always has been the rightful ruler of Latveria.>Not imagining a pint sized pre-pubescent DOOM going to preschool and being forced to make fingerpaints with that accursed Richards boy.
>>26507448That works too.
>>26507368>>26507448The best thing about western comics, specifically capes from the "big two" is that you can do just about anything with them and have it make some since, since they've had so many reimaginings and interpretations over decades of syndication.
>>26504069>[ ]Pursue her on the topic change
>>26504941I fully support all of this, as long as wecan address the obvious.Namely that Smythe created a spider that apparently turns people into Captain America.Pretty sure we've written at least one essay on him, so unless the very concept of the Super Soldier Serum was covered up, we should know about it and see apparent parallels with the spider's venom.
>>26507179Time travel? At some point Doom made a literal stairway to heaven so I can't see why he wouldn't ensure that he would have his own country to rule during a free weekend or something.
>>26504069>Gwen look away, clearing her throat.I'm satisfied, no need to press things further.Kind of feel like we should awkwardly say that if her goal was for people not to notice how pretty she was, she didn't really succeed.
>>26508134That'd be the most sensible thing to say for an animated series teenager. I'd fully support such action.
>>26506164>>26506079I really hope Eddie BROck is more or less the same as he was in the show.He's great, especially after he becomes Venom.
>>26504069>>>[X]I also have this odd ‘danger’ sense, too.
>>26508179>implying we will ever give him the chance of becoming venom
>>26504069Oh, forgot something important.We should ask her where she got those glasses, since they could come in handy for us as well.Not sure how Peter got away with suddenly ditching glasses with no one really calling him on it in virtually every continuity.
>>26508179To be fair, I always preferred him as a bro, not as a villain. He was just so... bro.Compare with Eddie from the 90s cartoon. That guy was quite a dick.
>>26508146Well let's give it a whirl then.
>>26508213Could just tell everybody we started wearing contacts.
>>26508611sorry wrong thread
>>26508134Or how if this is her looking 'plain' then every guy in the school will be head over heels for her if she ever stops actively downplaying her appearance.
So if we do actually become heroes, howsabout Gwen does the actual fighting (cause she is trained) While Peter Solid Snakes?
>>26508683she could teach us the basics of CQC
>>26508693Sweet Space Spaghetti, Metal Gear/Spiderman crossover? But that's forbidden looooove.No really. That would be silly. But fun
>>26508721Wouldn't really be a crossover. We just always call hand-to-hand training "the basics of CQC" in just about every Quest. I doubt we're gonna have a Spiderbox.
>>26509057I wouldn't put it past spidey to hide in a box
>>26509057Nah, I was actually thinking of whole other thing.
>>26508721>Cosgrove will never be able to escape people requesting Rider and MGS3 references in his quests
>>26509057>bout every Quest. I doubt we're gonna have a Spiderbox.Sigh, now I'm getting BQ flashbacks with Nel as the Boss.*shakes head*We still don't know what our complete powerset is right now, it may be time for science...and then freaking out about walking on walls.
>>26509208Being Cosgrove is suffering
>>26509208>Rider referencesIt occurs to me that we need change only two letters to turn any "Rider" reference into a "Spider" reference."Spider Kick!"
>>26509361oh god it even rhymes The ride never ends.
If Gwen gets any powers, what her superhero nickname would be? Considering that we ain't going with generic Spiderwoman/Spidergirl or Black Widow.
>>26509452not just being super copthis is Peter Parker Quest not spider manlets just become the new football star fuck flash
>>26509361>>26509388...You people have never seen the Japanese Spiderman Sentai series, have you?Go. He even gets his own Spider Car and Spider Robot.
>>26509536I could see why he needs a giant robot him having to defend japan from godzilla monsters but a car?cmon japan get it together
>>26509452She's blond and is endangered by her closeness with Peter, so...Golden Recluse?
>>26509593Spider themed names are tough really since there isn't much to go by that really works:Trap DoorBird EatingCrabRecluseOrb WeaverFunnelWolfJumpingwtc.The obvious choice would be Tarantula, but since that's already taken I believe; Madam Tarantula is what I would propose.That is to say if she or even we decide on doing any super heroics.
>>26509536Didn't Spock build a Spider-Mech recently? But ya the Japanese Spida-Min show was amazing and more or less invented the entire Super Sentai genre.>>26509870>>26509593Web.
>>26509452we should pick a costume that hides any noticeable gender differences and make it look like there is only one Spider themed vigilante.fighting crime in shifts to help hide our identities and allow us to have a (somewhat) normal social life
>>26509906we could just have a voice changers in our masks and have gwen bandage down her tits
>>26509870>>26509593As someone who doesn't keep track of comics, why does everyone even need a superhero name and costume anyway?Would it not be more practical to just put on a military suit-equivalent with a mask and go superheroing anonymously?
>>26509870Here's something interesting: Arachnophilia.
>>26509925Or we could wear those things chicks put in their bras to make their boobs bigger.
>>26509939No. Being visually distinctive is important. For a hero it makes them larger than life and helps them establish themselves as something different from the human norm. For a villain it lets them become something intimidating and primal. Without costumes you're just some guy. Not nearly as fun.
>>26509906Go the 'What If?' Peter Paker / Ben Riely double team route? Not a bad plan.Of course, having a Friendly Neighborhood Dynamic Duo right from the start would be pretty boss.I say we go full out Spiderman Noir for both Gwen and Peter. Maybe wear some kevlar under the the 20's era biker jacket, though.
>>26509939OOC, Because Genre and entertainment value. IC, Superheroes are supposed to be symbols as much as anything. You can't inspire people and be a symbol of hope and righteousness if no one sees and recognizes you.
>>26509939Because it's boring otherwise."Street Cloths" Super Heroes are pretty lame and tend to be visually uninteresting. Being a hero, as Batman put it, is about being a symbol.So ya you could strap on a tacti-cool vest and just be "Generic Swat Guy #4 who can walk up walls", but that's again, pretty boring. I'm not saying we should wrap ourselves in rainbow radiant full body suits and yell "GREEN MAN!" everywhere we go, but being a little distinctive once we "evolve" is a given.A good middle ground of this is Agent Venom.As far as names go, the public more or less ends up picking their names for them most of the time.
>>26510075kevlar might be tricky to find, then again spidey fights bank robbers on an everyday basis
>>26510021That just seems counterintuitive to me.By dressing up in silly costumes, we lose the ability to smack someone in the back of the head when he isn't expecting us.If others wise up and do the same, we also gain the advantage of surprise simply because nobody can guess what powers we will use because there are fifty different superheroes running around dressed the same. And when a regular SWAT team rolls in, nobody knows if they are really regular humans of if they are about to start throwing cars around.
>>26509939Form fitting spandex is easier to hide under your civ cloths.
>>26510119>And when a regular SWAT team rolls in, nobody knows if they are really regular humans of if they are about to start throwing cars aroundSo then all the criminals start packing AP and WP rounds and/or power nullifiers and we are double triple fucked.
>>26510119It's just a part of the genre. You can make your own operator operating operatively superhero obviously.
>>26509939That's where you cross the line from superhero the community loves to dangerous vigilantly that the government hunts for.
>>26510095That's true about the name, I think we should just do or duo neighborhood spider thing and the people will pick a name for us.
>>26509963Not bad, but shorter would be better. Arachne?
>>26510095>As far as names go, the public more or less ends up picking their names for them most of the time.We should make "Fantastic" our catchphrase and say it all the time so that the public will name us "Mr Fantastic" and Reed Richards will just be "Stretchy Dude" when he comes back!
>>26510182Or stuck with 'Plastic Man'.
>>26510182I like the way you think, good sir. Spiderman always wanted to be one of the Fantastic Four, anyway. Getting dibs on the name now should give us some leverage for that.
>>26510313That doesn't have anywhere near the inseam needed for Spidey's acrobatics. He's going to rip his pants at the crotch the moment he starts flipping about.
>>26510182It's funny because FUCK YOU REED that's why.In all seriousness though if we both do decide to start webslinging (somehow) we are in for a wild and fun ride.
>>26509218No, our Spider-Box will just be a box filled with spiders.I'm not talking a few dozen, I'm talking literally slam jam packed, two scoops, writhing black and brown mass willed to the brim with spiders here.
>>26510440inb4 our spider sense becomes powerful enough to call millions of spiders to battle
>>26510440...and we then throw it in J.J.'s office window.
>>26510358If we end up not being SOME kind of hero team, I'll be disappointed.
>>26510477Our spider squad will be all powerful
>>26510474Always nice to see J.J. around. He's a fun guy.
>>26510182>Fantastic>not "Excelsior!"Do you even Stan the Man, true believer?
>>26510464If we ever become crippled our spider sense will adjust and let us see through time/space.
>>26510313That's pretty cool for not being black. The pants need to be way baggier, or part spandex, otherwise >>26510346 is right.As much as I love the look of the Spiderman Noir suit and world, it really is meant for sneaking around and then putting the hurt on people.maybe we should try and talk Tony Stark into building the Iron Spider suits early? 'Hi, Mr. Billionaire Playboy Philanthropist, we're two underaged high school superheros who need secret identities and super suits. Can you help us? We have a combine IQ of six hundred and thirty!"Also, we're autosaging. Someone witty care to archive this?
>>26510358>That feel when Norman drops her off the bridge only to have her loop back around and kick him off his glider from behind. "NOPE!">>26510477Two with an odd supporting cast member or two is fine. We don't need so many friends we can barely keep track of them all like in Bleach Quest.
>>26510514'Nuff said!>>26510532Well, when I said "team" I meant "duo" actually.
>Miss-archived as #2FUCK ME
>>26510588god damnit you guys you had one job ONEJOB
>>26510521IF Stark can do it so can we
>>26510474Nonono, you aren't thinking this through enough. The box is jist a one time thing. What we need to do is something that lingers. We use our mighty science skills to create a sort of spider bait, and then plant it on his person/office. That way he can NEVER escape the spiders. Ever.This is assuming JJJ is an aresehole in this universe, if not then we leave him alone.
>>26510630Hey, JJJ might be an asshole, but all in all he's a good man.
>>26510658All he wants is pictures.Pictures of Spider-Man.
>>26510658That's debatable. He lets his hatred and obsessions get the best of him a lot of the time. Remember when he hired Smythe's dad to build him robots to kill Spidey with? That's moving into supervillain territory.

>>26510750Well, I guess it depends on which Spiderverse we use, cause there's plenty of them. But most of the time I remember him as a good guy, whose hobby was hating on Spiderman.
> 10 hours later> thread still alive and active...sounds like a Cosgrove thread alright.
>>26510807Such is the power of Cosgrove, and it will continue unless he tells us to cut it out.
TECHNICALLY Cosgrove could just cut right to Agent Venom (although it wouldn't be Flash) and have Venom as an experimental bio-organic body armor developed by Oscorp or another big bio tech company like AIM if he wanted to.Same with Otto only instead of stealing our life from us; after he gets beaten down so much he flips the switch and manages to replicate our powers seeing to outdo us as heroes right in our face complete with our moniker and everything.That's why I love comic books so much; you can do almost anything you want including mixing in what-ifs, alternate universe representations, future and past and all that into one giant pot and have it work.
>>26510890So basically we could go meta this quest up and know what to do, right until it bites us in the ass and kills someone, like Gwen, her dad, our uncle or us.Well looks like whoever know the spidey lore like the back of their hands better just throw it all away but the basics.
>Longer nap and errands than expected, but I have returned
>>26511030There are a few constants in Spider-Man lore; the first being that Uncle Ben dies. No avoiding it.it's what drives Spider-Man to be Spider-Man.Otherwise he'd just be a nerd with super cool powers who was content with chilling out and not doing anything with them; or just using them for fun and profit like a normal person would.
>>26511092It's on autosage Cosgrove; if you want to run it now, it might be a good idea to just start a new thread and cross link it.almost as if one was making a web of sorts
>>26511092IT'S GO TIME

>>26511115The only way too keep Ben Alive is to replace him. Lets become Gwen's uncle Ben

Oh, I do have this weird danger sense, too. It’s like a-”“Buzzing in the back of your head when there’s trouble coming?”You nod dumbly. “Yeah, how did you know?”She shrugs. “Well, when Flash came charging at me it was a bit of a surprise, but…”Your mind filled with science now, you scratch at your chin. “Well, honestly, we should see what else we can do now. Set a base line of where we’re at and then if nothing like The Fly happens, we can see if it was a one time thing or if the…changes are continuing.”Gwen nods, pulling out a piece of paper. “Good idea, so that was a, what type of spider bit us?”Recalling the exhibit, you remember the Red-and-Blue spider’s empty exhibit. “it was some sort of jumping spider, with other things put into it.”She nods making a note. “Well we should see what he can do. Spiders can normally can climb walls, generally through scopulae, but I haven’t noticed any differences on my hands, but it would be fun to check anyway. They can also spin webs and have venomous bites, but I haven’t noticed any odd changes in my body other than improved musculature, have you Peter?”You shake your head as she continues, making more notes. “We also seemed to have improved strength and reaction times, so a baseline for strength would be good, too.”“Anything else you have to add, Peter?”>[ ]Not that I can think of.>[ ]I...

>>26511833Supporting the SP burning, but not that line.
>>26511833Just because a spiders spinnerets are on their thorax, doesn't mean our would be. It's there so the thread can be easily manipulated by their hind legs.Biologically speaking near the coxix would be a less than idea place for such an orgain on the human and would more than likely be found in the wrist, forearms, fingers, or hands,I also like how casually Peter brought up "The Fly" and how non-freaked out he and Gwen are about that prospect.
>>26511793>[x]I... Really didn’t think to look.Also support for burning a spectacular point.
That was fucking retarded, why would we need to make a check there? It serves no purpose other then to roll a dice. We weren't even trying to convince her of something.
>>26511872Agreed, might as well use our earlier luck as best we can.

>>26511793"We should find a way to test the danger sense, too. Do you think it only responds to actual physical danger, or just incoming attack? We should find something that presents us with surprise attacks without actual danger. Paintball or something like that."

>>26512207Burn it.Burn them all.
>>26512207Yes, BURN, BURN!
>>26512207Burn it. Fifty years of comics have made it pretty clear that Parker Luck is worse than regular bad luck. Rather use the SP to deal with the former than the latter.
>>26512207Burn it, because Parker Luck means Norman drops her off a bridge.>'I Really didn't think to look' and not 'I Needed Your Assistance To Perform The Glorious SCIENTIFIC METHOD'.
>>26512271And then she webslings away.
[x]I... Really didn’t think to lookYou freeze at you think about it. Other than looking at your new physique, you didn’t look around for anything else, not really. “I…really didn’t think to look, actually. All I know is that I was more fit. Crud. You slide up your sleeves and start looking at your wrists, then your ankles. “What are you doing Peter?”You glance at Gwen. “Well spiders have spinnerets on their thoraxes because they’re legs would better deal with manipulating it. So, more than likely, it would be on an analogous part for us. Like the wrists. But, nothing’s different. How about you?”She pauses and double checks, shaking her head. “No, I’m good, too. So what should we begin testing, Peter?”>[ ]Can we climb walls?>[ ]General basic workout baseline.>[ ]Let’s see how this ‘danger sense’ works.>[ ]Write in

>[ ]Can we climb walls?>[ ]Let’s see how this ‘danger sense’ works.>[ ]General basic workout baseline.You think about something she said. Spiders have the ability to climb walls, so it’d be as easy as trying to climb them, right? Taking off your shoes, you press your hands against the wall and attempt to climb.“Hey, what are you up to…”To your surprise, it’s working. It is actually working! You’re climbing the wall! You stare down at Gwen, who has dropped the pen she’s holding as she stares at you in shock. You continue and attach yourself to the ceiling and crawl across it before down the other side, before pressing you hand against the wall and removing it easily.You feel a slight buzzing in the back of your head as you’re grabbed by the shoulders, turned around, and shaken almost painfully by Gwen, who looks both enthused and freaked out.“Peter, how did you just do that?!”Focusing on how you did it, it seemed like how you managed to work was.. Intent. You intended to climb the wall, so you adhered to it. So, therefore, if that principle is true…You reach up a finger to the bridge of Gwen’s glasses with the intent to cling to it and pull away, the glasses attached. “It’s elementary, my dear Watson. All it requires is the right intent.”>(1/2)
>>26512842She freezes, staring at her glasses before you push them back up and smile at her, pulling away your finger sans glasses. “Are you sure?”You shrug as best as you can in her grip as you get a good look at her up close. Really, if she was trying not to be pretty, she’s failing badly. She lets go and looks at the wall, then back at you. “I’m going to try, alright?”She hesitantly unties her shoes before mimicking your earlier motions. One hand after another she climbs the wall, looking amazed as she looks down at you. “Peter, this is amazing. Really, really amazing!”She climbs down as looks shocked and thrilled. “We should do other tests, like our spider sense or our baseline.”“Spider-sense?”She looks at you, seemingly embarrassed and a bit anxious. “Well it was a spider that bit us and now it’s a new sense so… Spider Sense. Why? Does it sound too kiddy or something?”You shake your head. “Nah, just didn’t think about what to call it. But you’re right, we should test things out. Maybe we should start with the baseline, just to make sure we know what we’re dealing with and don’t accidentally get hurt. Maybe also a blood sample so we have the ‘us’ of right now to compare future samples to in case of further mutation?”She nods, putting back on her shoes. “I agree. What should we do first, then? Should we see the limits of how strong we are or how fast we can go- or what?”>[ ]Find heavy things to lift>[ ]jog around the park to see how long we can keep going>[ ]write in

>[X]Find heavy things to liftAgility test DC:18, 18. Success!“Hmm…”You ponder things, putting on your shoes, before a mischievous thought overtakes you. “Well, I guess we should try to test the limits of our strength.”Gwen looks at you, seeming somewhat wary. “Peter are you up to something?”You grin as you quickly move in and pick her up by the waist, easily lifting her up into the air. She flails looking surprised, as she glares down at you as you set her back down. “Well, looks like that test was no good, Gwen, you’re as light as a feather!"Besides, I always figured I was bad at picking up cute girls."She flushes, heavily embarrassed, as you grin at her. “Y-you….”You feel your Spider Sense kick in at Gwen gives you a dangerous grin. You swallow nervously as she starts advancing, as you retreat towards the door. “N-now Gwen, what’s with that look?”She grins at you cheerfully. “I don’t know what you’re talking about Peter.”Your spider sense goes into overdrive as your hand comes into contact with the door. Unlocking it and opening it, you manage to dodge out the door as Gwen grabs at you. Running down the stairs you wave at your aunt and uncle. “Hey Aunt May, Uncle Ben, we’ll be back!”You quickly make for the door as Gwen chases after you from the top of the stairs. “PETER PARKER, YOU COME BACK HERE AND DIE LIKE A MAN!”Uncle Ben grins at you, giving you a thumbs up as you bail out the front door, Gwen hot on your heels. You start making your way towards the park, chuckling as Gwen tries to catch you.Well, things could be worse.Peter Parker Quest! Issue #3ENDTo Be continued!
