Peter Parker's kept a low profile on the superhero radar since the Civil War. Spider-Man hasn't been seen in months, and he's been crashing at his Aunt's house. With the months he's taken off from being a superhero, he's failed to get his personal life in order, but his friend Harry Osborn has returned from his time in Europe. But when Betty Brant gets a lead on an apartment from him, he needs to scrape together his first month's rent... fast! The Daily Bugle owes him a nice check for constantly re-printing his photos of Spider-Man, but J. Jonah Jameson's got financial problems of his own!
