Chapter 18: The Leftovers

"Fiiiine, " Mike said, sounding disappointed. "I guess we can throw it out."

"Mike, it's toxic!"

"I know, " Mike said. "But maybe we should save some, in case we want more powers. Like laser vision!"

"Why do you want laser vision, isn't hat power enough?"

"Yeah, but with laser vision, I can heat up my cold leftover pizza."

"But, you can't get laser vision until you eat the cold leftover pizza," Johnny replied.

"What cruel irony!!"

"Anyway, " Johnny continued, "You make a good point."

"About laser vision?"

"No, about maybe needing this pizza later on, maybe to someday get rid of our powers when we understand what has happened to us."

"Why would we want to get rid of these powers? They're great!" Mike was now wearing a sombrero.

"Whatever life holds in store for me, I will never forget these words: 'With great power comes great responsibility.' This is my gift, my curse. Who am I? I'm Spider-man."

"Whoa, you can quote movies too?"

"No, no, I just know that quote."
