Synopsis for "Local Superhero!"Edit

Tired of Spider-Man pictures, Robbie Robertson assigns Peter to check out a costumed vigilante in the small community of Smithville, Pennsylvania. Peter meets an ambitious small town newspaper reporter, Roxanne DeWinter, itching to move onto the big leagues. Spidey tracks down the Smithville Thunderbolt and learns that he has recently lost his powers and has been staging incidents where he can play the hero. Roxanne stumbles in on them and snaps some pictures of the Thunderbolt's secret identity. However, a mysterious burly man interrupts their discussion and crashes through the wall.
