Synopsis Spidey saves the Toad from committing suicide and, starved for the companionship of a true friend, Toad decides to try and become his sidekick; Spidey blows him off until the next day and Toad recruits a gang of thugs to attack Spidey so he can show his worth to the web slinger; Frog-Man gets wise to the plot and shows up to help out; So does the Spider-Kid; Finding a point of commonality amongst themselves (they are, after all, chubby losers with lame powers), Toad, Frog-Man and Spider-Kid decide to become a new super team--the Misfits; Shaking his head in disbelief, Spidey is all too happy to simply walk away from the ludicrous situation.
