Even Spiderman Is Not Immune to Job Loss

In the most recent issue of Marvel Comics', The Amazing Spiderman, Spiderman's alter ego, Peter Parker loses his job as a newspaper photographer. He doesn't just struggle to keep a roof over his head and pay his bills; he also has to manage Spiderman's expenses including "web fluid" and the costs of maintaining his superhero wardrobe to keep his identity under wraps. Sure, he's just a comic book character, but what Spiderman is facing is not that different than what millions of Americans are facing today: dealing with a job loss, but still feeling like they have to continue to be a superhero.
