It was move-out day in 401, and since Victor wasn't totally clear on where he'd end up living back in L.A., he was trying to pack light. Some things he was happy to get rid of; for example, he was all too pleased to see the bulky layers he'd needed for East Coast winters go off to Goodwill. Others, like certain class notes and anything from his friends, he kept for entirely sentimental reasons.

But he hesitated over his pile of comics. On the one hand, they were bulky to lug around and most of them weren't even worth anything. He could Torrent anything he wanted to reread. On the other, they were comics and comics were an awesome resource for a wannabe hero. And it had been a long time since he read that Spider-Man annual.

He flipped through it, getting lost in the story instead of finishing his packing.

"Heading out?" Maddie asked from the doorway.

"Not much. I just wanted to make sure I caught you before you left," she said. "What are those?"

"I'm sure they did. And probably claimed artistic license or whatever," she said. "You could always ask him."

"I don't know. I mean, he seems cool. He might be flattered you asked."

Maddie had no idea, do not trust her opinion.

"Exactly! Also it's an excuse to talk to Spider-Man."

Seriously don't trust her opinion. He'd probably facepalm with the proportionate strength of a spider.

"Aww, cute. I was always a Ms. Marvel girl myself," Maddie admitted. "I got to train with Spider-Man a while back, though. It was pretty awesome."

"Wait, you got to have sushi with Spider-Man? That's so cool." Fight, schmight. Sushi with Spider-Man.

"Tool or not, I'm totally jealous," Maddie said. "So you've got that going for you."

"Good job, past you," she smiled. "You'll have to let me know when you get to do cool stuff again. You know, so I can be appropriately jealous."

"Deal. Though I doubt I'll be doing the fun stuff. More like teaching other people to do the fun stuff," Maddie said.

"Oh, that I'll definitely do. You'll hear everything," she promised.

"I'll miss you, too," she said, hugging him back. "Have fun and be careful and all that, right?"

"Hey, Vic, do you need any spare cables?" Topher said, striding into the room with a fistful of different-colored cords. "I st-- borrowed all this stuff from Stark's and I can't actually fit it in my bag. Ooh, comics?"

Someone was a little hyped up on energy drinks. Packing up his disaster of a room was a project.

"I'll take them," Topher offered readily. "Torrenting is barely a thing in my world. Plus I kinda want to see what superhero comics from a superhero world are like. Is it all lampshading?"

"Do the actual heroes get really ticked about these, like with paparazzi rumors?" Topher wondered, examining the... interesting art in one of them. "Like is there a whole Leave Spidey alone! kind of thing?"

"Ugh," Topher said dramatically, flopping on Alec's bed. "Boring. No one wants to read their glorified press releases."

He yawned. "So, dude, what are you doing now that we're out of here? Just general crime-fighting?"

"Not really," Topher said, tilting his head like he hadn't really thought about it yet. "I'll probably hang out at home, catch up on video games, maybe design an app. My mom suggested I do some European travel thing, but I don't wanna go places," he added, making a face.
