** During one early issue of David Micheline and Todd [=McFarlane's=] run, Spider-Man is visiting Kansas and meets a local man who has minor super speed powers. While he's used them occasionally to help with minor natural disturbances, he's mainly just tried to live a normal, everyday life with his family and not get into any sort of superheroics. Late in the story Spidey's battling a villain with PoweredArmor which is putting him at a notable disadvantage; the same man he met is part of the crowd of onlookers and realizes he could help Spider-Man... but he instead freezes on the spot, terrified at the thought of what could happen, especially if some of the other crowdgoers recognize him, which would ruin any sort of normalcy for him and his family. Even if you have superpowers, that doesn't automatically mean you're going to [[RefusalOfTheCall jump at the call]], especially if you have zero experience fighting dangerous supervillains out to kill and you have something hi-stakes to lose like your family's safety.
