Students watch enraptured as Spider-Man talks about child abuse at Ensign Elementary School in Salt Lake City. As official spokesman for Marvel Comics, the arachnid-sapien visited local schools, the zoo and Primary Children's Medical Center in conjunction with the National Conference on Child Abuse and Neglect. In each of his talks, he focuses on a specific aspect of child abuse, from the physical to the emotional, and on neglect, then offers his young, rapt audience advice on what to do about it.
