Power Pack #5 (1984)

Daddy Power’s boss saw the kids use their powers, so now he’s afraid they’re mutants.  He gets SHIELD agent and generic man in black Henry Peter Gyrich to flash them with a mutant detector, and it’s negative.  But the boss, namded Carmody, still wants to kill them because he’s just a bad guy.

It’s not a great story, but the character moments are good, like the one above.  Several scenes of the kids playing with their powers and almost-but-not-quite getting caught by their parents.  At the end of the issue, Daddy Power gets a job in New York City, so the team will be moving there, and we’re promised that next issue they’ll meet Spider-Man.
