As a young boy, Peter Parker's parents, Richard and Mary, sent their son to live with his aunt and uncle, Mary and Ben, 'for a little while'. Years later, Peter is still living with his relatives; his mother and father have not returned. He befriends and falls in love with Gwen Stacey at high school and the two of them start a relationship.
While working in a laboratory, Peter visits Gwen, who allows him to have a look around but to not touch anything. Peter is fascinated by a few of the experiments and reaches out to take a closer look. He is so engrossed in what he's doing he doesn't notice the radioactive spider until it's too late.
In his room, Peter notices with horror what appears to be webbing on the back of his neck. He discovers he can now jump walls, hang from ceilings, scale drainpipes and use webbing to swing between skyscrapers. His changing attitude is a cause for concern for his aunt and uncle, who do not know that Peter Parker is now a new superhero going by the name of Spider-Man.
