Spider-Man – After being bitten by a genetically altered spider, nerdy high school student Peter Parker is endowed with amazing powers. The next morning, Peter discovers that he is no longer near-sighted, and his body has metamorphosized into a more muscular physique. At school, he finds that his body can produce webs from the wrists, and his quickened reflexes enable him to avoid injury during a confrontation with Flash Thompson. Brushing off his Uncle Ben’s advice that “with great power comes great responsibility,” Peter considers impressing Mary Jane with a car. He enters an underground wrestling tournament and wins his first match, but the promoter cheats him out of his prize money. When a thief suddenly raids the promoter’s office, Peter allows him to escape in revenge. Moments later, he discovers that Ben has been carjacked and shot, dying in Peter’s arms. Overcome with anger and vengeance, Peter corners, subdues and tries to kill the carjacker, but hesitates when he sees it is the thief that he let escape. The thief attempts to flee, but trips and falls out a window to his death instead. Meanwhile, at Oscorp’s chief competitor Quest Aerospace, during a weapon’s test Norman kills several scientists and the army’s General Slocum.
