Student Peter Parker is bitten by a spider while witnessing an experiment in radiology and finds that the radiation has transferred the properties of the spider (ability to scale walls and swing on webs) to him with a strength proportional to his body. Peter now has super spider powers and is so preoccupied with their possibilities that he fails to help the police stop a thief, who later robs the house of Peter's guardians, Aunt May and Uncle Ben, and kills Ben. Furious, Peter tracks down the culprit at a warehouse, and, on seeing the man's face, Peter realizes that if he had acted earlier to help stop the crook, Ben would be alive now. So, Peter vows to use his new powers to fight crime, as the super-heroic Spider-Man. Written by

Dr. Octopus attire modeled after his very early comic appearances. In the comics the color of his attire changed with each appearance so the producers had a variety to chose from for this adaptation. To make him stand apart from the other villains wearing green, the creative team chose the purple attire he wore in "The Amazing Spider-Man Annual #1". See more
