Synopsis: Based on Marvel Comics' superhero character, this is a story of Peter Parker who is a nerdy high-schooler. He was orphaned as a child, bullied by jocks, and can't confess his crush for his stunning neighborhood girl Mary Jane Watson. To say his life is "miserable" is an understatement. But one day while on an excursion to a laboratory a runaway radioactive spider bites him... and his life changes in a way no one could have imagined. Peter acquires a muscle-bound physique, clear vision, ability to cling to surfaces and crawl over walls, shooting webs from his wrist ... but the fun isn't going to last. An eccentric millionaire Norman Osborn administers a performance enhancing drug on himself and his maniacal alter ego Green Goblin emerges. Now Peter Parker has to become Spider-Man and take Green Goblin to the task... or else Goblin will kill him. They come face to face and the war begins in which only one of them will survive at the end.

It's a defense mechanism.

Peter, what makes you think

I'd want to know that?

Who wouldn't?

Over five painstaking years,

Columbia's genetic research facility has...

- You gonna talk to her now?

- Oh, no. Come on. You talk to her.

With these DNA blueprints, we have

begun what was once thought impossible.

- Disgusting.

- Yeah, hateful little things.

I love them!

Yeah, me too.

You know, spiders can change

their color...

...to blend into their environment.

- Really?

- Yeah, it's a defense mechanism.

- Cool.

...transfer RNA

to encode an entirely new genome...

...combining the genetic

information from all three...

...into these 15 genetically

designed super-spiders.

There's 14.

I beg your pardon?

- One's missing.

- Yeah.

I guess the researchers

are working on that one.

Do you know that this is the largest

electron microscope on the eastern seaboard?

You were talking throughout

that woman's entire presentation.

Let's talk about how we listen.

I don't know what it's like

at those fancy private schools...

...but at Midtown High...

Hey, Could I take your picture?

I need one with a student in it.

- Sure, yeah.

- Great.

Where do you want me?

Over here?

Yeah, that's great.

Don't make me look ugly.

That's impossible.


- Is that good?

- Great.

That's great.

M.J., let's go!

Wait. Thanks!

Parker, let's do it.

We've solved the horizon glide

and the multi-G balance issues.

I've already seen the glider.

That's not what I'm here for.

General Slocum, good to see you again.

Mr. Balkan, Mr. Fargas.

- Norman.

- Mr. Osborn.

Always a pleasure to have

our board of directors pay us a little visit.

I want to see the progress report on

Human performance enhancers.

We tried vapour inhalation with rodent subjects.
