Spider-Man

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.

Who am I? You sure you want to know?

The story of my life

is not for the faint of heart.

If somebody said

it was a happy little tale...

... if somebody told you I was just an

average ordinary guy, not a care in the world...

... somebody lied.

But let me assure you, this

like any story worth telling...

... is all about a girl.

That girl. The girl next door.

Mary Jane Watson.

The woman I've loved

since before I even liked girls.

I'd like to tell you that's me

next to her.

Aw, heck, I'd even take him.

Hey! Stop the bus!

That's me.

Tell him to stop! Please!

Stop!

Hey! Stop the bus!

Stop the bus! He's been chasing us

since Woodhaven Blvd.

Catch a cab, Parker!

Thank you. I'm sorry I'm late.

What a geek!

- Don't even think about it.

- You're so lame, Parker.

Would you date him?

Midtown High seniors.

No wandering. Proceed direct...

Knock it off.

Remember, it is a privilege

to be here.

We're guests of Columbia University's

Science Department.

So behave accordingly.

Let's not have a repeat

of our trip to the planetarium.

Come on, stay together.

Proceed up the steps

and into the building.

- Where were you?

- Checking out the library.

- Looking at the books.

- Yeah, right.

- Dad would you ask Hoskins to drive around the corner please.

- Why?

The entrance is right there.

Dad these are public school kids,

I'm not showing up for the field trip in a Rolls.

You want me to trade in my care for a Jetta

just because you flunked out of every private school I ever sent you to?

- It wasn't for me.

- Of course it was.

- Don't ever be ashamed of who you are.

- I'm not ashamed of who I am.

It's just...

Just what, Harry?

Forget it.

Pete!

- Hi, Harry.

- Hey, man. What's up?

- Harry! Won't you be needing this?

- Thanks Dad.

- Um, Peter may I introduce my father, Norman Osborn.

- I've heard so much about you.

- It's a great honour to meet you sir.

- Harry tells me you're quite the science whiz.

Y'know, I'm something of a scientist myself.

I read all your research on nanotechnology.

Really Brilliant.

- You understood it?

- Yes, I wrote a paper on it.

Impressive.

Your parents must be very proud.

- I live with my aunt and uncle, they are proud.

- Hey, you two! Let's move!

- Nice to meet you.

- Hope to see you again.

- He doesn't seem so bad.

- Not if you're a genius.

I think he wants to adopt you.

There are over 32,000 known species

of spider in the world.

They're in the order Araneae,

divided into three suborders.

That's amazing!

This is the most advanced electron

microscope in the eastern seaboard.

It's unreal.

Arachnids from all three

groups possess...

...varying strengths which help them

in their constant search for food.

For example, the Delena spider,

family Sparassidae...

...has the ability to jump

to catch its prey.

For the school paper?

Next, we have the net web spider,

family Filistatidae...

...genus Kukulcania.

It spins an intricate funnel shaped web whose strands

have a tensile strength

...proportionately equal to the type of high tension wire...

- Leave him alone.

- Or what?

Or his father will fire your father.

What's Daddy gonna do? Sue me?

What is going on?

The next person who talks

will fail this course. I kid you not.

- This grass spider...

- Let's go.

...hunts using reflexes with

nerve-conduction velocity so fast...

...that some researchers believe

it almost borders on precognition.

-Those guys are jerks.

-...an imminent awareness of danger...

A spider-sense.

Hey, look at that spider.

Some spiders change colors

to blend into their environment.
