Peter Parker's parents were killed when he was a kid and raised by his uncle and aunt. Now in high-school, he discovers research results left by his father, and investigates the latter's former colleague, Curt Connors, now a researcher at Oscorp. Sneaking into Connors's lab, he gets bitten by a genetically engineered spider that produces super-strong thread. Peter soon develops super-strenght and the ability to stick to any surface and uses his powers to find the criminal who killed his uncle on the street. He also befriends Connors by giving him a formula left by his father, allowing the latter to produce a serum that regrows a limb of an amputed lab rat. Connors missing himself a forearm, he is very tempted to use it on himself, and pressure from his management to illegally test the serum on unknowing humans makes hime use it. Parker makes himself a superhero costume, equipped with devices projecting Oscorp's super-threads. Connors's experiment turns him into a giant lizard, and wreaks havoc in the city trying to prevent his manager to test the serum on humans. Spider-man, understanding that he is responsible for the lizard's existence tries and stop him. The chief of the police doesn't like Spider-Man the vigilante, and that places Peter in a thight spot, since this person is also the father of Peter's girlfriend. Connors, becoming evil in his Lizard form, wants to turn the whole city into lizards, and plans to use for that purpose a device that would disperse the serum over the whole city. Peter asks his girlfriend (who happens to work at Oscorp and to be very smart) to make an antidote, and uses the device for spreading the antidote instead of the serum. In the end, Connors reveals he has some responsibility in the death of Peter's parents.
