When bitten by a genetically modified spider, a nerdy, shy, and awkward high school student gains spider-like abilities that he eventually must use to fight evil as a superhero after tragedy befalls his family.
Released in 2002, the year of Spider-Man's 40th anniversary.
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 your average ordinary guy, not a care in the world... somebody lied.
When Flash tries to beat up Peter, a crowd of students gather around them. When Peter knocks Flash down the hallway, though, those students have created an alley for Flash to fly through. Given the superhuman speed with which Peter punched Flash, none of the students would have had time to step aside, anyway - they would simply have been bowled down.
Towards the end of the closing credits the theme song from the original Spider-Man animated series is played.
