Peter Parker was a College student, moonlighting as a freelance photographer for the Daily Bugle. While conducting an experiment involving radiation, together with a classmate, Peter was bitten by a spider that had been subjected to a high dosage of radioactivity. Later Peter was chased by a hypnotized driver into a alley and almost crushed, when he suddenly jumped onto a wall and climbed up to the roof. He then told J. Jonah Jameson and Joe Robertson that he could get a picture of this mysterious "Spider-Man" that had been spotted. He went home, made a costume, and took a picture of himself on a wall. Jameson and Robertson believed it, and Peter used his powers and costume to fight crime, though he didn't want to.
