[This space will be used for a chronological history of Spider-Man, to detail events in the character's life. Please feel free to write up a brief history or simple origin (in your OWN words, not plagerized) to get the thing started. You may always add to the history or suggest changes. You can submit it as a post or send it to me in a message, and if it looks good, I'll add it to the main post.]
Peter Benjamin Parker was born to Richard and Mary Parker, Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.. At a very young age, Peter's parents were killed while trying to capture the third Red Skull. Peter was adopted by his loving Aunt May and Uncle Ben who lived in Forest Hills, Queens, in New York City. They raised and loved Peter and although he was very smart he became unpopular at school. While visiting a science exhibit, he is exposed to the bite from a radioactive spider. This caused Peter to gain the proportional speed and strength of a spider while also giving him the ability to cling to walls as well as warn himself of potential dangers using his spider sense. Peter immediately saw a financial side to his new powers and soon became a TV phenomenon after wrestling Crusher Hogan. After filming a television show, the studio is robbed and Peter lets the thief run past, saying "it isn't my problem, I only look out for number one now". That same thief later goes on to murder Peter's Uncle Ben. Peter, overcome by guilt, remembers the famous phrase "With great power, there must also come great responsibility". With these words Peter dedicates his life to crime fighting and helping others becoming the Amazing Spider-Man!
