In late 2015, at the age of fourteen, Parker was bitten by a spider and acquired superhuman powers, including strength and speed proportional to that of a spider and an uncanny ability to adhere to walls. Resolving to use his abilities to help those in need, Parker developed his own synthetic web fluid and Web-Shooters to use when battling criminals in New York City as the masked superhero Spider-Man. To keep his identity as Spider-Man a secret, Parker maintained an unassuming lifestyle, refusing to join the football team or do anything he would not have done before.
Not all heroics were successful, in one instance he webbed a man trying to get into his car, which he had mistaken for him attempting to steal the car. This resulted in the man's car alarm being set off while he demanded to be free of the webbing. This, in turn, landed Spider-Man in a lot of trouble among the neighbors, with the man yelling out while Marjorie also yelled out from her own window as Spider-Man awkwardly attempted to resolve the matter peacefully. 2b1af7f3a8
