!!!Peter Parker/Spider-Man
Bitten by a radioactive spider on a school field trip, young Peter Parker attempted to cash in on his new powers, and signed up for a pro wrestling contest, and pinned the champion. When the promoter cheated him out of his winnings, Peter stood by as a thief robbed the promoter.

The same thief later killed his Uncle. Peter began using his newfound powers responsibly and began fighting crime. One of the first criminals he faced was The Green Goblin. When The Goblin learned that it was Peter under the mask, he attacked his Aunt May, and kidnapped the girl he loved, Mary Jane. After a dramatic battle, The Green Goblin revealed himself to be Norman Osborn. Seconds later, The Goblin was killed when he accidentally impaled himself on his glider.

He later began studying at ESU, along with his dream girl Mary Jane and his best friend Harry, the son of The Green Goblin. Harry isnít aware that his Dad was The Green Goblin, and hates Spider-Man, believing he murdered him. Peter makes his living by selling pictures of Spider-Man to J. Jonah Jameson. After being ripped off one too many times, he decided to start selling video footage to Empire1, where he met Indy, a research assistant who took a great shining to Peter.

Peter is still in love with Mary Jane, but feels that being with her would only jeopardise her safety again, which often leads to awkward feelings between the two of them, especially as he recently began seeing Indy [[spoiler: before he was tricked into throwing her off a building by the Gaines twins]].

[[spoiler: Vowing never to let Spider-Man hurt anyone else, Peter threw his Spider-Man costume into the river and stopped being Spider-Man]].

!!!Mary Jane Watson
Mary Jane has been the object of Peterís desires since he was in the 2nd grade. After previously being engaged to Flash Thompson, she later moved onto Harry before she fell for Spider-Man, after he saved her life. Later realizing that she loved Peter, Peter rejected her love because he didnít want to cause her any further harm due to his double life as Spider-Man.

She later began majoring in drama at Empire State University, where she remained good friends with Peter and Harry. She still has feelings for both Peter and Spider-Man, not knowing they are really the same person.

* HeroesWantRedheads

!!!Harry Osborn
Never short of snappy one liners, Harry Osborn is the best friend of Peter Parker, the two of them live together off-campus and attend Empire State University together. Harry tends college for the social life, rather than the education, as he controls the majority of the stock from his late Fatherís company, Oscorp.

Despite being Peter and MJís best friends, he hates Spider-Man, blaming the wall crawler for his fatherís death, unaware that he was The Green Goblin. Still struggling to come to terms with his Dadís death, Harry is often found drinking or trying his luck with the ladies.

* BrilliantButLazy: As evidenced by the quote:
--> Kids. Try to get them to spend their time wisely, like, watching R-Rated [=DVDs=]. But noooo... they can't wait to do their web research.
* DeadpanSnarker: Possibly more so than even Peter in this series.
* StrongFamilyResemblance: Looks quite similar to his father, Norman Osborn. Commented upon by MJ.
