In the Marvel universe, Spider-Man was born in Queens, New York, but relocated to Forest Hills after his parents were killed. He was born to Richard and Mary Parker, who were both CIA agents. Before he was Spider-Man, Peter Parker attended Midtown High School and achieved high honors.
When attending high school, Parker was bitten by a spider, which he soon discovered had given him special spider-like powers. After Parker's parents were killed by a communist agent named Red Skull, he relocated and moved in with his aunt and uncle, May and Ben Parker, who became his surrogate parents.
