The film begins with protagonist Peter Parker introducing himself, and his love for Mary Jane Watson (M.J.), the girl next-door with whom he is smitten, via off-screen monologue. The orphaned Parker is a high school student who lives in New York City in the Forest Hills neighborhood of the borough of Queens with his loving and elderly Aunt May and Uncle Ben. He is an intellectually precocious but socially inept teenager, too shy to even approach Mary Jane. His only friend is Harry Osborn, and even their friendship is tainted with jealousy by the fact that Harry's successful industrialist and scientist father, Norman Osborn, favors the brilliant Peter over Harry himself.
Peter Parker, Harry Osborn, and Mary Jane Watson visit a genetics laboratory with their high school class. While taking photos in the laboratory, Peter is bitten on the hand by a genetically engineered "super spider". Peter arrives home from the trip and passes out with the bite wound considerably swollen. Meanwhile, Norman Osborn, Harry's father, attempts to preserve his company's military contract from a rival firm. Norman personally experiments with a new but unstable performance-enhancing chemical vapor to increase his speed, strength, and stamina. Afterward, he goes into an uncontrollable rage and kills his assistant for previously suggesting to take the vapor "back to formula". The next morning, Peter finds that his previously impaired vision has improved to 20/20 and that his body has metamorphosized into a more muscular physique. When Peter goes to school, he finds himself producing webbing and having the quick reflexes to avoid being injured in a fight with Flash Thompson. Peter escapes from the school and realizes that he has acquired spider-like abilities from the spider bite. Quickly, Peter learns to scale walls, long jump across building rooftops, and swing via webs from his wrists.
Lying to his aunt and uncle about where he is going, Peter decides to enter a wrestling tournament. During an argument, Uncle Ben advises Peter, "With great power comes great responsibility." Peter lashes out at his uncle, and leaves for the tournament. Peter wins, but is cheated out of the contest money; in retaliation he allows a thief to escape with the promoter's gate money. Afterward, Peter finds his uncle has been carjacked and killed. Peter tracks down the carjacker only to find out it was the same thief he allowed to escape earlier. During the struggle, the carjacker falls out of a window and dies. Upon graduating, Peter decides to use his abilities to fight injustice, and dons a new costume and the persona of Spider-Man. Peter is hired as a freelance photographer when he arrives in J. Jonah Jameson's office with the only clear images of Spider-Man. Norman, upon finding out that Oscorp's board members plan to sell the company, attacks them at the World Unity Fair. Jamesons quickly dubs Norman as the Green Goblin. The Goblin offers Spider-Man a place at his side, but when Spider-Man refuses, the Goblin decides to kill him. Spider-Man escapes the confrontation.
At the Osborn and Parkers' Thanksgiving dinner, Norman notices Peter's wound from the masked confrontation and leaves shortly thereafter. Norman, now knowing Peter's identity, attacks Aunt May, and later kidnaps Mary Jane. Spider-Man finds the Goblin holding Mary Jane and a tram car full of children hostage on top the Queensboro Bridge. The Goblin tells Spider-Man to choose who he wants to save, and when Spider-Man refuses to choose, the Goblin releases both hostages. Spider-Man saves both Mary Jane and the tram car. Spider-Man and the Goblin fight in an abandoned building, where the Goblin is incidentally unmasked, revealing his identity. Norman attempts to remote-control his glider to impale Spider-Man, but the superhero evades the attack, causing the glider to impale Norman instead. After promising Norman not to reveal his secret to Harry, Peter brings his body back to his home. At Norman’s funeral, Harry swears vengeance toward Spider-Man, who he believes is responsible for killing his father. Mary Jane confesses to Peter that she’s in love with him, but Peter, feeling that he must protect her, hides his true feelings. As Peter leaves the funeral, he recalls Uncle Ben's words, "With great power comes great responsibility."
