As he tries to balance the pressures of teenage life with those of fighting crime, Peter learns about love, life, family, friendship – and what it takes to translate great power to great responsibility – as he encounters the vilest villains, falls for the most heartfelt loves, and faces his most dire crises as he battles the forces of evil.
