The Amazing Radioactive Spider! is a Radioactive Man comic story first printed in Radioactive Man #4.


Radioactive Man visits Zenith High School to give the students there a lecture about radiation. However, he doesn't actually know all that much about it, and decides to show off his powers, removing all the dust from the ceiling. In doing so, he makes a spider radioactive and it falls, biting Parker Peterman, a very self-conscious student who believes everyone hates him. Parker goes home and Radioactive Man is asked to talk to him by Principal Beck.

When Radioactive Man gets to the Peterman household, he finds that Parker has turned into a giant radioactive spider, and destroyed the house. His aunt and uncle tell Radioactive Man that he is no longer their nephew and that he should kill Parker. But Radioactive Man refuses and is knocked aside. He tries to blast Parker with radiation and makes him grow bigger instead.

Eventually, the military gets involved. They plan to lure Parker to the edge of the city so they can hit him with heavy artillery. Radioactive Man asks the general to let him try his idea, and the Captain gives in, against his better judgment. Radioactive Man heads back to Zenith High School and saves Buck Curtis and Liza from Parker, who was trying to get revenge on Buck. Radioactive Man is then trapped in a large, radioactive web. He then turned his body into a nuclear reactor and absorbed all the radiation, transforming Parker back into a human. However, Parker still has some remains of his powers, being able to stand on the ceiling. Parker wants to be a superhero but Radioactive Man says he's too neurotic to be successful.
