Spider-Man: Gifts & Curses is an Virtual series created by writer/producer Jay Everington and an adaptation/re-imagining of Spider-Man, featuring a young Peter Parker as he attempts to cope with personal tragedy, while balancing school, work, his friends, and a budding romance, with his secret life as the masked crime fighter known to the world as Spider-Man. He unknownly is part of Project Renaissance is the U.S. government's attempt to use the mutant x-gene to create the perfect soldier. OsCorp CEO Norman Osborn is able to secure the contract for the project, but when crime lord Wilson Fisk gets winds of the situation, things take a deadly turn. Meanwhile, S.H.I.E.L.D. head Nick Fury is assigned the difficult task of overseeing the project, and ensuring all goes well.
The series is an adaptation/re imagining of Spider-Man. It follows a young Peter Parker through high school, and eventually college as he struggles to balance his family, friends, work, school, and his dual-identity as Spider-Man. The overall feel and style of the series will fall somewhere between the Ultimate Spider-Man comics, the Spider-Man movies, and Smallville.
The series begins on the first day of Peter's junior year of high school. This is the beginning of a new chapter of Peter's life, as he meets his future best friend Eddie Brock, a classmate with a shared trauma in Gwen Stacy, and begins to revive an old friendship/romance with former childhood friend Mary Jane Watson.
The recently-discovered mutant phenomena has driven the U.S. government to create project Renaissance; a highly-classified project designed to use the x-gene to create genetically-enhanced "super soldiers." OSCORP owner/CEO Norman Osborn is able to secure the contract for the project, but progress has been slow in coming, and Norman fears OSCORP may lose the contract, which would break the company. In an effort to speed up progress, he enlists the services of Wilson Fisk and his crime syndicate, who provide Norman with homeless "lab rats" for illegal lab experiments. With progress still at a standstill, Norman brings in Doctor Mort Stromm, who has a plan to use insect venom as a delivery method for the serum, which he claims will achieve Norman's goal.
