The superhero seems to have lost his touch in the two years that lapsed since the original "Spider-Man" was released. Now, his spidey senses occasionally fail and some residents of director Sam Raimi's unauthentic New York still think he's a menace. With so much stress, it seems only natural that Queens-native Peter Parker (Tobey Maguire) would chuck his spidey suit into trash can in an alley because he is "Spider-Man no more." But what Peter soon learns from his Aunt May (Rosemary Harris), is an idea the audience is already familiar with Ñ everybody needs a hero. And Peter's need to be reminded of this notion only reminds the audience of the realness Marvel Comics' hero embodies. Though there is nothing Spider-Man can't conquer, Peter isn't quite as lucky, perhaps best portrayed when he moonlights as the Daily Bugle's high society photograph
