At some point, Peter Parker was bitten by a genetically altered spider.
Sometime after Doom rose to power, Peter Parker joined the Defenders, a small group of people fighting against Doom, under the alias "Slinger". The Defenders spent much of their time waiting for the "Thunderer", a being prophesied to arrive and defeat Doom.
The Thunderer eventually arrived, in the form of Thor. The Defenders brought him back to their base, though Slinger was suspicious of him.
When the Helicarrier Was ambushed, Slinger, along with the other Defenders, were captured by Doom and set to be executed publicly. They were freed when Doom's Brain Trust and the Black Bride betrayed him. Doom was defeated, and Thor was sent back in time to ensure his rise to power never occurred.

Multi-Purpose grenades: Slinger makes use of several types of grenade, including flash bangs and smoke grenades.
Slinger's outfit and use of firearms is seemingly based on the Spider-Man of the Noir Universe, though the "spider legs" on his back are reminiscent of the Iron Spider Armor.
