After gaining powers from an irradiated spider, Peter Parker (Spider-Man I) reasoned that a human-spider needed webs like a real spider. Using his scientific knowledge, Parker developed a means of producing an artificial webbing which he administered with a double-tap on the triggers of his wrist mounted devices which would eventually become known as Web-Shooters.
