Holy shit. Were all gonna die! Theres a spaceship! Everybody hide!Peter Parkerand Ned Leeds[src]
On a field trip, Leeds was listening to music, whenPeter Parkertapped him on the shoulder to ask him to cause a distraction.

Ned Leeds is a highly intelligent science enthusiast, hacker, gamer, and geek, though he is also somewhat socially awkward, hence his close friendship withPeter Parker. Leeds is strongly displeased with being the school geek and wishes to become more popular. Initially, upon discovering that Parker is theSpider-Man, Leeds wanted to use his friends alter-ego for rather selfish needs such as making himself and Parker more popular by claiming that Spider-Man was their close friend.
Leeds was very excited that Parker is a superhero and immediately wanted to be his guy in the chair. After realizing that criminals couldve killed Parker multiple times he began to take the Spider-Man more seriously and genuinely wanted to help Parker capture theVulture, offering support whenever he could.
