If I recall correctly, his parents were S.H.I.E.L.D agents who were killed spying on the Red Skull.

in the Ultimate universe, Peter's father was a scientist who worked for SHIELD as part of the attempt to recreate the super-soldier serum as well as working with Eddie Brock Sr. on creating a 'suit' to cure cancer, which became the Venom suit. (Despite Bendis writing both USM and Ultimate Origins, he contradicts/retcons/screws up the storyline with first the Venom suit storyline and Pete's parents dying in a plane crash and then brings in the SHIELD thing and has Pete's parents killed by Banner's first Hulk-out.)
oh dear god. Can't anything in Marvel stand on its own anymore? Do they really need to bootstrap all this stuff together? It just reeks of amateurish fanboy wankism.
Parker's parents being spies dates back to 1968 - spies in the Marvel Universe usually means S.H.I.E.L.D.
