I think it's almost universally agreed upon that Spider-Man's costume and origin story are about as perfect as they get. Anything else would be trading down.

I'm not sure Brock should be a high school student. It makes him slightly less imposing. And it makes his inevitable screw-ups more forgivable.
With your take on Uncle Ben's death, Peter was still trying to do the right thing. The entire point of the lesson was that Peter's arrogance/ failure to do the right thing resulted in horrific consequences.
If there's a relaunch of the entire Marvel Universe, I would expect there to be one of the Punisher as well. But this version of the Punisher is too easily manipulated. I don't know if they should have a strong bond, although I do like the idea of Frank Castle as an influence on the budding superhero.
I'd save Fisk and the Punisher for at least the second arc, because neither has anything to do with Spider-Man's origin. It also makes Spidey's first story into a team-up, which doesn't quite fit the character.
The first Raimi movie had a few that I think improved things as well. Having the burglar carjack Ben instead of following Peter home simplified things tremendously. I also like Bruce Campbell giving Peter his hero name. (The Human Spider? That sucks, kid.)
Highly Evolved Creature Totally Orientated on Revenge.
Personally i think it is high time that the Spiderman comics should get a reboot and start over again.Here are just a few ideas i have for the Comic Spiderman Reboot.
It completly reboots the Spiderman comics.
The first storyline of the Spiderman reboot will deal with Spiderman's Origins
In the Spiderman Comic Reboot..Peter Parker is in highschool and is 17 years old.
Peter Parker is still a very smart nerd but he doesn't get picked on as much as he used to.
Peter Parker is in a relationship with Mary Jane.Gwen Stacy was Peter Parker's Girlfreind but he broke up with her two years ago
At some point Gwen Stacy will find the Venom Symobite and will become Venom.She will not only have a vendetta against Spiderman (For not saving her father) but she also has a vendetta against Peter Parker (For Breaking up with her).Gwen Stacy Venom won't be as strong as Eddie Brock's Venom but she is still a worthy oppent for Spiderman.She later finds out that Peter Parker is Spiderman
Norman Osburn will not become Green Goblin until much later
After the First Stroyline.The Second storyline will be about the Punisher be hunting Spiderman because of the Kingpin and what happens in the first storyline
The thrid storyline will focus on Gwen Stacy becoming Venom
Venom,Doc Ock and the Lizard will be the main villains but there will be plenty of villains (Old and New) that will fight Spiderman
Spiderman personality is very much like his personalty in the Amazing Spiderman Film
Spiderman's costume will be very simler to the Spiderman's costume in the Amazing Spiderman Film
In the first storyline..Uncle Ben will be killed..and that is the main reason Peter becomes Spiderman
The Origin of Spiderman will be simler to the Amazing Spiderman film
All the villains will get a new redesign..Kraven the Hunter will get the biggest chance in his design
Miles Morales will make a apperence and will become SpiderBoy.Spiderboy will be introduced in the 5th storyline
Spider Girl/Woman will not be featured till much later
Eddie Brock will not be in the Amazing Spiderman Comic Reboot
Some of the storylines will be simler to the Old-School Spiderman Storylines
Gwen Stacy will not end up getting killed
Mary Jane will be Peter's girlfreind for a couple of years
Harry Osborn will be introduced as Peter's freind and will be a huge fan of Spiderman
Flash Tompson will not be in Amazing Spiderman Reboot
Jameson and the Daily Bugle will be introduced in the 6th-10th storyline
Each storyline will be 6-8 issues long
When he was 2 years younger..he was pretty much a jerk
The Venom design will not change all that much
So there is just a few of my ideas for the Spiderman Comic Book Reboot..i will post more ideas later

Also, I think 'the public' are sick of origins. If you rebooted Spider-Man, start where he has been a superhero for a little while at least - maybe with his first supervillain fight. If your reboot is successful, your origin story can come later via flashbacks. AND you can link future events to your origin, eg Green Lantern Secret Origin.
