In the "classic Spider-Man mold", [[Spider-Man (Miles Morales)|Miles Morales]] must juggle his high school life with his status as a superhero.
Miles Morales, a teenager who admires Spider-Man, struggles to adjust to his new elite boarding school and live up to the expectations of his parents, nurse Rio Morales and police officer Jefferson Davis, who views Spider-Man as a menace. After developing a crush on his classmate Wanda, Miles seeks his uncle Aaron Davis for advice. Aaron encourages Miles’ passion for graffiti and leads him to an abandoned subway station where Miles can draw. While there, Miles is bitten by a genetically modified spider, and develops spider-like abilities. Unable to contact Aaron, he returns to the station, and accidentally finds a secret laboratory where the Kingpin has built a particle accelerator to access parallel universes and reconnect with alternative versions of his wife and son, who died in a car accident. Spider-Man arrives to disable the accelerator and fights the monstrous Green Goblin and Kingpin’s mysterious new enforcer, the Prowler. During the melee, Spider-Man meets Miles and, sensing they are alike, offers to train him, but he is then wounded when the accelerator malfunctions. Spider-Man gives Miles a device to disable the accelerator. Miles escapes, but Spider-Man is brutally killed by Kingpin.
 
 
Inspired by Spider-Man’s sacrifice, Miles attempts to fight crime as well, but when he attempts to swing, the device is damaged. Miles is later approached by Peter B. Parker, an older, jaded Spider-Man from another dimension who has been brought into Miles’ world by the accelerator. Peter is separated from his wife Mary Jane Watson and needs to return home fast or he will die, so he begrudgingly agrees to train Miles in exchange for Miles’ help to steal data about how to repair the device from Kingpin’s research facility. They are confronted by Kingpin’s scientist, Doctor Octopus, and rescued by Gwen Stacy / Spider-Woman, another dimension-displaced heroine who had been masquerading as Wanda. She leads Peter and Miles to the house of May Parker, who is sheltering more lost Spider-Men, including Spider-Man Noir, Spider-Ham, and Peni Parker and SP//dr. While Peni repairs the device, Peter unsuccessfully attempts to teach Miles how to control his powers, and pressue from the group causes Miles to retreat to Aaron's apartment. Miles discovers that Aaron is Prowler and narrowly escapes from him. Miles tells the group of his discovery, but they are located by Prowler, Doctor Octopus, Scorpion and Tombstone, leading to a brawl. Aaron corners Miles, but refuses to kill him when he learns Miles is the new Spider-Man. Kingpin kills him, and Jefferson mistakes the new Spider-Man for Aaron’s killer.
 
 
As they prepare to face Kingpin, the Spider-Men choose to leave Miles behind due to his inexperience, webbing him up at his dorm room. Jefferson arrives to tell Miles about Aaron’s death and assumes Miles does not want to speak to him, apologizing for his mistakes and reassuring Miles that he believes in him. Uplifted, Miles escapes and visits May, who provides him with a new uniform, before joining the fight against Doctor Octopus and Scorpion, who are ultimately defeated. Miles operates the device and sends the Spider-Men back home, sharing a moment with Gwen just before Kingpin arrives. Miles and Kingpin fight throughout the accelerator, attracting Jefferson’s attention. Reaching the scene, Jefferson realizes that Spider-Man is not the enemy and encourages him, giving Miles the necessary motivation to knock Kingpin unconscious with his powerful “venom blast” and destroy the accelerator. The authorities arrest Kingpin and his enforcers, Jefferson recognizes Spider-Man as a hero, and Miles embraces the powers and responsibilities of his new life. Gwen later finds a way to contact Miles from her home universe so they can maintain their friendship, while Peter readies to earn back Mary Jane and the people’s respect.
 
 
In a post-credits scene, in the year 2099, Spider-Man 2099 learns about the crisis and develops his own dimension-hopping device to intervene. He decides to return to the beginning, but ends up getting into an argument with that universe’s Spider-Man.
