Telling the story of Miles Morales, a teenager who lives in Brooklyn, New York, the world he lives in is pretty average. He wins a scholastic contest getting him into Brooklyn Visions Academy, a higher end private school, however, he's reluctant to go due to leaving his friends and his popularity from his previous school behind him. This causes some tension between Miles and his father as not only does he not want to go to this school his father is proud of him for getting into, but the tension causes Miles to sneak out to see his Uncle who doesn't have the best relationship with his father. The movie then escalates when Miles gets bitten by a radioactive spider while he was out in an abandoned subway terminal with his Uncle graffitiing the free wall space. Soon after he gets caught up into the villain King Pin's secret lab in that very same terminal and gets saved by Peter Parker (aka Spider-Man), as he tries to stop King Pin's plan for creating a particle collider to open up a wormhole to another universe. However, in an attempt to stop King Pin, Peter Parker (as Spider-Man) is killed and leaves Miles with the power to shut off the particle collider through a flash drive handed to him before his demise. Through the first activation of the particle collider it opened up multiple other dimensions where different versions of Spider-Man's come through and enter Miles's world as he goes through trying to learn how to hone his Spider powers, who he is, the importance of family and doing what is right. In the end he learns how to be a hero and helps to save the day by sending his new found Spider friends back to their respective home worlds as well as shutting off the particle collider for good and thwarting King Pin's devilish plan.
