PlotEdit

Moments after Spider-Man returns to New York City with MJ, J. Jonah Jameson broadcasts doctored footage of the London incident in which Quentin Beck frames Spider-Man for the drone attack and his death, exposing Spider-Man's secret identity to the world, much to Parker's shock. Followed by the media, he takes MJ to a bridge where he tries to digest the moment with Ned.

A media frenzy and a police investigation starts. Matt Murdock manages to get the charges against him lifted. However, the revelations severely disrupt his life and lead to all his and his friends’ college applications, including their applications to the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, being rejected.

He decides to go to Doctor Strange in the Sanctum Sanctorum, asking him to cast a global spell throughout the Multiverse to make people forget he is Spider-Man. Wong warns him of the consequences, yet Strange pays no heed and casts the spell which Peter damages, which leads five enemies of other Spider-Men in their universes such as Dr. Otto Octavius, Green Goblin, The Lizard, Electro and Flint Marko to arrive at the main universe.

On Queensboro Bridge, Parker tries to convince a MIT administrator to accept Leed and Jones’ applications. Octavius arrives and attacks the bridge using his tentacles, leading to a battle, in which Octavius realizes that this Parker isn’t the one that he knows.

Spider-Man, with the help of Leeds, Jones, and the Sandman who has also come through, later fights and captures Electro. Upon seeing Electro vanish and learning that this Peter Parker is different, the Sandman suddenly distrusts Parker, but is fortunately captured as he begins to attack. Osborn is retrieved after going to a F.E.A.S.T. building seeking help. Strange wants to send the quintet, including The Lizard who he captured off-screen, back to their respective universes. However, Parker wants to cure & help them before sending them back in order to prevent their deaths. He frees them and confines Strange in the Mirror Dimension after a fight, taking the quintet to Happy's apartment.

Parker successfully cures Octavius by using Stark technology to engineer a device to replace his broken neck chip. Cures are also developed for the Goblin and Electro; however, the Goblin persona takes over Osborn before the cure can be administered. The Goblin then manipulates Dillon into removing the device that Parker put on him to cure him and, despite the best efforts of Parker and Octavius, the other four escape. After a fight with Parker, the Goblin throws a pumpkin bomb at May. Peter tries to deflect it but it's not enough; he fails to save her and May is killed. The Goblin escapes, while Peter is left broken over his aunt's death. Meanwhile, MJ and Ned learn how to open portals using Strange’s Sling Ring which they use in an attempt to find Peter, only to find another Spider-Man from Electro's and Lizard's universe and the Spider-Man from Goblin's and Sandman's universe.

Peter is found by Leeds and Jones who comfort him, then meets the other Spider-Men from their universes, who share their own stories of losing loved ones and encourage him to fight in May's honor. They cooperate on curing the remaining quartet and find the enemies at the Statue of Liberty. Ned and MJ follow them and Strange arrives. The three Spider-Men battle the enemies together and MJ nearly falls to her death. Peter tries to save her, but he is taken by the Goblin. The Peter of the Lizard/Electro universe saves her, bringing him closure having failed to prevent the death of Gwen Stacy in a similar manner. The three Spider-Men, along with Octavius who arrives on the scene to help, manage to defeat the quartet using cures they developed earlier after a lengthy battle. Peter reconciles with Dillon and encourages him to let go of his villainous tendencies.

By sunrise, a wrathful Peter brutally attacks the Goblin as revenge for May's death. He takes his glider and prepares to kill him, but the Peter from Goblin's universe stops him, only to be stabbed by the Goblin. Parker defeats the Goblin and injects him with the cure, restoring him to a regretful Norman.

To prevent further catastrophe and under Peter’s request, Strange fixes the spell leading to the quintet and the 2 Spider-Men being sent back and everyone forgetting Peter. He tries to tell MJ the truth, but cannot bring himself to do it. Peter visits May's grave, joined by a Happy Hogan who is now oblivious to his identity, and vows to carry on.

In a mid-credits scene; Eddie Brock sits in a bar and discusses with Venom about other superhumans and the recent events that occurred in this universe. He suddenly glows and is transported back to their universe, unknowingly leaving a part of the symbiote on the counter.
