Throughout the entire movie of “Spider-Man: No Way Home” Peter Parker was repeatedly victimized.  After watching the movie, I decided to make a review/story about the plot. Throughout this story, there will be spoilers so if you have not watched the movie do not read this story. 

“Spider-Man: No Way Home” takes place just right after its earlier film “Spider-Man: Far From Home,” with Mysterio revealing his identity. Things go downhill for Peter from this scene on. 

After this scene we see Peter and MJ enter his home. With MJ and him trying to distract his aunt and Happy so they don’t know what happened the news is on and they see many people outside of their house. Later they are taken into custody. Thankfully a lawyer, Matt Murdock or better known as Daredevil, was able to get the charges on Peter dropped. However, they have to move somewhere else. 

In a few scenes later we see Peter and his friends getting rejected from the colleges so he stupidly goes to Doctor Stephen Strange to rid the people’s memory of Peter being Spiderman instead of just going to the people who run the colleges and trying to change their minds. 

This ends up getting botched by Peter when he changes the spell over five times and makes a hole in the multiverse, which leads to villains from Peter’s different multiverses. One is shown when he ends up saving the person who helps the college. Doctor Otto Octavious, known as Doc Ock, attacks Peter in the middle of the highway. 

Peter has to now deal with Otto and save civilians at the same time. He also must succeed in doing this with the lady who is the MIT assistant vice chancellor saying that I will talk to the school about you and your friends. The Green Goblin ends up attacking Peter but Doctor Strange summons Peter through a portal, with two villains already captured. 

Strange is beyond mad. He then tells Peter that due to him botching the spell, the spell summons everyone who knows Peter is Spiderman and from all the universes to their universe. Strange tasks Peter to find the other villains, capture them and bring them to the holding cell. 

Once Peter captures all of the villains, they figure out one crucial detail about this. When they return the villains back to their decisions they face the fate they were given with three of them dying. The three being Doc Ock, Electro, and Norman Osborn. Peter decides to step in here stopping Strange from sending the villains to their fates which will kill them. 

Peter decides to give the villains a second chance at life, then return them home where they will have new fates instead of the three dying. When he brings them to his house things only get worse. 

All of the villains excluding Doc Ock turn on Peter and try to kill him. Things get worse when Green Goblin kills Aunt May. Before May dies, however, she gives Peter her dying words we usually hear in the Spiderman trilogy by Uncle Ben: “With great power comes great responsibility”. 

He later leaves the dead body of May thereafter special ops come into the place. We then see from Ned’s and MJ’s point of view that they end up summoning the other two Spidermen (Tobey Maguire and Andrew Garfield). 

“I would love to continue to work with Tobey and Tom,” said Andrew Garfield on the Happy Sad Confused podcast. 

The two Spidermen then altogether leave to go and find Peter. With Peter and the other Peters beginning their plan to defeat the villains, which include freeing Ock’s tentacles from controlling his brain, getting rid of Electro’s powers, a new goblin cure for Osborn, and turning the Lizard back to human, bring them back to their dimension. 

In the end with the help of Otto, they end up defeating them and are able to send them back but with a cost. Everyone in the multiverse forgets who Peter Parker is.
