Plot

Harry Osborn is at Oscorp repairing his damaged Hobgoblin armor[1] while receiving a call from Ashley Kafka, who is complaining about the Midtown High School's gym teams having failed miserably in the recent competitive matches against other rival schools like Bilderberg Academy[2]. Meanwhile, Reed Richards agrees with Johnny Storm's idea to hold a dance on Saturday night as a means to celebrate Baxter Institute’s first successful school semester[3], while Peter Parker, Liz Danvers Rogers and Cameron Potts Stark host a seminar attended to by students from their schools at the Empire State University. In Latveria, Doctor Doom is shown overseeing the Oscorp files which he accessed thanks to Kraven the Hunter’s infiltration[4], and declares that his plans begin now.

Back in New York, Peter is in a shopping mall with Mary Jane Watson, who is trying out a few alternatives for what to wear at the dance. Just then, they suit up as Spider-Man and Tigra respectively when the city is attacked by a rampaging hulking robot of Oscorp technology. They defeat it and analyse its core in Baxter Institute, which Richards and Susan Storm recognize as Latverian technology. Just then, the robot sends a message from Doctor Doom, who announces his plan to use Oscorp's technology to bring all of Latveria’s rival nations, including America, to their knees. Richards / Mister Fantastic and Susan / Invisible Woman rally Johnny / Human Torch and Ben Grimm / the Thing to confront Doom in Latveria and stop his plan. As he confidently awaits for the Fantastic Four to confront him, Doom oversees the creation of more Slayers in a Oscorp facility near the Quest Aerospace fields through Norman Osborn's monitors and hijacks them, converting most of them into Doombots which go for a rampage. Alerted of the situation, Spider-Man and Tigra summon their friends (consisting of Liz / Starforce, Sam Wilson / Falcon, Kamala Khan / Ms. Marvel, Ned Leeds / Goliath, Cameron / Lightyear, Michelle Cage Jones / Wave, Teresa / Iron Phoenix, Nathan Quill / Star-Lord, Zoe Gillan / Gamora, Miles Morales / Kid Arachnid, Gwen Stacy / Ghost-Spider, Cassie Lang / Stature, Leo Alexander / Nova, Carlie Cooper / Skynet, Edith, Randy Robertson / American Knight and El Diablo), who make themselves ready and arrive in time to defend the city from the incoming Doombots and Slayers.

Spider-Man and his team battle Doom’s robots in the city’s ground while evacuating civilians, and S.H.I.E.L.D. units under Nick Fury’s commission, Pepper Potts / Rescue and S.H.I.E.L.D. Academy students battle the robots airborne in the Helicarrier. The Fantastic Four overcome several traps in Doom’s castle and confront him in his throne room. As Mister Fantastic, Human Torch and Thing battle Doom, Invisible Woman works to find a way to disconnect the robots, eventually finding out they belong to Oscorp in the progress. Harry dons the Hobgoblin armor and fights off the robots in his own, despite Spider-Man and his team (more closely Iron Phoenix) distrusting him. After destroying one of the Doombots, Harry learns from its memory core that Doom stole Oscorp’s technology and, fearful that his father will be facing accusations of involvement with Doom’s warpath, works to find a way to destroy the evidences, though not before Edith uploads some of the evidences in her memory software. Seeing that his robots are failing on the assault, Doom escapes from the Fantastic Four’s custody and heads to New York, where he confronts Spider-Man and his team up close.

Spider-Man provides his team time to finish the remaining robots by dueling with Doom himself, in a destructive fight across the city which ends up taking place in Oscorp. Harry attempts to take on Doom for stealing Osborn's technology, but is overwhelmed by the mad tyrant, who then absorbs his Hobgoblin technology, strengthening his armor. Spider-Man soon sees a power capsule which links Doom’s armor with Oscorp’s Slayers and Hobgoblin’s technology, and destroys it, weakening the robots and allowing the team and S.H.I.E.L.D. units to finish them off. The Fantastic Four returns to New York to see Spider-Man overcoming and incapacitating Doom, defeating him and forcing him to retreat. As Hobgoblin is accused of involvement with Doom's invasion and branded a public menace, Spider-Man and his team (reportedly named as "New Champions") are hailed as heroes for saving the city. While pleased with the outcome, Peter and his friends (now in possession of the evidences to expose Osborn when the time is right) vow to do whatever it takes to stop Osborn's next scheme. In the Oscorp building, Norman Osborn, despite relieved that the evidences were seemingly destroyed by Harry, is shocked to discover that the Goblin's essence is inside his brain and begins to suffer a dual personality disorder. Later at Saturday night, Peter and his friends are shown enjoying their dance in Baxter Institute, which is also attended to by Bilderberg Academy and S.H.I.E.L.D. Academy students as special guests, during which he is dancing passionately with Mary Jane.
