|~ Description from Stan Lee in the first game|
Spider-Man appears as the main character in both games. He is voiced by Rino Romaro who voiced the Webslinger in the Ultimate Spider-Man television series.
In the first game, the plot begins with Peter Parker at a Science Exposition hosted by the the supposedly reformed Dr. Otto Octavius (aka Dr. Octopus). An imposter of his alter-ego suddenly appears on stage, stealing the device that Octavius was showing to the audience as well as destroying the camera of Peter's reporter rival Eddie Brook, which triggers off his transformation into Venom (Spider-Man's Symbiote arch-rival and who also knows his true identity), who vows revenge. Spider-Man is now a wanted criminal and a strange fog is covering the whole city of New York.
After some survival tips from Black Cat and stopping a bank robbery led by a gang known as the Jade Syndicate, Spidey learns that his boss at the Daily Bugle J. Jonah Jameson is being attacked by Scorpion and sets off to come to his rescue. After stopping Scorpion, instead of thanking Spidey, Jameson calls onto the police to capture him. After escaping he meets with Daredevil who, after Spidey tells his story, believes him due to his extra-sensory powers. Suddenly a whole band of policemen in a helicopter attempts to capture him again, but Spidey successfully eludes them.
Black Cat appears and tells him that Venom has a message on the big screen for him and Rhino has been causing trouble at the high tech company Omnitek. Venom reveals that he is holding Peter Parker's wife Mary Jane hostage until Spidey meets him. Though his wife is in danger, Spidey promises Black Cat that he will help her stop Rhino as he has never forgotten the lesson he has learned about using his powers for others before himself, no matter how great the cost. He vows to take down Venom once and for all.
When the two arrive at Omnitek, the technology has already been stolen. Rhino appears and puts Black Cat out of commission, then turning his attention to Spider-Man. Spidey defeats him by making him charge into some electrical generators and petrol drums. He later watches Dr. Octavius appear with the police and help capture the villain. In his real identity as Peter Parker, he watches Black Cat being taken away in an ambulance but she tries to warn him that they are really kidnapping her.
Later he talks with Johnny Storm (aka Human Torch and member of the Fantastic Four) about his situation, who tells him to have faith in finding Venom. Venom suddenly appears and taunts him, leading to chase through a subway station, the sewers and finally a water pumping station where Mary Jane is being held. After a fierce battle, Spidey tells Venom how foolish he has been to believe Spider-Man to be a thief at the exposition as both of them were in the crowd that day while the imposter was on stage, thereby playing them against each other.
Realizing that Spidey is right Venom releases Mary-Jane and then decides to team up with his rival and find the real thief. They set off for the Daily Bugle to find any information about the expo robbery. They separate after Venom senses another dangerous Symbiote being around; Carnage, the most evilest of all.
Spidey then sees Symbiotes created by generators and destroys them by taking out the generators themselves and using one of their main weaknesses against them; fire.
After going deep underneath the Daily Bugle building, he finally meets the imposter, who is revealed to be another one of his enemies, Mysterio, Master of Illusion. Mysterio then used his tricks of illusion to grow into a huge giant, attempting to crush Spider-Man as well as firing laser beams and electrifying the floors. Spidey cuts off his power supply and shrinks the villain back to his normal size. Spider-Man then interrogates him, demanding to know who was behind the Symbiotes. Mysterio refuses to tell him and said that the Symbiote invasion could not be stopped. Spidey then smashes his helmet in anger and demands to know where they were coming from. Mysterio then told him to go to the waterfront to Warehouse 65 to find his answer and Spidey handed him over to the police.
He arrives at the warehouse and after exchanging conversation with Punisher, Spidey finds more Symbiotes made by even more generators and destroys them all. He then goes down a passage that takes him right to the bottom of the ocean. After avoiding laser machines and electrified floors, Spider-Man arrives at the central point where the fog was being released. He also finds Black Cat being held in a force field prison. Spider-Man then sets to work turning off the exhaust ports that are releasing the fog and shutting down the power in the process, which sets Black Cat free.
While Black Cat leaves to find help, Spidey goes off to find who is behind all this. He discovers that it is none other than Doctor Octopus who set up the ruse and had teamed up with Carnage in a scheme for world domination and was using the fog as a means to help Symbiotes adapt on Earth.
Venom appears and battles Carnage whilst Spidey battles Ock, who uses a force field to protect himself, but Spider manages to drain its power and defeats him. Ock then falls to the ground unconscious.
Venom is defeated by Carnage who then turns on Spidey himself. But Spider-Man defeats him by luring him into a sonic bubble in the middle of the room as high pitch sound waves are the Symbiotes' second weakness. After the battle, the symbiote leaves it's host Kletus Cassidy and then bonds with Ock who turns into a terrifying, monstrous, Monster Ock. Spidey flees for his life with the Symbiote scientist right behind him, whilst the lab is exploding all around them. After eluding the monster, Spidey watches as he is engulfed in a fiery explosion that separates Ock from the Symbiote. Spider-Man then concludes that the Symbiote had it's role in saving the scientist. Spidey and the now unconscious Ock make their escape from the lab before it is completely destroyed by a jet piloted by Captain America who was contacted by Black Cat about the situation. Venom and Black Cat are there too with Venom asking for Captain America's autograph, much to his annoyance. Ock is then sent to prison.
In the game's ending Spidey is playing cards with Daredevil, Captain America and Punisher, while Black Cat and Johnny Storm and dancing to some music.

Shortly afterward, the Superhuman Registration Act comes into effect, forcing heroes to register with the government and initiating the Civil War. Spider-Man can choose to join either Iron Man's pro-registration movement or Captain America's anti-registration movement.
As the Civil War continues, Spider-Man and the other heroes are forced to help Nick Fury in investigating the nanites that Iron Man and S.H.I.E.L.D. had been using in controlling supervillains. The heroes discover that the nanites have evolved into a large collective intelligence known as the Fold, which seeks to assimilate every life form on Earth. Nick Fury himself is assimilated, forcing Cap and Iron Man to temporarily suspend the Civil War so that all heroes can fight the Fold.
Although several major hero teams are defeated across the world, Spider-Man and his allies manage to establish a new base of operations on Wakanda. There, the heroes manage to modify a stasis code that will allow them to defeat the Fold. To do so, they must upload the code in one of the Fold's repeater towers. Spider-Man and his allies go to Iceland and manage to upload the code, neutralizing the Fold. Suddenly, the heroes are attacked by Fury, who has been injected by a new set of nanites immune to the code. After a long and fierce battle, Spider-Man and his allies defeat Fury and purge him of the nanites. With the Fold defeated, the President of the United States declares the Civil War over and pardons every hero that joined Captain America's resistance movement.
