Marvel’s Spider-Man 2 ends with a bang, giving us startling reveals and setting the series up with an exciting future.
The story of Marvel’s Spider-Man 2 is full of exciting twists and turns that culminate in a bombastic finale. However, while the game’s ending is, for the most part, fairly straightforward, there are some reveals that fans may have missed. Fortunately, below, we’ve explained everything that happened and expanded on what it all means.
This article contains spoilers for Marvel’s Spider-Man 2.
Marvel’s Spider-Man 2 Ending Explained
At the end of Marvel’s Spider-Man 2, Peter, MJ, and Miles successfully destroy the meteorite that brought the Symbiote to Earth. In the process, they also destroy Venom, and remove his control over Harry.
Unfortunately, this leads to Harry’s death, as without the Venom Symbiote healing his body in order to keep the host alive, his illness takes over and kills him. Peter holds his best friend’s body while MJ weeps by his side. However, Miles, with his newfound abilities given to him accidentally by Martin Li, brings Harry back from the dead.
Peter, Miles, and MJ take Harry’s body out to the ambulance outside, where they meet Norman Osborn. He shouts at both Spider-Men asking them what they have done to his son, blaming them for his new ill-health. Norman then gets into the ambulance, which takes Harry to the hospital.
We then cut to Harry’s bedroom, where he is bedridden due to his illness coming back. Norman, wearing a crisp green jacket to let you know he’s going to go full Goblin mode, begins smashing things up with Harry’s cane, making Peter and MJ leave the room. He then makes a call, telling someone on the other end to get the G-Serum ready.
For those not in the know, the G-Serum refers to the Goblin Formula, a serum that gives the user superhuman strength and heightened intelligence, but also costs them their sanity. It is what turns Norman Osborn into the maniacal Green Goblin and arguably one of Spider-Man’s greatest villains.
Finally, before the credits roll, we cut to MJ recording a podcast episode in which she discusses how the events of the game have affected New York. She and Peter then head into their garage, where the new Emily May Foundation has been set up.
Peter gets a notification of a crime happening, and Miles appears in his costume, ready to go. However, Peter tells him that he’s giving up being Spider-Man and that New York is now his responsibility. Miles agrees, tells him to be Peter Parker for a while and leaves. MJ and Peter then kiss before the game ends.
