Spider-Man: into the Spider-Verse is an amazing computer animation and a welcome addition to the list of cool Spider-Man movies. The animation is like comic reading, the way the characters are introduced and the action sequences, just feels like you are flipping through a comic book.
The voice acting is golden, but not as golden as the way the movie depict the last action sequence scene where our hero and his fellow partners save the day.

It seemed not possible for Miles to take down Kingpin, but he did. The way he was able to do it are the things that set his Spider-Man apart from the rest when taking on this universe’s Kingpin.

The movie is set in a shared multiverse called the Spider-Verse. The Spider-Verse is filled with alternate versions of Spider-Man and not all are Peter Parker. Also, not all are white or male.
The fun and difference between animation and live-action is that everything the writers and director can imagine can be done. There seems to be no limitation and so we can see in the story telling of the below plot.
Miles, while spray painting with his uncle was beaten by a radioactive spider and became a version of Spider-Man.
The Kingpin in Miles’ universe blames the Spider-Man (Peter Parker – Miles’ universe) for the death of his family. This Spider-Man is known by the public as Peter Parker. The Kingpin along with Olivia "Liv" Octavius (Dr. Octopus of Miles’ universe), created a particle accelerator to access parallel universes, so that The Kingpin can reconnect with alternative versions of his family.

While Spider-Man and Green Goblin where at it, Miles wondered into a lab where this fight was on going. He and Spider-Man met and immediately knew the other was a version of Spider-Man. The Goblin, working for Kingpin and wanting to stop Spider-Man pushed him into the particle accelerator beam. This mortally hurt Spider-Man leaving him close to death, but his thrust into the beam unleashed all the other versions of Spider-Man into Miles universe.
Before this mortal injury had his toll on Spider-Man, he gave Miles a USB disk, telling him this will destroy the accelerator. He tasks Miles with stopping Kingpin, before Miles ran off and Kingpin killing Spider-Man.

Soon Miles runs into another Spider-Man named Peter B. Parker from another universe and together they tried to stop Kingpin, when they were faced with Octavius. Then another version of Spider-Man (Spider-Woman (Gwen Stacy)) saves them. The trio then goes to Aunt May’s house hoping to get to remake the USB disk that has been damaged when they were introduced to other versions of Spider-Man staying at Aunt May’s house.

The Spider-Men and Women versions teamed up and took on Kingpin and his plan.

Seeing the other Spider-Men and Women get into their roles makes me wish this was a TV-series with many episodes waiting to be engulfed.
That said, this universally acclaimed animation is pulling in some money and it better pull in enough, so we can get to see this happen again.
