Shortly after the defeat of Doctor Octopus and his symbiont army from the previous game, super-villain Electro attacks New York using high powered weaponry that'll turn him into a god, leaving Spider-Man to save the day.
Did You Know?
In the game's original ending, Electro shouts "Top of the world, ma!" after he departs his battle with Spider-Man and he goes to the North Tower of the World Trade Center, thus giving Spider-Man the clue he needs to track him down for the game's final battle. When the towers were destroyed on 11 September 2001, the game was quickly pulled and re-released with an entirely new ending, in which Spider-Man just happens to correctly guess the unnamed building that Electro goes to for the game's final boss battle.
