Theorists, we are here to talk about the ending of Spider-Man: Miles Morales. That is your warning. You see, at the end of the game Miles absorbs the giant blast meant to destroy his city and released it high above the skyline in order to keep people from being hurt. Well Miles, there is a slight problem with your solution. Miles, I am sorry to tell you that you did NOT save the city. Why? Watch to find out!

  • this math makes no sense.....

  • They should have went under water... There is water all over New York.

  • Welp if north Carolina is gone bye bye mr beast

  • I think matpat might be over qualified for being a EEcloner

  • Well no Miles does nothing wrong and if the tinkler fault halem wouldnt have been vapourised

  • Isn't it not an explosion but an electrical discharge? I thought this meant the "explosion" at the end is more a spherical lightning strike and not an atomic blast

  • The clothes change into invisible because his clothes aren't normal. There is something in miles and peters clothes which can make there powers work on them also considering both as great in science and engineering

  • I have this game

  • Not to be THAT guy but miles could have still absorbed all the energy, released enough "not all" of it, for him not to die but still saving Harlem. Also him releasing all that energy would not have been like a nuke/bomb/explosion it would have probably been more similar to a giant Tesla coil ionizing the surrounding air with electricity.

  • Did someone else see this? “Lets find out in 3...2..1-“ *Ad plays*

  • bro wtf did they do to Peter's face

  • 🎶Roxon, Roxon, they don't if you die.🎶(bad business because every ones going to die)

  • Tf is this a crash course?

  • matpat it didn’t actually do any damage in the game because.... *lore*

  • I mean... With some comic book logic miles isn't like packing it over a steel basically designed to detonate it but maybe he just absorbed it?

  • I enjoy these hypothetical scenarios as much as the next guy, however... could we get a follow up with the in-game scale of the blast in proportion to the affected-area? I'd like to see the "game-canon" result.

  • to be fair, it wasn't an explosion, it was an electrical discharge since he converted the energy in his body, it would damage the surrounding blocks with the lightning bolts you talked about but not explode.

  • How many lightning strikes would it take for it to kill miles?

  • 9:00 just one more percent for perfection and if that's happens everyone shall say "nice"

  • Not sure if anyone else commented but is there any possibility that Miles stored some of the energy? It looks like he was also still discharging some on the way down, albeit less, so maybe he DID save harlem by not discharging the entire blast?

  • So your basically saying.... HES A MENACE!

  • Well, this is just my theory. But, you can compare 2 different energy sources as one. And nuclear damage I would say would be more damaging than electrical damage (which I guessed it was because of the look of the explosion).

  • 7:34

  • Its clear that miles can direct and focus the direction of his venom so he if he directed the blast upward it would have prevented lots of damage

  • I understood immediately. Great video.

  • The way I understood it was that the explosion was an electric discharge instead of neutrons in an atomic bomb. Shouldn't it have been an EMP

  • My theory: logic doesnt apply because its a game

  • Spiderman, original version would know how to save the city as he is really smart

  • In the video game's defense, Krieger is a liar so the 500 year claim might be BS. The energy he soaked up might have been substantially less.

  • Theater kids disliked this video

  • HE SAID IT MILES CAN NUT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • This sounds like a J Jonah Jameson podcast trashing Spider-Man

  • And when he said detonate an ad saying OMG it's 10PM and my math homework is due in the morning.

  • Just me or when miles got picked up it gave me an advert about something going into space and climate bla bla bla

  • Trevor henderson OC pack

  • Trevor henderson

  • Srien head!!

  • But he absorb the energy not the explodium itself. Wouldn't that mean his discharge he did was 100% electrical especially since its proven miles himself didn't explode since hes alive at the end of the game? I never played the game myself but base off your video It should be said miles may not be able to hold the power but when he over powers he still has some control right? Btw I am not trying to debunk your theory just for the funs of it. I am just curious to see the true answer. But you can always ignore me and say miles killed everybody. It's just a series a question. A "Domas" Question.

  • To address your clothes being invisible gripe, I believe Miles's invisibility functions by bending light around him. Comic Peter Parker clings to walls by manipulating bioelectricity as well, and that passes through clothing. Miles's electrical shocks and invisibility are just an extension of that power. If the field passes through, you must call it true.

  • Matpat you forgot that miles explodes in electricity, like how he dose with the mini Roxxon generators throughout diffrent areas of the game

  • Matpat: mabey I should be the accountant for super villains *sinareo* Matpat: sir I dont think you should spend a million dollars on confetti for your "grand entrance" when showing your death ray, and may spend more on i donno....the security system because its outdated, hardly guarded, and have the weakest of minions!

  • Lets see in 3, 2, 1 *Ad*

  • Im in the video!

  • 1:11 that "cool" sounds like old minecraft hurt sound

  • Matpat: “Did Miles manage to save Harlem? Lets find out in *3.. 2.. 1...* “ *ad plays* God damn it matpat...

  • 1:05 What the F**k

  • Ha ha ha ha

  • can we pls get him to make that his theme

  • You ruined my childhood UnU

  • so at most its a emp

  • ita elictal

  • there is big miss

  • I’m always like mat pat it a video game real world rules don’t apply. But I’m always so interested

  • Next Sponser: Todays sponser is no surprise. RAID SHADOW LEGENDS

  • Lets find out in ! 3 2 1 Advertisment....get troll

  • So u want to tell me that spider man can nuke all of nyc

  • This is a game theory no this is a film theory =_=

  • I wonder if he’ll still be able to go invisible and venom punch at the beginning of the game

  • I would love an inverse theory about this. Given the actual electrical explosion, how much energy did Miles absorb, and for how long would that power Harlem?

  • Mat:The underground me: SANNNSSSSS!!!!!?????

  • 3, 2, 1- *add plays*

  • wow When I saw Corona as a Place....

  • 6:18 theres a country called corona lol

  • bruh

  • If Harlem gets deleted... uhh... let’s just say cancer won’t be cured until either a scientist takes my place or some teen with an ouija board awakens my spirit and I control him to make the cure to cancer.

  • But miles isn’t a bomb he is releasing energy in lightning for he would be releasing lighting bio-electricity also it looks like he is at the mid tear of clouds so you are kinda wrong

  • I am indian and i had seen homecomming

  • MatPat: *counts down for a bomb sequece* Ad: Let me take this moment for a bit and advertise.

  • Try analyzing the reason of the bio electrical powers in a video that doesn’t say plot convince

  • Lets see if milas saves helerm 3..2...1 *commercial plays*

  • You have to assume the electricity is way weaker despite the discharge shown after Miles emits it. I mean we're literally watching him used a lightning first that just kind of temporarily stuns guys people, with them still good enough to fight back

  • Hey Matpat! Can you make a theory about "Little Nightmares" and "Little Nightmares 2"? I have my own theory on the game too, but I want to see what do you think about it.

  • 2:17 Wait... That's not Tobey Maguire is is...? I tell ya, ever since the tea was rumored that he along with Andrew might be coming back for MCU Spidey, I've been gung-ho about these sorts of details which might as well be nothing... But hey, I'm a par of this theorist community, so honestly what else is new :v

  • And the kid's is still got room to grow just think of it he can do in his prime

    • Bro in the comics he defeated blackheart who defeated scarlet witch and Dr doom and hydra and almost killed galactus

  • Your assuming: 1. The energy he absorbs is still in the form of nuclear energy. 2. he absorbs all the energy. Nether of these assumptions are necessarily true. 1. Nuform is defiantly radioactive, however Spiderman's energy is stored biochemically, and released as burst of electricity. He absorbs the nuclear energy, transferring it to biochemical energy, then releasing it as a burst of lightning. (i.e. no concussive blast damage) 2. He also doesn't need to absorb all the energy, only enough to stop the nuclear reaction. He managed to absorb the energy before the reactor exploded, hence most of the energy in the nuform was not released.

  • :>

  • Why do u complain about miles what’s wrong with him

  • Was it only me, or was he correlating Amazon with an evil corporation. True, Matt, True.😄

  • So Miles Morales made some "Mass Destruction."

  • Matt can you make a theory on little nightmares

  • 1:02 matpat it could have easily been a costume compiled with his DNA like miro from Mha

  • All of this is rubbish. It’s just a game chill out bro.

  • Counter arguement: You forgot that miles didnt explode in a nuke, he exploded in a eletrical current

  • My argument Miles made an electromagnetic pulse so of they didn't die they definitely lost power

  • 0:21 what is that face

  • Not necessarily because he could have an extremely high capacity which could be just before the capacity of the and rather than discharging everything just discharging to his max capacity

  • "exaggerated swa-..."

  • So miles caused fallout?

  • Are we just going to act like Peter Parker doesn't kinda look like a bootleg MatPat?


  • This is in current the exploration would not destroy all of Harlem because the shock wave is an energy wave that would dissipate in the air because it’s such a good insulator so there’d be no shock wave like with a bomb, there’d be a sonic boom that would shock all of the city but it wouldn’t destroy it, it would most likely just shatter every window in the north east and send everything in a 100 mi radius flying but only like 75% of the city would be destroyed so still very similar to mat pats theory. But that’s just a guess a really bad guess thanks for reading

  • Spidermen and Spiderwomen are a menace and we need pictures of them!

  • his body absorbed most of the force... maby...


  • 3, 2, 1... IKEA ad plays

  • 3...2...1. AD

  • Movie or game developers should probably do the math and research before doing the shows and games

  • "Did Miles manage to save Harlem? Let's find out in..." "3..." "2..." "1..." **Ad plays**

  • Theory idea: Where does the pip boy get its juice to run on? Is it draining the host? (The one wearing it)

  • Who else thinks that the next spooderman game is a venom game
