Miles Morales The Amazing Spider-Man
Written by Urban Mogul Life on August 2, 2011
So there is a brand new Spidey in town. Ladies and gentlemen meet Miles Morales, a half black and half Hispanic crime fighting teenager.
Writer Brian Michael Bendis, who has scripted every issue of Marvel’s Ultimate Spider-Man since it first debuted in 2000 to wide acclaim, maintained a new hero would replace Parker, felled in the pages of “Ultimate Spider-Man” No. 160 this summer.
But as to whom that was a closely guarded secret, until now.
Bendis said that the decision came down to the story, to keep it fresh and vital and new.
Morales, he explained, is nothing like his predecessor.
“He’s younger than Peter Parker, he’s coming from a completely different background, a completely different world view,” Bendis said. “It’s Peter Parker’s death that inspires this kid to step up.”
We wonder how long Miles will have the job!
