Posted June 22, 2015 by Richard Hoskins in Comics & Manga

Spidey from the Ultimates universe, Miles Morales, is officially a member of the Marvel universe after the shake up from Secret Wars

Brian Michael Bendis (writer) and Sara Pichelli (artist) will be in charge of a new on-going series starring none other than Miles Morales himself as THE Spider-Man of the Marvel universe. Co-created by Bendis in 2011, Miles was the Spider-Man of the Ultimates universe, a place where Peter Parker died. Taking on the Spider-Man mantle, Miles became the first bi-racial Spidey with his father being African-American and his mother Puerto Rican.

Due to the universe cross-over event, Secret Wars, the Ultimates universe was destroyed and Miles ended up in the good old regular Marvel universe. For now, the Spidey many of us know and love, Peter Parker, will seemingly take a back seat and act as a mentor for Miles. It’s unclear as to whether Peter will continue to have his own series but Marvel and Bendis have made it clear that they want to shake things up and make sure that everyone can see a part of themselves in the marvel universe.

Many kids of color who when they were playing superheroes with their friends, their friends wouldn’t let them be Batman or Superman because they don’t look like those heroes, but they could be Spider-Man because anyone could be under that mask,”.  “But now it’s true. It’s meant a great deal to a great many people…I realized my kids are going to grow up in a world that has a multi-racial Spider-Man, and an African American Captain America and a female Thor.”

– Brian Michael Bendis

What do you think? Will Miles live up to the great responsibility?
