A few days ago, I posted about a new Spider-Man being revealed in ‘Ultimate Fallout’ #4 after Peter Parker died in ‘Ultimate Comics Spider-Man’ #160. A few hours ago, USA Today revealed an exclusive story with the identity of the new webslinger.
According to the story:
“….the new Spider-Man in the Ultimate universe is a half-black, half-Hispanic teen named Miles Morales. … In his first appearance, he simply breaks up a fight. But readers will learn the true origin of Morales and how he became the new Spider-Man when ‘Ultimate Spider-Man’ relaunches in September with a new No. 1 issue.”
Marvel’s editor-in-chief Axel Alonso says of the new Spidey:
“What you have is a Spider-Man for the 21st century who’s reflective of our culture and diversity. We think that readers will fall in love with Miles Morales the same way they fell in love with Peter Parker.”
Also revealed is that the new Spider-Man will not have the exact same powers as Pete but what the new powers are, no one has revealed.
Both September’s ‘Ultimate Spider-Man’ #1 and Wednesday’s ‘Ultimate Fallout’ #4 will be available on Marvel digital as well as traditional print at your local comic shop.
