MILES MORALES / I DID NOT THINK THAT IT POSSIBLE TO IMPROVE THE SPIDERMAN CHARACTER.
Updated: Jul 20, 2020
I didn’t think you could improve on the character of Spider-Man. Peter Parker’s story was the closet to those of us who grow up in a single parent home. Closest to those of us who were smarter then people treated us. To those of us who were broke all the time. I used to think that he was the best we could hope for in an Industry that largely underrepresented the stories of people of color. Then Brian Michael Bendis and Sara Pichelli went and flipped the script for us by introducing Miles Morales to the Marvel Universe. An Afro Latino Teenager from an alternate universe who gets bit by a genetically modified spider giving him amazing spider like powers. After the Spider-Man from that universe is killed, he reluctantly takes on the webbed mantle. Later, fully embracing his role and responsibilities as "The Amazing Spider-Man". Relevant story arcs, amazing art, and a powerful image of a POC Superhero. #milesmorales #spidermanintothespiderverse #spidermanmilesmorales #superheroesofcolor #mutantorminority
