Miles Morales is a fictional superhero that appears in comic books published by Marvel Comics. He was created by writer Brian Michael Bendis and artist Sara Pichelli, and first appeared in “Ultimate Fallout” #4 in 2011. Miles Morales is part of Marvel’s Ultimate Universe, an alternate universe within the Marvel Comics multiverse.
Miles Morales is of Afro-Latino descent and is a teenager from Brooklyn, New York. He takes up the mantle of Spider-Man after the death of Peter Parker in the Ultimate Universe. The character gained significant popularity for bringing diversity to the Spider-Man character and introducing new elements to the Spider-Man mythos.
Miles Morales possesses powers similar to those of the original Spider-Man, Peter Parker. These powers include superhuman strength, agility, and the ability to cling to walls. He also has the “venom blast,” a bio-electric shock that can incapacitate enemies. In addition to his unique powers, Miles has his own set of challenges and personal experiences that distinguish him from Peter Parker.
The character’s popularity expanded beyond the comic book world, especially after the release of the animated film “Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse” in 2018. The film featured Miles Morales as the main protagonist and introduced audiences to the concept of the multiverse, showcasing different versions of Spider-People from various dimensions.
Miles Morales has since become a well-established and beloved character in the Marvel Universe, appearing in various comic book series, animated TV shows, and video games. Notably, he is the titular character in the video game “Spider-Man: Miles Morales,” released in 2020, which further explores his story and adventures as the friendly neighborhood Spider-Man.
