Marvel To Intro Bi-Racial Spiderman

NEW YORK - Marvel's new Spider-Man will have a new look.   Peter Parker, who was killed off in June's Ultimate Spider-Man Issue 160, will be replaced with a half-African American, half-Hispanic teenager named Miles Morales, according to a USA Today report.

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-Manrelaunches in September with a new No. 1 issue.

"The theme is the same: With great power comes great responsibility," says writer Brian Michael Bendis. "He's going to learn that. Then he has to figure out what that means."

 

“When the opportunity arose to create a new Spider-Man, we knew it had to be a character that represents the diversity—in background and experience—of the twenty-first century,” said Axel Alonso, Marvel Editor in Chief. “Miles is a character who not only follows in the tradition of relatable characters like Peter Parker, but also shows why he’s a new, unique kind of Spider-Man—and worthy of that name.”

Although Morales will appear in the next Spider-Man issue, the crime fighter's real identity will not be revealed until September with the release of Ultimate Spiderman and a new No. 1 issue.

According to creators, Peter Parker will remain Spider-Man within the Marvel Universe but not in the comic book's 11-year-old Ultimate line, which explores "what-ifs" and differing storylines.
