Meet The New Spider-Man!

| Filed under: Bookz

No, not Andrew Garfield. This is more for the comics people out there.

We feel compelled to put a SPOILER ALERT here for those of you who still read the comics but are a bit behind. We wouldn't read ahead if you are committed to the mythology.

For the rest of you, here's the sitch:

Peter Parker is dead. Yeah, let's just get that out of the way right off the bat. We don't know all the details of how he meets his demise, but from what we're told, he dies in the Ultimate Spider-Man Issue 160 that was released in June. So, buh-bye PP!

In his place rises a new hero - Miles Morales. The half-black, half-Hispanic begins to spin his own web as of Marvel Comics' Ultimate Fallout Issue 4, though he won't truly become Spider-Man until the Ultimate Spider-Man series relaunches in September with a new No. 1 issue.

We don't know much about the boy's story; just that he will become the new superhero in a similar way that Peter did and that he'll be getting loads of help from Peter's Aunt May and his lady Gwen Stacy. We also have a first look at what this new Spider-Man will look like - in the old suit (above)and the new one(below).

Thoughts??? We have to say, we appreciate the steps the company is making to include new nationalities and incarnations of classic characters to be relatable to this generation of readers.

Do U agree???

    THAT IMAGE IS A SPOILER.



  2. 2

    We'll not only did they kill off Spiderman, they killed off all of their paying customers….



  3. 3

    Is he an "AT-RISK" kid, released from juvie-jail & raised in the projects, with an illegal mother from Mexico & a felon father locked-up in Folsom State Prison, with a sister who is addicted to CRACK & hooks along the sleazy strip motels?



  4. 4

    Hope they're not counting on the minority community to increase circulation sales.



  5. 5

    they destroy EvERYTHING they put their hands on, just like obama and his silverback wife

    So, why did they even bother killing Peter if they're continuing with Spider-Man's story?!
    This makes no sense at all!
    Lame!

    "…We don't know much about the boy's story…" As if Perez! Every newspaper in the country is reporting that fact the new Spider-Man is… wait for it… he's GAY! As if you and your cronies didn't know that. Nice try.

    Great, we're screwed. Instead of saving us from evil doers, now he's just gonna hang out at home with 25 family members that live with him, smoke weed, never work, dodge chlld support from his 4 baby mamma's, and blame whitey for all his problems. Damn that green latern, now we'll never know safety and justice.

    spiders are indeed parasites

    Diversity is a huge topic in comics today, but to be fair, this is in the Ultimate Universe, not the main universe (616). But it's a step forward I guess…

    Lol this is like how they want Willow Smith to play freaking Annie, when will they realize it just doesn't work and it never will. Some things are meant to be a certain way so stop changing things.



  12. 12

    Re: SarahNJ – Why don't you say what you really mean? Some things are meant to stay WHITE? Bitch, please. New Spidey is a brotha, and new Annie might be a sista. Get used to it.



  13. 13

    Re: April_Rain – Yeah exactly what I mean, you can't change stuff like that because it's not meant to be that way. You are so ghetto, ew.



  14. 14

    Someday, a movie producer will be bold enough to take a traditionally African-American character and cast a caucasian in his or her place………and all Hell will break loose.



  15. 15

    why is everyone mad about spider man being a minority,not every super hero needs to be white.i think it's great.



  16. 16

    Wow. Tiger Woods should sue.

    Re: Da_Rev – Have you never seen the 1952 version of Othello?

    FLMAO!!!

    It doesn't make any sense to battle with those who leave racist comments about this. It's just like politics, you cannot change their opinions no matter how morally right your case is presented. I for one, am very pleased and happy that there's a chance that I can actually play a traditional superhero.



  20. 20

    Why Tiger Woods?

    I'm not happy about a new Spider-Man. It's not race related, it's simply because it's not Pete. Pete is Spidey, the new kid should be something original. The death of Peter Parker is what really has me loathing all this.
