Is it time for the Ul­ti­mate Spi­der- Man?

SFX - - Spider- man -

Spi­der- Man may be com­ing to the MCU but who’s to say it’ll be Peter Parker be­hind the mask? Sony are still de­bat­ing whether to use the orig­i­nal Web­slinger or his post- mil­len­nial re­place­ment, Miles Mo­rales. In­tro­duced in the al­ter­na­tive Ul­ti­mates re­al­ity in 2011, this black his­panic teen in­her­ited Spi­der- Man’s man­tle af­ter the death of Peter Parker in that uni­verse. The cre­ation of writer Brian Michael Bendis and artist Sara Pichelli, Miles re­ceives his abil­i­ties from an­other pesky ge­net­i­cally mod­i­fied arach­nid. His power set matches his pre­de­ces­sor’s, al­beit with a weaker Spi­der- sense, and is boosted by two handy ad­di­tions: the abil­ity to blend into his sur­round­ings and a paralysing elec­tri­cal sting he calls a “venom strike”. Iron­i­cally, a cou­ple of years ago An­drew Garfield cam­paigned for the char­ac­ter to take over his big- screen gig… Miles may not be as familiar to the main­stream as Peter Parker but he’d cer­tainly bring a wel­come note of di­ver­sity to the MCU as well as re­set­ting the Spidey saga to its teenage start­point.
