Is it time for the Ultimate 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.
