Marvel is introducing a new character that embraces the racial melting pot of the US and is sure to give its minority readers a hero


Meet Miles Morales, a half-black, half-Hispanic teen and the new Spider Man. He will appear in Marvel Comics’ Ultimate Fallout issue on Wednesday. Morales will be taking over the role of Peter Parker, who was killed in the Ultimate Spider-Man Issue 160, which came out in June.


USA Today reports that his position will start off small: he will merely break up a fight in his first appearance. But the comic book will continue to develop the character’s background and future endeavors. In the re-launch of the series in September, readers will be captivated as they learn about his true origins and how he became the new Spider Man.


Writer Brian Michael Bendis reveals that the theme with this new Spider Man will remain the same: “with great power comes great responsibility.”


“He’s going to learn that. Then he has to figure out what that means,” Bendis said.
