Why Miles Morales Is So Important | Blastoff Comics
Everyone needs a Spider-Man. I want Spider-Man to be anyone. I want there to be a Spider-Man that every comic reader can identify with. When I was younger, I was depressed a lot. I'm queer, it's not too unexpected.
There are a lot of superhero archetypes in comic books. Characters seeped in worlds of myth and magic like Wonder Woman and Thor. Supernatural characters like Ghost Rider and Swamp Thing.
Obligatory quick background information dump: Miles Morales, a. Spider-Man, is a superhero character with similar powers and costumes as the original and more well-known Spidey, Peter Parker. Eventually, following the comic series Secret Wars, Miles was brought over to the main Marvel continuity. If you happen to recall news coverage regarding the debut of a black Hispanic Spider-Man a few years back, Miles was the character in question.
