Miles Morales is a Marvel Comics character created by Brian Michael Bendis and Sara Pichelli. His origins are in the Marvel “Ultimate” Universe, where he arrives as the newSpider-Man not long after Peter Parker had been killed.
Miles is from Brooklyn and he is of Hispanic (Puerto Rican) and Black (African American) descent.
Miles was bitten by a genetically enhanced Oscorp spider, a stowaway in his Uncle Aaron’s bag. Miles later discovered he received super-human abilities like camouflage, increased agility, and a stun blast.
To avoid confusion in the Disney XD animated series UltimateSpider-Man, Miles Morales isn’t called Ultimate Spider-Man, or even Spider-Man: He is known as Kid Arachnid.
Miles has appeared in several Marvel Comics that take place in the Ultimate Universe and has also crossed over into the 616 Universe, notably in the mini series Spider Men, where he meets the 616 version of Spider-Man/Peter Parker.
Aside from appearing in the Disney XDUltimate Spider-Man animated series, Miles Morales is rumored to be the focus of the upcoming Spider-Man animated feature from Sony.
Miles Morales hasn’t been portrayed in Live Action yet, and there haven’t been any announcements of anything in the works, but many fans believe his time in the Movie spotlight is on the way.
