These are times of change and the latest to embrace this change is none other than the comic book giant Marvel. We all know Peter Parker- our friendly neighborhood Spiderman. Now be prepared to see a new Spiderman, Miles Morales.
Miles Morales will become now the First ever non-white/ mixed race/ black Spiderman
Those who have been following the recent developments in the comics and world of Spiderman may even be aware of the character Miles Morales who have been very well appearing in the comics as a different version of Spiderman. But now his character has been shown the full light and is about to officially replace Peter Parker as Spiderman.
“Miles Morales, a teenager from Brooklyn with an African American father and Puerto Rican mother, has played a version of Spider-Man since 2011, but will take over the mainstream role from Parker this autumn.”

Miles Morales is the teenage son of an African-American father and Puerto Rican mother will become the first black character and second Latino to portray Spider-Man in the official Marvel Comics universe.
He appears in a series of comics set in an alternate universe where Peter Parker has died, and where he has reluctantly received a set of superpowers similar to Parker’s after being bitten by a genetically altered spider.
