Miles Morales Is My Spider-Man ›

Posted at CBR -

First and foremost, Bendis proved that Spider-Man is more than Peter Parker. Responsibility and family are two aspects even more intrinsic to the wall-crawler than puny Parker, and it’s these two thematic elements that have pushed every great Spider-Man story into legendary status. Miles Morales already has a check mark in both of those boxes. The familial responsibility he feels is pushing him out of his comfort zone and into a new school, one where he can have opportunities his parents just can’t give him. While money-woes were as consistent as web-slinging in those old Stan and Steve stories, Peter Parker’s education was never in doubt. He was a bona fide genius. In the smarts department, Miles Morales seems much more everyman than Peter ever did, and desiring opportunities out of the reach of your socio-economic background is a modern obstacle that people can relate to.
