New PC ‘Spider-Man’ Following Death Of Peter Parker

PC SpidermanIn the Ultimates series, Peter Parker gets killed at the hands of his nemesis the Green Goblin. But, being a comic book series, no hero stays dead for long. While Peter Parker may be gone, a new kid is stepping into the tights: Miles Morales.

Miles Morales is a half-black, half-Hispanic (rumored gay [not that there’s anything wrong with that]) super-powered teen who gets into the hero game after being inspired by Parker’s death.

“He’s younger than Peter Parker, he’s coming from a completely different background, a completely different world view,” writer Brian Michael Bendis told the Associated Press.

This just warms my heart. I hope he stands for hope and change.
