Ultimate Universe’s Spider-Man Miles Morales took on the mantle of Spidey after the death of Earth’s Peter Parker, and quickly became a fan favourite. Now Morales is set to head up the All-New All-Different Marvelverse as the main Spidey.
Writer Brian Michael Bendis spoke on the news of Morales entering the Marvel’s hall-of-famers:
For our baby to have grown up and flat-out earned his place in the Marvel Universe, as Spider-Man, is frankly so much more than we could have hoped for when we first sat down to design him and his life. When it became clear that I was going to follow Miles into this new adventure, I was really hoping that Sara [Pichelli] would see the value in it being both of us that do this together. I was thrilled that she agreed immediately.
Sara Pichelli, one of the first artists to create the new Spidey’s look, had this to say:
In 2011, when I worked on the very first issues of the Ultimate Spider-Man book, I couldn’t even imagine that I was helping create what quickly became an instant-classic. I feel proud and lucky at the same time that Brian and the Marvel team chose me to be part of that.
