Marvel’s Spider-Man has an new episode tomorrow in the morning which will introduce Miles Morales to this timeline and the title of the episode will be “Ultimate Spider-Man” which is appropriate. There are a lot of different ways that Miles Morales has been used in the Marvel universe, one where he replaces Spider-Man after he retires, another where they co-exist and Miles handles New York, while Peter Parker handles the global spider responsibilities. What will be interesting is how this new cartoon fits Miles into the universe and if we will see him stick around for a while or not.
MARVEL’S SPIDER-MAN – “Ultimate Spider-Man” – When Miles Morales is bitten by an experimental spider and gains spider powers, Spider-Man must teach him the responsibilities of being a superhero. This episode of Marvel’s Spider-Man airs Saturday, September 23 (7:00 – 7:30 A.M. EDT) on Disney XD. (Marvel)
With this version of Peter Parker he is truly still very young and very green so we don’t see how he could really be someone who will mentor Miles, it is almost like Peter will teach him the little bit he knows, but how will Miles continue to hang around? Hopefully we get those answers with the episode tomorrow and we love the introduction to the character, but it just seems rather early in the series unless you plan to use him as a recurring character. We also haven’t seen too much of this Spider-Man doing global work just yet, so again we have to see how this plays out. We do get to see a picture of Peter Parker, Anya Corazon, Gwen Stacy and Miles Morales together.
