COMICS: Will SPIDER-MEN Be The End For Miles Morales?

COMICS: Will SPIDER-MEN Be The End For Miles Morales?

Well, probably not, but Jim Cheung's cover for Spider-Men #4 features a beaten down Miles Morales in the arms of Peter Parker! Marvel Comics Editor-in-Chief Axel Alonso also comments on the ramifications of the series and the choice of Mysterio as villain.

"There's no point in doing a story of this scope if nothing comes of it," teases Marvel Comics Editor-in-Chief Axel Alonso in an interview with Newsarama. "Epic stories almost always do something to change the characters or the universe of the characters. You can assume this story will have ramifications, for either or both of the characters. Will we revisit that line between the Ultimate Universe and the Marvel Universe? There might be clues in the story." Pretty intriguing, eh?

While there's no indication that Miles Morales will end up like the Ultimate Universe's version of Peter Parker, the cover above is still pretty ominous. As for what makes Mysterio the right villain for the series, he added, "Mysterio is the right villain for the story. This isn’t one of those "it is all a dream" stories. We wouldn't go there. That would be silly. That's not an option when you trot out something like this, let alone on Spider-Man's 50th anniversary."

To read the rest of the interview, be sure to click on the link below to check it out. How would you feel about the regular and Ultimate Universe crossing over again in future? Axel Alonso certainly seems optimistic. "It all comes down to story. The easiest pitch is, "Let's have so-and-so fight so-and-so." You have to be able to answer the questions that follow: Fight over what? What are the stakes? Why will people care? Where do you leave the characters once things have occurred? There has to be a reason for the punches."

Fogs - 5/9/2012, 3:16 PM
why Parker has the Abobo face?
BIGBMH - 5/9/2012, 3:19 PM
Miles is great. USM is great. F#$% the haters.
Talontd - 5/9/2012, 3:20 PM
Lol @ all the MILES MORALES hate....

Careful @PATIENTZERO, your getting too close to the truth! ;)
Upgrayedd69 - 5/9/2012, 3:20 PM
I hope he doesn't die, I prefered Ultimate Parker but in my opinion Morales is better than 616 Parker right now. Even if the death of Miles meant the resurrection of Parker somehow, I would be pissed. Let Peter stay dead, with so many deaths in comics being reversed, it would be nice to have a character stay dead, no matter how awesome he was

Why can't people appreciate two spider men? There's two hulks for gods sake. Green and red. And don't forget Ben Reily. Miles isn't even from peters universe. People just need to accept it

kill him !!
MrBlueSky - 5/9/2012, 3:23 PM
Reminds me of this:

SageMode - 5/9/2012, 3:25 PM

Most of the hate towards Morales comes from the fact that he's not white, whether people want to admit it or not. Which is pretty sad.
PsyGuy - 5/9/2012, 3:27 PM
I hope not!!! It'd be a shame
CaptainObvious - 5/9/2012, 3:28 PM
Wow, even the Spider-Man in comics can't keep his mask on.
MARVELFAN1995 - 5/9/2012, 3:29 PM
I'm not even a little racist but, I grew up with one Spider-Man,, Peter Parker.
HavocPrime - 5/9/2012, 3:33 PM
Hope not, I like the new Ultimate series of Spider-Man
SageMode - 5/9/2012, 3:33 PM
I could really not give a damn about Ultimate Spider-Man Peter Parker, as long as they don't kill off the 616 version. If Morales stays as Spider-Man in the Ultimate Universe, I don't mind

"There's no point in doing a story of this scope if nothing comes of it,"


:') Bitch, please.
LAWLZY96 - 5/9/2012, 3:40 PM
For all the "there's only one Spider-Man!" people...yes and that Spider-Man is still around.

Wildaniel - 5/9/2012, 3:43 PM
I like this cover. I dont think he dies, he just got shot or something, lol, he will be ok.

@PatientZero you're 100% correct
76cidgrad - 5/9/2012, 3:49 PM
To all of you who claim the ability to read someone's mind and determine they are a racist,please post all the correct answers to all the questions in life so we can all agree with you...
MarkV - 5/9/2012, 3:49 PM
Maybe they can get married?
SHHH - 5/9/2012, 3:51 PM
In Miles We Trust...
MJPETTY7 - 5/9/2012, 3:54 PM
One can only hope...

For those who think I hate him cause I'm racist, I LOVE the new Aqualad!!!!! So, obviously not a race issue!
AutobotCommander84 - 5/9/2012, 3:56 PM
@PatientZero I'm part black, so how would I be racist for not liking Miles Morales? I just don't think his story is that interesting, especially considering he's basically in Peter's shadow the whole time. Also, his origin story doesn't have the depth that Parker's had. Parker learned a lesson which is why he became Spider-Man, Miles became Spider-Man because the other one was dead.
comicb00kguy - 5/9/2012, 3:57 PM
Again with the juvenile name-calling by those who can't understand the fact that some of us just don't like Miles Morales for a variety of legitimate reasons. Grow up! Learn some tolerance!

I see Morales as nothing but the creation of a focus group trying to improve sales among targeted demographic groups- like Poochie the Dog from the Simpsons. He's completely uninteresting and unappealing to me.
TruePunishment - 5/9/2012, 4:02 PM
I couldn't give less of a shit what happens in the Ultimate universe. It was a good idea for the time and had some good stories but after Ultimatum, this universe can implode on itself for all I care.
BrotherStarkofMABMindz - 5/9/2012, 4:04 PM
Its about damn time
I'm the real black Spider-Man
revloveR - 5/9/2012, 4:07 PM
xD the reactions. children.
TH3TRUTH007 - 5/9/2012, 4:08 PM
hopefuly considering he was molested by uncle ben
dellamorte1872 - 5/9/2012, 4:17 PM
i completely agree with your analogy of POOCHIE THE DOG @CBG. i have often compared several things like that in the industry to that scenario as well. DEMOGRAPHICS breed characters
Sanderman - 5/9/2012, 4:20 PM
he's not dead.. and from the look of peter's arm it looks like he may be going black as well lol
TheDesertGorilla - 5/9/2012, 4:21 PM
Who the hell is Miles Morales?
ibravosp5 - 5/9/2012, 4:21 PM
I just noticed that no one complained when Ben Reilly was spiderman, But When Miles Morals is the new spidey people all of a sudden become racist.
SpideyPeterParker - 5/9/2012, 4:27 PM
I find it complete ludicrous crap when people play the race card, and they think they are being smart with their non-sense assumption.

I really don't care about Miles. I hope he does die. Many people thinking themselves to be smart, come to false conclusions...simply because Miles is black.

If they came up with a white Black Panther, or a white Blade with a separate story, I wouldn't want that either and I would want them to be killed off too. So are you know gonna call me racist because I don't want the white versions? How can I be white racist and black racist at the same time? Complete and utter, ludacris bullshit assumption if you ask me.

The word is originalists my friend...and many people prefer the characters they've gotten used to.

Well said.. there is only one Spider-Man and his name is Peter Parker.
Mcandrews - 5/9/2012, 4:29 PM
HE'S NOT BLACK! KILL HIM!.... so much racism. wish i knew why. and if you are black, your not allowed to have an opinion or else "it's bias". he's not dead, miles hasnt even got his suit damaged yet, he hasnt even been hurt yet. this issue will probably do just that. doesnt mean hes dead. the racist need to stop commenting and realize how idiotic they are. im black. but i like miles cuz hes a good character. his race doesnt mean shiyt to me, hence y i was a spider man fan to begin with. you never see black ppl go "oh why is green lantern white? oh they just want to please the white fans and be "PC"."
this racism for the sake of being racist is stupid.
dbzmaster789 - 5/9/2012, 4:29 PM
I thought Mysterio was dead?
mctrinket - 5/9/2012, 4:33 PM
Peter Parker is the only Spider-Man, now and forever.
SpideyPeterParker - 5/9/2012, 4:45 PM
I don't think the internet was even around when Ben Reilly made his first appearance into the comic books. And I don't know about you but when Spider-Man 2099 came out, there was no online bulletin to sound out voices of disapproval.

Frankly I don't care about them either. If these comic books had just came out and they had an issue showing the demise of either of these alternate Spider-Men, not many of us would care.
marvel72 - 5/9/2012, 4:49 PM
how is it racist,i don't even read ultimate spider-man so i couldn't give a shit if he lived or died.

there is only one spider-man & his name is peter parker,no one can replace the original in all the classic characters i.e spider-man,captain america,batman or superman.

the original is always the best.
UrbanKnight - 5/9/2012, 4:49 PM
[email protected] racists! and [email protected] racism!! For those of u that secretly are.
I mean i feel those of u that are use to Peter Parker i am too! he will always be spider-man to me but its time we see some diversity i mean its 2012.
Minorities are about 30% of the us population. fairly speaking there should be 1 minority superhero for every 4!
How many can u count?

The solution is to create a holy original ones, yes, but doesn't mean you should kill Miles!
If some of you think his stories suck does not mean they can make great ones down the line!
