COMICS: Marvel Announces New SPIDER-MAN Series Starring 'Miles Morales'

The creation of a biracial Spider-Man made waves in the comic book industry back in 2011, and today it's been revealed that Miles Morales will star in the new Spider-Man title post-Secret Wars from his two creators, Brian Michael Bendis and Sara Pichelli. Hit the jump for more!

The New York Daily News has revealed that Marvel will launch Spider-Man, a new ongoing title from writer Brian Michael Bendis (Ultimate Spider-Man, All-New X-Men) and artist Sara Pichelli (Guardians of the Galaxy, Spider-Men) in the wake of Secret Wars. The series will star biracial teenager Miles Morales, the Spider-Man of the Ultimate Universe, who was created by the duo in 2011 after the death of Ultimate Peter Parker. "Many kids of color who when they were playing superheroes with their friends, their friends wouldn't let them be Batman or Superman because they don't look like those heroes but they could be Spider-Man because anyone could be under that mask," Bendis explains. "But now it's true. It's meant a great deal to a great many people."

The site confirms that Miles will be front and centre in the All-New, All-Different Marvel Universe (as suggested by the promo images released several weeks ago), with 616 Peter Parker serving as a mentor to the character. "
Our message has to be it's not Spider-Man with an asterisk, it's the real Spider-Man for kids of color, for adults of color and everybody else," Bendis says, reiterating Marvel's recent push to diversify their leading characters (including Jane Foster taking up the mantle of Thor, and Sam Wilson becoming Captain America). Below is promotional art for the series by Pichelli, with the first issue landing this fall. Are you excited to see Miles step up to the forefront of the Marvel U?
