You thought Spider-Man into the Spider-Verse had the only Miles Morales? Think again.
Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse was a hit at theaters opening up with the No. 1 at the box office. While it did have a drop in weekend two, it was going up against three big-time names and still ended up pulling in $16 million. That’s something to be proud of.
There may have been other Spider-Beings in the movie, but this was Miles Morales’ movie and he even saved the day. Miles has become a popular character in a short amount of time. Comic book fans know Miles from the beginning, but there are a group of people who may only know Miles from the movie. Allow me to introduce you to some of the other Miles Morales’ in the Multi-Verse.
Miles Morales (Earth 616, formerly 1610)
This is the Miles Morales that started it all. In the Ultimate Universe, their Peter Parker died after defeating the Green Goblin (he slammed a truck on him) but also died protecting his family. Before he died, Miles was bitten by a different genetically altered spider. This one had the number 42 on it.
Miles felt that if he had used his powers instead of being afraid of them, Peter would have still been alive. Peter Parker was Miles’ Uncle Ben. He felt guilty and used that as a moment of clarity. He became Spider-Man.
Miles’ has the same strength, speed, agility and Spider-Sense that all of the other Spider-People seem to have. One thing that Miles has that a lot of them don’t is a camouflage mode and a venom-blast that shocks the nervous system of people he touches. These powers seem to have a greater limit than even he knows about. He’s even starting to have energy strings that come from his fingers.
Miles is different from a lot of the other Spider-Men because he has street smarts. He isn’t a genius on any level, but he makes up for it by being a more capable leader at an earlier age than Peter Parker was. Recently, he took that burden in Spider-Geddon and even found a way to co-exist with Otto Octavius (The Superior Spider-Man).
