"“You’re the best of all of us, Miles. You’re on your way. Just keep going”-Aaron Davis"

If we’re being honest, if Aaron Davis (the Prowler) never found out that Miles was Spider-Man, he would have killed him. There’s no doubt about that. Viewers saw how aggressively he chased Miles in the subway and how viciously he attacked him and the other heroes at Aunt May’s house. This was going to end with Aaron killing his nephew. Thankfully, he stopped before it was too late.  That still doesn’t change one thing. Aaron Davis is the villain.

It looks like most of Aaron’s adult life was spent doing dirty work for the highest bidder. This time,  Wilson Fisk was paying for his services. As most comic book fans know, Fisk is one of the worst people of all time. There’s no telling the kind of things he paid Prowler to do. Besides going after Miles, Fisk paid him to help kill that universe’s Peter Parker. Again, making him the villain.

Was Aaron Davis on his way to being redeemed? Most likely. Viewers saw how he reacted to seeing his nephew as Spider-Man. Aaron also changed his ways in the comics as well. However, this is hypothetical. All any of us can go on is what we saw. And, from this writer’s perspective, the Prowler was a villain who helped Wilson Fisk and the Green Goblin kill Spider-Man.
