I think his story is great and he's the only black spider-man that we have, he's one of marvels best selling series as of now, and it's not like they completely got rid of Peter Parker. I just started reading comics last year so I don't really know what makes a story great too some people but I think the writing and the art are beautiful in the series so i don't understand why many people dislike Miles so much.

I'm entirely indifferent.

I'm really enjoying the story, as well. People don't like Miles Morales because he's....well, not Peter Parker. People don't really like change, on the whole.

I love Miles!

And I have to agree with this:

I think people don't like him (or didn't initially anyway) because he's pretty juvenile, and the only reason he's Spider-Man is because Marvel wanted to be PC for the sake of being PC. However I like him ok and I think he has a lot of room to develop.

I always got the impression he was very well liked. You can't please everyone though.

I haven't read him, so I don't have an opinion on him one way or the other. But as others have suggested, I just sort of don't think I want to read a Spider-Man story where Spider-Man isn't Peter Parker.

I love him just on the fact that Glen Beck had a problem with him......

i liked miles morales as the new ultimate spider-man. i hope they continue to develop his character, villians  and give him a good love interest.

People don't or didn't like Miles because he isn't Peter Parker. People just generally hate change in comics for some odd reason, so any change in what character is underneath the mask gets automatically shut down

Love Miles.

Couldnt care less that he's black, he isnt peter parker, thats been my complaint from the very begining. If marvel made pete black from the very beginning in the ultimate universe i wouldnt have givin two ****s as long as he was still PETER MOTHER****ING PARKER.

Dont get me wrong though im lovin the current run, even if he got his powers in an almost exact same way as peter.

I don't dislike Miles. I dislike how he is portrayed. Allow me to elaborate.

  • 1. He's too young. 13 c'mon really? Peter was 15 and that was borderline. I mean as a 15 year old you begin to think slightly like an adult but you're still impulsive and do things wrong allowing for good story telling. At 13 you would not even be considering or thinking along the lines Miles is. Bendis wants him to be 13 but he's portraying him as a 15-16 year old for no apparent reason, this also makes him harder to relate too. Make up your god damn mind Bendis. This also eliminates any type of love interest short of puppy love as seeing a 13 year old hook-up is creepy......and illegal IIRC.
  • 2. They didn't give his origin any originality or any real thought. Bendis just sat down and thought "hey i'll have another Spider like the one that bit Peter bite Miles". In my opinion that was lazy and a complete waste of a new take on Spider-man. Why not make him a mutant with spider-like abilities or give him an entirely different origin.
  • 3. They didn't give us time to grieve Peter. He dies and Bendis suddenly throws another Spider-man at us who we are meant to simply accept. Had there been some background on Miles such as him appearing in the pages of Ult Spider-man before Peter died it would have made the transition less painful and most likely would have made people less angry as he'd be an integrated character we all liked.

So to sum it up they wasted a big opportunity here. We could have had an entirely new Spider-man with a unique outlook of an age most people can relate too. Instead we got Peter Parker Version 2.0 with a generic origin and an age that does not fit his personality making him nigh-impossible to get any sort of relation too.

well id find it a bit boring if all the spidermen were and adult or a teen but its just my opionion

I just read the first 2 issues,and i can say it's ok.....i liked it,and i will certainly will continue reading it....as long as they treat the memory of Peter good....which Bendis does so far.

Just 2 questions...

  1. Why does Miles's Uncle looks totally like Snoop Dog,and....
  2. Why does he wear a blue Deadpool mask?!

Many people actually like him:

And SOME people don't like him because:

1.He's black

2.Because he's not peter parker. Which is the main reason why most people don't really favor him.After that HUGE heartbreaking,childhood pushing moment of Peter's last stand,we just instantly get a replacement thrown in our face as if peter was a random stranger.And Peter is always the true spider.Not reilly,not kaine,not morales.Peter.

A different take on "The Prowler".

To answer the question, I love Miles Morales' character. And as far as his stories go, he has the most emotional stories i've ever read. There were some issues where I was in complete tears. This page gets me all the time. =(


The fact that he accidentally killed someone (albeit a criminal), the fact that that someone is his uncle and father's brother, and the fact that his father now hates spider-man(miles) more than anyone else, is why this is so tragic in my opinion. This 13 year old has been through alot.

people do like miles its just that the ultimate universe in general is disliked and less popular other than miles it just seems like a way for the writers to do stupid retarded stuff to popular characters and get away with it like having quicksilver and scarlet witch be a couple the ultimate marvel comics are mostly garbage mostly.
