Miles Morales will be a lead character in new animated movie and this is good news.
After the recent news from Sony confirming that Miles Morales will lead in new Marvel’s animation series, it’s important for people to understand why it’s so important for everybody.
Marvel Comics is not afraid to take risks, making changes to its fictional universe to better reflect the real world its readers inhabit. They made a bold one with the introduction of their new Spider-Man. Under his web-embellished mask is a teenager from Brooklyn, NY named Miles Morales, the creation of best-selling writer Brian Michael Bendis and artist Sara Pichelli, informing Urban magazine.
Like the original Spider-Man aka Peter Parker, Miles too was bitten by a radioactive spider, given extraordinary powers similar to his predecessor. Where they differ most is their ethnicity. Miles Morales is the son of a Black father and Puerto Rican mother. LAFA Music Group, LLC executive director Tye Ramos, a fan of Spider-Man since childhood, applauds Marvel for introducing Morales.
Ramos, born to a Mexican father and German/Dutch mother, tells Urban superheroes are meant to reflect our times. “There are millions of mixed children out there,” says the Southern Entertainment Award-winner and VH1 Save the Music Foundation Song of the Year recipient. “You make him one of the main superheroes? Yeah, that’s a bold and wise decision. “I would think he’s more relatable because today’s families are ethnically diverse,” Ramos adds. “Most children love to pick their favorite character because they can relate to them in some way. Now the new Spiderman is mixed.” Glyph Award-winning writer Alverne Ball doesn’t mix words when giving Urban his opinion on the character.
The author of hit comics OneNation, Virgin Wolf, and crime novel Only the Holy Remain says, “Socially, Miles represents for any young man and woman a change in the status quo of this country. His arrival makes him unique because he’s not only wearing the costume and persona of his Caucasian counterpart, Peter Parker, but his life and the trials he endures are a mirror of Parker’s world.Morales became his own version of Spider-Man
