Meet Miles Morales
This is who has Comic Book Racists up in arms.
In the June issue of Ultimate Spider-Man (which by the way is an ALTERNATE REALITY of the Spider-Man universe) Peter Parker died. Like “died” died. Or as dead as folks can get in comic book lore.
So along comes Miles Morales, a half-Latino half-Black teenager who personally knew Parker. And he puts on the Spider-Man suit. So the bad guys don’t know Spidey is dead. Even though he kind of feels like a fraud.
But story development pales in comparison to the sacrilege of his dark skin?
I don’t want to live on this planet anymore.
