It's time to meet Miles Morales, the all-new Ultimate Comics Spider-Man and most talked about super hero of the century! Marvel's Ultimate Comics Fallout #4 hit shelves earlier this fall, introducing readers to, Miles Morales - a 13 year old of African American and Hispanic heritage from Brooklyn, New York. Like Peter Parker, Morales was bitten by a genetically-engineered spider that granted him powers. The creation of a biracial Spider-Man became an important milestone in not only comic-book history, but pop culture history as well with every major media outlet worldwide covering this announcement. Marvel believes that Miles Morales is the perfect fit to carry on the legacy of Spider-Man in the Ultimate comics Universe; he represents diversity, in both experience and background that defines today's generation. Editor in Chief Axel Alonso - who's also of Hispanic descent - stated, "Miles is a character who not only follows in the tradition of relatable characters like Peter Parker, but also shows why he's a new, unique kind of Spider-Man-and worthy of that name."
 
The chart-topping team of Brian Michael Bendis (writer) and Sara Pichelli (artist) began this historical journey in September's Ultimate Comics Spider-Man #1, giving readers a chance to learn the origin one of this important new pop culture icon. "Brian and Sara have created an important new character in Miles Morales, one that speaks not only to the diversity-in background and experience-of a modern reader, but also to what it means to be a super hero in today's world" said Alonso. The Ultimate Comics Spider-Man provides the same high-flying, wall-crawling type of adventure readers have come to love, but this time with a whole new reborn twist.
  
So what is this new Ultimate Comics Spider-Man capable of? Morales displays enhanced strength and agility, as well as Peter's trademark "Spider-sense", which gives him the ability to sense oncoming danger. He also has the gift to render himself invisible. His signature power is "Spider Stinger", allowing Miles to paralyze a person with the touch of his hands, and later sticking on solid surfaces. With all these new abilities he realizes that with great power comes great responsibility and even greater danger!
