And The New "Ultimate Spider-Man" Is.........

MILES MORALES!!! He looks awesome, he's half black, half Latino. I'm loving the fact that Marvel have decided to go with the the new "Ultimate Spider-Man" being black. Don't get mixed up with the comic book series and the TV show. The TV show still has Peter Parker, but the comics have the new guy. Parker was killed off by the Green Goblin in the "Ultimate Spider-Man: Issue 160" back in June.
I love this because there's not enough black superheroes in comics these days. The fact that we have a black President, says it all. Just the other day, Laurence Fishbourne was cast as Perry White in Zach Snyder's "Superman: The Man Of Steel".
There were rumors that Morales was to come out as a gay. That rumor has been proven false by Marvel. Now there would be nothing wrong with that, but I don't think it would go down very well with fans. I just hope Marvel keep this guy, because there has been a lot of racial things going on with fans. Some don't like him, but most fans and myself, think it's a great move. It's a risk, but it's great! Good luck Miles Morales..........
