Meet Miles Morales, voiced by Donald Glover! (x)
I just imagined that, after Peter died, Deadpool was super depressed. And then a new spidey showed up and he was super happy. He passed off the costume change because Spidey tends to do that, and waved off the smaller build with a shrink ray or de-aging gun or something like that because you never know with villains these days.
And so lil’ miles finds himself stalked by Deadpool, the villains going after him being strung up and freaked out. Once, a gunman clips Miles on the shoulder, and the man turns up dead.
Eventually, Miles catches him in the act, and is super confused. Deadpool just blathers on about how happy to see him back in the game, then runs off to do something else.
The next time they meet, Miles is in a rush to get back to his house. He finds Deadpool on a roof, who offers him a taco. He thanks him (Those pretty expressive eyes going all squinty with a smile) takes the taco and swings off.
Some other things happen where Miles doesn’t pick up on innuendo (He’s like, twelve, okay?) and Deadpool takes it as being embarrassed but not disliking it, so Deadpool starts making advances and Miles is oblivious.
And then this happens.
And then Wade would have to come with therms that the Spidey that he knows and loves is dead. And that he’ll have to realize that the Spider-Man going around town now is not his Spidey. And Wade won’t accept it at first cause that’s not Spider-Man, not the real Spider-Man. He’d ignore him and call him a knock-off. But Wade knows that he’s doing good just like Peter once did and that while Peter isn’t there anymore, he still has to give this guy some cred for doing something like that for his age.
And Wade might then just pop in on Miles every once in a while to see how he’s doing or tease him. And he’d try his best not to get too upset or made cause if Peter was there then he’d want him to be nice to him and treat him as he would treat anybody else (that wasn’t on his hit list or “You suck” list).
And then years go by and Wade is still immortal, and Miles is doing his best to live life and be spider-man and keep New York safe, trying to go to college.
And since Deadpool has been around, nearly since the beginning, he’s a weird sort of constant in Miles’s life. The Merc has always helped out when he could, tried not to kill innocents, to respect Peter’s memory. Miles was introduced to this life when he was young, so it’s the life he knows.
He tried dating normal people, but he needed someone who understood the lifestyle of a superhero.
And Deadpool was always there for him.
you know what i really fucking want though?
a miles morales movie
and then a jaime reyes movie
fucKING YES OMG
I was just ranting to the guys in the office about this
I’m pretty sure I’m gonna love Amazing Spiderman (haven’t seen it yet)
but why the hell did they not take this opportunity to make a Miles movie?!
and Jaime Reyes starting his Blue Beetle career
and being mentored by Ted and Booster
would get all of my money
This is *not* Spider-Man.
Yes, in fact, he is Spider-Man! Just in the Ultimates verse, though.
One whole book you have to deal with this amazing little kid being Spider-Man. I’m sure it’s such a pain for you, I hope you can get through!!!
No, but seriously though. Peter is in how many ongoings right now? 2 where is is the official lead (Avenging and Amazing— and in Amazing he has 2 issues every month) not to mention being part of New Avengers and the FF. This is just off the top of my head as I’m not a big webhead.
Miles has one book. One. And it’s being written and drawn spectacularly. He’s a great character.
He’s also important considering every other solo series at Marvel right now has a straight white guy lead.
Tough it out having one book that varies from that. You can do it.
Fanboy needs to get over his white, straight (and most likely Christian) male privileged dudebro fucking self. Miles is a fantastic character and if there can be three different Spider-women and two different Spider-girls - the world can handle two Spider-men.
And don’t you worry your little fanboy head - you’ll never have to read a 616 comic book with an African-American Peter Parker, a gay Captain America, or a Iron Woman (
although there’s nothing you can do about a Jewish Thing. HAH!). So quit your privileged whining about one of the best comic books out there.
Hey, guys, I’m a racist for not liking a boring character that just so happens to be a minority. Cool.
I don’t have time to explain to every idiot the difference between someone with white male privilege and someone who’s racist, so if you want to make yourself the victim and pretend we’re all calling you a racist - well you do that idiot!fanboy.
As for disliking Miles because he’s boring - well there’s nothing anyone else can do about your bad taste.
lmao I’m crying at this
seriously I bet he’s one of the dudebros who think Slott is a VISIONARY!! and that ASM has been AMAZING lately. Yeah sorry, you should stop complaining about a good book and start complaining about Slott putting out crap that apparently makes you desperate enough that you feel the need to look elsewhere for your Spidey fix.
(Because seriously, it’s one book set in an entirely different universe. If you’re that hard up for good Peter stories that you get whiny about him not being in ONE book, you should take it up with the people writing shitty Spidey stories. And if that’s not it, then you’re just a fanboy whining because zomg my favorite isn’t in every book ever!!! and you’re an idiot.)
