Marvel's new Ultimate Spider-Man is black and hispanic

08.03.2011

Not movie news per se, but it might be one day, when Spider-Man is rebooted for the third or fourth time.

In the Ultimate Marvel universe, characters tend to actually stay dead when killed, and a while back Peter Parker met his final end at the hands of the Green Goblin. Marvel has now fashioned a replacement for Parker in the form of Miles Morales, a half back, half-hispanic teenager inspired by Parker's death to assume the mantle of Spider-Man.

"He's younger than Peter Parker, he's coming from a completely different background, a completely different world view," (writer) Bendis said. "It's Peter Parker's death that inspires this kid to step up."

Furthermore, this change was said to be inspired by Community actor Donald Glover's viral efforts to be cast as the new Spider-Man in the upcoming film. Later, when Glover showed up on the show wearing Spider-Man pajamas, he knew he was headed in the right direction.

This isn't just a publicity stunt. The claim is that the move has been made to better reflect America, where all major superheroes do not need to necessarily be white guys, despite what Superman, Batman, Captain America, Thor, Iron Man, Green Lantern and all the rest would have you believe. Luke Cage and Static Shock just aren't cutting it.

What do you make of a new Spider-Man?

Extra Tidbit: I would totally watch an Ultimate Spider-Man movie with Donald Glover.

I don't care if the new spider man is black; as long as they aren't trying to pass him off as Peter Parker who cares. But I'm pretty sure you have to remove Green Lantern from your list. John Stewart, the Green Lantern from the Ultimates Universe was, you know, black.

BRILLIANT

Hey, this sounds great. In fact, while we're at it, let's make him a Blood, Crip or part of MS-13

Wait! Even better! Let's reimagine him again as a rebellious Mexican federale teenager who shoots acid from his wrists to burn rival gang's faces and wraps them in cocoons of web to hang from bridges near the U.S. border and comes back periodically to drink their blood because that's his only means of survival in the harsh conditions South of the Border.

I mean, why not? We've fucked up

Does no one remember when James Rhodes, a black man, became Iron Man for a time? Oh, wait, the people raging over this have likely never read a comic in their lives.

I don't get the big deal really. Comic books characters are always getting reinvented and restarted. I mean, it's not like the original Spider Man has changed. This is simply using Ultimate as an opportunity to take an iconic character and change him a little. As to why they don't create a new character. They have, and they never seem to catch. But taking someone as iconic as Spider man, that's different. Whether or not he will actually catch on as the new Spidey. Well, thats a different story.

Just like the Future Foundation, I find this bewildering and unnecessary. It's a cool idea to have a mixed race kid become a superhero, and updates the original ethos of Spider Man to now. It's just-- couldn't Marvel have given this kid his own totally new superhero brand instead of bumping off a very famous one for him to inherit? The same with Future Foundation-- great costumes, great concepts-- but do they have to be the thing that replaces the Fantastic Four? Why can't we have both? I feel

I feel a bit let down as I was a die hard fan of USM. I think it still had years worth of mileage in it and a few active subplots that were yet to be resolved. Bringing this whole Death of Spiderman storyline in just felt like a very odd fit and a rushed, unworthy conclusion to what has always been an excellent comic.

I must say I've lost a bit of respect for Marvel this year over this. I can't believe how badly Marvel have screwed up the Ultimate line after such a promising first few years.

"The claim is that the move has been made to better reflect America, where all major superheroes do not need to necessarily be white guys"

Then... invent some new fucking superheroes, for Christ's sake. It *is* a publicity stunt and it *is* lazy to take an iconic character and - gasp, the horror! - change their race because "the character's race isn't important" (err... so why change it, then? You can't have it both ways).

The assholes at Marvel are just trying to be PC with this stunt. It will backfire, Bendis has already said that heroes in comics rarely stay dead, so once this shit bombs they will bring Parker back. Give it a year.

Are you retarded? They didn't change the character's race. This is an entirely new character taking up the mantle as Spiderman.

Absolutely ludicrous...

I hate the concept of some comic writer killing an iconic character, and then they want to make a name for themselves by putting forth a crazy change that forces the media to pick it up. I loved Bendis's work on Ultimate Spiderman in the beginning, but I hate that he killed him. Peter Parker is Spiderman!!! I will not read these new books, because it is such a sad concept. I for one can not support this choice. I don't care that he is half black and half hispanic. He could be half asian and

Sellout?

If this Spiderman busts a black or hispanic criminal, will he be considered a sellout to his fellow black and hispanic race? I have the feeling that he will steer clear of those neighborhoods.

This happens every time there's a death/character change. Tons of people who don't even read the comic have a fit. If you don't read it, why whine about it? Bendis's run on Ultimate Spiderman has been incredibly good. The death of Spiderman story was one of the best Spiderman stories I've read. In fact Ultimate Spiderman has been kicking Amazing Spiderman's ass for years in terms of quality. Give it a chance before you condemn it. If you read the book you can tell this isn't a stunt. I admit

I admit the whole Ultimatum thing was a bit insane in terms of killing characters and at first I didn't like it, but it spawned something really interesting.

*SPOILER*

In killing major characters like Wolverine, Cyclops, Magneto, Xavier, and now Spiderman they've actually done something cool. You have a Marvel Universe where the big boys that are in all the books nowadays are dead. New heros are stepping up and filling in the void. You got Jean Grey running the X-Men with Wolverine's son who has the same powers but isn't a killer. It's pretty cool…

I really loved ultimate Spiderman and I read every issue until issue 155 when they brought back the green goblin after he was supposed to be dead from a "death of a goblin" story line. this new kid just decides to become spiderman because hes inspired by peter parkers death? where does he get the spider powers? what I would do is end ultimate spiderman and start ultimate spiderwoman since that character was always making random appearances anyways.

Hello! They've been making comics for 50 years, they ran out of good ideas a long time ago. The only reason they still do it is because it generates millions, it's certainly not to create interesting stories.

why do they feel like he has to be half of two races? why not just fully Black or fully hispanic? seems like they didn't want eigther race to feel left out; whatever, all I know is that we'll never see this be made into a film.

1) The Ultimate Universe sucks. So it doesn't really matter.

2) All that matters about this is the story they tell.... and if it's just the same stupid RACISM IS BAD story over and over, I could see where this was a bad idea.

3) The Ultimate Universe still sucks.

4) This is not the first or last character that gets offed and replaced by an affirmative action legacy.

no.

This is bad. There is no reason to do this other than $$$. The old saying; "There's no such thing as bad PR", is what they are planning on. And I have now seen this "story" on 4 different sites so, sadly this is news. But it is bad news if you ask me. Marvel is a Big Corporation and they act like it. From making Spider-Man multi-ethnic, to screwing past creators like Jack Kirby, it all about the almighty dollar. None for me thanks, I'm driving.

This is utter bullshit, more-so the reasons behind it. I agree with the running theme of if you want a black/hispanic super hero then create one. Leave Spider Man alone. Bendis has left the door open for Parker to come back however, he's probably scared shitless this is going to blow up in his face. For you Ultimate universe bashers, trying reading some of the stuff when it first came out. Some excellent material. Mark Millar and Bendis pushed out alot of great writing for the Ultimate

Not enough.

I'm all for having black, latin, asian, and whatever else kinds of superheroes. In my mind, our world could use some more role models who aren't actors. Maybe it's because these fictional characters embody what's best in us is and that's what makes them great; or it could be the spidey sense, flying armor, and batarangs. If they can make this kid into a believable Spider-man for a child of ANY race to look up to, I'm for it. But I will say I think you need time to make legendary characters like

I've read some, but not too many comics.

What I don't understand is why Marvel and DC seemingly haven't created any original characters in like 50 years. While Spider-Man is great (and I'm not opposed to this change at all), why are the companies not able to create new, interesting characters that reflect the times?

People complain about movies doing the same thing over and over again, but comics are much worse. I've seen Warner Brothers introduce original characters all the time

as I look at the top of joblo i see an ad for Jay-z/Kanye -watch the throne and UFC Ortiz vs Evans. Are you really so moronic to think marvel is "pandering to minorities"? How about pandering to a large segment of their audience... yes, black/brown people buy comic books. Now get your head out of your ass and stop using antiquated terms from the 90's like "poilitically correct".

also you should start reading census data because you are assuming non-whites are minorities... again, you are

You could see it coming...

Marvel has been playing with changing race on their characters for a while now...In the movies - Sam Jackson as Fury, Michael Clark Duncan as Kingpin, 2 Asgardians changed race in Thor...Even in the comics, Wasp is now Asian. I can see the need for them to diversify the races in their Universe, but why not add new characters and develop them instead of tinkering with traditional characters. Either way I'm interested to see how the public reacts.

The link below states that they may make him gay in the future. So basically the 'Hide yo' kids, Hide yo' wife' guy is the new spidey.

not into comics

but I actually would've been interested in seeing The Amazing Spider-Man if they had gone this route as even though it would be the same origin story this time it would actualy be able to be really different, the movie would actually be fresh -- instead of the story we're going to get come next summer.

THIS is a movie I would see, this would be interesting.
