The New 'Ultimate Spider-Man' is Biracial

Fellow buddy and reader, Wilson, clued me in on this hot piece of comic info. Since Peter Parker died in the 'Ultimate Spider-Man' comic, a new kid will take his place... And his name is Miles Morales.

And another thing, he's half Black and Hispanic. Here's more:
"It's certainly long overdue," Bendis said in the article. "Even though there's some amazing African-American and minority characters bouncing around in all the superhero universes, it's still crazy lopsided."

Bendis also credited Community actor Donald Glover's Twitter campaign last summer to play the movie version of Spider-Man — and subsequent appearance in the show's second season premiere in Spidey pajamas — as helping him realize he was on the right track.

"He looked fantastic!" Bendis told the newspaper. "I saw him in the costume and thought, 'I would like to read that book.' So I was glad I was writing that book."
This is an interesting turn of events. It seems that many comics are going into a multicultural route. I wonder if we will see more of this.
