After Spider Verses, Miles Morales stars in a new Spider-Man comic run

Spider-Man: Into Spider-Vers is finally in cinemas – and soon afterwards, Miles Morale's new ongoing series has come across this week.

Polygon: Miles Morales has gained a significant popularity of popularity for a character that is so innovative for Spider-Man mythos. What do you think has put him in that place? What makes him convincing?

Saladin Ahmed : I think it’s because he bridges the old and the new in a really special way. I think there are many ways in which the Miles story touches all types of classic super hero and classic spider man and classic marvel beats and restores all sorts of familiar elements in a story that people have locked on and loved and interpreted for decades. But he does it in a way that is a lot about the 21st century and how America looks like now. He has just another name, another face, and is from Brooklyn rather than Queens and may be a little hipper, you know, more of a 21st century teen than Peter. And so I think he is a perfect figure to bridge that gap.

Where do we get Miles in Miles Morales: Spider-Man ?

When we will issue one, we are in a place that is very friendly to new readers, but also familiar to people who have followed him for a while. We are at the beginning of a new school year at the Brooklyn Vision Academy for Miles, and it’s kind of a return to their roots like a high school superhero.

This first bow, and really the first little moment in the series, will not be about big cosmic events. Miles come just outside a multidimensional Spider Verse event – in Spider-Geddon, in the series. And he will go very much in the opposite direction in his own series, very local. It will be about him who starts a new school year and has to face challenges like both Spider-Man and Miles, as a teenager in high school, and just trying to live life. But of course, because he is a superhero, life does not leave him alone.

You have previously said that he is taking a new artistic company in school.

Yes, he’s in creative writing class. He has the first period [laughs] and he keeps a magazine as part of his class and it starts to spark something in him. And then we’ll see it play a bit. And it’s also his funny thing to put all his secrets in a notebook, as you know … [slyly] Hmm, it could pay down the line.

Yes, I guess it’s a little tricky when You have a secret life as a super hero.

There are plans there …

You were a novelist before becoming a comic bookwriter, is that where you would like to enter the book?

Sort but not really. You know, Marvel Universe does not have a superhero writer.

I mean, there is Jessica Jones, but she’s more of a journalist [in the pages of the series Pulse]. We have had photographers, we have had lawyers. But I think it’s interesting – I’ve learned creative writing for young people, so surely I’ve learned some of my experiences there – but I think it’s a natural fit for Miles.

I mean, [correcting himself] Kamala has – I should not deny the fact that Kamala is writing fanfiction. But Miles will specifically work on poetry in this class. So that’s something from me, but I also think it’s a useful plot device and an interesting way to get its feelings on the page. I think Miles is probably a child who does not necessarily spend a lot of time sitting and thinking about his feelings the same way Peter does. And that’s what forces him to do it.

Is there anything from Miles background that you would drive more in the foreground of your series?

Yes, definitely! Again, I really want to dig in Miles as a high school student, so we will have a lot of fun with it. But that’s also the issue of Miles family. We’ve seen a lot about his dad, but I think his mom, Rio, will be a pretty important figure – like his uncle Aaron, the badger Iron Spider will come back on a pretty big road.

I’m only [revisiting] all aspects of his society, school, family, the people who live in his neighborhood. I want to see everything about it at the same time, but still tell about fun, punchful superhero stories.

Have you seen Spider-Man: Into Spider-Verse yet?

Although there is very much inside here at Marvel, I deliberately avoid a chance to get a glimpse of a script or movie because I wanted to put these first releases of comedy to bed as their own thing and get them in. And even I am very happy to see it with my children and kind of wanted to make it fresh with them. So we go as usual civilians on opening night, Thursday. I have tried to avoid spoilers. It’s hard when you write Miles Morales, but I’ve managed to avoid most of the spoilers. All I hear is very enthusiastic about people I trust and I’m just a nerd.
