Miles Morales To Headline Bendys Spider-Man
Disney continues their PC take over of Marvel Comics with Miles Morales being the headliner in new Bendys Spider-Man comic that launches in the Fall following Secret Wars.
Apparently, Bendys thinks fans of "color" are not allowed to be Batman or Superman while playing with their friends (seriously, this is what he says), so now they can pretend to be Miles Morales, the Black Puerto Rican Spider-Man from the Ultimate Universe that replaced a murdered Peter Parker, and now finds himself front-and-center following Secret Wars:
“Many kids of color who when they were playing superheroes with their friends, their friends wouldn’t let them be Batman or Superman because they don’t look like those heroes but they could be Spider-Man because anyone could be under that mask. But now it’s true. It’s meant a great deal to a great many people.”
The NY Daily News states that Peter Parker looks to be involved in the new series somehow as it's stated Parker is a mentor to Morales. Bendys also notes the Morales Spider-Man is everybody's Spider-Man.
“Our message has to be it’s not Spider-Man with an asterisk, it’s the real Spider-Man for kids of color, for adults of color and everybody else,” says Bendis of the series which is drawn by artist Sarah Pichelli.
