New Ultimate Spider-Man is half-black and gay

In the latest edition of Marvel’s Ultimate Fallout series Spider-Man pulls back his masks and shows his face for the first time. The half-black, half-white Miles Morales has replaced Peter Parker and will reveal to readers that he is gay.

Peter Parker became Spidey back in 1962, but in the Ultimate series, was killed off in June by the Green Goblin.

Morales was inspired to do good after learning of the death and in Ultimate Fallout issue #4 he dons the mask and gets into his first fight.

Marvel has confirmed some differences in his abilities (no web shooters, the webs come out of his hands) but details are sketchy.

“The theme is the same: With great power comes great responsibility,” Spider Man writer Brian Michael Bendis told USA Today.

Same theme, same character, different person under the mask.

Critics will certainly point out the Obama inspired half-black hero who is gay — a clear move to be politically correct, but the glass ceiling and normalize the gay lifestyle.
