With the new PS5 game featuring the character as well as the second Into the Spider-Verse movie in the works, many fans still are yet to know the force of nature that is Miles Morales. There are some things about Marvel’s Newest Wall Crawler that make him worthy of the mantle of the Spider.

Do not worry. Peter Parker is not dead. Miles Morales is actually the Spider-Man of the Ultimates Universe, a parallel universe Earth.
His Uncle is a Super Villain
He later steals technology and becomes the Iron Spider, a major super villain in the Ultimates Universe.
New Powers Not Even Peter Parker Possesses
Apart from his regular Spider-Man powers, Miles possesses powers unique to him. Peter Parker does not have the power to use a Venom Sting, an attack powerful enough to cut through steel.
His Mother Was Killed During a Cop Shootout

His First Ever Villain
Batman has the Joker. Superman has Lex Luthor. Spider-Man as the Green Goblin. Miles Morales has….. the Kangaroo.
Bonded With the Carnage Symbiote
Miles came dangerously close to becoming a cold blooded mass murderer. Luckily the heroes of Marvel Comics were able to stop him before he does something rash.

There Are Two Of Them
This twisted version of Miles Morales was ready to do all it takes to bring back the love of her life from the dead. When he learned of Miles’ existence in the Ultimates Universe, Mile of the mainstream Marvel Universe left a trail of blood and chaos in search of his long lost love.
