The New Biracial Spiderman

In a hat-tip to what sociologists are deeming “the new face of America” (which will probably not make the racists of the Tea Party very happy…but who cares, really), LatinTRENDS (via The Huffington Post) tells us the story of the “new” Spiderman…Miles Morales, the half-black, half-Hispanic Spiderman who dons the infamous Spidey Suit after the death of Peter Parker at the hands of the Green Goblin. Miles Morales is a featured character in the “Marvel Ultimates” comic book series, which is separate from the bigger Marvel universe (wherein Peter Parker is alive & well). Morales will make his debut in “Ultimate Fallout” Issue No. 4, which is set to hit the comic shops today.
