Miles Morales is a teenage superhero from another dimension. He was bitten by a genetically-altered spider, giving him spider-like abilities. He took over the mantle of Spider-Man after the death of his world's Peter Parker.

As of Season 4, when currently living in the original universe where that world's Spider-Man is still alive, Miles took the name Kid Arachnid, without confusing his alter-ego with the original Spider-Man.



Miles Morales exists in an alternate reality in which Peter Parker died in battle. He received his powers just before the incident and felt guilty ever since for not helping. The Goblin arrives in his dimension on a quest to acquire Spider-Man DNA. He is however saved by Spider-Man (Peter Parker) from another dimension. Miles is shocked believing him to be a ghost until realizing its an alternate Spiderman and deduces Goblin's goal, something Spiderman compliments him on figuring out. Miles later shows him the grave of his world's version of Peter Parker and relates on his shock on actually being there.

The two team up to battle the Goblin and Morales dimension Green Goblin, who is a lot more powerful, with wings and pyrokinetic powers. However, the Goblin is able to gain the DNA sample and returns to his dimension. [1]

Miles Morales later travel to Ultimate Spider-Man Universe with the other Web-Warriors to battle the "Spider-Goblin". After defeating the villain and saving the city, Miles agrees with the other Spidermen on Ultimate is a worthy hero before going back to his world.

Miles from Home

Miles was seen battling the Ultimate Goblin in his version of New York, before the villain disappeared. Miles was later dragged out of his own dimension and into the main Spider Man's dimension, to help Spider-Man stop Doc Ock and Baron Mordo, as well as sending the Ultimate Goblin back to the ultimate universe. However they failed in doing so, with the Ultimate Goblin ending up as part of the Sinister Six, and Miles stuck in Peter's world, thanks to the Siege Perilous' rift closing.

Return to Spiderverse

During Return to the Spider-Verse: Part 4, he and Spiderman return to Miles' dimension as they track the shard of the perilous. Miles is excited to return home but is surprised as they find Spider-Gwen has taken over in his stead.

At the police department, he and the others are attacked by Wolf Spider who took Miles' mother Rio Morales captive in exchange for the shards. However, they are able to defeat him while also fixing the Siege Perilous but the villain escapes. Very soon, the group relax at Miles' home and he prepares to tell Peter goodbye to stay with his mother but Wolf Spider attacks them. Confused Miles questioned the villain on this, as Wolf reveals there was a Miles in his dimension before he killed him and soon reveals his identity as alternate and evil version of Peter Parker who seeks to conquer all the other universes with Siege Perilous. After Wolf left a trail of destruction, they followed him and found him at a web of other Spidermen from different worlds as he reveals his intentions of draining their life forces.

At the end, Spiderman readies to return home and bids Miles farewell. However, Miles had saw that Gwen has done good in protecting the city while he and his mother both had agreed to simply take her with him so they'll be together. With that, all three cross over.

Background Information

  • Spider-Man (Miles Morales) is voiced by Donald Glover. In May 2010, a fan suggested Glover for the role of Peter Parker in the then-upcoming The Amazing Spider-Man 2012 film, encouraging his supporters to retweet the hashtag "#donald4spiderman". The campaign, originally started to see how far social networking could carry a message, quickly gained a large following. The call for Glover to be allowed to audition for the role was supported by Spider-Man creator Stan Lee. Comics writer Brian Michael Bendis, who announced an African-American version of Spider-Man a year later, said he had conceived of the character before Glover's campaign went viral. Bendis gave credit to Glover for influencing the new hero's looks; on seeing him dressed as Spider-Man on Community (a nod to the campaign), Bendis said, "I saw him in the costume and thought, 'I would like to read that book.'"
  • Peter Parker meeting Miles Morales and teaming up together to save their universes can be an adaptation of the Spider-Men storyline except Goblin takes the role of Mysterio.
  • The Spider-Men storyline in which Peter meets Miles was originally written by Ultimate Spider-Man writer Brian Michael Bendis. However, Bendis didn't write The Spider-Verse: Part 3 episode in which Peter meets Miles on the show.
