We all know that Marvel is turning their Ultimate Spidey into a biracial hero, which unlike Glenn Beck and Lou Dobbs I’m pretty cool with. What I’m not cool with is this ridiculous power set that he seems to be developing.
Looking at some previews, it looks like Miles Morales has super-speed, invisibility and…taser hands. Look, I understand, they’re shaking things up and they don’t want him to have exactly the same power set. But you screw with Spidey’s powers, regardless of character, at your peril: remember when Spidey went all were-spider whenever he got pissed, and was able to pull a Doctor Doolittle with spiders? Yeah, they retconned that out for a reason.
Still, the book itself should be interesting. Maybe when it comes out Marvel will finally be releasing comics to Android (HINT HINT).
