Miles Morales is everything I wanted after a long hiatus of not-reading and after watching Into the Spider-Verse. I feel at times he's a bit TOO funny with the zingers and saying stuff like a 20 year-old and not a 13 year-old (his quips vs. Peter's quips seem the exact same) but overall a great new character and "spin" on Spider-Man

The Ultimatum thing really sucked and truly messed up characters (even going beyond death) but at least Spidey got through only singed.

This new chapter in the life of the teenaged Web-Slinger picks up in the aftermath of Ultimatum and completely redefines the status quo of Spider-Man for the next generation -- complete with a new supporting cast, new villains, and maybe even a new Spider-Man!
