Left Unresolved - Is There More Than One Miles Morales in the Marvel Universe?

But as you can see, from Spider-Man #1 by Brian Michael Bendis and Sara Pichelli, Miles and his family and supporting cast has been just merged into the Prime Marvel Earth...

As Brian Michael Bendis explained to CBR, yes, Miles does know that he came from another universe, but the eight month gap after Secret Wars was designed, in this case, to skip over Miles' adjustment period, and just have things back to normal as soon as possible.

So, back to the issue at hand - what does this mean about the Miles Morales of the "616" Marvel Universe? We don't know. Ultimate Reed Richards, the Maker, also made his way to Prime Earth, but since the "616" Reed is not around at the moment, perhaps that's an exception? Heck, note that we never even saw if Peter FOUND the "616' Miles! Maybe "616" Miles is dead? Bendis has not addressed it either way, but I suspect that this is going to just be something that never gets resolved, as Bendis doesn't seem to want to complicate things any more than he has to, which I fully support, honestly. We really don't NEED two Miles Moraleses out there!

EDITED TO ADD SOME CLARIFICATION ABOUT THE STATE OF DUPLICATE PEOPLE:

In the latest issue of Squadron Supreme, the "Supreme Power" Nighthawk met up with the Prime Earth Nighthawk. This also establishes that the current "prime" Earth IS the old "616" Earth, just with some folks from dead worlds merged on to it (and if your world is NOT dead, then you are most likely still living on said world, like Spider-Gwen on her world)...

But thanks for the suggestion, nightsking666! If anyone else has a suggestion for an unresolved comic book plot, just drop me a line at brianc@cbr.com!
