Writer Saladin Ahmed and artist Javier Garron are chronicling the next adventures of Miles Morales in the appropriately titled Miles Morales: Spider-Man, and today Ahmed teased what fans can expect when the comic launches in December during the Marvel Comics: Spider-Man Panel at New York Comic Con.
One of the big plot points for the series will see the young Spider-Man get in over his head, resulting in Miles doing something he really shouldn't.
“Miles is back in school, back in Brooklyn,” Ahmed said. “He’s at the start of a new school year as the series starts. And he’s keeping a journal that he’s possibly ill-advisingly keeping more secrets in that he should. Without giving too much away, I’m a fan of the villain-hero team-up, so maybe everything isn’t what it seems between him and the Rhino.” He also noted that Miles’ uncle Aaron Davis will be “back in a big way.”
Miles' previous title, Spider-Man, ended with his Uncle Aaron donning the Iron Spider suit and joining with a new iteration of the Sinister Six to battle Miles and his Champions teammates. Ahmed will keep Uncle Aaron a fixture in Miles' life going forward, but the revelation that Miles is keeping a journal full of superhero secrets can only lead to bad news.
Miles Morales: Spider-Man #1 by Saladin Ahmed and Javier Garron goes on sale in December from Marvel Comics.
