"He started life as a white science geek living with his uncle.
But now to reflect the racial changes in America Spider Man has been given a makeover - as a half black half Latino teen.
Miles Morales has replaced Peter Parker as the face behind the famous webbed mask, Marvel Comics has revealed."

Peter Parker first appeared as the superhero in 1962 - having been bitten by a radioactive spider he found he developed the strength and agility of an arachnid.
He was killed off by the Green Goblin in June in a controversial move by Marvel which left fans aghast.

Morales was inspired to do good after learning of the death and in Ultimate Fallout issue four he dons the mask and gets into his first fight.

Marvel has revealed that he does have a connection to Parker in terms of how he got his powers but he will have different abilities beyond ‘Spider Sense’ and the ability to shoot webs out of his hands.

Parker's Aunt May and Gwen Stacy will also be in the plot to help him on his way to being a superhero.

“When the opportunity arose to create a new Spider-Man, we knew it had to be a character that represents the diversity—in background and experience—of the twenty-first century,” said Axel Alonso, Marvel Editor in Chief.

"The creation of Miles Morales, a teenager with an African-American father and Hispanic mother, has been personal for his creators. Axel Alonso, Marvel’s editor in chief, is of mixed cultures (his father is Mexican, his mother is British), and Bendis has two adopted daughters, a 3½-year-old from Ethiopia and a 4½-month-old African American."

Heimdall become Black in the Thor 2011 Movie ,Nick Fury become Black.
Conan was 6'2,black hair, blue eyes now is 6'7 Mixed Race.
There has been a movie with a Black Beowulf and characters in Robin Hood and King Arthur/Merlin films like Friar Tuck and Guinevere.
Greek/Roman tv shows/Movies characters become Non White in Spartacus Blood and Sand there is a Maori playing a Gaul and in Hercules cartoon and tv show there are Black people and Asians.
A woman with Pakistan heritage wanted to be a Hobbit when Hobbits are based of White English people whether they look Keltic Nordid,Bruenn, Atlantid or Paleo Atlantid, they are still White.
And now Spiderman is mixed race.

That Marvel is now enemy propaganda should come as no surprise. Stan Lee is a Jew, after all. What's sad is they made so much money already on movies and things that were not this way (pre-Thor.) Even if we never give them another penny, they have amassed a huge treasure trove already to use in ramming this excrement down kids' throats. Never give Hollywood a dime, folks, never ever.

Conan the babarian always was black haired and blue eyed I think. Was he a European character?

He's a Cimmerian, so Indo-European.

As envisioned by R.E. Howard, Conan hailed from a mythical country, Cimmeria, which equates geographically with Scotland.

Here's a pic of what Conan, as described by R.E Howard looked like,

As for this new Spiderman, I wonder if his new webshooters will be full of crack?

Conan was suppose to be a proto-Celt. The guy playing him in the new movie is 1/4 Hawaiian and 1/4 black. :thumbdown


The only consolation is that the new Conan movie looks like Syfy channel fare. I hope it fails badly.

Well I guess the dark hair blue eyes combination is common in Scotland.


Conan was 6'2,black hair, blue eyes now is 6'7 Mixed Race.

I find it otherworldly ironic and unusual that he actually got TALLER when he became politically correct.

I just hope people don't start any of those stupid boycott groups like they did with Thor. All that does is give them the free publicity that they are looking for.

I think I'll just screen the Arnold version instead. :thumbup

Luckily I no longer buy marvel comics. But these moves by Americans comics seem to be an attempt to tap in to new markets. You must remember that Marvel was filling for bankruptcy (http://www.businessweek.com/magazine/content/02_18/b3781029.htm) in the 90's. However these recent changes will (hopefully) alienate more and more traditional fans who also have more money to spend. ;) It could be great opportunity for comic book makers who are not doing these kind of things to expand their market share.

Maybe. But Dark Horse has the rights to all of REH characters now and they will not stop making the Picts black in the Kull comics.

Man, did you guys even read the whole article? Spiderman is not played by a black guy, a black tried out for the part. He is played by a white dude.

I'd trade them for Conan in a heart beat though. Let Spiderman be black and gives us a white guy for Conan.

This guy plays him...

He does look off but he certainly isn't half Hispanic and half black.

He is jewish...

But did you read the article yourself? Because it is about the new comic book Spider Man, and not about the movie reboot featuring the current one.

Does he look black enough for you?

Meh, I googled it and got a different link which I thought was the same one. I know they got that new film coming out so I tried to put two and two together. I got it wrong. I do not read modern comics, they suck regardless.


Marvel did this same thing with Nick Fury for their Ultimates line too which is why they have a black Fury doing cameos in the new films. I wish I was wrong about the Conan film too.

I was a prolific reader of Marvel Comics during the 60's and I picked up a batch of recent ones only the other day but, sadly, there appears to be little relation between past and present.

What the Hel is going on at Marvel because Stan Lee was around back then but the company didn't produce anything like all the PC crap it's spewing out today ... or were they just biding their time until conditions were right?

:mad

The only comic I was ever buying with any regularity were Hellboy, The Goon, the Nocturnals, and the occasional interesting looking independent.

I haven't read a Marvel or DC comic since the 80s. And judging by what I'm reading here, I don't think I'll ever be reading anything of theirs again.

I guess they are reaching out to the untapped Afro-Hispanic homo market. :shrug

I hope this decision hurts their bottomline. I doubt many White kids wil spend money on this trash & I don't think the niglets or beaners would want to be seen buying (or even shoplfting) a gay comic book.
