The black Spider-Man

PA-11329224.jpg

While we impatiently wait for next summer's cinematic reboot, it appears as if Marvel are also hoping to give the webbed hero a fresh spin.

After Peter Parker was killed by the Green Goblin (something we all excitedly dreamt about after watching Spider-Man 3), the red and blue suit looked as if it has been retired.

But Marvel Comics have just announced that the new Spider-Man is on the way and he's called Miles Morales. To reflect "the real world in all its diversity", according to editor Axel Alonso, he's half-black and half-hispanic.

The themes will be the same although Morales is younger than Parker.

It's the latest in a rush of new diverse comic book characters, including a lesbian Batwoman and a black Aqualad.
