    Miles is looking like a bodybuilder here.

    So Miles now has a middle name . And Ganke now has a Man bun. Saladin Ahmed already putting his stamp on things.
    And a new Ultimate Alliance was announced hope to see him there too

    That middle name is ...something, Miles middle name should have been Davis tbh.

    Also kind of related but it was/is nice to see Bendis so happy about his characters making it on the big screen, first Maria Hill, then Miles Morales, and now Ronin.
    My priority is black female characters; everything else is secondary.

    Davis wouldn't be a middle name, it'd be part of a double barreled surname. And in fact, would likely go at the end of his name, considering Morales is actually Rio's name, not Jefferson's. Usually kids only have mother's maiden name if the father isn't around (one night stand, rape, split up before the birth and didn't maintain contact, anything like that), so Miles being called Morales is actually rather odd.

    Bendis sowed the seeds about the name rationale in the Miles Morales: Ultimate Spider-Man run, but Jason Reynolds took the idea and made it work.

    Having gone down a darker path during his younger days with Aaron, Jefferson credits Rio with helping him turn his life around. When their son was born, Jefferson was determined to prevent him from making the same mistakes that he'd made. He didn't want to burden his kid with the Davis name and so Miles got his mom's last name.

    Plus, as Ganke points out in the novel, his name would then be Miles Davis!

    On an interesting side note, I believe that it was an honest oversight on Bendis' part, but the name "Jefferson Davis" has a historical connotation that makes it an extremely surprising and unfortunate choice for an AA character. Again, it's clearly an innocent slip but still unfortunate.

    Easily fixable. Why not just have him shorten his first name, to Jeff?

    Love that Saladin mentioned that Tombstone will be one of the future rogues that Miles will be dealing with. Because of the Spectacular cartoon, I always liked the idea of Tombstone becoming Miles' "Kingpin-esque" Big Bad of sorts, especially since he doesn't get used much in comics anyway.

    He also mentioned that Miles' relationship status is kind of all there with Barbara. Apparently someone who flirted with Miles is making a return. I'm guessing he was referring to Tomoe there.

    Also this little tidbit:

    His decency. It sounds like something we almost take for granted with superheroes. Miles is a really cool guy. He's popular and dresses nice, but at the same time he's a really kind and selfless person.

    I don't want to say that's a contrast, but we're very used to seeing superheroes who are sort of nerdy and misunderstood, and they find their empathy through that. I think Miles is a different kind of hero, though, in terms of personality. It's a lot of fun to write him.
    I know Saladin mentioned in the past that part of Miles' school life will be him dealing with bullies. I'm starting to think it's not Miles himself who's going to get picked on, but maybe one of friends or some new character. Would put a new spin on that classic Spider-man dynamic.

    (Although pre-Secret Wars Miles was all kinds of awkward).

    So I guess Aaron is back to being a villain again?

    Rhino looks really disheveled in that art there. I wonder if that's intentional.

    I've been wanting to Miles face off against Tombstone for a while. Good synergy since he's also in the movie .

    My first thought was Bombshell and Kamala, actually. Tomoe seemed...interested but it didn't really come across as overt flirting to me.

    Yeah between this and Spiderverse it seems Miles is meant to be more cool and social. Which funnier because in the game and recent cartoon they go for a more nerdy direction.
    Also yay for finally getting Tombstone vs Miles
