Miles Morales

Spider-Man's History

After Norman Osborn was arrested by S.H.I.E.L.D and publicly revealed as the Green Goblin, and nearly two months before Peter Parker's death, a thief broke into the abandoned Osborn Industries. Unbeknownst to the thief, a spider genetically enhanced with the Oz Formula crawled into his bag.

Miles Morales, a young kid from Brooklyn visited his uncle Aaron Davis (which was against his parents' wishes, due to his uncle's criminal past) after being awarded the final spot in a charter school lottery. At his uncle's apartment Miles was bitten by the Oz-enhanced spider, which emerged from Aaron's bag, and Miles discovered he received superhuman abilities like camouflage, increased agility, as well as some sort of stun blast, and upon revealing his newly found powers to his best friend, Ganke Lee, both concluded he had power similar to Spider-Man's, including wall-crawling.[26][27] But Miles reacted negatively, as he just wanted to be normal, and decided to leave heroism to the actual Spider-Man.

Months later, Spider-Man died saving his family from Osborn. Miles arrived late to the scene. Struck with grief at not helping Peter Parker before his demise, Miles decided to follow Parker's philosophy -- with great power comes great responsibility -- and so continue Peter's legacy.[28]

The New Spider-Man

During his first night as Spider-Man, Miles faced Kangaroo while wearing a Spider-Man Halloween costume.[29] Miles' next patrol was cut short when he was attacked by Spider-Woman who demanded to know who he was.[30][31] After accidentally knocking himself out, Miles was held captive in a cell at the Triskelion, S.H.I.E.L.D.'s headquarters. There, he was interrogated by Nick Fury, and his origin revealed to them.

Electro woke up in the Triskelion medical ward from a coma, caused during Parker's fight against Norman Osborn, and battled the Ultimates. Miles participation was crucial for the heroes victory, and he was rewarded with Spider-Woman's approval for Miles to officially be the new Spider-Man.[32]

Miles in his new costume stops a mugging, albeit very sloppily. The police arrive but Miles escapes, not before Betty Brant captures video footage of him on her phone which she brings to the Daily Bugle and presents to J. Jonah Jameson. The story of a new Spider-Man in New York makes the headlines. Miles, at his parents' house, has a talk with his mother about the recent news he learned about the criminal past of his father and Uncle Aaron. Ganke comes over and presents Miles with the DVD of the Spider-Man Movie that was released several months ago, featuring actual footage of Peter Parker fighting with Dr. Octopus. Ganke suggests that he study Peter's moves so he can become a better crime fighter like Peter was.[33]

While at the dinner table, the Morales family discussed the all-new Spider-Man which resulted in Miles' parents being on different sides -- Miles' father being against Spider-Man and his mother being for Spider-Man (thinking it cool). Miles' father is not so happy with it because of the fact that a mutant used his powers to flood the whole city of New York causing millions of people to die, but Miles' mother reminds Miles' father that thanks to a young boy in a Spider-Man costume, he saved countless lives and did whatever he could to save the city and also was honored after he died.

Omega Red

Later on, Miles hopped around rooftops practicing his new powers. Miles decides to test his wall-crawling abilities on a tall building to see how far he can climb but soon remembers that he has a sort of fear of heights. Then Miles tries to find a way into the building so he can get downstairs, and finds himself on the hotel floor of Principal Suitress who faints in shock at seeing the new Spider-Man. Miles then hears an explosion occur far off in the distance, he decides to jump over to the area to see what is going on since he has no web-shooters yet, he cannot swing towards the danger. As Miles arrives in the area, he starts to feel a buzzing in his head which is his Spider-Sense, and he starts to understand its purpose a little bit more, as he dodges a flying car that was heading right for him. He comes face to face with Omega Red, who is surprised and angered to see another Spider-Man. Miles and Omega Red fight, with Miles making fun of Omega Red's name. To quickly end the battle, Miles uses his Venom Blast which has a good effect on Omega Red, putting a stop to the villain. The scene then cuts to Miles and Ganke talking about Miles fight against Omega Red and how awesome and cool the fight was. But Miles believes that in order to be prepared for much more dangerous and lethal villains he must train harder, and Ganke is about to propose an idea until Miles' Uncle Aaron appears.[34]

The Prowler

Miles was shocked when his Uncle Aaron confronted him with the revelation that he knew Miles was the new Spider-Man. When Aaron told Miles he wanted them to work together but Miles refused, so Aaron threatened to tell Miles' father about his secret. Miles was confused as to what to do with the whole situation.

Together they went to fight the Scorpion. After defeating Scorpion, Miles handed him to the police which resulted in him almost being arrested. When Miles refused to help his uncle again, Aaron unveiled his latest toy, a Vulture suit.[35] Realizing his uncle intended to use him as his personal enforcer, Miles realized it was time to face Aaron.[12] Miles then battles the Ringer.[36] The two fought a catastrophic battle in which Aaron utilized Vibro-Shock Gauntlets, one of them was damaged in battled.[37] The Vibro-Shock Gauntlets later caused it to short-circuit and explode, killing him.[38]

Divided We Fall, United We Stand

Miles was secretly approached by Gwen Stacy and Aunt May, who tried to give him Peter Parker's original web shooters to help him, Captain America followed them and tried to make Miles abandon the mantle of Spider-Man.[39] After Miles helped Captain America to defeat the R.H.I.N.O., he agreed to let him be Spider-Man, but with the need of better training.[40] In order to improve, Miles joined the Ultimates.[41] In the wake of a civil war, in which Captain America was elected president to help unite the splintered factions of the United States of America.[42] The Daily Bugle is on the hunt to find out everything they can about the new Spider-Man.[43]

Miles was present during the battle for Wyoming and Project Pegasus against the revolutionary terrorists of Hydra,[44] in which Spider-Woman was forced to team-up with him. In the end, the heroes were victors.[45]

But during the battle, Miles managed to board one of the War Machine androids hovering in the skies and accidentally struck him right into Giant-Woman, and was abandoned in a wasteland away from the battle.[46] He began walking until he encountered Giant-Woman, and had to battle her as she was still under the mind-control of Modi, the leader of the revolution and son of Thor.[47] After she was knocked unconscious, a hummer with Spider-Woman searching for Miles arrived the scene, who helped him to return home.[48]

Spider-Men

In an unusual turn of events, Miles accidentally encountered the Spider-Man of an alternate universe. Because Peter Parker was dead in his world and there was confusion between the two, they began to fight.[49] Peter unmasked Miles and demanded answers. However, Miles managed to knock out Peter using his venom strike. Unsure what to do with him, Miles brought Peter to S.H.I.E.L.D. to sort things out. At the Triskelion, Fury learned that this Peter Parker was from another world entirely. Suspecting there might be trouble in a dimensional incursion, he wanted to have Miles fill Peter in on what happened to that world's Peter Parker.[14]

However, the conversation was cut short when Mysterio appeared to attack both Spider-Men by shooting their helicopter ride out of the sky with a RPG. Miles and Peter battled against Mysterio, who conjured up illusions of their greatest rogues in order to subdue them. Mysterio managed to escape the battle, leaving the two Spider-Men to come up with another plan of attack. Miles was present when Peter reunited with the Aunt May and Gwen Stacy counterparts of his universe, touched by the tender moment between them.[50]

Miles and Peter were soon called away by Nick Fury to fight Mysterio again. Although they expected Mysterio to be defeated, the illusionist quickly resorted to a back-up plan: using the heroes' greatest fears against them.[51] Miles' particular fear was the sight of his Uncle Aaron standing over his dead parents, having murdered them both. However, the heroes managed to overcome Mysterio's illusions and defeat him. While Mysterio was kept within the S.H.I.E.L.D. custody of Miles' universe, Peter spoke to him about his role as the new Spider-Man, saying that he was genuinely satisfied with it.[52]

Venom War

During the civil war, Miles's father, Jefferson, fought Hydra soldiers, which caught the attention of the press and tried to interview him. Jefferson was later attacked by the Venom, who days later followed Betty Brant's investigation to incorrectly suspect Jefferson was the new Spider-Man. Miles, as Spider-Man, managed to rescue his father, as the creature later escaped.[53]

After the battle with Venom, Miles began to feel like it was his fault that Venom attacked his father. Ganke managed to convince him that they can stop Venom before it happens again but were unable to think how, until Mary Jane and Gwen showed up.

After a long discussion about Venom, Maria Hill appeared revealing she knew the truth about Miles and told him he had to stop the symbiote before someone else got hurt. Mary Jane and Gwen then forced her to leave after the discussion.[54]

Miles went outside to confront Maria but was stopped when an officer received word that Venom was attacking the hospital Miles' parents were at. Miles then left for the hospital to confront Venom. Miles arrived and began to fight Venom by utilizing his venom blast. Venom managed to gain the upper hand and grabs Miles, but he was saved after his mom started shooting Venom with a gun. Miles told her to escape, but she refused.

Miles then got grabbed by Venom again and was nearly consumed when Rio revealed that Miles was her son. Venom proceeded to consume her as well until Miles used his venom blast on the inside of Venom, causing it to be removed from its host. The police showed up and shot Venom's host and the remains of the symbiote. Miles moved his mother to safety, but soon found out she had been caught in the crossfire and was dying. He began to scream for help but is stopped by Rio, who told him she was proud and to never tell his dad the truth, before dying. Miles later woke up to find himself at Ganke's house. Miles run into the room he was and proceeded to rip up his costume screaming "No More!" repeatedly.[55]

Spider-Man No More

A year passed since his mother's death, and Ganke, nor Jessica Drew were able to convince Miles to assume the identity of Spider-Man again, who also had a girlfriend named Kate Bishop.[56] After two of Roxxon's subjects escaped and were seen battling Bombshell, Miles was finally convinced by Jessica Drew, who told him her origin as a clone of Peter Parker created by Roxxon, to return to be Spider-Man and stop Roxxon once and for all.[57]

Cataclysm

Due to Earth-61112's Wolverine's abuse of the time-space continuum broke the fabric of reality, causing a "multiversal chaos", where numerous beings from other realities were transported to other universes through the tears of reality. One of the beings was Galactus of Earth-616. Miles was present when said being arrived to Earth and destroyed New Jersey.[58] Miles helped save civilians and was recruited by the Ultimates when they tried to plan what to do.

Iron Man discovered the entity came from the same universe Peter Parker temporarily came from months ago, Earth-616. The Ultimates decided to use a portal recovered from Mysterio to go there and ask for help to their Reed Richards, as suggested by Beck. Before they could decide who would go, Reed Richards appeared and recommended to put their differences aside and let him go, as he could access to the other Richards' files in case he wasn't available to help them at the moment.[59] The Ultimates let Richards go, with the condition of being accompanied by Miles Morales. Both heroes managed to arrive to Earth-616, extract the information needed and return. He also revealed his double life to his father, who believed Miles was responsible for the death of Aaron and Rio and rejected him.[60]

In the wake of the near-destruction of the Earth at the hands of Galactus, Tony Stark decided to disband the Ultimates. However, Spider-Woman decided to continue the legacy of the deceased Captain America in the form of a team of young heroes, the Young Ultimates, of which Spider-Man formed part.[61]

Spider-Verse

Before the return of his world's Spider-Man, Miles and Jessica Drew (Black Widow III) were attacked by a member of the Inheritors, Verna, along with her hounds while visiting Rio Morales grave. They were saved by Superior Spider-Man and his army and Miles, believing he was Earth-616's Peter Parker (actually a time displaced Otto Octavius in Peter Parker body), joined him along with Jess.[62]

Encounter With An Old Hero

After a chat with Mary Jane, Miles returned to his apartment, he was surprised to see a stranger in his room. Before he could put his mask back on, the stranger revealed himself to be Peter Parker, alive and well, to Miles' shock.[63] Miles tried to interrogate Peter, who continuously avoided Miles' question on how was he alive. Ultimately, Peter decided to knock down Miles, steal his web-shooters and leave. Miles came to the conclusion that Peter was actually a clone, and decided to tell Ganke about it. As they were discussing the topic, Kate Bishop arrived,[64] and Miles decided to reveal to her he was Spider-Man, making her run away.

After discovering Norman Osborn was alive, Miles got to May Parker's old house, where he was soon confronted by the villain.[65] Peter Parker, as Spider-Man, appeared and helped Miles fight the Green Goblin, who was finally defeated with Miles' Venom Blast. The two Spider-Men were soon surrounded by the police,[66] but managed to separate and escape. Maria Hill helped Miles, and took him to Mary Jane's house, where they found Peter Parker, exactly like Miles suspected.[67] Peter decided to tell Miles the story of his return until the Green Goblin returned to fight them.[68]

Miles took the upper hand in the fight since his Venom Blast had a stronger effect on Osborn. During the fight, Osborn claimed to be Miles' true father. Peter later jumped in and helped him put the Goblin down before they left to the warehouse where he first met Aunt May and Gwen. Peter returned the web-shooters and gave Miles his blessing before he returned to his dorm. He was later woken by Ganke to see that his father had returned.[69]

Captured by Hydra

Unbeknownst to Miles, the parents of his girlfriend Katie Bishop, Derek and Eleanor Bishop, were members of Hydra. Katie didn't know this as well until her parents revealed their secret to her as she went to bed. As an act of loyalty, she, in turn, revealed Miles' identity as Spider-Man to them.[69] Sometime later, Miles visited Katie's house where he was drugged by Derek who revealed his membership in Hydra to Miles.[70] Miles, along with a captured Black Widow (Jessica Drew), was then taken to a secret Hydra lab in a warehouse in Staten Island for experimentation under the charge of Doctor Doom.[71]

Then as Doctor Doom was zapping Miles with microscopic lasers to obtain tissue samples, Miles releases a powerful burst of energy and destroyed his prison and much of the laboratory. Everyone is stunned by Miles' new display of power, in which a scientist hypothesizes that the physical stress brought on Miles is maybe the cause. Miles collapses from being drained from his new power. Doom orders the Spider-Man Twins to take Miles to a cell while he sees to Jessica that she will be dissected. At the very mention of this, Miles regains his strength and knocks down the Spider-Man Twins and a pair of Doombots. Derek quickly puts his gun to Jessica's head and demands Miles to stand down, but Jessica begins to open her eyes. Eventually, Miles' and Jessica's fellow Young Ultimates, his friend Judge, and the NYPD arrived and stormed the warehouse to rescue him. What they found, however, was Miles single-handedly subduing Doom with a single punch amid the many indisposed Hydra soldiers and Spider-Man Twins. Derek Bishop was webbed to the wall by Jessica. Though Katie felt guilty for selling Miles out, he broke up with her anyway. As everyone left the warehouse, they looked up to the sky, which suddenly turned red, to see another Earth, the one from another universe, Earth-616, looming above.[72]

Secret Wars

Miles' world and the other were being affected by a phenomena known as incursions, during which the planets Earth of two different realities embark on a collision course that threatened the two universes. As the two forces of each world fought for survival, hoping to destroy the other's planet, Miles investigated the opening of the Children of Tomorrow's Dome in Manhattan,[73] and ended up infiltrating a vessel built by the Maker and the Cabal to survive the end of times.[74]

As the two universes collided and were destroyed, the Multiverse ended. The Cabal's life raft survived into what remained, Battleworld, a patchwork planet composed of the remnants of several universes, ruled by the omnipotent God Emperor Doom. The raft was ultimately found eight years later in a domain known as Utopolis. When it was opened, its occupants awoke from being in suspended animation.[75] Spider-Man remained behind in order not to give away his presence, and he was found by Sheriff Strange when he investigated the supposedly empty vessel. After discovering Miles' non-threatening intentions, Strange brought him to his Isle of Agamotto, a place of remembrance for the lost universes. There, Strange showed him another similar raft that he had found years earlier but didn't dare to open it until now. Once the vessel was unlocked, from it emerged the survivors of Earth-616, the other universe that had collided with Miles', including Peter Parker.[74]

After God Emperor Doom learned of the survivors, Sheriff Strange had them teleported away with magic to keep them safe, scattering them throughout Battleworld.[76] Miles ended up in the Kingdom of Manhattan, a domain where the remnants of a universe similar to Miles' and another similar to Earth-616 had been recreated but subsequently merged into Earth-61610.[77][78] Miles managed to convince its inhabitants, who didn't remember the world previous to Battleworld, to rebel against their ruler.[79]

Before Castle Doom was assaulted by the enemies of the emperor, Miles and Peter were recruited by the Maker and Mister Fantastic to sneak into the palace and investigate Doom's source of power. They came across the Molecule Man hidden in a secret chamber beneath Doomstadt. When they encountered him, he asked the arachnid heroes if they had brought anything to eat, Miles luckily had a hamburger in his pocket from before the end of the world, and gave it to Owen.[80] As they were leaving the chamber after learning that Molecule Man himself was Doom's source of power, Owen claimed that he was in debt with Miles.[81]

During the ensuing attack at Castle Doom, the God Emperor was confronted by Mister Fantastic, and the Molecule Man ultimately chose to give Reed the power that was Doom's, leading to the destruction of Battleworld in the process.[81] As everything went white, Miles woke up in the reformed Earth-616 instead of his home reality, but as if he had lived his entire life there, together with his father, his returned mother, and even his friends.[79] As an act of thanksgiving, the Molecule Man had made all of that possible.[81]

Miles eventually grew accustomed to living in a different reality, mainly due to his personal life having remained virtually the same. He still attended the Brooklyn Visions Academy together with Ganke and lived together with his parents. Of the two of them, only Jefferson knew about Miles' super-heroic endeavors.[82] Miles received assistance in learning how to be a hero from both the native Peter Parker of the Marvel Universe,[2] and the Avengers, a team Miles became part of.[83] Miles became particularly close to his fellow teenage Avengers, Nova and Ms. Marvel.[84]

The Prime Universe

Civil War II

With the emergence of an Inhuman named Ulysses Cain who possessed the ability to profile the future, Miles sided with the stand of his mentor in the Avengers, Iron Man, that using Ulysses' visions to prevent incidents before they happened could be catastrophic, which opposed Captain Marvel's view on the matter.[85] After an attempt at acting on one of Ulysses' visions resulted in the death of Bruce Banner, Miles' views were consolidated.[84] Miles, Nova and Ms. Marvel actively supported Iron Man's side, and subsequently assisted him in assaulting the Triskelion to confront Captain Marvel.[86]

Miles was dragged to the eye of the hurricane after Ulysses prophesied him killing Captain America on the steps of the destroyed United States Capitol Building.[87] Motivated by his own self-doubt and his fear that his repressed anger issues could make him a bad person, Miles traveled to Washington, D.C. to test whether he was destined to become evil.[88] After Captain America joined Miles in his attempt at testing fate, Captain Marvel approached the young hero and gave him the choice to surrender.[89] When Miles refused and Carol reacted negatively,[88] Iron Man intervened, and encased Miles in a force field to keep him out of Danvers' reach. Iron Man and Captain Marvel proceeded to fight despite Miles' pleas. When a group of heroes arrived to the scene, Miles tried to stop the battle, but Carol had dealt Tony a fatal blow. Miles managed to catch Tony mid-air and cradle Stark's comatose body.[90]

Post-Civil War II

In light of the civil war, Miles, Sam, and Kamala became disillusioned by the adult heroes. They split from the Avengers to form a new team called the Champions. They were joined by the new Hulk Amadeus Cho, Viv Vision,[91] and the time-displaced young Cyclops.[92] Not long afterward, Miles was recruited by S.H.I.E.L.D. into helping them find Jefferson. Miles' dad had joined the organization as an agent as a means to ensure Miles' safety, and had become lost in an entirely different universe during a mission.[93] In the process of this universe-hopping journey, Miles became acquainted with that world's Gwen Stacy, aka Spider-Woman. They developed romantic feelings for each other, but decided to remain as friends for the time being.[94] During Miles and Jefferson's absence due to the interdimensional adventure, Rio found out suspicious items in their belongings, forcing them to admit that they were Spider-Man and a S.H.I.E.L.D. agent, respectively.[95] She eventually came to terms with Miles' secret.[96]

Secret Empire

The United States of America soon fell into the hands of Hydra due to the machinations of Captain America, who turned out to be an evil doppelganger that had supplanted the real Steve Rogers. Spider-Man and the Champions formed part of the Underground, a small resistance against the new regime.[97] When Black Widow decided to go on her own and assassinate Captain America herself, Spider-Man decided to join her efforts as a means of confronting his destiny. The Champions backed him up, as well as a group of other young heroes from the Underground, Ironheart, Falcon and Wasp.[98]

When the time came to strike against Captain America, Black Widow tried to detain Miles, revealing that one of her reasons for taking on Captain America was to prevent Miles from becoming a killer like her. When Miles confronted Captain America, Black Widow tried to interrupt the fight and was seemingly killed. In a fit of rage, Spider-Man beat up Captain America, but Wasp convinced him to spare him in order to follow Black Widow's wishes that he didn't murder. Spider-Man and the Champions were subsequently captured,[99] but broke free during to take part of the final stand against Hydra, after which America's heroes emerged victorious.[100]

Sinister Six Reborn and Go Down Swinging

When Aaron Davis returned as the Iron Spider and formed the new Sinister Six, with Bombshell, Electro, Hobgoblin, Sandman and Spot, they tried to take a S.H.I.E.L.D. Helicarrier[101] and sell it, but Miles intervened, only to be pushed aside with a warning.[102] He then called the Champions for help in battling the Sinister Six (minus Hobgoblin) and Lucia von Bardas, who had just arrived in order to buy the Helicarrier. The heroes are victorious, however, Miles was left injured.[103] At the hospital, Miles was healed from his injuries, however, he was suffering from mysterious infection and was forced to rest in bed for some days. In the ensuing days, his friends and family came to visit him, including Aaron who promised that he would leave his criminal life behind.[104]

After Norman Osborn bonded himself to the Carnage symbiote becoming the Red Goblin, he heavily injured Peter, making Miles along with Silk to try to fight him, however, Red Goblin made quick work of them and left them with intense damage. Then Flash Thompson as Anti-Venom arrived to fight Norman, but was forced to keep the fallen heroes from dying, while Red Goblin injured Flash. After Flash took them to the hospital, he used his symbiote to remove the symbiote pieces left in their bodies from Norman, who intended to use them to kill Peter's loved ones.[105]

Hearing reports of a symbiote-dragon rampaging through Manhattan, Miles investigated and came across Eddie Brock, who had reclaimed the Venom symbiote. Mistaking him for the Venom that had once killed his mother, Miles attacked and sent the Venom symbiote into a berserk rage. Using his Venom Strike to return Venom to his senses, the two agreed to a truce to stop the dragon. Thrown down the dragon's throat by Venom, Miles unleashed a max-power Venom Strike to disable it, but was incapacitated when Knull - the ancient dark god that had created the symbiotes - manifested.[106] Captured by Knull and flown almost completely into space, Miles grabbed Venom and escaped - being shocked when Venom suddenly sprouted wings and flew them to safety.[107]

Spider-Geddon

When fighting the Vulturions, Miles is approached by Spider-Gwen and the Spider-Army who inform him that the Inheritors are trying to escape via clone bodies created by the Superior Octopus. They try to reason with Otto, but it was too late as the Inheritors were successful in escaping.[108] After the explosion of Superior Octopus' facility, Miles tries to help Peter in battling Morlun, but Peter reassured Miles that he can fight Morlun on his own and told Miles that he should lead the Spider-Army.[109] After the Spider-Army was split due to Miles disagreeing with Otto, they ended up in an alternate universe in order to find a way to defeat the Inheritors. The Spider-Man of Earth-1048 encouraged Miles to keep fighting and after that, they approached the Enigma Force.[110] After a heated argument with the Enigma Force, the Enigma Force eventually agreed to help the Spider-Army and turned Miles into Captain Universe. After he killed Solus with the Sword Vigor, he, along with the remaining Spider-Totems, were able to defeat the Inheritors and turn them into babies.[5]

War of the Realms

Miles, along with a group of other heroes, were gathered by Balder to form the Babysitters Club, and protect Laussa, the daughter of Odin, from the forces of Malekith's Dark Council.[111]

Leaving the Champions

When the Champions begun fighting Zzzax, Ms. Marvel and Viv Vision were killed in the process. Mephisto arrived and offered to rewind back time in order for the remaining heroes to save their teammates. Miles was filled with guilt and accepted Mephisto's offer, and the demon reversed time resurrecting their dead teammates but unwittingly allowing a girl Miles saved in the previous timeline die. After that, Miles told Kamala the truth of what happened, leading to Miles quitting the Champions until he could figure out what he really wanted to do and if he could handle the weight of being Spider-Man.[112] However, as Blackheart begun corrupting members of the Champions, Miles was forced to help his friends. He, along with Ms. Marvel, also revealed their identities to Nova in order to free him from Blackheart's corruption. Then all the Champions began fighting Blackheart, who had still a grudge against Miles,[82] and tried to use the deal that Miles made with Mephisto, but the Champions defeated Blackheart and the demon was taken down by his father since his son ruined his plans and promised to the Champions that he'll be back.[113]

Absolute Carnage

While fighting the Scorpion a few months later, Miles was beset by a horde of four-armed symbiote-monsters, recognizing the spirals on their faces as Knull's emblem. When Carnage arrived to claim Mac Gargan's Venom codex, Miles attempted to fight him off. Venom arrived to save the Scorpion from being killed, though Gargan suffered severe spinal trauma. However, Venom was unable to save Miles, who was overwhelmed and bonded to an offshoot of the Grendel symbiote, turning him into a six-armed symbiote-doppelganger.[114][15]

Under the symbiote's control, Miles was sent to kill J. Jonah Jameson alongside a Carnage doppelgänger formed from the serial killer Happy Dan Andrews; coming into conflict with Silver Sable and her Wild Pack.[115] Miles managed to separate himself from his symbiote with a Venom Blast, but willingly rebonded to it to spy on Dark Carnage's plans.[116] Evidently he succumbed to it once more, as he attacked Rex Strickland's warehouse alongside Dark Carnage and the Carnageized Norman Osborn, attempting to kill Eddie Brock. Miles' symbiote was electrocuted by Eddie, and Miles filled Eddie in on what he had learned of Dark Carnage's plans. However, they were unable to stop Dark Carnage from assimilating the Venom symbiote and becoming powerful enough to free Knull. Miles informed Eddie that the Maker had lied about his codex-extracting machine incinerating them, prompting Eddie to merge to the harvested codices into a gestalt symbiote and pursue Dark Carnage.[117]

Multiversal Adventures

After the restored Web of Life and Destiny started to be corrupted due to the Patternmaker going missing, Miles was recruited by Spider-Zero to help find Annie.[118] During his travelling, he aided Spider-Ma'am and her team in battling evil versions of themselves, including an evil version of himself, which were lead by a Carnage-possessed Aunt May. They were able to defeat them and Miles continued his search.[119] He then teamed up with SP//dr to fight against Kraven who had been enhanced Mister Sinister, but luckily they were victorious.[120] He helped Web-Slinger in defeating Scorpion,[4] and also helped The Spider-Man in battling Madame Swarm and after the battle Miles retrieved the Spider Idol statue which was necessary to fix the web.[121] After that, Miles, along with Spider-Zero and a number of spider-heroes, went to the web where they found out that a tangled node was formed and had trapped Spiderling. Out of pain and fear the tangle summoned the Machine Bem Monsters of Earth-51778 in order to fend off the spiders. While Spider-Zero used her powers to cure the web, Miles was successful in rescuing Spiderling from the tangle. After the tangle was undone, all of the spiders returned to their respective reality.[122]

Outlawed and Ultimatum

Following a grave accident involving Roxxon's Asgardian Dragon and the destruction of the Coles Academic High School, Ms. Marvel was left hospitalized. This caused the government to pass "Kamala's Law" which outlawed young superheros.[123]

Following this, C.R.A.D.L.E., lead by Dum Dum Dugan, began chasing after Miles for violating Kamala's Law. Spider-Man was able to evade them, but upon returning home, he found his house had been trashed and was suddenly attacked by a man looking exactly like him.[124] Miles tried to fight him, but the bootleg had Miles exact powers and movement. After his house got destroyed, Miles wore his suit and took the fight with his doppelganger on the roofs where they engaged in Venom Blasts battle which eventually knocked them both out, leaving Miles to be captured again by the Assessor.[125]

Then Ultimatum entered and revealed to Miles that he was in fact the Miles Morales of the 616 universe, while Spider-Man and his family were trespassers. He revealed to Miles that he planned to take over Brooklyn by turning the people he had sold his drug to into the Goblinoids and also send Spider-Man and his family back to their universe. However, Aaron, who was also captured by Ultimatum, freed himself and Spider-Man and temporarily knocked Ultimatum out before confronting the Green Goblin of their universe.[24] The uncle and nephew duo battled Norman and the Goblinoids, but were being overwhelmed. Luckily, Starling and Bombshell arrived to aid SPider-Man and together were able to defeat the Green Goblin. After that a giant Ultimatum caught up to them, intending to deal with his counterpart for good.[126]

Order of the Web

Now aware of his multiversal origins again, upon Julia Carpenter's warning an unknown force brought Spider-Man (Peter) into conflict with Sin-Eater, Miles attempted to sway him to abandon Stanley's target, Norman Osborn, to avoid the outcome from the other reality.[127] After Peter refused to and continued on, Miles became a founding member of the Order of the Web with the other spider heroes to save Peter from Norman, after the temporary abatement of Sin-Eater.[128] While escaping, Miles saw Norman's antagonism with Peter about Gwen cause his mentor to lose his cool, and tossed Norman out for Sin-Eater as they escaped.[129] From Peter's sacrifice of Norman sealing a deal with Kindred, Miles and the Order were possessed in consequence by a demon sent by Kindred to destroy Peter,[25] pursuing the veteran Spider-Man to the Sanctum Sanctorum.[130]

Under the control of Kindred, the Order were wrecking havoc across the city and even battling the New Warriors.[131] Arriving at the Brooklyn Bridge they attacked innocent bystanders and were also harming themselves, as Ghost-Spider threw Miles off the bridge on Kindred's order to taunt Peter even more forcing Peter to made a deal with the demon. Kindred accepted the deal and released the spider heroes from his control, just in time for Miles to recover and web-swing to safety.[132] The confused heroes were then met by Doctor Strange and Black Cat, as the sorcerer explained that they needed to collaborate in order to help Peter and they all ventured into the Astral Plane, leaving Black Cat behind to guard their way back.[133]
