Spiderman is black, and hispanic?!

Marvel’s Ultimate Fallout #4 features the first appearance of the new Spider-Man, Miles Morales after good old Peter Parker was killed off.


“Spiderman (sic) now to be Half Black, Half Latino and Gay?” wonders the Christian Post. “Is The New Spiderman (sic) Gay?,” Instinct wants to know. “Marvel Comics reveals the new Spider Man is black – and he could be gay in the future,” declares the Daily Mail.

Marvel never said Miles is gay, nor did they hint at it, and in fact they've confirmed that he is NOT. It appears the rumor started due to a misreading of a quote from USA Today’s reveal “Maybe sooner or later a black or gay — or both — hero will be considered something absolutely normal,” so yeah, Spidey may be blacktino, but he isn't gay.
