We’ve known for quite some time that Miles Morales would be spinning his webs in the Prime Marvel Universe after the events of Secret Wars and the destruction of the Ultimate Universe.  In fact, Miles has been swinging around his new universe for a while now, having made appearances in other books, namely All-New All-Different Avengers for the past 3 months.

Which brings us to today’s release of Spider-Man #1.  Marvel has been staggering their new releases post Secret Wars for many reasons.  One, though they will downplay it as much as possible, the lengthy delays of Secret Wars itself.  Two, they wanted to spread their new number ones out so that they weren’t clobbering each other ala DC’s New 52 (and it looks like their upcoming Reboot Rebirth project.)  But third, and maybe most inportantly for this book, they wanted to get the band back together.  What I mean by that is Spider-Man #1 sees the reunion of Miles creators Brian Michael Bendis and Sara Pichelli.

As for the issue itself, I found it a bit uneven.  If you are a fan of Miles you will likely be happy with it, but several aspects of it came off a bit strange to me.  I’ll dive into them more after the cut as things will get a bit spoilery.

It’s no surprise that Ultimate Marvel breakout star Miles Morales would continue web slinging after Secret Wars in the new Marvel Universe.  He was one of the few truly original characters to come out of the Ultimate Universe, well, as original as a Spider-Man derivative can be.  He has been one of Marvel’s most popular characters, in any universe, since his debut in 2011 following the death of the Ultimate U’s Peter Parker/Spider-Man.

It’s been pretty much confirmed that Miles would be a big part of the post Secret Wars Marvel with his appearance as one of the newest Avengers in the Free Comic Book Day book from Marvel.  Over the weekend Marvel confirmed via the Daily News that Miles wouldn’t just be A Spider-Man, but would be THE Spider-Man.  The driving force behind all this seems to stem from the fanfare created by cries for Miles to become the next onscreen version of Spider-Man.  While that won’t happen anytime soon, those pleas did not fall on deaf ears.

The question now becomes, what of Peter Parker?
