Hitting comic book store shelves today, Ultimate Comics Spider-Man #1 introduces the world to Miles Morales, the African America / Latino replacement for the deceased Peter Parker, and while you can't play him in Spider-Man: Edge of Time you can definitely dress like him.

Ah, the Ultimate universe, Marvel's way of making sweeping changes to its established canon without actually changing anything significant. Peter Parker is dead, but he's not the real Peter Parker, so that's okay. In his place comes Miles, taking up the mantle of Spider-Man with a few notable wardrobe modifications.

And wouldn't you know it, you can wear that brand-new costume in Spider-Man: Edge of Time when it comes out next month. You won't be Miles. You'll just be wearing his clothes. It's amazingly appropriate when you think about it.

The blatant pandering to minorties. It burns.

Hey Marvel, last time I checked, you had..what 60 various black superheroes and villians. If your want to 'reach out', why not dust some of them off and use them in a viable storyline? If you can change Power Man from the the jive talking-gold chain wearing-Dolemite-clone he was for 15 something years, you can use some of the current stable without pissing on Peter Parker even more.

As a black man, this offends me almost as much as Marcus from those godawful PSP ads.
