Miles Morales: Spider-Man by Jason ReynoldsEveryone gets mad at hustlers, especially if youre on the victim side of the hustle. And Miles knew hustling was in his veins.
Miles Morales is just your average teenager. Dinner every Sunday with his parents, chilling out playing old-school video games with his best friend, Ganke, crushing on brainy, beautiful poet Alicia. Hes even got a scholarship spot at the prestigious Brooklyn Visions Academy. Oh yeah, and hes Spider Man.
But lately, Miless spidey-sense has been on the fritz. When a misunderstanding leads to his suspension from school, Miles begins to question his abilities. After all, his dad and uncle were Brooklyn jack-boys with criminal records. Maybe kids like Miles arent meant to be superheroes. Maybe Miles should take his dads advice and focus on saving himself.
As Miles tries to get his school life back on track, he cant shake the vivid nightmares that continue to haunt him. Nor can he avoid the relentless buzz of his spidey-sense every day in history class, amidst his teachers lectures on the historical benefits of slavery and the modern-day prison system. But after his scholarship is threatened, Miles uncovers a chilling plot, one that puts his friends, his neighborhood, and himself at risk.
Its time for Miles to suit up.
Peter Benjamin Parker is a high school student who gained spider-like abilities, fighting crime across New York City as the alter ego Spider-Man , hoping someday, he will live up to his heroes in the Avengers. While Parker juggled all his continued superhero duties with the demands of his high-school life, he was approached by Tony Stark who recruited Spider-Man to join the Avengers Civil War , putting Spider-Man into the brief conflict with his personal hero, Captain America. Parker then agreed and was given his new suit as well as brand new Stark technology in exchange for all his help, although Stark still did not make him an official member of the Avengers and instead returned Parker back home to continue his own hero work. While he continued to try and prove himself as a worthy hero in the eyes of Iron Man so he could join the Avengers, Parker had encountered the illegal activities of the Vulture , who was attempting to sell his Chitauri based weapons onto the black market. Believing that capturing the Vulture would prove his worth as the hero, Spider-Man decided to go after the Vulture alone, with only Ned Leeds ' help, while keeping his secrets from Aunt May , gaining the affections of Liz Toomes , and also trying to win his decathlon finals. Eventually, Spider-Man had learned the Vulture was Toomes' father and then stopped his robbery of their Stark Cargo Plane , resulting in Stark offering Parker his place with the Avengers, which Parker turned down in order to continue being a small time hero in New York. Spider-Man was pulled back into the Avengers' conflict when the Black Order had invaded the Earth and then managed to successfully kidnap Doctor Strange , which resulted in Spider-Man being dragged onboard their ship with Iron Man.
