Miles Morales

The Amazing Spider-Man 2 will be the first big movie of the summer box office season when it hits theaters on May 2, and we can't wait to grab a bucket of popcorn, throw on our 3D glasses and check it out. We're especially excited to see Jamie Foxx join the crew as Spidey's new nemesis, Electro. In honor of Foxx, we're celebrating all the characters of color in the Marvel Universe.

The current version of Spider-Man, a 13-year-old boy named Miles Morales from Brooklyn, was inspired by both President Barack Obama and actor Donald Glover. When he took on the Spider-Man identity after Peter Parker's death, Morales became the first Black Spider-Man in Marvel history.
