Marvel Comics is looking to take a leadership role in comics' hopefully more inclusive future. Yeah, it's a secondary continuity, but they're trying, dammit! The relaunch of Ultimate Spider-Man as Miles Morales: The Ultimate Spider-Man is Marvel's way of showing their intent to hinge their Twenty First Century imprint Ultimate Comics to this multiracial character the way the mainstream Marvel U revolved around Peter Parker in much of the Twentieth.
Is the Ultimate Universe finally living up to its goal of making comics designed to be relevant to a changing and otherwise uninterested world?
