Miles Morales is the main protagonist of the 2018 Marvel animated film, Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse. He is a young high school student who was bitten by a radioactive spider and gained the powers of a spider. After meeting the actual Spider-Man, as well as alternate versions of the hero, he assists them in taking down Kingpin while accepting the mantle as the new Spider-Man of his universe.

He is voiced by Shameik Moore.

Characteristics

Personality

When first shown, Miles is a mostly a regular teenager. He is uninterested in his new school life and does not try to perform well, even purposefully trying to flunk a test just to prove he couldn't make it at his new school so he could return to his original school. This stems from his own doubts and insecurities, believing he didn't have the skills or the potential to make it at a prestigious school such as Brooklyn Visions Academy. After being bitten by a radioactive spider and meeting other versions Spider-Man, he is similarly reluctant and unsure of whether to embrace his new abilities and become a crime-fighter. However, he soon comes to accept his powers and embraces his role as the new Spider-Man of his world.

Power and Abilities

After having been bitten by a genetically altered spider, Miles gains the proportionate abilities of a spider, nearly identical to Spider-Man himself. This includes superhuman strength, speed, agility, and durability, as well as the ability to climb walls. Like Spider-Man, Miles possesses the Spider-Sense, a sixth sense which allows him to sense incoming danger and react to it accordingly. However, unlike his universe's Spider-Man, Miles also gained additional abilities. This includes the ability to camouflage and to produce electricity from his hands. Besides his superhuman abilities, Miles also possesses a remarkable intellect, which is what allowed him to enter Brooklyn Visions Academy.
