Miles Morales is Spider-Man. Now living in the main Marvel Universe alongside the Peter Parker we've known and loved for decades, both characters carry the name Spider-Man as Miles, by far the younger of the two, continues to struggle to figure out who he is, both as a young man (he's still a teenager in high school) and as a superhero.

While Miles may seem to have come out of nowhere, the young, black Spider-Man has a fanbase that seems to rival any other Marvel Comics character, despite only being around for little more than half a decade. He's caught on quickly, and his star is only on the rise.

In two minutes, we tell you the story of Miles Morales, how actor Donald Glover has been involved in the character not once, not twice, but three times, and why this Ultimate Spider-Man is one you need to get to know.
