Spider-Man 3 may have created Miles Morales with a symbiotic twist
Thanks to the Spider-Man: No Way Home post-credits, fans may have gotten the Miles Morales MCU origin story, but with a horrific twist.
WARNING: The following contains major spoilers for Spider-Man: No Way Home, currently playing in theaters.
While fans enjoyed Miles Morales’ epic adventures in Sony Spider-Man: Into The Spider-Verse, many wondered when and where he would debut in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Spider-Man: Homecoming included an Easter egg about being Prowler’s nephew, after all, but since then the focus has been on Tom Holland’s Peter Parker. Well, thanks to the mid-credits scene of Spider-Man: No Path Home, fans may have understood Miles’ MCU origin story, but with a horrific twist.
In No way homeOn the mid-credits scene, Tom Hardy’s Eddie Brock was teleported from a bar likely to the Sony Spider-Verse after giving up the Spider-Man fight. However, some Venom goop was left behind and it was already on the move, bustling about and seemingly looking for a new host in this new region of the multiverse.
This creates an avenue where he could seek out a vulnerable person like Eddie, who wants to change the world, and hold on to them. While Miles was bitten by an Oscorp spider created from Peter Parker’s blood in the comics, the MCU could ask the alien symbiote to use Miles as a host, giving him his powers in this new dimension.
As seen in the Venom movies, whether it’s Eddie’s Alien or Carnage, once they have a ship to attach to, they shoot tendrils and can swing and jump like Spidey does. As such, ordinary men who are not bitten by spiders can indeed become a spider with this link and prey on criminals. Changing Miles’ power source would be an unpredictable but welcome move, as the spider bite has been played out for decades in many movies, cartoons, video games, and, of course, the comics. If Miles also has a lot of pent-up anger, he could become more dangerous with a symbiote, especially given the oppression in New York City, which Prowler says caused him to turn to a life of crime.
Making Miles a less heroic figure would be daring but could make him more accessible. He would be an urban teenager wanting to break an oppressive system, fighting against capitalism and a society that makes people of color and minorities forgotten. The MCU has turned to politics in some projects, so this change may make Miles a likable Killmonger-style villain, or an antihero with his vigilante ways.
Previously, Falcon and the Winter Soldier brought up Bucky’s white privilege, so when Peter comes to slow Miles down, Miles could explain how Peter will never know what it’s like to be a black person who is not treated as an equal. This could introduce themes such as white savior complexes, police brutality, and injustice, while paving the way for Miles to dissect the mantra “with great power comes great responsibility” and whether or not he does it. good thing.
Giving Miles a symbiotic origin might allow him to see the darkness within, and having to help an abusive youth heal might help Peter exorcise his own demons, as he might still have issues with rage after the untimely death of aunt may in No way home. Ultimately, Miles in the Black Symbiote Suit works well for a new MCU narrative. It could make him a social justice warrior who needs a temper and a mentor, which could also help the two Spider-Men become what the Big Apple really needs. And since Peter has lost his friends and family, and he and Miles are said to have a smaller age gap, the two can become Spider-Siblings in another new but intriguing dynamic.
