What if Miles Morales had never been bitten by a genetically enhanced spider? What if, instead, the U.S. government recruited, trained, and granted him incredible powers with the Super-Soldier Serum, making him a friendly neighborhood Captain America? Or perhaps Miles was taken from everything he ever knew — his family, his home, his entire life — and transformed into the immortal weapon of war known as the Wolverine! If he was blasted by gamma radiation and turned into a Hulk, would Miles be man or monster? And are there other superheroes that the many Miles of the multiverse might have become instead of Spider-Man? You bet there are! But most importantly — what makes Miles Morales a hero no matter the circumstances, no matter the reality?

A Marvel YA Spider-Man Novel

“Everyone gets mad at hustlers, especially if you’re on the victim side of the hustle. And Miles knew hustling was in his veins.”

Miles Morales is just your average teenager. Dinner every Sunday with his parents, chilling out playing old-school video games with his best friend, Ganke, crushing on brainy, beautiful poet Alicia. He’s even got a scholarship spot at the prestigious Brooklyn Visions Academy. Oh yeah, and he’s Spider Man.

But lately, Miles’s spidey-sense has been on the fritz. When a misunderstanding leads to his suspension from school, Miles begins to question his abilities. After all, his dad and uncle were Brooklyn jack-boys with criminal records. Maybe kids like Miles aren’t meant to be superheroes. Maybe Miles should take his dad’s advice and focus on saving himself.

As Miles tries to get his school life back on track, he can’t shake the vivid nightmares that continue to haunt him. Nor can he avoid the relentless buzz of his spidey-sense every day in history class, amidst his teacher’s lectures on the historical benefits of slavery and the importance of the modern-day prison system. But after his scholarship is threatened, Miles uncovers a chilling plot, one that puts his friends, his neighborhood, and himself at risk.

It’s time for Miles to suit up.
