Subj: Miles Morales and the "Teenage Spider-Man" : Exploring the Development.
Posted: Sun Dec 05, 2021 at 05:12:16 pm EST (Viewed 130 times)

For a long time I wanted to understand where Marvel Comics got the idea that Spider-Man was ideally a teenager really originated from, given that he aged and grew up for some 30-odd years.

So I wrote two long posts exploring that.

Part 1:

I explore the various attempts at making a young Spider-Man leading up to Ultimate Spider-Man.

Part 2:

I actually think I might have put in one place the most detailed behind-the-scenes stuff about Ultimate Spider-Man, namely the context in which it happened, the people who came up with the idea, the influences, and also the real reasons for its success.

I also argue that there's a case to be made that Miles Morales and not Peter is "The First Teenage Spider-Man".

But anyway, if you have time left from your weekend, I look forward to hearing from you all on this.
