Why Are You Giving Miles Morales Clones?

So apparently, Marvel Comics... yes, they still do comics. Largely terrible ones, these days, but that's besides the point.

So Marvel has decided that their Miles Morales character needed more classic Spider-Man failures to certify his status as a Spider-Man for all people and are going to give him his very own Clone Saga... because everyone loved the first Clone Saga so much, it drove Marvel into bankruptcy.

Look, I'm largely unfamiliar with the Miles Morales take on Spider-Man. I've only read a couple issues and also that Spider-Men mini from a couple years back. Seems like a pretty cool character and I even saw that Spider-Verse movie where he played a focal point and was subsequently the best part of the movie. I've got no ill towards anybody trying to give Miles as many Spider-Man tropes as they can, even if I don't believe it necessary. Let Miles stand on his own and forge his own path.

But... if you are going to recycle old Spidey bits, can't you do recycle something that isn't total shit? The Clone Saga was one of many, many, MANY stupid decisions that Marvel made in the nineties and none of that stuff was ever any good. So to give Miles that similar idea (if not execution) is just... well, it's so Marvel, I guess.

I don't know. Maybe it'll be good, but I doubt it. Like I said, a lot of Marvel stuff these days outside of their earliest MCU flicks have been kind of trash and I don't have high hopes for this one.

Oh well... good luck, Miles. You'll need it.
