Don't read if you don’t want to know who the new Ultimate Spider-Man is...

No, seriously, don't read this post if you don’t want to learn who the new Spider-Man will be in Marvel’s Ultimate Comic universe.

As some of you may know, Ultimate Spider-Man was recently killed off and well, there is apparently a new Spidey in town...

Personally we’re not sure how we feel about this, but really, out of respect for those who might not want to know (like me — thanks Walt), we are providing this thinly-veiled digital curtain.

OK kids, iv you made the jump, then you want to know. According to USA Today, the new Ultimate Spidey is...well, let’s let them tell you..
Revealed in Marvel Comics' Ultimate Fallout Issue 4, out Wednesday, the new Spider-Man in the Ultimate universe is a half-black, half-Hispanic teen named Miles Morales. He takes over the gig held by Peter Parker, who was killed in Ultimate Spider-Man Issue 160 in June.
In his first appearance, he simply breaks up a fight. But readers will learn the true origin of Morales and how he became the new Spider-Man when Ultimate Spider-Man relaunches in September with a new No. 1 issue.
"The theme is the same: With great power comes great responsibility," says writer Brian Michael Bendis. "He's going to learn that. Then he has to figure out what that means."

And now...The new Ultimate Spidey!

This is either a giant leap forward, or a huge PR pandering move on the part of Marvel. I’m not sure, and it is way too early to tell.
