"I was given these powers for a reason. You said it. And I sit here... scared of my dad... I'm scared of everything... And now look at what's happened! "
When Norman Osborn was arrested by S.H.I.E.L.D, and revealed to the public as the Green Goblin by the Daily Bugle, Oscorp was left abandoned. Nearly two months before Peter Parker's death, a thief broke into Osborn Industries to steal valuables. Unknown to the thief the Genetically Altered Super Spider that Norman had previously managed to recreate, crawled into his bag.
Miles, after being awarded the final spot in a Charter School Lottery, visited his uncle Aaron, against his parents' wishes. While they discussed the opportunities that the school could open to him, the Genetically Altered Super Spider emerged from Aaron's bag and bit Miles on his hand, causing him to pass out and foam at the mouth. Later, when Miles awoke, Aaron was confronted by Miles' father. During a brief confrontation, Miles fled from Aaron's apartment. While hiding from his father on the street, Miles realized that he was starting to become invisible.
Miles runs down the street and encounters two movers lifting a flat-screen television across the sidewalk. Instinctively Miles leaps over the television. The surrounding spectators stare at him in amazement and are baffled when he then vanishes into thin air, exclaiming that he must be a mutant. Miles then hides in a nearby alleyway and once again becomes visible. While continuing down the street he comes across a gang of older kids. One of them grabs his bag and demands he either give him some food or an iPad. Miles then grabs the kid by the wrist and manages to stun him, much like the spider had done to him earlier before he passed out. Miles, afraid he might be a mutant, visited his best friend, Ganke, and confessed his new-found abilities to him and demonstrated his Venom Strike on a lego model. Ganke, who was also accepted to the same school as Miles, was amazed and immediately started doing research to explain the phenomenon.
Mr. Morales arrived at Ganke's house and ordered Miles to come with him. The two then sat on a park bench and discussed the reasons he didn't want Miles hanging around Aaron; because he was a thief. Ice Man and the Human Torch then flew by, causing Mr. Morales to comment negatively on the existence of mutants.
That night Miles received a text message from Ganke, explaining that he had found a newspaper article which explained that Spider-Man received his spider-powers through a spider bite as well. This prompted Miles to attempt to climb the walls of his bedroom, which he did successfully, causing him to exclaim "Oh no."Ganke quickly arrives at Miles' house and is overjoyed when Miles demonstrates his wall-crawling ability. Miles, however, tells Ganke that he just wants to be normal. Ganke suggests they go speak to Uncle Aaron and find out what he knows about the Spider, despite his father forbidding him speaking to Aaron.
The next day they arrive at Aaron's apartment but he, and all of his belongings, are missing. Confused, Miles and Ganke leave when they notice a crowd observing a burning building. Ganke, as well as the crowd of bystanders, watch in awe as Miles rescues a woman and a helpless young girl and her dog. Miles then retreats to a nearby alleyway and vomits. He again vows that he just wants a normal life, and decides to leave the heroism to the actual Spider-Man.
Over the next two months Miles and Ganke move into their dormatory at their new charter school and meet their new roommate, Judge. One night, while Miles slept, Miles dreamed that Electro entered his dorm and electrocuted him. He woke up in a panic, but realized it was just a dream. Almost immediately a teacher entered their room and rushed them to the gymnasium due to an emergency. In the gym, another teacher stated that there was some sort of super hero brawl on the Queensboro Bridge and that Spider-Man had been shot.Miles tells Ganke to cover for him and he sneaks out to find, and help, the wounded Spider-Man. While jumping and climbing over buildings he notices a blue electrical flash (Electro got shot by Aunt May) off in the distance so he heads towards it. As he got closer there was a bigger explosion (the truck which Peter used to kill Osborn). By the time Miles arrived in Queens it was already too late. He watched Spider-Man say his last words to an older woman and then died. While Mary Jane held Peter's body, Miles snuck through the crowd and asked Gwen Stacy what Spider-Man's name was, and she replied "Peter Parker".
Becoming the new Spider-Man
Miles was struck with grief over not being able to help Spider-Man before his untimely demise, stating that if he had done more with his powers over the last few months the real Spider-Man might still be alive. Ganke suggests that perhaps he was given powers to become the next Spider-Man.
Later, Miles and Ganke attend Peter's funeral. He once again speaks to Gwen, who tells him that Peter did what he did because he was following his uncle's philosophy, that "With great power, there must also come great responsibility", and that he felt responsible for his uncle's death. Miles immediately decided that he would become the new Spider-Man and began sketching costume designs.
Ganke, having worn a Spider-Man costume for Halloween the previous year, offered it to Miles, even though it was a little too large. Miles went on his first ever patrol of the city, leaping from building to building. He even fought the Kangaroo. The next day Ultimate Spider-Woman, still mad at the death of Peter/Ultimate Spider-Man, gave Miles a new black and red suit for crime fighting.
- Miles' black and red costume appears as an alternate costume in the game, Spider-Man: Edge of Time, for his predecessor's Mainstream counterpart.
- Miles' parents names were revealed in the letter page of New Ultimate Spider-Man issue 8.
- Miles' father is African-American and his mother is Puerto Rican.
- While the original spider that created Spider-Man was killed, the new enhanced spider survived and can still bite others to create new spider-enhanced humans.
- Miles, unlike Peter, wears his web-shooters on the outside of his costume.
- Mile's greatest fear is that his secret identity could cause the death of his family.
- Miles became Spider-Man when he was thirteen, but his predecessor Peter Parker took up the mask when he was fifteen.
- Miles last name is Morales which is his mother's last name and not his father's last name, which is Davis.
- Miles takes his mother's last name similar to how Miguel O'Hara Spider-Man 2099 takes his mother's last name.
