Who should take over Miles' book?

Post by Alistair » Sun Nov 12, 2017 10:42 am

With Bendis leaving Marvel, it seems that a lot of creative and editorial re-shuffling is in order; the obvious point of interest for the Spidey fan is what happens to Miles Morales? Regardless of what you think about him, I think given his frequent appearances in non-comics media as of late (MCU reference, the new TV show and the Insomniac game, to name a few) at least in the short term, he'll still be around. So, it's likely that Miles will continue to have his own book (be it Adjectiveless or Ultimate). Thus, which writer artist or creative team would you want to take over the book?

Hmm, good question. Who can write a balance of high school life and superhero adventures?

G. Willow Wilson handles that well in Ms. Marvel, but she isn't that prolific. Ta-Nehisi Coates would do some interesting stuff on social issues, but he seems likewise busy. Mark Waid's done teen heroes and private lives well, but Champions hasn't been a hit, creatively or in terms of sales.

Kieron Gillen's Young Avengers was quite good.

Raina Telgemier has written some very well regarded graphic novels for younger audiences (Smile, Ghosts) through Scholastic.

In terms of artists, you'd also need a similar combo, as well as someone who draws teens as teens (so no John Romita Jr.) It might make sense to keep someone who has already worked on the character (Sara Pichelli, Oscar Bazaldua, Nico Leon) to give the series visual continuity with the second big writer. I can't recall any complaints about the quality of artists on the series.

I've seen a suggestion for David Walker (Power Man and Iron Fist, Luke Cage) and I think he'd be a good pick.

I wouldn't mind Christos Gage or G. Willow Wilson personally.

I would like to see Ta-Nehisi Coates take on Miles, but I'd really like to see what Christopher Priest would do with him.

From what I've heard, G. Willow Wilson has a daughter with a heart condition, so it limits what she can spend her time on. Ms. Marvel seems to be the only book she is able to work on at this time.

As for other writers, I'd like to get a new creator to give their take on Miles. Marvel's problem has been relying too much on the old guard to write their material, and hasn't really taken steps to grow their own talent pool. Some new creator could use the chance to show what they can do on Miles' book.

Didn't know about Wilson's daughter, hope her daughter is ok considering. So I guess it's just Gage then from my earlier post. As for the talent pool well I can only go by who I've read LOL.
