Miles Morales is hitting the big time! Not only is he joining the Marvel Universe, but he's also a card-carrying Avenger, rubbing shoulders with the likes of Iron Man, Thor and Captain America! But how have Miles' first eight months been, coming to grips with an All-new, All-Different new York? One thing is the same--nonstop action! Like when Earth's Mightiest Heroes all fall, and Miles stands alone against a villain with the power to destroy the universe. Or when the Black Cat tries to get her claws in this new Spider-Man. Then there's Miles' toughest foe yet--his grandmother! But his grades might be his biggest challenge...maybe a study session (date?) with fellow Avenger Ms. Marvel might help? Not likely! Don't miss the start of Miles Morales' adventures in the Marvel Universe!
