It was only a matter of time until Miles would have to deal with clones. Marvel has announced that Miles Morales: Spider-Man will be getting a Clone Saga starting April with issue 25.
Here’s what the writer of Miles Morales: Spider-Man, Saladin Ahmed, had to say about the upcoming arc:
When Peter Parker faced his own ‘Clone Saga’ years ago, he was taking part in what was already one of the most iconic traditions in comics—the hero battling a version of themselves. Since the very first issue of MILES MORALES: SPIDER-MAN, I’ve known that I wanted put Miles through that iconic wringer in his own distinctive way. Miles’ CLONE SAGA is a story that has been months, even years, in the making. We’ve been planting its seeds throughout the series, from the horrors of being abducted by the Assessor to the confrontations and sacrifices of the Ultimatum epic. Moments from the past will come back to haunt Miles, and the events of the story will ensnare everyone from his baby sister to Peter Parker (who knows a thing or two about dealing with clones). The ramifications will be felt for years, and it all starts in April!
I knew that Miles would have his own clone story one day. As much I enjoyed the original Clone Saga (even Ultimate Spider-Man‘s version) because it gave me Ben Reilly and Kaine Parker, it overstayed its welcome and I hope that doesn’t happen with Miles Morales: Spider-Man. What I’m looking forward to is what kind of clones we would get popular from this story too. I have a lot of faith that Saladin Ahmed is going to knock it out of the park.
