Rumors abound on who will be the next Friendly Neighborhood Webslinger. After Marvel declared that Miles Morales would not be joining the MCU, I’d hoped— really hoped— that they might exercise a damn loophole. Where’s it written that Peter Parker has to be white?

Seriously. Change it up! I know it’ll probably never happen, obviously, but it’s possible. It *should* be possible. “We’ve always done things that way” is the weakest justification imaginable for continuing a trend. Tradition is nothing more than the old way of doing things.

Change it up, Marvel. You have that opportunity. DO something with it.
