Peter Parker No Longer Spider-Man

But the next Spidey has his approval.

If you've been keeping up with the comics, you know that Marvel has been making some pretty big changes to their universe after the Secret Wars event. If you missed it: Peter Parker is no longer their headlining Spider-Man. That honor now rests upon the shoulders of Miles Morales, a new character that used to be living in an alternate universe. Secret Wars changed all of that: There are no more alternate universes, and now Miles is running with the Avengers. He's a recent addition, but fan reception has been fairly positive. And in Secret Wars #9 it seems like Peter Parker has placed his faith in Miles as well.
[Text]
Miles: Studying with a friend.
Peter: So not a total lie. More of a half-truth.
Miles: Something like that.
Peter: You eat a snack?
Miles: Uh-huh.
Peter: You do your homework.
Miles: Yeah.
Peter: You wanna go beat up some bad guys, Spider-Man?
Miles: Oh hell yes.

It's a beautiful moment!

Secret Wars was such a huge event, but this scene really struck me as special. Peter was still acting as a mentor, but it really feels like the identity belongs to Miles now. What does everyone else think?

@DonovanMoore same here. It feels really natural, especially after Miles and Peter worked together during Secret Wars

Been following Miles' adventures since day one. Stoked that he's on Marvel Prime Earth now. I think with Peter taking a more Global role, Miles is the perfect one to handle the street level things that Spiderman is known for.

@DigitalJediX definitely! kind of reminds me of the Batman Inc. arc that DC tried to do @Boggleman definitely it really feels like they're going back to what they were known for: good stories, strong characters, and under-represented voices
