From Mail Online (thanks for passing it along Rayka!):
Marvel Comics reveals the new Spider Man is black - and he could be gay in the future.
He started life as a white science geek living with his uncle.
But now to reflect the racial changes in America Spider Man has been given a makeover - as a half black half Latino teen.
Miles Morales has replaced Peter Parker as the face behind the famous webbed mask, Marvel Comics has revealed.
In the latest edition of the Ultimate Fallout series he pulls back the disguise and shows his face for the first time.
Fans will have to wait until the official Spider Man relaunch next month to find out how he came to be the superhero.
But another surprise could be in the pipeline after his creators said that in the future they would not rule out making him gay.
