‘Miles Morales: Spider-Man’ Complicates Life With A Brand New Villain
by Tony Thornley
One of the things Miles Morales has needed most since the end of Secret Wars has been his own rogues. December’s new Miles Morales: Spider-Man does exactly that out of the gate as we meet RABBLE.
Hinted at in Miles Morales #1, Rabble will make an impact on Miles’ life in the volume’s second issue. Writer Cody Ziglar and artist Federico Vincentini are going to make sure this new villain doesn’t take it easy on Miles.
From Marvel’s press release: The tech-genius will use an army of drones and deadly never-before-seen gadgetry to upgrade Miles’ rogues gallery like never before. Relentlessly seeking to settle a long-brewing personal agenda against Miles, the mysterious villain is set to destroy every aspect of Miles’ life from his friends to his family. And that’s only step one of her plan… What’s at the root her deep hatred of Spider-Man?
“It’s fantastic to work on this new character,” Vicentini said. “I was given total freedom of creation. Based on Cody’s description and on his notes, I had a clear idea of how I wanted to portray the armor; it had to be something rough, but resistant and ingenious at the same time. And thanks also to the drones, Rabble’s gonna rock! Brace yourself, Miles!”
Rabble busts loose in Miles Morales: Spider-Man #1, and is featured on the main and variant covers for issue #3, from Vincentini, Jonboy Meyers and Dike Ruan. Check them out here and be sure to pick up Miles Morales: Spider-Man #1 December 7th!
