Marvel has announced that writer Saladin Ahmed is set to deliver Miles Morales’ very own Clone Saga with a new story arc kicking off in the upcoming oversized anniversary issue Miles Morales: Spider-Man #25.
“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,” said Ahmed, referring to the controversial Clone Saga that ran in the pages of Amazing Spider-Man in the 1990s. “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!”
After months of buildup, the Clone Saga will be the culmination of many of the ongoing story threads that have been haunting Miles since the very beginning of Ahmed’s run. Readers will finally see the full extent of the Assessor’s meddling as his clone creations run rampant through Brooklyn. Designed by superstar artist and Marvel Stormbreaker Carmen Carnero, prepare to meet three distinct Miles clones, each one destined to turn Miles’ super hero career upside down.
The new Clone Saga will begin in Miles Morales: Spider-Man #25 this April.
