The identity of a new Spider-Man character has been revealed, and they have a surprising connection to Miles Morales. Marvel recently teased a young hero named Spider-Smasher, who is set to appear in an upcoming story arc in Miles Morales: Spider-Man. The publisher has now revealed that Spider-Smasher is actually Miles' baby sister, Billie Morales. Now dubbed Capitán Billie, Spider-Smasher comes from an alternate timeline where Miles' evil clone Selim rose to power. The story arc is titled "Empire of the Spider" and Billie Morales is the leader of a rebellion that rises up to stop Selim.
"It blows my mind that, not only do I get to draw a chapter in one of the greatest sagas of all time, but I get to add something this significant to the story of one of my favorite characters!" Allen said.
A series of variant covers for Miles Morales: Spider-Man #38 offer more looks at Billie Morales' Spider-Smasher, including an original design sheet created by Christopher Allen. Billie's hair is cropped on the sides, and she's wearing a large brown trenchcoat. The armor she wears on her chest plate contains a red spider logo. She also has a pair of mechanical spider arms attached to her upper limbs that can extend and retract. The main cover to Miles Morales: Spider-Man #38 showcases Miles along with Spider-Smasher, Selim, and General Ganke wielding a staff.
Current issues of Miles' ongoing series have him teaming up with his heroic clone Shift, as they search the multiverse for his Uncle Aaron, who was believed to be dead.
