Miles Morales is getting a “Clone Saga” of his own! Starting this April, with Miles Morales: Spider-Man #25, Saladin Ahmed and Marvel’s Stormbreaker artist Carmen Carnero are teaming up to tell a new Clone Saga storyline for Miles Morales.
To promote the upcoming event, Marvel released an exciting new motion trailer, which shows Miles and Peter dealing with three bizarre looking Miles clones.
The original Clone Saga took place in the mid 1990s and was one of the most controversial Spider-Man storylines, but also one of the most memorable and best selling. It will be interesting to see if the Miles Morales version can generate a similar level of heat, though that often requires some sort of genuine controversy.
Miles Morales: Spider-Man #25 releases on April 28th! Check out the trailer and additional details below!

MILES MORALES SEES DOUBLE IN THE NEW MILES MORALES: SPIDER-MAN “CLONE SAGA” TRAILER
Writer Saladin Ahmed and artist Carmen Carnero bring you the Clone Saga-Miles Style
New York, NY— March 25, 2021 — On April 28th, Miles Morales is trapped in a Clone Saga of his own! The highly-anticipated new story arc in Saladin Ahmed’s run on the title will kick off in MILES MORALES: SPIDER-MAN #25. Ahmed will team up with Marvel’s Stormbreaker Carmen Carnero to bring fans a new take on one of the most talked about comic book storylines of the nineties.
This new storyline promises to mess up Miles’ life even more than Peter Parker’s Clone Saga messed up his! The young hero’s world will be turned upside down when he comes face-to-face with three distinct Miles clones, each expertly designed by Carnero. The result of the Assessor’s sinister meddling, these clone creations will spread havoc throughout Brooklyn and Miles is the only hero who can shut them down. Get your first look at this all-new trio of deadly doppelgangers in the MILES MORALES “CLONE SAGA” TRAILER, featuring never-before-seen artwork.
“Part of the magic of telling Marvel stories is not just the sense that these characters occupy the same universe, but they exist across generations,” Ahmed told IGN in a recent interview. “Putting a newer superstar character through some of the same paces a super hero legend went through gives us all sorts of insight into what makes Miles ‘Miles’ as well as what makes him Spider-Man.”
The fight of Miles Morales’ young super hero career has begun! Be there when MILES MORALES: SPIDER-MAN #25 hits stands on April 28th.
