Cummings. While Ms. Marvel took after Power Princess as Girl Power and Nova is now Kid Spectrum following in Doctor Spectrum’s footsteps, Miles Morales’ journey into Young Squadron # 1 is very different from those of his comrades, as they were quickly accepted by their SSA mentors.
In Miles’ case, he grew up idolizing superheroes, with a special love for Nighthawk and Falcon, the Batman and Robin of this changed reality. However, Falcon was killed by Nighthawk’s enemy known as the Goblin, tragically mirroring the death of Jason Todd’s Robin who was killed by the Joker in DC Comics. Some time later, Miles saw the opportunity to audition to be Nighthawk’s new Falcon with his own flight gear that he built himself. Likewise, it also bears a similarity to how Tim Drake auditioned / applied to be Batman’s next Robin. However, Nighthawk rejected Miles … hard.

Despite his claims that he wanted to “help” Miles, Girl Power and Kid Spectrum were smart enough to realize that Nighthawk was lying, and they covered up for their new friend. While it looks like the relationship with the Marvel version of Batman hasn’t transferred, it’s still cool to see. Miles Morales like the new Falcon and Robin counterpart nevertheless in Hero Reborn.
