Since Spider-Man is undoubtedly one of the most beloved superhero characters from the Marvel Cinematic Universe, it is not really a surprise that his games by Insomniac Games are equally loved as well. In the most recent follow-up to the Spider-Man (2018) and Spider-Man: Miles Morales (2020) games, Peter Parker, Miles Morales, and Mary Jane take on different missions to eliminate each new threat popping up for NYC: including Kraven the Hunter and Venom.
Yet, the most recent update to the game titled ‘Spider-Man 2’ took a slightly different turn as Peter Parker handed over the superhero mantle to Miles Morales just to rest down for a while. And as unexpected as it was to the creators, most fans are loving and supporting this new update.
Peter Parker Hands Over The Mantle To Miles Morales In Spider-Man 2 Update
Insomniac’s third installment of the Spider-Man games for PlayStation 5 has been as immense of a success as the previous ones. Not only has it become one of fans’ favorite superhero video games to be created to date, but it has also been quintessential for all the stories told about the web-slinger.
In the game, fans have seen their favorite superheroes evolve and mature with time and with each new villain that they fight, with the game getting more and more exciting with each new update.
However, the most recent update of the video game has opted for a slightly different road where Peter Parker hands down his superhero mantle to Miles Morales since he needs a break and wants to settle down with MJ for a while.
And as unexpected as it was, most fans are in complete support of this unseen turn. Taking to X to share their opinion, X user @EARTH_1610_616 extended his support to the update, saying:

Piling in the comment section of the tweet went viral, numerous fans and gamers have shared their own opinions on this new update where basically Miles Morales is the new lead while Peter Parker tries to enjoy his life a bit more through the normal way.
Some fans are in complete support of this update, admitting to how much they agree that Parker needs a break:
Peter Parker deserves to finally get a life outside of Spider-Man. He’s been struggling for so long to balance life and now he can just be happy that makes me smile 😊 no better person to pass the torch to 🤟🏾

Honestly I love them both, even though I like Peter a little more. But Miles being the main for now is actually a good thing imo. Peter can finally take a break and be happy with MJ. Let this man enjoy life at least once. He’s been trough enough.

Like I like the Idea of Pete just chilling out for a while, man dealt with a lotta shit for years with his only break seeming to be working abroad. Like I don’t doubt Pete will be back in action but man just let him lie down

Yeah, it makes me very excited to get to see miles grow even more and go through SO MUCH potentially as the main character. I would love to have Peter still be around but miles as the new main is exciting for sure

Some others, in the meanwhile, are sure that Peter Parker will return so that they can finally have Parker fight Norman Osborn and Doc Ock the most spectacular battle that they have been yearning for for so long.
He’s just taking a break for a bit like he did in Miles’ solo adventure. He’ll be back for the third game because Norman and Otto’s shenanigans.

The fact people are upset that insomniac said miles gonna be the main Spider-Man while Peter takes a set back is crazy 💀 as if it wasn’t applied either the ending of the game that Peter will be taking a break for a while

I mean it’s not really a break. He’s just letting Miles deal with all the small crime.
I’m pretty sure if another world ending threat appears; Peter isn’t just gonna sit back and relax.

I think people are reading into this too much. The quote reiterated the ending, in which Peter takes a break to get his life together while Miles is the primary Spidey. But nowhere in the quote is it suggested that this is the actual, permanent status quo of SM3.

Nonetheless, Insomniac Games’ Spider-Man 2 game seems to be getting better with new updates as it brings about new changes to Peter Parker, Miles Morales, and Mary Jane‘s worlds.
