While Peter Parker and Miles Morales work together in First Strike #1, the seeds for a conflict between them are sowed, and the conflict is likely to escalate as the Gang War event continues. However, by choosing to explore the impact of Peter ghosting Miles, the event series allows Miles to grow as a character and branch out.

The same is evident through his partnership with Misty Knight. Meanwhile, Miles’ frustrations with Peter and the elder Spider-Man acting like nothing has changed only highlight the harsh reality of their friendship. The conflict showcases Miles is still unaware of how adult friendships function.
