Announced last month, writer Cody Ziglar and artist Federico Vicentini are set to launch a new Miles Morales: Spider-Man book arriving on December 7th that aims to take a back to basics approach with the character including the return of his original costume. However, life will be anything but simple for Miles as Marvel has revealed details about a new villain named Rabble who will be tormenting Miles.
Kicking off in December, MILES MORALES: SPIDER-MAN’s new series will be defined by a dangerous new foe… In this highly-anticipated new run, writer Cody Ziglar and newly christened Marvel’s Stormbreaker artist Federico Vicentini don’t plan to pull any punches when it comes to putting Miles through the ringer and the hero’s biggest defeat will come at the hands of RABBLE. The tech-genius will use an army of drones and deadly never-before-seen gadgetry to upgrade Miles’ rogues gallery like never before. Relentlessly seeking to settle a long-brewing personal agenda against Miles, the mysterious villain is set to destroy every aspect of Miles’ life from his friends to his family. And that’s only step one of her plan… What’s at the root her deep hatred of Spider-Man?
Vicentini described the design process of Rabble and teased the new villain:
“It’s fantastic to work on this new character. I was given total freedom of creation. Based on Cody’s description and on his notes, I had a clear idea of how I wanted to portray the armor; it had to be something rough, but resistant and ingenious at the same time. And thanks also to the drones, Rabble’s gonna rock! Brace yourself, Miles!”
Though debuting in Miles Morales: Spider-Man #2 in January, fans will get hints of Rabble in the first issue in December. In the meantime, Marvel has unveiled two variant covers for Miles Morales: Spider-Man #2 by Jonboy Meyers and a Design Variant Cover by Federico Vicentini. In addition, the publisher has released the cover for Miles Morales: Spider-Man #3 by cover artist Dike Ruan giving fans a glimpse at Rabble’s brutal takedown of Miles.
Look for the Miles Morales: Spider-Man #2 to arrive in stores and digitally on January 11, 2023 and Miles Morales: Spider-Man #3 to arrive on February 1, 2023.
