Sometimes, peer pressure is hard to ignore. When it’s coming from your friends and the girl you like? Forget it. Miles Morales doesn’t stand a chance. In Miles Morales: Spider-Man #4, this teenage superhero agrees to break the rules in order to have a little fun, but will the cost be worth it? With his vice principal determined to kick him out of Brooklyn Visions Academy, the stakes are ridiculously high.
