15. Miles Morales —
With the election of President Barack Obama some interesting changes happened in comic books. One of them was the death of longtime Marvel hero, Peter Parker, ending the reign of Spider-Man. The next was the creation of Miles Morales, a teenager of African American and Latino descent, who would take his place.
