The 'Community' actor lends his voice to the black Hispanic Spidey in the new season of Disney XD's 'Ultimate Spider-Man: Web Warriors'.

Miles Morales finally makes appearance on screen as a Spider-Man, even though it's only on television. The character is introduced in the new season of Disney XD's animated series ": Web Warriors", with voicing the teen. A sneak peek has landed online.

Miles was indeed inspired by Glover. Brian Michael Bendis created the character in Marvel Comics' "" series after finding out the actor's Twitter campaign to play the web-slinger in a movie. The writer also watched him wearing Spidey pajamas on his NBC sitcom.

"I don't think it's hit me necessarily yet how big of a deal that is. I'm very grateful for that, and it's cool to read the comic now," the "" actor told USA Today. "I never liked Superman that much, because I was like, 'Yo, this dude can't die. It's too easy.' "

"Batman is pretty fly. He's a close second, just because he doesn't really have powers. He's just a justice-driven vigilante. Spider-Man is the best because you just don't know who he is, and he's funny and he's poor. I understand Spider-Man a lot on that level. He's just trying to make it."

In the comics, Morales became a successor to Peter Parker. The character was applauded for making Spidey a racially diverse character, but when asked if there was a chance he could appear in "", producers Avi Arad and Matthew Tolmach seemed to rule it out.
