Background

Miles Morales was the nephew of the villain Prowler, who stole the recreated formula for Spider Man’s powers and by chance stole one of the spiders that had given Parker his powers too. This spider bit Morales when he was visiting his uncle, and gave him Spider-Man’s powers.

Whereas originally dreading the idea of changing into a superhero, he’s later inspired by the story of Peter Parker and his loss of life by the hands of Inexperienced Goblin. He was apprehended by S.H.I.E.L.D. for pretending to be Spider-Man, but after serving to re-capture Electro, they gave him a new black and purple go well with and gave him permission to fight crime as the brand new Spider-Man. He now fights crime as the masked “Child Arachnid”.
