Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse changed superhero pop culture. It turned Miles Morales into a household name, along with the very idea of a multiverse full of spiders.

Comic books have been around for decades, weathering ups and downs in their popularity. As times change, old heroes evolve and new heroes rise in response.
