A problem eight years in the making has finally arrived: Marvel now has two competing, nearly identical, and yet completely unrelated Prowlers kicking around New York City. It’s a weird problem, and I think Marvel has come up with a simple fix. Being one of the internet’s foremost Prowler fans, I felt compelled to point this out to everybody.
Marvel has offered various workarounds for awhile, but based on the current storyline in Miles Morales: Spider-Man, they’re apparently just going to barrel on through.
Miles’ uncle, Aaron Davis, is once again calling himself the Prowler.
Even though the original Prowler, Hobie Brown, is still around and working with Spider-Man.
Apparently that purple and green look is too good to pass up! These two images came from two different comics released the exact same day back in August. It was the most Prowler-heavy week in comics in years.
This is what happens when you crash universes together. It’s not a safe practice for anybody.
So how did we get here and where do we go from here? I’m glad you asked! Join me after the jump for A Tale of Two Prowlers.
