There are countless callbacks to comic continuity in Miles Morales's cinematic debut, but arguably one of the greatest Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse references of all came in the post-credits scene. This bit involves Miguel O'Hara, AKA the Spider-Man of 2099, visiting the world of the classic '60s animated Spider-Man series.
Any fan of the Marvel 2099 imprint - or Marvel Comics' modern Spider-Verse crossovers - were no doubt stoked for Spider-Man 2099's appearance, but casual audience members probably exited the theater wondering, "Who is Miguel O'Hara, and why is everyone so excited about him?"
The answer is complicated, but suffice it to say that he's one of the best alternate Spider-People ever who wears one of the greatest alternate Spidey costumes out there. He's also far more than merely an Into the Spider-Verse Easter egg, to which his decades of comic book history can attest.
