|Miles Morales's father Jefferson. He was a petty thief as a youth and never aged out of his criminal days, growing up to become a master criminal codenamed the Prowler. Even so, he was close to his nephew, Miles, until Miles discovered his secret. See individual character page for further details.|
Miles Morales is the only son of Jefferson and Río Morales, themselves the children of Afro-Puerto Rican immigrants to Spanish Harlem. Jefferson and his brother Aaron were little hellions as children and ran with gangs as they entered their teenage years. They met when they were 18 and Jefferson was still dealing drugs. During their courtship, she encouraged him to leave that world, and though it was a difficult venture, he ultimately did abandon dealing. They married as soon as Río graduated college and had Miles not much later. They adore their son and have dedicated themselves to making sure that Miles doesn’t follow Jefferson’s (or worse, Uncle Aaron’s) path. They moved out of Spanish Harlem and into Brooklyn shortly after Miles’ birth. The Morales family was not particularly well off, but they were never wanting, and Jefferson and Río indulged Miles whenever they could.
Jefferson is a construction foreman and Río is a hospital administrator. They don’t know that their son is Spider-Man or even a mutant; Río might come to accept it if she found out, but Jefferson has been clear about his anti-mutant prejudices and his distaste for superheroes and vigilantes.
