Theorists, we are here to talk about the ending of Spider-Man: Miles Morales. That is your warning. You see, at the end of the game Miles absorbs the giant blast meant to destroy his city and released it high above the skyline in order to keep people from being hurt. Well Miles, there is a slight problem with your solution. Miles, I am sorry to tell you that you did NOT save the city. Why? Watch to find out!

    Well no Miles does nothing wrong and if the tinkler fault halem wouldnt have been vapourised

  • KptnLinus

    Isn't it not an explosion but an electrical discharge? I thought this meant the "explosion" at the end is more a spherical lightning strike and not an atomic blast

  • xxPIXELANDxx

    The clothes change into invisible because his clothes aren't normal. There is something in miles and peters clothes which can make there powers work on them also considering both as great in science and engineering

    Not to be THAT guy but miles could have still absorbed all the energy, released enough "not all" of it, for him not to die but still saving Harlem. Also him releasing all that energy would not have been like a nuke/bomb/explosion it would have probably been more similar to a giant Tesla coil ionizing the surrounding air with electricity.

    I mean... With some comic book logic miles isn't like packing it over a steel basically designed to detonate it but maybe he just absorbed it?

  • James Clapham

    I enjoy these hypothetical scenarios as much as the next guy, however... could we get a follow up with the in-game scale of the blast in proportion to the affected-area? I'd like to see the "game-canon" result.

  • Spencer Irish

    to be fair, it wasn't an explosion, it was an electrical discharge since he converted the energy in his body, it would damage the surrounding blocks with the lightning bolts you talked about but not explode.

  • Shelley Hite

    How many lightning strikes would it take for it to kill miles?

  • Lim Joyce

    Not sure if anyone else commented but is there any possibility that Miles stored some of the energy? It looks like he was also still discharging some on the way down, albeit less, so maybe he DID save harlem by not discharging the entire blast?

    So your basically saying.... HES A MENACE!

    Well, this is just my theory. But, you can compare 2 different energy sources as one. And nuclear damage I would say would be more damaging than electrical damage (which I guessed it was because of the look of the explosion).

    Its clear that miles can direct and focus the direction of his venom so he if he directed the blast upward it would have prevented lots of damage

    The way I understood it was that the explosion was an electric discharge instead of neutrons in an atomic bomb. Shouldn't it have been an EMP

  • MrMovieMaker116

    In the video game's defense, Krieger is a liar so the 500 year claim might be BS. The energy he soaked up might have been substantially less.

    But he absorb the energy not the explodium itself. Wouldn't that mean his discharge he did was 100% electrical especially since its proven miles himself didn't explode since hes alive at the end of the game? I never played the game myself but base off your video It should be said miles may not be able to hold the power but when he over powers he still has some control right? Btw I am not trying to debunk your theory just for the funs of it. I am just curious to see the true answer. But you can always ignore me and say miles killed everybody. It's just a series a question. A "Domas" Question.

  • Aohaku

    To address your clothes being invisible gripe, I believe Miles's invisibility functions by bending light around him. Comic Peter Parker clings to walls by manipulating bioelectricity as well, and that passes through clothing. Miles's electrical shocks and invisibility are just an extension of that power. If the field passes through, you must call it true.

    You have to assume the electricity is way weaker despite the discharge shown after Miles emits it. I mean we're literally watching him used a lightning first that just kind of temporarily stuns guys people, with them still good enough to fight back

    Your assuming: 1. The energy he absorbs is still in the form of nuclear energy. 2. he absorbs all the energy. Nether of these assumptions are necessarily true. 1. Nuform is defiantly radioactive, however Spiderman's energy is stored biochemically, and released as burst of electricity. He absorbs the nuclear energy, transferring it to biochemical energy, then releasing it as a burst of lightning. (i.e. no concussive blast damage) 2. He also doesn't need to absorb all the energy, only enough to stop the nuclear reaction. He managed to absorb the energy before the reactor exploded, hence most of the energy in the nuform was not released.

    Not necessarily because he could have an extremely high capacity which could be just before the capacity of the and rather than discharging everything just discharging to his max capacity

    This is in current the exploration would not destroy all of Harlem because the shock wave is an energy wave that would dissipate in the air because it’s such a good insulator so there’d be no shock wave like with a bomb, there’d be a sonic boom that would shock all of the city but it wouldn’t destroy it, it would most likely just shatter every window in the north east and send everything in a 100 mi radius flying but only like 75% of the city would be destroyed so still very similar to mat pats theory. But that’s just a guess a really bad guess thanks for reading
