In the fourth and final issue of What If…?, Miles lives in a neighborhood surrounded by dark-skinned people, something that has disappointed some readers who have seen it as a cliché.according to what was reported on the website of culture leisure.
The following is the cover of the comic. Honestly, Miles Morales looks great as Thor.
