Updated with a correction: June 9, 2023 – Miles Morales is 15 years old in Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse. Gwen Stacy’s age is not stated, however, she is 15 months older than him, so she is either 16 or 17 in the sequel.

Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse is now in theaters and a wild adventure for Miles Morales. But a question remains in how much of a “man” Miles may be in terms of his age. Just how old is he really?

Marvel fans have long become used to what’s been nicknamed “Marvel time” in terms of the comics. While the current Marvel Universe began in 1961, writers have long had to “flex” the timeline as the decades have passed. Some characters are tied to specific periods. For example, Captain America fought in World War II but spent decades frozen in ice to explain his youth. Magneto was a Holocaust survivor and still looks younger, thanks to various rejuvenations.

The unofficial rule is that whatever the current year is, it’s been about 15 years since the Fantastic Four took their rocket flight that kicked off this age of heroes. This means that Peter Parker has gone from a high schooler to just over thirty years old, although some writers can argue that.

With Miles Morales, he was established as thirteen years old when he debuted as a new Spider-Man. Thus, thanks to the quirky timeline, he appears to be about 17 or so and still handling high school. The PS5 video game states he’s 17, and that can be played on in various media.

How old is Miles in Across the Spider-Verse?

Miles’ exact age is never stated in Into the Spider-Verse, with speculation he could be 14 or 15 years old. As Across the Spider-Verse seems to take place a bit over a year later than the previous film, Miles is likely close to 17 years old. That seems to make him a bit younger than Gwen Stacy, who appears to be college-age.

That still makes him pretty young, although notably how he’s actually younger than Peter Parker was when he began his web-slinging career. It’s still intriguing how Miles has to handle the usual teenage problems alongside his super-heroics and how this Spider-Man is, in many ways, still just a kid.
