After seeing them in the Young Justice cartoon and learning about them in the comics, I really wish the old Teen Titans had Bumblebee and Mal Duncan The Herald be a couple like they are in the comics. Bumblebee and Mal are one of the longest lasting Titan couples after Starfire and Nightwing. They are heavily connect to each other since they became superheroes because of each other. They are really important to each other. If they could have Starfire and Robin be a couple in the show than they could’ve had Bumblebee and Mal be a couple in the show too. Even though they’ve been a couple for a long time nobody cares about as a couple. The old Teen Titans could’ve made people care about them as a couple but no they had to pair Bumblebee up with Cyborg. They never became canon in the show but it always felt like they trying to force Cyborg to be with Bumblebee when he really should’ve been with Jinx. It’s BumbleMal not Cybee. The Young Justice cartoon made people care but only a few people. Karen and Mal are a good couple and it sucks that no one knows that they suppose to be together or care about them together. They recently had a kid together. They’re a cool super family. Their main ship name should be BumbleMal since Mal isn’t always the Guardian. He has different superhero names like The Herald but in the Young Justice cartoon it should be Guardianbee. Bumblebee and Mal Duncan should’ve been a couple in the old Teen Titans cartoon.
I think the most disappointing thing about Miles Morales as a character is that he’s been designed by writers who aren’t interested in telling stories with him independently of other superheroes.
Marvel can tell countless stories with Peter Parker wherein he needs no guest Spider-Men or other Superhero teams to prop up his narratives. But Miles is completely tied up in superhero team and Peter Parker-related plots, that he’s simply been a reactionary party to the world of Peter Parker and team ups in both the 1610 and 616 universes.
He has very little to call his own beyond his parents (Rio and Jefferson), his friends (Ganke and Judge), and two original villain characters (Aaron Davis, Maximus Gargan), comics wise. I wish they approached Miles like DC Comics decided to approach Dick Grayson’s Nightwing title, or even the YA novel that came out for him this year.
Miles can’t even have a film to call his own. Into the Spiderverse is also advertisement for Peter Parker and other Spider-Man characters (Gwen, Ham, Noir, etc.). Peter Parker? He has five films under his belt that are completely about him and his life. Miles? Marvel just won’t let him fly solo in the comics.
