About

Kilometers Morales refers to a series of memes featuring Miles Morales Name Puns in which the Spider-Man spin-off character Miles Morales has his name reimagined as different measurements of distance used around the world, due to his first name being a homophone for the measurement “miles.” The most widespread variant of these puns is Kilometers Morales, who’s viewed in memes as the European counterpart to the American version, but others have been created with more outlandish nicknames since they appeared and spread across several sites and platforms from 2018 to 2020.

Origin

Although the exact first use of Kilometers Morales is unknown, it appears online as early as 2018. One such example was posted to 9GAG[1] on January 24th, 2018, under the title “1.60934 kilometers to be exact.” The meme received 39 points and four comments in just under three years (shown below).
