Miles' lightning 'Kamehameha Wave' attack leaves the Dragon Ball fandom awestruck

Miles Morales possesses a range of unique abilities due to his genetically enhanced spider powers. Alongside his agility, strength, and web-slinging capabilities, the Marvel superhero has the power to generate and manipulate electric charges. This ability allows him to stun enemies and even unleash a powerful electric burst known as the Venom Strike.

In the recent Spider-Man 2 trailer, Miles is seen confronting Dr. Connors in his Lizard form, engaging in combat with Craven the Hunter's goons. It's during this intense battle that Miles displays a move that closely resembles Goku's famous Kamehameha technique.

As it happens, fans of the legendary Saiyan were quick to notice the uncanny similarity between Miles' lightning-based attack and the Kamehameha that Goku and many of the Z fighters use. Social media platforms thus erupted with excitement as fans discussed the connection between these two beloved characters.

While some enthusiasts viewed it as a reference to Dragon Ball, others speculated that it might be a coincidence as the iconic attack stance is used widely in anime, Western cartoons, and comics.

Regardless, fans' enthusiasm remained high, with many excited about the possibility of a nod to Goku and the series within the Spider-Man game.

The future of Dragon Ball franchise

While Marvel's Spider-Man 2 game is set to release later this year, the future of Dragon Ball remains uncertain. Toei Animation has yet to provide any official news regarding the next potential entry in the franchise.

Currently, the manga is captivating fans with its Granolah the Survivor arc, which will introduce a new character named Granolah, who seeks revenge against Frieza for the destruction of his home planet. The Z warriors will now attempt to prevent Granolah from becoming too powerful and losing control of his newfound strength.

While the anime's future is unclear, the manga continues to captivate fans with its thrilling storyline, leaving them hopeful for more Dragon Ball content in the near future.
