I think the problem he's getting at is that it's confusing, pointless and a little bizarre to have multiple characters using the same alias simultaneously. It made sense when Miles was still in the Ultimate universe and Peter was presumed dead there, but now he's just this odd in-universe copycat superhero, it's really strange. As long as Peter is around, Miles can't really be Spider-Man, just """be Spider-Man""".

... And then you look at how ASM keeps sticking to the top 20 in the sales charts, how it's often been puglished 2 or 3 times per month, the various sidebooks featuring him, the various alternate universe takes on him, one of his movies being the 25th highest grossing movie of all time, etc...
... And Miles' one book is basically being kept alive through tricking speculators into buying it by renumbering it over and over again.

If Peter Parker is one of the most popular superheroes of all time, then Miles Morales is (pardon the phrasing) the most parasitic spin-off superhero of all time.
