It was guessed pretty much as soon as it was announced, but Marvel has been teasing Brian Michael Bendis and Sara Pichelli's Spider-Men as if it was some kind of big secret. Now, however, they've given that up,and officially revealed that the project is a crossover between the 616 and the Ultimate Marvel Universes, allowing Peter Parker to meet Miles Morales.



The five-issue series will start in June, featuring Peter finding himself in the Ultimate Comics universe, where he died as a teenager and Miles has taken up the mantle of Spider-Man. The resulting adventure will "reveal a startling truth about a key player in the Spider-Man mythos." Oh, boy. Let's hope it's not on the level of the Gwen Stacy Goblin Kids.

“This year is the 50th anniversary of Spider-Man and we’re so happy that the stars aligned for us to tell a Spider-Man story that nobody has ever seen before,” said Bendis. “It’s an honor and a privilege to present both this story and these characters to fans on such an auspicious occasion. The work Sara has done on Spider-Men is a step above the already high standard that she has set for herself on our Ultimate Comics Spider-Man series. For me, this is a celebration of the best character in mainstream comics and some of the best art mainstream comics has to offer.”

"Knowing how much Brian loves and respects Spider-Man, there’s no way I wouldn’t want to work on Spider-Men with him,” said Pichelli. “It’s going to be an explosive celebration of Spider-Man’s 50th anniversary—are you ready?”
