Marvel Slowly Reveals Details on June's 'Spider-Men' Event

Who will the "Spider-Men" be?

We've been hearing about the upcoming SPIDER-MEN series. It's not 100% clear if this is a new series or a miniseries. We've seen a shadowy teaser earlier this month along with the creative team. Today, Marvel is beginning to reveal who is behind those shadows.

Looks like good old Spider-Man to me. No real surprise there. Being more specific, it looks like 616 Spidey. But who is the other one? Many suspect it's Miles Morales. Chances are Ultimate Peter Parker will not be returning from the dead just yet (if ever). If it is Miles, could he somehow be crossing over into the 616 universe? Or could this be Kaine in his Scarlet Spider costume? Because it's Bendis and Pichelli, it seems more like it'd be something in the Ultimate universe. Unless I've somehow completely missed a previous announcement.

What are your thoughts?

This June - history will be made for the Marvel Universe.

SPIDER-MEN #1 (APR120603)

Just what Marvel needs; a cross-over between universes...

I suspect if anyone buys this, it'll only be for the first one or two issues like that Astonishing Spider-Man and Wolverine series.

I have no Idea, it seems very mysterious! I am sure it will be interesting but if it is Miles I wont read it, if its some clone thing again, I probably wont read it. I want something new...what if that crazy suit of his came to life...Spiderman made his own Ultron? Does that even seem like a possibility?

I have a bad feeling about this.....

It's a 616/Ultimate crossover, the same way Pete met Spidey 2099 a while back

Posted by MinkoAk

I don't see why he'd be 616, it looks like any classic Spider-Man from any universe... Maybe the one from the Animated Ultimate Spider-Man ?

Shot in the dark:Miles meets Ben Reilly

Posted by feargalr

I hope its Miles, him living up the ultimate peter parker has been a thing for him, this would help him with that.

Kaine?

God I hope not. I don't want Bendis anywhere near Ben Reilly.

Posted by Duo_forbidden

I'm hoping this stays in the Ultimate Universe, but given how that Spider-Man looks like 616, it might be a crossover. Still, I'm quite interested in this.

Posted by zombietag

if its bendis/pichelli but not ultimate that would be really really weird and a let down.

stoked about this.

I really wanna know who the other guy is. I want it to be Miles. If its Reilly and Kaine or I'd be disappointed because Peter has interacted with them soo many times before.

Posted by Deranged Midget

God no... Bendis stick to the Ultimate Universe please! i prefer Dan Slott writing my 616 Spidey.

I hope this is like that Super-Men event... maybe with a "Spider-Boy", "Arachnid", blah, blah, blah.

Make it 616, Peter and Miles for the lulz.

Not keen on Bendis at all since Siege.

Posted by disposablepal

i think the idea of 616 and Ultimate Spidey's teaming up would be great. It would help Miles understand what greatness Ultimate Peter Parker could have achieved if he lived past 16, and give him a living Spider-Man to look up to, even if it is a mini series. Either way i'm stoked to have Pichelli's art back, i loved her run on Ultimate Spider-Man

Posted by Lvenger

It's gonna be Miles. Now that they've revealed 616 Spidey, the other one's bound to be Miles. Does this mark the first crossover between the 616 and Ultimate Marvel universes?

Posted by Jonny_Anonymous

Sceptical but we'll see

Posted by Novaar

Looks like Miles from the bendy shape he's pulling!

Posted by pspin

Instead of Miles or Ultimate Peter going to 616, what if 616 Peter goes to the Ultimate Universe. Since 9 out of 10 characters there are nearly unrecognizable from their 616 counterparts (for better or worse) that would definitely throw Peter for a loop

Posted by mewmdude77

It's definitely Miles. The shape is too small in build to be Kaine, since Kaine is larger than 616 Peter. I really hope it's not Ultimate Peter, cause so far, death in the Ultimate Universe is a stable thing. Much more than in 616. This would be very good for Miles, cause it could mature him a little, if he saw Peter past 16, and how much good he's done, plus, he'll get the Power and responsibility speech, and thtat'll get him to use his powers more responsibly

Posted by GothamRed

good god, one of the spider-men is spider-man, who would have seen this coming?

Posted by Captain13

Not a cross over. Just an older 616 Miles. Just watch.

The other one is gonna be Miles.

Posted by haydenclaireheroes

I am actually excited for thus story. I wonder when they will reveal who the other Spider-man is. My guess it is Miles Morales

Posted by (((Prodigy)))

I've been waiting a long time to see if the 616 and Ult universes are ever going to have a crossover...

Posted by chroinkero

I would definitely be excited if it was Miles. Hopefully no more clones or Ben Reilly coming back. Also it doesn't look like it could be Kaine. I would probably be happier with this being a mini-series than a full-fledged series.

Posted by Mucklefluga

I bet the other black shadow will be revealed as an identical spidey suit to the other one so we're all like wtf?!?

Posted by The Impersonator

I'm thinking Kaine. It has to be.

She's back on USM

Posted by Kallarkz

I just don't see that being Kaine...they drew Peter good...but for that to be Kaine he would have had to lose so many pounds of muscle.

Posted by zackattack529

wow from the looks of this..i can already tell no one will be pleased no matter who the mysterious shadow figure is haha VVVVVVVVVVVVVV

Posted by Peregrine

It would be really cool if was the 616 version of Miles (and if he was wearing the mangaverse Spider-man costume that would just be the icing on the cake)

Posted by RedheadedAtrocitus

Has to be Miles if its Bendis at the helm. Otherwise I'm gonna put my money on Kaine. Good stuff!

Le sigh.

... Do you know that Ultimate Ben Reilly is an afroamerican scientist that started the Clone Saga in the universe 1610 aka Ultimate Universe? don't answer this post, just reading your comments I know that you don't read the Ultimate universe.

Edited by TheGreyOutcastX

@Deadcool: I know who Ultimate Ben Riley is. I read Ultimate Spider-Man. But that is looking like a 616 Spidey so for all we know, it could be Marvel trolling us by making us think the shadow is Miles and then bam, it's one of Peter's clones back from the dead....which isn't past Marvel or Bendis to do.

Maybe because Pichelli's art style is different to Mark Bagley's, so her Ultimate Peter Parker looks like 616 Parker, and also there is just one Clone left that didn't died during the Clone Saga...

@Deadcool: So long as this sticks to the Ultimate Universe. I can't shallow his writing in the 616.

Its been already stated that the Ultimate Universe and the 616 universe would never mix, why people think this is a crossover between universes?

Posted by TheGreyOutcastX

Cause of the Amazing Spider-man movie.

Posted by CrimsonTempest

This would actually mean something if it was Bendis and Slott writing their respective Spider-Men.

Posted by DATNIGGA

Ultimate & 616 cross over? wow lol... i dont think it will be that good but then again i never really liked miles

Posted by ravisher

Am I the only one who would prefer it be like Shattered Dimensions and have Spider-man 2099, 616, Noir, and Ultimate team up. Also SpiderHam.
