Originally teased back on Easter weekend, the crew at the House of Ideas has officially revealed the first look at Spider-Men 2, a five-issue limited series that sees Peter Parker and Miles Morales team-up to find the latter’s Marvel Universe doppelganger.
The first time the two web-slingers met — in the first Spider-Men limited series — the biggest question that remained was the identity of Miles’ Earth-616 doppelganger, a question Marvel promises will be answered during the events of the new series.
Slated to hit the shelves of comic stores across the world on July 12, the series will run for five issues from the same team of creators that brought us the first series — writer Brian Michael Bendis and artist Sara Pichelli.
“One of my favorite things about a shared universe, is that on top of what you’re writing for the characters, other things are happening to the characters, like now Miles is in the new universe, and now he’s a part of the Champions, and half of [Civil War II] was people fighting over his head,” Bendis told Marvel.com. “So, things have changed in his life, and his relationship to the Marvel Universe is completely different than it was in the first series and that’s exciting.”
When Peter and Miles first met in Spider-Men, that was a time where multiple universes existed within the Marvel Comics multiverse. Thanks to the events of Secret Wars, all universes combined to exist in one universe, making this second team-up that much easier to explain.
