Spider-Men Comic Coming Again

“In 2012, the Ultimate Universe and Marveliverse collided with the meeting of Miles Morales and Peter Parker in “Spider-Men,” written by Brian Michael Bendis with art by Sara Pichelli. The series left off just as Peter Parker began researching Miles Morales online in the 616. Today, via his personal Twitter account, Bendis confirmed that a “Spider-Men 2” is planned, answering the question “Are we going to see a spidermen 2 series?” with “Yes.”

“While Bendis didn’t specify when or how a follow-up series would take place, a “Spider-Men 2” isn’t a stretch to imagine occurring as the 2012 series enjoyed both solid sales numbers and critical acclaim. Every installment of the five-issue limited series ranked no less than 4.5 stars by the CBR Reviews Team. The original “Spider-Men” was part of the 50th Anniversary celebration for Spider-Man and was Bendis’ first full-on Spider-Man adventure in the Marvel U.”

“Marvel Comics representatives declined comment when contacted by CBR.”

Well now we know it will happen in the new Marvel’s Generations. It has been revealed as an expansive crossover of 10 characters/titles this summer pairing classic heroes with younger characters who have taken up their names. That includes The Spiders comic. Bendis commented: “The spiritual connection between Peter and Miles is so fascinating because they are so different. They have different temperaments, different motivations, different upbringings, but their connection allows writers like myself to delve into the core principle of Spider-Man ‘with great power, must come great responsibility’ and examine it from a completely different perspective.”

Spider-Man legacy pairing, says their is “fascinating potential” in this. So we will see them together again as part of the 10-Way Crossover Event late Summer and fall. Be there with Comics Talk as we comment on this series and other events at Marvel and the comic world. 🙂 Walt
