Marvel Comics and Spider-Man Spoilers follow with September 2017 Solicitations Spoilers and July 2017 Preview.
We know that Marvel Comics is giving us Generations as a mid-Secret Empire event, with several one-shots of modern day and classic Marvel heroes, that includes Generations: Spiders #1. That one-shot reveals that the Silver Age teenager Peter Parker as Spider-Men somehow traveling to modern day and interacting with the modern-day Spider-Man of Miles Morales originally from the Ultimate Universe. Marvel says this not a hoax, but real. That launches in September 2017.
On top of that, we have the sequel to Spider-Men in a Spider-Men II mini-series. That book features the modern era Amazing Spider-Man who is an adult Peter Parker interacting with a teenager Miles Morales as Spider-Man, originally from the Ultimate Universe, looking for the Marvel Universe’s Miles Morales. The 5 issues mini-series kicks off with Spider-Men II #1 in July 2017.
As Marvel Comics heads into the post Generations and post Secret Empire era of Marvel Legacy we seem to still have 2 Spider-Men as well as 2 Peter Parker and 2 Miles Morales in the main Marvel Earth.
Should be interesting!
Below is Marvel Comics’ news release concerning Spider-Men II which includes teaser / preview art.
THIS IS IT, TRUE BELIEVERS! The moment five years in the making is finally here! The first time Peter Parker and Miles Morales met ended with a question — WHO IS THE MILES MORALES OF THE MARVEL UNIVERSE?! Now that the Miles you know and love is with Peter in the Marvel Universe, you’re finally going to get that answer to who the OTHER Miles Morales is! And that’s just the tip of the iceberg as Brian Michael Bendis (Defenders, Spider-Man) and Sara Pichelli (Spider-Man) bring you the next heart-stopping adventure for both Peter Parker and Miles Morales with Marvel Comics’ SPIDER-MEN II!
Speaking with Marvel.com, Bendis spoke towards Peter and Miles both holding onto the Spider-Man title in the Marvel Universe, “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, 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.”
