This summer, amongst the 400 other big event series that Marvel is running, the company will for the first time crossover the two main universes. Spider-Men will feature the team up of 616 Peter Parker and Ultimate universe Miles Morales. All of this is part of Spidey’s 50th anniversary. The question is: Who’s the bad guy that these two will be teaming up against.
Wait for it…
Yes, the 616 universe special effects asshole who’s been a pain in regular Spidey’s ass for years.
Writer Brian Michael Bendis told USA Today the details:
Bendis says fans who have been following Ultimate comics religiously will enjoy the Mysterio reveal. The villain has been making trouble in that universe for a while, traveling incognito to and from the regular universe.
“Mysterio is up there with the most dangerous criminals that Spider-Man has come up against,” Bendis says. “When I was a kid, I found some of his stories to be terrifying. It just got so personal. When he does his thing right, he delves in and gets deep into a psyche that doesn’t deserve that kind of punishment.”sition in the book.
So it’s looking like Marvel might have something bigger up their sleeve with potentially crossing over the Ultimate and 616 universe in the future.
