Spider-Men II Brings Answers To Miles Morales Mystery!

Marvel is finally making good on its tease from five years ago. Five years, in comic book terms that’s not the craziest amount of time to wait for a payoff. Spider-Men II #1 is fixing to answer the question from its previous series: Who is the Miles Morales of the Marvel Universe? Brian Michael Bendis is back helming this sequel bringing together the Spider-Men you know and love.

In 2012, Marvel did what they’d sworn to never do: crafted a crossover featuring characters from the Ultimate and 616 worlds. The Peter Parker, Amazing Spider-Man merry Marvelers have been reading since the swinging sixties journeyed to a world where he’d been killed. His replacement in the Ultimate Universe? Miles Morales. A kid with powers and the Spider-Man mantle who was in need of some guidance from Peter. They had a heck of a time. Fans and critics raved over the event. At the end of Spider-Men, Peter came home and looked up Miles in his world. The reaction on his face has taunted Spidey fans for five years. Now, with Miles Morales of the Ultimate Universe permanently calling the post-Secret Wars Marvel Universe home, we will learn what shocked Peter Parker. And, according to solicits, “…that’s just the tip of the iceberg.”

Bendis will be joined again by Sara Pichelli. This team has helmed some of Miles’ greatest adventures to date. The fan-favorite neighborhood Spider-Man is going to team up with Peter once again for what should be a gorgeous looking journey.

This sequel was a certainty. Hence, Spider-Men II. With the first storied team-up taking place in the Ultimate Universe it only made sense this follow up would take place in Peter’s homeworld. The question we’re going to have to weigh is, “Has it been worth the wait?” The Marvel Universe is a very different place. Miles and Peter’s relationship has been completely overhauled. Will Spider-Men II be able to do what Marvel has struggled with its events of recent years: Deliver!

Ten-tinnabulations

Things happen fast in the world of comics, and we fans are fickle friends to the trends. Before we can blink, the San Diego Comic Con is upon us, as is the much ballyhooed “Before Watchmen.” Many who said “Avengers” was the best movie of all time can now only think about “The Dark Knight Rises” on July 20th.

Meanwhile, some of the biggest stories of this year, that of DC’s New 52 and Marvel’s Avengers Vs. X-Men are nearing completion. Who’s going to remember them in the wake of this week’s big SDCC announcements?

TEN OUT OF TEN

Let us take a pause and breath in the current, the happening and the now. MANY big books are celebrating breaking double digits this week. Dark Horses controversial bad girl Buffy has her latest milestone with Buffy Season 9 #10, and many of the DC books do the same.

Batman #10, Batgirl #10, and Deathstroke #10 all have a number ten this week. The Deathstroke title seems particularly fun as Rob Liefeld will pit Sir Strokes-a-lot up against that intergalactic bastich, Lobo. In this fight there will be no good guys, only carnage!

Green Lantern and Grifter both get #10s, as well.

And they’re not the only ones! Image has Invincible #10 (well, #92 actually) and Marvel has Powers #11 (Missed it by THAT much) plus The Amazing Spider-Man #687 (Which is 10×68.7, so that sort of counts).

I’m looking forward to Spidey #10×68.7. Spidey is going to fight the Avengers, of whom he’s currently a member, and with whom he is currently fighting the X-men across the country (Specifically in the pages of this week’s AvX Vs #3). He does get around, that guy…speaking of which Continue reading
