Miles returns post cataclysm, to don the webs and defend Ultimate NYC.
This May, the character that took the world by storm returns for a brand-new series in MILES MORALES: ULTIMATE SPIDER-MAN #1. Legendary writer Brian Michael Bendis and New York Times Bestselling artist David Marquez are back for “Revival” – one of the biggest Spider-Man stories of the year!
Miles is back in action with a new status quo and a brand new outlook. But his new lease on life is short lived, as one of Peter Parker’s greatest foes returns to the fold, ready to leave New York City a smoldering ruin! S.H.I.E.L.D. is no more – and it’s up to Miles to take down one of the most dangerous foes in the entire Ultimate Universe!
And Miles will come face to face with Peter Parker’s legacy in a way you’ve never seen before – with a last page so shocking that EVERYONE will be talking!
“Spider-Man’s greatest enemy will haunt Miles Morales,” says editor Mark Paniccia, “and in more ways than one. This is going to break all kinds of molds. Readers are going to flip.”
“The reaction to Miles is one of the great joys of my life and career. I am so excited to join David [Marquez] and Justin [Ponsor] for the next and the new,” says series writer Brian Michael Bendis. “I am going to have to unplug my computer when this issue ships…”
As Miles new journey begins, he’ll go head-to-head with one of the greatest Spidey villains in history, not to mention a last page that will have USM fans screaming! You do not want to miss one of the biggest issues of the year when MILES MORALES: ULTIMATE SPIDER-MAN #1 explodes into comic shops this May!
I have to say this for Marvel, the Ultimate Universe is radically different than it was before Galactus and the Cataclysm event. That might sound like an obvious statement, but in the world of comics, it’s a pretty big deal. Massive events pass regularly in the ‘standard’ Marvel U after all, and little changes for good… most of the time anyway.
Even with all the ‘new’ going around though, Miles Morales as Spidey is one thing that’s stayed the same. Fans have taken to Morales as the Ultimate web-head pretty well after all and they’re probably more than happy to see that he’s back in action in his own book.
Of course, he’s not alone in that new book as Marvel has hinted at some major villain who’s on the hunt for him. They also hint at the fact that there’s something else going on with that villain than you might be used to. At the very least, it should be interesting.
Ultimate Spider-Man #1 ushers in a new era for the Ultimate Spider-Man when it arrives from the team of Brian Michael Bendis and Dave Marquez on May 7th.
