COMICS: The "Mysterious" Villain Of SPIDER-MEN Revealed

So, how do Peter Parker and Miles Morales end up coming face-to-face? Brian Michael Bendis reveals that Mysterio will cause the rift which result in the two Spider-Men meeting up and also teases some very intriguing new details about the series.

Spider-Men Exclusive Sneak Peek

It has been revealed via USA Today that Mysterio is the villain who will discover a rift between the 616 and Ultimate Universe, resulting in Peter Parker and Miles Morales meeting for the first time. According to writer Brian Michael Bendis, the classic baddie has been travelling between universes for a while now and it's also hinted that these two may not be the only heroes who end up visiting the alternate realities. "Mysterio is up there with the most dangerous criminals that Spider-Man has come up against," says Bendis. "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."

"Now we're in Christmas Carol territory," he adds when asked about Peter Parker meeting the likes of Aunt May and Gwen Stacy. "If done right, this is an emotional and powerful Spider-Man story that we haven't seen before. The real meat of the story is (Peter) meeting Aunt May and Gwen and MJ and discovering this world and what it means to him. You can't walk away from an interaction like that without being changed, and Miles being witness to it all is the best lesson he can learn." The two Spider-Men will also team-up with The Ultimates.

Mysterio? Seems like something Shattered Dimensonish.
OdinsBeard - 4/27/2012, 11:41 AM
Good! Mysterio should get a bit of an upgrade. He should be almost on par with Dr strange
Grimfoe - 4/27/2012, 11:44 AM
So Miles Morales has been in comics for 5 minutes and we already need a crossover? That's a very DC move for Marvel, don't you think?
gac - 4/27/2012, 11:45 AM
Hammerhead maybe?
MJPETTY7 - 4/27/2012, 11:48 AM
@Grimfoe Nope, it's a Marvel move.

This is gonna be good, I cant wait!

That's Peter Parker, he's kind of like a white Miles Morales, not really an important character so I'm not surprised you never heard of him.
GreendaleHumanBeing - 4/27/2012, 12:11 PM
Hipster Spider-man Fan: I heard about Peter Parker before he helped Miles Morales
Seejay - 4/27/2012, 12:14 PM

Well, two Spiderman's must be given a pretty impressive villain I guess.
BlindLemonShemp - 4/27/2012, 12:21 PM
damn... i hate it when comics add in honkeys to share the spotlight with an original mixed race character...
stop pandering to the kkk, marvel... nobody wants a white spiderman... thats just preposterous
Rhys - 4/27/2012, 12:22 PM
Mysterio is the worst Spider-Man villain that exists.
TrueBlue - 4/27/2012, 12:28 PM
I think the Green Goblin lost his hot pants...

Fed up with these overly PC people bringing in their white characters, they have no place in comics! Whatever next a white Nick Fury!!
TrueBlue - 4/27/2012, 12:45 PM
What are you talking about? White people have been under represented in comics for way too long.

White is beautiful, Baby.
mrHJK - 4/27/2012, 12:46 PM
As a fan and collector of USM, this should not happen (at least not now).. After 10 years, Ult. Peter wouldn't have been ready for something like this (crossing dimensions and such doesn't happen everyday in the Ult.U).. So Morales, who just became Spider-Man yesterday is no ready for something like this.
I like that Mysertio is being used (Ult. version was a boss), but they literally took that idea from Spider-Man: Shattered Dimensions... Come on Bendis.
mrHJK - 4/27/2012, 12:48 PM
Not to mention, Miles is like 13/14.. Peter is like 30-35, right? How weird.
DanteSparda - 4/27/2012, 12:52 PM
Mysterio? That really sucks, it would be awesome that the villain would be the Spider-man of yet another dimension, an evil one of course, someone like him:

elessarundomiel2382 - 4/27/2012, 12:54 PM
@teabag im assuming its hammerhead
Killscreen - 4/27/2012, 1:00 PM
I'm not saying white characters are unrepresented, I just wish they would create new original white characters instead of rehashing classic characters like Miles Morales with a different skin tone.
Look at original characters like white panther and white lightning that's how it should be done!
sinchsw - 4/27/2012, 1:12 PM
Could someone fill me in on why Mysterio is back. Last I knew he killed himself in Daredevil about 8 years ago or so. WTF. Yeah, yeah, I can't afford to read as much as you.
TrueBlue - 4/27/2012, 1:38 PM

He faked his death. He came back a while ago,but I forgot most of the details honestly. It's kinda sketchy.
sinchsw - 4/27/2012, 1:42 PM

@Owlman - if you're referring to Ultimate Peter, he is still dead. This is 616 Peter interacting with the Ultimate Universe.
Darkhaven - 4/27/2012, 3:56 PM
...this thread.
repulse93 - 4/27/2012, 4:31 PM
And now it all makes sense...

THIS is what Ultimate Mysterio was preparing for!
maskman0 - 4/27/2012, 9:32 PM
So....Avengers vs. Ultimate Avengers next year?
GLprime2814 - 4/28/2012, 9:27 AM
@odinsbeard, you think that the sorcerer supreme should be in par with a guy who wears a fishbowl and uses SFX? It's like saying batman should be in par with Dr. Fate.

And is this like the shattered dimensions where mysterio steals some sort of magic shard and wants to wreck havoc in 4 dimensions but gets his ass handed to him by 4 different spidermen?
I hope not cuz that game was kinda crap.
GLprime2814 - 4/28/2012, 9:34 AM
Or is this going to lead to the amalgamation of ultimate and 616 since all the movies cartoons seem to be a mix of both, sucks cuz the reason I loved the ultimate line when it came out was that marvel said they wer never going to do this.
Guess they figured it's been so long now that no one will remember that statement.

I do want to see Gwen and may meet a grown up PP.
