Earlier today, it was revealed that Peter Parker and Miles Morales will meet in the first ever crossover between Marvel's two alternate realities. For full details on the storyline, click HERE. After the announcement, Newsarama caught up with Spider-Men editor Mark Paniccia, who revealed that despite previous comments from Marvel that they would never do a 616/Ultimate crossover, they couldn't pass up the opportunity for one very simple reason.

"Timing was just right. There's only one 50th Anniversary for Spider-Man." So far, all we really know is that it will be Peter who ends up in the Ultimate reality. As for whether Miles will visit the 616 universe, he remained coy. "You'll have to read to find out." Marvel earlier revealed that the Ultimate versions of Aunt May and Gwen Stacy would have a role in the limited series, to which Paniccia added: "As you might guess, this is a story that's filled to the brim with poignancy for our cast. This will definitely impact May and Gwen. I think one of the best ways to answer that question is asking yourself how you would feel in a situation like that? And Brian pulls it off magnificently with heart and soul. This will have resonance. You can't expect that everything will be tucked away nicely."

Over at Comic Book Resources, Marvel Editor-in-Chief Axel Alonso also discussed the upcoming series. While he was a little less willing to give away any specific details, he let slip the following. "All I can say is that the Peter Parker of the Ultimate Universe casts a huge shadow over Miles' spiritual and emotional development. What will he do when he's confronted with the Peter Parker from another universe? Well, that's the story. And there are a couple of things going on. First, Miles is meeting someone who's the closest flesh-and-blood thing to his actual biggest hero. Second, he's being shown a window into an entire new universe. That's mind-bending stuff for a young kid to come to terms with."

The Art looks like the first Ultimate Spider-Man comics. Though that could be what they have in mind.

Loving both The Amazing Spider-Man and Ultimate Comics: Spider-Man right now.
With this and Avengers vs. X-Men, Marvel is really knocking it out of the park.

Don't read comics(I know, why am I here? lol), even though I'm just finding out about Miles Morales. I can't help but have the thought pop in my head, where's this characters Spider-Man movie?

Looks good...I hope its Pete going to the Ultimate Universe...have a swing around meet up with Ultimate MJ, Aunt May, Gwen and freak them out abit...

Also have Pete show Mile's how its done as he is older than the Pete they knew and WAAAYYYYY more experienced...
SuperSomething616 - 4/12/2012, 5:03 AM
...and stronger and faster i might add...something that's been pointed out before!!!
TJpilgrim - 4/12/2012, 9:56 AM
I really loved Ultimate Spider-Man and I also really liked Ultimate Comics Spider-Man. But seriousley, they have already stated that "the day we make a 616 - ultimate crossover, we´re officially out of ideas". And I agree, I don't even know if I'll continue to read UCSM after this revelation.

Imagine Peter meeting Ultimate Gwen... Awkward!
DaneE5R - 4/12/2012, 10:46 AM
People hate Miles because A.) He's not Peter Parker, B.) He's black. I highly doubt that most of the haters have even read his stories.
SolidSnake007 - 4/12/2012, 5:56 PM
Of course it was going to be Miles...
SolidSnake007 - 4/12/2012, 5:56 PM
Have to make him credible by the original and only Spiderman.
