    Default Pichelli Webs Universes Together

    Pichelli Webs Universes Together




    I've chosen to underline the difference between the two Spider-Men. Miles is a young, newborn superhero, insecure and clumsy sometimes during the action. On the other hand, Peter is older and wiser. He has much more experience. He knows what to do and how to do it -- but this time his self-confidence as Spider-Man is not the same because in "Spider-Men" he has to face a reality where all his reference points have been shattered. So I had to work on a big range of mixed emotions.

    Does that mean in "Spider-Men" Peter is transported from the Marvel Universe to the Ultimate Universe? Can we expect a wide range of expressions and body language as Peter deals with the changes of this reality?


    Absolutely! Peter will find himself dealing with a different dimension that seems so familiar and at the same time so confusing the more he gets to knows it. That's why I really wanted his body language to reflect all his insecurities and fears. What makes Spider-Man special is the humanity of the hero behind the mask, and in the story I wanted to stress that strength.

    The architect of this reality switch has been revealed to be the Marvel Universe version of Mysterio. What's your sense of this character? What do you find most interesting about him? How does he differ from Ultimate Mysterio (who you've drawn before)? And is it tough to convey this Mysterio's emotions given that he doesn't really have a head?

    Mysterio (from the Marvel U) still remains an old fashion flavor villain to me, and sometimes this characteristic clashes with the modern way the Marvel Universe is depicted. You will be surprised, though, by how Bendis made him cruelly cool in this story!

    I feel closer to Ultimate Mysterio, especially in terms of costume design. The fact that he doesn't have a head but only a hint of his evil facial features makes him really scary and disturbing to me. He reminds me a bit to the face in the mirror of Grimhilde, the Snow White villain, but burning in creepy flames.This strange head of the Marvel U Mysterio makes it hard to tell his emotions, in fact you don't know if you are in front of a human being, an alien or a demon, and that makes him even creepier.

    I'm constantly worried that Pichelli is going to draw Tony with an Arc Reactor sticking out of his chest again.

    I would love to see this happen, but I don't think Spider-Woman is going to make an appearance. Readers who jumped on Ultimate Comics: Spider-Man still don't know she's a clone of Peter. This needs to be explained first before she can probably be used in Spider-Men. The second reason why I don't think she's going to make an appearance is because she would take some of the spotlight away from Miles and Peter because she is more or less also Peter. The last reason why I don't think she's going to make an appearance is because there's already enough going on in the the mini.

    I think Bendis has missed a golden opportunity for both characters. He could have made Jessica Miles mentor. This would have been a good way to train him and still have some connection to Peter in the book. It would also have let to some great character development for both of therm and some fun awkward scenes, especially if Miles developed a crush on her.

    On topic: i'm still not phased by this at all, just going to ignore it and then after IF it has any real value to the ultimate universe I'll buy the trade.

    I just realized something. If Spider-Men will be the first time Peter is meeting a Samuel L. Jackson version of Fury. How will his first encounter with Marcus Johnson AKA Fury jr. go in the 616 universe 0_0. That's going to be weird.

    It's really weird when you think about it. Ultimate Fury is classic Fury's counterpart, seeing as he initially looked just like a black version of him and has almost the exact same backstory. But now Nick Fury, Jr. shows up looking and presumably acting like Ultimate Fury....who's a counterpart of who? Does Ultimate Fury have two counterparts? I've gone crosseyed.
