There weren't a great number of revelations at Marvel Comics' Spider-Man panel Saturday at Comic-Con International in San Diego, but there were some new insights.

Spider-editor Axel Alonso promised a controversial and sure-to-be-debated event in "Amazing Spider-Man" #35.

"Ultimate Spider-Man" writer Brian Michael Bendis responded by promising an unnamed big event in issue 13 of his series, followed by a Doctor Octopus/Kraven the Hunter story.

The Ultimate Kraven stars in his own reality TV show and for sweeps week, announces that he'll be hunting down and capturing Spider-Man "who is saddened to learn that no one sees anything wrong with this," Bendis said, "And everyone's rooting for Kraven."

Those thinking that both versions of Peter Parker's love life have been a little lacking should take heart: "Peter Parker, Spider-Man" writer Paul Jenkins looks likely to do a Mary Jane project – either a one-shot or three issue miniseries – telling "where she is now, what she's doing, so she stays current in the mind of Spider-Man readers," Jenkins said.

Meanwhile, the Ultimate Gwen Stacy will be appearing in "Ultimate Spider-Man," Bendis said, "very soon. And honestly, I can't wait for you to see her. But it's not going to be in Previews. Remember the old days where you would turn the page and be surprised?"
