In February, Marvel Comics released an intriguing image combining the emblems of "Ultimate Comics Spider-Man" star Miles Morales and "Amazing Spider-Man's" Peter Parker. Today, the publisher has raised even more questions about the possibility of a universal crossover with the release of a new teaser image and solicitation information for "Spider-Men" #1 written by Brian Michael Bendis with art by Sarah Pichelli and Justin Ponsor due out in June.

While many speculated the original "Spider-Men" teaser would herald the resurrection of Ultimate Peter Parker, the information contained with this new image seems to suggest otherwise, implying a crossover with the mainstream Marvel U. According to the sparse solicitation, "history will be made for the Marvel Universe" with no mention of the Ultimate Universe. A crossover between the Marvel and Ultimate universes is unprecedented since the Ultimate line launched in 2000 with "Ultimate Spider-Man." Considering the popularity of Miles Morales and the upcoming "Amazing Spider-Man" film, it's understandable the publisher would put a story into the works causing Peter Parker and Miles to meet, drawing in new readers fresh from the movie.

Check out the image and solicitation info below and stay tuned to CBR News for more on Bendis and Pichelli's "Spider-Men."
