Comments

Lots of Avengers versus X-Men this month, plus tie-ins to this summer’s Marvel superhero movies, as the description for “Amazing Spider-Man” bluntly puts it.

Yes, “Spider-Men” is a Peter Parker/Miles Morales crossover. Wondering how well this works out for Miles. While universe-hopping’s just business as usual (albeit odd business) for “our” Peter Parker, for Miles, it’s uncharted territory, given he’s still getting used to the Spider-Man role. Maybe he’ll pick up a few tips from Peter…

“Amazing” has the Lizard and Morbius the Living Vampire. The former’s in this summer’s Spidey movie, while the latter, well, isn’t.
