The Parkers Will (Finally) Be Together Again In Jonathan Hickman’s Ultimate Spider-Man

Share This Post

Writer Jonathan Hickman and artist Marco Checchetto’s bold new take on Ultimate Spider-Man is shaping up to be full of surprises! Launching this January as the first ongoing series set in Marvel’s new Ultimate Universe, Ultimate Spider-Man will star a very different Peter Parker—an older, wiser web-slinger who balances his super hero duties with his responsibilities as a husband and a father. That’s right, Spider-Man is a married man!

Meet Peter Parker and Mary Jane Watson—MR. & MRS. PARKER! They’re one of pop culture’s most iconic couples, and now readers will see them stronger than ever in the Ultimate Universe. To celebrate, Peter and MJ’s romance will be featured on a series of picture perfect variant covers by Elizabeth Torque that will adorn the first four issues of Ultimate Spider-Man. Spidey superstar Ryan Stegman also spotlights the whole Parker family on a new promotional piece.

“When we decided that we were going to do a book about an older Peter Parker becoming Spider-Man, we really wanted to lean into him starting his super hero life from a very different place than what’s traditionally expected,” Hickman explained. “Peter and MJ being married is one of many decisions we made that underline this being quite a ‘different’ kind of Spider-man story.”

See the happy couple on Elizabeth Torque and Ryan Stegman’s new covers and preorder Ultimate Spider-Man #1 at your local comic shop today! For more information, visit Marvel.com.
