The Avengers are hosting yet another IP crossover this summer, this time, with the iconic Japanese superhero: Ultraman. Meant to serve as a continuation of the Ultraman four-issue limited series released in 2020, this brand new ULTRAMAN X AVENGERS is being created by beloved Mighty Morphin Power Rangers creators such as Kyle Higgins and Mat Groom on writing, with art by Francesco Manna. In it, the premise leaves it so that Ultraman meets and teams up with The Avengers, Spider-Man, and even more characters in the Marvel universe.

Here is Marvel’s official description of the series:

Spider-Man has disappeared from New York, an intergalactic invader has arrived on Ultraman’s doorstep, and the Kaiju of Earth are acting even more mysteriously than usual. This can only mean one thing: It’s time for Ultraman to meet the Avengers! But what cosmic threat is great enough to require a team-up of Marvel’s mightiest champions and Japan’s greatest hero? Find out as Shin meets Sam, Spacium Ray meets Repulsor Ray, and “THWIP!” meets “SHUWATCH!” – in the epic crossover event.

“Of course we’re excited to be back with more ULTRAMAN, as ever, but especially for such a meaningful event,” said Groom and Higgins. “This is the first time Ultraman will meet the Avengers, despite them having so much in common– both being created in the 1960s, both being arguably the most popular and successful super heroes from their respective countries of origin. Being able to tell the story of this historic meeting: discovering how they interact, the ways in which they’re different, what they have to learn from each other—it’s a tremendous privilege.”
