Four issue ‘Ultraman X Avengers’ series coming August 2024

Kyle Higgins, Mat Groom, and Francesco Manna return for the first-ever Ultraman and Marvel Crossover comic this August.

Teased way back in 2022 for a 2023 premiere, Marvel Comics has revealed the crossover of the century will make its debut this August with Ultraman X Avengers! The four issue series is written by Kyle Higgins and Mat Groom and artist Francesco Manna.

“Of course we’re excited to be back with more ULTRAMAN, as ever, but especially for such a meaningful event,” Groom and Higgins said. “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.”

So what’s Ultraman X Avengers about?

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.

New York, NY— May 22, 2024 — Since Marvel Comics and Tsuburaya Productions begin working together in 2019, fans have eagerly anticipated the day Ultraman would cross over with Marvel super heroes. The wait is over! This August, see the mightiest heroes of the Marvel Universe step into Ultraman’s world for the first time in ULTRAMAN X AVENGERS!

The four-issue limited series will see the return of the hit creative team behind Ultraman’s previous Marvel comic series: writers Kyle Higgins and Mat Groom and artist Francesco Manna. The four-issue epic will feature a wide array of appearances including mainstay Avengers, Spider-Man, and more.
