Spider-men by Brian Michael Bendis

While patrolling the dark streets of New York, Spider-man stumbles upon a mysterious glowing energy beam and his nemesis, Mysterio. Just when it seems like Spider-man has bested his enemy again, he falls into the energy field. Waking up in daylight, he starts to notice that scenery around him is distinctly New York, but maybe not his New York...

He sets off to investigate and it isn't long before he stumbles into another masked crusader. Dressed in a black suit with webbing, Miles Morales is stunned to meet the original Spider-man. But Peter Parker isn't sure what to think of this pint-sized super human. Peter and Miles make their introductions flying across the New York skyline and Peter is horrified to learn that he's in an alternate universe where his doppelganger's death made the front page of the Daily Bugle. The name "Peter Parker" has become synonymous with "hero," and Miles hopes to carry on that tradition.

S.H.I.E.L.D. and The Avengers work to find a way to send Peter back, but Peter escapes to his childhood home to see if what everyone is telling him is true. Gwen, MJ, and Aunt May aren't sure what to think about seeing an older version of their beloved Peter showing up on their door step. Will Peter make it home? Or will Mysterio finally get a universe without a Spider-man?
