Marvel describes the comic:

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.

Tsuburaya Fields Media & Pictures Entertainment, Inc. had announced in June 2023 that Marvel Comics and Tsuburaya Productions were creating a crossover comic book mini-series featuring Ultraman and three of Marvel's Avengers. The preview image at the time showed Ultraman with Spider-Man, Iron Man, and Captain Marvel.
