Marvel returns readers to the dystopian world of Marvel 2099 in the upcoming Spider-Man 2099: Exodus series by Steve Orlando, Paul Fry, David Wachter, Marco Castiello, Ze Carlos, Alessandro Mircola, and Kim Jacinto
The return to the futuristic world (that was conceived in 1992) begins when a Celestial falls to Earth and sets Spider-Man 2099 on a quest that will include encounters with new versions of classic character such as the 2099 Winter Soldier, a new version of 2099 Loki, and new members of the 2099 X-Men.
Before stepping into the future, Orlando embarked on a trip to the past for the inspiration for the new series, recalling that while “Roving the spinner-racks and trading cards of the early 1990s, the world of 2099 was my first future dystopia, its neon haunted visions of Marvel’s future close to my heart. And at the forefront of that future, fighting as anyone with his name always has, for the everyday folks of the future? Miguel O’Hara. Spider-Man 2099. So here, decades later, celebrating the 30th Anniversary of 2099 is a dream come true! And there was never any question who’d be the face of this celebration…your friendly, futuristic Spider-Man! And for Miguel, this fight is bigger than ever, since it’s his first time going toe to toe with one of Spider-Man’s greatest villains.”
The journey begins on May 4 with Spider-Man 2099: Exodus Alpha, followed by Spider-Man 2099: Exodus #1 on May 25, and Spider-Man 2099: Exodus #2 on June 1.
