In an announcement on Newsarama.com on March 27, details about the new series were revealed. The character who first debuted in the pages of "Spider-Man 2099" #1 in 1992, headlined his own series until 1996. Since then he has made sporadic appearances in the Marvel Comics Universe.
In "Superior Spider-Man" #17 (November 2013), Spider-Man 2099 returned to mainstream comics in a big way travelling through time and landing in the present day Marvel Universe where he tangled with the modern Superior Spider-Man. This appearance garnered him enough attention to get his own series.
The new series will be set in the present day Marvel Universe as Spider-Man 2099, aka Miguel O'Hara, will be part of a world where Peter Parker is returning to be Spider-Man. This is a different setting for the Spidey of the future; very different from the corporation ruled future of Marvel 2099.
But the Marvel of 2099 is quite fertile with characters. Will any other stars of the Marvel 2099 Universe join Spider-Man 2099?
1992 kicked off the exploration of the Marvel that was then 107 years in the future with four titles "Spider-Man 2099," "Doom 2099," "Punisher 2099," and "Ravage 2099." The line was quickly expanded to incorporate more of the popular Marvel Superheroes. Let's take a look at the history of 2099.
