The X-Men of 2099 are back, and with some new members are ready to join Miguel O’Hara’s wall-crawler for Spider-Man 2099: Exodus #5.
X marks the future
Marvel fans who remember the 2099 label when it was first a thing in the 90s will definitely recall that era’s X-Men. They were kind of hard to miss after all, and a big part of the brand.
If you dug ’em, then you’re going to be happy with today’s news since, as a part of the publisher’s new 2099 push, they’re coming back. This time it’s not in their own title (yet), but as guest-stars in the new Spider-Man 2099 limited series.
Marvel Comics is currently celebrating the 30-year anniversary of its 2099 imprint with SPIDER-MAN 2099: EXODUS, a thrilling limited series that revolutionizes the far-future setting for a new age! Written by Steve Orlando, the saga kicks off when a Celestial falls to Earth, providing a glimmer of hope to the grim dystopian world that fan-favorite hero Spider-Man 2099, Miguel O’Hara, must protect at all costs. Following Spider-Man’s mission, each issue of the series switches focus to a different team or character resulting in a thrilling journey that catches readers up to speed with the core elements of the 2099 mythos and introduces new heroes along the way such as 2099 versions of Black Widow, Loki, and Winter Soldier. And in August’s SPIDER-MAN 2099: EXODUS #5, Orlando will team up with acclaimed artist Kim Jacinto to debut the new X-MEN 2099! Joining classic X-MEN 2099 characters such as Cerebra, Krystalin, and Bloodhawk will be new X-Men, some of who have adopted the names of their legendary predecessors.
