Spider-Man 2099 was one of my Nineties favorites to read in comics. It is such an interesting premise and a great playground for current Marvel writers to play in. Today, a new storyline has begun in Amazing Spider-Man #33, today. Check out the trailer (below), details, and cover (far below).
Press Release: The past and future collide! Can the Spider-Men of two times set things straight, or will there be only dark times ahead for the Marvel Universe? The first chapter in the epic Amazing Spider-Man event, “2099,” hits stands tomorrow – get the lowdown on the story in this launch trailer featuring Executive Editor Nick Lowe and writer Nick Spencer!
Miguel O’Hara, the Spider-Man of the year 2099, travels back to our time to enlist Peter Parker’s aid in preventing the collapse of the time stream.

“We wanted to capture the spirit of the original 2099, but while doing a completely new version and a completely new take,” says Spencer.
“This isn’t an alternate timeline! This isn’t a What If…! This is the future of the Marvel Universe!” exclaims Lowe.
