New York, NY— June 27, 2022 — 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. Check out action-packed new interior artwork and Jacinto’s design sheets that feature these new 2099 X-Men including Cyclops, Northstar, Phoenix, and more!

And even if they can co-exist, what’ll Spider-Man and the X-Men do about the Cabal Sentinels breathing down their necks?

“From the comics to the toys, X-MEN 2099 was nothing more than the coolest stuff for me when I was just dipping my toe into reading monthly comics, launching right as I switched over from reading whatever I could from flea market back issue bins, to finally having a comic store and following books month to month,” Orlando explained when asked about his love for 2099. “The world was desolate and engrossing, the team was both familiar and different — a ragtag chosen family of mutants just struggling to survive. So, to celebrate that for 2099’s 30th Anniversary is just kickass. To get to work with some of the first X-Men I ever met? Just kickass. And to add to that family, with faces both old and new? That’s like some cross temporal electricity jolting back to whatever part of my brain holds my childhood. It wouldn’t be 2099 without the X-Men, and here? We’ve got a team built to nod to the past but also dive headlong into the future!”
