Carnage and Spidey collide in ‘Spider-Man 2099: Dark Genesis’ May 2023

Writer Steve Orlando returns to 2099 with artist Justin Mason in new Spider-Man 2099 limited series this May!

Press Release

It’s Carnage vs. Miguel O’Hara in Marvel’s latest five-issue limited series titled Spider-Man 2099 Dark Genesis. Written by Steve Orlando with art by Justin Mason, the series spins out of Orlando’s 2099 miniseries from last year, which promises to offer up new heroes, threats, and insights into the corporate-run society of the future. The series promises to utilize other 2099 heroes like Punisher 2099, and Daredevil 2099, as well as what looks like Moon Knight and Venom, who appear on the covers.

Released on a weekly basis, the series will positively take over your May.

“It’s great to be back to 2099 – and not just build on EXODUS but also the past three incredible decades of pioneering, innovative cyberpunk work done in the world of 2099,” Orlando said. “When we last saw Spider-Man 2099, he was decimating the black card elite and upending social order to help the neighborhood. Help everyday people. But even he didn’t expect how his actions would spark an outburst of vengeance and blood — with a monster at its head. I’m so excited to be back and to be working with Justin Mason! Together, we’ve got even more 2099 classics coming your way, along with new debuts, of course! Earth-2099 is set for Carnage like none it’s ever seen.”

So what’s Spider-Man 2099 Dark Genesis about?

Nueva York is wrapped in the deadly tendrils of a brand-new Carnage! Luckily, Spider-Man 2099 won’t face it alone as he assembles a team of 2099 heroes, including redefined fan-favorites like Punisher 2099 and Daredevil 2099 and a brand-new characters like Blade 2099! As society begins to crumble, Spider-Man 2099 will need all the help he can get – but does the public even want his help? Or do they all just want to watch this world burn? SPIDER-MAN 2099: DARK GENESIS will release on a weekly schedule, allowing readers to experience 2099 thrills each week in May!
