Marvel is bringing back the 90s with a relaunch of “Spider-Man 2099″ from Peter David, the original creator, and artist Will Sliney this July. For those of you who didn’t grow up reading comics in the 90s (count yourself lucky) the series follows Miguel O’Hara who attempts to change his future after becoming stranded in present day 2014.

While I am skeptical of bringing back any 90s characters, the fact that Peter David is willing to return to the series offers a glimmer of hope. Check out the concept art below and some quotes from Peter David.


From the press release:

Get ready to party like it’s 2099, bitheads! Because YOU demanded it – Spider-Man 2099 is back and he’s here to stay in SPIDER-MAN 2099 #1! From the splintered fringes of time comes an all-new ongoing series from legendary Spider-Man 2099 creator Peter David (All-New X-Factor, Amazing Spider-Man) and fan-favorite artist Will Sliney (Fearless Defenders, Superior Spider-Man Team-Up)!

Stranded in the present day after the events of the New York Times best-selling Superior Spider-Man series, Miguel O’Hara must come to terms with living in the year 2014. Undercover in the employ of mega-corporation Alchemax, he’ll attempt to change the course of his future and prevent the rise of one of his greatest villains!

“Miguel becomes determined to try and transform his grandfather, Tiberius Stone into a decent guy in the hopes that it will wind up informing the raising of Tyler Stone, and perhaps make him a better person,” says writer Peter David in an interview with Marvel.com. “In short, he’s hoping that he can influence the development of both the present and future of Alchemax.”

“He’s going to find that’s not as easy as he’d hoped,” David continued.

“It’s going to be a huge year for all things Spider!” added series editor Ellie Pyle “This is your chance to get to know Spider-Man 2099 before the Spider-Man universe gets more crowded, and Peter and Will have prepared quite the introduction!”

Can one man change the future? When the dust settles – will there still be a future worth fighting for? The battle for tomorrow begins this July in SPIDER-MAN 2099 #1!

    so its Spider-Man 2099 set in 2014? oooooookay. so it’ll just be typical Spider-Man but with a “fancy” costume?

      Well typical Spider-Man right now is Doc Oc, so it’s not all that typical. I imagine this will be quite weird as well.
