2022 marked the 30th anniversary of Marvel’s Spider-Man 2099 and the publisher revisited its alternate dystopian far future with Spider-Man 2099: Exodus, a new series from writer Steve Orlando that revisited and expanded on that world.
But it wasn’t just an anniversary roundup, Orlando will return to 2099 in Spider-Man 2099: Dark Genesis, a five-issue weekly series in May that will force Miguel O’Hara to “defend his broken world from an overwhelming new threat!” !”

“It’s great to return to 2099, and not only build on Exodus, but also the last three incredible decades of pioneering and groundbreaking cyberpunk work done in the world of 2099,” Orlando says in Marvel’s announcement.
“The last time we saw Spider-Man 2099, he was decimating the black card elite and increasing social order to help the neighborhood. Help ordinary people. But even he didn’t expect how his actions would spark an outburst of revenge and blood. with a monster at the head”.
All five issues of the series will feature lead covers by Nick Bradshaw and will be drawn by Spider-Punk artist Justin Mason, who with Orlando will present a new Carnage in 2099 New York.

To help combat the threat, Spider-Man 2099 recruits a team of heroes that includes “redefined fan favorites” like Punisher 2099 and Daredevil 2099 and new characters like Blade 2099.
“As society begins to unravel, Spider-Man 2099 will need all the help he can get, but do the public want their help? Or do they just want to watch this world burn?” read the Marvel description.
“I’m very excited to be back and working with Justin Mason,” Orlando continued. “Together, we have even more 2099 classics on the way, along with new debuts of course! Earth-2099 is geared up for Carnage like never before.”
Spider-Man 2099: Dark Genesis #1 (of 5) goes on sale May 3 and continues weekly through May 31. Check out all five of Bradshaw’s covers below.
