During a retailer event at Comi-Con International in San Diego Friday, Marvel Comics teased a return to the 2099 timeline.
The announcement comes off the heels of Spider-Man 2099's return to comics in this month's Amazing Spider-Man #25. With the tease, his reappearance may be part of something much bigger than just a simple cameo. Marvel released the following image, slating the book or event for a November 2019 release date.
Beginning in 1992, Marvel 2099 featured futuristic takes on well-known characters like Dr. Doom, Punisher and Spider-Man -- although the line also featured new characters like Ravage. Spider-Man 2099 was the breakout book of the series and its protagonist, Miguel O'Hara, would go on to appear in Marvel titles long after the series had ended.
Before his recent appearance in Nick Spencer's Amazing Spider-Man #25, O'Hara also appeared in two of his own solo books, both set in the then-current Marvel 616 universe. The character also appeared briefly in events like writer Dan Slott's Spider-Verse. The futuristic hero even scored an after-credits cameo in the Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse movie where he was voiced by Oscar Isaac. However, the character isn't a mainstay for the 616 and is mostly confined to appearances few and far between.
Aside from O'Hara, the 2099 Universe hasn't made waves in years, making this return a huge one for fans. Little is known at the moment, but it looks like Nick Spencer's current run of Amazing Spider-Man will pave the way for 2099's November comeback.
