The return of the Marvel 2099 imprint is just a few short weeks away, and Marvel are celebrating with a series of variants.
Marvel announced today they would be releasing a series of 2099 themed variants this November, the same month the flagship character Spider-Man 2099 makes his return in the pages of Amazing Spider-Man.
The covers are an interesting mesh of new and old, creating some real treats for fans of the futuristic ‘90s imprint. 2099 versions of Hulk, Fantastic Four, X-Men, Ghost Rider, and Venom appear for the first time in years on these variants. The covers also offer new 2099 versions of some characters, such as Jane Foster’s Valkyrie identity, Loki and Ghost-Spider.
Interestingly a Daredevil design differs from the previous Daredevil 2099. That version was a Marvel Knights one-shot which introduced a descendant of Wilson Fisk who assumed the Daredevil identity to save lives as a means to balance his criminal deeds.
There’s also a Captain America cover featuring Roberta Mendez, the previously time-displaced Cap of the future. She was last seen in the final issue of 2017’s Spider-Man 2099 series, where she was returned to her era after Miguel fixed the timeline. After being stranded in the present, Miguel died in those stories, but was resurrected in the year 2099 by Strange and told he could never return to the present. Regardless Miguel came back for Spider-Geddon and was last seen in Amazing Spider-Man #25, crashing down to Earth after being attacked by an unseen foe.
Amazing Spider-Man #33 is due in stores November 6th. You can check the full list of 2099 cover variants below.
