After coming to back to our time in Superior Spider-Man last year, Spider-Man 2099 is branching out on his own in a brand new ongoing series in July. The new Spider-Man 2099 series stars Miguel O’Hara of course as a man out of time, thrust into the past (i.e. the present day Marvel Universe) with a goal to prevent the dark future he came from. Joining O’Hara on this crusade is the writer of the original Spider-Man 2099 series from the 1990s, Peter David, and artist Will Sliney from Fearless Defenders.

“Miguel is now trapped in the present day Marvel Universe, so straight away we have to deal with the fact that in the greatest of Marvel traditions, we have a hero out of time,” Sliney says, referring to Captain America who was frozen in the 1940s and awaked in modern times. “I’m looking forward to drawing that iconic costume in the surroundings of some of New York’s gritty and textured looking neighborhoods.

With Spider-Man 2099 now living and working in the present day he’s sharing space with his namesake and idol – the original Spider-Man, Peter Parker. With that fact front and center, an obvious question to David is what would Miguel call himself in modern times; to wit, David proffered an idea: “How about ‘S-Man?’”
