Main character(s)Miguel O'Hara / Spider-Man 2099

Spider-Man 2099 is a fictional superhero appearing in American comic books published by Marvel Comics. The character was created by Peter David and Rick Leonardi in 1992 for the Marvel 2099 comic book line, and is a futuristic re-imagining of his namesake created by Stan Lee and Steve Ditko. His real identity is Miguel O'Hara, a brilliant geneticist living in Nueva York (formerly New York City) in the year 2099 hoping to recreate the abilities of the original Spider-Man in other people only to later suffer an accident that causes half of his DNA to be re-written with a spider's genetic code, giving him similar abilities. Originally wishing to be rid of his powers, he becomes a vigilante and symbol of hope in his dystopian future by becoming the new Spider-Man.

The character has appeared in numerous media adaptations, including the animated film Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse in a post-credit scene where he is voiced by Oscar Issac.

Publication history[edit]

Writer Peter David and artist Rick Leonardi, who launched the first Spider-Man 2099 series in 1992

Spider-Man 2099 was one of the many Marvel characters created for the Marvel 2099 comic book line, most of which were future versions of classic Marvel characters living in the year 2099. Beginning in 1992, the Marvel 2099 stories were meant to depict a possible future of the Marvel Universe (this future era is later designated Universe-928). The idea was that over a century later, decades after end of "the Heroic Age" (the time period of modern Marvel stories), America was now a dystopian country with a number of cyberpunk elements, where ordinary citizens lived under the rule of mega-corporations and a privatized police force called the Public Eye. Spider-Man 2099's first story was in Spider-Man 2099 vol. 1 #1, but the first five pages were shown months earlier in a sneak preview in the 30th-anniversary issue of The Amazing Spider-Man.

The character was originally designed by artist Rick Leonardi, with Peter David brought onto the series as writer to flesh out the character's alter ego, Miguel O'Hara, and supporting characters. Spider-Man 2099 #1 was written by Peter David, pencilled by Rick Leonardi, inked by Al Williamson, and lettered by Rick Parker.[1] David named the character after his friend, actor Miguel Ferrer.[2] Spider-Man 2099 #1 is the highest-selling single issue of any comic written by Peter David.[3]

Although the first Spider-Man 2099 series consistently sold more than 100,000 copies per issue, the book and entire 2099 comic line underwent a drastic shift in early 1996 after 2099 series editor Joey Cavalieri was fired. At this time, Marvel's finances and future were unstable, and sudden firings were quite common. Like virtually all of the other writers in the line, Peter David showed solidarity with his editor by resigning from the book with issue #44.[4] Marvel quickly turned the 2099 titles over to fill-in writers and editors, ending them soon afterward. The last two issues of Spider-Man 2099 vol. 1 were done without Peter David's input and the series ended with issue #46. A few months later, Marvel announced they would publish a new 2099 title, 2099: World of Tomorrow, immediately following the last issues of the original titles, under the new staff. The new bi-monthly title lasted eight issues and was meant to serve as a finale for the 2099 line.

Miguel O'Hara was seen again without a costume in 1998 in 2099: Manifest Destiny, a one-shot issue intended to bring further closure to the 2099 line and its unresolved storylines. The character has since made several cameo and guest appearances in such titles as Captain Marvel vol. 3 #27–30 (written by Peter David) and in Exiles #75–99.[5] Marvel published a collected edition of the first ten issues of the original series in April 2009[6] and a second collection in October 2013 collecting up to #14.[citation needed]

The character and setting were reimagined for the Timestorm 2009–2099 four-issue limited series published from April to August 2009. Although bearing the Spider-Man 2099 moniker, it is a different version of the character.[7]

Writer Peter David and artist Will Sliney, the creative team on the 2014 series

Spider-Man 2099 next appeared in The Superior Spider-Man #17–19 in the 2013 "Necessary Evil" storyline,[8] the end of which left Miguel O'Hara stranded in the present day of the mainstream Marvel timeline.[9] In July 2014, Marvel launched a second Spider-Man 2099 series to follow "Necessary Evil" and depict Miguel's adventures in the modern-day setting. Peter David returned as writer with Will Sliney joining as artist, and Simone Bianchi illustrating the first issue's cover. The character was part of the 2014 "Spider-Verse" crossover storyline that involved different versions of Spider-Man across space and time joining forces, including Peter Parker.[10]

Spider-Man 2099 vol. 2 ended in July 2015, followed months later by the relaunched Spider-Man 2099 vol. 3, a series that ended in 2017 with #25, in which Miguel O'Hara finally returns to 2099. The final story arc also introduces a second character using the Spider-Man 2099 identity.[11]

Fictional character biography[edit]

Early years[edit]

Miguel O'Hara is born in Nueva York (the city once known as New York City) many years after the end of the "Heroic Age", which is how history books of that time refer to the modern-day era of Marvel heroes. The modern-day mainstream Marvel Comics take place in Universe-616 and this future era Miguel is born into is designated Universe-928. It is one of several possible futures for the modern Marvel era and it has been shown that changes to Universe-616 can cause alterations to Miguel's world, as seen in Spider-Man 2099 Meets Spider-Man (1995).

Miguel grows up with his mother Conchata, his younger brother Gabriel, and his abusive father George O'Hara. A rebellious boy with prodigy-level intelligence, Miguel is an adolescent when he is awarded enrollment into the Alchemax School for Gifted Youngsters (heavily implied to be a renovated version of the X-Mansion, the X-Men's headquarters) in Westchester, owned by the powerful Alchemax mega-corporation which also controls the law enforcement agency the Public Eye. There, he befriends Xina Kwan, an intellectual rival who specializes in computers, and bully Kron Stone, son of Tyler Stone, then Vice President of R&D for Alchemax.[12]

As adults, Miguel and Xina date seriously until Miguel cheats on her with Dana D'Angelo, the ex-girlfriend of Miguel's brother Gabe.[13] Later on, Miguel and Dana are engaged. Seemingly arrogant and overtly confident in all walks of life, Miguel is actually very guarded, often only expressing his full thoughts to his holographic aide Lyla, an artificial intelligence housed in his apartment and programmed by Xina.[volume & issue needed]

Origin as Spider-Man[edit]

Miguel becomes head of the Alchemax genetics program, working for Tyler Stone and tasked with creating super-soldiers for the corporation called "corporate raiders." Inspired by surviving records of the Heroic Age, Miguel thinks Spider-Man's unique power set of superhuman strength, speed and agility, along with his wall-crawling, making him the perfect model for a corporate raider. Despite Miguel saying it is too early to do so, he is ordered to experiment on a human test subject who then dies during the genetic alternation process. Miguel decides to resign from Alchemax, but Tyler Stone tricks him into taking "rapture," an addictive drug that genetically bonds to the user and which only Alchemax is legally allowed to distribute.[14] Not wishing to be an addict blackmailed into work he finds unethical, Miguel recalls he entered his own genetic code into his machine as a human DNA test sample. Hoping to overwrite his current biology with his previous, uncorrupted genetic code, Miguel sneaks into Alchemax and enters the gene alteration machine.[15]

Miguel's jealous subordinate Aaron Delgado sees him entering the machine and sabotages the process, hoping to kill him. His interference causes the machine to rewrite Miguel's genetic code to be 50% his original DNA and 50% "spider DNA." Miguel survives the process, now displaying fangs, talons, and seemingly blank eyes (later revealed to be a side-effect when Miguel uses enhanced vision). A panicked Delgado attacks him, causing part of the lab to explode in the process. Delgado winds up falling out of the building and Miguel grabs him, not realizing his talons tear into Aaron's flesh. Delgado falls and Miguel realizes he has inherited spider abilities. Initially considers suicide, Miguel's survival instincts take over and he chooses to escape for home instead. Along the way, he comes across a Thorite, a man who worships Marvel's hero Thor and waits for his return to Earth. When asked who he is, Miguel flippantly suggests "Spider-Man." The Thorite takes him seriously, believing that this is the historical Spider-Man of the Heroic Age who has returned and is the "harbinger" of Thor's eventual return. He gives Miguel part of his "light byte" glider cloth as a gift, insisting Miguel mask himself with it since Spider-Man must be masked. Miguel finally returns home, only telling Lyla what has happed while he avoids his family and Dana.[16]

Examining the wreckage of the lab, Tyler Stone realizes there is now a person with abilities similar to Spider-Man. To retrieve this person, Tyler Stone sends out Venture, a cyborg "elite corps" agent. Realizing he's being tracked by his body heat trail, Miguel confronts Venture after donning a bodysuit he once wore for a Day of the Dead festival, choosing it because it has a full face mask and is made from Unstable Molecule Fabric ("UMF"), meaning it won't be shredded by the spider-talons that allow him to wall-crawl. He also quickly seals the light byte cloth to it, allowing for limited gliding. During his fight with Venture, Miguel is aided by Thorites who see him as the Harbinger of Thor, one of whom is then killed. Horrified, Miguel continues his fight alone, discovering he has natural web-spinnerets, and finally defeats the cyborg. The fight is broadcast live and the existence of Spider-Man 2099 becomes public, with some believing he is the original hero.[17]

Heroic career[edit]

Returning to work at Alchemax, Miguel is originally focused with using the corporations resources on finding a cure for his condition. At the same time, he finds he enjoys that as Spider-Man he actually shakes the confidence of Alchemax and the Public Eye. Miguel's further adventures as Spider-Man 2099 lead him to realize he is ignorant about major aspects of his own society (such as the fact that old New York City still exists beneath the streets of Nueva York) and has turned a blind eye to the full oppression and pain the corporations of the world have caused, as well as his role in helping them and benefitting from their resources. He is also surprised and humbled to see the effect his presence has on the people who have been oppressed, particularly his own mother, who ironically admires Spider-Man 2099 while hating that her eldest son has become a sell-out tool of the mega-corporations. Eventually, Miguel decides to embrace his identity as Spider-Man, publicly proclaiming he will use his powers to fight for ordinary people against those in power who abuse their authority.[18]

Later on, Miguel discovers that an arrogant scientist at Alchemax called Jordan Boone is conducting "Virtual Unreality" experiments to create a doorway into another dimension. These experiments lead to the release of two mysterious figures: a powerful megalomaniac called Thanatos and a man called the Net Prophet, known also as "the prophet of Thor" by the Thorites. The Net Prophet becomes a new ally to Miguel, and this association leads more people to believe Spider-Man 2099 is the harbinger of Thor.[19] In the "Time Flies Saga" published years later in Peter David's Captain Marvel series, it is revealed that the Net Prophet is actually the hero Justice (John Roger Tensen) and Thanatos is a corrupt version of Rick Jones from Earth-9309.[20]

The first major crossover of Marvel 2099 happens when Miguel and Dana visit Alchemax's floating city Valhalla and are startled by the sudden appearance of two men claiming to be Thor and Heimdall. It is later discovered that Alchemax CEO Avatarr has transformed ordinary people into duplicates of the Asgardians in order to take advantage of Thorite belief and elimatine the rising influence new superheroes have over the public. By joining forces, Doom, Ravage, the Punisher (Jake Gallows), the 2099 team of X-Men, and Spider-Man 2099 are able to defeat the fake Aesir, and Valhalla falls.[21]

Miguel later learns that his brother Gabe is aware of his dual identity, having recognized Spider-Man's costume from what Miguel wore to the Day of the Dead festival years earlier. Gabe grows resentful of Miguel's new heroic identity, particularly since his girlfriend Kasey seems enamored with Spider-Man 2099.[22]

After his holographic aide Lyla suffers a serious malfunction, Miguel asks for repairs from his ex-girlfriend Xina. Dana later accuses Miguel of cheating on her with Xina. Miguel becomes angry about this and about Dana's noticeably increasing interest in Tyler Stone. The two dissolve their romantic relationship, and Xina and Miguel become companions again.[23]

Spider-Man 2099 Meets Spider-Man[edit]

In the 1995 one-shot, Spider-Man 2099 Meets Spider-Man, Miguel and Peter Parker, the Spider-Man of the Heroic Age, find themselves having switched places, with Miguel waking up next to Peter's wife, Mary Jane, and Spider-Man finding himself in the future. They discover that their predicament is caused by Fujikawa (in the Modern Age) and Alchemax (in the year 2099) running experiments on a temporal energy generator. While Peter tackles the Vulture of 2099, Miguel faces Venom (Eddie Brock). Discovering the date of when he now is, Miguel recalls this is when history texts say much of Earth's technology and records are wiped out and the Heroic Age comes to an end. He realizes this temporal anomaly will be the cause.

The two Spider-Men unite to face a major cause of the chaos, a time-traveling female Hobgoblin of the year 2211 (Robin Borne) from the alternative universe of Earth-9500. They are aided by this Hobgoblin's father, Spider-Man (Max Borne), and eventually everyone is sent back to their respective times. Returning to 2099, Miguel realizes he has altered history slightly. He no longer remembers when the Heroic Age actually ended and even the historical texts are now vague about the details.[24]

Revelations, Nightshade, and "One Nation Under Doom"[edit]

While eavesdropping on a conversation between his mother Conchata and Tyler Stone, Miguel learns that the rapture Stone gave him was only a short-lasting simulation and would have worn off in time, meaning he could have avoided the events that made him Spider-Man. He also learns Tyler Stone is his real father, which is part of why his mother sometimes has anger toward him. Shaken by this, he leaves Nueva York to go traveling with Xina.[23] They travel to Nightshade, an independent research town (free of mega-corp rule) run by Angela Daskelakis, their former headmistress at the Alchemax institute. Alchemax attempts a hostile takeover of Nightshade, destroying most of the city and killing Angela in the process. Xina returns home and Miguel encounters an old homunculus-like robot. After seeing Spider-Man's mask, it transforms itself into a hybrid of the modern-day Spider-Man and Venom, naming itself Flipside. The robot develops psychopathic and homicidal tendencies but Miguel escapes and returns to Nueva York.[25]

Upon his return, Miguel finds out that Doom 2099 has assumed control over the U.S. and its mega-corporations. Tyler Stone is appointed as Doom's Corporate Minister and Miguel is offered the seat of CEO of Alchemax. Later, Doom 2099 offers Spider-Man 2099 the position of Minister of Supernormal Affairs. Miguel eventually accepts the position at Alchemax, deciding to change the company for the better. He also uses his new influence to order law enforcement to leave Spider-Man 2099 alone.[26]

Venom, Submariner, and Goblin 2099[edit]

After Miguel assumes his new position of power, the Venom symbiote, still alive but slightly altered, returns and takes on a new host body. The new Venom 2099 attacks Tyler Stone and then battles Spider-Man 2099. During the fight, Dana is tragically killed.[27]

Soon after this, a new villain called the Goblin appears and begins a smear campaign against Spider-Man 2099, displaying out-of-context evidence that implies he is actually a tool of the corporations and only pretends to be a hero of the people. Miguel hopes to get aid from Doom 2099, but the monarch is then removed from power.[28]

Meanwhile, Miguel O'Hara deals with Alchemax business and gets help when his mother Conchata becomes his assistant, attempting to rebuild their relationship. She later confesses that she was the one who shot Tyler Stone. The Neo-Atlanteans, bio-engineered workers tasked with complete Alchemax's underwater colony "Atlantis," rebel against their corporate lords. Led by the new Sub-Mariner Roman (a reverse spelling of the original Namor), they attack the city but are fended off by Spider-Man.[29] Soon after this, Miguel learns the Goblin is his brother Gabe, twisted by jealousy.

As the Spider-Man 2099 series approached its end, Peter David left the book following the firing of editor . The Goblin story is put aside and a new story quickly ends the series. The one-shots 2099: World of Tomorrow and 2099: Manifest Destiny deliver an ending for the 2099 line. In 2013, Superior Spider-Man #17 reintroduces Miguel and the 2099 world at a point soon after Peter David's final issue, ignoring these the final Spider-Man 2099 volume 1 story and the one-shots that followed.

Series cancellation and beyond[edit]

In the final story of Spider-Man 2099 volume 1, the alien Phalanx approaches Earth, flooding Nueva York and paving the way for the Atlanteans to return en masse. The volume ends with the apparent deaths of Tyler Stone and Conchata O'Hara at the hands of the Atlanteans, while the Vulture destroys the Alchemax building. Miguel and Dana's sister Jennifer are left in an Alchemax airship, trying to decide where to find safety.[30]

In 2099: World of Tomorrow, the polar ice caps melt and a massive deluge kills most of the world's inhabitants. The remnants of humanity face a new threat from space: the techno-organic Phalanx. Spider-Man works together with Doom 2099 to end the invasion, in which Doom sacrifices himself for the survival of mankind.[31]

In the 1998 one-shot 2099: Manifest Destiny, society rebuilds following the Phalanx invasion. Conchata is said to be alive. Miguel reopens Alchemax and marries Xina. Together, they reawaken Steve Rogers, offering him Thor's hammer Mjolnir (it had been previously established in mainstream Marvel Comics that Steve Rogers was deemed worthy to lift Mjolnir). Jettisoned into space, Rogers passes Mjolnir back to Miguel, who is now deemed worthy enough to lift and wield the mystical hammer, gaining new power from it.

Secretly aided by Zero Cochrane 2.0 (Ghost Rider 2099), Miguel rules for the next thousand years, ushering in an unprecedented age of enlightenment. Peace, morality, and progress spread from Earth to the surrounding worlds. In 3099, Rogers is once again revived and takes the hammer, leaving Miguel to retire. Miguel O'Hara's journey from a cowardly, arrogant youth to superhero to galactic leader and icon comes to an end.[32]

Stranded in the present[edit]

In Superior Spider-Man volume 1, Miguel and the 2099 world are reintroduced. Alchemax HQ still stands and Tyler Stone is still alive. Time anomalies cause chaos in 2099 timeline and Alchemax realizes that Tyler's father Tiberius Stone is in danger of being killed in the past, thus altering history. Spider-Man 2099 sees historical recordings of himself in the past on the date history is in danger of being changed and knows that if his biological grandfather is killed then he'll also be erased from history. With Alchemax's help, he journeys back to the era of the present day Marvel Universe to save Tiberius Stone, who at this time is working for Liz Allan, head of Allan Chemical. He winds up fighting the Superior Spider-Man, not realizing that this isn't Peter Parker but actually the villain Otto Octavius in possession of Parker's body.[33]

The story concludes with Miguel unable to return to 2099. Aided by Lyla (her AI housed in a holographic wristwatch), Miguels creates the identity of "Michael O'Mara" and becomes Tiberius's assistant to monitor the wrongdoings of Allan Chemical, which now renames itself Alchemax.[34] When the real Peter Parker is able to restore his mind and take over his body again, Miguel accepts his explanation about Octavius masquerading as him, reasoning the story is too stupid to be anything but true. Peter then learns Alchemax is actually being run by Norman Osborn.[35]

A time-traveler from 2211 attempts to kill Miguel and Liz Allan to prevent the consequences of their interaction having a negative impact on the future, but Miguel stops him.[36] When Liz nearly discovers Miguel's identity, he admits he is from the future without admitting to his role as Spider-Man 2099.[37] Tiberius Stone attempts to sell Spider-Slayer robots to a foreign country, but an encounter with ocal rebels prompts him to change his mind.[38]

"Spider-Verse"[edit]

During the "Spider-Verse" storyline, Miguel O'Hara witnesses his Avenger, Timestorm and Exiles counterparts each get killed by Morlun.[39] He and the other 616/Main Universe Spider Heroes of Earth are recruited by Spider-UK, Mayday Parker Spider-Girl of Earth-982, and Spider-Ham to join the Spider-Army to combat Inheritors, who hunt down and devour the Spider Totems like them across the Multiverse. Using dimension-travel technology, Miguel O'Hara returns to 2099 where the Inheritor Daemos is killed before being revived in a clone body. Miguel teams up with Lady Spider (May Reily), and Six-Armed Spider-Man to find the Inheritors' weaknesses. As Daemos arrives in 2099, Six-Armed Spider-Man sacrifices his life to buy some time for Spider-Man 2099 and Lady Spider to create an energy field to trap Daemos.[40]

With Daemos trapped in an energy field, Miguel meets with Tyler Stone to confront him about being stranded in the past and ask for his assistance. Miguel then runs over the bio lab to pick up something having to do with a disease Alchemax cured in the 2040s. Daemos commits suicide so he can be reborn in a new clone body. The new Daemos is accosted by Punisher 2099, who sends him falling into the downtown areas of Nueva York.[41]

Miguel and Lady Spider use their inter-dimensional jumping device to get to the safe zone on Earth-13, only to find a great number of spider heroes massacred. Miguel and Lady Spider find Toei Spider-Man's robot Leopardon and journey to Lady Spider's universe of Earth-803 to repair it. But as they get to work on the robot, Norman Osborn-803 calls his fellow Six Men of Sinistry to take out Lady Spider in revenge for her thwarting their attempted kidnapping of the mayor. After a battle, Miguel and Lady Spider take Leopardon to rejoin the other Spiders.[42]

Arriving to Loomworld on Earth-001 to aid the surviving Spider-Totems, Miguel and Lady Spider present Takuya Yamashiro with their improved version of Leopardon. After the Inheritors are defeated and Master Weaver is killed by the Superior Spider-Man, the surviving Spiders return to their respective realities one by one, despite Superior Spider-Man (Octavius from the recent past) at one point damaging the Web of Life and Destiny in a failed attempt alter his own future.[43]

Journey back to 2099[edit]

Attempting to return home after the Spider-Verse, Miguel ends up in a post-apocalyptic version of the year 2099 on Earth-9200 (from The Incredible Hulk: Future Imperfect storyline). Miguel is found by Maestro, a corrupt version of the Hulk who mistakes Miguel for his world's Peter Parker.[44] With the help of a woman named Strange, Miguel is returned to the modern-day Marvel Universe rather than his native 2099.[45]

All-New, All-Different Marvel[edit]

Following the "Secret Wars" storyline, Miguel is stranded in the present.[46]

Following a crimefighting incident gone wrong, Miguel considers retirement. He accepts a job offer at Parker Industries from Peter Parker, resolving to improve the world without needing to become Spider-Man again. However, a time portal he builds continues to reveal a devastated version of 2099 rather than the version he knows. When his lover, Tempest, is killed in a terrorist attack,[47] Miguel is compelled to return to action to track down the man responsible: Doctor Chronos, the man who apparently taught robotics to Victor von Doom.[48] During the subsequent fight, Chronos reveals that he is working for an organization known as "The Fist" before he dies from his injuries.[49] Meanwhile, Roberta Mendez - the Captain America of 2099 - is revealed to have been trapped in the past.

The bounty hunter Venture escapes into the present through Miguel's time portal and is recruited by the Fist.[50] Parker Industries scientist Rhonda Flemming is revealed to be an Inhuman when she undergoes Terrigenesis. Upon hatching from her cocoon, Rhonda's judgement is clouded by her newfound power and she rechristens herself Glorianna.[51] After attacking civilians and accidentally impales her girlfriend Jasmine, Glorianna disappears.

Miguel later discovers Tempest is alive and in a coma, having been secreted away by her mother, the superhuman Loraine Monroe. Loraine confesses to have killed her second husband because he was stalking Tempest, and that she wanted Tempest away from Miguel for protection.[52] Miguel learns the body of Doctor Chronos has been moved to Denver, Colorado where a scientist named Dr. Sonny Frisco is working on a time travel experiment using Glorianna as a guinea pig. Glorianna sends Miguel back to 2099 and he's captured by that era's versions of Venom and Doctor Octopus, then takento Alchemax, now run by Sinister Six 2099.

Miguel is freed by Kasey, who takes him to his brother Gabe. Miguel learns the Fist is responsible for what happened in the future and the Sinister Six 2099 discover the new Goblin is actually Father Jennifer D'Angelo, an ally of Miguel and Kasey. Spider-Man 2099 helps save Father Jennifer from the Sinister Six, but she's then killed by Doctor Octopus 2099.[53]

During the Civil War II storyline, Roberta goes back to 2099 to find her family, despite Miguel's warnings. The Public Eye attempt to arrest her, until she's rescued by Ravage 2099. In the present, Miguel receives a call from Peter Parker, who tells him of a vision the Inhuman Ulysses had of the future: the death of Roberta Mendez. He goes back to 2099.[54] Roberta learns from Ravage about the Anti-Powers Act, a law outlawing super-powers. Roberta and Ravage are taken to the downtown area by Hawkeye 2099, where they meet the remaining heroes. Spider-Man convinces Doctor Strange 2099 to help him out in exchange for his help in eliminating the A.P.A. Meanwhile, the CEO of Alchemax calls on Power Pack to defeat the heroes. Upon finding Roberta, Strange takes Spider-Man downtown, while Roberta leaves to find her husband upon learning his location. Roberta finds her husband Harry, who claims that she died and that they don't have kids, and gets captured by Power Pack. After Strange reveals that the CEO of Alchemax is J. Jonah Jameson, Spider-Man rallies the heroes to launch an assault on S.H.I.E.L.D. HQ and rescue Roberta. In the process, they discover that "Jameson" and "Power Pack" are actually Skrull impostors. Spider-Man and Roberta then go back to 2016.[55]

While on a flight to Denver, Miguel encounters Elektra in the bathroom, who questioned his connection with the Fist. Upon landing, Elektra reveals to Miguel and Roberta that the Fist is an offshoot of the Hand who broke off from it to pursue bigger plans: the destruction of the United States. Elektra goes to the Fist's HQ after knocking out Miguel and Roberta, who chase after her once they recover. They later help Elektra defeat Doctor Frisco when the base explodes. While being interrogated, Doctor Frisco reveals that the Fist brought the Sinister Six of 2099 to the present and are heading to Chicago to search a Greek witch named Medea. Arriving in Chicago, Spider-Man and Roberta witness people being turned into zombies by a spell cast by Medea.[56] Elektra stabs Medea from behind, killing her and restoring the zombified people. Tempest wakes up from her coma and is told that she is permanently paralyzed.[57] Informed of this, Miguel goes to the hospital only to encounter Man Mountain Marko, who was hired by Tyler Stone to delay Spider-Man 2099 while he took Tempest with him.[58] Upon recovering, Miguel heads back to Parker Industries HQ and finds Dr. Frisco being chased by Electro 2099. After defeating Electro, Miguel takes him to his private lab.[59]

Using a computer simulation, Miguel and Lyla trick Electro 2099 into revealing the date on which the Fist's plans come to fruition: May 15, 2019.[60] Sonny upgrades Miguel's time portal to allow him to travel to 2019, where he puts an end to the Fist's plans with help from that era's Tempest and their son Gabri, who has taken on the mantle of Spider-Man 2099. Tempest tells Miguel that he died while rescuing her from Tyler Stone, but he insists on going through with the rescue attempt for fear that changing the past again will lead to more disasters. Miguel is indeed killed when a post-hypnotic suggestion planted by Stone prompts Tempest to stab him. Due to the hypnosis, Tempest does not realize that she is the one who killed Miguel, thus preventing her from giving him a more specific warning when they met in 2099. However, Miguel is transported to 2099 and resurrected by Doctor Strange 2099, with help from Roberta and Gabri, as well as being informed that they are finally entering a year 2100 at Happy New Year.[61]

Powers and abilities[edit]

Miguel O'Hara is a highly skilled geneticist and gifted with genius-level intelligence. Though he did not take combat training, he quickly develops an effective fighting style that maximizes the use of his superhuman agility, strength, senses, and intellect.[volume & issue needed]

After having half of his DNA re-written with the genetic code of a spider, Miguel develops a wide array of powers. He has the proportionate strength, speed, and agility of a spider. If his strength is equal to that of the original Spider-Man, he should be able to lift a maximum of approximately 10–15 tons and leap roughly 30 feet in the air. His speed allows him to dodge gunfire from a short distance away and move several times faster than a normal human being can. His superhuman agility and dexterity allow him to perform complicated acrobatic and gymnastic maneuvers that would be impossible for even the most highly trained athlete and help him achieve and regain perfect balance even under extraordinary combat situations. Access to these abilities are largely instinctual, due to his re-written genetic code.[volume & issue needed]

Miguel's powers give him increased vitality and resistance to injury. He once suffered a punctured lung, broken ribs and major abrasions, and was still able to make it to a hospital where doctors said only his amazing constitution kept him alive. His metabolism allows him to heal a few times faster than a normal human, although he does not have a superhuman healing factor such as Wolverine.[volume & issue needed]

Unlike the original Spider-Man, Miguel does not possess an extra-sensory "spider-sense" that warns him of oncoming threats. Instead, Miguel possess enhanced vision and hearing, which the original Spider-Man does not have. He can see in complete darkness and can accurately perceive and zoom-in on people and objects that are a great distance away. His enhanced vision causes him to be extremely light sensitive, however, requiring that he wear tinted glasses to avoid being blinded in normal lighting conditions, which he passes off as a side effect of the Rapture.[volume & issue needed] The irises of Miguel's eyes became red, although when he uses his enhanced sight to zoom-in on an object that is far away, his eyes often become completely white, with no visible irises or pupils.[volume & issue needed] Thanks to his enhanced vision and reflexes, he can accurately perceive objects in motion that a normal person would see only as a blur. Miguel's hearing is also enhanced, though not to the extent of his vision.[volume & issue needed]

Spinnerets in his forearms enable him to fire an organic adhesive substance from the top of his wrists, usable in a wide variety of ways. Like the original Spider-Man (Peter Parker), Spider-Man 2099 can travel at high speeds swinging on "web-lines" when necessary, and he can use his webbing to ensnare enemies. Over time, this webbing loses its tensile strength and can be removed. Pressure applied to his forearms has occasionally caused him to release webbing without meaning to.[volume & issue needed]

Although the original Spider-Man is able to have any part of his body (such as his back) adhere to surfaces through unknown and invisible means, Miguel can only cling to surfaces with his hands and feet due to angled talons protruding from his fingers and toes. These talons are not retractable but can fold down when Miguel concentrates and do so automatically when he touches his own skin so that he does not injure himself. Though only approximately an inch in length, Miguel O'Hara's talons are capable of easily slicing through flesh and plastic. They can even rend metal armor.[volume & issue needed]

Miguel possesses venom glands and pronounced, pointed canine teeth. When he bites a foe, he can release a toxin that temporarily paralyzes his enemy. While the exact makeup of his venom has never been discussed, it seems powerful enough to affect such foes as Thanatos and it differs from real spider venom in that it does not seem to act as a digestive agent. Miguel also cannot retract his fangs and so has had to learn how to speak in a way that does not reveal his teeth. On occasion, this has caused others to accuse him of mumbling.[volume & issue needed]

Paraphernalia[edit]

Spider-Man 2099's costume is made from Unstable Molecule Fabric or "UMF." Originally invented by Reed Richards of the Fantastic Four, this fabric was made to be indestructible and was designed to interact with super-powers without hampering them. Miguel uses his talons through the UMF gloves and boots without tearing the cloth. The UMF does not dull the strength or sharpness of his talons in the process. The UMF costume has also offered Spider-Man 2099 limited protection from energy weapons, as the energy blasts could not penetrate it. However, this did not prevent Miguel from suffering the impact of the blasts, and he was still seriously injured. Likewise, if Miguel fell from a great height, the UMF would not protect him from the impact of landing, it simply would not tear in the process.[volume & issue needed]

Spider-Man 2099 has a small, web-like airfoil attached to the back of his costume. The material for the air foil was obtained from a Thorite's hang-glider and is made from a material called "Lyte Byte" which is specially made to capture and direct air currents and gives off a low level of anti-gravity particles. This allows Spider-Man 2099 limited gliding abilities, valuable since the New York City of 2099 has massive skyscrapers that are often too far away for him to fire a web-line for travel. The Lyte Byte material also allows him to shift direction while in free fall and is very good at slowing down his descent, allowing him to fall from great distances without reaching terminal velocity. However, this does not grant Spider-Man 2099 actual flight.[volume & issue needed] By the second volume of Spider-Man 2099 series, however, he had added anti-gravity material to the back of his costume that enables him to fly.[62]

While in costume, Miguel often reinforces his mask with webbing so that enemies cannot remove it if he is captured or disabled in some way, provided he is not held for long enough for his webbing to degrade. He uses his talons to cut the webbing off when he removes his costume.[volume & issue needed]

Other versions[edit]

Destiny War[edit]

Another version of Spider-Man 2099 was one of the alternative Avengers seen briefly during the Destiny War in Avengers Forever #12. During the Spider-Verse storyline, the Destiny War version of Spider-Man 2099 was killed by Morlun.[63]

2998 AD[edit]

In The Amazing Spider-Man #439, the issue takes place 1,000 years (2998, based on the release date of the issue) in the future. Two archaeologists stumble across relics belonging to Spider-Man (such as his webshooters). They speculate on his career, and discuss the other heroes who were inspired by him, such as Spider-Girl, Spider-Man 2099, and Spider-Man 2211.

What The--?![edit]

In issue #26 of What The--?!, a humor anthology title, the character Spider-Ham (an anthropomorphic pig who parodied the original Spider-Man) was reworked for a parody of Spider-Man 2099 entitled "Spider-Ham 15.88". A laboratory janitor named "Piguel O'Hara" accidentally falls into a vat of spider venom and gains spider-powers. A short (and confusing) excursion as Spider-Ham 2099 follows, including encounters with parody versions of Punisher 2099 and Ravage 2099.

Exiles[edit]

Spider-Man 2099 with the Exiles

The appearance of Proteus in the 2099 era before Doom 2099 comes into power causes a divergence from the original Marvel 2099, creating a new parallel reality. This new timeline where Miguel is unmasked and leaves his world before Doom takes power is now identified as Earth-6375.[64]

After battling the Exiles, a team of heroes from parallel worlds who attempt to fix damaged realities, the villain Proteus possesses the body of John "Net Prophet" Tensen[65] and escapes to the parallel Earth designated Earth-928 via Jordan Boone's Virtual Unreality portal (mirroring the Net Prophet's first arrival into 2099). This is the world of the Marvel 2099 future, though Proteus arrives at a time before Doom took over leadership of the United States.

Proteus then possesses the Hulk of that era.[66] Spider-Man 2099 joins forces with the Exiles to stop him. Proteus, being too strong for his opponent, unmasks Miguel O'Hara before the public. Spider-Man 2099 then convinces Proteus that coming to his reality was a mistake and that he should move on. Feeling guilty that he has inflicted the crazed villain onto a parallel Earth, and now afraid of being hunted down since his identity has been exposed, Spider-Man 2099 joins the Exiles in their quest to stop Proteus and leaves his world.[67]

After Proteus is defeated, Spider-Man 2099 remains with the Exiles to help them continue to fix damaged realities. After a couple more adventures, the Exiles are scattered across the multiverse and Miguel O'Hara winds up on a parallel world where he is found by a red-haired woman living on the beach, later revealed to be that world's Mary Jane Watson.[volume & issue needed] After an unspecified amount of time, the woman and Miguel fall in love and he remains on that world.[68] The Exiles locate Miguel but decide to leave him in the parallel world, deciding at least one of them should be allowed a happy, normal life.[volume & issue needed]

Years later, he and Mary Jane are still together when the attacks of Morlun during the Spider-Verse storyline are felt. Miguel learned about Morlun during Miguel's tenure with the Exiles, and senses Morlun is out there killing spiders. He gathers some of the Exiles' old equipment and prepares to flee to Earth-616, where Morlun was once killed. However, just as Miguel and Mary Jane are about to make the jump, Morlun arrives and kills that Miguel in front of the Miguel from the original timeline stranded in the present. Morlun disappears and the portal closes, leaving the Exiles' Miguel dead and the 616 Miguel desperate to find Peter Parker.[69]

Timestorm 2009–2099[edit]

In the 2009 miniseries Timestorm 2009–2099, O'Hara is younger than in his original version. His father is a scientist at Alchemax and Miguel himself is a high school student attending the Pym Academy.[70] Miguel lives with his father with no siblings, as opposed to the original incarnation in which he lives with his mother and brother Gabriel.[71]

Miguel received his powers in an accident caused by the Timestorm. At the time, he was attending a class on biological re-engineering in which he and his classmates were altering the genetic code of various bugs. When the Timestorm happened, his DNA was mixed with that of the spider he was working on. His powers are extremely similar to those of Peter Parker's, including a spider-sense, with the exception of Miguel's organic webbing, that is shot from the top of his hand. As opposed to the original incarnation of Miguel O'Hara, the Timestorm version does not appear to have razor sharp "talons" on his hands and feet.[70]

After gaining his powers, he creates his Spider-Man costume in a 3D printer and helps a time-lost Peter Parker battle Scorpion 2099 (Kron Stone, who was caught in the same accident as Miguel). The original Spider-Man advises him not to be a hero as it is too dangerous, and he instead uses his powers in a fighting arena against the Atlantean Human Torch.[71]

During the 2014 "Spider-Verse" storyline, the Timestorm version of Spider-Man 2099 was killed by Morlun.[63]

Secret Wars[edit]

During the Secret Wars storyline, the Battleworld domain of 2099 is where Alchemax reigns supreme. However, this is not the same reality as Earth-928 as Miguel is the legitimate son of Tyler Stone and goes by his birth name Miguel Stone. He is the morally dubious head of Alchemax which he took over from his handicapped father. Miguel presides over the Alchemax-sponsored Avengers consisting of Hercules and future versions of Iron Man (Sonny Frisco), Captain America (Roberta Mendez), Black Widow (Tania), and Hawkeye (Max).[72] When the teams comes into conflict with Defenders consisting of Hulk 2099, Silver Surfer, Valkyrie, Strange, and Roman the Sub-Mariner, Miguel offers them to go legitimate and work for Alchemax. The moment their leader Strange refuses, he orders the entire team detained at any cost.[73] The teams though end up having to work together in the end when Martin Hargood, the descendant of Baron Mordo breaks into Alchemax and frees the Dweller-in-Darkness to wreak havoc. Miguel learned that his father was the one who called the hit on Captain America and threw him out the window. The Avengers and the Defenders succeeded in stopping Mordo and re-banishing the Dweller-in-Darkness. Miguel decides to let the Defenders keep operating as good guys in an act of gratitude towards them.[74]

Warp Worlds[edit]

During the events of "Infinity Wars," Gamora used the Infinity Stones to fold the universe in half, resulting in the creation of Warp World, where characters and histories were merged. Spider-Man 2099 merged with Ravage 2099 to become Arachknight 2099 (who based himself on the hero Arachknight, an amalgamation of Spider-Man and Moon Knight). In this world, Miguel Ravage accessed primal arachnid DNA through a gene-surgery accident and fights using the "spider-beast" within.[75]

In other media[edit]

Television[edit]

  • A Spider-Man 2099 animated series was considered in 1999. However, it was not developed further due to Batman Beyond premiering earlier that year and "had covered that territory pretty well." Instead, creator Will Meugniot went ahead with Spider-Man Unlimited.[76]
  • Spider-Man 2099 makes his first animated appearance in Ultimate Spider-Man: Web Warriors, voiced by Freddy Rodriguez.[77] In this version, Spider-Man 2099 possesses a "spider-sense" like the original Spider-Man. He appears in the four-part storyline "The Spider-Verse". The first segment featuring him is exclusively animated in CGI, as opposed to the series' usual cel-shaded animation (although Spider-Man 2099 is cel-shaded when in Spider-Man's reality). In the episode "The Spider-Verse" Pt. 1, the Green Goblin uses the Siege Perilous, using Electro as a living power source, to travel to a futuristic dimension that takes place in the year 2099 to find the Spider-Man of that universe, in order to steal his DNA. However, the Spider-Man of "main" universe arrives in the dimension as well. Spider-Man is amazed at the advanced, futuristic New York City, before noticing a robbery at Alchemax by robotic drones. Spider-Man battles and defeats all but one drone. However, a Spider-Man dressed in a blue metallic costume comes in and trashes the robot right as it's about to attack Spider-Man. Spider-Man is amazed at Spider-Man 2099's costume, only for the latter to attack him. Miguel questions Peter if he is an android or a clone, which Spider-Man declines, stating he is a counterpart. Spider-Man 2099 is unconvinced and continues attacking Spider-Man. Peter continues to try and convince Miguel that he is a counterpart. Miguel finally relents, telling Peter that he "doesn't know who you're pretending to be". He tells Peter that "Spider-Man is just a legend that someone is trying to recreate....unsuccessfully". However, they are attacked by the Green Goblin. Spider-Man and Spider-Man 2099 battle the Goblin, though they fail to stop him from stealing a blood sample from Miguel. Having gotten what he sought in the future, Goblin blasts missiles at the building's top level to distract the Spider-Men before opening another time portal to escape. Spider-Man and Spider-Man 2099 stop it by interweaving their webs together in order to make a cable strong enough to keep the building from collapsing. Miguel thanks Peter for helping him, and Peter tells him that New York will always need a Spider-Man to protect it, and the two bid each other farewell. In the episode "The Spider-Verse" Pt. 4 summoned by the "main" Spider-Man, alongside several other alternate Spider-Men, Spider-Man Noir, Spyder-Knight, Spider-Girl, Spider-Ham and Ultimate Spider-Man to form the Web-Warriors in order to combat Spider-Goblin, an arachnid-esque form of the Goblin caused by injecting himself with a serum composed of every Spider-Man's DNA. The Web-Warriors battle Spider-Goblin, and with the help of Electro, manage to depower and turn him back into Norman Osborn. However, Electro then betrays them, merging himself with the Helicarrier, transforming it into a massive battle mecha. The Web-Warriors distract Electro while Spider-Girl and Spider-Ham manage to shut down the Helicarrier. After Spider-Man defeats Electro, Spider-Man 2099 returns to his dimension, along with the rest of the Web-Warriors.

Film[edit]

  • Spider-Man 2099 appears in Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse, voiced by Oscar Isaac.[78] He makes an appearance in the film's post-credits scene, along with his A.I. Lyla, where he learns from her about the events that have transpired during the film. He then decides to use his new device he has been working on: a watch that allows him to travel to different dimensions while maintaining molecular stability. He decides to use it to "start at the beginning" (Earth-67), which is revealed to be a universe based on the 1967 Spider-Man animated series. There, he immediately gets into an argument with that universe's Spider-Man, the style and topic of the argument referencing a popular meme.[79]
