Improper Order in introduction[edit]

"The first three titles launched — Doom 2099, Punisher 2099, and Spider-Man 2099 — starred futuristic takes on pre-existing characters. The later Ravage 2099 featured an all-new superhero, scripted for several months by Stan Lee." The publish order of the first four books was Spider-Man, Ravage, Doom, and Punisher. The cover art for each one backs this up. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 173.89.242.67 (talk) 16:14, 27 October 2011 (UTC)

Cap 2099[edit]

Captain America 2099 was not the original (Steve Rogers). In Ghost Rider 2099 #18-19, the body of the Steve Rogers was found in a submerged Naval Base.

2099: World of Tomorrow[edit]

Marvel 2099 links to 2099: World of Tomorrow (which is the official name of the series according to both issues of the series that I checked). Unfortunately info about the series is currently at 2099 World of Tomorrow (which ironically starts with "2099: World of Tomorrow is [..]"). Any objections to moving the article FROM 2099 World of Tomorrow TO 2099: World of Tomorrow? --EarthFurst 09:23, 28 April 2006 (UTC)

Sounds good to me. Ragdoll 19:19, 29 April 2006 (UTC)
Thank you Ragdoll, the wikipage has been moved/renamed. --EarthFurst 23:17, 3 May 2006 (UTC)

Old Dudes[edit]

Was there anyone in the 2099 universe who was the same person from regular 616 time, but 100 years older? Perhaps a list of those people would be nice? -- Bumnut 10:19, 7 May 2006 (UTC)

There's nobody that I can recall, except for maybe the Valhalla cadre. I don't remember the storyline too well, though. This universe seemed, for the most part, to keep pretty separate from 616, unlike other future tales like Guardians of the Galaxy.
O'course, I only read X-Men 2099.

2099[edit]

I was a big fan of this .... imprint, especially Doom. In fan letters there was an issue that came up enough that I think it is worth mention in trivia. An editor commented that the majority of fans asked after the point where the series was over a year old that "When is it going to become 3000?". He then went on to say something about how it raised alarming questions in the minds of the people at Marvel about the sad state that the American schools were in. I'll look it up in a week or so.Abrynkus 20:32, 28 November 2006 (UTC)

It is an amusing bit of trivia; I remember this, too, and I think it was in a December issue of X-Men 2099 (I can't remember, but I'm guessing it was in the Bullpen section). I don't know that it's that notable, though. —Ragdoll 22:12, 29 November 2006 (UTC)

Re sort list[edit]

I think that the list of title would be better sorted by first issue publication date rather than by date. Does anyone agree/disagree? If I don't get any negative reponses, I'll do it in a couple days. -Joltman 16:28, 25 May 2007 (UTC)

List of issues[edit]

Does anyone have a list of the issues that comprised The Fall of the Hammer crossover? Dvulture 00:41, 5 August 2007 (UTC)

In the paragraph "The 2099 world has been seen occasionally since, most notably in Peter David's "Future Tense" storyline in Captain Marvel, which revisited both Spider-Man 2099 and the alternate future of the Maestro that David created in The Incredible Hulk: Future Imperfect, explaining a plot point which had been left dangling since David had abruptly left Spider-Man.", the reference to Peter David quitting Spider-Man refers to his quitting Spider-Man 2099 in protest to Joey Cavalieri's firing ("In 1996 when Marvel, during a cost-cutting exercise, fired Cavalieri, many of the 2099 creators (including Peter David and Warren Ellis) quit the line in protest.") or to some run of his in one of the current Spider-Man's titles at the time?

New 2099 Book[edit]

Sales not tanking[edit]

Hey, I read this article and it does not add up to memory. I collected comics at the time and Wizard, several of these titles were in the top 20, some in the top 10, beating their Main continuity peers. I do not have sales chart records to back up mememory though as my wizards are gone. Once the series were announced as canceled, well the sales did fall off and that conglomorated series that was given to a bunch of amateurs as a school project failed miserably because of what it was. It seemed as though Marvel killed a popular line because it was more popular than their mainline. Anyone have figures to back me up or the article's version of events? — Preceding unsigned comment added by Thesnappysneezer (talkcontribs) 06:39, 9 December 2010 (UTC)

Death of Ravage 2099[edit]

The death of Ravage 2099 was not ordered by the Captain America impostor and did not hapen in Apocalypse 2099 one shot. Ravage vas presumably killed in the last issue of his own series by Doom 2099. If I remember correctly, Doom 2099 encased Ravage 2099 (along with the island Hellrock) in adamantium and sent to space. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 37.219.148.138 (talk) 09:35, 15 August 2012 (UTC)

Good call. Unfortunately I have only about half of Ravage, but to my knowledge you are correct. StryyderG (talk) 17:43, 15 August 2012 (UTC)
