Fresh off his breakout role in Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse, Miguel O’Hara will star in a host of all-new comic book adventures next year, including a series by his legendary co-creator, writer Peter David.
Launching in March, Symbiote Spider-Man 2099 will serve as the long-awaited next epic chapter in David’s hit Symbiote Spider-Man saga, which helped usher in Marvel Comics’ wave of retro series revisiting milestone runs and series. Joining him on his triumphant return will be artist Rogê Antônio, known for his recent gut-wrenching work on Carnage.
The five-issue series promises to take fans back to the iconic world of Marvel 2099 where Miguel O’Hara becomes the host of a terrifying new symbiote.
Set your time circuits ahead to the techno-dystopian future of 2099! Miguel O’Hara, A.K.A. Spider-Man 2099, is facing a hostile takeover – of his own body! Kron Stone, the Venom of 2099, wages an all-out assault on Alchemax, and the only hope of stopping him lies with the power awakened by a top-secret project gone terribly wrong. What must Miguel sacrifice to seal the bond with his new symbiote – his body? His mind? His very soul?!
This should be a fun adventure for the character and one which shows a new side of Miguel. The 2099 mythology continues to expand and, while there are other futures many fans would like to spend time in (bring back May “Mayday” Parker already, Marvel), this is still up there with the best them.
Spider-Man 2099, also known as Miguel O’Hara, was created by Peter David and Rick Leonardi. Debuting in 1992, Miguel is a geneticist in a dystopian future, accidentally acquiring spider-like abilities. Clad in a sleek, futuristic suit, he swings through the high-tech streets of Nueva York and stands out from Peter Parker thanks to his unique powers, including talons, enhanced senses, and the ability to glide.
Despite hailing from a distant future (at least when he was created), Miguel maintains the core principles of Spider-Man, balancing heroics with personal struggles. Making his big screen debut in 2018’s Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse, he later took centre stage in this past June’s Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse and has yet to appear in live-action.
