In his limited series Spider-Man 2099: Exodus, Steve Orlando promised to introduce a large number of new 2099 characters. However, the author also guaranteed that many of the original Marvel 2099 characters, including X-Men 2099, will return. The series finale of Spider-Man 2099: Exodus, which comes out in August, will feature both the new and old X-Men from the 2099 future. Exodus is celebrating the 30th anniversary of the 2099 Marvel imprint.
The authors of the issue are Steve Orlando, Kim Jacinto, Jay David Ramos, and Clayton Cowles. The official synopsis of Spider-Man 2099 reads: Exodus #5 is described as It reveals that at the epicentre of the Celestial’s Garden is a mutant, somehow fallen from the stars. The nomadic X-Men fight to claim the Garden as their new home but will Spider-Man respect their claim? Or will he try to take the Garden for humans? And even if they can co-exist, what’ll Spider-Man and the X-Men do about the Cabal Sentinels breathing down their necks?
Miguel O’Hara, who travelled between the present and his home in the future, was Spider-Man 2099, the series’ breakout star. Fans have already met new versions of Black Widow, Loki, and the Winter Soldier in each issue of Spider-Man 2099: Exodus and the X-Men will soon join them.
The new batch of mutants, many of whom use the codenames of their iconic predecessors like Cyclops, Northstar, Phoenix, and more, will join the classic X-Men 2099 characters like Cerebra, Krystalin, and Bloodhawk. A better look at the new X-Men 2099 team can be found in the covers and the cover art for Spider-Man 2099: Exodus #5.
The X-Men 2099 previously appeared in the 35-issue X-Men 2099 series by John Francis Moore and Ron Lim, which debuted in 1993. The characters have appeared in a number of different series, including Timestorm 2009-2099 from 2009 and X-Men Blue from 2017. Spider-Man 2099: Exodus, which debuted in May, features Miguel O’Hara and a variety of other heroes in a futuristic world after the creation of a new, incredibly powerful Garden of Eden.
