Miguel’s new story begins in Spider-Man 2099: Exodus – Alpha #1. After a Celestial falls to Earth and brings “a glimmer of hope to this broken world,” Miguel sees this as a chance for real change. With this, he sets off an an adventure that brings him everywhere from Asgard to the home of mutant kind. Along the way, he will also meet a host of new heroes, including 2099’s female Winter Soldier, a new version of Loki, and several additional members of the X-Men. Unfortunately, he must also deal with a mysterious organization called The Cabal. And whoever its members are, they have their own villainous agenda for the Celestial’s gifts.

“Roving the spinner-racks and trading cards of the early 1990s, the world of 2099 was my first future dystopia, its neon haunted visions of Marvel’s future close to my heart,” said Orlando in a new statement. “And at the forefront of that future, fighting as anyone with his name always has, for the everyday folks of the future? Miguel O’Hara. Spider-Man 2099. So here, decades later, celebrating the 30th Anniversary of 2099 is a dream come true! And there was never any question who’d be the face of this celebration…your friendly, futuristic Spider-Man!” Orlando said. “And for Miguel, this fight is bigger than ever, since it’s his first time going toe to toe with one of Spider-Man’s greatest villains. Let’s make history together in Spider-Man 2099: Exodus — and lead the people of 2099 into a new tomorrow!”
