Marvel 2099 Reading Order (Earth-928, home of Miguel O’Hara)

  • by

Welcome to the future! Like Ultimate Marvel, Marvel 2099 was an imprint of comic books published by Marvel Comics, introducing the readers to futuristic takes on pre-existing characters. 2099 is a world where there are no active superheroes.

The present-day Marvel continuity is referred to as an “Age of Heroes” that abruptly ended in a catastrophe a century before that also set back society. This is a dystopia where North America is a corporate police state ruled by a few huge megacorporations, mostly Alchemax. But a new Heroic Age will soon begin…

Developed by Stan Lee and John Byrne, the imprint was launched in 1992 with four titles: Doom 2099, Punisher 2099, Ravage 2099 and Spider-Man 2099. Soon enough, the line expanded to include 2099 Unlimited, Fantastic Four 2099, Ghost Rider 2099, Hulk 2099, X-Men 2099, and X-Nation 2099. 

The nineties were not a peaceful time for the comics industry, and in early 1996, the imprint paid the price of those turbulences when editor Joey Cavalieri was fired during a cost-cutting exercise.

Many of the 2099 creators quit the line in protest and it will not take long before the imprint flounders, leading to title cancellation, are replaced by 2099: World of Tomorrow before being officially concluded with a one-shot published in March 1998.

Since this ending, this 2099 world has been seen occasionally since, as recently as 2019 in a Spider-Man event called 2099, with a series of one-shots to celebrate the 25th anniversary of Marvel 2099.
