SPIDER-MAN 2099: EXODUS Will Introduce A New X-Men 2099 Team And You Can Get A First Look Here!

Steve Orlando and Kim Jacinto will introduce a new team of X-Men 2099 in this August's Spider-Man 2099: Exodus, and we now have a first look at the eclectic members of this future group of mutants...

Marvel Comics is currently in the midst of celebrating the 30-year anniversary of its 2099 imprint with Spider-Man 2099: Exodus, a thrilling new limited series that's revolutionizing the far-future setting for a new age.

Written by Steve Orlando, the saga kicks off when a Celestial falls to Earth, providing a glimmer of hope to the grim dystopian world that fan-favourite hero Spider-Man 2099, Miguel O’Hara, must protect at all costs. Following Spider-Man's mission, each issue of the series switches focus to a different team or character, introducing new heroes along the way such as the 2099 versions of Black Widow, Loki, and Winter Soldier.

In August's Spider-Man 2099: Exodus #5, Orlando teams up with artist Kim Jacinto to debut the new X-Men 2099. Joining classic characters such as Cerebra, Krystalin, and Bloodhawk will be new X-Men, some of who have adopted the names of their legendary predecessors.

Spider-Man 2099: Exodus #5 reveals that at the epicenter 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?

"From the comics to the toys, X-Men 2099 was nothing more than the coolest stuff for me when I was just dipping my toe into reading monthly comics, launching right as I switched over from reading whatever I could from flea market back issue bins, to finally having a comic store and following books month to month," Orlando says of his love for 2099.

"The world was desolate and engrossing, the team was both familiar and different - a ragtag chosen family of mutants just struggling to survive. So, to celebrate that for 2099's 30th Anniversary is just kickass. To get to work with some of the first X-Men I ever met? Just kickass."

Below is some action-packed new interior artwork along with Jacinto's design sheets that feature the new 2099 X-Men including Cyclops, Northstar, Phoenix, and more. Spider-Man 2099: Exodus #5 swings into comic book stores on August 3!
