In the Marvel 2099 universe, Spider-Man 2099 is the most popular hero around.
He’s the futuristic version of everyone’s favorite web-slinger and has some crazy plot lines.
While his origin story is slightly different from that of his Earth-616 counterpart, he still has all the classic Spider-Man powers we know and love.
He can shoot webs, cling to walls, and sense danger using his “spider-sense.” Plus, he’s got enhanced strength, agility, and reflexes.
Despite the differences, Spider-Man 2099 still faces many of the same problems as his counterpart in our world. He must deal with criminals, super villains, and the everyday challenges of being a superhero.

Miguel O’Hara, of Mexican and Irish descent, was a famous geneticist working for the Alchemax company. He was unaware he was the son of one of his bosses (with whom his mother had had an extramarital affair).
He was experimenting with merging the DNA of animals with people, inspired by the stories of the original Spider-Man.
In his experiments, one of the tests on humans resulted in the guinea pig’s death. O’Hara tried to quit the project but ended up falling into a trap.
His only chance to escape was to use his experiment on himself, and so Miguel ends up rewriting his genetic code and gains powers and physical changes.
From then on, Spider-Man 2099 became the sworn enemy of Alchemax, trying to prove the megacorporation’s internal corruption.
His base of operations was Nueva York City – the futuristic version of New York City, where the Latino were more integrated into the community.
He also has a virtual holographic assistant named Lyla (the name is an acronym for LYrate Lifeform Approximation), who helps him find crime hotspots and keeps him company as a friend.
A few years ago, after the Spidey saga, Marvel realized the character’s popularity and decided to bring him into their central universe, Earth-616.
Miguel was also working at Alchemax; however, this time, it was the initial version of the company that would become one of the tremendous genetic empires of the future.
During this period, he met some ancestors and fought side by side with other Spider-Men.
