WHO IS SPIDER-MAN 2099?

In Spider-Man 2099 (1992) #1, we learn Spider-Man‘s origin story. Originally, Miguel O’hara was a scientist for Alchemax. In fact, he worked for the Corporate Raider Program. Importantly, their objective was to alter the genetic code in order to grant humans superhuman abilities. After a failed unethical test on a convict to grant him Spider-Man’s powers, Miguel resigns. Before he departs, his boss Tyler Stone drops Rapture into his drink. It is a legal hallucinogenic that alters human DNA.

In crisis and an addict, Miguel decides to use the Corporate Raider Program. And he plans to use his DNA implanted on test subjects in order to revert his genetic code. But his rival Aaron Delgato is watching unbeknownst to him. Accidentally, he sets the controls to merge Miguel’s DNA with a spider. Incredibly, the scientist survives though he appears as a dazed, clawed and fanged creature. Soon, Miguel uses a Day of the Dead attire to fashion a Spider-Man. Previously, he is introduced fighting the Corporate Raider Program.

THE SPIDER-MAN 2099’S SUIT

DURABILITY

To begin, the suit was created from the Unstable Molecule. On Earth-616, this synthetic material was discovered by Reed Richards. In fact, it was used to create fabric that could adapt to a certain environment. Indeed, it can mimic its wearer’s physical super powers. For example, it can mimic Invisible Woman‘s invisibility and turn invisible. On Earth-928, Miguel can use his claws without ripping the costume.

WEB CAPE

Perhaps, the suit’s most incredible feature. At first, Miguel acquired a torn piece of glider cloth from a Thor worshipper. Later, he attached it to his costume as a cape-like cloth. In fact, the web cape is very useful since it grants Spider-Man 2099 the ability to glide over rooftops.
