Spider-Man 2099: Exodus #1

Starting with the arachnid is always good, but it won’t be with Peter Parker in this case. Today we bring a story of the futuristic version of Spider-Man, Miguel O’Hara. This reboot of the character has managed to earn his place among the fandom, something very challenging for such an iconic Marvel character.

In this issue, O’Hara will have a particular sidekick, the Winter Soldier. Many will think he’s a Bucky 2.0, but that’s not the case. The new version of the Winter Soldier has all the necessary ingredients for a successful reboot. It retains the most distinctive aspects of the original Bucky while maintaining a personality of its own. It is undoubtedly a joy to see these two characters in action; they complement each other perfectly, and their stories are well justified. Behind this story is Steve Orlando writing and Dave Wachter’s drawing. Also noteworthy is the cover by J. P. Mayer.

PART I
INTRODUCING THE WINTER SOLDIER OF 2099 After a massive celestial body crashes in the wastelands outside New York, a new Garden of Eden emerges from the crash site, offering unimaginable power. And it’s not just THE CABAL that’s eager to control the Garden. Everyone has something to gain in Paradise…including WINTER SOLDIER 13. The Winter Soldier, who was rescued from the black market as a child and raised on mad science, is bent on revenge and rebirth. But what’s really in the Garden?

This new story from Marvel Comics is divided into three, Fall and Rise, Mayor For Hire and Cleaning House. Each story is written and dubbed by different artists, making this issue very diverse in content. The first Fall and Rise will see Daredevil on the heels of Kingpin, enlisting the help of Reed Richards. In the second story, titled Mayor For Hire, Luke Cage will take a significant role, as he is the city’s mayor. The last story, Cleaning House, is a much faster-paced, action-packed story, which Vecchio pulls off brilliantly. As Cage and a guest star battle the leftover Thunderbolts.

FALL AND RISE / MAYOR FOR HIRE / CLEANING HOUSE.
After one of Marvel’s most visceral stories, New York City is remade and reinforced, if not in Wilson Fisk’s image, at least in his spirit. After a battle that nearly tears the city and its citizens apart, New York’s superheroes have no choice but to try to adapt to the dangerous new paradigm they find themselves under, with eight million people against them! The shocking outcome of Marvel’s New York City mayoral race, Elektra’s fate as the Woman Without Fear, and more exciting developments will rise from the ashes of Kingpin’s takeover.

THE DEVIL’S REIGN TIE-IN
