2099 Reading Order: The Original World of Tomorrow (1992-1997)

Originally intended to launch as a one-shot graphic novel ‘Marvel World of Tomorrow’ under Stan Lee and John Byrne, Marvel’s ‘futureverse’ project instead became a line of 2099 titles set in a dystopian future of Earth-928. A new ‘Age of Heroes’ would dawn in this corporately-controlled America as future versions of pre-existing characters would begin emerge and tackle the threats of this darker world. Enter Spider-Man, the Punisher, Doom and completely new character Ravage who all found themselves victims of the corrupt mega-corporation Alchemax and their ilk. Of course the line wouldn’t be complete without the X-Men while the monstrous future Hulk would make his debut in the line’s quarterly series.

Peter David’s Spider-Man 2099 series ended up being the stand-out series, with Doom 2099 a distant second and the rest so far below. But that wouldn’t stop Marvel Comics from expanding the line of titles in the years that followed. Characters and titles would come and go in the years that followed, until the final tale from this timeline was told in 1997. Following that, other incarnations of the world of 2099 have appeared and there’s been some confusion over which are set in Earth-928 and which are divergent timelines. For now, this entry will focus on the original years (or year, seeing as we never quite reach New Year’s Day 2100) and pick up those other timelines in future reading orders.

Must Reads: Story arcs marked with a ✔ are must-read stories from this time period, along with any key related stories and often-forgotten tales that are worth a read.

Anthology Issues: When an issue contains multiple stories, the relevant story is denoted with square brackets. For example, [2/5] refers to the second story of the five stories in that issue, so you don’t need to read the other four.

Additional Note: While I’ve noted each of the four primary titles here as the first appearances of each characters, Marvel previewed the first eight pages of Ravage 2099 in Marvel Comics Presents #117, Doom 2099 in Marvel Comics Presents #118 and Spider-Man 2099 in Amazing Spider-Man #365. This technically makes each other those issues their first appearances.

  1. Awesome guide! The only question I have is where does Doom 2099 #10 go? I couldn’t find it when I was looking through the list .

    1. Thanks so much Jason! We did indeed miss Doom 2099 #10 (it shouuld’ve been on the run from #5-10). Feel free to let us know if you have any suggestions for more reading orders you would like to see!

      1. Another one that I see that’s missing is X-Force 92. It’s the issue where Halloween Jack kidnaps Domino.

      2. The third story from Spider-Man 25, featuring the Net Prophet, is also listed twice.

  2. Cheers for picking those up, Jason! I wasn’t planning on including anything that takes place after the original run, but I guess the Halloween Jack appearance doesn’t really fit anywhere else! An amend is on its way!
