After Spider-Man: Into The Spider-Verse Oscar-winning, revealing Miles Morales origin story as he’s thrust into a larger multiverse of Spider-heroes, it’s no surprise that the popular film is about to get a sequel. Furthermore, it looks like Miguel O’Hara will have a bigger role following his brief and mysterious appearance in the first film’s post-credits scene.
While Miles Morales (Shameik Moore) fights to bring his new Spider allies home to their respective realities in the first film, it looks like there will be a new adventure on the horizon with The Return of Spider-Man (Hailee Steinfeld). Visiting Miles in his room in the new trailer for Into the Spider-Verse 2, it looks like Gwen is looking to reconnect while also needing his help with some new multiverse problems. (although Miles seems to have been identified).
Miles’ Spider-Man will soon be flying across the multiverse, leaving his own reality for the first time in this new trailer (though he’s not alone for long). Brooklyn’s Spider-Man is suddenly attacked by another Spider-Man, Spider-Man 2099, a new Spider-Man variant whose target is still unknown. And here’s an explanation of Spider-Man 2099, his powers, abilities, and what role he might play in the upcoming Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse.
Spider-Man 2099’s powers and abilities explained
In the Marvel comics, Miguel O’Hara, aka Spider-Man 2099, was created in 1992 by Peter David and Rick Leonardi. Described as Spider-Man of Tomorrow, this variant will soon debut in Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse 2 living in a reality set in the future 2099. Defending the city of Nueva York, Miguel work to fight against the corrupt corporation known as Alchemax as it increasingly takes over the city. However, Alechemax is where Miguel got his powers when his genes were forced to fuse with the DNA of a spider, making him 50% spider-man.
Miguel grows nails on his feet and hands and can cling to and climb walls like a spider. He also grows larger claws on his arms. Furthermore, Spider-Man 2099’s web is organic and shoots out of his wrist, no different from Tobey Maguire’s Spider-Man in the Sam Raimi-directed trilogy. He also has fangs that allow him to paralyze his enemies with a non-lethal venom.
Recent years have seen Miguel O’Hara’s Spider-Man 2099 become the protagonist of the Marvel’s Spider-Verse comic book events as well as become a hero of the modern era of the Marvel Universe known as the Marvel Universe. Hero era.
As such, these mean he’s set to have a major role in Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse, perhaps becoming a major Spider-Man variant helping Miles Morales navigate the multiverse. different realities and other Spider-heroes they might encounter, far beyond those with whom Miles collaborated in the first Spider-Verse movie.
Spider-Verse 2: Why did Spider-Man 2099 attack Miles Morales?
One of the most exciting moments of the new Spider-Verse 2 trailer isn’t just Miles venturing beyond his own reality, but that he’s quickly attacked by 2099 Spider-Man. Why did Miguel have a rivalry with Miles in the first place? Maybe they’ll see each other sooner in the sequel before this brawl and tension has been created. It’s also possible that Miguel’s insight into the future could see him trying to stop Miles Morales’ Spider-Man from doing something that could have dire consequences. And most likely Alchemax will be the main reason for this.
Not only is the future Alchemax responsible for Miguel’s powers in the comics, but Into the Spider-Verse’s version of Miles was also bitten by a spider native to this corporation. Likewise, Alechemax is currently the company to which Oliva Octavius is employed as their lead scientist, who is working with Kingpin to create the Super Collider as a means to bring his family back. from another universe. As a result, Miles and Miguel have a lot in common although that could also be the driving force behind their conflict in the upcoming Spider-Verse sequel.
Having Oscar Isaac join the sequels as a lead is sure to be interesting as the larger multiverse is explored. It’s also possible that Miles will reunite with the Spider friends he met in the first Spider-Verse movie like Spider-Gwen, Spider-Ham, Peter B. Parker, etc.
