    That leads to an interesting discussion about "What should an updated Spider-Man 2099 costume look like?" Like, I imagine if the 2099 line was started today, the main roster would look somewhat different. I would surmise, for example, that Doom's armer would look more like his Infamous stuff, to go along with the more heroic theme.

    Oh, yeah, definitely. It's like what happened with Peter Parker, that the "blue" in the costume was originally supposed to be black with blue highlights and shading to give it depth, but later artists assumed the suit was supposed to be blue because of all the blue highlights and shading and thus colored it blue. I think Miguel's guest appearance in Peter David's Captain Marvel #27-30 was the only time Miguel's original suit was actually colored black.

    And given the primacy of the Avengers today, we probably would get an Avengers 2099 series. Secret Wars 2099 gave us a good idea of how Peter David might update/revamp 2099 and most if not all the characters from there carried over into the post-Secret Wars Spider-Man 2099, which was fine by me because I enjoyed Secret Wars 2099, especially Captain America 2099. As for Miguel's costume . . . I liked the post-Secret Wars suit, but it would have been better if it'd been just black and red with no white, since the white clashed somewhat with the red.

    Anyone see the Feb solicits? Any chance of Cap being in 2099? Or will this be yet another new future?

    I hope it's 2099, but I'm not expecting it to be.

    Can't remember where I first saw it, but I always htought this would have been a nice 2099 suit.

    The 60s cartoon set that in stone. The trope Older Than They Think comes to mind.

    Thanks. Would've gone with B5, but like I said, I did actually like the costume design Kris Anka and the editors settled on. I think it's just that it looked a lot better on Francesco Mattina's covers for the series than it did in the interior art by Will Sliney (no offense to Sliney, who otherwise did excellent with Spider-Man 2099 and currently Ben Reilly: The Scarlet Spider).

    Good point there. We do owe the 60s cartoon a lot for putting Spider-Man in the public consciousness, even with certain . . . quirks.
