Before the secret about THE SUPERIOR SPIDER-MAN's 'identity' was revealed, Dan Slott jokingly lead people to assume Miguel O'Hara, aka Spider-Man 2099, would be the main character featured in the Marvel NOW! Spider-Man title.
Once it was revealed who SUPERIOR SPIDER-MAN really was, Slott apologized but back in January, he did confirm that Spider-Man 2099 would indeed be appearing in SUPERIOR SPIDER-MAN. We just didn't know when.
Today at the Superior Spider-Man panel at C2E2, it was announced that Spider-Man 2099 would be appearing in SUPERIOR SPIDER-MAN #17. The issue will be written by Dan Slott with art by Ryan Stegman. The variant cover to the issue (seen above) is by Olivier Coipel.
There is a big threat headed towards Spider-Man and the heroes from two universes are needed to try to stop it. It was also mentioned that this is the Spider-Man story that has been building since the beginning of Big Time back in 2010.
SUPERIOR SPIDER-MAN #17 is on sale in September.
