Spidey’s Gonna Party Like It’s 2099


The third dimension of that Spider-Man: Shattered Dimensions game has been revealed, and it’s 2099. Seeing the 2099 costume rendered like that is pretty awesome, in my opinion, but I’m not really up on my Marvel 2099 lore. Is that bad guy he’s fighting the Goblin? More importantly, what do you think the last dimension is? I think 1602 would be too different from the other three — in terms of programming alone — to be doable; and I doubt stuff like House of M and Earth-X are big enough to make it. Honestly, I think the only other Marvel Elseworlds well-known enough to be included is Marvel Zombies, about which I have mixed feelings.
