    Default Cover Contest 9/18/2019 - 9/24/2019 : Across the Multiverse

    In 1992, Marvel introduced a new line of comics based on the future of the Marvel Universe. It was known as the Marvel 2099 and was launched with Peter David and Rick Leonardi's Spider-Man 2099. Other titles soon followed like Punisher 2099, Doom 2099, Ravage 2099 later followed by X-Men 2099 and Hulk 2099. The line lasted for about 4 years before a combination of flagging sales and Marvel's financial woes eventually took its' toll and the line eventually was no more. There was also the MC2 universe that was another line that took place in the future with Mayday Parker in the long running Spider-Girls series, along with Fantastic Five and A-Next with an adult Cassie Lang.

    This year Marvel is going to release a new set of 2099 comics. I am not as knowledgeable about DC's equivalent but I am sure you are all aware of which ongoing titles or limited series those would be. I would prefer it be something more that a one-shot story. But if people vote for it, so be it So basically any comic series that does not take place in what was the current MU or DCU.

    I am not clear on what this contest is? A title that doesn't take place in the main Universe of Marvel or DC?
    There came a time when the Old Gods died! The Brave died with the Cunning! The Noble perished locked in battle with unleashed Evil! It was the last day for them! An ancient era was passing in fiery holocaust!

    Exactly. The MC2 comics and the 2099 comics were off in their own little section of the Marvel comics. For example, In 2099 Miguel O'Hara was Spider-Man, Jake Gallows was the Punisher, etc.

    Sure. Those sound like they would qualify. Or will even count Marvel's Heroes Reborn series done when Image took over certain titles for a year, namely Iron Man, Fantastic Four, Avengers and Captain America.

    Set adrift in the multiverse
    By the whims of fate
    And thrall to the demiurge
    We all await escape




    A character design I loved from this skip week event.
