Chris and Chandler leap to the year 2099! Back in 1993, Marvel made a huge push to show what the dark future holds with titles about X-Men, Punisher, Spider-Man, Hulk, Doom and more – all set in the 2099 universe. Today’s comics now come out of the 2099 universe with Steve Orlando writing in Brimstone Love and Cerebra in the Krakoan era. It’s a great time to look back on X-Men 2099 and see what we may have forgotten about 1993.
X-Men 2099 #1 was released in October 1993. During that same month:
- The best film at the time: the wrecker
- The best song at the time: “Dreamlover” by Mariah Carey
- The Nightmare Before Christmas released October 31, 1993
- Michael Jordan retired for the first time
- Ace of Base’s Earworm Song “The Sign” Released
