Sliney talked about the book and made a comparison to Captain America. “Miguel is now trapped in the present day Marvel Universe, so straight away we have to deal with the fact that in the greatest of Marvel traditions, we have a hero out of time. I'm looking forward to drawing that iconic costume in the surroundings of some of New York's gritty and textured looking neighborhoods.” When asked what Spider-Man 2099 will call himself now that he'll be in the world with the original Spider-Man, Peter David replied, “How about ‘S-Man?’” David added the book will kick off with someone trying to "remove Miguel violently" from the era. It'll also address the people behind Spider Slayers being sold to other countries and dive into the Spider-Verse event.
