As part of the companies 100th Anniversary (you’ll have to figure the math out on that one), Marvel Comics sent Major Spoilers an early look at the 100th Anniversary Special – Spider-Man #1 that shows Spider-Man in the year 2061.
We’re jumping into a story already in progress for this issue,’” explains writer Sean Ryan in an interview with Marvel.com. “We’re treating this issue as if it was the last issue in a long arc that has been running in the Spider-Man books for a while. This issue sees the story coming to an end. The idea of the story being that the symbiote is back, but it’s been infused with technology that gives its host the power to plug in to the grid and control anything connected to it. And this being the future, that’s just about everything.
