Spider-Man 2099’s Miguel O’Hara to Crossover with Superior Spider-Man

CBR reveals that Dan Slott and Ryan Stegman are hard at work in getting the very first crossover between Superior Spider-Man (Otto Octavius) and the fan favorite Spider-Man 2099, Miguel O’Hara.

Here’s a little excerpt from the interview that CBR did with the Superior Spider-Man writer:

CBR: Let’s move onto the story itself. Dan, are you able to talk at all about any details?

Slott: Right now, the title for the arc is “Necessary Evil.” Here, we have the Superior Spider-Man, who is not your standard kind of hero, especially after what happens in “Superior Spider-Man” #9. There’s just a way this character has about doing things that are in stark contrast to how you’d think a normal hero would react.

This time out, Spider-Man 2099 coming from the future will very much be like a character from one of the “Terminator” movies showing up. What he perceives to be good or bad is based on what effect it will have on the future, which means that stuff in the present that appears on the surface to be good might have terrible ramifications — and vice versa.

This means you start running into all the paradoxes of, “Would you kill Hitler?” and then the worst paradox of, “Would you kill Hitler as a baby?” There’s always the danger in time travel stories of defining what is good and what is evil.
