MANILA — A new Filipino character is joining Marvel's X-Men 2099 roster.

In an Instagram post, comic artist Kim Jacinto revealed his character art for the character Tulkas who will make his debut on Spider-Man 2099: Exodus number 5. 

"Tulkas is a Filipino Brawler with powers that make him tough!" he said in the caption.

Written by Steve Orlando and brought to life by an all-star lineup of artists including Paul Fry, David Wachter, Marco Castiello, Ze Carlos, Alessandro Mircola, and Kim Jacinto, the new Spider-Man 2099: Exodus series takes Miguel O' Hara on an epic journey across all corners of the 2099 Marvel Universe. 

Each issue will shift focus to a new character or team, debuting exciting new characters such as 2099 Winter Soldier, a new version of 2099 Loki, and new members of the 2099 X-Men.
