But the accident couldn't have happened to a better candidate, and Miguel learns that he really does have a natural urge to do the right thing. There is a 5 part cross over around the first third of the book that does go on way too long and drag down the overall enjoyment for me. With a job at Parker Industries, a stable relationship, and uncertain of what impact his actions will have on the future, Miguel O’Hara has decided that it’s time to hang up the webs and retire from being Spider-Man.

Miguel O’Hara, his DNA rewritten in an attempt to escape his employer Alchemax, has gained amazing powers — and become the brand new Spider-Man! Now, heroes from both eras – including the time lost Captain America 2099 – must join his fight to prevent the disaster that left 2099 in ruins! Read more about the condition New: A new, unread, unused book in perfect condition with no missing or damaged pages.But sadly it feels like Peter David got short notice that 2099 would be ending because while few plot points wrap up there's like 5 or 6 that didn't. Miguel O'Hara, his DNA rewritten in an attempt to escape his employer Alchemax, has gained amazing powers - and become the brand new Spider-Man! I never know if I'll like something I don't know much about, but similar to The Question I read last year for DC, sometimes a unknown helps when reading something like this for the first time and loving 80% of it. I also think the crossover Fall of the Hammer was an interesting idea but filled with too much fluff- I would just read the 2 Spider-Man 2099 issues next time I read this and not miss anything.

Unfortunately, Peter David left the series before the last two issues were written and things go off the rails. I know there was a fair deal of disappointment over Miguel taking the seat as CEO of Alchemax, but with the way things were turning out in the book, if Peter David had been allowed to keep going at it, we might've seen a deepening realization in Miguel that this was never going to work, even with him having good intentions. Certain items can take longer to source than the estimated week, particularly during busy trading periods and may take longer to arrive at our warehouse. For most of 44 issues, Miguel O'Hara's trials and tribulations are in his hands and remain engaging and interesting: and notably un-Peter Parker-like.The death of Dina, Tyler Stone just never dying, Gabi’s reveal, and the sheer introduction of Xina and ensuing love triangle make this feel more like any other comic book and less like its own entity. Miguel O’Hara, his DNA rewritten in an attempt to escape his employer Alchemax, has gained amazing powers – and become the new Spider-Man! As you can probably tell with my individual volume ratings that I really enjoyed 80% of Spider-Man 2099. And sadly after this, there's not much more 2099 till later 2000's and from what I understand that's Miguel stuck in the present time, not the 2099 time period. Miguel is a more lethal, if you have to die you have to die, type hero that I absolutely love and makes sense in this darker and morally gray world they all live in.

Miguel is not drawn to heroism in response to tragic consequences from self-centered action, but he's definitely drawn to self-centeredness. And as frustrating as he finds it, he knows that since he's able to do these amazing things no one else can there are people who look to him for help.

As mentioned in the other review at the time of writing this, there are unresolved threads (bummer) due to, likely, a lot of the Spidey titles winding down and with reboots and all. But he’s become stranded in the present day, when the omnipresent future corporation Alchemax has only just been formed – and Miguel has a chance to stop its corruption before it starts! Unfortunately, the story and art quality begin to fall apart as the story continues, it loses its spark and originality which drew me to it in a desperate attempt to drum up further drama to keep the story going. Miguel had no interest being a hero but thanks to the company he worked for, he couldn't let them do all their shady shit.

Miguel O’Hara, his DNA rewritten in an attempt to escape his employer Alchemax, has gained amazing powers – and become the brand new Spider-Man!It just started to get sloppy towards the end due to Marvel having money issues in the late 90s and it starts to show in the story as well. It's kind of silly, dumb, and the issues outside of Spidy and Doom are pretty horrible if I'm being honest.
