About this deal

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.

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!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! Miguel O'Hara is flawed character that undergoes his own unique suffering and hardships to become a better person through his time as Spider-Man.

But when a dangerous new threat appears and puts his new life in jeopardy, he's got no choice but to don some new threads and tackle the problem the only way he knows how: head on! Miguel O'Hara is definitely NOT Peter Parker - your Friendly Neighborhood Spider-Man - and that is part of what makes him and his series so great.Unfortunately, Peter David left the series before the last two issues were written and things go off the rails. 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. 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 not drawn to heroism in response to tragic consequences from self-centered action, but he's definitely drawn to self-centeredness. I understand there was plenty of drama behind the scenes (as per usual with comic books) so it makes sense why earlier plot points were super randomly brought up again at the very end, without any warning.

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. Read more about the condition New: An item that is still in its original shrink wrap from the manufacturer and the original manufacturer’s seal (if applicable) has not been removed.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. 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.

This was pretty fun overall and didn’t really fall apart until around the last 2 or 3 issues with the Atlantis stuff. This amount includes seller specified domestic postage charges as well as applicable international postage, dispatch, and other fees.

I'm a big Spidey fan and will try to stay objective, but the thrill of reading this full series cannot be overstated for me. This omnibus collects all 46 issues of the original run of Spider-Man 2099 plus a few extra stories from the wider world of the Marvel 2099-verse.

Spider-Man 2099, Lady Spider, and the six-armed Spider-Man are on the run for their lives from the dangerously ravenous Inheritors!
