About this deal

From Miguel's soon to be wife Dana, to Xena, to his brother, everyone gets to shine in new and exciting ways each arc.

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. 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. 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. 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.That's some real dark stuff there, but it's not presented in an angsty manner, but reflecting the inner workings of a man who is at his wit's end and can barely hold on. 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! Most purchases from business sellers are protected by the Consumer Contract Regulations 2013 which give you the right to cancel the purchase within 14 days after the day you receive the item. Peter David didn't just make a copy of Peter Parker and put him in 2099; instead, he makes a new character with his own personality, quirks, ego (yes, ego! The neo-industrial not-so-distant future background, where the air and class is "better" the higher up you are, and one mega corporation is in charge of nearly all living in the city it's based in are just a few examples of the cliches that dot this classic run.

He doesn't harbor any particular love for the "legend" that was Spider-Man from the past, and he pretends - either to those around him, or to himself - that he isn't much of a nice guy. As you can probably tell with my individual volume ratings that I really enjoyed 80% of Spider-Man 2099. 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.

Overall if you can get this Omnibus or read it on Marvel Unlimited I’d still recommend it fairly highly especially with how fun it is. Unfortunately, Peter David left the series before the last two issues were written and things go off the rails. 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! 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! And when he's poisoned by his boss that makes believe he gave him a drug he'll get hooked on forever, he decides to do something drastic like inject something inside him that'll fix that.

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. I’d argue Spider-Man 2099 helped pave the way for later characters such as Mayday Parker/Spider-Girl, Miles Morales, Spider-Gwen, Superior Spider-Man, etc. 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!So he decided to break them down from the outside, while at the same time dealing with villains, and try to help the downtown levels of New York where the poor and broken lived. He also uses metafiction frequently, usually to humorous effect, as in his work on the comic book Young Justice. At the time of writing this review, Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse is still in theaters, and has introduced a new generation to Miguel’s character for the first time. Spinning out of the pages of Amazing Spider-Man and Spider-Verse - the biggest Spider-Man event ever! We then introduce Green Goblin and while not as strong twist, I felt like we were building up to something major that could really effect the cast.

The world of Marvel 2099 may be a fun novelty, but it is Miguel O'Hara that will keep you coming back.Miguel O’Hara, his DNA rewritten in an attempt to escape his employer Alchemax, has gained amazing powers – and become the new Spider-Man! Almost all of its elements are indicative of that period for science-fiction - which is, in essence, exactly what this series is. I absolutely cannot wait to read the other modern series in Omnibus vol 2, which I have been putting off until after I finished the classic series.
