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. Miguel is not drawn to heroism in response to tragic consequences from self-centered action, but he's definitely drawn to self-centeredness. Shame to read this on the heels of Spider-Verse's inevitable replacement of Miguel's character for almost all public consciousness, alas. 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. 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!

As you can probably tell with my individual volume ratings that I really enjoyed 80% of Spider-Man 2099. 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! But when a jealous co-worker wants revenge he instead injects Miguel with the project they've been working on to give similar powers as Spider-Man.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. 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. On top of that the art is freaking fantastic, the first 25 or so issues being done by Rick Leonardi, and other artist later come on board to also help build this fantastic future like world that somehow works so well in a cyberpunk like setting.

For items that are dispatched using our standard service, we ask that you wait 14 days from the date of dispatch before reporting any items as undelivered. An ode to the growing cyberpunk genre and its most well known stories, from Tron to Bladerunner and the Cyberpunk 2020 game. But plotlines left unanswered and a pretty meh crossover can't stop the overall amazing character work that Peter David put in Miguel. 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!While today there’s a multiverse of new iterations and remixes of the Spider-Man character, Miguel O’Hara was one of the first, if not THE first, reimagining of Spider-Man to become popular in the mainstream. 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. 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! Unfortunately, Peter David left the series before the last two issues were written and things go off the rails. Interesting enough we start to dig into Miguel's childhood at the end of each issue giving us usually a 6-7 page special.
