About this deal

Omnibus usually includes bonus materials such as the creation of the work, alternative covers, sketches, comic scripts, and more.

Quite a few superheroes had abusive upbringings, but I feel like it's more developed here when you have Conchata taking out her own anger and disappointment (at herself, at Tyler, at George) on Miguel, thus giving us layers of trauma and abuse. 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.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. 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! and problems, and the origin of becoming Spider-Man is extremely different and unsettling what gets him there, to be honest! He's not a bad guy, he's just literally one of the most aggressive and self-righteous Spider-Men out there. 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.

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. Miguel and the people in his life serve as a compelling drama while he figures out his new responsibility as the herald of a new heroic age. A shame to end like that considering how good it was before, but also nice that the series was picked back up later on, which I'm very excited to read when it come out in omnibus next year. The year 2099 is full of menace, but none so insidious as the corrupt corporations that run the world! An ode to the growing cyberpunk genre and its most well known stories, from Tron to Bladerunner and the Cyberpunk 2020 game.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. The pre-loved books are carefully cleaned and maintained offering a wide variety of general and specialist titles from children's to adults. 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. 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.

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! 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. 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.By using the Web site, you confirm that you have read, understood, and agreed to be bound by the Terms and Conditions. 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. 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. 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, his DNA rewritten in an attempt to escape his employer Alchemax, has gained amazing powers - and become the new Spider-Man!
