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. 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. 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! The year 2099 is full of menace, but none so insidious as the corrupt corporations that run the world! Almost all of its elements are indicative of that period for science-fiction - which is, in essence, exactly what this series is. 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.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. From Miguel's soon to be wife Dana, to Xena, to his brother, everyone gets to shine in new and exciting ways each arc. 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.

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. The pre-loved books are carefully cleaned and maintained offering a wide variety of general and specialist titles from children's to adults. This was pretty fun overall and didn’t really fall apart until around the last 2 or 3 issues with the Atlantis stuff. Miguel O’Hara, his DNA rewritten in an attempt to escape his employer Alchemax, has gained amazing powers – and become the new Spider-Man! 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.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 O'Hara, his DNA rewritten in an attempt to escape his employer Alchemax, has gained amazing powers - and become the new Spider-Man!

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. and problems, and the origin of becoming Spider-Man is extremely different and unsettling what gets him there, to be honest! 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. 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.

Unfortunately, Peter David left the series before the last two issues were written and things go off the rails. 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. 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. 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.
