• Miguel O'Hara finds himself in the middle of bidding war between Parker Industries and rival Alchemax! • Not only that, but his traveling through time has put the people he cares about in the year 2014 in imminent danger!
Peter David made an interesting choice by ending the series without mentioning the book's original concept, implying that individual relationships are more worthy of saving than the future. Read Full Review
Migeul and Tempest haven't been much of a thing overall when you look at this series as a whole and the importance of what happens here is minimal overall. Not to Tempest of course, and I doubt Miguel has really learned his lesson about bringing things back from the future, but the series as a whole is one that has left me wondering why it was greenlit. I really like the character and I loved the 2099 universe itself from the old days, and there was certainly potential with using Miguel in the present with Alchemax's true formation and seeding other things. But looking back at the run that we have, there's nothing memorable here and nothing that feels like it adds anything in the long run. it was fun and had its moments, again notably with the Spider-Verse elements, but that's not enough to salvage it. Hopefully the next 2099 book will actually be in 2099 beyond the Secret Wars series. Read Full Review
