    The Fandom Post

    This has been a fun run overall with its intent on tapping into five different characters/types for Miguel to face off against. It showed off the period well, the way Miguel operates and thinks in this time, and provided for a lot of action. What we didn’t get, however, was time with Miguel himself. It’s almost entirely with him suited up if not completely in that way and losing out on the who of the character is tough. I do like the overall approach of showing us basically an anthology of this time and place through opponents for Miguel but it loses some of that “Marvel magic” but not including material with him as a thread throughout it. But we do get character material through the opponents themselves and their stories so it balances out some. But not having time for our hero always feels a bit odd to me. Regardless, I’m cautiously optimistic for a new return to 2099 in the summer of 2024.

    Man-Thing 2099 is the newest in a long line of Man-Things and other characters that tried to do good and got physically transformed as a result. He does continue the Man-Thing tradition of “burning” his victims with a touch, but this time the burn comes from deleting someone’s digital footprint. It’s a clever move and lines up with how something like this would behave in the future. Of course, the end of this mini series teases even more adventures for Miguel O’Hara and the rest of the 2099 cast.

    Major Spoilers

    Miguel O’Hara: Spider-Man 2099 #5 has a really clunky narrative device that sticks out like a sore thumb, but if you can get past that, this is a decent story. The Man-Thing is the main focus here, as he should be, and they handle his origin well and manage to introduce a compelling new character into the 2099 world.
