Review

Holy shock! Well, that's what they'd say in the future at least, but that episode was ahead of its time! Spider-Man 2099, who revealed himself to be Miguel O'Hara, same back in time with some pretty unsettling news: That Josh's son somehow ended the world! Well, split it into four quarters and sent it hurtling towards the sun, but you get the just. Anyways, it all happened because a mole in E.G.G, Abraham Coria (The same guy Eileen kicked in the eggs in episode 1) was trying to sell off the Cosmic Gauntlet to the CEO of the evil future corporation Alchemax, Walker Sloan. This transaction would lead to Josh's son obtaining the glove, and unintentionally ruining the future. In the end, the bad guys were stopped, and Spider-Man 2099 returned home, knowing that the future was now safe.

Let's get started!

Alright, no questions or comments this week, so let's just hop right into the highlights of the episode!

Spider-Man 2099!

Spider-Man 2099

And at that instant, a blue flash lit up the Inner Shell. When it cleared, a man stood in the center. He wore a blue costume with a red skull on the front. He had two talons coming out of the back of each arm and a mask that completely covered his face. He looked directly at Josh, then began to walk towards him. Josh drew his gun.

“Blast him!” He shouted. Everyone took out their weapons and began to fire. Alerted, the man began to move. Quickly. He swiftly and effortlessly dodged each bullet. He flipped around the room, kicking, tripping, and taking out agents.

“His moves…” Josh said. He watched as the man made his way around the Inner Shell, taking down agents one by one.

“That’s it!” Eileen said as she stepped forward, held out her hand, and shot lighting at him. It hit him, and stopped him in his tracks, but it seemed like his suit absorbed the blast. Eileen stopped. “What the…” Then he did something really unexpected. He spun a web, and stuck Eileen to the wall. Acacia continued to fire, but he grabbed her arm, threw her into the air, and stuck her to the ceiling with a web. Josh backed into a corner as the man approached.

“Who are you?!” He shouted. The man stopped. He reached up and took off his mask.

“My name is Miguel O’Hara.” He said. “And I’m Spider-Man from the year 2099.”

* * *

Yeah, that's pretty awesome. Spider-Man 2099 was a comic series in the 90's, strangely enough, that took place in the year, you guessed it, 2099. Miguel O'Hara was an employee in the genetics division at the evil corporation Alchemax, when a jealous co-worker drugged him and trapped him in an experiment that was supposed to kill him. Instead, it gave Miguel super strength, wall-crawling, web-slinging, and the ability to slow down time and everything around him, his accelerated vision. Spider-Man 2099 fights the constant battle to stop Alchemax from terrorizing Nueva York (future New York). Oh, and he says shock a lot, it's kind of a universal swear word.

Walker Sloan

“It’s not your fault.” Miguel reassured. “Alchemax was pulling his strings. He was their puppet.”

“Why don’t we just, you know,” Acacia said. “Stop Alchemax from being created?”

“I’ve already tried that,” Miguel said. “About a million times. But the CEO, Walker Sloan, is always one step ahead of me. We can’t stop Alchemax from being created, but we can stop this from happening.”

* * *

Now I know what the purists are saying: "Tyler Stone is the CEO of Alchemax! Walker Sloan isn't even a real comic book character! Blah, blah, blah!"

Well, yeah, I know. But if you haven't read the Introduction to E.G.G (Which you really should if you're reading the series!) then let me fill you in. I've sort of pseudo-created my own Marvel Universe by mashing together the 616, Ultimate, and the MCU. I also take things from various other Marvel productions that I feel will service the story. Walker Sloan was an antagonist created for the 2011 video game Spider-Man: Edge of Time. He wasn't in it very long, but I really liked his character, and felt like I wanted to use him as the CEO of Alchemax. Liberties? Of course. But it's a considerably minor one, I think. Also, don't worry. Tyler Stone may not have been in this episode, but don't count him out yet.

Wait, Josh has a son!

“So what brings you 85 years into the past?” Josh asked. “Does E.G.G do something life threatening?”

“No,” Miguel replied. “It’s not really E.G.G…”

“Is it me?” Josh asked, a little worried.

“No, not you either. It’s your son.”

“My son?” Josh replied. “What does my son… wait a minute! If I have a son that means I have a wife! So I do get a girlfriend!” Eileen face palmed and Acacia rolled her eyes. “Who is she? I have to know!”

“I can’t tell you.” Miguel stated.

“What! Why?”

“Because it could jeopardize the future.”

* * *

Well, someone's a little eager for a girlfriend. But really, who isn't these days? Yes, Josh has a son, who's part of E.G.G in 2099, which apparently outlives S.H.I.E.L.D! But who is he? And what could posses him to make a deal with Alchemax for the Cosmic Gauntlet? What was so important that he needed it that badly? All I can say is, you'll see! Ha, I'm such a tease.

Wait, did he just...

“You may want to know all of this stuff now, but for me, well, it’s good to know there is a future where men like you carry on the good fight. You’ll figure out everything, in good time.” Josh smiled.

“Okay then. But E.G.G could really use some of your future tech…” Spider-Man 2099 took off his mask and tossed it to Josh.

“Go crazy pal.” Miguel said.

“Awesome!” Josh said, rubbing it against his cheek as Miguel stepped into the portal.

“Oh, and Westbrook. Your wife, she’s closer than you think.”

“Wait, what?”

“See you later old timer.” Miguel saluted as he began to fade away.

* * *

"He totally just gave Josh his mask! With Walker Sloan on the other end of the portal!"

Hm. Well, that's not good.
