  • Spider-Man 2099 #1: Miguel O’Hara is back and starring in his own book again with Spider-Man 2099 #1, although he’s now stuck in 2014 because of events in Superior Spider-Man.  Using a fake name at the fledging Alchemex company, Miguel needs to try and figure out a way home without disrupting the future, which gets tricky when agent from 2211’s TOTEM agency arrives to disintegrate him.  Miguel manages to outwit him but draws the attention of Alchemex exec, Liz Allen.  I really loved the TOTEM’s agent’s ability to scan and determine someone’s importance to the future before deciding to kill them or not and Miguel is just like I remember him from the 90’s, so it’s a welcome return.

  • Daredevil #5: The secret behind Foggy Nelson’s “death” is revealed this issue in that, before he left for San Fransisco, Matt Murdock was having Hank Pym do treatments inside of Foggy to battle his cancer cells.  Matt’s moving would interrupt the treatments and Foggy would be vulernable, as Daredevil’s enemies now know that Matt is Daredevil.  Matt tries to convince Foggy to fake his death and come to CA with him, but he refuses until a crazed supervillain in a mech attacks and Foggy seemingly sacrifices himself to stop the mech from self destructing in the middle of the city.  Hank managed to shrink himself and Foggy before the explosion and Foggy gets to “die” a hero and comes out to San Fransisco secretly with Matt.
