Fantastic Four 2099 #4: "Negative Results"

Honestly, this series just isn't very good.  Kesel makes the odd decision of having this Chimera woman fall so in love with Reed that she keeps trying to kill Sue.  Sue is understandably mistrustful of her, but it all reads as unnecessarily catty.  Moreover, the Fantastic Four is enraged by the existence of Spider-Man 2099, as if he's somehow betraying the original Spider-Man.  They haven't seen enough of the 2099 world to be glad that it has a hero like Spider-Man?  Really?  Basically, they're all a bunch of assholes.  The only good part of this issue is that Miguel comments on meeting the original Spider-Man, so I know that "Spider-Man 2099 Meets Spider-Man" happened before this issue.


  1. I see you've been reviewing a lot of comics from Marvel's 2099 line. I must say, though, that I'm not familiar with most of them. The only one I read was Doom 2099.

  2. I just saw your comment, so sorry for the late reply. I've been reviewing all of Spidey 2099's appearances and, since he appears in a lot of other series, it's been a long road. I thought the start of the 2099 line was awesome, but, to be honest, the quality has started lagging the later in the runs I get, particularly in the non-core books. I'll say that I thought "Doom 2099" was one of the best, along with "Spider-Man 2099." I've got about ten more issues to go before getting into the "Superior Spider-Man" appearances of Spidey 2099. Thanks for stopping by.
