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.
