Party like it's 2099
It also appears the Fist is involved in trapping Spidey in the future from the present day. Now I just got back into this title and this part is not covered in much detail here, so this is an educated guess on my part. I'm basically crossing my fingers that all those years of college were worth something and helped me read between the lines.
Still gathering my bearings in the setup pages of the issue, I’m going to jump to another conclusion and deduce that the Fist sent Spider-Man from the present to the future to stop him from interrupting some plan they are currently in the midst of concocting. Ok, so if you understood all of that and want to explain it to me in more detail, I’m all in because even after years of college, the summary page, and this setup, my head is swirling right now … but I trudge on.
Well great, now I won’t sleep for a week because I can’t think of a worse way to go than a tentacle coming for your face and breaking your neck. Things wrap up in cliffhanger style as the remaining Sinister Five add a new sixth member in the future with nefarious plans for our hero I’m sure ... and also because Sinister Six just has a better ring to it really.
The art was suitable, but a lot of the backgrounds were plain and deserted looking and not what I was clamoring for in my first trip back to 2099, but really it's my only complaint. I will note the suit Spider-Man 2099 wears now looks great in action and on the page whenever he shows up.
