Hi all,

I recently dug out the original Spider-Man #2099 series to re-read, so as to better understand the current series. I read all the old issues back in the day... but that was September 1992 - June 1996.[*] I've not touched them since, which is nearly two decades!

Reading them all in a row, in the space of about a week, was a nice refresher. In fact, I think I enjoyed them more this way, seeing Peter David's story unfold all at once, than I did the first time around, reading them as monthly installments.

Having just finished the P.A.D. run (#1-44), the two final issues (#45-46), the annual, the special, and the crossover with Marvel 616, what I'd like to know is this:

Which in-continuity stories do I need to read to bridge the gap between the end of the Spider-Man 2099 series and his re-appearance in Superior Spider-Man?

I've got the [dreadful] '2099: World of Tomorrow' issues packed away. Are those really worth re-reading? Are they even in continuity? I know that the '2099: Manifest Destiny' one-shot is definitely not compatible with established continuity.

I know that the Exiles version of Miguel is from a separate reality, and likewise, the 'Timestorm' version is very different (and both were recently killed in Spider-Verse).

So... is there anything else that I need to read before jumping from the end of the 1990s Spider-Man 2099 series to his re-appearance in Superior Spider-Man (and his new series)?

It feels like something is off, as Peter David made it clear in the old series that Tyler Stone knew Miguel was Spider-Man. Possibly from the very beginning, but certainly by series end. Yet in Superior Spider-Man, he possesses no such knowledge.

Somebody help? Thanks!

[*] Ironically coinciding exactly with my time as an undergraduate student.

I could be wrong but I thought the current 2099 Spidey is also an alternate reality as well?
