Dana’s death by Venom tears a hole in Miguel’s relationship with Xina. What will Spider-Man uncover about the symbiote through extensive research? And, Kasey Nash, pursued by Vulture!
Spider-Man 2099 met Venom 2099 and things didn't work out too well. Let's just say there was no Dana D'Angelo spinoff series.
Spider-Man clutches the lifeless body of Dana in his arms. Xina and some SHIELD officers watch over him. As one officer tries to get Spider-Man to let her go, Spider- Man punches him in the face shield. His partner gets the officer to back off and give Spidey some space.
Conchata hears the news of Dana's death on the news. Gabriel comes in the door, unaware of the tragedy. He sees the broadcast's images of Dana and Spider-Man, and impulsively punches the screen. He storms out of Conchata's home.
The Public Eye alters the citizens that Venom is on the loose, while Miguel demands answers from the people at Alchemax on how to take down Venom. A co-worker says they have a piece of Venom contained that was found in the outer office. Miguel goes to study it.
Downtown, Kasey Nash runs for her life. Vulture 2099 is in pursuit and claws through a wall to get her. Meanwhile, Tyler Stone regains consciousness. Jake Gallows (Punisher 2099) is there, sent by President Doom, to handle the investigation. He tells Tyler that Dana is "resting."
While examining the piece of the Venom symbiote, Miguel observes a response from it resulting from sound. He orders more tests, while Xina Kwan comes to see him, full of emotions over the intense and tragic events. Miguel is less than supportive, as he resumes his research into the symbiote. Here, the learns his hypothesis is supported that the alien is averse to sound.
Downtown, as Vulture flies off with Kasey, an energy beam knocks Vulture hard, causing him to drop Kasey. A mysterious winged figure (to be named as the Goblin 2099) claims Kasey is "off limits" as he catches Kasey, and knocks Vulture down.
In the streets above, Venom is in anguish by the sounds Miguel arranged to be broadcast through the public speakers. Venom falls to the ground, trying to identify the source. Spider-Man drops down from the sky and pounds him. Venom, weakened by the soundwaves, cannot hold his ground. As everyone watches on their video screens, Spider-Man extends his talons ready to finish him off. Suddenly, he realizes that Venom is a symbiote attached to a human host. The host cries for mercy. Spider-Man almost has a change of heart until, he remembers that it just killed Dana. He pounces again, and starts to strangle Venom. The symbiote slithers off Venom's face. Miguel looks surprised to see... TO BE CONTINUED!
Young Miguel O'Hara in "Hasta La Vista"
Kron Stone has been expelled. He still has the audacity to mouth-off to his father for not clearing his name at the trial. Tyler orders his son to pack his bag and walks outside. There he sees Miguel and Xina. Taking Miguel on the side, Tyler explains that Kron is a difficult child. Miguel is quick to turn the blame back on having a difficult father. Tyler apologizes and the two shake hands, saying he'll be "keeping an eye on your...son." Little does Miguel realize that Tyler is indeed his true father.
