MK2099: Mutant 2099 and Marvel Team-Up v3 #15-18

Post by Somebody » Sat Aug 09, 2008 12:19 pm

Mutant 2099 and the MTU3 issues are the only Marvel Knights 2099 issues I've got, unfortunately (I *had* Deadpool/GLI, but got rid of it a while back). Here's the list of what else is needed, from the Checklist:

Punisher 2099 v2 #1 (one-shot)
Inhumans 2099 #1 (one-shot)
Daredevil 2099 #1 (one-shot)
Black Panther 2099 #1 (one-shot)
Deadpool/GLI (one-shot)

Oh, and one semi-interesting sidebar - the scenario outlined in the (common) first pace flashbacks and in Reed's exposition is almost identical to the scenario Iron Man claims would happen in IM/Cap: Casualties of War if everyone united against the SHRA. The only major difference is that it's still the "Mutant Registration Act" everyone and their dog lined up to get squashed by Sentinels over and the X-Men were more actively involved.

The specific divergence point is hard to pin down, since it takes place after MTU3 15-18 would have taken place (Watchtower spires on Avengers Tower), but certainly before Civil War (and possibly before HoM).

Oh, and the first page recap is common to all the one-shots - and shows Spider-Man clearly. Does that need to count as a "story" for /1, /2 purposes?

With that out of the way... (and the board finally back up)

MK2099: Mutant 2099

Post by Somebody » Sun Aug 10, 2008 1:54 am

MUTANT 2099 #1
Writer: Robert Kirkman
Art: Khary Ranolph & Matt Ryan
"Mutant 2099"

Cast:
MUTANT 2099/CHAD CHANNING | MK2099 (also FB)
MR FANTASTIC/REED RICHARDS | MK2099 (also FB)
KESHIA | MK2099

Unnamed:
Mr & Mrs Channing
Keshia's mother
Teacher
O'HARA, (no first name)

Summary:
Chad Channing thinks back to the time he fell through a hole into a lab containing a disembodied brain in a jar - while fighting Moloids, led by a group of inbred "Mole People" alongside the brain - Reed Richards - wearing a robot body wrapped in a Thing-cloned shell (a lot like Clor's body come to think of it). They win after Reed throws a moloid away and all the others follow it back down the hole.

On his way home, he's warned by a Sentinel that he only has 1:15 until curfew, and he proceeds to fly home for speed. His mum reminds him he was due to meet his girlfriend and he runs off to her house, before getting a brush-off because she's mad at herself for letting him stand her up all the time. Outside, a Sentinel spots him out after curfew, but he manages to fly home quickly and slams the door behind him. His dad says good, he made it without being spotted - they couldn't afford another fine.

The next day at school, he finds his grades have dropped badly, and his sleeve rolls up, and a nearby student spots his mutant brand ("2099") - he claims he's taking his suppressors, and is "not going to sprout blue fur or metal wings any time soon".

Later, he's angry at Reed because playing superhero takes up so much of his time, and storms out. At home, his dad tells him he'll save the lecture for the next time he gets a bad grade, and his girlfriend called for him. Flying over, a Sentinel is thrown through a building and nearly hits him, and does knock him down to the ground, where the source of the trouble is revealed - a monster which looks vaguely like Sasquatch II (from Alpha Flight v2). Chad saves two people from being crushed, then scarpers as it is brought down. Reed arrives just at that moment, and points out he saved their lives - the Sentinels were only concerned about beating the monster, not human lives - before giving him a lift to Keshia's, who says if he makes it up to her, she'll live with him.

Heading back to Reed's basement, he says he's sticking with it, and then an alarm comes in. They head out.

CHRONOK | EARTH-CHRONOK
MUTANT 2099/CHAD CHANNING | MK2099

Cannon fodder:
ARAÑA/ANYA CORAZON | EARTH-CHRONOK (dies, although Terror uses her arm from this point on)

pg1-19
[Earth-Chronok]
Terror brushes off Gravity and Speedball, who are fleeing from a bunch of Chronok-Army Goons. Araña and X-23 leap in to help instead, while Sleepwalker flies overhead and decides to help too, thinking they might be the only survivors. Terror, now having a hole in his torso, decides to get a new one from a CAG blast, also joins in to get a new one, as Darkhawk & Dagger turn up, and DH takes command.

The firing then stops as Chronok turns up in person, taking the chance to gloat until Terror shoots him in the visor. They manage to make it down into a sewer, thanks partly to Speedball distracting him directly. Chronok tells them just to bomb them out. Most get away, but Araña is caught in the blast, and Speedball is left holding her severed arm; which Terror quickly appropriates to replace his lost right arm.

As they regroup, Speedball reveals he grabbed Chronok's time-travel device when he was jumping over him. Darkhawk looks it over, and sees that it should be simple to use, since it's got very few buttons and is displaying the exact date it was came from. They decide to go to the future one month before that date to try and stop him.

pg20-22
[MK2099]
There, they quickly run into Mutant 2099, who tells them the Sentinels will turn up any moment, and "uh... follow me if you want to live.... I guess."


MARVEL TEAM-UP v3 #17

Cast:
CHRONOK | EARTH-CHRONOK

MR FANTASTIC/REED RICHARDS | MK2099
MUTANT 2099/CHAD CHANNING | MK2099
TERROR/SHRECK | EARTH-CHRONOK & MK2099

KESHIA | MK2099
FIN FANG FOOM | MK2099
DAREDEVIL/SAMUEL FISK | MK2099
CHRONOK | MK2099
FIN FANG FOOM | MK2099

pg1-2
[Earth-Chronok]
In the past, Chronok recieves a report that the group have gone - save a armless, partially vapourised corpse Chronok assumes was Terror - and there were a lot of Chronal Displacement Particles there. He quickly discovers his "chronometer" is missing - but isn't too concerned, since he effectively rules the planet now, and doesn't plan to go back.

pg3-10
"The Future" [MK2099]

M2099 brings the group to Reed Richards' lab, where Reed (in his Thing robot body) chides him for his stupidity in bringing them there just because they said they claimed to be time-travellers - although he isn't concerned about the specific group, since he recognises Darkhawk, Dagger, Speedball, Sleepwalker and Gravity, and X-23 (just about). Moving his brain to a smaller robot mode, Reed fills them in on what's happened in the MK2099 timeline; while Darkhawk tells him why they're there. Reed recognises the time machine - it's his. After Reed further points out there are at least two other time machines he's aware of, so destroying it would be pointless, they decide to hole up and get ready.

pg11
"Some Time Later."

Darkhawk consoles Dagger, who's in shock over everything that's happened, claiming they'll undo it all.

pg12-14
"More Time Later..." ["almost a week"]

Gravity and X-23 go out to dinner with Chad and Keshia, who is now fully aware of Chad's superhero life. It's been a while since the M2099 one-shot, but the exact time is vague (C&K have been together for "almost two years, longer than he's been a super hero"). When Chad's "special number" goes off, the three heroes run off and leave Keshia to pick up the check.

They join a fight between Fin Fang Foom and several of their teammates [Terror (in Araña's carapace), Darkhawk, Speedball and Reed]. Gravity and Speedball are still in their own costumes; while X-23 & Gravity are getting lovey-dovey.

pg15
"Later that night"

Terror visits Sleepwalker in a sickbay, who has a broken arm and is having trouble adjusting to existing full-time in the waking world, with attendant chores.

pg16
"Live in the future" montage

(16:1) - "Day 9"; Chad and Speedball play a game, with Darkhawk, Dagger & Reed in the background
(16:2) - "Day 13"; M2099 and Sleepwalker help Daredevil against a group of Sentinels (the only reference to any of the other MK2099 one-shots)
(16:3) - "Day 17"; Reed examines Terror's rotting Araña arm
(16:4) - "Day 20"; M2099 walks in on X-23 and Gravity snogging. Last appearance of any individual costumes.

pg17-22
"Day 22"

Chad & Reed, in Reed's flying pod, discuss the looming threat of Chronok, and Reed explains that whatever happened originally isn't doomed to happen to them - the timeline was changed when Darkhawk & co landed in the future. They land and enter their base, where Darkhawk's running a training session with the others (now all wearing costumes styled after M2099's, albeit with masks based off their originals where relevant). Reed's impressed at Darkhawk's leadership skills.

Then Chronok attacks, with army of goons in tow.

CHRONOK | MK2099

SLEEPWALKER | EARTH-CHRONOK & MK2099
DARKHAWK/CHRIS POWELL | EARTH-CHRONOK & MK2099
DAGGER/TANDY BOWEN | EARTH-CHRONOK & MK2099

pg1-14
They fight and hold their own, until Reed pulls out a REALLY Big Gun and starts zapping the army with it.

Unfortunately, in the time it took Reed to get the gun, Chronok found the chronometer, and he slaps away Gravity when he tries to grab it. He opens a portal, but Darkhawk uses his grapple to break it when he is halfway through, shutting the portal and slicing him precisely in half (Gravity finds it "gross", Dagger wants to vomit, and Terror asks Reed to get it on ice ASAP).

Speedball's keen to get home, but Reed breaks it to him that he would either (a) end up back in Earth-Chronok, with a live Chronok lording it over a world where all the heroes are dead, or (b) end up in the normal MU... where there's another Speedball, Darkhawk, etc. They didn't change the past, just opened a new timeline where Chronok didn't go back and kill everyone.

pg15-16
Dagger's got mixed feelings about everything; while Darkhawk is actually quite happy about being stuck in the future - and on his mentioning "new relationships", they kiss.

pg17-19
Elsewhere in the complex, Sleepwalker's not too happy about being stuck in corporeal form permanently; while Terror's lackadasical; X-23 and Gravity are busy snogging; and Reed's talking to M2099 about future plans in light of getting more manpower.

After M2099 leaves to see Keshia, Darkhawk comes over to talk practicalities with Reed until Gravity joins them to ask where Speedball is. Reed detects that he's on the roof - which is worrying, since the Sentinels may detect him. Darkhawk volunteers to check on him.

pg20-22
Speedball's down about being stuck in the future, where no-one will ever know what they did to save the MU. Darkhawk says that, because they did it when no-one would even thank them, that's what makes them heroes.

pg1-2
Darkhawk leaves Speedball on monitor duty so he can get some sex time with Dagger. Reedbot transplants Arana's tattoo into a mechanical arm so Terror can still have the use of her "spider-armour stuff" even though the arm's too rotted to use. Elsewhere, M2099 & X-23 are playing a game, while Gravity is eating pizza. And finally, Sleepwalker walks in on Speedball's monitor duty as SB takes a "breet! breet!" to mean the timestream's collapsing and they're all doomed.

pg22
As everyone rushes in from Speedball's alarm, it turns out they're not doomed. The "breet! breet!" means it's raining.
