Spider-Man 2099 Bio:
Miguel O'Hara is a genuis child born into an abusive home. He manages to get a scholarship to a special boarding school Alchemax Boarding School for gifted youngsters (Could be the renovated Xavier's school). There he meets other gifted kids like love interest and genuis computer programer Xina Kwan.
Miguel O'Hara becomes the lead geneticist on a project to recreate Spider-Man's powers in soldiers. With the aim of making super soldiers. He is working for the highly corrupt Alchemax corporation. After the death of a test subject Miguel attempts to quit but is blackmailed to continue by the president of Alchemax. The president injects Miguel with a highly addictive drug that only Alchemax creates. If Miguel gets the drug from a different source (Black market) the president will turn him in.
Miguel is a genuis though and hatches a plan to rid himself of drug dependency. He breaks into Alchemax and enters a machine to rewrite his DNA back to how it was prior to the inducement of the drug. A jealous coworker sabotages the DNA rewrite and adds Spider DNA to the mix. Leaving the machine Miguel learns that he now contains 50% spider DNA and has Spider powers like the Spider-Man hero he had been studying. He makes a suit and begins fighting crime beneath the name of Spider-Man. One of his prime targets are the huge Mega Corporations that have corruptly taken control of the world.
Miguel has a bit of a bizarre appearance that he must cover up. He has red iris's that are highly sensitive to sunlight so he is constantly wearing sunglasses. He also has fangs in his mouth. If he is angered or shocked he can also release his hand/feet talons or accidentally spray his webbing. He has found a variety of ways of hiding these features. He is forced to talk almost like a ventriloquist to hide his fangs.
Spider-Man 2099 became stranded in the present during the Superior Spider-Man's run as the main Spider-Man in the 616 universe. The Superior Spider-Man strands Miguel to battle an army of Spider Slayers leaving Miguel very angry at Spider-Man. When Peter retakes his control of his body and effectively ends the reign of the Superior Spider-Man he explains the crazy story of how Otto Ocatavius took control of his body. Miguel accepts the story because it is "too stupid to be anything but true."
Miguel has now joined with the other spider-totem in the Spider-Verse event. Miguel sees the Exciles Spider-Man killed by Morlun and leaves to find Peter to let him know about the return of Morlun.
