    Issue #25 wraps up pieces of the Las Vegas storyline Ben Reilly has been involved in, but also leaves just as many questions unanswered. Ending with Reilly returned to the land of the living, with a new bloodlust and less-heroic spirit, and Kaine all but dead, where do these characters go from here? For fans. Read Full Review

    I'm not sure if the ambiguous ending is what Reilly fans wanted, but it's probably what the character deserved after such an uneven and frustrating series. Read Full Review

    This was such a weird non-ending. I wonder if Spider-Geddon actually continues from what happens here. But I doubt it.

    Bad ending. Nothing is really good here.

    As much as I enjoy the the Scarlet Spider run, this issue was a complete crap issue. Art sucked! Having him attack apparently a Misty who apparently was a machine this whole time, felt a bit forced. The ending left us with Gabriel attacking Kaine and Ben Reilly becoming evil?... Really a let down considering why they didn't do a nod or tie in ending to Spider-Geddon instead of an ending where I actually want to read more but it won't happen.

    What a waste of 25 issues. Peter David has clearly lost what it means to write a good comic because this series has been all over the place, with this by far being the worst. Awful art, dumb story and awful ending.
    Don’t buy this comic, you’ll regret the minute you open up the book
