    This issue was a little slower in terms of plot, but during this lull in the action we get to see a lot of great character development between Reed Richards and the other heroes, and Miles Morales and the other heroes as well. This issue may not have answered any questions brought up in previous issues or advanced the plot very far but it did build on the connections between the characters involved and this will make the coming events of Cataclysm and its conclusion much more intense.

    We The Nerdy - Derek A. Adams Jan 10, 2014

    Somehow it still want to continue to read this story, which is probably just due to the hype for what is to come, even if its nothingness for the Ultimate universe, I guarantee that Miles Morales will come back in some way. Miles' story is far from over, he is in about the second act of his origin and it would be a travesty if they just killed him off. Also, with Bendis having such large weight at Marvel I'm sure this won't be the last we see of this new Spider-man. Read Full Review

    Comic Vine - Mat 'Inferiorego' Elfring Jan 8, 2014

    CATACLYSM: LAST STAND #3 is a really good 8 page story, dragged on for 20 pages. This issue really missed its mark. The overall story has been very good, and this issue moves the story forward, but not at the pace of everything else. The issue feels like filler. This has been the weakest issue of the story thus far, so if you're already reading it, pick it up, otherwise this is a mild recommendation which you could easily skip. Read Full Review

    Weekly Comic Book Review - Hugo Robberts Lariviere Jan 9, 2014

    The colorization, on the other hand, is rather neat, with Jason Keith bringing his talent to the issue. While not as experimental or minimalist as other colorists, Keith does a fine job with setting an ambiance with his work, playing with lighting, shadows and different shading in order to bring out the destruction and the super science on display on the pages. There is perhaps an abundance of lighting and reflection in his work, but it does work rather well in most scenes as Jason Keith bring the more luminous and downright mad aspects of super heroes quite easily through these effects. There might be a few moments noteworthy with some good art and colorization, yet the very slow development and the unsurprising progression on display does not make for a very satisfying comic.
