    Comic Vine - Corey 'Undeadpool' Schroeder Jan 8, 2014

    The level of emotion this book brings to the table is not to be underestimated in terms of superhero books, or in fact ANY kind of genre in the comics medium. This is as much a book about its characters and their development as it is about the world ending, and the title absolutely delivers on that front. Watching Spider-Man still so determined to help people despite everything falling down around him, despite his own personal issues, despite EVERYthing feels absolutely like picking up a Spidey comic and realizing EXACTLY what the character is all about for the first time. Hes about helping people, no matter what the future is hurling at him and this issue communicates that amazingly. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Resources - Doug Zawisza Jan 13, 2014

    With news beginning to break of the future of the Ultimate Marvel Universe, the conclusion of "Cataclysm: Ultimate Spider-Man" #3 is rather anti-climatic. Apart from some rescuing and a confrontation with his dad, this series didn't really do much. Sure, it provided scope from an everyman's point of view regarding Galactus, but the impact of Galactus on this corner of the Ultimate Marvel Universe could have been handled in the span of a few pages. This story was extrapolated as a crossover without bearing the weight or reward of truly crossing over. Yes, it adds a little more background and depth to the "Cataclysm" saga, but the real reward is primarily for Spider-Man readers. This story is a "Cataclysm" detour, but an "Ultimate Spider-Man" treasure. Read Full Review

    Henchman-4-Hire - Sean Ian Mills Jan 13, 2014

    The final issue in this 3-parter is a bit of a let down, if only because not much really happens. The emotional confrontation between father and son is short and bittersweet, and the issue ends with just a continuation into the main Cataclysm series. It doesn't serve as a finale to Ultimate Spider-Man or as much of a finale to this 3-parter. Read Full Review

    All-Comic - Dan Pennacchia Jan 8, 2014

    Unfortunately, it is at this point that the issue starts to really lose momentum. Miles reunites with his costumed friends that he'd previously teamed up with in an attempt to save people in the city. The rescue effort takes up several pages but lacks any real urgency or purpose. Simultaneously, as this is slated as the last issue of the title, at least for now, far too much is left up in the air. It looks as those some of these loose ends may find resolution in the main event title. But for such a long running series, it is disappointing to have such a lack of closure within the pages of this title. Regular readers will have to seek out the other books connected to the event to find out if closure will even occur or what the future may hold for the characters they have followed for so long. Surely this cant be the last of the Ultimate Spider-Man universe, can it? If so, it is not the ending the title deserves. Read Full Review
