    What we have here is a really solid issue. It's going to be interesting to see the resolution between Miles and Uncle Aaron as this current arc meets its end. At first – for me at least – it was a bit surreal to see Uncle Aaron come back from the dead but Bendis has made the most of it. The dynamic between Miles and Aaron is strong and makes for some great drama. Read Full Review

    SPIDER-MAN #239 has a lot to like. It has a great callback cameo, it has a great character moment for Miles, and it has some great color work by Brian Reber. However, it doesn't feel like the second-to-last issue of a huge, years long epic. I really hope Bendis and Co. prove me wrong next issue. Read Full Review

    The penultimate issue of Brian Michael Bendis' Spider-Man run is, unfortunately, little more than an average throwdown between superheroes and supervillains. Read Full Review

    How is Cyclops with the Champions still? After Viv turned synth again, he left the Champions to go into space. So either this takes place before Viv got turned human, which would put it all the way back in “Worlds Collide”, or it happens in the future and Cyclops rejoins. Get your continuity straight Marvel.

    Not a great arc but this ish had a bit of decent stuff going on. Nice art too.

    Miles grabs some backup to prep for the big showdown with the new Sinister Six. There's a touch of decent banter going on, but the pace remains terribly decompressed. When the last act switches into double-page spreads for the start of the big fight scene, it feels like the goal is to burn up pages rather than showcase exciting action. Even if it's a small helping, the plot progression is very appreciated.

    This series went from pretty solid to underwhelming at the beginning of Legacy. While I think most series excelled during the relaunch, this title has really let me down. While the story isnot bad, I was expecting a lot more, especially with Bendis on his way out. The art remains well, but that's not enough to save this series end.

    Bendis' run on Miles Morales' "Spider-Man" seems to be ending with a whimper as opposed to a bang. This Sinister Six, possibly the most dull collection of villains ever, continue to...uh, steal stuff, and then the Champions come, and...I was pretty bored. The drama between Miles and his Uncle is not really interesting, largely because there is nothing special about his Iron Spider. If you asked me to summarize this plot, I'm thinking I might have trouble locating key points to highlight. Nothing much is happening here. Move along.

    Honestly bored of this story now. But this certainly doesn’t feel like it’s gesring up towards the last issue as it gives me no reason to want to even read the conclusion to this comic...I’ll be glad when we get a new writer for Miles who maybe has more passion left for story telling

    While still somewhat interesting story with the return of Aaron, the Sinister Six tale feels like it is running on fumes. The snappy banter between members is still there and there a few fun surprises to give you a smirk. Overall the tale has still gone nowhere with premise that has already been set many issues ago. The art when it comes to character looks great. Again we see double page spreads with no real purpose behind it. This includes the end cliffhanger where the majority of the panels are empty space which hurts the tension overall by not directing the focus properly. The books as a whole feels a little sloppy. There are some good moments and I am sure if you read this in a trade form then you will not be as bothered by the flaws ma more

    Bendis had a great time with Miles. So why is he going out with a bummer? This "Sinister Six Reborn" is just boring... Nothing happens until big action scene that feels so off. He has so many characters for this story arc and half of them are wasted and another half doesn't get enough time.

    Even artwork feels bit off...
