    There really isn't much to say about this issue since it's really battle heavy. I found the dialogue between Cloak and Dagger interesting about what they should do and where they should go now in they're forever changed and let it be known that i praise Miles Morales as a character. This issue really let him shine as the potential hero that he could be. Sure he's green but he could really go places with his talent. Read Full Review

    The best thing about this issue was seeing Miles basically warming up to being Spider-Man again. A lot of these stunt he hasn't pulled in over a year and he is very rusty. It shows and this was all about that progression as he got back into the groove of things. Everything was fluent in terms of the transitions of the fight sequences, and how lively it felt seeing them all over the place. Marquez does an amazing job and makes everything look as real as he possibly can make them. Read Full Review

    Time will tell if lingering so long on this battle was the right way to go. Bendis has plenty of material left to work through in the finale issue if he's going to wrap up the conflict with Roxxon in the style it deserves. But in these past 27 issues, has he given readers any reason to doubt his ongoing plan for Miles? Read Full Review

    The closer and closer we get to Cataclysm, the more and more I start to believe the entire Ultimate Universe is ending, which makes me a very sad comic book fan, since I love this universe so much more than the 616 Universe. While the story isn't really winning me over, this issue was a ton of fun. It was a great back and forth battle between these characters and the art was just beautiful. Taskmaster is the main selling point here, though. He's just a really awesome character with some very cool powers. This series may be coming to a close (hasn't been announced yet, but it really feels like the Ultimate Universe is completely ending), but it's still a solid book, and I highly recommend picking it up!

    The issue itself is fun. The Taskmaster proves tough to defeat, and the action is pretty intense. There's all manner of webbing, swinging, punching and beat downs. Bombshell's return is an awesome moment for the character, and both Spider-Man and Spider-Woman hold their own. They're also both great protagonists, both narrating various scenes during the fight. So it's a solid fight and the comic is entertaining, but the issue and story don't rise to greatness. Read Full Review

    All-Comic - Dan Pennacchia Sep 26, 2013

    As the issue comes to a close, the story reaches its real moment of revitalization. Taskmaster appears to be just another foe to defeat, and the issue is nearly forgettable when this crew comes together and makes a plan for the future. These misfits have been left to the own devices and have no one to turn to. S.H.I.E.L.D. may be involved with Roxxon in some way, and there is no telling who can be trusted. Suddenly Bendis has created something that is reminiscent of Brian K. Vaughan's Runaways and though it may be short-lived, it provides for a great moment and a resurgence of energy for the title.
