The Amazing Spider-Man #14 was released last week, and this is the issue where the big event of 2014, “Spider-Verse,” comes to a conclusion. The Spider-People are finally coming together in Earth-001, “Loomworld,” which is the home of The Inheritors. Many deaths occured during this event, and with the stage being set for the ritual, The Inheritors are one step closer to ending the web of life.
The action finally occurs in this issue, and we see the remaining Spider-Men/Women/Animals going up against The Inheritors, and the two leaders of the group, The Superior Spider-Man and The Amazing Spider-Man go up against Morlun and Daemos. Shortly after, Miles Morales shows up with Ultimate Black Widow and “The Web Warriors.” The game changer is when the Inheritor, Karn, teleports to Loomworld with another group of Spiders, and decides to side with “the righteous.” More help arrives when The Lady Spider and Spider-Man 2099 show up with the repaired “Leopardon,” the giant mecha from the 1978 Japanese Spider-Man TV series. We also see Spider-Girl, May “Mayday” Parker, the way readers remember her from her own comic book series, and she realizes the rights from wrongs. The ending is predictable, ever since Earth-3145 was mentioned in Spider-Woman #2, but it was just a matter on how the Spiders were going to get The Inheritors there and be victorious. By the end of the issue, it’s like a breath of fresh air, Spider-Verse is over, and the Spider-People can safely go back to their own realities. The next issue is the epilogue, and Spider-Verse will be officially over.
Overall, this is a great way to end this epic event. Although Spider-Verse was a hit-or-miss with each issue or tie-in book, it’s good to finally see the end of it, and no more Spider-People will get hurt or die. The story was written well here, everything finally came to a conclusion, and the story had a nice ending. The artwork and colors are perfect for this issue, it’s dark when it has to be, and you can sense the sigh of relief by story’s end. I rate this issue a 4.5 out of 5 stars, the big fight is finally seen here so it’s worth picking up, unfortunately, this is the final issue, and it ends quick. Every Spider served a purpose, and it was seen in this issue. This is why “the righteous” succeded in the end.
