The Inheritors have been defeated, and it’s time for cleanup.
As the various Spiders return to their respective homeworlds after a long, drawn-out battle, Peter Parker oversees the aftermath. With the Master Weaver dead and gone, it’s time for a new Weaver to take his place, and the Superior Spider-Man won’t have anything to do with it.
Otto Octavius, hoping to deny his future demise, opts to cut the threads in a bid to give himself and the other Spiders free will, but a collective effort by the remaining Spiders puts Superior Spider-Man where he belongs — the past.
In the end, Karn takes up the mantle of the Master Weaver, and the Spiders without a home — thanks to the multiverse crumbling — decide to create a new team to help those worlds without a Spider-Man/Woman.
The attack on Loomworld reaches a climax as all of the remaining Spiders converge on the Inheritors.
The plot for issue #14 is an easy one — Morlun and his family can’t stop the inevitable as the plan to stop the emergence of spider-totems falls apart bit by bit.
Last issue ended with a bombshell that felt appropriate as a tribute to both the title and character.
That said, Uncle Ben’s appearance as one of the Totems surprised a lot of readers, and The Amazing Spider-Man #13 deals with the reactions from the various Spiders — Peter Parker, especially — as the Inheritors wait for the prophecy to fulfill itself.
For the main group of Spiders on Earth-3145, things have come to a screeching halt. Thanks to the irradiated surface which is lethal to the Inheritors and the bunker’s built-in safeguards which prevent detection, the Spiders can rest a little easier knowing the threat of violence is lower than it’s been since the Spider-Verse arc began.
And while the Spiders get introduced to the Totem of this Earth, Solus and his brood wait for the prophecy to fulfill itself. As it’s foretold by the Weaver, it’s only a matter of time before the Bride and the Other for some untold reason come to Loomworld — the last place they’d ever want to willingly go.
Or so you would think. More on this later.
Forgive any errors in this review.
Mind is blown.
The Spider-Verse has been building up to a major battle between the Spider-Totems of the multiple universes and the Inheritors, a family of hunters who feed off the essence of other living beings.
