Back in Spider-Man #238, Miles watched his uncle take off in a stolen helicarrier. Now he’s trying to figure out how to find him and that gives us the comedic moment where he punches right through his uncle’s safe. Just prior to that, we get a little flashback that explains how he knows about the safe, which is useful information.

More from Spider-Man

On the helicarrier, Hobgoblin is knocked out and thrown out of the group. This scene shows that the villains aren’t afraid to be ruthless if they think someone is betraying them. They just have the word of Sandman to go on, but they take it.

Danika calls Ganke by the name Ned, which is certainly a nod to Spider-Man: Homecoming where Peter’s best friend Ned looks exactly like Ganke from the comics. It’s great to see Brian Michael Bendis having some fun as he’s closing out his run.

The helicarrier is delivered to Lucia Von Bardas, but the Champions are right behind them. It’s nice to see the whole team appear in this issue. After a big fight, which was nicely drawn by Oscar Bazaldua, the issue ends on a cliffhanger. Bullets start flying and we see Miles starting to go overboard.

Overall, this issue moved fairly quickly. Miles got the information he needed, we got an update on the heroes, we get the Danika and Ganke scene and then we have the big finale. Brian Michael Bends looks to be building up to a fun finale with this one.
