The title-sabotaging journey to get here was generally offputting and peeving (except for the "All Hail, Queen Goblin" ish). However, this final issue was good stuff (or maybe it's just a relief to be over? ). The colors were poppin' and helped the lesser art effort, greatly here. Also:
Good context cover gives double take on motion f/x.
Jumbled flashback memories setup was too messy, imo. (Footnotes would've helped.)
Cameo of Slingers was (BARELY) better than nothing. (Showing 'em ALL in clearly in a panel would've helped.)
Marcus entertained me. His fate was appreciated.
Maxine entertained me. Her fate was appreciated.
The Ben Vs Peter conflict was believable. (At least under these conditions of Ben's -odd- deteriorating condition.)
Janine to the rescue, while heartfelt, just reminded me how peeving Beyond's precident-challenging resource have detracted from this arc. (The INFANTILIZER, while comical, just had me thinging from the get go how it belittles the cosmic-comic de-aging by Alpha The Ultimate in https://marvel.fandom.com/wiki/Defenders_Vol_1_16 by making it commonplace. It feels like a possible parody proposal to defend against The Futurist https://marvel.fandom.com/wiki/Randolph_James_(Earth-616) before go-to genius Reed could ever science one up.)
Good fight action. (But Peter's explanation how he escaped -see attached- felt too confusing to me.)
Mystery/Threat of the Beyond's board members is maintained and baffling as ever. Meh. (Maybe Marcus can shed some light.)
May and MJ were spot on.
That Blood Road cliffhanger was an underwhelming choice, imo.
The rebirth and intro of CHASM was way too much trope. Seemed a bit pandering to Reillyfans but to each their own. On the plus side, he now has much more potential than a straight-up Spidey-clone, a cool character design that keeps the Spidey-imagery, and best of all it finally removes one of the umpteen detracting Spidey-copycats.
