    Miles plays a huge role in Civil War II, so it's not a big surprise that this volume mostly deals with that fight and the different forms of fallout that come from it. I'm sure it will annoy some people more than others that this title was hijacked so soon by another 'Event'...and rightly so. I mean, I didn't mind it, but I think I'm probably desensitized to events taking over random titles at this point anyway.

I mean, I didn't mind it, but I think I'm probably desensitized to events taking over random titles at this point anyway. But besides Civil War II there were plenty of other things happening in the background that I thought were just as (if not more) interesting. OMG! Miles father is harboring one hell of a secret, isn't he? What the what?! That whole storyline is (to me) extremely interesting, and I can't wait to see where it goes. Love, love, love all of the kids surrounding Miles. Ganke and Kamla are both adorable as the best friend and secret love interest, but the others (Goldballs, Nova, Bombshell) really add something special to the dynamic of the story. Another highlight for me was the Jessica Jones/Luke Cage cameo. LOVE THOSE TWO! Jessica was hired by Miles overbearing grandmother to find out why his grades were dropping. She was convinced he was on drugs and wanted some proof. Fortunately for Miles, his granny hired a former Avenger to investigate him, so he got a heads up instead of getting outed to his family. I gotta say, this is better than I was expecting, and almost exactly what I was hoping for when I found out Miles was going to have his own Spider-Man title in the 616 universe. Good stuff!

    Hmm. Yeah, unfortunately the post-Secret Wars Miles Morales stuff isn’t an improvement over the post-Cataclysm crap. Event comics have completely ruined this character. And if that wasn’t enough, here comes another one in the form of Civil War II to compound the fuck-up! Jesus, what a mess Brian Bendis ended up making of poor Miles’ series. In post-Secret Wars Marvel, the Ultimates universe is gone with the surviving remnants folded together so Miles is Spider-Man alongside Peter Parker’s Spidey Hmm.

In post-Secret Wars Marvel, the Ultimates universe is gone with the surviving remnants folded together so Miles is Spider-Man alongside Peter Parker’s Spidey and co. - I know, it’s a stupidly overcrowded situation. His ma’s brought back to life for no reason, completely undermining the traditionally tragic Spidey origin, and his da is rewritten as a secret SHIELD Agent, also for no reason. The former X-Man Goldballs is Miles and Ganke’s new roomie. You see a story in all this? Me neither - this is just... stuff! Window-dressing that should accompany a plot, not be THE focus of a book. Most of the book is Civil War II bullshit, which, if you’ve read that event like me (and for the record: not a bad event - not good but definitely not as bad as they usually are; it’s surprisingly readable and not totally astoopid), nothing here’s gonna interest you. It certainly doesn’t add anything to the main storyline it’s tying into. Miles’ gran has hired Jessica Jones to spy on him which goes nowhere. Miles’ dad’s SHIELD initiation - which takes up an entire issue - was completely pointless. This is what Bendis on autopilot looks like. He gets so wrapped up in extraneous irrelevancies like character banter that he completely forgets to give them anything to do. I have no clue what Miles’ story is going forward but that’s because there doesn’t seem to be one! Nico Leon’s art is fine but nothing special and Sara Pichelli draws the Jefferson/SHIELD ish which looked pretty cool. And, let’s be fair: Bendis is a good writer. For all my criticisms of it, Spider-Man: Miles Morales, Volume 2 isn’t a badly-written comic - it’s just frustratingly dull wheel-spinning and in dire need of a story. Sort it out, Bendis!

    Miles reacts to all the stuff going on with him in Civil War II. Plus, his dad's got some secrets. Jessica Jones has also been hired by Miles's grandmother to find out his secret. The Good: Brian Michael Bendis! I hope we never live in a world where someone besides Bendis is writing this book. Yeah, some of his other stuff isn't so great, but you can definitely tell that Spider-Man is his baby. The Bad: The Civil War II stuff is definitely getting old and I'm looking forward to just letting Bendis Miles reacts to all the stuff going on with him in Civil War II.

Tony and Captain Marvel invite all the superheroes to try talk to Hulk as Tony wants to save Bruce but somehow Hulk ends up dead and Tony blames Captain Marvel. The inhuman shares another vision concerning Miles and Miles is out to prove that vision wrong but things don't go the way he wanted them to. Miles' father was recruited by SHIELD and now he is missing. This was such an improvement from the first in the series. I love Jessica Jones so I definitely loved her appearance with Luke Cage however brief. I also loved the avengers' story line again even though it was brief, it was amazing. I can't wait to read the next. 4 stars

Maybe they could just join Shield as specialists, they'd get paid and in many ways things would be easier. Miles has a rough time when Ulysses arrives. His predictions really complicated things for all the heroes, but Miles got hit with it harder than everyone. Truly he handled things quite well despite his age and the heroes who were behind Ulysses.

    Vol. 2 was pretty damn good when it adhered to the 'problems with a secret identity' story-line idea (a Spider-Man specialty, no matter which incarnation) that carries over from the previous book. Morales has many conversations in the edition - with his father, with teen superheroine Bombshell ("I'm Bombshell. I blow stuff up." - LOL), and the best, a Luke Cage / Jessica Jones meeting on a rooftop - in which the dialogue is so well-written with its mix of humor and heart.

    So far, the Ulitmates version of Miles Morales was infinitely superior. This just isn't as good, complete with retconning the death of his mother and the addition of his over-the-top grandmother (yech--she even goes so far as to hire a private detective to follow her own grandson! that's not funny or insightful or anything).

    I'm a bit disappointed that the Civil War II event had to take over the narrative in this one, drifting away from the narrative of the first volume a little bit to turn the focus on a new story while also trying to build on some of the threads presented previously.

With that being said, there are some fun moments spread out in the volume but everything felt choppy, like different stories being glued together without a guideline. It was interesting that Brian Michael Bendis gave so much focus on Miles Morales's father and his secret but it also pushed the protagonist all the way behind the scene. The artwork remains stellar and a thrill to gaze at but there are moments where the transition feels wrong, missing pieces between panels or even pages to help the reader understand how things evolve.

The family stuff, Jones stuff all top shelf. Characters: Miles is done so well, he's young, he's real and flawed. It's good. Ganke had a wonderful arc after the fall we had last time. He's a great rock of a character. The rest. Just read it and enjoy these great characters. A solid tie in with real emotions. Onward to the next book!

    Once again, the Miles Morales comic continues to mostly be about friends and family. That's what makes it great. So we get Miles and his school friends and we get Miles and his dad (and mom) and now we even get Miles and the Champions.

It's delightful seeing Bendis write this sort of crossover between two of his major characters, Jessica and Miles (even if I have no idea how it fits in with the continuity of Jessica Jones, Vol. 1: Uncaged!, since there's a major plot point there that seems to be ignored here). And the rest of the comic: it's about Civil War II. The Miles comic is much more embroiled in it than I'd like, with three different issues being about vision fall-out. It really keeps the Miles comic from breathing. But at least Bendis uses the crossover to really drive the growth of both Miles and his supporting cast.

    This is the Civil War II tie in volume, and as usual, the event drags the book down. Honestly though, Bendis makes the best of it, and provides some meaningful story content that both provides more context for CWII and expands on some new solo Miles threads. It's downright impressive how well that dude handles crossover content, and I was pretty surprised at how well written and readable this volume is. It's wordy, but for the sake of characterization.

It's still a lot of fun, and the CWII stuff manages to generate some interesting character growth. You'll have to get over the constant awareness of having missed huge chunks of story between issues, but if you're paying any attention at all, you'll be fine with a healthy does of "oh, I guess that happened."

    Time to go on a Bendis bender! (#4 of 8) Well, look at that, the only decent Civil War II cross-over I've read, probably because it was written by the event writer himself. How marvelous would it have been if this little book had been the Civil War II event in its entirety, and everyone was like, "What?! [Name redacted] and [name redacted] were killed in some flashback sequences in a secondary Spider-Man book?" Minds blown, and everyone's lives are better. Time to go on a Bendis bender!

Nico Leon's artwork is the saving grace here, and while he's no Sara Pichelli, his fluid figures and the lovely colours by Justin Ponsor (I think) make even the most straight forward scenes look great. I feel like, since Miles has joined the Marvel universe properly, other writers have been tackling Miles with more interesting and engaging storylines than Bendis has, which this volume supports entirely.

    I liked it. Not having read the main Civil War Ii event but judging by the reactions, I'd say it's safe to say Bendis is still on top of it with the Spider-Man writing. Wasn't crazy about the whole free will premise to begin with, but we get a more in depth look at Miles to understand he's more a child compared to our adult Peter Parker, especially in his current state and even in his younger days - they are two completely different characters who just happen to share the same superhero name.

    GAH! This is not getting much better. The story starts with the boys talking about the friend zone and Miles talks about how you can move out of the friend zone, but it's understandable that femmes are weary of cismen (my interpretation, but they of course were talking specifically about ciswomen and cismen). It's like Bendis almost gets it, but then dashes in that casual misogyny anyway. The story was super disjointed and hard to follow. The femmes in the story had their personalities dulled wa GAH!

The femmes in the story had their personalities dulled waaaaaay down. Maybe it's just me since I love and read Ms. Marvel and Jessica Jones, but their personalities seemed like a hugely muted version of their characters. Ms. Marvel spends a lot of her time crying and not knowing how to express herself. That's...pretty out of character. Ms. Marvels is entirely a jump first, think later problem solver; not a cry into a puddle. Jessica Jones was vanilla-ed pretty hard. It was disappointing. At least this volume had some nuance to the reactions of people of color. Miles talks about profiling, and sort of segue into racial profiling before pulling it back; Miles is scared of cops because he knows racial profiling for him can be deadly; Luke Cage tells Miles how important it is that there IS a Black Spider-Man and how he needs to be better than his white counterparts (I may have read into his warning, but it seemed he was implying that he needed to not make any missteps as they would not be forgiven); another superhero refers to Iron Man as "another rich white guy telling us what to do," etc. I don't know if it's worth seeing if Bendis pulls it together and gets some sensitivity readers. I probably will because I need to read everything, but shit if this isn't frustrating as hell.

    3* My main issue with this book was that there was that a lot of it was tying in to Civil War II and since Miles playes a pretty big part in that story it’s not tying in in a way that you get everything that is going on without having read Civil War II. If this explanation just sounded confusing then the whole story is even more so. I had to consilt the internet and read up about the Civil War II storyline because otherwise I would have been completely lost...

After reading up on Civil War II I of course already knew most of what was going to happen, so that really also wasn’t ideal. I just found the whole thing to be quite frustrating... But on the other hand there was also a lot I liked about this book. The main thing honestly is just the characters, I love Miles and his friends and also his family. All the characters mess up sometimes but they are also great friends and I loved all the little moments between them. I also really enjoyed it when Miles was dealing with the more personal stuff, like his self-doubt and having to keep a secret from people he loves and all the other issues that come with being a superhero... I also liked the light and fun moments and I quite enjoyed the art. So I‘m really looking forward to the next volume, I just hope it doesn’t have any tie-ins to some big event...

Poor Miles is constantly getting dragged into big events. Every time his latest book starts to get going a big event takes all the joy out of it. This one was much better though. It weaved around the edges of Civil War II and saw how Miles dealt with the events of that story. What pleased me was that there was plenty more beyond this & the book kept it's usual tone. Bendis is giving us a more modern and more angsty version of a high-school Spider-Man than we ever saw with Peter Parker. He never feels good enough and worries here about his darker side (also I liked that Ganke likely solved the vision with a joke). I thought this was a really well balanced event tie-in that explored Miles' role in it yet continued to develop this great character.

This whole thing means that most of the novel is not well connected, nor does it do a good job focusing on Miles. I had high expectations, but honestly did not enjoy this volume.

Just what the young hero needs. His bosses. Well it is the Avengers so.. that is all kinds of crazy. Read this, inner-conflict on so many levels. What a great way to do Spider-Man

    This book should come with a warning of some kind like was done throughout the run of Infinity War, because maybe I'm an idiot for not knowing it but as someone totally disconnected from Civil War 2, this book made no sense at all.

    Another painful entry to the Miles Morales series. This time it’s so painful because there’s an event right in the middle of this trade, and not a very interesting one either. This is why nobody wants to buy monthly’s of their favourite superheroes anymore for the last 4 trades of Miles Morales has had absolutely no story inside of them, just Miles bumbling from one thing to the next thrown around by event after event so often that you hardly know what’s going on even though you’ve read all 200+ Another painful entry to the Miles Morales series.

It’s just ridiculous. Plus, civil war 2 is the most pointless minority report rip off I’ve ever seen. Bendis is so fucking lazy at this point with his marvel titles.
