    Comic Booked - David Hinspeter May 24, 2014

    This pitch has been a long time coming. This series has really been so focused on tying up the loose ends, and though it has, it has also felt like misdirection. Because this concerted attempt at corruption has been the point, ever since the announcement that one of the Survivors would actually cross the fence by the end of the series. I loved every second of this issue, and the suspense created from the slow building to this invitation to the Masters of Evil was both thick and palpable. Bring on next month! Read Full Review

    Weekly Comic Book Review - Danny Wall May 15, 2014

    The Bottom Line:Issue #4 proves that there is a grand story being told here, with each chapter providing a flow that seems to force our characters in an unavoidably tragic direction. The story beats are nearly perfect to balance the tension and the tender moments, helped by the expressive art and deliberate color choices. Everything is tinged with a very real sense that these characters are both trying to do the best they can while at the same time dealing with their very limited and high-stakes choices.

    Avengers Undercover #4 ends on a note where you can certainly agree with what is being done for these characters and the story itself. Hopeless obviously cares for these characters and it shows when there's so much depth stacked over each of them as time goes by. They could have all fallen one-dimensional and yet their interactions with each other and the world help to shape who they might become with the right or wrong influence. Read Full Review

    IGN - Jesse Schedeen May 15, 2014

    It's a busy, eclectic issue. And as with the previous three chapters, it shines best when Dennis Hopeless focuses on the character dynamics both among the team and with their friends and family (kudos on the Runaways reunion). Read Full Review

    Newsarama - Draven Katayama (loudlysilent) May 15, 2014

    This issue transitions us out from under the weight of the Arcade-driven plot of this title and of Avengers Arena, and into a lighter, quirkier story with hellishly handsome Daimon Hellstrom and a very smooth-talking Baron Zemo. Hopeless's direction is promising. Read Full Review

    Overall, 'Avengers Undercover' is starting a lot of debates. It's touching on a number of hot topics, but it's hard to argue that it isn't doing it in an interesting and engaging way. Dennis Hopeless and Kev Walker are really onto something here and I'm really enjoying this series so far. I'm really looking forward to getting into these kids' heads to see who really feels that Zemo is right. Read Full Review

    Hopeless plays Zemo as a masterful propagandist and truly leaves readers shouting at "Avengers Undercover" #4's final page. Although the cast is small and populated by characters I could care less about, Hopeless scripts in enough humanity to bring me back for the next issue. Read Full Review

    So good to see Kev Walker back. Shame he couldn't draw last issue.

    Somehow Avengers Undercover has become one of Marvel's best titles. Everything in this issue comes together nicely: Hopeless's plot is simple but well paced, the characters feel real, and the art is exceptional. Marvel needs to ease up on the schedule a bit so we can have Kev Walker for every issue, please.
