•  After last issue's huge reveal, what else has happened in the 90 days since the events of issue #7?
•  Why is Hazmat working for Madame Masque...and maybe Mystique and Sabretooth?
•  And how does this issue's cliffhanger change everything again?

    We The Nerdy - Jean-Luc Botbyl Aug 14, 2014

    Plot wise, it's becoming obvious that this series is wrapping up. We've knownthat the tenth issue would be the last for some time, and with next issue being the penultimate issue, there's some set up for the final confrontation.Characters are making their moves, and maneuvering around the board. Fortunately, everything feels natural, and while this issue is largely set up, it doesn't necessarily feel like it is. It's not as if the pot goes nowhere, because it does, with a major revelation towards the end of the issue and a couple more minor advancements earlier in the issue, namely Hazmat and Aiden being brought into the fold of the Masters of Evil's plan by Madame Masque (who's an awesome character, by the way).

    Weekly Comic Book Review - Danny Wall Aug 17, 2014

    The Bottom Line:Displaying the same strengths and weaknesses as previous issues, AvenUnder #8 thankfully capitalizes on the former– delivering a strong premise, key character growth, and a few surprises. The tension is as high as ever, with a distinctive tone that keeps the readers wanting more. The change in artists isn't disruptive, but neither is it immediately winning me over. Read Full Review

    It still smarts to know that Avengers Undercover is ending with issue #10. But the good news is that Dennis Hopeless is transitioning towards his big finale much more smoothly than might have been expected. Read Full Review

    Geeked Out Nation - Jideobi Odunze Aug 13, 2014

    What you really take out of Avengers Undercover by the end of this issue is the fun that can be had while being a villain. In the Marvel Universe we are past the simplistic actions by villains who want to make a quick buck. Avengers Undercover shows what happens when they start thinking big, and also start working as a team. Of course you still have to see how that lasts when it counts the most, but it doesn't change that villain perspective that you don't get to see that often. Whatever comes next now that Zemo has initiated his plan will be something you don't want to miss because as Madame Masque said, it's a game changer. Read Full Review

    Comics Refueled - ironmarco Aug 15, 2014

    While this wasn't necessarily a game changing issue like all the other ones were, there were some considerable developments and the dialogue and action were enjoyable as always. The strength of this series has always been the dark humor, and the evolution of these characters. When this series started it felt like any of the Undercover Avengers could become anything for better or worse. In previous issues we saw the beginnings of these changes as characters killed, lied, and made deals, but with this issue, things slow down and the focus is on cementing these changes. By taking three months to explore what these characters are going through we realize that these aren't phases that these teens are going through. If it wasn't made clear before, it's been made clear now: everything these characters do is real and not everything they do is good, or fair, or smart, which is true of all teenagers.

    I am still so on board with this series, and majorly disappointed that it's ending. Read Full Review

    Comic Vine - Corey 'Undeadpool' Schroeder Aug 13, 2014

    This is a single issue that feels like it should have been at least two issues. I wouldnt have minded taking our time and really seeing where all the former Murder World kids are, particularly with a little more internal monologue and character focus. Im still interested in seeing where this story goes, and I still really like these characters, but this issue felt like it was hurrying both in terms of the writing and the art. Read Full Review

    Another entry without Kev Walker. The art isn't bad but it does not mesh with the previously established style so continuity in the character models feels thrown out the window. If there are only 2 issues to go on this series, why such a hurry to put it out? Does it lead into the next Marvel event? A had a few issues with the plot this time around too. The romance between Hazmat and Anachronism feels like it came out of nowhere. Also, I'm sure Baron Zemo's grand scheme will be reveled shortly, but *spoilers* using the children as bait to lead the Avengers to your secret headquarters seems totally unnecessary.
