    It's not an issue that drives any societal issues to debate. It's mostly action, but there's a plot within it " a great plot at that. Read Full Review

    This roller coaster of Avengers Vs. X-Men is firing on all cylinders with issue #7 and I hope the ride continues at this quality level the rest of the way. Read Full Review

    Sorry for the wait guys, I shall be writing more frequently now that I have returned from my misadventures. That being said, if you have been waiting for something to happen in this series, Round five is definitely a place to start and these two issues are where you should be feeling its prime. I love these two issues and I can't wait to pick up nine next week. Round seven gets a 9 out of 10 and round eight gets a 10 out of 10. Only because I just can't wait to see what Xavier has in store for the X-Men. Read Full Review

    Chuck's Comic Of The Day - Chuck Jul 5, 2012

    Still an interesting read, but this series has a habit of repeating itself - and this issue, as artfully done as it is, just seems like more of the same from last issue. Read Full Review

    Comic Vine - Tony 'G-Man' Guerrero Jul 4, 2012

    I'm finding myself getting glued to this series. There was excitement when the first issue came out but soon we were overwhelmed with the feeling that not a lot was actually happening. Now that five members of the X-Men have a portion of the Phoenix Force, it's a whole new game. The Avengers are being hunted and imprisoned. Of course with Captain America leading the underdogs and Scarlet Witch on hand keeps the excitement elevated. On a sort of unrelated note, with the announcement of "Marvel Now," where there'll new jumping on points, etc, you can't help but wonder if events from this story will lead to that. This is what we've been waiting for in this series. There is major poop getting thrown at the fan. If you're going to have a major crossover with a lot of hype, it's great to see some pay off. I'm back on board with AvX and can't wait to see what's going to happen next. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Bin - Andy Frisk Jul 6, 2012

    After a pretty slow start, AvX is really starting to pick up the pace and tell a good story. The best thing about this story is that it will still have resonance after it ends since Marvel NOW!, the event following AvX isnt a reboot unlike The New 52 was. Read Full Review

    Unleash The Fanboy - Harrison Rawdin Jul 11, 2012

    This latest issue is a solid little jaunt into the Marvel universe. Kudos to the creative team for successfully creating a bleak atmosphere and making thislatestouting a really good read. Recommended. Read Full Review

    Marvel Disassembled - Mike Jul 4, 2012

    Olivier Coipel's art really stands out this issue as well, though I initially mistook Tony Stark for Wolverine. It was probably the wifebeater. All in all, it's a very busy issue, but Fraction manages to pace the story well. My one complaint with the story is how all the other X-Men are blindly following Cyclops and the rest of the Phoenix Five. Though it's possible that Emma is using her abilities to control them. Considering thePhoenixForce and Scarlet Witch's unpredictability, it's clear big changes to the Marvel universe are coming. And with the upcoming "Marvel Now" initiative, one can't help but wonder; is this event building up towards aFlashpoint-style ending? Read Full Review

    AvX # 7 continues the devastation and slowly starts building the crescendo which is act three. There are a few problems with the issue but all that can be covered by the lush artwork of Olivier Coipel. Read Full Review

    Comics Crux - Nick Verissimo May 10, 2013

    This is a really cool issue to be found in the thick of all of the battles in AvX and it really has kept me interested in where all of this is going to go. Issue 5 and 6 had ton of big moments in it, but its the deeper seeded issues that have me interested in what the Marvel universe will look like when all of this is said in done. Read Full Review

    Crave Online - Andy Hunsaker Jul 5, 2012

    Questionable motivations and suspect contrivances make it hard to connect with the story being told, but there are much cooler things happening here than in most summer comic stunts, so we'll take what we can get. Read Full Review

    IGN - Jesse Schedeen Jul 5, 2012

    As with nearly every chapter of this event, Avengers vs. X-Men #7 is guilty of glossing over certain vital parts of the story in its charge forward. Even so, the series remains in better shape than it was during Act 1. I would be surprised if issue #8 were to kill that momentum given the groundwork Fraction has laid here. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Revolution - Kevin Jul 6, 2012

    Outside a few flaws that continue to hamper the overall story Avengers vs. X-Men #7 was actually a highly entertaining read. Now that we have gotten past the halfway point of Marvels mega event things have picked up in quality with Fraction doing a very good job making the story even bigger. With solid characterization of the Phoenix-5 and most of the Avengers I am now looking forward to what happens next as there are a lot of interesting possibilities stemming off what happens in Avengers vs. X-Men #7.

    Comic Book Therapy - MrComicBook Jul 5, 2012

    The biggest point in the “good” column is that the book has become more self contained. While reading tie-ins would help, it's not necessary with this issue (and #6). While I have been reading a fair number of tie-ins, it's good to see an event become more self contained. Read Full Review

    The Comic Book Revue - Jay Mattson Jul 4, 2012

    Avengers vs. X-Men #7 does a fine job as a bridge issue between more important narrative aspects. Last issue, it was the reintroduction to the world under the leadership of the Phoenix Five and in two weeks, it will be the invasion of Wakanda by Namor and the Atlanteans. For an issue with little substance to spread out over 22 pages, Matt Fraction does the best job be can with the content he's given. It's unfortunate that Olivier Coipel's fantastic penciling couldn't be more readily employed, but even his 'neutral' faces for characters have so much more life in them than some artists' most emotionally charged heroes.

    Comic Book Resources - Greg McElhatton Jul 5, 2012

    "Avengers vs. X-Men" #7 is full of sound and fury, but unlike "Macbeth" I wouldn't say it's signifying nothing. Rather, it's the soundtrack to the latest surround sound, IMAX, mega action flick. If you know what it is going in, you'll find something to enjoy. If you're looking for a thoughtful insight into the differences between the two teams and their methods, though, that's for a different comic. Read Full Review

    Comics: The Gathering - lucstclair Jul 5, 2012

    Seems like this series has been going on forever, but still an enjoyable enough read to merit a 3 star rating. Written by Jason Aaron, Brian Michael Bendis, Ed Brubaker, Matt Fraction & Jonathan Hickman. From Marvel Comics. Read Full Review

    ComicList - Brandon Borzelli Jul 7, 2012

    This event is really a dud. The issues so far have all been average, but the sum of the parts are just not adding up to a consistent and satisfying story. Some of the strange things in this book really amplify that feeling, such as Namor and Emma Frost kissing. Why? I don't know and it isn't explained at all. So many comic book pages and so little explanation make for a frustrating read. This story at least has some good fighting moments and some nice bickering. This is a really average book.

    Major Spoilers - Matthew Peterson Jul 7, 2012

    Avengers Vs. X-Men Round 7 is what wrestling announcer Tazz would call a rocket-bus, hitting me with lots of action, desperate heroes trying desperate gambles, and intrigue, but fails to give me enough grounding or background to fully parse everything that happens. Read Full Review

    Behind The Panels - Richard Gray Jul 8, 2012
