    Scott's story is still starring in the overall plot, but the outside situations are starting to be shown in full force. Plus, I'm a big fan of Eaton's work anyway, so the art on this issue was pretty darn good. Read Full Review

    Marvel Disassembled - Mike Oct 24, 2012

    As the series movies along, it's clear it's focusing on Cyclops more than anything, but by the end of this issue it seems like it's becoming more of an X-Men title than a AVX title. I mean, yeah there's that Iron Man scene, but everything else is firmly focused on the X-Men and their circle. Seems like the Avengers got off easy this conflict. Read Full Review

    Things are shaping up in AvX: Consequences. Gillen is clearly laying down some groundwork for the events to come and if you though Scott didn't have a plan when he was captured after the events of AvX, think again. Apparently, being a martyr and a political prisoner isn't all that Cyclops has in store. Read Full Review

    The art and colors in this series are good and the story seems to be taking off a little bit. Issue number #3 is worth reading and hopefully 4 and 5 can salvage the series. Read Full Review

    Scot Eaton handles the artwork this week. His style falls closely in line with issue #2 -- solidly rendered, but not particularly flashy or memorable. Like Tom Raney in issue #1, Eaton seems to struggle with Captain America's overly busy new costume. Thankfully, it's a new costume we probably won't be seeing after this book wraps. Read Full Review

    ComicList - Brandon Borzelli Oct 27, 2012

    There are a lot of unknowns as to the end point for this mini-series. Even if this all ends exactly where it started (a common tactic for these post event mortems) the book is still an entertaining read. It's providing character exploration for one of the key characters and those he interfaces with. Plus, the book gives a good look at the "what happens next" aspect of the Avengers versus X-Men crossover. This is an enjoyable book. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Resources - Andy Liegl Oct 29, 2012

    As a direct epilogue to "AvX," Consequences" succeeds where the "Fear Itself" Point One issues and "Fearless" maxiseries missed their beats -- it builds on the event as opposed to eradicating it, giving readers a solid followup story dissecting the ramifications "AvX" has had on the Marvel Universe's major players.

    ScienceFiction.com - Ben Silverio Oct 31, 2012

    I find what Kieron Gillen is doing with Cylops' character to be so interesting. A lot of people viewed Scott as a boy scout, but Gillen is throwing that perception out the window. Obviously, Scott and Emma Frost have been corrupted by the Phoenix Force, so that has a lot to do with the changes, but after years of somewhat staying the same, the change was necessary.

    I also maintain that $3.99 is a bit steep for this, even if there is a "Free Digital Copy Offer" as "part of" that $3.99. Read Full Review

    Unleash The Fanboy - Harrison Rawdin Oct 25, 2012

    AVX: Consequences #3 is an issue that's dripping with unnecessary fluff, but to be honest the creative team handles it well enough that you almost forget that what you're reading is circling the same ground as the previous two outings. But this comic book at the end of the day succeeds at entertaining its audience and for that reason this releasesqueaksby with a recommendation. Read Full Review
