    Avengers vs. X-Men Versus #3 was another entertaining read. This title has lived up to the promise of being nothing but fun. Pure and simple. And this is exactly why I am having such a wonderful time reading this title. Putting the fun back in comics is something that both Marvel and DC should be making a priority. I love the unapologetic approach of this title. If you like pure super hero slufgest entertainment then definitely check out AvX Versus #3. You will not be disappointed. Read Full Review

    The Comic Book Revue - Jay Mattson Jun 14, 2012

    In the first totally enjoyable issue of AvX: VS, Colossus takes on the Thing while Black Widow and Magik take the fight to the demons in Limbo. While I previously lamented about how both Coloss-onaut and Thing have already been featured in VS, their fight was actually quite enjoyable. Similarly, Black Widow and Magik are generally evenly matched. Read Full Review

    Newsarama - David Pepose Jun 13, 2012

    With one fight feeling a little old hat and the other ready to knock your socks off, the end result of AvX: VS is still a win, albeit not the cleanest one. Those who buy this book are doing it not for plot development or even so much character dynamics, but seeing a good old-fashioned throwdown drawn by the best and the brightest. Right now, they've got half that. In order to keep the momentum going, Marvel has to keep the brackets shuffled a little bit better than this. Read Full Review

    IGN - Jesse Schedeen Jun 13, 2012

    So once again, AvX: VS. delivers two enjoyable superhero fights that fill in some of the gaps of the main series. On the other hand, both stories are too simple and brief to fill out a $3.99 comic. Yost's segment at least strives for more dramatic depth, but it's still over and done with almost as soon as it begins. If meatier, more character-driven tales aren't in the cards with this book, then maybe what VS. needs is either more than two segments per issue or a lower cover price. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Resources - Doug Zawisza Jun 18, 2012

    Of the three issues of "AVX: VS," this was the one I enjoyed the most, but it was not without flaws. This is a great superhero slugfest comic, but it's also easily forgettable and doesn't make a strong case for re-reading. The matchups have been shown no less than a handful of times in various issues of different comics, but the creative teams assigned to those fights in this issue were masterfully matched. I'd like to see more of Loeb and McGuinness working with the Thing and likewise for the Dodsons with Magik. Halfway through this series we've seen six matchups (three of which have featured Juggerlossus) and two of the best looking fights are in "AVX: VS" #3. Read Full Review

    This is one hard issue to put a number to, seeing as it is a combination of two polar opposites, but here we go…. Read Full Review

    Two decent fights that make the best of the odd matchups and venue. The book could have easily been raised to a higher level without the ridiculous translation stunt. The Loeb story is the better of the two but both rate among the best in the series so far. This is a good, old fashioned, comic book fight and its tremendous fun. Read Full Review

    X-Man's Comic Blog - Jason Todd Jun 15, 2012

    This issue was kind of a let-down for me. The prospect of Red Hulk vs. JuggerColossus was way more interesting to me than seeing The Thing again, I get that they needed some wins for the X-Men and probably didn't wanna job Rulk out to Colossus but seeing two people who have already had fights when we have people like Wolverine, Thor, Hawkeye, Beast, Cyclops, Storm, Emma Frost and other people that haven't had fights yet seemed odd. Add that in with the fact that Widow basically kicked tons of ass and was beaten by a sucker punch and that left a sour taste in my mouth. Once again, I realize that was done to tie up the score I guess, but I hated seeing Widow taken out like that. Plus, a lot of the dialogue in that fight was in Russian because they're trying to push that Augmented Reality App, not everyone has a Smart Phone Marvel, and those that do, may not feel like scanning a page to read a comic they already purchased...

    While McGuiness does his best to make the punches look god, the lack of substance in the script remains too big a hole to fill. Read Full Review
