    Things for this series are really starting to look up. I was very apprehensive when the book split from the Thunderbolts but now Im starting to come around. Im really hoping that U.S. Agent steps in as team leader and points the group in the right direction or maybe manipulates them whatever works. Its obvious this world needs heroes and villains may just be the right ones for the job. Read Full Review

    I was worried that taking this series into a different dimension so soon after its intertemporal romp was a mistake. Two issues in, and I'm already eating my words. Parker knows exactly what he's doing with these characters, taking them into situations that will test them as characters and push them in different directions, and after his intense character work with the Thunderbolts, there's no surprise that he is replicating that success with the Dark Avengers.

    Weekly Comic Book Review - Hugo Robberts Lariviere Jan 18, 2013

    This is a nice issue with some very good concepts and ever-improving art that could manage to get some more focus on the team that is titling the series. Read Full Review

    Major Spoilers - Dave Conde Jan 19, 2013

    The art was pretty good, with only the occasional wonky face to complain about. The fight scenes were decent though brief. There just wasn't time to do more than flash a little action. The highlight of the issue was the character design, which is always a big draw when a story is set in an alternate universe. As I mentioned before, there's not a lot of time in a story like this to get into the minutia of the setting, so you imply a lot of depth with allusions ("When I took charge of Mole Man's kingdom...") and with design-it's a minor "Holy crap" moment when we first see the Thing looking every bit the King of the Monsters.THE BOTTOM LINE: Can you dig it?

    Comics Bulletin - Danny Djeljosevic Jan 22, 2013

    Dark Avengers #185 also introduces a rehabilitated U.S.Agent, which I don't think anybody was clamoring for -- I was happy with what little of John Walker was left -- but I'm kind of pleased to see that the Dark Avengers now have a Dark Captain America. The more I think about this book, the more I like it. Read Full Review

    Okay, first things first, I am a HUGE sucker for dystopian alternate dimensional stories, so this storyline is right up my alley.  With that said, I'm not sure how many other comic fans this kind of book would appeal to...  I mean, there aren't any big name characters, and the characters who are here aren't even in the 616 Marvel U...  So yeah, while I liked this issue, and am enjoying this storyline, I worry that I may be alone there.  Anyway, I liked Strange's plan, setting Iron Man and Thing against each other, I like US Agent getting the use of his limbs back, hell, I liked most everything here.  This was a perfectly acceptable comic book, nothing more, nothing less.
