    Have you been reading Mighty Avengers lately? You really need to be reading Mighty Avengers. It's character-driven, easy to get into, as Al Ewing delivers his barely-needed exposition fast and then lets the White Tiger have her day Read Full Review

    Praying for Gideon Mace is an understatement right now. Mighty Avengers does what it does best and cranks that knob high when things are about to get intense. This fight started out personal, and now it has turned into something much more than that by the end of the issue. Al Ewing gives you this team, but he also gives you heroes that standout in this crowd as those you care for as they deal with their personal problems and deal with how these problems affect them as a member of the team. Whatever comes next will be a defining moment for the Mighty Avenger's future. Read Full Review

    I had said that last issue was definitely not the books best, well, this one may just be. Its certainly up there. If nothing else its definitely a nice salve for anyone who might have been a bit disappointed by the lack of action last issue. And it has given me high hopes for the rest of the arc.

    This isnt to say the issue isnt worth reading. Im going to take a very strange stance and say that, despite my above complaints, this is still a great book with some amazing writing and some incredible art, the fact that I still enjoyed it as much as I did despite knowing very little about its core character is a testament to how well it does. And those absolutely carry this into the realm where it can be recommended as I still care about the group as a whole and I care about, and am invested in, their dynamic and their future stories.

    Al Ewing keeps things crackling with dialogue and well-thought-out storytelling, while Valerio Schiti gives us a very impressive look at just how capable White Tiger is as she tears through Power Man, Iron Fist, Luke Cage and She-Hulk with an almost stunning ease and a certainly kinetic look. Mighty Avengers continues to be the place to go for the more traditional, banter-filled, character-based superhero team action while Jonathan Hickman's main Avengers book deal with really heavy world-ending plots. It's a great, fun book and it's worth your time. Read Full Review

    Multiversity Comics - Vince Ostrowski Feb 28, 2014

    “Mighty Avengers” has been a relatively low-key title in that it doesn't hold much weight in the events of the greater Marvel 616. Even its recent foray into ‘Infinity' didn't do a whole lot in the grand scheme of things. What “Mighty Avengers” is is a compelling showcase for some characters that aren't playing big roles at Marvel right now. White Tiger is a fascinating character with a past worth exploring and it's nice to see her given that chance. Ewing hasn't been at Marvel long, but he's proving himself to have the scripting and structural chops to be the next big player, and along with Schiti, is quietly crafting a scrappy title with a lot of heart that I hope gets the attention it deserves.

    Comic Book Resources - Doug Zawisza Feb 27, 2014

    Cortex Incorporated makes another appearance as this issue leaves the team subject to what appears to be infighting. True, circumstances are manipulated against them by forces within and outside of the team, but to the casual observer, it appears as though things are simply going wrong. Ewing, however, has the team right where he wants them and is apparently having a fun time writing this bunch. It's nice to see Falcon, Iron Fist, She-Hulk and White Tiger get some panel time again. The fact that it all happens in the same book is a definite plus. Read Full Review

    Population Go - Chris Lemmerman Mar 3, 2014

    This little two-part story looked like it was going to be a diversion from the rest of the Mighty Avengers story, but it turns out that it is actually full of establishing story points that will haunt us for the rest of the series' run, with new villains and new complications, topped off with the best art this series has seen since it started. Whilst it's a shame that Schiti isn't the regular artist on this series, at least it's a comfort to know that Ewing's tight plotting and great dialogue will be here for the long run.
