    It definitely has next to nothing to do with "Original Sin" itself, (what the hell does in the first place) but it looks like it'll become an interesting forums for some neat one-shots to spring forth and, if they're anything like the Deathlok or Young Avengers segments seen here, we're definitely going to get some entertaining stuff.

    Geeked Out Nation - John Tuppen Jun 11, 2014

    The final story 'Buried Memory' featuring Lockjaw finishes off Original Sins #1 and is an epic that features cameos from no less than Captain America, Luke Cage, Ms. Marvel, Emma Frost, Black Panther, Johnny Storm, Spider-Man, the Vulture, and Iron Man. It traverses from Earth, to underground, and to the moon. Truly it is a modern epic that will live on for decades to come. I jest; while all the locations and cameos are indeed there, it is really a bit of comic relief to round out the book. It is as inoffensive as it is charming and not a bad way to cap things off but in the end, like the rest of the content in Original Sins #1, it doesn't exactly feel like essential reading.

    Overall, I'm a fan of this series. As an anthology, it gives us some cool insights into characters that we don't see too often, but as a Young Avengers fan, I'm very excited to see where this story is going. This trio was not one that we saw very much of in the past, so there are plenty of underlying dynamics at play here, especially since David previously showed feelings for the happily taken Teddy. I'm excited to see where this showdown with the Hood leads and even more curious to know what the big sin of the Young Avengers will be. Read Full Review

    While I can't give anything more positive than a shrug to Deathlok, the Young Avengers section is brilliant and no amount of bland filler will take away from that. Despite that, I'm leaving the scoring in the hands of the Math Gnomes, who tell me that a score of 9.5 for Young Avengers is brought down by Deathlok/Lockjaw's scores of 5 to a total of 6.7. Unfortunate. Still check out the book though; Young Avengers is that good. Read Full Review

    Fanboys Inc - Cody Mudge Jun 13, 2014

    As a tie-in to Marvels latest event Original Sinsdoesn't really succeed. The first story was weak and its connection cursory. The second story was predicated upon your love for the characters involved and once again doesnt seem to have too much to do with the event being written by Jason Aaron. The final story, while brilliant, doesnt really fit in either because its more a story about a forgotten love than a hidden secret or sin. The entertainment value found in this book is just enough to justify picking it up, that is as long as youre interested in the stories being told, but this is far from one of the must-haves of the week.

    "Original Sins" doesn't transcend its role as the catch-all for less popular corners of the Marvel Universe, but it doesn't do any of its characters a disservice either. It's a fine enough book that gives a glimpse into how "Original Sin" will impact the out-of-spotlight MU characters, but it definitely isn't a must-buy. Read Full Review

    The lockjaw story was fun, but short and mostly fluff. Deathlok was a solid story, and the art gave great mood. I hadn't read Young Avengers in a while so I'm really put off by Prodigy especially, but overall it wasn't too bad when it wasn't trying too hard.

    Deathlok was interesting, but just a preview for his series. Young Avengers and Lockjaw were both silly and pointless.
