    Still, this is the best direction I've seen this book going in, and it's incredibly promising. Read Full Review

    Ultimately, Brubaker solidifies Steele's role in the series moving forward and sets the stage for potentially great stories. The question of when and if those stories will be told is another matter entirely. Read Full Review

    Rogers' big concluding speech about the ensuing moral complexities from his job as "America's Top Cop" feels vaguely like Spencer talking through his character. Obviously, it's not a one-to-one ratio between an indie comics guy who quickly and recently became a mainstream comics wunderkind and a superhero turned government agent -- there's less Vonnegut-style time-travel, for one thing -- but it feels like both Spencer and the former Captain America are addressing the horrid base criticism of "selling out" (which I don't really think is possible in the comics industry), but Spencer/Rogers offer a satisfying answer: I don't know, but I'll do my best.

    This issue was hit and miss, in relatively equal proportion. There's so much potential here with these characters, but this isn't the best use of this book, and if you're only going to feature two of the Secret Avengers, and one of them in an action sequence set in the past, plus focus on a guest-starring antagonist, there needs to be far more meat on the issue's bones to whet the appetite of the reader.

    Comic Book Resources - Chad Nevett May 1, 2011

    "Secret Avengers" was a book without a strong purpose or direction aside from 'fighting the Shadow Council' and this issue doesn't inspire confidence in the concept working without that large enemy standing opposite the group. As debuts, and 'point one' issues, go, this is a disappointment. Read Full Review
