    All that said, I can definitely say I'm much more looking forward to the next issue of this book as the Phoenix approaches and Thor will eventually be thrust back to Earth ahead of the destructive force to warn the heroes already gathered there. Read Full Review

    Remender always brings us interesting stories, though, and he does have an eye for canon as well, so it will bear keying into Secret Avengers #27 and beyond to see how this shakes out and eventually leads Carol to become the new Captain Marvel. Read Full Review

    Comic Vine - Tony 'G-Man' Guerrero May 23, 2012

    In some ways, this was one of the stranger AvX crossovers. The main thing, there aren't any X-Men (I'm not counting Beast since he's here as an Avenger). Remender's story takes us away from that battle as we see the apparent return of Captain Marvel. Knowing that Carol Danvers is about to get her own series under that same title, you can't help but take in every little bit carefully and wonder how these events will affect that series. Renato Guedes' art is quite the spectacle. There were a couple character designs I felt didn't quite work but I need to see more Guedes art on a monthly basis. It might be a minor quibble but I wish these crossovers flowed better with the main series. The feeling that we're jumping around in this issue and others when put alongside the main AVENGERS VS. X-MEN gives it all a disjointed feeling. Regardless, I want to enjoy this tale on its own because there is so much here worth checking out. Read Full Review

    Although the outcome of this story is known (to an extent) thanks to scenes from other Marvel titles which come afterwards, it'll be interesting to see how things shake out. At present, Captain Marvel's fate seems uncertain, and if the character is facing a re-introduction it's not the horrifying prospect it could have seemed. Similarly, finding out how this story affects the "Secret Avengers" cast will be an incentive to come back. It's rare you get to read about superheroes failing, but the framework of "AvX" means that there's space for that to happen. I can't wait to see what Remender does with that. Read Full Review

    IGN - Jesse Schedeen May 23, 2012

    There's a lot of good character work on tap in this arc. Unfortunately, it's difficult to see what larger purpose it all serves. This arc doesn't fit very well into the confines of Avengers vs. X-Men, and the fact that it takes before many current AvX threads suggests that little of lasting consequence will actually come of this tie-in. The sooner this book can resume its ongoing conflicts, the better. Read Full Review

    Marvel Disassembled - Kyle Mc May 25, 2012

    Apart from that I enjoyed the issue to a degree but not to the point that I wouldn't say that it was really that great but the art is what made me decrease my score. Read Full Review

    Weekly Comic Book Review - Alex Evans May 26, 2012

    Wonderful art and a wonderful setting clash with a sadly forgettable story that is a substantial drop from the “last stand” awesomeness of last month's narrative. Read Full Review

    Chuck's Comic Of The Day - Chuck May 26, 2012

    I can't recommend this one - the story just rambles all over and never really gets anywhere. Even the occasional glimpse of the Phoenix - in the sky, no less - can't jump start this one. Read Full Review

    Comicosity - Aaron Long May 25, 2012

    All in all, this book is a shining example of what I consider to be the worst points of the Avengers Vs. X-Men event. This issue only connects to the main event in the loosest sense, drawing on an iconic character for virtually no reason and drawing some major characters into a fray away from the main event. This arc has to pull a serious 180 to save itself. Read Full Review

    Your enjoyment of Secret Avengers #27 will greatly vary depending on if you are a Mar-Vell fan or not. Mar-Vell fans will probably be annoyed that our hero is being used as a cheap gimmick. Again. On the other hand, regular readers will probably find Secret Avengers #27 to be an entertaining big event tie-in issue. As a general rule, big event tie-in issue are often crap stories that are heavily editorial mandated that are imposed upon writers and usually break the flow of whatever story the writer had been trying to build on the title. However, Remender does the best he can and actually delivers an issue that offers up a quality classic super hero story. Read Full Review
