    Comic Vine - Corey 'Undeadpool' Schroeder Dec 18, 2013

    This book is an incredibly intense experience and I enjoy the continuing notion of Captain America being reticent or even unable to give up the reins of leadership and the team doesnt cohere as well as others, but thats part of the appeal. These are people with wildly different views on the world and it makes sense that they wouldnt see eye-to-eye on everything. We also get more absolutely gruesome visuals from the newly risen Sentry, which are gloriously gut-churning. I also love how a ton of these events are tied back to the very start of all these in ways both subtle and overt. Read Full Review

    But like I said - bloodlust can only take you so far, and if anything, Remender shows his hand a little more than he needs to, almost as if he's reassuring us that things will be fixed at the end of the day. Well, at the very least, some things. And that's what's exciting about Uncanny Avengers - this is a book that dives deep into Marvel lore and brings back something exciting, throwing together mismatched characters, histories and ideas and seeing what kinds of sparks fly. With the Rapture at their heels, the Uncanny Avengers may be down, but this reader sure as heck is not out. Read Full Review

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

    Thanks to a rather impressive action, some very decent characterization and a good dose of payoffs, the creative team manages to bring one of the best issues of this series yet. A treat for those that were following this series hoping it would get better. Read Full Review

    This story is dutifully moving forward while the stakes are raising, proving that you don't need a line-wide crossover to make a big event. Tight, high concept storytelling and strong art can always win the day. Read Full Review

    IGN - Jesse Schedeen Dec 19, 2013

    There is a nagging sense that is starting to grow while reading this series that all of this death and destruction will ultimately be undone. Even more so now that Remender finally begins to reflect the wider Marvel Universe and offer clues as to when exactly this story is taking place relative to the rest of the Avengers and X-Men franchises. That's the nature of the game in any superhero comic that deals heavily in time travel. But lasting deaths and consequences are hard to come by in the Marvel Universe, so all that really matters is that the ride is an entertaining one. Read Full Review

    Nerds Unchained - Magen Cubed Dec 20, 2013

    Despite some bumps and bruises, Uncanny Avengers #15 is another tight and fairly consistent chapter in Remenders arc. Its energetic and action-packed, and definitely uses the controversial last issue as a sound springboard in moving forward. McNivens art continues to really move the title in a positive direction, and make for a solid read all the way around. Read Full Review

    Hero Nuggets - Joe 'Cannoli' Natoli Dec 20, 2013

    'Uncanny Avengers' has been a wishy-washy series (for me), but has finally reached a point that feels important. The book begins to set up the after effects of the deaths from the last issue and manages to take the stakes to an even greater level. Read this book separate from the other 616 books and witness a story in which the characters are dragged through sh*t and still fight the good Marvel fight. Read Full Review

    Comic Spectrum - Shawn Hoklas Dec 20, 2013

    With the big Infinity and Battle of the Atom events that just ended, this series sometimes feels like it gets lost in everything else that's happening in the Marvel Universe. Ironically, this series feels epic almost each and every month. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Resources - Kelly Thompson Dec 20, 2013

    Despite everyone involved bringing their A-game and really trying to sell the story, it doesn't quite work. The massive suspension of disbelief is far too great a request at this point, and once broken there's nothing for it to stand on. The book doesn't feel epic and important the way that the double page spread credits/title page leads readers to believe. Add to that an inability to recover from recent apparent deaths, and I find myself not caring about the fate of Earth, even if I believed Remender was allowed to "end it all." Read Full Review
