    Comic Vine - Corey 'Undeadpool' Schroeder Feb 26, 2014

    Forget continuity, forget the whys and whens and just imagine what the NEXT issue of this title is going to be. I have scarcely been more excited for a mainstream superhero book because before I didnt know what was going to happen next, but I was sure it would all work out. Now I just dont know whats going to happen next. Read Full Review

    Comic Spectrum - Hank Johnson Mar 2, 2014

    Overall, since issue #6, this series has been nothing short of superb. Remender and McNiven deliver a powerful story that is both creative and intelligent. Being an avid comic reader for over 20 years, this issue has one of the best payoffs I have ever had the pleasure to read. Will the events in this issue and series be undone? The bottom line is they have to be. However, when I read this issue, those thoughts did not even enter my mind because of Remender's incredible storytelling and McNiven's magnificent art. This book is one of my favorite ongoing series being published today and this issue is a true high water mark for the series. Read Full Review

    Weekly Comic Book Review - Hugo Robberts Lariviere Feb 26, 2014

    With a rather effective visual approach, a great balance between action, repercussions and a decidedly unbelievable conclusion, the creative team delivers a surprising and memorable conclusion that is assured to leave readers asking for more. Disconcerting, but fascinating despite it all. Read Full Review

    Hero Nuggets - Joe 'Big Daddy' Natoli Feb 26, 2014

    Uncanny Avengers #17 is utterly well done, and will leave you awestruck! The issues wraps up the arc, makes a social commentary using your favorite heroes, and looks great in the process. Sure it ends on a rather jarring note and doesn't fit into current continuity anywhere, but f*** it, you'll enjoy it all the same. Go back to Issue #6 and spend an afternoon enjoying the build and payoff! Read Full Review

    Crave Online - Iann Robinson Feb 28, 2014

    Artist Steve McNiven is allowed to let loose in this issue. McNiven has always had a strong comic style, good with action and faces, but here, there is no holding back. From the glorious Captain American splash page, to the so-brutal-you-can-feel-it bashing between Eimin and Thor, McNiven nails every panel. Ships, multiple characters, explosions, galactic fighting and even up close and personal fisticuffs – this is some of the most exciting work McNiven has given us thus far. Read Full Review

    IGN - Jesse Schedeen Feb 26, 2014

    The creative team are definitely their own worst enemies in this case. Uncanny Avengers #17 isn't flawed so much as just "not quite as excellent as issue #16." It still offers an intense, bloody, painful end to "Ragnarok Now." Perhaps none of the big twists in this storyline will actually stick when all is said and done, but with a story this entertaining, who cares? Read Full Review

    We The Nerdy - Matt Sculthorpe Mar 3, 2014

    Uncanny Avengers 17 continues the pace and themes Remender has set since the beginning of Ragarok Now. Sure, the events feel like they will be fixed in the upcoming issues, but it still a hell of a ride getting there. McNivens art only reinforces the points made throughout and shows he knows how to handle action like the best of them.Where it leaves off is sure to have readers eager waiting the next, not just for the story, but to see just how far the creative team can take the events they have set in motion and hopefully in they can stick the landing.
