    Of course, it's not over (thank God). There are still many things to play out and questions to be answered (like what happens to Planet X next? What about Havok and Wasp's child? What will they do about Kang?) But for this one issue, those questions don't matter. Sit back and enjoy the ride because it doesn't get much better. Read Full Review

    By the end of this you’ll feel as played as the characters in the story, but that’s a good thing. A very good thing. Read Full Review

    PopMatters - Jack Fisher Jul 15, 2014

    All too often, overly complicated stories have mixed results. Like trying to scramble an egg with a pin, the finished product rarely justifies the complexity of the methods involved in making it. But Uncanny Avengers #21, for all its complications, has incredibly satisfying results. The epic struggle, the personal drama, and the sheer scale of the narrative come together in such a powerful manner that it's more than worth the confusion. It might have been nothing more than an elaborate stage play for Kang, but it still put on a hell of a show. Read Full Review

    While the issue may get to its end too quickly, what an absolutely jaw-dropping end it is. Remender managed to answer one cliffhanger with an even grander, more chest-tightening one. Im back to having absolutely no idea whats coming next and, while I wouldve liked to have gotten there just bit more slowly, I am fully onboard with whatever Remender has planned forwhat will likely be an incredible, stunning conclusion. Acua does his heaviest lifting yet, along with White, holds the issue up high and proud with some of the most dramatic, kinetic visuals of the week. Read Full Review

    I think that Uncanny Avengers would be better served with a different artist, but it’s still one of Marvel’s most consistently entertaining books. That’s more than enough to keep me coming back. Read Full Review

    Newsarama - George Marston Jun 25, 2014

    In this, the endgame of its biggest arc, Uncanny Avengers is proving that it is truly the Avengers title that best delivers the kind of thrills and stories the team really deserve. That it's almost also the best X-Men book on the stands speaks volumes as well. There are times throughout Uncanny Avengers #21 where it's easy to forget that there was ever a line between the two camps, and that is to the book's tremendous benefit. In many ways, Remender's self-contained saga of time and space is a better event than Marvel's big event books, and when it comes to Earth's Mightiest Heroes, that's exactly as it should be.

    Newsarama - Pierce Lydon Jun 26, 2014

    Another month, another great issue of Rick Remender and Daniel Acune's Uncanny Avengers. These two creators are churning out quality issues on a consistent basis and this one is full of the kinds of "go big or go home" moments that we've come to expect. Read Full Review

    All-Comic - Cole Kennedy Jun 26, 2014

    The way this issue was structured, it would appear that this was the conclusion, but based on the surprise ending, the story is just getting started with more action, excitement and epic storytelling to come. Uncanny Avengers #21 creates an inclusive story with multiple simultaneous stories that sometimes create madness, but deliver in the end. Read Full Review

    IGN - Jesse Schedeen Jun 25, 2014

    But again, while this issue is jam-packed with memorable material, it feels a little too packed at times. There are scenes that really could have used a bit more page time, and developments that Remender charges through. This issue also suffers a bit in the visual department compared to others in this arc. Daniel Acuna's art is bold and cinematic, but not quite as detailed or consistent as usual. On the whole, this is a rock solid issue of Uncanny Avengers, but not the best these two creators have crafted. Read Full Review

    Comicosity - Anthony Blackwood Jun 29, 2014

    Remender is unquestionably one of today's best comic writers. He understands the super hero genre and comic book medium like few others and this is another great installment in the grand tale he's been telling for the past year. Even though the conclusion of the story would be more welcome at this point, it seems Remender has a few more twists and turns before he gets to the aftermath. Luckily, Remender has proven himself consistently so readers are definitely still along for the ride. Read Full Review
