    Unleash The Fanboy - John McCubbin Sep 18, 2014

    Uncanny Avengers #24 does a wonderful job of setting up Axis, with the addition of Magneto also giving us a taste of how vast this event will be. Highly recommended. Read Full Review

    Weekly Comic Book Review - Danny Wall Sep 21, 2014

    The Bottom Line: As a segue into a new conflict with the Red Skull, or in other words a “march to AXIS,” this issue does its job nicely, and by focusing on some key characters it helps to highlight major themes that will be going forward. Magneto is an interesting figure to bring into play, and already he shows he can play off of any of our major players. Sadly, the flipside to this means that the team again proves to be more insular than “unity,” nor is there much opportunity to show the team has a Justice League-style scope. Also, the art is not my preferred style and does not seem a good match for an action series like this. Read Full Review

    We The Nerdy - Justin Micallef Sep 17, 2014

    Marvel has solicited issue #25 as the last issue of Uncanny Avengers, and I am desperately hoping the book has it's own, proper sendoff, and not bogged down by the necessity to read other books connected to the Axis event to get the full picture. All in all, a good piece to what seems to be shaping up to be an even greater complete project. Read Full Review

    IGN - Jesse Schedeen Sep 17, 2014

    Unfortunately, not all aspects of this issue are as strong. In general, the build-up towards AXIS comes across as rushed. This issue shifts into a confrontation with Red Skull and the S-Men fairly abruptly. Making matters worse is that the series suddenly crosses paths with Cullen Bunn's Magneto comic, offering little explanation for why Magneto is suddenly a player in the story. It definitely seems as though Uncanny could have used another issue or two to build towards AXIS more elegantly. Not that the revelations in this issue aren't interesting. But after focusing on the Apocalypse Twins and Kang for so long, the series has made a hard 180 in the last two months. Read Full Review

    Graphic Policy - Troy Powell Sep 22, 2014

    I am quite hit or miss when it come to Salvador Larocca‘s art, mainly for the reason that a lot of his female characters seem so cookie cutter. That's just another minor gripe though. Read Full Review

    It's not perfect, but it's got more than enough great moments to warrant a buy. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Herald - Travis Bass Sep 21, 2014

    Uncanny Avengers has been a very good title since its inception as the launch title of Marvel Now! Rick Remender does a good job grounding this story after the cosmic level things that happened last arc, but it does stumble a bit. There's good character work, and things look like they are about to get very bad for these characters very soon. Unfortunately the art drags this issue down a bit, but this is still a fine issue, and can even be used as a jumping on point for this series. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Resources - Kelly Thompson Sep 19, 2014

    Regardless of how you felt about Remender's previous "Avenge the Earth" arc, it at least had passion and conviction behind it. This story, combined with a flawed and inconsistent visual execution, is off to a rocky start that feels like it's just spinning its wheels. Read Full Review

    Newsarama - Pierce Lydon Sep 18, 2014

    Uncanny Avengers has been in hangover mode since the fallout of their battle with Kang. Rick Remender hasn't been able to capture the excitement that was so prevalent and gives us a talky set-up issue that's designed to recenter the focus on Havok, Rogue and Scarlet Witch. Read Full Review
