Ethan Avery is Damage, the monstrous brute with unlimited strength for an hour. That's the (semi) good news. The bad...? Ethan's on the run from the army that transformed him. Mr. Leash's metahuman tactical squad is hot on Avery's trail-what could go wrong when a bunch of bloodthirsty super-soldiers take on a rampaging monstrosity called Damage? PLUS: What is Colonel Jonas' gut-wrenching reason for running the top-secret superhuman chop shop? Secrets are revealed in part one of the new story "Scuttled."

    You came for the action in Damage #7, but you stayed for the character development for Colonel Jonas. As much as you want to see of Ethan and Damage, there is no denying that Jonas is a character of interest when there was so much until now that was shrouded in mystery. We now move forward with a stronger understanding of what drives her actions and why getting Damage back is so important for what she believes in. Read Full Review

    By getting Damage away from the Hunters, he can continue searching for the answers he believes lie at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier. Learning the secret that drives Jonas makes her a more complete character and not just a military stereotype trying to get back government property. Venditti is mapping not only a larger storyline for Damage, he's also adding layers to characters who continue to play a major role in helping our hero grow. Read Full Review

    With no DC cameos to get in his way, Ethan Avery has a chance in the spotlight in DAMAGE #7. Yet he didn't shine in this issue. Unfortunately, the plot is beginning to feel repetitive. However, the artwork captures the action-packed moments just as well as the somber ones. Read Full Review

    Though nothing amazing to write home about, a difference in focus and decision to downplay the overall praise of the eponymous character helps "Damage" #7 to do better than its predecessors. Read Full Review

    Damage has potential, but it hasn't quite reached it yet. DC tends to give new books a decent shot at finding an audience. Damage seems like it's going to need a longer leash than some of the other New Age of Heroes books. Read Full Review

    The great irony of Damage #7 is the same as the rest of the series " writer Robert Venditti seems more interested in everything surrounding Ethan Avery than he does in the main character himself. Read Full Review

    In issue #7, Damage finally adds a layer of depth and humanity to its story, which the series has desperately needed for several issues. Still, even with that helpful note, the book still struggles to be anything more than a Red Bull-fueled romp through the DC character library. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Branden Murray Jul 18, 2018

    This issue is definitely my jumping off point for this series. This book is firmly entrenched in its villain of the month battle formula, as the story remains in the background, moving at a snails pace each issue. Worse than just being a beat em up month in and month out, the story beats and twists are telegraphed from page one here, ruining any fun or mystery setup in previous issues. Read Full Review
