Warbringer has made good on his name, and the All-New Avengers stand poised to yank defeat from the jaws of victory unless they can put their differences aside--and in the case of Ms. Marvel and Nova, that doesn't seem very likely!

    Comicosity - Allen Thomas Jan 13, 2016

    I knew that getting to the final chapter of the first arc for All-New All-Different Avengers would be the deciding factor in determining the impact of this series. I got everything that I expected with fighting, but also the budding relationships between each of the characters. This issue was a great way to bring in the ANAD wave for the Avengers, but also in establishing the utility of some of Marvels fresh faces. I am pumped for this series moving forward, and I am definitely happy to be excited about reading a new Avengers title. Read Full Review

    The other post-Secret Wars Avengers comics (Uncanny, New) haven't impressed me much. This is the best of the bunch by far. Read Full Review

    Superior Spider-Talk - Adam Chapman Jan 22, 2016

    With each issue All-New All-Different Avengers has become more enjoyable and entertaining. There's a true sense of fun and excitement present in the book that spews forth from the writing and artwork. Read Full Review

    As theAvengers book, this will need more to keep me interested. The issue 0 from New Comic Book Day was exactly what I expected from this series, the sense of fun and danger, but ALL NEW ALL DIFFERENT AVENGERS has not lived up to its potential… yet. Read Full Review

    IGN - Jesse Schedeen Jan 14, 2016

    Initially this series seemed like one of the safest bets of the All-New, All-Different Marvel lineup, but even after three issues it feels like there's something important missing. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Resources - Greg McElhatton Jan 15, 2016

    "All-New, All-Different Avengers" #3 checks in as average, but it should really be much stronger. The pedigree of this creative team promises much more, and the Avengers are the cornerstone of the company's comics more than ever thanks to the two massively successful films. Maybe future issues will have a little more spring in their step now that the opening story arc has completed, but -- for the moment -- this is a book in need of more excitement. Read Full Review

    Doom Rocket - Jarrod Jones Jan 18, 2016

    The team Marvel has thoughtfully put together is a vibrant, exciting display of how diverse the Marvel U has always been, and it's readily apparent that this a book that's to be treated with the same reverence as Grant Morrison and Howard Porter's JLA was nearly twenty years ago. (What? You couldn't tell by Alex Ross' cheeky cover to issue #1?) Thing is, the manner in which Waid has set up this book, it's going to take that much longer to get everyone on the same page. Which is to say, it's gonna be a minute before All-New, All-Different Avengers becomes the team Marvel deserves. Good thing we know Waid's an expert on the long game. Read Full Review

    Nerdophiles - Jackson Adams Jan 18, 2016

    It's hard to grasp exactly what Waid is going for and it leaves these solid, mostly compelling characters feeling more like props than heroes and doesn't offer a compelling hook to hitch a book to. Read Full Review

    Weekly Comic Book Review - Danny Wall Jan 18, 2016

    The Avengers have re-formed, after just three issues! There's something about a villain and something about another villain, and since the kids have proved themselves, the adults will let them play. There's some elements of classic Avenger-ing, such as assembling some fan-fave heroes and a foe no single hero can withstand (except one did, before), but there's more to an Avengers book than that, and while some ground work might be laid for it, there would have to be a lot more that resonates on a gut level to make this book more than a checklist of superheroey tropes.
