    But Why Tho? - Charles Hartford Apr 7, 2021

    Taling it all together America Chavez: Made in the USA #2 delivers an emotionally complicated story about family. It manages to balance the superheroic problems of Americas world with the real-life struggles of people in ours. Read Full Review

    Major Spoilers - Jonathan Cadotte Apr 10, 2021

    America Chavez #2 slows things down a bit from the first issue, but that doesn't diminish its effectiveness as a good place to hop on if you're unfamiliar with the character. Read Full Review

    Comics: The Gathering - Charles Martin Apr 7, 2021

    The second issue of America Chavez completes her re-introduction, tying her new/old family situation onto her existing backstory with skill. And the mystery antagonist targeting her and her family pushes the story toward an intriguing confrontation. A nicely paced script and gorgeous art ensure reader satisfaction. It doesn't quite have that spark that turns an issue or a series into a must-read -- but it keeps the fire stoked and makes sparks in the future seem increasingly likely. Read Full Review

    AIPT - David Brooke Apr 5, 2021

    America Chavez: Made in the USA is making an interesting point about the anger and resentment young people can feel growing up with a family that doesn't seem to understand them. It can be frustrating for a kid, but in hindsight, it's also understandable the family is doing their best with what they're given. Sadly though, the story isn't progressing fast enough and seems to be reiterating the same point over and over rather than exploring America's relationship to any one family member. For that, you're left wanting. Read Full Review

    Another good issue in this series. The artwork and storyline are great, leaves you wanting to read the next issue. We are starting to find out more about America's childhood and the choices she had to make being a super-hero.

    In the present, America's mystery antagonist easily sucks her into a trap that promises plenty of fascinating revelations in future issues. In the past, we see America's development into a superhero and the estrangement from her adoptive family that comes with it. The story threads are nicely balanced against each other, and a consistently engaging insight into America's character is the glue that binds it all into a satisfying read. Some rock-solid art with a high degree of polish helps, too.

    Another good issue. I'd like to see the child put on this woman one day.
    Spider-Man,why were you here?
    The flashback scenes built America up better than any book I read before with her in it, and I was introduced to her through the Ultimates - and even back then her powers were still on the fritz.
    I hear on various newssites that there's going to be these new social justice Cap's for an anniversary special coming soon. Why not just put the spotlight on America?
    She checks all the tokenist inclusion boxes and most importantly, as found in this issue, she has the hero's heart.
    Seeing her interact with her family and the disappointment of her mother, her coming from another world ... As a foster youth, I can empa more

    The art and colours really got better. There is a great use of flashbacks that show us how America became a hero and drifted away of her familly. The fights could be a little bit longer, they don't last more than 2 pannels in this comic.

    I really liked the family drama for the most part. That's not something I'm usually so on board with, so it's a testament to the writing. However, I'm not sure I want to return to the Utopian Parallel? Every time we do revisit that part of America's origins, it gets a little turbulent, so to speak.
