    America's series has done well to add depth to her in addition to her appearances in team books. We're getting even more to her as a character and seeing a more vulnerable side. This creative team has done well to make America Chavez an even more well-rounded character and hero. Read Full Review

    Over the past eleven issues [America] has very much cemented its place as part of one of the most underrated titles in Marvel's line-up right now. Read Full Review

    Comics: The Gathering - Charles Martin Jan 17, 2018

    America's weird, wild ride as the star of her own solo bends towards its conclusion. While some concepts worth exploring have filtered down into this final arc, the odds of cementing them into a memorable legacy seem slim. This chapter in America's story is unlikely to be the most beloved, but we can still hope it's not the last. Read Full Review

    So, right away we start with Gabby's Self-Insert Mary Sue character (X'andria) being totally BFF with America -- and somehow it devolves into Franklin's quote of trading liberties for safety and the evils of surveillance, white people being racists and Sotomayor U becoming a sanctuary campus.

    Little sidenote here -- you have to point out Prodigy's hypocrisy -- no way around it: He objects there was a surveillance system put in place, but he also had a surveillance system he installed himself prior to this

    America goes on break from the U, wishes really hard and manages to make a portal to her Abuela. The scene is not that bad actually, you know, connecting to a long-lost family member and such, and then looking for your roots together, and even growing as a person.

    Anyways, now they're in planet Fuertona... other Starlings are here? (Wait, did they ever call America a starling before this?) Anyways, now we got sassy redhead lesbian fuertona fighting flying chupacabras that are attacking Planet Fuertona -- and due to plot coincidence, America gets slightly depowered cuz the chupacabras function like metaphorical chupacabras, sucking and draining the energy of those that fight them -- oh yeah, and America's grandma gets kidnapped by the chupacabras.

    And this is the problem with America, she can be a very unlikable character under Gabby Rivera, and all the goodwill garnered in the scenes with her grandma get then upended with America's hotheadedness by willing to make a choice that could hurt all the other Fuertonas/Starlings/Whatevers just to rescue her grandma -- Maybe I'd be more willing to give America a pass if she wasn't consistently unsympathetic.

    A bad comic, with good art, built upon good ideas, but the script was wanting. Also a shame the design for the redhead fuertona (which is great) is wasted in this book.
