    Razorfine - Alan Rapp Mar 1, 2011

    All that plus our heroes finally come face-to-face with the villain amassing the Infinity Gems for himself – the Hood (who's gotten his grubby hands on yet another gem). Must-read. Read Full Review

    Overall, a fun issue full of those old timey team up feelings. We also have a set up for a big throwdown between some super-powerful characters, so we should be seeing some serious action in the next couple months. Read Full Review

    There's still time to turn this story around - and the "Next issue" cover looks interesting - but I still stand by my original "cosmic MacGuffins stink" platform. Read Full Review

    IGN - Feb 23, 2011

    Sadly, issue #10 is the most disappointing chapter of the series from a visual standpoint. John Romita Jr.'s pencils are all over the map in terms of quality. His scenes of Namor, Red Hulk, and Thor navigating the ocean depths are some of the best of the series. Other times, his character renderings are so haphazard that it becomes difficult to distinguish one Avenger from another. The inking and coloring aren't terribly consistent either. The battle at the ruins of the Xavier Institute is derailed by unnecessarily heavy inking and flat coloring. Issue #9 proved the series can offer better in both art and story structure, and I hope it will again before this arc wraps up. Read Full Review

    The Weekly Crisis - Ryan Schrodt Mar 3, 2011

    This is much closer to the type of comic that I want Avengers to be, but still a far cry from the type of book that the combination of Bendis and Romita Jr. are capable of producing. This story has the making of being the biggest nonevent Avengers story of the last few years, but instead we get a brilliant creative juggernaut running at halfspeed. Lesser Bendis and Romita is still better than most, but I want this to be so much better than it is! Read Full Review

    Weekly Comic Book Review - Alex Evans Feb 24, 2011

    A bit of a stumble in what has thus far been a really good arc. While it succeeds in the little things, the major components have got some issues. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Resources - Greg McElhatton Feb 23, 2011

    "Avengers" is normally a bit more fun than this, but everyone involved already seems tired of the current story. That's not a good sign. Neither is the fact that a reprint of the recent "Heroes for Hire" #1 in the back is far more interesting than the main feature. "Avengers" needs some more energy, and fast. Read Full Review
