    From the two artists on this book, Mike Mayhew and Brandon Peterson, this last story is certainly a good looking one. Every page and every panel is gorgeous. You really couldn't ask for a better duo to tell this story for this final arc. It's really everything you should expect from an Avengers comic. Read Full Review

    In short, this issue is everything you would want from an Avengers comic. As much as I'm looking forward to Bendis and Stuart Immonen on All-New X-Men, his absence from the Avengers will, most certainly, be felt by me. Aside from the story being a tad predictable, it's still a fun read, done in classic Avengers fashion. Read Full Review

    It's the return of a missing character! There may be some that frown upon this return but we all had to know it was coming. It's a matter of simply accepting this and finding out what this is going to mean for the characters affected by their absence. There definitely will be repercussions to be seen. If anyone can pull off this return, it's Bendis. He tells a serious story with plenty of his humor sprinkled in. There are some odd moments but the mystery and suspense of the (possible) return of a character is enticing. I had no idea this issue was going in this direction and am pleased to not have been spoiled. It's great to see a Marvel title continuing despite all the hubbub of Marvel NOW! There is a story to be told here and it's great to see it being played out before the series is relaunched. Read Full Review

    The moment of reunification of the team with the supposedly deceased character had me smiling from ear-to-ear. Bendis makes it memorable by making it a purely human response based on all that has come before. While this issue does not rock the house in terms of plot, and in fact seems counter-intuitive to ending an extended run, seeing the character alive brings its own emotional response that longtime readers will surely react to. Whether that reaction is resurrection rage or not is entirely up to you. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Resources - Doug Zawisza Oct 29, 2012

    The "End Times" story provides "Avengers" readers with one last tour through Brian Michael Bendis' version of Earth's Mightiest Heroes and gives the writer a chance to tuck in or trim off the loose ends of his marathon run. As such, fan favorite characters abound and developments occur all over the place, but in this issue those things are on a smaller (pun intended) scale and are therefore much more personal. As a fan of the late-1970s through early 1990s Avengers, I'm finding a lot of enjoyment in this series and this issue in particular. Read Full Review

    Lastly, I think this whole Wonder Man thing is really funny. Him asking for forgiveness is such a minor thing at the moment, but maybe it'll have a bigger payoff later. He's like that friend who pissed you off but then wants to come back and play the next day. When you're still mad at them, they're just like, "Oh, okay. I'll just sit here in the corner and watch today I guess." I know he tried to kill the team and everything, but I do feel bad for Simon and I hope he either A) Gets forgiven in some small way soon or B) Turns on them in a major way. Both scenarios would work for me, as long as it's done right. Read Full Review

    Major Spoilers - Matthew Peterson Oct 25, 2012

    Still, I'm mostly pleased with this story, as it returns the one founding Avenger with style and a normal sense of humor to the fold, and looks pretty good overall. Avengers #32 sticks the landing, even as it undoes another of Bendis' big changes to the Avengers status quo in preparation for a new creative team in this sandbox. Read Full Review
