    IGN - Joshua Yehl Nov 7, 2012

    Speaking of Lord Gouzar, despite being a brand new baddie, the ever-entertaining dialogue of Bendis gives him a harsh personality and combat skill to match. The Avengers have a time adjusting to the unique attributes of the micro universe while trying to battle this new foe, lending an air of desperation to the proceedings. Janet van Dyne also reveals how she survived Secret Invasion with a classic "you didn't see what you thought you saw" explanation. The story cuts off on an awkward beat, yet I am still eager to see how Bendis finishes what has been a grand orchestration of superhero team action. Read Full Review

    Comicosity - Aaron Long Nov 9, 2012

    Avengers #33 is a fun comic in the middle of an arc rounding it's way in to what could be an extremely interesting finish for Bendis. Avengers fans will find a lot to love in this book, and I am eagerly anticipating reading the next issue. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Resources - Doug Zawisza Nov 9, 2012

    The Avengers should be loud and fun, with subtle character moments, which is exactly what Bendis gives us, although it moves so briskly it feels like half a story. "Avengers" #33 (and all of the "End Times" issues) are nice rewards for readers who have stuck by Bendis throughout his run or simply decided it was time to check in with Earth's Mightiest Heroes once again.

    Marvel Disassembled - Kyle Mc Nov 11, 2012

    In the micro-verse Lord Gouzar has made sure that the Avengers know who he defeats Thor, Cap, Iron Man, Giant-Man and Janet. With the explanation as to what exactly happened to Janet during the Secret Invasion it explains as to why she hasnt managed to escape all this time is actually the weakest part of the whole issue because the story itself isnt anything to be praised or remembered.

    That being said, I am interested in how this story is unfolding. This particular issue is just a bit weaker than the other two in the story because there wasn't much plot progression. Hopefully things start to pick up in the next issue. Read Full Review

    Comic Vine - Gregg Katzman Nov 7, 2012

    While THE AVENGERS definitely isn't a bad book, it's by no means a great one either. For me, it falls somewhere in the middle. Bendis's ability to craft natural flowing and light hearted conversations is alluring and Janet's return is a solid hook, but the antagonist and his agenda isn't anything special... and that happens to be soaking up a good deal of the panel time. Hopefully the story with Lord Gouzar takes an unexpected turn or wraps up quickly. Read Full Review

    Weekly Comic Book Review - paladinking Nov 9, 2012

    A perfectly adequate Avengers comic book that hits all the right buttons, but it never really rises above “adequate,” nor does it really seem to attempt to. Read Full Review
