    Overall though this series has been a fantastic read and Bendis has certainly set the table for some intriguing possibilities. Read Full Review

    IGN - Jesse Schedeen Nov 17, 2010

    John Romita Jr's art is a bit erratic this month, as it's inked by both Klaus Janson and Tom Palmer. Palmer's lighter, feathery touch is what Romita's pencils need to shine, not the overly thick and heavy inks of Janson. But while this arc displays a few odd qualities in its first issue, it also shows the potential to outclass the first and pay off on some threads still dangling form Bendis' earlier Avengers projects.

    But it's going to take a lot to bring me around on this one. Read Full Review

    Razorfine - Alan Rapp Nov 20, 2010

    If the story moves forward Parker should be a match for the Avengers, and a villain worthy of the team needing all the help they can get. I just hope writer Brian Michael Bendis isn't set on putting all the gems in the hands of this two-time loser. Read Full Review

    I've been enjoying the series and dynamic of the new team. It's nice to see a little bit of downtime as we prepare for the next big dose of craziness. It could be all the hype over Red Hulk being in the issue but I simply wanted more. I have been waiting for a year to see how he will interact in a team setting. With the return of the Infinity Gems...the Avengers are going to need all the help they can get. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Resources - Benjamin Birdie Nov 22, 2010

    As a whole, this was a fairly disappointing start to the new storyline. But then, when you have the Avengers travel to the future to stop a world where Galactus runs around all the time from invading our reality with the help of Killraven, it's kind of hard to top. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Bin - Colin Andersen Nov 18, 2010

    More than almost any book being published today, I want Avengers to succeed, but it continues to disappoint on nearly every level. I love the ideas that Bendis is throwing out there, but he cant seem to make any of them work and he is not showing any real signs of improvement. This is only the first issue of the story and it could obviously improve, but the first seven issues fill me with little hope of that happening. Maybe Ill go get myself an Infinity Gauntlet of my own and wish a new Avengers book into existence. Read Full Review

    Major Spoilers - Matthew Peterson Nov 21, 2010

    I like JR Jrs art this issue, which may or may not be attributed to Tom Palmer on inks, but the wheels are spinning in empty space for the most part. Avengers #7 is disappointing across the board, and even the good parts arent enough to make me happy to spend four bucks on a series of what amount to trailers, leading to 1.5 out of 5 stars overal Read Full Review

    The Weekly Crisis - Ryan Schrodt Nov 20, 2010

    In theory, I love Avengers and the direction that it is going in. You've got a great cast, big threats, a dynamite creative team, and a guest spot for one of my absolute favorite characters in the Marvel catalogue. Unfortunately, somewhere between the theory and the execution, things go astray. The craftsmanship from both Bendis and Romita is subpar considering their histories and the entertainment value suffers as well. This should be a Must Read book every month, but instead I'm scrambling for reasons to justify the purchase. Read Full Review
