    The story threatens to spin out of control - time paradoxes are tricky rascals - but Waid keeps those plates spinning carefully in the air, adding fresh twists along the way. Throw in a few Easter eggs and you have a mighty entertaining story brewing. Read Full Review

    Superior Spider-Talk - Russ McDonald Dec 10, 2016

    The Avengers #2 is a beautifully rendered romp that blends keen character work, big-idea bombast, and old-school charm. It builds off the momentum of the first issue and leaves audiences ready for the next. Read Full Review

    Heroes Direct - Adam Fitch Dec 10, 2016

    Overall, this issue is a tad messy when it comes to the explanations of time travel and works best when it doesn't try to spell things out to the reader. Hercules being a hero is always cool and seeing the Avengers assemble just in time to take on many versions of Kang was pretty damn exciting. Read Full Review

    AiPT! - David Brooke Dec 7, 2016

    A gorgeous book, Avengers plays with time travel well, with big choices to make and high stakes to boot. Vision, Wasp, Hercules, and Spider-Man all get to shine too. What's not to love? Read Full Review

    Newsarama - Pierce Lydon Dec 7, 2016

    Avengers is going big with its story while still maintaining the heart of Marvel Comics: the humanity of its characters. There’s a lot of fun to be had with something that feels this larger than life and is still told without changing what makes these characters great. Marvel would be wise to pay attention to what’s happening with this book the next time they plan a big event. You can have big, weird stories that take some effort to fully grasp if the characters within them are written well. Avengers is one of the better books in this post-Civil War II iteration of the Marvel U because it doesn’t force you to accept anything about the characters themselves that don’t hold true elsewhere, it only asks you to come along for a ride. That’s the whimsy that corporate comics are, sadly, usually missing. Read Full Review

    IGN - Jesse Schedeen Dec 8, 2016

    The Avengers themselves are the weak link in this latest incarnation of the series. Not only is the cast small, their personalities don't make for a particularly compelling mix. Read Full Review

    Newsarama - Jon Arvedon Dec 12, 2016

    Avengers #1 was a major step forward from the previous All-New All-Different Avengers title. Unfortunately, Avengers #2 feels more like two steps back compared to its predecessor. Read Full Review

    Comic Crusaders - Dusty Good Dec 12, 2016

    At the end of the day this book feels like it's still trying to find its feet and its voice all at once. I'm not sure if fans will stick around long enough to find out if either happens. Read Full Review
