    Avengers fans need to read this issue. It's a love letter to the Avengers, but also to the wonderfully eclectic group of heroes too. Mark Waid's accomplished a rare feat: he's added a story to the pantheon of fantastic Avengers lore we'll be reading for years. Read Full Review

    Newsarama - Justin Partridge Mar 1, 2017

    Avengers #5 is all killer, no filler, and that was precisely what the A-list title needed. Mark Waid and his characters have a problem to solve, and come hell or high water, they are going to solve it. This narrative focus gives his script a pointed energy and real sense of fun as he barrels from one cliffhanger to the next. Harnessing that energy are Mike Del Mundo and Marco D’Alfonso who compound that fun then project it into impressive visual storytelling. If you like your plots big and your artwork super weird, then Avengers #5 is the book for you. Read Full Review

There's a real joy in seeing this new team join forces with the iconic Avengers of yesteryear, and Waid's humorous dialogue makes particularly strong use of the original Avengers. Read Full Review
