    A great start to a new era and something that has been a long time coming since the start of Champions. Read Full Review

    A strong team book, but a tad repetitive with the character drama. Read Full Review

    Monkeys Fighting Robots - Brandon J. Griffin Oct 6, 2017

    This may not feel exactly like the Avengers of old, but the enjoyment does. This certainly feels more like a classic Avengers title than the most recent handful of various Avengers titles. Read Full Review

    Newsarama - Justin Partridge Oct 4, 2017

    Avengers #672 is what happens when superheroes stop being polite and start getting real. Fingers crossed they can put aside their differences and have a day unlike any other once again by standing together and facing down whatever else Mark Waid and company plan to throw at them next.

    Superior Spider-Talk - Russ McDonald Oct 12, 2017

    The actual story of The Avengers #672 is kind of generic and doesn't do much to establish how "Legacy" will differ substantively from what came before it. Waid's characterization is sharp as ever, though, so it's not a total bummer that some things have stayed the same. Read Full Review

    IGN - Jesse Schedeen Oct 5, 2017

    It's the character dynamics that make this issue worthwhile. Seeing Hercules and Amadeus Cho reunited is practically worth the price of admission all on its own. Read Full Review

    We The Nerdy - Luke Miller Oct 5, 2017

    So nothing groundbreaking plot-wise, but serviceable enough. The characters seem well-written, even if I'm not particularly interested in them. The art is fine, but again, nothing groundbreaking. I guess that's just how the book feels to me: It's fine. It's a standard, slightly above-average book. Read it if you're particularly interested in the characters or the teams. If you're not, I'd definitely say give this book a pass. Read Full Review

    Bleeding Cool - Joshua Davison Oct 10, 2017

    #672 isnt a bad book, but I cant quite recommend it either, especially since you would need to follow Champions as well to get the full story (something which seems like a baffling move in what is supposed to be a new era of both books). Give this one a pass. Read Full Review

    One of the things that I love that Mark Waid does is relationships between characters. If you read All New All Different Avengers with Spider-Man (Miles), Nova (Sam), and Ms Marvel (Kamala) along with their solo series there was a building of friendship there. This came into play when they formed the Champions after disagreeing with the veteran heroes in the team. Bringing them together he is able to play with those divides and close friendships again. The two teams are forced to work together in order to stop a rogue meteor from crashing into the Earth. Kamala puts aside her anger at Sam taking charge of both teams for the greater good until after the danger has passed. Something that grows her position as leader of the Champions, seeing that the need meant not getting into a fight right then. Amadeus and Hercules are about displaying strength and power. Something I loved about them in their series. It is Waid's attention to characters that I love in his team book writing. The art I liked in this book more than the art within Steve Rogers: Captain America. It fit far better for me. The reintroduction of the Counter-Earth and the High Evolutionary seemed more exciting than the inclusion in the Uncanny Avengers series that was short lived before the current Unity Squad. I had not intended on picking up the issue and after I did I was pleasantly surprised. There is a classic Avengers feel to this story that I hope plays out well.

    This issue is really awesome I have not been a fan of the Mark Waid run so far. The Kang arc was okay but the Mike Del Mundo art really hurt it for me with the exception of the Thor one-shot Secret Empire tie in I liked that one and I consider the issue before this current one to be god-awful. But this issue is exactly how a superhero comics should be written it was fantastic and the art by Jesus Saiz was nothing short of incredible.

    Great work by Waid bringing the old school feel with the new in this story. Fantastic art by Saiz. I'm on board.

    A crossover clash that's been building for a year, Avengers vs Champions delivers on all the interpersonal drama without sacrificing any action. The only negative is del Mundo's absence.

    Well I was afraid of a silly battle between team. But I find the story pretty good. They use the Counter Earth once More & I love that. We follow both team & for new they try to work together. That's a pretty good story in my opinion. The art is not my cup of tea but that may have been way worse. I also appreciate the recap about the avengers, even if a little surprise they don't place Voyager in it (For now). I wait for the Champion with some hope, and I thanks Mark Waid for that !

    I have a lot of back issue Avengers issues from he first volume, but I have not read any new Avengers comics in my life. I figured with the new Marvel legacy it would be a good time to jump in since I am also reading Champions at this time. For starters, I was really impressed with the art. Saiz killed it on Captain America: Steve Rogers and his beautiful art is now in this book. The story itself did not explain much to what was going on. but that is fine because it is kind of making it a mystery at this point. The scene of them trying to stop the meteor was really cool. (except it was kind of lame to even imagine that Spider-webs no matter how strong they may be would stop a meteor) Overall, I really enjoyed this issue, it was good starting point to start reading and leaves me wanting to know more.

    I haven't followed any of Waid's Avengers since the first 0 issue. I did read the first few issues of Champions and enjoyed them fine. This issue here I got suckered into due to renumbering (what can I say, I like big numbers better than small numbers and will enjoy the 3-6 months that Marvel reverts to big numbers). That said, this issue works well as a reintroduction to everyone and does a great job of setting the two teams against each other subtly without the unnecessary fisticuffs. Thought the art was top notch too. Good mix of old school with new school facial expressions, layout and color. $24 seems like a lot for the whole story so I'll probably wait my six months until its up on MCU to read the rest, but once it is up, I'll read the heck out of it.

    This was okay. It settled into a fairly standard plot, but I generally liked the interactions between the characters. Jesus Saiz is pretty fine on pencils. Oh, and I almost skipped the little 3-page Avengers origin synopsis at the back, but I read it and found it charming. So, there you go...solid, but I'm sure better lay ahead

    Really wanted to like this one. Old marvel fan, but don't read the current comics. Hulk 2.0/new characters not my cup of tea.
