    SciFiPulse - Patrick Hayes Feb 18, 2018

    The focus returns to the heroes with Rogue on the offense. The story gives every character a moment and the visuals continue to give this tale an epic look. This is what a team book should be like in comics. Read Full Review

    AVENGERS #680 gives readers more hints as to how the Grandmaster's game shall be played. The artwork is stellar, and there are a few scenes that will make Marvel fans widen their eyes quite a bit. Read Full Review

    The story follows a battle royal between two alien super-teams and the Avengers, and it continues to build nicely. So against the odds - I like it! Read Full Review

    The action was exciting and the story is still building up its momentum. That's not an easy thing to maintain for a weekly series, but it's working so far. Read Full Review

    Comicosity - Doug Zawisza Feb 16, 2018

    All in all, this is a pretty packed issue, but its also the least satisfying of No Surrender to this point. Its not bad, mind you, its just murky. And dark. Did I mention this is a dark issue? Read Full Review

    AiPT! - Russ Dobler Feb 14, 2018

    It's more of the same, which is both good and bad. This issue does little to address the story's main mystery, though, so Rogue's ass-kicking will have to keep you satisfied and curious enough to come back next week. Read Full Review

    DisKingdom.com - Roger Palmer Feb 14, 2018

    This story arc is interesting but the focus on the less known heroes is dragging it down, bringing in the original Wasp seemed a little anticlimax and we have the exact same cliffhanger as last week, which hopefully brings a huge name onto the field to make this story move up a gear.

    "Avengers: No Surrender" continues to be a throwback to the epic, cosmic, do-or-die superhero fare that so many Avengers fans fell in love with in past eras. Read Full Review

    You Don't Read Comics - Jason Dincauze Feb 14, 2018

    Waid, Ewing and Zub are all strong writers who know how to handle story, so its hard not to conclude that something is not working with their collaboration. Or perhaps thats too harsh, and they are just biding time before the real fireworks start. They better get to it, however, as the audience may not be willing to stick around if issues continue to feel as thin as this one. Readers need more than just a short fight to get them coming back, and this story has a long way to go before its finished. Read Full Review

    Really enjoying this event, more of the same but I'm liking it a lot, kinda intrigued to see if Jarvis and Voyager are somewhat connected kinda feel they are by the way the narrative is being displayed.

    Weekly schedule really helps this book. This way it's much easier to pull the plot twists, and have the story moving at a fast pace without losing any other details. As others have already mentioned, it's pretty much the same thing every issue, but there's a lot happening in the background and that's what makes it work.

    The weekly format is what's best for this kinda story that covers fewer things based on the massive roster of players but still advances the narrative. It would have been a drag as a monthly. Jacinto is doing well.

    This was a solid book with some pretty good art. I thought it was well written and the end is just the beginning.

    After the last issue revealed so much for the No Surrender story this issue may seem like a bit of a let down. What we lack in story and reveals we get in action. The Avengers are torn on if they should take the fight to the opposing villains or regroup to better defend. Meanwhile Beast reunites with Wonder Man to try and help Jarvis only to find what they thought was the problem may not be. Again the art is top notch through most of the issue. There is a 'post credit' Logan scene that actually seems to tell us less than previous ones. At least this time he didn't seem to just miss someone. That could be because like many other Avengers he was frozen due to the game so never made it to the target. Overall the chapter is necessary, but not m more

    A better issue. This time with the voice of Rogue. We don't see both players & that left some place for the fallout of the 678.
    I find the part with Simon going to see Beast nice. Even if I don't follow the writer with the radiation sickness who isn't one.
    I have a hard time to read some part of the story ... Like who was the shade hurt after the "Damn asgardian witch" ... And who is the asgardian witch by the way ?

    Cover - I really like the cover even if that didn't give too much of the story except a little Spoiler. 1.5/2
    Writing - I think I make peace with the story. Or this part was better. 2.5/3
    Arts - There is some wonderfull panel & other not so much. And to much empty background. 2.5/3
    Feelings - more

    Solid middle entry in this event. I gave an extra .5 to this issue for the spotlight we got on Rogue. Avengers No Surrender is best described as consistent. Consistent art and consistent story and the writers are doing a solid job of cleaning up the Avengers books and setting up a new status quo. We are finally starting to see some real pushback from the heroes and this book felt more like a clash of good and evil than previous entries in this story. I can't help but contrast this event to Dark Night Metal but honestly I prefer No surrender simply because it is not as dragged out and each issue doesn't follow the same basic plot like Metal.

    If you are an Avengers or Marvel fan then jump into this event and enjoy.

    Rogue, enraged by losing Johnny Storm, grabs the POV football and beats a bloody vengeance story into the Black Order's faces. That part's great, but the rest of this issue's content is less moving. The writers push the "Oh no, Johnny's gone!" reactions well over the line into filler territory. Wonder Man's contribution to the Jarvis mystery is set up beautifully and then fizzles. The Hulk foreshadowing is in a holding pattern. The visuals are not wowing me, either. They seem rushed. Poses look generic, settings are nonexistent, and in several panels, the artist gets defeated by the challenge of portraying Rogue as a human person with a skull-shaped-skull out of which hair comes.
