    Avengers No Surrender Part 9, the fun is just beginning. We now know Voyager was never an Avenger. But who is she? What's her real purpose? This far into the story and we haven't even scratched the surface. This is what superhero stories should read like. Just when you think you know it all, you realize you didn't even know the questions. Amazing comic book storytelling! Read Full Review

    Comicosity - Doug Zawisza Mar 7, 2018

    A colleague in comic book commentary noted that No Surrender is a video game in comic form. Hes not wrong, but games inspire comics and comics inspire games. Nothing in this day and age is crafted in a vacuum, especially with brand recognition like the Avengers. And thats the beauty of this single-title-contained event. Its not limited to one source of inspiration any more than the Avengers are limited by one defined roster. This is a comic story that lends itself to be more, and if comics could launch merchandise today (Original Secret Wars anyone?) this No Surrender would be powering out wave three or four right about now.

    Avengers 683 is without doubt the best issue in the series and has been one of the most enjoyable comics I read for ages. Read Full Review

    Graphic Policy - Brett Mar 7, 2018

    That reveal too throws into questions some of the statements from previous issues. Who's the mysterious game piece that's been off the board? Is it the Hulk who know is returning? Or, is it the twist at this issue's end? We'll find out soon (yay weekly!) but this series has been a fantastic ride that has kept readers on their toes and is constantly playing with expectations. This is a perfect example of what events should strive to be. Read Full Review

    Geeked Out Nation - Jideobi Odunze Mar 8, 2018

    Expect the unexpected. I think that sums up No Surrender in a nutshell so far. There's something to love about an Avengers story where you just can't predict how this will end. Avengers #683 was full of shock, yet at the same time it was filled with the heart that reminds us that this is a superhero story at the core. Read Full Review

    AVENGERS #683 focuses on the subplot of Beast, Wasp, and Jarvis. Jarvis is resuscitated only to reveal an apparent truth about Voyager. While the pacing is a bit off, the characterization and artwork of AVENGERS #683 are spectacular. Read Full Review

    SciFiPulse - Patrick Hayes Mar 23, 2018

    A final attempt is made to save Jarvis and a revelation shocks the heroes. The story continues in fine format, but the artist and coloring changes stumble occasionally. This is very readable, just not at the same caliber as previous issues. Read Full Review

    A bit of a letdown after the previous two issues, but acknowledging the importance of Jarvis and seeing Beast back in heroic action is nice. Read Full Review

    The Fandom Post - Alex Henning Mar 13, 2018

    I wouldn't say it's a bad issue, as the art is decent and the dialogue is still so on point, but it does have a crisis of focus/voice. Read Full Review

    ComicBook.com - Jamie Lovett Mar 7, 2018

    The visuals don't quite do the concept justice, but it's a fun, almost self-contained adventure that also manages to push forward some of the central mysteries of the larger "No Surrender" story. Read Full Review

    Avengers: No Surrender thrives even though classic team members like Hank Pym, Steve Rogers, Tony Stark, Thor Odinson, Bruce Banner, Natasha Romanoff, and Peter Parker are not involved in the series. Instead, classic X-Men like Rogue and Sunspot and B-Listers like Falcon and Living Lightning take more prominent roles within the Avengers. It’s amazing what the trio of writers have been doing without most of the core Avengers. Fantastic story

    We begin with Lightening getting his team caught up and trying to figure out how to save some of the other teams. We again learn that when one hero dies or is frozen, another one is unfrozen somewhere else.

    Then we jump to the hospital where the 5th pyramid thingy shows up. Lucky us, in the hospital with Jarvis! It looks like purple ghosts are all over the place.

    So Nadia and Beast decide to split up and help Jarvis while also helping the people in the hospital. Nadia tries to sacrifice herself BUT it won't let her touch the pyramid thingy. So, she shrinks down with Beast, who was already inside Jarvis to inject that virus and get it out of him.

    While inside Jarvis, we see his mind and all interactions with more

    Grand issue the reveal was coming I could see that but it left it on quite the thriller and in a good way. Looking forward to the next issue (can't complain about that really)

    Beast and Nadia are two characters that I never thought about working together, but this issue had a dynamic that I really enjoyed. The issue focuses mainly on Beast and the new Wasp as they try to save Jarvis from the parasite that they found in the previous issue Fantastic Voyage style. They use Pym Particles to shrink down and infect it from within Jarvis. It is a cool moment that shines on characters that have not yet had much to do within No Surrender. Again the series moves along creating questions just as it answers other. There is a good give and take the writers are doing to not make the tale frustrating. The art still looks good. The style does not clash with previous issues. This is a fun series worth reading for sure.

    This was probably one of, if not the best issues so far in my opinion. I liked the twist with Voyager and the story of who would grab the Pyramoid was entertaining. The art in this book was pretty good as well. Very entertaining stuff right before we get into the Hulk return.

    Slower issue (not a single page of the main battle), though with lots of things happening. We get some very interesting revelations about Voyager, and the new Wasp had her best moment so far. One of the best issue of this story so far.

    Great series. Continues to deliver on story and art. Feels classic with modern beats.

    I have to say, I'm as event fatigued as the next guy but.. this event has felt different from the start. at least for me - it's good! not over the top with stupid stuff like Metal and Doomsday Clock. It even makes me want to learn more about this "new" (to me) Wasp :)

    With refreshing focus, the story drills down onto a tight vignette of Beast and Wasp simultaneously saving Jarvis and dealing with the final Pyramoid. There's also a Big Reveal on the Voyager front that gets some excellent foreshadowing earlier in the book. I really like the visuals, though the art gets a big advantage from the script's limited number of settings. The strategic writing work - plotting and pacing and those Voyager hints - is superb, but the actual dialogue is a bit trite. The dangers, yet again, of writing by committee. No Surrender looks to be speeding up, which is very welcome.

    This issue focuses more on The Beast, Nadia Pym and Jarvis. At first i thought there was no need of the writers to focus so much on Jarvis as i wanted the main story to progress, but now i understood why they focused so much on him. The art by Paco Medina and the colours by Juan Vlasco isnt as good as the previous artists and colourists, but they werent that bad. The twist at the end was also very good.

    The story is still nice, but this issue failed in my opinion. It definitely adds to the overall story and thickens the plot, but it's just poor; this is mainly because the dialogues/monologues come across as annoying, simply because they tell what we can already see, making it read like a children's book.
    The plot twist had me fucked up in a good way though. I'm definitely picking up the next issue, but this one just wasn't it.

    I was wrong & I was right ... I was wrong about what Beast would do in this issue (I fear another time travel). I was right about Voyager.
    But the fact I'm right didn't make me happy at all. Gladly for them, all the story of Beast & Nadia Pym was very nice & moving.
    And for once in this title they are the star of the story.
    So I don't want to spoil and I will not tell what for me is link to a story the Writters wanted to see as the parents of their story.
    Like I think hulk wasn't shown in this story. So he take is time for exit the cavern (maybe the sunlight made him stand back ^^ )

    Cover - The regular is very nice ... And it's in link to what I read. 2/2
    Writing - Little better thank to Nadia & Hank huma more
