THE EARTH'S MOST HATED HEROES?!
After 700 issues of saving the world, you'd think the Avengers would be due some celebration. But instead the whole world seems to be gunning for them, especially Namor's fearsome new Defenders of the Deep and the reimagined Russian Super-Soldiers of the Winter Guard. And that's not to mention the shocking surprise the U.S. government has in store for our heroes. Plus: The all-new Agents of Wakanda! The mystery of the Avengers of 1,000,000 BC deepens! A key revelation concerning the resurrection of Wolverine! And the next startling new Avenger is revealed!

    Shoot The Breeze Comics - Marcus Freeman Nov 14, 2018

    The Avengers celebrate 700 issues with a bang. Jason Aaron, Ed McGuinness, and David Marquez hit home runs when it comes to story, action, and art. Highlights of this issue include a triple threat match between the Avengers, Defenders of the Deep, and Winter Guard. Lingering plot threads are highlighted including what happened to Loki and the prehistoric Avengers. General Ross has recruited his own team of heroes in response to T'Challa being appointed chairperson of the Avengers, and now the Avengers have more problems than a rampaging Namor.

    Comicsverse - Matt Attanasio Nov 14, 2018

    Marvel's been doing a pretty good job with their milestone issues lately. AVENGERS #10/#700 is no exception. This issue uses every page to its advantage, telling an interesting story, building more into the fictional world, and just being downright fun to read. Read Full Review

    Newsarama - David Pepose Nov 13, 2018

    Rather than chase after fleeting headlines, Jason Aaron and company prove to be much more responsible in Avengers #700, using this anniversary issue to tell a large-scale story with an insane number of characters. The result is, by and large, a good old-fashioned superhero beat-down that eschews flashiness and instead earns its bombastic beats. There's a lot going on with Earth's Mightiest Heroes in this issue, but this issue never feels overstuffed or overproduced. Instead, Aaron and a who's who of talented artists celebrate the Avengers the best way they can " not by throwing readers a stunt, by telling a quality story that stands on its own. Read Full Review

    This is everything you could want in a super hero team book: outstanding story, plenty of action, fun lines, teases of what's to come, and epic visuals. The $5.99 price tag is definitely worth it for all that you get. My hat's off to Marvel for making such a fun book. Read Full Review

    Sequential Planet - Steven Martinez Nov 14, 2018

    For the occasion, Avengers #700 is packed with a longer story and three backup stories. While the backups are future plotlines being set up, the main story s great and continues the ongoing Namor arc. The art is good, with multiple artists and styles throughout the issue. Read Full Review

    A lot of moving parts and a lot of coming attractions without a whole lot of actual incident. Some of the art is pretty, though. Read Full Review

    I just read this, and oh my god this was good. I"m assuming this is the end of Namors arc and that was handled really well, i loved the introduction of the winter guard, i'm assuming they're gonna keep showing up as a rival team. The character of the red widow is really intriguing. The entire story between Ghost Rider and Odin was god-like. Loki made a reappearance and that was really fun. Thunderbolt Ross is planning some stuff that i'm looking forward to seeing. And the new member that was promised did not disappoint.

    Overall, this was a fantastic issue, can not recommend this enough, really looking forward to what Jason Aaron has in stores for us.

    Outstanding issue from Jason Aaron. His story just got immensely intriguing by all of the insane twists and reveals. That JLA nod was great especially with Agent. Marquez and McGuiness were perfect. Plus Irving, Kubert and Sorrentino delivered even more set up/future stories. This is the best $6 i spent in a long while.

    This was a perfect modern superhero comic. Wonderful art, action, intrigue, great character writing, tons of set-up, decent payoff. If every book were this good I’d go broke from buying them all. Literally no complaints here. I want to reread it tomorrow, and the day after.

    The best part of this series is that it feels like the lead team book of Marvel. If you wanted to read one book that is really setting up the big story that is the Marvel 616 universe this is what you need to be reading. This is a big high action story that will keep moving till the last page. The two big books for this week are Avengers and Uncanny X-Men and both are laying the ground for epic stories and they will leave you with more questions than answers. I am looking forward to what takes shape.

    This issue not only progressed this story, it also progress last and future stories! It had great action and great dialogue! Have me excited for what’s to come! Only quiver was that the issue with Namor was cut shorter than I would have liked. Art was amazing!

    OVERVIEW

    Avengers #10
    a) Writing/Script= 9.6/10 (Jason Aaron)
    b) Art= 8.5/10 (Various)
    c) Colours= 8.5/10 (Various)

    Average= 8.87/10

    Best issue of this Avengers run and probably one of the best issues to come out this week. The whole issue was very engaging throughout. Jason Aaron's ideas for the future are beyond awesome and very intriguing. I already had some of the suprises spoiled for me and some reveals were predictable for me but i still found this book very entertaining. The art by all those artists and colourists are very good as well. Cant wait for the future issues.

    2018 attitude, 1965 characterization. I grew up on Silver Age stories like this, where Stan Lee had to write everyone as hair-trigger aggros in order to work in a fight scene, and that was ok because no one was particularly devloped as a character. I guess that’s what Aaron is going for here, what with Namor acting like Silver Age Namor again and all. Just feels kind of shallow today.

    Been a fan of the avengers I wanted to pay tribut to Stan by taking this 700s issue.
    To be fair Aaron neal the winter Guard return at first. And by splitting avengers in duo (Ghost Rider/Tony, T'challa/Jennifer, Thor/Captain Marvel) a give some good storyline. I particulary liked T'challa test for Hulk ^^. And we have Captain America facing alone Thunderbolt Ross. A strong moment where cap is true to himself and the cap from both Civil war comics et MCU movie.
    But then he have some stupid moment. So Namor & his defenders attack a submarine base. I don't like to see Namor as a bad guy. I rather would have accepted to see that Namor is the good side (With plastic/gasoline polition by humans to say the least). And for a moment I was more
