To deal with the fallout from last month's world-shaking issue #700, the Avengers organize an international super hero summit, gathering heroes from the most powerful nations on Earth. But no one was expecting the shocking new representatives of the United States. The world is about to become a far more dangerous place. Especially for the Avengers. Plus Hulk and Thor try to go on a date.

    The Super Powered Fancast - Deron Generally Dec 12, 2018

    Jason Aaron does a great job of slowing down the action of the previous few issues to dive into the intrigue surrounding this new Avengers team and its place in the world post Secret Empire. Read Full Review

    Comicsverse - Matt Attanasio Dec 12, 2018

    AVENGERS #11 succeeds in that it takes the time to build on multiple facets in play in Aaron's story. Which is definitely required, following the events of AVENGERS #10. And not only does everything read well, but it all looks fantastic to boot. Read Full Review

    On Comics Ground - Marcus Freeman Dec 12, 2018

    Phil Coulson plots against the Avengers and has a secret weapon at his disposal. Thor and She-Hulk advance from flirting to courting with a lot of awkwardness involved. T'Challa tries to hold court with a multicultural band of heroes, but a drunk bear sabotages the event. The Avengers certainly have their hands full and that's without even mentioning Namor.

    As the new chairman of the Avengers, T'Challa finds himself in the most peculiar of situations, and fans are left debating whether he'll be a character they can end up trusting. If that's not enough, the subplot featuring the return of Phil Coulson includes a blood-chilling turn that shows off a whole new side of that character we've never seen before. Read Full Review

    AIPT - David Brooke Dec 12, 2018

    An enjoyable issue thanks to excellent pacing. Aaron balances a lot of plates here and, overall, it's an enjoyable, tension-filled read. Read Full Review

    SciFiPulse - Patrick Hayes Feb 13, 2019

    A great story that features no villains, though the visuals could have been tighter. I'm really liking what Aaron is doing with the characters and how T'Challa is reaching out to other characters. I liked seeing Coulson back in action, though what he did or why he did it, I have no clue. The visuals run from great to better than average. I wish that one artist was responsible for this series' artwork and that the credits properly stated who is responsible for what. Even with all this grousing, I'll be back to see what happens next because I really like the characters. Read Full Review

    Newsarama - David Pepose Dec 14, 2018

    For a so-called "quiet" issue, Aaron and McGuinness do a lot to build investment into the Avengers, leaving this reviewer excited to where the title will wind up going next. Read Full Review

    Graphic Policy - Brett Dec 12, 2018

    The issue is all about characters removing the flashy action from last issue and delivering a focus on characters and relationships. Last issue was the beginning of the set-up and this one continues that with some intrigue. Read Full Review

    Sequential Planet - Steven Martinez Dec 12, 2018

    Avengers #11 has some good character moments and great art, but feels more like a subtle advertisement for future stories still to come. Read Full Review

    Comic Watch - John Jack Dec 12, 2018

    Bit heavy on setup, so the next couple of issues might be fun where this one wasn't. Read Full Review

    Multiversity Comics - Gustavo S. Lodi Dec 17, 2018

    Aaron and team weave in the personal angle of these heroes lives before the proverbial storm hits. By making it more grounded, it lays the base for explosive combat in the future. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Revolution - Kevin Lainez Dec 17, 2018

    Avengers #11 is an example of a comic that had a lot of potential that unfortunately ends up falling flat. The heavy exposition that fills just about every panel turns Avengers #11 into a bit of a chore to read. It does not help that there are several Avengers who are hurt by the dialogue they are given. Hopefully with all this set-up out of the way Jason Aaron can now focus the series on the next big storyline. Read Full Review
