The battle for the Starbrand heats up like a supernova, as Captain Marvel goes toe to toe with Firelord, Ghost Rider races the Silver Surfer and Brood Thor... tries to eat the Avengers. Meanwhile the Black Widow kicks much butt in outer space with a bold new weapon in her arsenal. That's right, the Black Widow + the War Machine armor = the all-new, all-deadly War Widow.

    McGuinness and Medina deliver some stunningly impressive visuals in this issue. The fights and action feel big and broad because of the deep space setting and the final page is brilliantly designed. Read Full Review

    Comic Watch - Matt Meyer Jan 18, 2020

    Writer Jason Aaron and artist Ed McGuinness hit a home run this issue, leaning as hard as they can into every wonderfully over-the-top aspect of "Starbrand Reborn" they can possibly think of. It's been awhile since the Earth's Mightiest Heroes were this fun! Read Full Review

    Newsarama - Pierce Lydon Jan 17, 2020

    Aaron and McGuinness definitely deliver some really enjoyable moments across the issue and Aaron's foreboding Silver Surfer is always a good turn for the character. But your mileage may vary on this issue if you aren't all-in on this Starbrand story that's been brewing. There's just not much else there. Read Full Review

    If you are invested in finding out who the new Starbrand is, this is the issue for youor the start of a series of themmaybe. Jason Aaron pads out the affair with fight scenes galore and while it all looked fantastic, it could be skipped since the big explanations are yet to come. It's a shame something this big didn't feel like it was. Read Full Review
