    The Super Powered Fancast - Deron Generally Oct 14, 2020

    Javier Garron has some powerful imagery in this issue. The action is great, especially the fight between Iron Man, Captain Marvel and Khonshu. All of those scenes are framed brilliantly. Garron doesn't let up on the spectacle when the action returns to Earth and the final confrontation between the moon god's forces and the Avengers is visually fantastic. Read Full Review

    Comics: The Gathering - Charles Martin Oct 14, 2020

    This issue's high-stakes fighting, wide-spread team, and breakneck pace all serve to balance the story on the knife-edge of absurdity. Javier Garrón saves the day and nudges things firmly onto the side of awesomeness with his spectacular art. Thanks to the visuals, this finale is a satisfying rollercoaster ride -- and it closes with strong hints about the next story to come. Read Full Review

    "Avengers" #37 is a satisfying ending to a middling arc, but with some impressive superheroic visuals adding to some of the intense fun. Read Full Review

    Word Of The Nerd - Brent Jackson Oct 14, 2020

    So, obviously I was not the biggest fan of The Avengers #37 or this “Age of Khonshu” storyline. It wasn't horrible but it also did not live up to the hype I had for it, either. I can't complain too much; this issue did have some werewolves in it, and I can't help but smile seeing Captain America fight mummies and werewolves around Halloween time. Read Full Review

    "The Age of Khonshu" started with a bang but unfortunately ended with a bit of a whimper. Read Full Review

    Thor god of thunder is one of my favorite runs and god butcher/ bomb is ine of my favorite stories of all time. The fact that the same guy is writing this Avengers series is mind boggling. It just loves to throw good ideas out there and not execute to its potential. This book had good parts but overall was a rushed letdown of an ending.

    I think this is the lowest review I've ever given. I just didn't enjoy this story. The low review is based not on the issue alone but also as my reaction to the conclusion of this story. I was holding out from previous issues hoping that it would end well. It didn't.

    The story is basically this - Moon Knight steals power from the characters far stronger than him. Mephisto is killed many times. Avengers are captured and escape. Moonknight switches sides to help the Avengers. Khonshu defeated. That's about it. There was no good character moments. Constant boring Moonknight inner monologue over everything. And Moonknight has been very interesting with other writers.

    Here's my main problem though. Any conflict that can r more

    This is like being put through a grinder with half its teeth broken off. There's a lot here that I don't like. I think the dialogue was very rough at times. The entire plot is a train completely off its rails. I think Moon Knight's inner monologue is both right and wrong at points. Which deepens the mystery of what Jason Aaron was thinking further. The art wasn't great either. But I didn't have necessarily a horrible time reading this. It kept my attention. I think this is a story that could've worked with much better pacing and a few more drafts of dialogue. I cannot stress the pacing problem here. This arc was terribly paced to begin with and to backload it with the Phoenix was a bad idea. But I guess it was the only way to stop Khonshu. more

    I am not sad to see this arc go.

    Recommended soundtrack for this arc: Led Zeppelin. Every album, played simultaneously.

    I remember back in the day, reading the classic Moon Knight run by Moench and Sienkiewicz, having trouble deciding if it would be cooler to see Moon Knight possessing the Phoenix Force, or Khonshu getting into a fistfight, but lo, it turns out you can have it all! But one question remains: if Stone Age Black Panther had Thor's hammer, is there any reason he couldn't also have Spider-Man's web-shooters?

    The Khonshu saga has to be some of the worst comics of the year. For a guy who did a classic Thor run, Aaron certainly seems to hate Thor, as he has been a non entity in the last 2 storylines.
    Aaron seems to be going for a Dark Metal vibe. Is he trying to do that? What Moon Knight did have to do with all this? With the Phoenix?
    No Avenger in Aaron’s run is written in a compelling way. Is this Editorial’s fault? Blade and Reyes continue to add nothing but neither does anyone else. There is a lot of plot but no drama. Jaw droppingly bad.

    I really enjoyed this entire arc I thought it was both well written and drawn wonderfully. I would say I was disappointed that it was over but then the last two pages set up the next arc and I love it!

    The ending of this arc is not bad... the problem is everything that happens before.

    " Our gods are what we make them. And so the hell are we. I don't need khonshu. Don't need any of the old gods. I am the Moon Knight. The fist of the phoenix."

    I this point I'm glad it's over. Garron and Keith delivered on the art department but Aaron's stuff was a mix of some good ideas and other stupid ones just dragged over many issues and some overturned in one panel for almost no reason. It is what it is at this point. I'm not optimistic about the phoenix stuff but 37 issues in what am I supposed to do.....quit?? lol

    This was a good arc, with Moon Knight acting out of characters and things just ending really abruptly. There's too many things that seem to be happening in this book, and nothing seems to be progressing.
