    Aaron truly captures the voice of the Phoenix throughout the issue. This is a skill set that very few writers are able to master. The Phoenix is an entity of light and darkness. She is a balance, creating life and burning away what does not work. Aaron understands this and paints a truly illustrative series of events with a fresh take of the Phoenix Force. Read Full Review

    Javier Garron delivers some impressive and beautifully detailed art throughout this issue. There are so many great visual moments to see in each page and even the starkness of the void has some great imagery. Read Full Review

    If at the end of the first chapter you were still on the fence? I would say that Avengers #41 does much more to give you a reason to invest in this story. Read Full Review

    This issue is all about the fighting, but the definition of fighting has many subtle shades, and the combatants are truly entertaining matches.But they better not have killed Howard The Duck. Read Full Review

    Avengers, Phoenixes, White Rooms, Man-Things, and even throw in a Howard the Duck for good measure. Avengers #41 is a comic that practically demands that you just shut down your brain and absorb Jason Aaron and Javier Garrn's artwork on a completely 13-year-old level, invoking the days when you just didn't want to think too deeply about comics and just enjoy them on a big old dumb and mindless level. People punching people, what more can we really ask of an Avengers comic? And if that's what we demand of our super-heroes, Aaron and Garrn give us exactly what we want. Read Full Review

    If the arc can ride this momentum and find an ending as creative as its character lineup, this will be one of the more entertaining Phoenix stories in recent memory. Read Full Review

    Nerdly - Dean Fuller Jan 21, 2021

    Would I buy next issue? Genuinely on the fence. With so many books looking to command both my money and attention, this just doesn't quite reach that tipping point for me. That being said, not a bad book, and one that should have a following in the younger readership. Read Full Review

    Avengers #41 is a single-issue microcosm of Aaron's run with the team: a solid outing, but there could be more. Read Full Review

    So, we can all agree that the only purpose of this story is to give fans a bunch of costume designs for the Phoenix version of characters? Because that is the only engaging thing in this story for me so far. Read Full Review
