    GWW - Nick Friar Nov 29, 2021

    Jason Aaron and Christopher Ruocchio's The Avengers #50 only leads me to one conclusion: Marvel's next major event is coming. Whether or not that will be contained to the pages of The Avengers is unclear, but this has potential to be far-reaching " with no shortage of action. And while you can still enjoy The Avengers #50 without having read each of the previous title's 49 issues, other Marvel stories are intertwined into this issue. Read Full Review

    Major Spoilers - Matthew Peterson Dec 6, 2021

    It seems like a third of the Marvel Universe appears in this issue and a lot of things happen, setting up for the new Avengers era. The only real downside comes with the pricetag that accompanies an issue five times the regular size. Read Full Review

    AIPT - David Brooke Nov 29, 2021

    Avengers #50 is a good taste tester for where Marvel Comics stories are and where they are going. It's new-reader friendly while also building on stories and characters Aaron has been developing for years. As a celebration of the Avengers it's a reminder in the right hands they are truly awesome.

    But Why Tho? - Collier "CJ" Jennings Nov 29, 2021

    Avengers #750 is a super-sized setup for future Avengers stories that could have used more fine-tuning, though there is some promise in the story and art. I look forward to the release of Avengers Forever, and more of the Masters of Evil wreaking havoc across the multiverse. Read Full Review

    The Comicbook Dispatch - StoryBabbler Dec 1, 2021

    Avengers #50, or Avengers #750, is more about celebrating the Avengers as a concept than the characters. It wraps up the World War She-Hulk storyline and brings some closure to several other characters in the series. However, the big story is the formation of the new Multiversal Masters of Evil, which has some promise as the comic sets up the next big storylines. The Thor backup story is well-written with excellent art and is an enjoyable comic book short story from Christopher Ruocchio and Steve McNiven. Read Full Review

    Wow!!! I for one have been really enjoying Aaron's entire run on avengers but the last few storylines have been incredible! I especially love what happened with echo in the Phoenix story and was actually worried I might not like the world war she-hulk arc but ended up loving it. This book is worth every penny it is rich with massive stories that setup everything upcoming in a phenomenal way! I can't say enough about how much I loved this. It looks like the avengers book is going to be a fantastic read for the foreseeable future. Man, this was great!

    Ehh. I'm gonna give it a little bit higher of a grade just for being an issue of this run that didn't feel so bland. I actually have some enthusiasm for what it set up. It has faults and it's not all perfect but, this issue was fun to read.

    It's been a while since I was optimistic about Aaron's Avengers. I've stuck around mostly out of loyalty to the comic. I can't be the only comic book Reader who does that... Right?

    Well I'm giving it an 8 because by the end of it I thought it was pretty good to get past world war she hulk, and onto something interesting again involving dr doom. Dr doom is basically always entertaining. I liked the girlfriend skin armor doom so that's cool to have around, even if it's an alternate version. I like my 616 Doom bordering on anti-hero anyway, so alternate earth pure evil doom doesn't have to take that away.

    Well, this is a dang hot mess. But a fun one, like a no-kids barbecue with a little too much beer.

    Even though I should know better, given this title's track record with big-picture plotting, I enjoyed this. I accepted early on that this was gonna be a slide show rather than a cohesive story, and so I just appreciated each of the plot hooks cast out willy-nilly.

    On the art front, everything is well done, with many formidable panels. But the sheer breadth of the artist roster robs this of the visual integrity it would need to be a truly great art performance.

    (Nitpick: The voice that Jason Aaron uses for Ka-Zar absolutely drives me up the wall.)

    I had to quit reading this book after the Moon Knight and the phoenix arcs debacles and waste of time. I had to pick this up so I can see where we are and I was pleasantly surprised by it. But it is still mostly setup for the next 50 issues where things would go unfulfilled. It reminds me Avengers 700 when I got so excited for the future and was slowly crushed for the next 35 issues. Aaron does what he wants and I get where he's going but man does he need some fine tuning and someone to get him to skip the nonsense for 6 issues and deliver something worth it. Right now the Avengers and X-men main books are just on a holding pattern for most of the time running the clock to get us to some event. Waste of time.
    With that said I will pic more

    I won't beg a corporation to save this title because... this was pretty good. I liked a lot of the elements, but I thought this was unnecessarily long. At least now that Orb's dead, we can officially cross out the Original Sin event entirely. That's my biggest takeaway. This was a ton of setup and some of it is fun. She-Hulk is back to normal and... I don't really care. A lot of She-Hulk fans got super triggered by her transformation in this series, but I always thought it was fine. I could see how it'd work with her character, even if it meant she was no longer conventionally attractive. After all, that's what's important about strong, female characters. And yes, that is said with the knowledge that She-Hulk's appearance is part of her cha more

    I dropped this book a long time ago because it was unreadable but I wanted to get back for the anniversary at least. And I had some fun. One of the reasons I had fun is that I could feel Aaron's pain for having to turn She-Hulk back to her sexy self, probably because of the tv show. Dude still carries a grudge for fans hating his version of She-Hulk and he peppered the book with hints at that, just as he insulted the fans for not liking his JaneThor. Imagine being a 50 year old man and crying because fans don't accept your stupid bullshit. I also had some fun because the whole multiversal stuff is fun. Dumb fun, but fun nonetheless. It's not great or anything but at least I didn't feel the need to constantly just roll my eyes in the back of more

    I love seeing obscure characters from different corners of Marvel continuity, but Aaron's writing on this title reminds me of nothing so much as Mad Libs. "_______ goes back in time and runs into ________ (who in a different universe is a servant of ________), and ends up teaming up with _______." I prefer a little more attention to making things seem like naturally unfolding events and a bit less randomness.

    It's...... fine I guess. Glad that She-hulk is back to normal, but the Avengers and Justice League books need new writers stat.

    She-Hulk is finally back, everyone! Also, it appears Marvel is once again trying to beat DC at their own game by having Mephisto (or multiple Mephistos, really) kicking off multiversal madness. It's going to get very complicated in here.

    No, no, no, no, NO!

    Comic Watch's Matt Meyer says, and I quote: "Avengers #50 knocks it out of the park on all levels. Don't let the price tag scare you away - this is rip-roaring superheroics at their very best."
    'At their very best', he states, and yet he only marks it as an 8.9...What is better than the 'very best'?

    I like Jason Aarons writing, I do, I can't wait for his King Conan...but he has never, ever, shown that he has the understanding to be even an okay AVENGERS' scribe...It's been 5 years now and he's still trying to win us over, with the sad result that many have turned away from the book.
    PLEASE MARVEL/DISNEY Save Our Avengers!!!!!

    Eu não sei porque ainda tento.
    Depois do Namor "eu nunca mais chorei" vem o Namor com cara de menino e pedindo desculpa pelo roteiro lixo do Jason Aaron.
    Ver o Thor no seu visual clássico, e melhor visual, foi muito bom. Fora o lembrete de que quem enfeitiçou o martelo foi o Odin, vamos ver se o Aaron aprende.

    I hate everything Aaron did with the supreme squadron, I can't believe he killed doctor spectrum and they kidnapped hyperion.

    Marvel should get him out of Avengers
