If you thought you knew the beginnings of the Marvel Universe, you were wrong! Odin and his Prehistoric Avengers represent a period of Marvel history that's never been explored. That exploration begins this issue with the origin of the very first Ghost Rider, one who rides a flaming woolly mammoth and battles a savage and familiar foe!

    This is the kind of series he was meant to write, and I'd love to see more of it. Read Full Review

    This book is absolutely perfect. The story, art, colors, and letters are all at the highest possible caliber, delivering a must-read, must-own story for every comic fan. This is fun, thrilling, and incredible to look upon. This is why comic books continue to be published. This earns my highest possible recommendation. Read Full Review

    Comicsverse - Matt Attanasio Sep 6, 2018

    AVENGERS #7 will quickly grip you with the story of the first Ghost Rider. It's a genuinely sincere tale, one that perfectly paints a picture of who this prehistoric hero was. Read Full Review

    On Comics Ground - Marcus Freeman Sep 6, 2018

    Jason Aaron takes a break from the present day Avengers, to revisit the Prehistoric Avengers. Aaron this time focuses on the Prehistoric Ghost Rider. Jason Aaron must have had as much fun writing this issue as I did reading it, especially with his history with the Ghost Rider character. The tragic rise of this Ghost Rider was an exciting and entertaining story, which is a testament to strong writing and art. We probably haven't seen the last of these prehistoric heroes, and their actions in the past will probably continue to have effects on the present day Avengers. Read Full Review

    Comic Watch - B.K. Derbidge Sep 11, 2018

    Though somewhat blindsiding to knowledgeable Ghost Rider fans, this well-done issue not only raises MANY more questions than answers but leaves me anticipatory for potential answers to come! Read Full Review

    Black Nerd Problems - Brandon Lawrence Sep 7, 2018

    It was great to get a little taste of Sara Pichelli. She really got to play around with the medium in a story of dank caves, snowy tundras, and flaming mammoths. It was just amazing to look at. There's a fair amount a conversation between the hero and villain which worked out because Pichelli puts a lot of dynamism in the characters' faces. You can feel the tension of the scene and it makes the comic that much better. It's a shame she won't continue on the book in the upcoming arc but it was great while it lasted. Read Full Review

    Comicosity - Aaron Long Sep 5, 2018

    Avengers #7 makes me happy as a reader for a few reasons. 1) I like the constant thread through this volume of these “original” Avengers that Odin assembled. They are dynamic and interesting. B) Fire. Hellfire + Mammoth. 3) This creative team knows how to make plot beats drop at the right time with the maximum impact, and it shows throughout this issue. Read Full Review

    Comics: The Gathering - Harlan Ivester Sep 5, 2018

    I hope the structure of the first arc of Jason Aaron’s Avengers was just suffering from some sort of editorial push. If the book keeps up like this, it will be exactly what we wanted from the start. Avengers#7 takes a giant step forward in pacing, dialogue, structure, and equally important, the art. It all meshes together so much better. If this run hasn’t been your thing so far, give it another shot. Read Full Review

    At any rate, hopefully future issues will contain more adventures starring the team whose name is up there on the top of the cover. Read Full Review

    Sequential Planet - Steven Martinez Sep 5, 2018

    Avengers #7 breaks from the modern day story to tell the origin of the Ghost Rider. The story is good and self-contained, with great art that fits the story well. Read Full Review

    Avengers may still be finding its feet, but this trip to the dawn of recorded time is exactly the kind of shot in the arm it needed. Read Full Review

    The Super Powered Fancast - Deron Generally Sep 5, 2018

    The story itself is told really well. I was engaged with the characters and satisfied with the reveals, especially the one at the end. The only flaw I really had with the issue is that the pacing of the story made it feel too short. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Revolution - Kevin Lainez Sep 7, 2018

    Jason Aaron clearly had his best intentions in mind by trying to use Avengers #7 to reveal Ghost Rider 1,000,000 BC. Unfortunately this is something that was not built to, making it tough to actually connect with this version of Ghost Rider. It does not help that certain story choices just further drove home how uninteresting this version of Ghost Rider is. That all added up to Avengers #7 turning out to be nothing more than a filler comic book that you can pass on reading. Read Full Review
