    Newsarama - Edward Kaye May 13, 2013

    Avengers Assemble #15, like #14 before it, has been one of the very best Age of Ultron tie-ins yet. In fact, they were both better than anything yet shown in the main title. Ewing uses the post-apocalyptic background to tell a character-driven story that pulls the reader into tale and keeps them gripped till the very last panel. It's also great to see Captain Britain again. Ewing has a brilliant grasp on these iconic Marvel UK characters, and it's great to see them back in action. This issue almost felt like a backdoor pilot for a new Captain Britain and MI:13 series. If this is indeed the case, then we say, yes please, Marvel! Read Full Review

    It helps that Butch Guice is on board to provide the visuals. Guice's art rivals anything we've seen in the main series. He expertly captures the scope and detail of Ultron's destruction with his usual dark, noir-tinged style. But the premise allows him to branch out quite a bit, with some fun digital sequences that pay homage to the 8-bit era of gaming. It's enough to make one wonder how the core event would have turned out if Guice were the lead artist. Read Full Review

    This means hacking into Ultron is a ridiculously huge step up but he is up to the task. Butch Guice's character work is stunning and really brings life to the book as a whole and Frank D'Armata polished coloring is the cherry on top. As we learn more about what's happened to the super heroes of the Marvel Universe, it pretty safe to say these tie-in issues are more than holding up their end in relaying that information.

    Graphic Policy - Brett Schenker May 16, 2013

    Overall, with the conclusion of this issue, my question is, “what's next?”. It leaves a cliffhanger and opening that I want to see explored more. The issue answers a bunch of questions, but at the same time, it leaves us with a lot of them too. Read Full Review

    Geeks Unleashed - Chris Romero May 9, 2013

    As an avid comic reader, I understand the entertainment value of suspense, but with so much time and money invested into the AU core series and its tie-in books, something's gotta give! Butch Guice and Frank D'Armata make an awesome team for this issue; they know how to lay out intense action panels with ease. Avengers Assemble is one of the better AU tie-in books, and it has enough character development to make it a solid stand alone story. Read Full Review

    Weekly Comic Book Review - Matt Sargeson May 14, 2013

    If you were likewise born in dear old Blighty then Ewing's script may irk, but otherwise this is another solid fill-in chapter to the Age of Ultron event. It's good to see what became of Captain Marvel and it's fun to catch up with Captain Britain and his MI13 cohorts too. Again, nothing indispensable, but if you're into AoU then it's well worth a read. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Resources - Kelly Thompson May 9, 2013

    All that said, "Avengers Assemble" #15AU is not a comic book that will blow you away. There's nothing here that will leave its mark on you forever, you may even forget about it not long after reading. But it is a good solid comic book, that manages to tell a nice heroic story, and excels at telling a complicated one that any reader can pick up regardless of irritating event tie-ins.

    Comic Vine - Jen 'Miss J' Aprahamian May 8, 2013

    Caveats abound, although I can't blame the creative team -- this issue is the victim of tie-in-itis. If you're loving the Age of Ultron stuff, this is another action-packed issue that fleshes out (er"robots out?) the event and takes it on a destructive romp through London. It's well-paced, it's loaded with Brit culture references, and we get to meet some interesting new characters. All good things. But if you're just reading AVENGERS ASSEMBLE? Get ready for some confusion. I can't see how this story will wrap within the same series, so if you're not on board with all of the AU books, it's a pass. Read Full Review

    Marvel Disassembled - Magen Cubed May 9, 2013

    Compared to the last Ultron tie-in, which had some really great moments as Black Widow fought for survival in San Francisco, this issue falls very flat. Its cluttered with thin characterizations and super powers that make no sense, ultimately leading to lots of conflict with no resolution to the larger story. While Im not closely following the Ultron event, I try to give all the tie-ins a fair shake, but this issue does nothing for me. Lets just hope all this nonsense wraps up soon so this title can get back to its original direction. With the solicitation for next issue leading to a tie-in with Captain Marvel (while I do love Captain Marvel), I dont think thats going to happen anytime soon. Read Full Review
