    Captain Marvel has been remade as one of Marvel Comics premiere A-listers, and while it may have begun with Brian Reed, Kelly Sue has cemented the character and defined her in ways that she hasnt been in over forty years. This issue even gives her a plotline thats all her own, and while it may lag in spots, I still think its one of the best on the shelf. The cross-over with Avengers Assemble (which Deconnick has also uplifted of late) is a perfect fit for continuing the storyline, and even stands fairly well on its own. But if youre a fan of Capt. Carol Danvers, theres NO reason not to pick this up. Read Full Review

    Though this title has largely been about the group dynamic between the members of the team, this issue took a particularly personal turn for Carol Danvers. It's great to see how Carol's personal demons are beginning to affect the people around her, especially her fellow Avengers. DeConnick raises the stakes with this returned villain from Carol's past; both Yon-Rogg's connection with the Psyche-Magnitron (the source of Carol's powers) and his subsequent renaming reinforce the personal nature of his attacks and make him into a formidable foe both for Captain Marvel and the entire planet. I can't wait to see how the Avengers tackle this villain, whose only limitation seems to be the scope of his own imagination. Read Full Review

    IGN - Benjamin Bailey Jun 12, 2013

    The art provided by Matteo Buffagni is not your typical superhero fare. His character work is exaggerated and fantastic. The Hulk is especially great since it appears his stance and movements were based off of a gorilla. There's a really sense of energy in these pages. Unfortunately, it's not all good. Some of the action is structured strangely and as a result is hard to follow. It took me multiple reads to figure out exactly how the Avengers beat the Brood and I'm still not 100% sure that I'm even right. It's confusing, to say the least. Read Full Review

    Marvel Disassembled - Magen Cubed Jun 13, 2013

    This issue serves as another solid chapter in this event. The somewhat generic revenge story works rather well as this plot continues to unfold, spruced up by DeConnicks excellent use of dialogue. The action and adventure keep things moving at a good pace, peppered by humorous exchanges and enough one-liners to give all the characters a chance to shine. Buffagni deftly handles the action with a lot of energy and grace, creating dynamic page layouts and panel compositions. Bellaire and Wilsons colors really make the scenes pop, giving the spaces the character inhabit a light and airy feeling. Overall an enjoyable read. Read Full Review
