    Overall this issue is good but not great. Not into the explanation issues too much. Every issue needs one though, so I can't complain. Definitely pick this up if you are keeping up with this series. 8 out of 10 is what this issue gets from me. Read Full Review

    This book ends with the Avengers in a bit of despair, realizing they are no match for a cosmic threat, let alone Thanos! It is true - Thanos manipulated the situation (as he always does), treating everyone "in the game" like pawns. The good news is, their hopelessness is abated by yet another big reveal - something this book is starting to rely on apparently. ;) Nah, it was good, another surprise - this time a set of cosmic visitors intent on helping Earth and its Mightiest Heroes.

    Perhaps the biggest problem is the slightly shallow plot, but that didn't quite bother me as much as Tony Stark's negativity at the end. Going on about how Thanos is so far above them and anything that deals with outer space is not Avengers business, and the so forth. However, haven't the Avengers been embroiled in the Kree/Skrull War? Didn't they have to deal with Michael Korvac? Aren't they currently trying to stop the Phoenix Force from destroying the planet? Thanos is a major deal, but one would think that Tony would spend more time for them to pull out the victory than complaining about having to deal with problem in the first place. It's a little disheartening to read that attitude from one of the greatest Avengers and it's not helping this book in the least. Read Full Review

    By all rights, this series should have taken on a new level of excitement once it became apparent that Brian Bendis is working to reinvigorate Marvel's cosmic heroes and villains along with telling an accessible Avengers tale. Sadly, the execution just isn't there. Read Full Review
