On an alternate Earth where Wakanda has been crushed from existence and where the Black Panther is a forgotten legend, one man known as T'Challa will forge a new legacy for himself and perhaps even hope for a planet caught in the grips of the god-slaughtering King Killmonger.

    The Shiar Throneworld architecture and King Killmongers fleet of massive space vessels all give the feeling of being in the midst of a conflict in another universe.The fight scenes are bombastic and fun, with some great choreography as TChalla constantly fights multiple opponents simultaneously.

    Next stop in the multiverse is a planet on which T'Challa is rocketed away as a baby for his own safety… stop me if you've heard this one before. Well, fast forward a few years and we meet him again, seemingly going though a crisis of identity. All amounting to a rather duller issue than to be expected from this otherwise great new Marvel series. Read Full Review

    Major Spoilers - Matthew Peterson Jun 2, 2022

    It feels petty, but I'm bothered by the fact that the cover is intentionally misleading, but it's a well-crafted comic with strong art and a story that works even as it puts a few too many pieces on the proverbial board. Read Full Review

    Comic Watch - Matt Meyer May 30, 2022

    Avengers Forever #6 isn't going to melt anyone's brain, or break new ground in sequential art storytelling. But it doesn't have to, and it's unfair to ask that of what's intended to be a fun superhero romp. Ultimately, that's what this miniseries has been do date, and continues to be with this issue. Don't miss out on this below-the-radar gem of a series. Read Full Review

    Action-packed, Avengers Forever #6 is a fun read that attempts to have some depth, even if it doesn't always succeed. Read Full Review

    Geek'd Out - Nico Sprezzatura Jun 1, 2022

    But that aside, it really is a fun little issue with great art by Jim Towe, whose killer Vibranium Man design is already beginning to find use in other applications and adaptations. In the multiverse of superhero oversaturation madness, Avengers Forever #6 is at least worthy of your time. Read Full Review

    This is a perfectly fine issue that continues the themes of previous chapters. Read Full Review

    Solid 8. If only the rest of the series was as good as this issue.

    Jason Aaron seems to be fixated on character vignettes and origin stories right now. This example -- a variant T'Challa cribbing story ideas from a host of different superheroes -- is shallow but fun. The premise will support an origin issue and maybe a few spotlight scenes further on, but not more than that.

    The art features solid (if not groundbreaking) bones and a semi-cartoony finish that I really like. The language is melodramatic and corny, but it doesn't get tiresome.

    Mashing up Black Panther, Spider-Man, Iron Man, Adam Warlock, and Superman (!) shouldn't work at all, but here, it does, albeit in a fluffy "don't think about this too hard" way.

    This is a neat multiversal Black Panther. That's it. There's hardly any story. Aaron can slap together a poetic-sounding script and make this work about as well as it does.

    It was alright. Like the rest of Aaron's Avengers, I wish it would pick up the pace a little but it's hardly just Jason Aaron that writes so decompressed like this. It's alright in that we get an issue dedicated to this version of Black Panther. Basically his origin story and that what you get. I can't be overly picky that one issue is dedicated to that but I do wish that the bigger picture was moving along a little faster. A few more pages to the bigger picture and hinting at more to come would've been nice. I think it will be fun to see the end of all this and the hugely powerful group of multiversal Avengers that will stand up to the Masters of Evil. That's a good idea but I think I'd be more excited to see it happen if the characters we more

    This just felt pointless, in no way does this character bring anything new to the table

    The script was also pretty dull

    Jason, PLEASE leave the AVENGERS!!!!!
    Your Punisher and King Conan are great...ALL your Avengers work is mediocre at best - sorry.

    Jason Aaron continues to tell an unfocused story that at points is interesting but hardly as important or gripping than he probably thinks. At this point, if your reading Avengers Forever, you know what to expect, but I wouldn't recommend anyone who isn't reading it to start.
