The Avengers' last, desperate plan lies in tatters in the face of Kang's unbelievable power, but a surprise ally appears to give them a sliver of a chance! But Kang didn't become the master of time itself by not having a few tricks up his sleeve, and, as they say, imitation is the sincerest form of flattery... Will the Avengers stop one of their oldest foes, or will ANNO KANG continue forevermore?

    Avengers Mech Strike #5 finally concludes this mech series as Kang's invasion of the bio-mechanoids comes to a close. The return of Black Panther as the herald of Eternity is interesting but the comic doesn't really do anything with it. The mechs are pretty much an afterthought in this issue, and the Avengers don't really play a key role in Kang's defeat, they're all just there to fight more of his ugly biomechanical monsters. However, the art from Carlos Magno and Guru-eFX's colors continue to be great here. If nothing else, the comic got me excited to see their work in the upcoming Kang The Conqueror series.

    Writer Jed MacKay throws some fun ideas in the final story, including alternate versions of the Avengers that are awesome with a Capital "A," but the premise is almost entirely gone. Read Full Review

    This was fun, but I don't really know what the point of all this was?

    I rate it this high solely for Carlos Magno's art that just keeps getting better and better, the guy should draw an Avengers book (CAFU is my first choice, he's second) but Kang here is an idiot who wouldn't be capable to outwit even Jar Jar Binks to save his life, the writer is too dumb for such a character.

    Black Panther uses cosmic Eternity power to pull off the most cliched of all time travel victories while his teammates have a filler-fight with their deadly-dull monster doppelgangers. I expected very little from this finale but *wow* was this still a huge disappointment. I wonder if there was a little creator friction at work here. Dialogue at the start and finish suggests the Avengers need to destroy Kang's tech while he's distracted. But in the middle, all they actually get to do is beat on those bland, ugly monster-vengers. Almost like *somebody* insisted on drawing that stupid fight. And this comic does a perfect job of rendering Black Panther's final assertion -- that the day was saved by Avengers bravery, not cosmic power -- entirely more
