    AIPT - David Brooke Jun 3, 2020

    This issue is incredibly poignant given the actions of the egomaniacal Dr. Doom and the desire for our heroes to be better to enact change in the face of tyranny. Read this to feel inspired that your voice can be heard with a strong message that we can be better -- we just need to fight. Read Full Review

    But Why Tho? - Charles Hartford Jun 3, 2020

    All in all, Avengers Of The Wastelands Issue #5 creates a confrontation worthy of Earths Mightiest Heroes. In its ending, it strives to remind the reader that strength and valor are crucial for a hero but, just as equally important, so is empathy and compassion. Read Full Review

    Weird Science Marvel Comics - Jim Werner Jun 3, 2020

    Avengers of the Wastelands ended in a thud, but did it ever really begin? Ed Brisson filled this finale with forced exposition, cliched twists, and not much else. I am a bit embarrassed that I defended and even recommended this book when it started because, in the end, it was just a waste! Read Full Review
