    While it may seem like I have provided more evidence in the "bad" section of this review, it only attributes to .5 off the score. Overall, I REALLY enjoyed this issue and I would definitely recommend getting your hands on it. It is a great addition to the "Avengers Origins" series of One-Shot books coming out from Marvel and offers a great introduction story for Scarlet Witch and Quicksilver. Obviously, if I didn't enjoy the issue, I wouldn't have added as much wiki content, so if you are on the fence, this issue's page should offer enough insight to push you off either way. :) Read Full Review

    Don't pick up this comic book. It's bad and muddies up the origins of Scarlet Witch and Quicksilver even more. Instead, go pick up their original first appearances in the Avengers and the X-men. Read Full Review

    I skipped over the Luke Cage issue of "Avengers Origins," but the other two I did read set a nice standard for what to expect from these books. Sure, neither of those stories are "must-read," but both offered additional insight to the development of the titular characters and the stories of said characters finding themselves Avengers-worthy. This issue ignores the standard and offers up a sub-standard. If this brand is to continue, I'm hoping for a return to form closer to what was established in the first two issues of this series. This issue is not only forgettable, but largely dismissible. The redeeming factor here is the limited appearance of a great line-up of Avengers and the visuals of the fight between the Brotherhood and the X-Men in their original blue and yellow uniforms. Even that, however, seems to be set up as another box on the checklist. Read Full Review
