    Overall, this initial entry of the Avengers Prime limited series is very engaging. The scenario that is presented fits the story precisely--as do the characterizations of the three Avengers. The cliffhanger ending has my curiosity piqued for the next installment and for where the journey will take us from here. Read Full Review

    So far, the best way to sum it up is: it feels like a classic Marvel comic - and I consider that a heckuva compliment. Read Full Review

    All told, if Bendis can continue to mine the differences that separate Thor, Cap and Iron Man while simultaneously rebuilding their relationships with one another then this series will be a success. When you couple this reunion that's been years in the making with the fantastic art of Davis, this book could easily be considered my most anticipated Avengers title for the time being.

    The Comic Addiction - Gary M. Miller Jun 6, 2010

    The rest of the book contains a reprint of the terrific story, "The Coming of the Accursed Avengers," by Ralph Macchio and Walt Simonson. It's a short but fun romp through the team's origin, as narrated by the god of mischief, Loki himself. Read Full Review

    "Avengers Prime" #1 begins the work of repairing the damage done to the relationship of the three heroes most consider the core of the Avengers: Steve Rogers, Tony Stark, and Thor. Bendis and Davis get things off to a great start by addressing their problems and moving on to the big action stuff and a classic Avengers villain. Read Full Review

    Can a fractured friendship be forged anew? Can trust lost be regained? Can Tony Stark, Steve Rogers, and Thor stop from killing each other long enough to survive the hell to which they've just been sent? Those are just three questions this new mini-series sets out to answer. There's much to enjoy here including Iron Man in my favorite classic armor, Steve Rogers taking down a small army, and an unexpected villain for Thor to battle. Worth a look. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Revolution - Kevin Jun 7, 2010

    Avengers Prime #1 was solid start to this mini-series. Even though this issue suffered from the usual problems a Bendis Avengers book typically suffers from it was still the best issue of Avengers I have read that Bendis has wrote. It helps that he has the talent of Alan Davis on art who just knocked it out of the park with his artwork. If you are looking for a fun Avengers comic to read pick up this issue because this is definitely a good book. If it wasnt for Secret Avengers I would say this is the best Avengers book but still it is a close second. Pick this issue up if you are an Avengers fan or just a fan of one of these characters.

    What are the reasons for still buying this series? Well, the Enchanteress is back. I like her. The real reason is Alan Davis who proves that he is as relevant as ever no matter what new generation of comic book artists comes after him. He makes Bryan Hitch look like an amateur. I like it when these old pros come out and are given opportunities to show why they are the real deal. Read Full Review

    I have no doubt that Avengers fans have already purchased this book and, like myself, they will stay on board for the remainder of this series no matter their opinion of this opening chapter. However, new readers who are interested in the Heroic Age would be better served finding an alternate entry point into the Marvel universe. Read Full Review

    The reason why I bought Avengers Prime is simple. Alan Davis and Mark Farmer rarely do wrong. In that regard, Avengers Prime is no different, but the writing leads me to the conclusion that I should wait for the trade if all I want to do is enjoy the artwork. Read Full Review
