    You might say that he's still got a lot going on and between Avengers and New Avengers, he's not entirely delivering on all the expectations the fans have. This series seems a lot different because Bendis is focused and putting a lot of effort into bringing these three legendary characters back together. All the Avengers fans out there would definitely be better off if they picked up this series. Read Full Review

    As this series hits its mid-point, it's still a lot of fun and - if for the art alone - well worth picking up. Read Full Review

    Even the slightly-too-chatty nature of the characters in "Avengers Prime" (there are several moments where you might want to strangle Tony Stark just to shut him up) can't detract much from the overall fun and joy that goes through "Avengers Prime." There's a twist or two revealed at the end of this issue, and I suspect before it's all over those twists might get another layer pulled off to show that we still didn't know what's really going on. I'm more than happy to settle in for the ride. This is a big heap of fun. Read Full Review

    The story doesn't disappoint either, particularly now that Brian Michael Bendis seems to have found his rhythm with the scripts. This issue begins the process of reuniting the three Avengers, allowing plenty of time for Steve and Tony to play off one another. The humor is admittedly a bit overdone in spots, with Tony's dialogue in particular being overwritten. But in general Prime offers exactly the sort of unfettered fun and adventure Heroic Age promised. I just wish the series didn't seem to so frequently fly in the face of recent events in the main Thor series. A script dealing with Hela and the state of the other Norse realms is bound to run into continuity conflicts at the moment. However, that should hardly prevent fans of classic Thor and Avengers stories from digging into Prime. This mini is steadily improving and continues to justify the bimonthly wait. Read Full Review
