    Nick Spencer really needs to be given the reins of more Marvel events. While Avengers Standoff became overly bloated as various Avengers and S.H.I.E.L.D.-related comics were drawn into the fray, Spencer's issues have maintained a distinctive balance between lighthearted charm and epic drama.

    Avengers Standoff: Assault on Pleasant Hill Omega #1 was a fabulous ending to this crossover, giving us some gripping twists along the way. It also does a wonderful job of setting up future series, even if the main conflict ended in a whimper. Read Full Review

    If you missed the middle like me, have no fear and jump in" this is just like the ending of a major Marvel Cinematic Universe film" it reads slick and looks pretty. Read Full Review

    I swear I enjoyed this book, but it was so frustratingly close to being something special.I'm sorry, but I don't need Steve Rogers narrating how he thinks this battle is a story "we'll bore our grandkids with someday." I want to see it, I want to feel it. Read Full Review

    Avengers Standoff: Assault on Pleasant Hill Omega #1 has its eyes locked on the future of the Marvel Universe but in doing so, it loses its own plot. Though Nick Spencer took what could have been another run of the mill lead---up to a major event and did some interesting things with it and the characters featured therein, you can't help but feel disappointed at this finale, despite some real surprises. While rendered by two very talented artists that provide a stark contrast in styles for this last issue, Assault on Pleasant Hill Omega doesn't quite stick the landing. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Revolution - Rokk May 6, 2016

    Overall:Avengers Standoff: Assault on Pleasant Hill Omega #1 was a lifeless read that never succeeds in engaging the reader's attention or interest. This bland and uncreative issue serves several editorially mandated stories and plot points and that is about it. There is no way in the world that this issue is worth you hard-earned money.
