    Perfection, pure and simple. This book has been excellent since issue #1 and it ended so strong that I wish I could stay in this world longer. At various moments in this issue I cheered, I cried, and I found myself hopeful that, if this fictional world can change for the better, maybe our real one can as well. I've said from the beginning that this series felt important. I can safely say now that it truly is, this is a cautionary tale that leaves the reader with a sense of hope for the future. Heroes are important, hope is vital, and comic books continue to exist as an avenue for us to see both. Read Full Review

    AIPT - Collier Jennings May 29, 2024

    Avengers: Twilight #6 delivers a triumphant and tragic ending, resulting in one of the best comics of the year. Marvel may have billed it as the answer to The Dark Knight Returns, but it feels more in line with Kingdom Come: a story that reinforces what's great about the heroes you love and one you'll return to again and again.

    This was still ultimately a fun Avengers story, one that could have had a bit more weight (and likely would have with a few more issues), but still captured the spirit of the Avengers nicely. Read Full Review

    A great finale to a great avengers story. We need more stuff like this. I wanted to be in this world longer. These characters were handled very well. Some plot threads get a little rushed but the majority of the stuff comes together nicely. Acuna is an art god and zdarsky is as zdarsky does.

    Great Avengers content. Eouldve liked a different villain but maybe they can return to this world another time.

    This managed to be a great series. I think I heard somewhere that Acuna was working on this for a solid year or so, and you can definitely see that commitment and time in the art. Zdarsky, for his part, manages to create a fresh script that never feels like it's going through the motions, or that it's tired, which can often happen in these dystopian future books.

    Plot
    The final battle begins! While Thor faces off against Hulk, Red Skull's secret weapon, who is beating up Captain America.

    On the other hand, Iron Man tries to reason with his son James, who is resentful of the ideas that Red Skull put in his head, but the appearance of Janet, her mother, changes the situation and makes James react. There is no clear explanation of how Janet returns, something related to the quantum realm and a ring.

    Red Skull is killed by Steve Rogers, while Iron man makes the final sacrifice and Thor defeats the Hulk and must eliminate him once and for all, as Banner asked him to.

    Exciting and dizzying closure of this reimagining of the future of the Avengers, however the relation more

    This was good overall. I think the pacing was arguably stacked a little slow early on and then rushed in the final act of the series, and this took away from the emotional stakes/payoff and maybe also a little from the coherence of certain story beats--but it still worked pretty well, and I think the upbeat vibes are in keeping with the Captain America character as he should be. A part of me wonders if maybe this was envisioned as an 8 or even 12-part series and the script ended up being condensed. I enjoyed it. My theory is that they limited it to 6 issues because the art quality is so high and maybe the script got cut down to fit.

    It's good. At first I thought it was lacking some punch and felt a little generic, but it did a good job of making it feel impactful enough.

    (rating for the whole thing)

    Weirdly enough I think this comic gets something or at least how an idea about what the Avengers are about, which is something I feel is often missing. Even if it's never stated explicitly. The debate about if the Avengers are doing too little or too much is often brought up in discussions outside of the comics. That they are too authoritative and so on and this does a good job of focusing a story on that, on them trying to avenge, to redeem. Ready to be in the wrong for the right reasons. I think that's a rebelliousness that is a part of the team, just not often has the space to show it.

    In a way, this is like the ultimate, but in reverse, where the most heroic and admirable traits are pre more
