    The second element is the inclusion of Constrictor and Masque. The idea that the Survivors are going to be groomed to be villains because of their actions inside Murderworld has a lot of potential and I cant wait to see what Hopeless will do with it. Finally, the slimy feel of the whole Masters of Evil community strikes a chord with me. No different from a drug dealer offering the first hit free, or a cult empathizing with someone they are trying to convert, the club is such a warm and cuddly place to be, that you can almost smell the rot underneath. I for one cant wait to see just how much more our Survivors can survive! Read Full Review

    Weekly Comic Book Review - Danny Wall Apr 13, 2014

    Bottom Line: This is a good example of a well-done comic book. I care about what these characters have gone through, how it has shaped them into who they are now, and am anxious to see how it all plays out. There is no foregone conclusion to the events and characters in this title, and even if you disagree, there are hints (such as Constrictor and Masque's conversations) that there is still more to be revealed. The sheer amount of stuff going on in a “villain city” is a bit over the top, and I do think the book is still suffering from some interrupted momentum when shifting from Arena to Undercover, but this issue shows a lot of upward trajectory.

    A solid issue for Avengers Undercover. Questions are being answered while leaving room for more to be asked along the way. There is a real stake in the situation they find themselves in and it's good to have those defining choices forced upon them at such an early stage of the book rather than drag it out. I want to now see just what happens when they reach that point of no return, and who will actually be able to go against the temptations that already seem to have gotten the better of a few.

    The series may be slow to build towards its ongoing status quo, but the benefit to this approach is a methodical, believable examination of how Niko, Chase, Cullen, and the rest could actually be tempted by villainy. Read Full Review

    AVENGERS UNDERCOVER is a great book, especially if you're looking for something that's a bit depressing and isn't just good guys battling bad guys. This issue and series deals with a lot more than stopping the Wrecking Crew from robbing a bank. It deals with character who were forced to do some terrible things and how it has affected their lives afterwards. If you didn't like the first issue, chances are you'll not be too enthused with this one as well; however, there's a lot of meat to this book and one you should try out. Overall, I highly recommend this issue. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Resources - Greg McElhatton Apr 9, 2014

    "Avengers Undercover" #2 is another good issue, and so far it's taking the "What happens next?" hook and running with it in a way that should not only appeal to the readers of "Avengers Arena" but also hopefully bring in some new readers. This is a book that's on the right track. Read Full Review
