    In an effective character-driven piece focusing on a fast-becoming fan-favorite character, Avengers Undercover brings its premise to the fore to show how it creates conflict both internal and external. The art is competent but still a departure from Walker's signature touch on the series, and there are some subplots missing here, but the cliffhanger and its implications are great, as always.

    With how Avengers Undercover #6, anything can happen from there though nonetheless one course of action will be bad. We are left with Cammi's fate unknown, and know anothers' fate is up in the air as well. When their backs are up against the wall to pull this move off without getting caught, these are the kinds of situations they should find themselves in. Avengers Undercover continues to capture that inner struggle that young heroes go with because their futures are always up in the air. Read Full Review

    So, this series is doing a fantastic job of keeping you guessing who will become the super villain by the end of it. Read Full Review

    This standalone issue about Death Locket does an effective job giving us a look inside her head and, in turn, gives us a stronger connection to the character. Even though we all know Death Locket can't kill Captain America (that would create just a few continuity issues, no?), Hopeless does a good job making the situation a gripping conflict for her. We know she won't pull the trigger and that'll be the end of Steve Rogers, but will she try and take the shot? I was legitimately glued to these pages to see what would happen next and overall, I was mostly pleased with how that situation went down. Sure, it's very odd that she now looks way older and the conclusion felt way too drastic, but it's still a thoroughly enjoyable read which captured my interest and gave me a better understanding of Death Locket.

    The real problem, however, is that we now know this series is ending with issue #10. There seems little chance of Undercover reaching a satisfying conclusion by then. Read Full Review
