    It's funny what difference an issue can make, as my biggest complaint from issue one was rectified almost immediately. If the book jumps around from issue to issue while telling a larger narrative that will be fine. The most important thing is that within those issues the creative team continues to balance the plot and character development as they did in in this issue. Avengers World has gone a long way with its second issue In showing that it will stand alongside of Avengers and New Avengersas the flagship titles of the Avengers line. Read Full Review

    My worries about Avengers World are, for now, at least, gone. The book is delivering on story and art, has some great characters, and, most importantly, makes me excited for the next issue. I'm not sure how I feel about the $3.99 price tag on a bi-weekly title, but for now, I'll gladly continue to give Hickman and company my money. Read Full Review

    Between that quality and Stefano Caselli's gorgeously expressive artwork, this series is quickly shaping up to be a superior book to Avengers. So any fears that Avengers World might be a pointless, redundant, or unnecessary addition to Hickman's saga can be safely put to rest. Read Full Review

    AVENGERS WORLD #2 is pretty dang fun. It feels like an Avengers book while giving the reader something new, and while this issue really focuses around Smasher, she's a pretty awesome character. We get a nice glimpse into her past and her connection to her grandfather, although I really didn't like her costume design at the end of the issue. This series has me roped in and while it's isn't amazing, it certainly is a very fun read. Read Full Review

    All-Comic - Derek Baker Jan 22, 2014

    Avengers World #2 is not what we thought it might be, but its still a great issue. Hickman and Spencer are too good to pass up and Caselli is drawing his tail off. I hope the rest of the All-New Marvel Now! books are this awesome. Read Full Review

    "Avengers World" #2 is fun and inventive, and it's got a proverbial spring in its step as it moves forward. I was a little wary about yet another Avengers title debuting, but Hickman, Spencer and Caselli are making it so enjoyable that I just can't complain. This is a nice addition to the Avengers family.

    Newsarama - Rob McMonigal Jan 24, 2014

    After the rapid-fire events that set the premise for this one, it's disappointing to see the focus placed on one story here, dulling the scope. The character work for Smasher is well done by writers Jonathan Hickman and Nick Spencer, but slows down the narrative. Read Full Review

    Weekly Comic Book Review - Hugo Robberts Lariviere Jan 22, 2014

    The good approach to the characterization of Smasher, the use of neat ideas from Spencer's previous work and the very nice art hides a tale that doesn't have much surprises and that doesn't progress that much. It's nice, but a bit slow and uneventful. Read Full Review

    Like I mentioned before, I'm becoming a fan of Smasher, so I hope to see her come out of this mission unscathed. You can bet your ass that I'll be picking up the next issue to see if she does. Read Full Review

    Multiversity Comics - Brian Salvatore Jan 24, 2014

    This issue feels very slight " half poor re-tread of Smasher's origin, and half poor re-tread of the Builders arc. Caselli does some nice work but, ultimately, this is further proof that "Avengers World" is a book that is very, very much in need of a point, and fast. Read Full Review
