• These are the stories of the end of the world, and of the people who faced the end together.
• Some of them wore costumes, and some of them didn't. Some had super-human powers, and all some had were each other.
• They were the Mighty Avengers. And this is what they did on the last day.

    It's issues like this which makes you hopeCaptain America and The Mighty Avengers is a title surviving Secret Wars. If it doesn't continue, a lot of really good characters won't have a book and that would be terrible. Very useful heroes left with untapped potential like Monica if that were the case.

    For many readers, their enjoyment will come out of how much talking they enjoy talking heads. For fans of Jonathan Hickman's Avengers and New Avengerssome of this issue may be a little repetitive, but enough new wrinkles are added by including the thoughts and opinions of another set of characters that it makes Time Runs Outfeel even more epic than it already did. For fans that have just been reading this book enough information is given that it is feasible to be able to jump intoSecret Wars straight from here. Captain America And The Mighty Avengers #8 isn't perfect, but still remains an example of a tie-in of this nature done right. It sets a great example for all “Last Days” titles yet to come. If this is what we can expect from these titles going forward then readers are in for a solid event both on Battleworld and before. Read Full Review

    Loki: Agent of Asgard scribe Al Ewings penultimate issue of C.A.A.T.M.A. sets the tone as to which way this shitstorm of Infinity Gems and secrets is heading. Ewing does a great job showcasing the dynamic relationship between the All-Black Cap Sam Wilson and Old Man Rogers, while Luke Ross(Brubaker'sCaptain America) pours out just the right mannerisms to express the Mighty misforgivings when it comes to the secrets held by Mr. Fantastic, Black Panther and the bunch. Watching The Spectrum Monica Rambeau go H.A.M. was even better! Shes one power who could play a dark horse in future Secret happenings. But hey if Luke Cage is indeed closing down these doors, at least it looks as if hes choosing to shut it down in style. Read Full Review

    Overall, Ewing brings a lot of social issues  to his writing. More than the issues at hand, this book focuses on the individual characters. This isn’t something I see too often, but when I do, it’s like seeing a dog walk on its hind legs. I know you know the feeling; don’t even deny it. If you’re anything like me, and love reading about the individual characters in respect to one another, you have got to check this out—and let me know what you think! Read Full Review

    AiPT! - Robert Reed May 14, 2015

    In many ways,Captain America and the Mighty Avengers is the most classic feeling of the current Avengers titles. Its focus on character interaction and the familial nature of team dynamics hearkens back to a number of popular runs on Earth's Mightiest Heroes throughout the years. This most recent entry is no different. Al Ewing's script is emotional and complex, taking risks that many writers would avoid, and the art by Luke Ross drives the issue forward. The tie-in toAvengersandNew Avengers both strengthens the issue while providing its biggest flaw, butCaptain America and the Mighty Avengers#8 is a good entry in a title that anyone who likes character work mixed in with superheroes should be reading.
