    Comicosity - Jessica Boyd Sep 19, 2013

    Smart aleck remarks, space fights, and exploding ships equal a book that is all fun and adventure, without any previous reading really required. Whether you are following Infinity, Captain Marvel or just looking for a book to jump on-board the Captain Marvel fan train with, this issue delivers for any level of reader. Read Full Review

    Since this is the last tie-in thatCaptain Marvelwill be seeing, I am looking forward to seeing what DeConnick has in store for the stand alone series, and exploring the character that Carol can become. Also, let's hope that we start to see some more consistent art throughout this series, hopefully from Mr. Olliffe again. Read Full Review

    While I prefer my CAPTAIN MARVEL as a solo series rather than a constant player in crossover events, INFINITY has been a great opportunity for Carol to step up, front and center, and show what she's capable of. We've gotten to see her exercise incredible power, and also make some tough decisions. Ever the soldier, she's prepared to sacrifice it all when her planet's at stake -- luckily, she didn't have to this time. Read Full Review

    Comics Bulletin - Shawn Hill Sep 24, 2013

    Carol's a little too gung-ho to sacrifice herself and there's an extended reference to the birth of Phoenix herself in the face of outer-space mishaps in there somewhere, but you know what? Forget about Infinity, and just enjoy the fireworks. With Pat Olliffe drawing them, they're pretty awesome. Read Full Review

    We The Nerdy - Mario Miranda Sep 23, 2013

    Overall I would not recommend this for either long time Captain Marvel readers or people hoping to get more from the Infinity tie-ins. I imagine we will pick up next issue with the aftermath of Enemy Within so long time readers wont be missing out on much. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Resources - Doug Zawisza Sep 19, 2013

    This story spins out from the events of "Infinity" and the tight "Avengers" tie-ins and points readers back to "Infinity" for the true conclusion, but does very little to deliver closure. Taken on its own merit, "Captain Marvel" #16 works as a Captain Marvel story and it gives readers some explanation of Carol Danvers' Binary powers and guest appearances from a number of Danvers' Avengers teammates, but it doesn't do much to grow the character. After her own crossover with "Avengers Assemble," "Captain Marvel" has played nicely with "Infinity," but I think the character of Captain Marvel can continue to play nicely with the Marvel Universe without tying the "Captain Marvel" comic book into the event so repetitively. Hopefully this title has gained some new readers through the crossover. I'm looking forward to what DeConnick and team have in store for Carol Danvers from here. Read Full Review

    This is the worst example I can think of, of a crossover miniseries simply crippling an ongoing title. The crispness of the usual book is nearly absent as the lead character is saddled with poorly defined alien marauders. The book is weighted down with clunky, hard to read dialogue and too many other characters. Sadly, as a big a champion of this character and the series as a whole, I don't recommend this issue at all. Thankfully, it looks like next issue takes things back to normal. Read Full Review
