    It's difficult to do "young heroes" well, and Waid is putting on a clinic here. Highly recommended! Read Full Review

    Champions has been the best book, consistently, since issue 1. Every arc has been amazingly fun and so well written and drawn. Yup, Champions is my favorite book, hands down. Cyclops, Ms. Marvel, the totally awesome Hulk, Spider-Man (Miles Morales), Nova, and Viv Vision should go down in history alongside such teams as the New Mutants and Teen Titans. There is so much more to do with this team and I am strapped in for every ride. Read Full Review

    Black Nerd Problems - Chris Aiken Mar 1, 2018

    Champions remains the go-to book if you want a fun series featuring Marvel's legacy characters. However, a lot of the focus lately has been on Viv. Let's hope, moving forward, that they give some of the other characters a chance to shine, especially the newcomers, whom readers might not be familiar with. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Andrew McAvoy Mar 5, 2018

    This issue was a bit "filler-ish" but I was glad to see that Viv Vision replacement model is not as perfect as she was being portrayed. I feel vindicated as a cagey SOB. Another note of caution, the cast of this book now needs to get paired down again - there are too many characters following the recruitment drive and the equilibrium of the title has been lost. It will be sad if Waid's strong run ends with a jam-packed character heavy book just to make way for a slightly re-calibrated set up under the new creative team. We shall see. Read Full Review

    All told, this book is a solid read for the teen or preteen comic fan in your life, but it's nothing worth getting excited about. Read Full Review

    IGN - Blair Marnell Mar 1, 2018

    The interesting parts are at the beginning, when both "sisters" are paranoid about the other. Android Viv gives her counterpart very good reasons to fear her. But the whole thing is over so fast that there isn't any nuance to android Viv, and she just becomes one-dimensional. Read Full Review
