    This thoughtful character study masquerading as an action team-up is just as superb as it when it first began, if not more so. Read Full Review

    Beyond The Panel - Jideobi Odunze Sep 4, 2019

    Sam Alexander getting his power back was worth the wait, and so was what we got out of Champions #9 too. This situation that the team now faces was perfect for the opportunity created to explore how this team can rise above what initially caused some of them to part ways. The heart put into this chapter was wonderful, and reminds us of what we will be missing from our Marvel books once this story concludes. Read Full Review

    Black Nerd Problems - Chris Aiken Sep 8, 2019

    Towards the end of Champions #23, things look dire than ever. However, for the first time in a long time, there seems to be some hope on the horizon. While Mephisto's games may have splintered the team, the series of events to follow just might make them stronger than ever. Another fun issue in the books for Champions, and some interesting development with plenty of the OG members of the team. The approach showdown for the next issue should be an exciting one.

    Comics: The Gathering - Charles Martin Sep 4, 2019

    This issue of the Champions moves the whole volume toward a climax. It looks good and the seismic upheavals in the plot make dreadful sense. The scope is so wide and the developments are so rapid-fire, though, that there's little room to give anyone much of a distinctive voice. For a team as amply stocked with unique personalities as the Champions, that's a bit of a shame. Read Full Review
