    But Why Tho? - William Tucker Mar 17, 2021

    Champions #5 is a stunning end to a terrific event. By the end of this issue, the story feels complete. Every part of the creative process is used to make the readers feel. For the first three issues, there is a dread that hangs over every page. In #4, there is relief when the main characters are rescued. And within this final comic, there is hope that works as a brilliant final emotion. The colours and art style make this a terrific event for young adults to enjoy, whilst the heavy themes and subject matter resonate due to always being relevant. There are glimpses into the future in the final pages, showing there is much more to come from the Champions. Read Full Review

    Monkeys Fighting Robots - Cat Wyatt Mar 16, 2021

    Champions #5 wraps up the current Kamala's Law/C.R.A.D.L.E. plot arc, and it does so in a way that is reminiscent of major Marvel moments in history. It's a powerful read, and a visually stunning issue to top it all off. Read Full Review

    Weird Science Marvel Comics - Weird Science Jim Mar 17, 2021

    While I was not a fan of the Outlawed story from the getgo, Eve Ewing does a nice job ending her time on the book. We even get a sneak peek of what is in store coming up from Danny lore, and it looks like a lot of fun coming our way. Read Full Review

    Major Spoilers - Jonathan Cadotte Mar 20, 2021

    While Champions #5 does manage to bring things back to pretty much status quo, it does so by either ignoring things from the rest of the series or by solving them in quick, convenient, and safe ways. Read Full Review

    I'm personally looking forward to reading the new status quo being hinted at in the final pages of the issue, but "Outlawed" was just a dud from top to bottom. Read Full Review
