The Champions tried fighting fair. Now it's time to fight dirty. A sinister corporation is cheating the system to try to keep Kamala's Law on the books, so the Champions infiltrate the company to take it down from the inside. But the company's wildly popular app is already turning public perception against teen super heroes. Can the Champions wage war on a trend? And how dirty will their hands get before it's over? Danny Lore (CAPTAIN AMERICA: KING IN BLACK, IRONHEART 2020) and Luciano Vecchio (IRONHEART) take the reins of a daring new era of Champions!

    COMICON - Scott Redmond Apr 21, 2021

    Champions #6 never misses a beat from the previous issues even with a new creative team, who bring their own energy and sensibilities as they perfectly capture teenage voices and the issues that face many of us in the world today. Bright and colorful superheroic colors mesh with the colorful and bright aspects of corporations creating a delightful visual buffet within the issue. Read Full Review

    Monkeys Fighting Robots - Cat Wyatt Apr 21, 2021

    Champions #6 is a bold and busy issue, with the Champions still reeling from the last arc. Yet there's no time for a break, as new plots and enemies are already being established. The art does a great job of capturing the wrongness of what is happening in the series. Read Full Review

    But Why Tho? - William Tucker Apr 21, 2021

    Champions #6 is an excellent continuation instead of a fresh start. This issue tackles the fallout of the earlier five issues. The writers do have their own identities, but the plot threads that Ewing left behind are picked up and continued by Lore as their own plot takes shape. The characters shine, five profoundly different personalities complementing and clashing with each other. The art style and bright colours are exactly what the book needs to draw the attention of younger readers and is superb at helping tell the story. Read Full Review

    Comics: The Gathering - Charles Martin Apr 21, 2021

    Champions #6 pits a still-fragile team of heroes against a merciless corporation that's determined to defeat them online. This issue has to devote lots of time and space to introducing the players and setting the stakes. But it does kick off with a great action scene, and the seamless way the creators segue from combat to conversation holds a lot of promise for future installments. As the pace accelerates, this arc is likely to turn into a real thrill-ride. Read Full Review

    Comic Watch - Rob Stryczek Apr 21, 2021

    Lore sets this team in the direction in wanting to take down Roxxon and their negative influence over social media. We see the team trying to work through their unresolved conflict from the previous story arc, while facing their tyrant of a target. This creative team shows that these characters are nowhere near perfect, yet they won't give up in getting justice for how they have been wrongly treated. It's very clear that this team has a soft spot for Riri and I'm very excited to see their plans for her and the rest of the team. Read Full Review

    Major Spoilers - Matthew Peterson Apr 22, 2021

    Several moments in this issue feel a bit "Hello, Fellow Kids!" for my taste, but it's a good-looking comic book nonetheless. Read Full Review

    While certainly not breaking the wheel, Champions' latest installment is promising some big things for the future of the young heroes and I certainly hope they are able to stick the landing. Read Full Review
