    It's a clever series and it focuses on the positive energy of the younger generation of heroes. I like it! Read Full Review

    Bleeding Cool - Joshua Davison Jul 8, 2017

    This was a great issue; easily one of the better comics with the Secret Empire label on it. Like the most recent issue of Occupy Avengers, it gives the reader what they really want in a situation like this: heroes fighting the powers that be and the injustices they are committing. They are standing up for whats right in the face of tyranny. That seems like it should be more common during an event like this, but for some reason, it hasn't been. Read Full Review

    Comicsverse - Ben Wasserman Jul 7, 2017

    CHAMPIONS #10 finds the Champions divided across the globe in the wake of Hydra's takeover. Mark Waid's writing captures the team's desire to do right while also laying out the difficulties that oppressed individuals now face in this darker world. Read Full Review

    Black Nerd Problems - Omar Holmon Jul 5, 2017

    There's an issue of secret identities being handled poorly that sticks out to me this issue as the team searches for Kamala with the coincidence of “Kamala” being the name chosen randomly by a scared Muslim girl; or that it's public knowledge that Ms. Marvel's first name is Kamala (which I am doubting) being why it was chosen. That was a pretty big hang up for me. All in all, you can see Waid trying to keep the book themes current with what's happening with life imitating art currently. There's still some handling that needs to be addressed with the approach for a better execution. Read Full Review

    IGN - Blair Marnell Jul 6, 2017

    Waid really excels in creating the emotional stakes for the team, especially Miles Morales. He cares about his teammates, and he still has his compassion even when he's helping strangers. The downside of this issue is the rushed conclusion and Humberto Ramos' art. Read Full Review

    Why do I still buy this book? Its kind of frustrating. It has all the potential in the world, but always just falls a little short. I hate to keep bashing it. The stories are never bad either (except for that Gwenpool issue) it just never gets to that next level. I do not have a big problem with the art like some do, its more of the storytelling and team dynamics. Once again, I will probably be here next week saying the same things. Its not bad enough to let go, but not good enough to give high praise.

    This issue uses a situation from "Secret Empire" to plunge the Champions (or 3 of them) into action; it turns out to be an okay issue, as they find their youthful optimism regarding the freeing of refugees disrupted by the complexities of the situation. It turns out to be a solid issue of a series that can be infuriatingly inconsistent.

    A short Champions team tangles with an Inhuman internment camp. Humberto Ramos's art is mostly great, barring some places where seeking detail results in confusion. Some of the characterization rubs me the wrong way: Should Miles be so hot-headed? Should Viv be so passive?

    And like many issues of the Champions, this one presents a moral conundrum that can, with a simplistic read, look extremely bad: One of the Inhumans argues in favor of surrendering liberty in exchange for the relative safety of internment (for the children's sake, of course). It gets loathsome because 11 pages earlier, the same Inhuman watched a Hydra robo-guard *incinerate* two teen Inhumans who were discussing escape. What kind of "relative safety" is that? more

    Just didn't engage me at all - maybe because of the event tie-in. I hope Champions can return to the fun of the first few issues.
