    Comic Watch - Chaston Nov 2, 2017

    It's really simple, this book is just fun! Champions is a consistent joy to read and even as part of this crossover with the Avengers. Champions shines as bright if not brighter than the Avengers. This type of book has been a breath of fresh air not had since the very first Young Avengers, New Mutants, or New Warriors. It is exactly what you want from a teen book. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Andrew McAvoy Oct 23, 2017

    All in all this is a solid issue and while this reader would prefer The Champions without the Avengers, I'm just happy that the Champions have (so far) survived the Marvel Legacy shake-up. Plus there is a really funny moment between Vision, Spidey and Cyclops that was the highlight of my comic week. Read Full Review

    Black Nerd Problems - Omar Holmon Oct 20, 2017

    This doesn't feel like a must-have crossover event but it's still good to see where these two groups stand with one another months later. Let's hope that there's a big pay off now that we know The High Evolutionary world is coming into view as the plot thickens. Read Full Review

    The issue is entertaining and while it didn't blow me away, it was fun enough to have me come back to read what comes next. Read Full Review

    Bleeding Cool - Lacey Jackson Sep 28, 2017

    Overall, it's the beginning of a crossover arc, and thus holding out on anything too attention-grabbing just yet. Thankfully, there are plenty of endearing moments to smooth out the edges and keep the plot going. The best parts are yet to come, but at least you'll get to enjoy Ramos's killer art in the meantime.

    Monkeys Fighting Robots - Brandon J. Griffin Oct 22, 2017

    This issue had moments where it felt like it was dragging its feet, especially given that we haven't actually gotten to our main villain. The character interactions and blossoming chemistry outweigh my growing impatience. The High Evolutionary is an all-time great Marvel villain, I anxiously await his arrival. Read Full Review

    Another very good issue. Not a war against each other like I feared at First in the sollicitation.
    I like each team Waid propose here & how each of them resolve the problem they have in hand.
    The same one but in different part of the globe, & with different approach.
    I find it smart to separate both Spider Men. And I find very nice the touch about Viv & Vision relationship.
    All teammate have something to bring, and that what I expect for both team.
    Champion stay the best Teenage Ongoing Issues I read for now.
    Cover - Well that a little lie, but for the sake of the surprise we read inside 1/2
    Writing - 3/3
    Art - Love Ramos 3/3
    Feeling - This kind of reading heal my heart wound ! 2/2

    We get a bit closer to answers in this issue after what was presented in Avengers (part 1) for Worlds Collide, but the main focus of this issue is in the teams working together. This plays in to the fact that parts of the teams are made up of a former Avengers team broken apart and now forced to work alongside one another with their new recruits. Mark Waid loves to work with character dynamics and the playground here is vast. The teams split up in groups of two or three to stop large buildings around the world from collapsing when tremors are being created by High Evolutionary technology. Hercules and Hulk do a show of strength and boasting while fighting a genetic creation of the High Evolutionary. It is a great back and forth of egos. One more

    Not as fun as the Avengers part one, the story seems a little scattered and the action didn't really grab me - let's hope things improve when the High Evolutionary shows up.

    I like the interaction with the avengers. Especially the Vision / Viv storyline.

    Waid does as well as you can do in the midst of a crossover, and art is as good as ever. It was nice to see a lot of major cities represented, but lots of variety results in a lack of depth. We were going to get the Champions-Avengers reconciliation at some point, but we're only on issue #13 - give me more actual Champions backstory and interactions!

    Pretty average read, but continues the current story line. We get some new advancements and for once in this series the art is pretty enjoyable. Overall, not a great book, but one that serves it's purpose.

    The global day-saving efforts of the Champions and Avengers don't slow down the still-mysterious plans of the High Evolutionary. It's a little frustrating that the HE's lackey gives this busy issue a cliché "your efforts are too late, moo hoo hoo ha" conclusion. Mark Waid's script starts pretty brilliant but runs out of steam halfway through. From the Shanghai scene onward, both the problem-solving and character interactions feel very dull. Humberto Ramos's art is scrumptiously vibrant throughout; this is a very pretty comic.
