    Monkeys Fighting Robots - Brandon J. Griffin Nov 17, 2017

    It remains to be seen how strong both of these titles are away from each other, but so far this crossover has more than delivered for both teams. Four issues in and it's avoided dragging its feet, instead it's getting better the more it unfolds. Read Full Review

    Again, it's cool to see these two teams crossing over but I'm already ready to get back to that Champions-led storyline. No more features till The Champions take care of their loose ends. Read Full Review

    Instead of a pivotal turning point, this crossover has been largely forgettable so far. Read Full Review

    Comic Watch - Chaston Dec 13, 2017

    Unfortunately, Part 4 of this crossover is the weakest in this arc. It's too fast and too much in such a short amount of time. There isn't enough for real character moments and this is probably the time it was needed most as Vision comes face to face with his altered daughter for the first time. Read Full Review

    Yes, two issues into Legacy and the one Marvel book I love the Champions has lost me. Read Full Review

    I have not been one to fight back on Marvel's launch into diversity. Most of the Legacy characters suit me fine. I was a little sad to see Viv replaced with a human self though. Seeing a teenager that had to deal with the fact that she was so unlike everyone else as a synthizoid was very compelling. It also created a nice Vision counter part for the Champions. It is hard to say if Viv becoming human is a permanent state since solicitations seem to imply otherwise, but if this is the new norm something could be made of the fact that Viv seemed less interested in becoming more human like her father. She always seemed curious about humans, sure, but never really wanting for the experience. She even turned off her emotions after the loss of her family. Forcing her into that creates a lot of issues. Such as lack of consent, trauma, and the learning of that change. Both options have paths to explore, so I can't be too sad. The rest of the issue works well as the team members make their way to the counter-Earth and learn the entirety of the High Evolutionary's plans. The fight between smartest heroes continues. While not all the characters get a chance to shine, the ones that do are done well. The highlight is the relationship of Viv and Vision. Vision has recently had to deal with the loss of his family and he shows it still effects him in his treatment of Viv. It is a touching moment in the continuing crossover. Waid has delivered a solid entry in the Avengers mythos. Ramos really seems to be coming into his own when it comes to art on the book. Some of that could be the help of excellent colors and inks. I was very satisfied.

    I thought this issue was pretty good. It leaves the stakes high and poor Viv! The story could be a little more fine tuned but, I enjoyed what we got. The art still remains a low point and this series would benefit with a different artist. Overall, a fun read that brings us closer to the finale of this crossover.

    This issue wasn't anything special. Now that we know High Evolutionary's scheme, this crossover has become sort of deflated. I really do not care for what happened to Viv. I think it makes her less useful as a character and this isn't going to help her stick around.

    A little quick on the end. Both time came at the same time in the fortress while one was in this world much longer.
    Ok maybe Hulk calculation was that precise. I love the new Viv, even if she will lost all her power, and that we will see her less or no more. That make a very good drama moment, Falcon are more chance than Viv.
    I wonder who this time the High evolutionary fear. The last time (In new warriors that was the celestials who didn't came at all ^^)
    I believe his ending wasn't really one (Like Missy in Dr who season 8, I believe it's a teleporter) ^^

    Cover : 1/2 Good but not that good. Even if that in relation with the new statu of Viv, in the cover she's still a android (If not the Preview will have spoiled us ... But that would be not the first time Marvel spoil too soon).
    Story : 2/3 I find it good, but with a little something that would be more good.
    Arts : Ramos does the kind of art I love. 3/3
    Feeling : So two story for the conclusion ? That would be one too many ! 1/2

    What a shame. Ramos delivers, as usual, the Visions have sweet moments. But Champions is about the team and their connection, and none of that is evident here.
