What began as an idea and an ideal has now become a movement! But the problem with movements is that not even the Hulk can control them!

    Newsarama - David Pepose Dec 12, 2016

    This book isn't always a perfect one, but it's on some of the most solid foundations of any superhero book on the stands - you owe it yourself to meet your new favorite super-team with Champions. Read Full Review

    IGN - Jesse Schedeen Dec 8, 2016

    Forced romantic drama aside, the general tone and direction series is shaping up nicely. However, Ramos' art style seems even more out of place than usual in this more real-world setting. Read Full Review

    Superior Spider-Talk - Doug Zawisza Dec 12, 2016

    In Champions #3, writer Mark Waid and artist Humberto Ramos head into territory that might intimidate some readers, but certainly falls inline with the driving concept that Ms. Marvel founded this team around. Read Full Review

    AiPT! - Russ Dobler Dec 7, 2016

    It seems sort of unfair to give Champions #3 a numerical rating, as it's almost too experimental to judge on its own, as it's released. The issue feels like a more true-to-life turn from Marvel's typical political commentary, and while that may make some readers queasy, and others excited, the true impact and whether this begins a trend cannot yet be told. It's certainly different, intentionally so, and the individual reader will have to decide if it's a change they're on board with. Read Full Review

    Heroes Direct - Adam Fitch Dec 11, 2016

    Anyway, this issue just puts a plaster on a huge crack. They may have “saved the day” in this instance, but realistically these events happen in a ridiculous amount of places. They've not really solved much. We appreciate the sentiment and the message this issue tries to send, but perhaps it should have waited – or not sent at all. At least the artwork is cool, eh?

    Multiversity Comics - Robbie Pleasant Dec 12, 2016

    It's well-intentioned, and looks great, but that only counts so much when it makes otherwise great characters into frustrating ones. Read Full Review

    Henchman-4-Hire - Sean Ian Mills Dec 10, 2016

    I get it. A brave woman standing up to the idiocy of religious extremists is truly inspiring. And this heroism exists in the real world and should be championed. But Champions doesn't feel likethe place to deal with it, especially not in only the third issue. If Marvel superheroes are going to start tackling some of these serious, real world issues, there has to be a better way than just throwing the Flavor of the Week teen team at the problem so they can slap a quippy Band Aid on it.
