    Black Nerd Problems - Omar Holmon May 4, 2017

    We get a good talk and bonding between Hulk and Cyclops that results in, of course, the greatest X-men tag team team-up move. Also, Nova takes action into his own hands that will force the group to see him in a different light and highlights just how underestimated the MVP Spaceman really is. Champions continue to be a book that's not only needed for the teen heroes in Marvel, but for the teen audience of readers, and team books for Marvel in general. We're eight issues in and Champions continues to separate itself from the majority of team books for not only Marvel Comics, but other publishers as well. Read Full Review

    IGN - Jesse Schedeen May 4, 2017

    In some ways, the "Champions vs. Freelancers" storyline has been a disappointment, as the series has done little to flesh out the latter group or make them feel like a compelling bunch of characters in their own right. But they have, at least, had a profound effect on the Champions as they struggle to establish their place in the ever-changing Marvel U. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Dan Mayhoff May 8, 2017

    Champions gives us great interactions between the team and ultimately solves the issues that our team was facing after the situation with the Freelancers but not a whole lot actually happens. First off, the whole idea behind this team was that they weren't going to be a part of the Avengers anymore. So, why are they constantly in fear that the Avengers are going to come and scold them? I honestly would have loved to see one of them say “Screw what the Avengers think!” There's just not a whole lot to this issue and it's important to develop the relationships in this team but I think it could have been done much better.
