    But Why Tho? - William Tucker Aug 12, 2020

    Empyre: Avengers #2 is an incredibly enjoyable tie-in issue to the exciting event. Zub s wone of the best writers is coordinating huge casts of characters, and this small series is very reminiscent to his work on Avengers: No Surrender and Avengers: No Way Home, two comics I adored. I am a huge fan of comics that pit rare groups of heroes together against minor villains as it creates unique interactions and combinations. Read Full Review

    Empyre: Avengers smartly leans even heavier into underused members of Marvel's roster in its sophomore issue with a worthwhile payoff. Read Full Review

    Great one-liners and solid visuals anchor a tale that truly didn't need telling against an enemy you won't remember. Read Full Review

    Final Thoughts: An event tie-in should give you perspective on what happens outside the main story, which is what Zub is doing, it's just unfortunately not entertaining. It's okay, and even possible, to have a crazy, fun, exciting, and major plot points in a tie-in to create a reason for its existence. Empyre Avengers needs that hook otherwise, there's no reason to pick this title up. This story is okay, and I like the art, but an Avengers title needs to be more than just okay. Read Full Review

    AIPT - David Brooke Aug 12, 2020

    I want to care about this book, but unfortunately, it focuses mostly on a group of B-tier heroes in an adventure that seems to go nowhere. It's unfortunate writers like Jim Zub didn't have the opportunity to take back heroes that had tie-in books dropped, since Thor could have been far more interesting in a story like this. That said, there's a lack of drive to the story and it feels quite unnecessary. Read Full Review
