The devastating end of Civil War has two decidedly different reactions from the Mighty Avengers and the New Avengers! If you thought heroes were divided during the War, just wait until the aftermath!

    Crucially, for a book which is all about the feelings that are connected with death and the grieving process, there's barely any exploration of the effect of Captain America's sudden death, and very little depth to the various characters' reactions to his passing, all of which are painted in fairly broad strokes. Considering the supposed importance of the event in the Marvel Universe, readers might be forgiven for expecting this limited series to provide something a little more profound and more closely tied to Cap and his legacy, whereas these two stories read like a couple of back-up features that have been shunted together to fill space. Whilst the issue might have worked slightly better as two completely separate short stories ( la The Confession), even then it would probably struggle to stand as worthwhile. Read Full Review
