    This is, simply put, fun comics. Comics are meant to be fun, and in that regard, it doesn't get much better than this. Read Full Review

    Comicosity - Aaron Long Sep 19, 2018

    Infinity Wars: Soldier Supreme #1 is a fun romp in the What If? situation Gamora has caused in the main Infinity Wars book. This tie-in throws two unlikely characters together in a way that makes a lot of sense and has fun reimagining a very classic tale. Issue #1 has set up what should be a great read with issue #2 and I cant wait to see where this mini-adventure goes. Read Full Review

    Though origin stories tend to be slow for me, I thought this issue was fairly well paced, and it introduces some additional warped characters you'll be sure to love. Read Full Review

    Comic Crusaders - Daniel Clark Sep 19, 2018

    Writer Gerry Duggan takes the creative fun of the What If? format and adds in some event level stakes. For those following the current Infinity Wars story line this will operate as an enriching adventure while those coming in fresh will be just as welcomed as no additional context is needed to enjoy this issue.Soldier Supreme #1 is like hearing one of your favorite jokes reinvented by a new comedian. Many of the beats may be familiar but the differing perspective adds in new layers to an already well-tested formula. 4/5 Rating Read Full Review

    Black Nerd Problems - Khadjiah Johnson Sep 21, 2018

    The unique perspective of the beloved Steve Rogers is ever growing and the transformations are inevitable. I appreciate Duggan and Kuberts contribution to the various sides of this war hero. Infinity Wars: Soldier Supreme #1 gave off a classical vibe that many comic lovers would enjoy. There were times I felt lost, but it did not take away too much from the experience where I felt like I needed to step away. Read Full Review

    Newsarama - David Pepose Sep 18, 2018

    What it is is a frenzied, insane bit of narrative stunting, a reconfiguration of beloved concepts simply because of the sake that they are so beloved. As a result, Infinity Wars: Soldier Supreme falls into that tricky area, being both for diehards who get the references but also for readers who don't take these concepts seriously enough to mind watching them get hacked into pieces. But for those of a certain age and era, this is the kind of stunt that " even if it's not crazy enough to work " it may just be crazy enough to watch. Read Full Review

    Bleeding Cool - Rich Johnston Sep 17, 2018

    Andy Kubert does most of the work selling this, tapping into a style in parts before his time, in others back up to date. It's a good trick, and Matthew Wilson helps the colour, especially in the forest winter scenes, exude the bleakness of war, even when it's away from the front, while still providing the fire and the fireworks of the magic.

    Multiversity Comics - Robbie Pleasant Sep 21, 2018

    "Infinity Wars: Soldier Supreme" is a mixed bag. Some parts of the combination work better than others, and not every scene is a masterpiece, but there's still plenty of good to be gleaned from it. I'm still a fan of each individual behind this issue, and for what it is, it's a worthwhile read with an engaging idea behind it. Read Full Review

    So is it worth it to pick this up? Not really. This is the worst kind of tie-in an event can have: a straight-up money grab for completionists. Read Full Review
