    This may sound like wool-gathering on my part, but I, as a comic book fan, am always looking for a new book that refreshes me on why comics can matter and I believe with every inch of my being that Mighty Avengers is that book. Its a story about misfits coming together, belonging, becoming a family and contributing to the larger good. Isn't that something that we all want? To belong? To never be alone? Mighty Avengers shows us that with comics, you are never alone. You will always have a place amid the ranks of Earth's Mightiest Heroes. We are all Avengers. All we have to do is speak the word and they are by our side, no matter what. Read Full Review

    Marvel Disassembled - Mike Nov 6, 2013

    Mighty Avengers is probably one of (if not the) best tie-in titles to Infinity right now. Read Full Review

    Overall this was a very fun, Mighty Avengers proves to be that kick ass book that knows traditional heroics. The banter between Spider-Man and Spider-Hero, the action, the team dynamic, Mighty Avengers really has it all and has a great balance between them. Everything down to that final speech that Luke gave at the end was brilliant, summing up what we can expect from the rest of this series. Read Full Review

    AIPT - Jordan Richards Nov 6, 2013

    Mighty Avengers #3 was an enjoyable conclusion to the first arc (though it really didn't tie into Infinity much) and offers up an enjoyable cast of characters to follow in the coming months. With the fact that every character got a chance to shine and was utilized well without anyone getting the shaft this arc, it comes across as one of the better team books Marvel has put out in recent memory. It's recommended if you are looking for a fun alternative to the bigger Avengers books out there. Read Full Review

    Crave Online - Andy Hunsaker Nov 7, 2013

    Overall, though, Mighty Avengers is jam packed with entertaining superhero action. Read it, support it, and make sure that nobody can make the dumb argument that non-white characters can't sell a book. Read Full Review

    Shadowhawk's Shade - Abhinav Jain Nov 9, 2013

    With the first arc over, I'm hoping that Al Ewing can take the story off in its own direction and create a really separate Avengers team in all respects. One that feels more relevant than all the other high-profile Avengers books. Read Full Review

    One Quest - Chris Cobb Nov 8, 2013

    The best part of the Mighty Avengers is it actually feels like an Avengers book, with a group of heroes coming together to save the day from something no single one could take down alone. Read Full Review

    Henchman-4-Hire - Sean Ian Mills Nov 9, 2013

    These first three issues make for a fun little comic as a random band of heroes come together to save the city from disaster. Now we'll see where they go from here and whether or not anybody cares about this group of Avengers in the midst of all the other groups of Avengers. Personally, I don't"at least not yet.

    IGN - Jesse Schedeen Nov 6, 2013

    As usual, the main, glaring weak spot in this book is the art. Greg Land's photo-referenced figures do nothing to enhance the action or the scenes of banter and bickering. His trademark poses continue to crop up, and his characters often display broad emotions that aren't particularly well suited to the tone of the dialogue or the situation at hand. A book like this needs more visual subtlety at times to offset the bombast. Read Full Review

    Population Go - Chris Lemmerman Nov 17, 2013

    Mighty Avengers' first arc comes to a satisfying close, bringing the team together for a big hurrah as they defeat the bad guy and save the day. All that's missing is the nice little bow on top as the opening storyline concludes. It does feel a little like it could be a mini-series, with the story coming to a close here bar one dangling plot thread, but there's enough good work here (and little enough pornface) to justify this series sticking around past Infinity for a while at least.

    Comic Book Resources - Jim Johnson Nov 11, 2013

    "We're not really Avengers; more of an ad hoc team-up," states one character, which kind of sums up the whole lipstick-on-a-pig idea that this comic pushes. While these characters might be Avengers in name only, that's not to say it isn't a fun and entertaining team book. "Mighty Avengers" #3 shows that Ewing is up to the challenge he has put up for himself, and gives readers something decent to read while he continues to meet it. Read Full Review

    Nerds On The Rocks - MikeFitz538 Nov 7, 2013

    A good end to the first arc, and really, a reason for most of the members of the cast. Here, Blue Marvel, White Tiger, Power Man and Spider-Hero/Ronin/Blade all prove their worth and value. Land's art is ok and I do like the idea of a Spectrum & cage run Avengers teams. However, I'm not sure if it is quite the team dynamic that I would want to fully commit to the book. Read Full Review

    Multiversity Comics - Vince Ostrowski Nov 8, 2013

    It's such a shame that the story of this book has to be Greg Land's art, month in and month out, because Al Ewing is setting up one hell of a team. That said, Land's art has to be the story of any review, because it's just not effective in telling a story Read Full Review
