    Weekly Comic Book Review - J. Montes Mar 16, 2008

    It's so obvious that the creative team had fun with this throwback to the 1970s. From the faux old school coloring job to the Marvel in-house advertisements on the bottom of each page, the team strives to make you feel like you're back in the early days of the Marvel Universe. It doesn't hurt either that Mark Bagley's style is old school Marvel bullpen influenced, either. Even the opening splash page screams of early Bronze Age goodness. Do yourself a favor and pick up this issue. It's hands down, the best issue of Mighty Avengers yet. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Resources - James Hunt Mar 29, 2008

    In fact, between recent "Mighty Avengers" and "Amazing Spider-Man" issues, it's like someone, somewhere appears to have realized that pacing a comic for the trade is just one way of doing it. Could the shift back towards satisfying, single-issue stories be happening right now? Either way, this month's "Mighty Avengers" is a ridiculously fun comic, contrasting well with the current depressive state of the "New Avengers" title. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Revolution - Rokk Krinn Mar 17, 2008

    Mighty Avengers #10 was an enjoyable read. I can only hope that Bendis manages to keep this title rolling in order to make up for the plodding, pointless and dull read that we get each and every month on New Avengers. However, Mighty Avengers still isn't good enough for me to recommend it to any comic book reader. This title will probably only appeal to comic book readers who like action over drama and don't mind a read that is a bit thin. Read Full Review

    IGN - Jesse Schedeen Mar 12, 2008

    Overall, I'm not liking the direction this series is headed in. The worst part is that the ending of this issue only ensures that yet another massive shakeup will occur next month. I'm keeping my fingers crossed that Secret Invasion will dictate the folding of both Avengers books back into one, because little about Mighty Avengers is justifying its continued existence.

    The Weekly Crisis - Kirk Warren Mar 12, 2008

    Finally, Bendis continues his ADD-style plot in this book as the issue ends with Doom mysteriously disappearing, Ms Marvel rushing in screaming for Sentry and Iron Man to get away and then Doom's castle being nuked. Actually, maybe this was Iron Man's satellite strike he was readying before they were blasted into the past. Would kind of make sense now that I think about. Still, Bendis seems to have a hate on for Tony. First Ultron-izing him and now nuking him. I assume he'll have similar treatment in Secret Invasion. Read Full Review

    Comics Bulletin - David Wallace/Kelvin Green Mar 11, 2008

    Kelvin: It's certainly better than the last issue I read, which was some nonsense with an alien dog and Bendis trying to pass off the Wasp's growing powers as his idea, but he's still quite transparently not right for the Avengers, and it baffles me that Marvel haven't yet given this title to someone like Jeff Parker. Heck, keep Bendis' name on it for those all-important sales, and have Parker ghost-write the book so that it's actually good, and everyone would be happy! Read Full Review
