    Nagging problems crop up everywhere in Mighty Avengers #11. If it sounds like I'm being hard on the book, bear in mind the rating I'm giving it correlates to a "Decent." And yes, there is an entertaining story buried somewhere here about a super-team facing down a very iconic villain. But there are so many things standing in the way of the story's overall effectiveness that it's hard to enjoy it without actively dumbing yourself down. Mighty Avengers is one of those books I really want to like, but it's teetered on the edge of quality for so long now and it's just frustrating to see it fall short. Read Full Review

    Weekly Comic Book Review - J. Montes Mar 26, 2008

    The issue is good. It's entertaining. But it's not great. In fact, most of it is forgettable. It's got gobs of action and nice bits of dialogue, but it's also more of the same stuff we've seen in the previous two issues. Only the conclusion and epilogue really stand out as memorable. Even Mark Bagley's art feels more rushed than usual. And if this is his last penciled Marvel comic (for now), then it's even more of a let down. I will say this, though: The second to last page serves as a hint of what we'll be seeing when the Skrulls finally unveil their plans next issue. Read Full Review

    The Weekly Crisis - Kirk Warren Mar 26, 2008

    All in all, this is an enjoyable read, but the thought bubbles mar just about every page. Doom has one page where literally half the page is one big continuous thought bubble. And while there were some funny and cool moments, the actual plot was pretty sub par and the arc, taken as a whole, was all over the place and there was never any clear threat or focus to the story.

    Comic Book Resources - Timothy Callahan Mar 26, 2008

    In "The Mighty Avengers," Bendis has created a potentially interesting mix of characters, but he hasn't done much with them yet. I hope "Secret Invasion" provides an opportunity for Ms. Marvel's overt Avengers to show how dynamic an interesting they can be. Because, as of issue #11, I'm not very impressed. Read Full Review

    Overall, the whole book is pretty lackluster and feels like everyone wants to get to Skrully type business. Hopefully the next issues are a little clearer in the plot line. Read Full Review
