SECRET INVASION TIE-IN! The Sentry is the most powerful being in the universe. If the Skrulls are to dominate the planet then they need to eliminate the man with the power of a thousand exploding suns. The only question is how?!

    Mighty Avengers #14 was another excellent Secret Invasion tie-in issue. The joy of Secret Invasion continues to be the back-story and build up to the event rather than the event itself. With this big event the journey is truly more compelling than the destination. Even if you are summarily unimpressed with what Bendis is giving us on Secret Invasion itself, I would still recommend giving Mighty Avengers #14 a try. These tie-in issues are well crafted and balanced reads. Read Full Review

    Unfortunately, though, it hasn't been possible to make all of these issues stand alone on their own terms, and this issue feels more like a footnote or appendix to the main event than it does a story in its own right. Read Full Review

    The inexplicable attention to him (and strange "twist" ending) leads me to believe that the Sentry is destined to play a bigger role in the event later, but him being a superpowered deus ex machina is rarely satisfying in the way writers seem to think it is. Truthfully, the issue does carry a sense of existing a vehicle to get the character into position for a larger concept down the road (especially because it's not the first time we've seen that flashback sequence in the pages of an Avengers book), I'm just not convinced by Mighty #14 that it's going to be especially interesting. It's become increasingly apparent to me that the Sentry works best in small doses and is not a strong enough concept to support a worthwhile story on his own. This issue doesn't hurt my argument.

    Weekly Comic Book Review - J. Montes May 19, 2008

    Guest penciling the book this month is Khoi Pham, whose recent work in The Incredible Hercules has been nothing less than brilliant. Here in this book, his art feels more domestic and less exciting (sad to say). But I can hardly fault the guy, he makes The Sentry look like a complete wuss. And he is a wuss. Does that make this good storytelling? Only if you're trying to make me hate The Sentry even more. Put this artist back where he belongs. Read Full Review
