    Weekly Comic Book Review - J. Montes Jun 24, 2008

    What makes this book excellent is that it shows how clever Brian Bendis is. The seeds he's planted over the past year are finally sprouting and as you can expect, there's a reason for everything. Each plot, no matter how throw away they've been (like that female Ultron storyline), suddenly becomes legitimate. This is another “connecting the dots” issue that clearly shows how Earth's Mightiest Heroes (and us readers) have been played for fools. It also finally answers the question if the real Ant-Man has always been the abusive husband or if his Skrull counterpart is. So is it worth picking up? Most definitely. The story is engaging and the art, pure Romita Jr. “goodness”. Read Full Review

    IGN - Dan Phillips Jun 25, 2008

    Not to beat a dead horse or anything, but it's worth pointing out one more time just how superior these Avengers tie-ins have been to the main Secret Invasion mini. By using his Avengers books to detail all the intimate, character-driven moments of his plot, Bendis has sucked a lot of the complexity out of his main title. On the other hand, he's made the two Avengers books the most entertaining superhero comics on the stands. I'm not sure whether this is good or bad. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Revolution - Rokk Krinn Jun 26, 2008

    Mighty Avengers #15 was a slightly better than average read. This was certainly one of the weaker Secret Invasion tie-in issues that I have read. And this issue bordered on being a simple time waster. And that is totally understandable as Secret Invasion itself is sure to be taking up plenty of Bendis' time and efforts. Still, I would not recommend wasting your hard earned money on Mighty Avengers #15. There is nothing that happens in this issue that will add to your experience over on Secret Invasion itself.

    Comics Bulletin - Mark J. Hayman Jun 24, 2008

    One day, hopefully not too long from today, I hope that Hank will be a hero again, even if no one will ever forget... well, you know. Presuming he's not already dead, which would really suck. For what it's worth, at least we know that it was really Hank who snapped that day and not an imposter. Meanwhile, routine also implies repetition; a repetitive, routine book earns a routine rating repetitively. Nothing to get into a lather or rinse about. Now go eat some bran. Read Full Review

    The Weekly Crisis - Kirk Warren Jun 26, 2008

    While the New Avengers issue was at least an enjoyable enough read if you checked your brain at the door or ignored the numerous mistakes, this Mighty issue features more Bendis hate on Hank Pym and treats the founding Avenger like a joke, similar almost to his Ultimates incarnation, and just makes the whole Skrull mess more annoying. All that was needed was to say he was replaced after House of M and before New Avengers. We didn't need any of the other padding on this issue. Read Full Review
