    Great action that did a lot to endear these new heroes to me and I actually look forward to reading more about them in the future. Read Full Review

    Mighty Avengers #18 succeeds in being a neat Nick Fury and the new Howling Commandos story, but fails in being a quality Secret Invasion tie-in issue. I knew that having nothing but Secret Invasion tie-in issues on New Avengers and Mighty Avengers in store for us for all of 2008 would mean that we would get stories that paid less attention on the Avengers themselves. However, I have to admit that I am getting tired of purchasing Mighty Avengers and not getting a story that even tangentially deals with the Avengers. Read Full Review

    All in all, I'd call this another immensely disappointing and wholly unnecessary addition to the Secret Invasion story, one that not only added little to the narrative, but never really got around to entertaining me either. You can imagine how excited I am for part two. I'm about ready to stand up on my chair and scream at Bendis to get on with it already. Read Full Review

    It's frustrating, because I'm really happy to see Nick Fury return to the spotlight - he's one of my all-time favorite Marvel characters, and he was handled perfectly in the last issue of Secret Invasion. More of that, please, and less of this. Read Full Review

    As you can imagine, the end of the issue brings us up to current events in Secret Invasion – which is good. After this issue, I'd rather pass on the team's growing pains and just see them kick some butt. Great art, average story. Read Full Review

    Comics Bulletin - Mark J. Hayman Sep 16, 2008

    This business of torturing children for the "greater good," however, leaves exactly the bad taste in my mouth that it should. I get it, I really do, but it makes one curious as to what goes on inside the the heart and mind of a person who seems to revel in writing a story about such a sick, demented character as Fury has become in his hands. You know, the illustration was pushing this book as high as four on the bullet-o-meter, but there has to be a major deduction for making my skin crawl and my soul itch. In fact, you can go on and keep those residuals, I'd prefer to not be associated. Read Full Review
