    It's funny how much better this comic was compared to New Avengers #53, which I reviewed a few nights ago. Comparing Dan Slott to Brian BENDIS is like comparing a thoroughbred horse to a rundown donkey! Dan depictions are just so dead-on, while BENDIS' are just all wrong. You can tell Dan was a fan of the Avengers with his knowledge of the team and the characters, while I seriously doubt BENDIS has EVER read an issue of the classic Avengers books. Read Full Review

    Art blip aside (and seriously, it's not a major one), another solid outing for Mighty Avengers. Dan Slott's Mightiest Also-Rans are quickly becoming the Avengers team to watch if you're concerned with quality and story, or just enjoy a proper superhero romp. Read Full Review

    Marvel Comics found another Leinil Francis Yu clone for the artwork. Im not sure why Marvel Comics seeks to replicate so closely the work of one artist, instead of branching out and allowing artists to be themselves. Yus work was different and thats why it was noted by so many. Having all those clones of him running around does service to no one. Readers arent idiots. Its not the real thing and Yus work is always on a tight line, being admirable at once, or totally annoying. Clones tend to fall into the annoying camp rather quickly. Read Full Review

    This issue sets up an almost certain throw down between the two teams next issue. In doing so, it also provides a bit of a breather from the frenetic pace "Mighty Avengers" has kept since Slott jumped on board. Even though Pym and crew are racing against the clock, this issue is a little more relaxed, allowing for some revealing character moments, such as Quicksilver's inner dialog during his conversation with Pym. Moments like that show Slott's sense of balance between the action Avengers should have and the finer character moments Marvel expects in its comics. This is Marvel's finest "Avengers" title, truly worthy of the brand. Read Full Review

    Plus, I mean, c'mon, if anyone deserves a wakeup call after the Invasion, my money's on Reed way more than poor Hank. Give 'em hell, Assemblers! Read Full Review

    Mighty Avengers #25 was a disappointing issue. I expect better out of Dan Slott. This was a poor excuse for a Fantastic Four/Avengers fight. Read Full Review

    Dan Slott has big plans to legitimize Pym, so they say, but constantly reinforcing his former issues with stability reallydoesn't seem like the best way to do it. Read Full Review

    So I feel its now time for everyone who ever liked Hank to stand up and be counted and say I am a Pym Pusher, and I'm giving Mighty Avengers #25 2 Stars out of 5. Read Full Review
