    Just plain fun. I was laughing and had a stupid smirk on my face the entire time. Only thing wrong with this issue is that it should have come out like 5 months ago. Read Full Review

    This is a great set-up for the continuation of the Secret Invasion. The hype and general idea is a lot of fun and thus far, Marvel and Bendis have done an excellent job setting up their next big event and this issue most certainly does not disappoint. With a regular schedule, great characters to work with and a great story, The Mighty Avengers should be well on its way to being Marvels #1 title. Read Full Review

    This issue of Mighty Avengers, then, is a fresh start for the book, and one which immediately shows a marked improvement. After a needlessly drawn-out first arc (with delays caused by Frank Cho's late artwork, which only exacerbated the situation), this second arc moves the Skrull storyline forwards, establishing a compelling atmosphere of paranoia and secrecy against which the symbiote-invasion storyline can play out, and which will also lay groundwork for this summer's Secret Invasion event. After considering dropping the book after the disappointing first six issues, I'm glad I hung around for this second arc. Read Full Review

    While it's nice to have an artist on this series that is more than capable of meeting deadlines, I'm not going to pretend I don't miss the sexy artistic stylings of Frank Cho. Until the alien symbiotes finally show up, Bagley's art never really stands out. Bagley was always better at drawing relatively realistic, down-to-earth heroes rather than iconic, muscular archetypes. The problem is that this series is staffed chiefly by the latter. It's hard to blame Marvel for wanting to get this series out on time for a change. I just hope that the eventual regular artist, if there ever is one, will manage to merge the best qualities of both Bagley and Cho and give this series a serious makeover. Until then, I'll continue to question why Mighty Avengers needs to exist at all. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Revolution - Rokk Krinn Jan 14, 2008

    Mighty Avengers #7 was pretty much a waste of paper and time. And due to Cho's inability to keep a monthly deadline, the next issue of Mighty Avengers is also going to be a waste. So far, this title has failed to do much to make me want to recommend that anyone spend their hard earned money on it. I'd definitely say that now is not the time to jump onto Mighty Avengers. Let the stale Venom symbiote story run its course and then maybe see if this title is worth picking up. Read Full Review
