    Blue Raven Comics - Eric Scroggs Jun 22, 2012

    Mike Deodato's art is perfect for a story like this, with his detailed and shadowy renderings of ancient and modern characters alike. He and Bendis are just the right team for this book and it will be a shame when the time comes for their collaboration on these characters to end. I give this issue a giant, flaming 10/10 Read Full Review

    I don't know that this is vital to the enjoyment of the AvX series, but on its own it's a beautiful comic - a genuine work of art. Read Full Review

    Bendis and Mike Deodato score big with me on this arc. It's not overwrought or groundbreaking for the sake of being groundbreaking. It just simply worked. Read Full Review

    Marvel Disassembled - Kyle Mc Jun 21, 2012

    My favourite part is as it is drawing to a close as it incorporates parts of Dan Slott's run on Amazing Spider-Man into the rest of the MARVEL universe as he is handled well. My only worry is that the same thing that made Ends of the Earth suffer will rear its head again here. Read Full Review

    The combination of quieter moments and a tighter cast really helps to make this issue of "New Avengers" shine. This isn't the Earth-shattering reveal of the Phoenix Five, nor is it the final confrontation between X-Men and Avengers, but this issue does seem as though it may contain one of the critical turning points in the course of the "Avengers Vs. X-Men" story as well as in the development of Hope Summers. Bendis and Deodato addressed the mandate of tying their tale into the larger story and did so with a comic that is fun. Read Full Review

    IGN - Joshua Yehl Jun 20, 2012

    As with any tie-in to a big event, the issue struggles to find something exciting to divulge; we all know that the anything worth caring about will go down in the main Avengers vs. X-Men event. Bendis does offer up some nice character work, but his attempt to join the mythos of the Iron Fist with the Phoenix comes off more confusing than informative. Destroy or create still seem to be the only options for the Phoenix. Jean Grey destroyed, so what will befall Hope if she takes the other path? Read Full Review

    Outer Realm Comics - DeShawn Jun 23, 2012

    Definitely giving it points for being a fairly accurate Avengers cover for once. It's pretty generic as a whole though, but at least he manages to make Fongji look epic as ever. Read Full Review
