    I'm excited to see how these mysteries play out in the final part of Remender's first arc as writer of the series and how it might play out in the long term if some of these things turn out to be real. Read Full Review

    Outer Realm Comics - Ellis J. Wells Mar 30, 2012

    I'm really loving this first arc, exploring the Descendants, the strange relationship "Father" has with all those who follow him; the use of a vast ensemble. It's ticking all the boxes. My only gripe is I'm still not 100% clear on who is a "robot/cyborg/clone/fake" and who is real. Is Lady Deathstrike THE Lady Deathstrike??? Is that Wasp's body, or just a cyborg? Is the LMD of Nick Fury the SAME LMD that formed the Masters of Evil? Little helpful "info boxes" (which are standard practice in comics) would be helpful, with such a vast array of characters packed into one issue. Read Full Review

    Newsarama - George Marston Apr 5, 2012

    The story is compelling, the villains are strange, and the art from Gabriel Hardman and Bettie Breitweiser is basically flawless. This book hasn't stopped finding it's way to the top of the stack every month, and under Rick Remender's direction, it looks to be climbing there a little faster yet. Read Full Review

    Still the artwork complements the story and as the book enters the final issue of this arc, it's clear that Remender has something special brewing. Read Full Review

    I don't often comment on covers but I want to give a shout out to Arthur Adams and Laura Martin for one of the most visually engaging superhero covers I've seen in awhile. Read Full Review

    Secret Avengers #24 is the run's weak point thus far, but even then it's a far cry from mediocrity. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Resources - Doug Zawisza Apr 2, 2012

    "Secret Avengers" #24 is full of splendid comic book moments, with nods to the David Michelinie-era Avengers, the satellite Justice League and various stories between and since. The end result is a story that feels like an homage to the great comics of yesteryear, but carries a modern sensibility in pacing, plot and action. "Secret Avengers" shouldn't be a secret to anyone: it's a fun, daring Avengers title that is chock-full of surprising moments and fun characters. Read Full Review

    Chuck's Comic Of The Day - Chuck Apr 9, 2012

    The issue just seems to be trying too hard to keep us in the dark, and as a result it's difficult to care too much about the whole thing. Hopefully the next issue (out this week) will clear things up as we careen toward the whole Avengers vs. X-Men thing. Read Full Review

    The action is brought up a notch as The Secret Avengers are pushed to their limits by The Father & his Descendants. Will Beast suffer the same fate as Ant-Man? How long can Flash Thompson ignore the Venom symbiote in order to assist his fallen comrades? Written by Rick Remender & illustrated by Gabriel Hardman. From Marvel Comics. Read Full Review

    I guess the real question here is this; was that the Eric O' Grady Ant-Man, or was that Hank Pym, come to help the team as the cavalry? Other than that though? There's nothing happening here that I am the least bit interested in. Hawkeye's been written as a terrible leader, the story isn't doing anything for me, there's just nothing here I can point at and say, “THIS is why you should be reading this series!” I guess I'll just move on...
