    SciFiPulse - Patrick Hayes May 5, 2012

    This is my favorite discovery of Marvel books. This is only the second crossover book I've read that should be read. This book shouldn't be a “secret” to anyone, and now it's not to me. Highest possible recommendation. Read Full Review

    A fantastic, epic sci-fi experience with stirring heroics in words and deed and truly brilliant artwork. Who'd have thought that a tie-in issue lacking both the regular artist and the regular cast could be so damned good? Read Full Review

    It's not perfect -- the art is bound to be divisive and the story seems to veer sharply away from the task of stopping Phoenix in the latter half -- but if all tie-ins were this good, no-one would complain about buying more books to follow the story. Read Full Review

    All things considered, this was a pretty good issue. This might just turn out to be the finest of the tie-ins on the Avengers side. Read Full Review

    If you're already reading Secret Avengers there's no reason not to pick up this issue, especially if you're a fan of some certain Kree characters. Also, whether or not you're reading the AvX event, this comic is one that I'd recommend, especially if you're looking for a nice bit of cosmic action for the next few months. Read Full Review

    I was very nervous for this arc; Remender hasn't thrilled me with both his "Venom" tie-in arcs, and naturally assumed the same would be true here... but actually I really enjoyed both the issue AND the team assembled. I really liked Thor as leader; and the cast have a good dynamic (enough tension and comradery to make interactions interesting). I look forward to next issue. Read Full Review

    IGN - Joshua Yehl Apr 25, 2012

    The art style used by Renato Guedes has me on the fence. On one hand, his sense of detail is admirable and he gives an unfiltered look at these events. But I can't help but think some of his characters come out looking, well, ugly. This is not a dig at Guedes, but he draws with such honesty that he leaves behind the glamorous side of superheroes in favor of hard looks and lean bodies. Take that for what you will, but even though it is off-putting at first, it had grown on me by the end. Read Full Review

    I'm torn on this one. I don't like space stories. I don't like that a great "Secret Avengers" meta-plot has been sidelined in favours of this tie-in (which, seemingly, will have ZERO relevance once the event is over). And some moments felt sloppy. BUT... I can't help but enjoy this issue. Remender is an expert story teller; making compelling characters and situations; regardless of who he's using. So while the concept is faulty, the execution is not. Remender writes an excellent Thor! Read Full Review
