    And, hey, if it wasn't there before this issue, I'll just take credit for whining about it enough in my other reviews for it to be finally answered by Marvel (because that would likely be why they included it, right?). Read Full Review

    Outer Realm Comics - Ellis J. Wells Jun 27, 2012

    A really well composed 3 part epic, which remains firmly rooted "at the gates of death" the entire time. Death haunts this story (and this arc); which is maybe a fitting metaphor conveying the destruction the Phoenix entity exudes. To the overall mega-plot of "Secret Avengers" this arc is probably utterly pointless (in-fact, based on "AvsX" so far, this story IS utterly pointless) BUT that doesn't stop it being great storytelling by a truly skilled writer. Against all odds, I really enjoyed this arc. Was it perfect? No. But despite some faults, it was still a wonderful story. Read Full Review

    Overall, Remender's one of my go-to scribes in the House of Ideas these days, and while I'm sad he's leaving Venom, Secret Avengers promises to keep up the good work. Read Full Review

    This storyline still vexes me somewhat in terms of the main event, but this issue has kept Secret Avengers in my pull list and has me very optimistic for what Remender can do with this book going forward. Read Full Review

    Remender loves to bring back long-forgotten elements from a character's history and make them shine again, which he does to wondrous effect with Ms. Marvel. She earns the standout moment of the issue -- although Captain Britain awkwardly enters the fray and takes the spotlight away in addition to her narration duties, but seeing how she was drafting a letter to Tony, I have zero idea how that happened. With such great writing dedicated to Ms. Marvel in this issue, it is a wonder why Remender didn't spread the love in his other effort this week, Venom #19. Read Full Review

    Marvel Disassembled - Kyle Mc Jun 21, 2012

    One thing I must say that whilst it is an improvement on some of the of the other issues the art maintains the streak of just being horrible and making any sort of facial expressions impossible to be taken seriously. Read Full Review

    It's not a bad issue, but it's a disappointment. As a conclusion, Remender acts as though this was a much longer, better established arc than it is, while the loss of Breitweiser's colours is a letdown. Read Full Review

    Though I still believe Rick Remender is saving this series, it was a huge mistake to bring Captain Marvel back. First of all, I don’t even know how he came back. They showed it in issue 26 but it made no sense to me. Also, is it just me or does issues 26-28 seriously contradict to what happens in Avengers 26-27? Usually I hate when Captain Marvel is “brought back” but this time around it wasn’t that bad
