    The Secret Avengers are definitely in some hot water, and this issue does so well to heighten that fear. I'm definitely excited to see what the next issue brings. Read Full Review

    As I said in the last issue it is obvious which characters Remender is favouring but with the exception of Beast (who you would be forgiven for forgetting he's a member of the team since he's never bloody there yet they like to just leave throwaway lines to remind you that he is supposed to be there) everyone gets a fair time to shine.

    Unfortunately, the art quality takes a fairly significant hit compared to recent issues. Andy Kuhn's style isn't dissimilar to Matteo Scalera's, but it lacks the same sense of raw energy and expressiveness. Scalera was able to deliver pages that were loose but far from lacking in detail. Kuhn's work is burdened by a lack of fine detail and overly heavy line-work. Though Remender's scripting remains top-notch, it seems the visual presentation in this series will remain more sporadic.

    Without consistent art, Secret Avengers is going to continue to be a book that under-achieves and punches well below its weight class. With a writer like Rick Remender,and an incredible cast of interesting, and conflicting characters, this should be one ofthe best books every month. Instead, it's been a book that has seen too many artisticchanges that have prevented great scripts from reaching their full potential. Perhapsthe Marvel NOW! re-launch with curb the madness, but don't count on it. Despite mydisappointment with the artwork, this issue is still well-worth the cover price andthecrazy plot is more than worth your time. Read Full Review

    Comic Vine - Gregg Katzman Oct 24, 2012

    Overall, "Rise of the Descendants" is off to a solid start. Remender is diving the team to establish two drastically different plots that are sure to take this story down an intriguing path. Minor complaints about the artwork aside, the sharp humor, vivid coloring, character development and brief action sequence definitely make this worth checking out. Also, this serves as a good jumping on point, so don't be afraid if you've missed out on the previous issues. Read Full Review

    Remender does very well with this issue as a beginning to the end of his run on this book. As I highlighted, it's exciting to see him bring together so many plotlines and stories from across multiple titles into one grand finale. With the series relaunching in February, I think it's safe to say that everything that's been happening since issue #1 of this volume will be resolved, which is a huge plus for readers who have been around since the beginning.

    "Secret Avengers" #33 is a dark issue that leaves every character in peril by its end. Using a team of heroes amazing powers and abilities to travel such distances, Remender makes solid leaps in the narrative to bring a great amount of fun to the audience. If nothing else, just come to see Robo-Wasp backhand Hank Pym in his lab. Read Full Review

    As usual, the writing here is top notch, as we would expect from Remender. Art-wise? *shudder*'s pretty bad. Enough to knock it down a full point from a 9.0 in my book. I will say that I I LOVE the Valkyrie/Flash Thompson scenes.....ahhhh so good! Their romance is so perfect..especially with Remender coming off the Venom run having closed up the Flash/Betty thing. The plot with the Black Ant is incredible. He's a great villain. Scalera is solicited to finish up art on the series.....let's hope that happens cuz holy crap art was bad in this issue. I am so sad that Remender is leaving this title. Not as sad as his leaving Venom (that was one of the worst comic-related blows in recent memory), but still RRREAALLy sad.
