The FALL OF X calls for the return of the Avengers' Unity Squad! Innocent people and world leaders are dead after simultaneous attacks on the U.S. and Krakoan governments, and that means one thing: It's time for a new squad of Avengers. False-flag attacks meant to whip up anti-mutant hysteria are unfolding, and hey, some of Steve Rogers' best friends are mutants. Your new unity squad is: Captain America, Rogue, Deadpool, Quicksilver, Psylocke and Monet. They must solve the mystery of who the new, murderous Captain Krakoa is - and stop his team of killers from igniting the fires of a new world war. PLUS: A bonus page written by Jonathan Hickma more

    Fans of the X-Men and Avengers will enjoy every second of Uncanny Avengers. It balances character and action with a heroes-at-war angle that suits the dark time Marvel's mutants are in. This is great adrenaline-charged superhero comics. Read Full Review

    In the wake of ORCHISs terrorist attack on the X-Men, and their Avengers allies, Captain America reforms the Unity Squad, with Quicksilver, Rogue, Gambit, M and Psylocke, and they take their fight to the frontlines, getting ready to do battle with the all new, all deadly Mutant Liberation Front. Can they save the world, and in turn themselves? Duggans continuing his winning streak after a really great opening salvo in the Fall of X. The team wastes no time in getting set up, and he keeps the book going at a breakneck pace. Hopefully the ending lands at the same quality as the opening shot, because Avengers and X-Men fans can rejoice over this killer team. Read Full Review

    I have not been reading any of the Fall of X story. I was concerned going into this book that I would be lost and have a hard time following the story. However, between the summary at the beginning of the issue and excellent writing throughout, I was never lost. I found myself wanting to pick up other X titles and catch up on everything. That is what you want, you want a story to grab you and want more. I'm very happy to have read this issue and I cannot wait to see where the story goes from here! Do yourself a favor and don't miss out on this one. Even if you're behind on the mutants in the Marvel Universe. Read Full Review

    COMICON - Scott Redmond Aug 22, 2023

    As the ‘Fall Of X' continues a familiar but different team rises as the ‘Uncanny Avengers' follow the adage of see a fascist, and punch a fascist. A very dark but also hopeful and action-packed series that once again thankfully puts mutants and other heroes on the same page against the forces of evil. Read Full Review

    You Don't Read Comics - Russ Bickerstaff Sep 12, 2023

    Duggan and company manage a very cleverly-modulated first issue. Its remarkable how much the creative team manages to cram into a single book without making it feel cluttered. Its really only 38 pages or so, but it feels spacious and well-executed enough that they could have actually filled a few issues. Theres a sharp slickness about it all that feels like its. Going in a fresh direction for everyone involved. The themes being covered have been around in X-books for decades, but Duggan and company are giving it fresh life in a new series.  Read Full Review

    Garron's work is, for the most part, pretty extraordinary in Uncanny Avengers #1, elevated with some help from colorist Morry Hollowell. Read Full Review

    Razorfine - Alan Rapp Aug 22, 2023

    There's not enough here to likely make me stay with the comic for more than an issue or two. However, despite the hodgepodge nature of the group (did someone at Marvel simply draw character names out of a hat?), the comic does have its moments such as Captain America stating his case against conspiracy whackjob fascists (whose hateful rhetoric is sadly all too timely in today's world).

    Great premise, great story, and great art. I like the "consequences-of-actions" and sense of danger that has been returned to the X-Men/mutants post-Krakoan resurrections (e.g. the fact that Psylocke and Penance are introduced as hit-and-run mutant partisans makes sense now that the odds are stacked against them and fatal mistakes they make can't be corrected through resurrection).

    Overall...Great Start!

    Absolutely amazing. Even if I'm not currently following the mutants series, Duggan managed to perfectly tell a great story with all the references. Let's see who this new Captain Krakoa is!

    I thought this was a pretty good start to this miniseries. I've been reading Duggan's X-Men run since it started and I've always like the concept of Captain Krakoa. Here, I will say that I'm very interested to find out who this new person that's taken up the mantle is. As for the Unity Squad, I must admit that I wasn't incredibly interested by the line-up when I first saw it. However, I do like the team after reading this. Deadpool's my favorite comic character, so him being here definitely helped and he was fun here. Steve Rogers is always a great leader and I think he's the perfect leader here. Those two are the highlights for me, but I also generally like everyone else, although I don't know much about Penance. Moving back to the story i more

    I liked the FCBD det up issue better, but it has some promise. I like the Captain Krakoa stuff. It just felt like it was a little generic.

    After seeing the atrocities committed by Orchi first-hand, Captain America goes on a recruiting mission to form a new Unity Squad in this week’s UNCANNY AVENGERS #1 by Gerry Duggan and Javier Garrón. I was actually surprised at how much this book complements the work Duggan is doing in the main X-Men title, so much so that we see the two teams meet-up for a strategy session. I can see some interesting cross-over potential between the two books in the future and if it means we somehow get a Psylock, Monet, & Shadowkat trio I would gladly take it! But I digress…

    Duggan’s script was a lot stronger in the first half of the issue compared to the second half. There was a lot of exposition early on that gave a succinct and impor more
