    Only two issues into the new series and team so it is certainly not too late to jump aboard. My only fear is that Daniel Acuna wont remain on the book going forward; he has had a problem doing so in the past. Ill just keep my fingers crossed and dream fondly of Momma Kangaroo and her children. Read Full Review

    Weekly Comic Book Review - Danny Wall Mar 3, 2015

    I've often wondered what it would have been like to read Marvel Comics in the height of the Modern Age, when so much of what is now sacred continuity was being formed. What would it be like to have learned about Quicksilver and Scarlet Witch when the Whizzer claimed to be their father, and later to have it changed with revelations of Magneto. Perhaps it would have felt as roller-coastery as this new change of their status quo. But with distinct and moody art, raised stakes, and seemingly impossible odds, this issue's an engaging read with real momentum, despite it's problem of neglecting some characters as it's doing so.

    All-Comic - Milo Milton Jefferies Feb 27, 2015

    With its slow build and focus on certain characters, Uncanny Avengers #2 may put off those who are looking to read about their favourite characters that arent featured, but still this issue was good enough for that not to matter. The groundwork continues to be laid here and you really get the feeling that everything will come together eventually, and when it does, it will be an issue that you wont want to miss.

    While light on actual Avengers, Uncanny Avengers #2 boasts fantastic art and a darkly compelling villain. Read Full Review

    Even as many readers have started to follow writers more than artists, Daniel Acuna is a reminder that a great artist can really invigorate a title. And it's needed because Rick Remender's second stint on Uncanny Avengers has seen a bumpy start. Read Full Review

    Outright Geekery - Adam Normal Mar 1, 2015

    DanielAcua's art is Uncanny Avengers #2 is amazing and almost worth the price of admission all on its own. Unfortunately, Remender's unfocused and almost Avengers free script do not live up toAcua's work. At least the High Evolutionary had a pretty nice speech. Read Full Review

    Uncanny Avengers could be a really great comic. It has all the makings of one, for sure, and it also has a writer and artist behind it that is willing to push it into places that are unexpected and weird. That is why Uncanny Avengers #2 is disappointing. Instead of using the momentum from a solidly odd debut issue, Remender went with what was comfortable with diminishing returns. Instead of feeling like the new, fresh series that was promised, it feels like more of the same, wrapped in a great-looking package. A team book should function like a team book, instead of a book with seven leads that barely want anything to do with one another. We have seen these characters fractured, despondent and broken, but now it is time to make good on the idea that started all of this. Hopefully, in time, we can get there. Read Full Review
