    Readers will continue to find what they enjoyed about this team from the previous four issues well-represented here. Minor issues in art and a certain member of the team not living up to his name won't stop Uncanny Avengers from being worthy of your time. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Herald - Matt Lehn Jun 27, 2015

    In another era, this short-run volume would be labelled as a "Limited Series". Furthermore, it probably should be packaged as Quicksilver and Scarlet Witch solo title. With the exception of the Vision and his somewhat forced "romance", the Avengers are set dressing and incidental at best- particularly the dwindling mutant faction. Read Full Review

    Weekly Comic Book Review - Danny Wall Jun 25, 2015

    For an all-out battle finale, this issue offers a more intense look at the Scarlet Witch and Quicksilver, with a large side helping of the Vision, bringing out some themes of family and personal responsibility. Unfortunately, as usual, that means the rest of the cast gets short shrift, as plot points are never really introduced nor resolved; they just sort of happen. The art, similarly, contains some poignant moments in between all the rushed ones, resulting in a pleasant read after the first experience but with increasingly diminished returns as you think about it.

    Yet Another Media Site - Kevin Finnigan Jun 25, 2015

    Daniel Acua continues to knock it out of the park on artwork. The battle scenes feel chaotic and on a scale that only this team can tackle. Quicksilver's powers haven't looked this great in a while. With Doctor Strange getting a new ongoing, maybe we can get a Brother Voodoo ongoing/mini-series with Acua on pencils. Voodoo has looked fantastic this entire volume under Acua, and his mystical powers have such an eerie sense to them. The direct colors of Acua really accentuate the strangeness of them.

    PopMatters - Jack Fisher Jul 7, 2015

    As a whole, Uncanny Avengers #5 gives the overall arc the bare minimum it needs to feel complete. If it were a term paper in college, it would get a C-minus at best. It addresses the primary issues, but offers little else. Anyone looking for added value should stick to the dollar menu at the McDonald's. Anyone looking for additional development into the struggles of Quicksilver and the Scarlet Witch will get exactly what they pay for. Read Full Review
