    The Bottom Line: This issue caps off the momentum that's been building in terms of both story and tone, resulting in epic levels of cosmic adventure. Kang proves to be a master villain, and there's something quite visceral in how he's taken down one-on-one by Havok. With that and the intriguing mix and use of other characters, Uncanny Avengers should really be the standard for team books to follow. Read Full Review

    Comics: The Gathering - F.D. White Jul 30, 2014

    We can already see how Uncanny Avengers is shaping the Marvel universe. With only three issues left to what I can assume will be a reflective arc to end this bombastic series we will see more changes. Take a breath now, readers. Enjoy this quiet victory. The Red Onslaught awaits us. Read Full Review

    IGN - Jesse Schedeen Jul 30, 2014

    On one hand, this finale issue is a bit disappointing in the sense that there's not a huge amount of finality to the conflict. Many plot elements are more shuffled to the side rather than definitively dealt with. But on the other hand, there are real, tangible consequences for many team members to deal with in the aftermath of the battle. Maybe time travel wiped away some of the character deaths we saw earlier in the series, but Remender replaces those twists with new and certainly better developments. Death is far less interesting than the troubles facing our heroes in the aftermath of "Avenger the Earth." And because of that, as well as the lack of finality in the conflict, I sincerely hope this series will have a life beyond AXIS this fall. There's too much juicy material to stop the Uncanny Avengers train now. Read Full Review

    Geeked Out Nation - Jay Bamberhil Jul 31, 2014

    Overall it's been a worthwhile series and the finale to the first 22 issues was gratifying. The thing I think I appreciated the most were the great character moments that happened in this midst of so much action. Great writers know how to make the real story happen during the action, but not necessarily be the action, and Remender accomplished just that in this issue. Read Full Review

    Uncanny Avengers might not match up to previous Rick Remender finales but it's still a great ending to an epic arc. It manages to tie up all the loose ends while leaving the door open for multiple future stories and some interesting changes for the Avengers Unity Team. Role of Axis. Read Full Review

    I am still lovingUncanny Avengersbut #22 was not as epic as I had hoped it'd be. With the conclusion, some lingering questions were answered and new questions arose. The Unity Squad will not have time to rest on their laurels, because Red Skull and the march to AXIS is upon us. Read Full Review

    "Avenge the Earth" ends with fire and mayhem - so why does this story feel like it ends not with a bang, but with a whimper? Read Full Review

    All-Comic - Derek Baker Jul 30, 2014

    Despite the letdown, this is still a very competent comic. Remenders Marvel epic is far from over and things should be getting even more exciting very soon. If you were upset by this issue, I wouldnt jump overboard just yet. Read Full Review

    PopMatters - Jack Fisher Aug 4, 2014

    That's not to say that there weren't meaningful moments. The concept and themes of this final battle were all present. They just lacked refinement and organization. There were some character moments, but they were painfully few and exceedingly underwhelming. Uncanny Avengers #22 had so much to work with. Too much was overlooked and too little was developed. While it didn't throw everything away, it didn't do nearly enough to make for a satisfying conclusion to the conflict. Read Full Review
