    Weekly Comic Book Review - Danny Wall Aug 31, 2014

    The Bottom Line: This issue is exactly what we needed when coming off of a big event, and the characters ring true although there's some question and tension about that which is sure to drive some of the subplots forward. It's more an issue about tone, from the fallout of our previous epic to the setup of the next. Unfortunately, the art could have used a dedicated inker/finisher to really smooth out more than a few rough areas. Read Full Review

    Now that Planet X is over and done with, Remender is gearing up for AXIS, which will tie intoUncanny Avengers and several other titles. So far, he has kept the stakes and energy of this book very high. I'm curious to see if the quality of the book can be maintained throughout this event. Since Remender is spearheading this one, maybe he can exert a bit more control overUncanny Avengers and keep it from getting lost in the event hype. Read Full Review

    IGN - Jesse Schedeen Aug 27, 2014

    The one area this issue makes a significant misstep in is its portrayal of Rogue. Remender has basically reverted Rogue to the state she was in 25 years ago. She's permanently absorbed another hero's memories and powers. Her own powers are out of control, and she's emotionally volatile as a result. It just seems depressingly circular to see her more recent character growth essentially wiped away. It would be like Cyclops abandoning his current status as mutant pariah so he could go back to being the do-gooder stick-in-the-mud always barking at the other X-Men to train in the Danger Room. Certainly, Remender deserves some benefit of the doubt, but I'm concerned about Rogue's future after this issue. Read Full Review

    Uncanny Avengers 23 may leave some readers disappointed in the absents of any action but we get some great character movements and development. It offers a satisfying transitional issue that builds upon some of the outcomes of the previous arc's climax, while syncing up the series with the rest of the universe in time for the next big cross over. I just hope Axis can match up to Remenders previous work in this series. Read Full Review

    Comic Spectrum - Shawn Hoklas Aug 31, 2014

    Ultimately, this issue fell short of the greatness the title has shown in the past for me. As we get closer and closer to the Axis event, it makes sense to have an issue like this that makes the reader care for these characters even more. Unfortunately, it misses that opportunity, and the art inside didn't meet this reader's expectations when compared with the art of the previous twenty-plus issues. Hopefully this will be a small letdown in what's been an overall fantastic series, as Remender and team attempt to right the ship with the start of the next big storyline. Read Full Review

    Rick Remender gives us a brief respite to set up the next chain of events, but it's a bit of a lame duck issue. Read Full Review
