•  The dark path to AVENGERS & X-MEN: AXIS starts here. An event two years in the making!
•  The Red Skull and his S-Men have already begun the great vanishing, The Uncanny Avengers are too late.
•  Havok witnesses the Skull's greatest atrocity yet.
•  Magneto vs Red Skull blood match that will result in a terribly altered Marvel Universe.

    Comics: The Gathering - F.D. White Oct 1, 2014

    Uncanny Avengers has been an absolute thrill to read from start to finish. Even though this is the end, it's also the start of something much, much bigger. Read Full Review

    Pop Culture Uncovered - Alex K Oct 2, 2014

    I was glad to see Daniel Acuna return on art. Last month's fill-in did a good job, but his entire series feels like its been most impacted by Acuna's dark scenery and style. In a mutant internment camp and with a large cast of heroes and villains, Acuna paints a disgustingly beautiful scene and a truly terrifying last-page reveal. While it may seem to slow in some issues, Uncanny Avengers 25 reminds me why I'm still invested in the story of the Unity Squad and sets the state for an exciting event. Read Full Review

    Unleash The Fanboy - John McCubbin Oct 2, 2014

    Uncanny Avengers has been doing a great job of setting up Axis, with this issue having me even more excited for next week. The Magneto focused tale also allows for a very emotional, and symbolic look into what's to come, with it having an intense climax. Highly recommended. Read Full Review

    We The Nerdy - Justin Micallef Oct 2, 2014

    While this book serves as a great piece to the larger puzzle of Axis, I'd still wish that we had a proper closing to this book on it's own, if only for those who are going to read this in omnibus or trade format. I hope this isn't the last time we see the Avengers Unity Squad, as these past 25 issues have been a complete treat and the only complaint I can have is that I constantly clamor for more.

    Weekly Comic Book Review - Danny Wall Oct 2, 2014

    It's an effective book" full of drama, tension, and portent. Thanks to the moody and expressive art, which is nearly perfect in its sequential storytelling, and characters making unfortunate (but narratively resonant) decisions, this issue makes for a rich reading experience with a tantalizing momentum/cliffhanger. The full experience may rely a bit too heavily on readers' prior knowledge of Marvel history, unfortunately, although that has been a feature of Uncanny Avengers from the beginning. Read Full Review

    Comics Bulletin - Lance Paul Oct 7, 2014

    Were also shown a glimpse of the scars still left on the Scarlett Witch by her fathers power, the mix of adoration and fear helps to understand the pain she suffers from. Another final treat toUAis the return of Acunas pencils, his final battle between the Red Skull and Magneto is something of nerd fantasies! While this final issue in theM2Astands as one of the best,the realist in mestill went looking up at just how much of a landmark run this was. Read Full Review

    IGN - Jesse Schedeen Oct 2, 2014

    We can only hope Remender has continued plans for these characters, as AXIS alone clearly won't be enough to wrap up every dangling thread left from the past two years. But for now, this issue serves as a solid lead-in to the latest and most high-profile segment of the Uncanny Avengers saga. Read Full Review

    Entertainment Fuse - Jim Bush Oct 4, 2014

    Im still unsure if Avengers & X-Men: Axis will be a good event. Although I enjoyed Infinity, Ive found many of Marvels other events recently uninteresting. I have hope that Remender, a writer who usually takes chances and surprising turns, will make it a good series. If you are planning on gettingAxis, Id recommend reading Uncanny Avengers #25 first. Its a good issue that sets the stage for whats to come next. Read Full Review
