    Still, a good script is a good script, and of all the issues of Young Avengers Presents so far, this is the one that's worth a read by those who aren't hardcore fans of the team. Read Full Review

    The Weekly Crisis - Kirk Warren Apr 2, 2008

    To be honest, it was good seeing these characters, but I don't know how essential this issue is. There is no new material and only a brief search for Wanda. I did like the story, but I can't think of any truely high points in it that would be worth mentioning. The art was serviceable, but I'm not sure when Hulkling took the steroids and is now as big as a room. Read Full Review

    Ultimately, I think Aguirre-Sacasa and Urusov really do the best with the thankless task they're given. It's tough, because with no continuing storyline from one issue to the next, there's a real lack of a hook to make you want to keep reading, and that was always one of the strongest points of "Young Avengers" with Heinberg and Jim Cheung on board. Here, you get to the end of the issue and it's by no means bad, but you really do wish that the characters could finally be free of the holding pattern they're stuck in. A pity, really. Both the title and all the creators involved really deserve much more. Read Full Review

    Comics Bulletin - Kelvin Green Apr 8, 2008

    So more wasted opportunities then. I don't know what's going on with the second Young Avengers series, whether Marvel is waiting for original writer Allan Heinberg to complete other commitments, or if there's something else going on behind the scenes, but much as I like the characters and concept, there's just no point at all in publishing this mini-series. With a stubborn refusal to develop the plots or characters, and an inability to come up with anything else to fill the gap, the resulting comics have read exactly like last-minute fill-ins or the dreaded Annuals. I really don't understand who Young Avengers Presents is for. Fans of the characters are not getting anything particularly new from the title, and I'm not sure what's gained from priming new readers when the main title remains in limbo with no sign of returning. Pointless. Read Full Review
