  1. This should be a-m-a-z-i-n-g! Kind of curious as to what’s going on in that cover, it’s kinda freaky.

  2. Avenger week woohoo!!!!

    But this one at the moment just has the edge (sorry Mr. Hickman), also I am really loving Acuña’s art.

  3. comixfan comixfan says:

    I have really been enjoying this title. Can’t wait for this issue.

  4. kingjoeg kingjoeg says:

    Absolutely love this series.

  5. player1 player1 says:

    I’ve got a pile of these.

    Can’t wait to read a dozen in one sitting.

  6. kcekada says:

    Vast improvement over the first arc — both story and art. Can we just have Acuna on covers as well? Kinda hoping Polaris finds her way onto this team.

    Daniel is capable, but I’m unimpressed today. Sloppy. No…uninspiring. Rushed? Unfinished? It’s not terrible, but it’s not fucking fantastic either.

    I loved this issue! Uncanny Avengers is going from strength to strength. Loved the Wolverine in Bruce Lee duds and the big reveal at the end. I think evil Sentry may be the best use of the character I’ve seen, maybe he won’t cry as much this time. Really excited to see where this goes, Remender you magnificent bastard!

  9. WheelHands WheelHands says:

    Great issue. This book continues to be a delicious blend of epic cosmic ideas and ground level soap opera goodness. It’s everything I want from a superhero team book.

    My pick of the week. Well done, Remender. The Rogue/Wanda debate was gold. :)

    • WheelHands WheelHands says:

      Agreed. I really enjoy the way Remender uses the characters to address the readers’ concerns. And the choice to set it in the Danger Room so it wasn’t a boring talking heads scene was smart.

  11. Really love this book though, being new to comics within the last year, the backstory is lost on me. What should I read to understand the Twins motivation, what Wolverine did, etc.?

      You should read Rick Remender’s Uncanny X-Force, which he wrapped up right before launching Uncanny Avengers.

      Remender’s entire run on Uncanny X-Force was, quite frankly, phenomenal. But the storylines that are most relevant to what’s going on now in Uncanny Avengers are The Apocalypse Solution, The Dark Angel Saga (which is INCREDIBLE), and Final Execution.

    • JML (@twitter.com/JoshMLabelle) says:

      I second that recommendation. I picked up some of his X-Force run after being hellaciously confused a few issues back and it clarified a lot of stuff for me and was also just a damn fine read on its own merits.

    • Thank you both.

      UXF is probably my favorite comic book series of the last three years.

  12. phess1 phess1 says:

    I don’t know how many of you guys have listened to Yeezus but I think Kanye West made that album to be listened to while reading this arc.

  13. Another solid issue, I feel every time I read this it never seems like filler. Exactly the same as Remender’s run on Uncanny X-Force, so each issue makes you want more!

    Uncanny Avengers continues to blow me away. While reading this issue I said out loud, “this book is awesome.” The crab mounts got me. In so many ways it’s a successor to Uncanny X-Force which is great because that was an amazing run. Everything is well thought out and the characters so interesting.

    Perhaps the most impressive thing is how much content Remender and Acuna are packing into a page. This is a 20 page comic. It felt twice that length compared to some other books.
