Users who pulled this comic:


  1. I think it is a shame that this title is being taken over by AvX so early into Remender’s run, especially as Uncanny X-Force seem to be exempt.
    I would have loved to have seen a UXF vs Secret Avengers tie-in, maybe with both teams independently going stealth on each other… a tactical encounter where the two squads dance around under each others radar, perhaps bringing some continuity between Captain Britain’s recent feature in UXF and joining Secret Avengers.

  2. Now see, I’m excited for this divergence. It let’s them tell a tie-in story that’s still separate from the main thing, focusing on the characters they want to focus on.

    Also, that first Remender arc did very little for me. Hoping that this is a bit better.

  3. No venom or Gabriel Hardman 🙁 Gonna come back to this title after the AvX tie-ins are over.

  4. Yes, I also quit this book. Remender’s first arc did not convince me that I want to spend $4 a month on another Avengers title.

  5. Has anyone else seen the preview art with Beast looking all not cat-like?

  6. I’m subscribing to this title, so I get it monthly, but pay for it in yearly chunks.

    The deep discount on price softens the blow whenever minor quibbles arise.

  7. Phoenix is coming and the Secret Avengers have a tiny base in space. That’s more than enough concept for a great comic book.

  8. This is one of three Marvel books I read monthly (Fantastic Four, FF and Uncanny X-Force I read in trades). This is the only AvX book I’m reading in issues.

  9. I’m going to miss seeing Carol Danvers as Ms. Marvel. Not really feelig the new Captain Marvel look — which seems influenced by MircaleMan/Marvelman instead of Captain Marvel.

  10. The only reason I am picking this up is for the cross over, I have not been part of this ride so I hope this issue is good.


  11. This was the most essential read of any of the side-stories in AVX so far. I’ve never read anything by Guedes before but the art in this was GORGEOUS. I think Remender has the best luck in artists, and rightfully so, because I really enjoyed the story and dialogue. Beast verbally bitch-slapping Brian in particular, was a highlight.

    I was however curious why Beast was drawn back in his old state and not his current Cat-like form. Perhaps an oversight by Guedes. I’m also not very well versed in Kree/Captain Marvel stories so I may need some research to aid me through it, but even without, I’d say this was read well and looked good enough to be my POTW.

  12. I almost enjoyed the art. I enjoyed the story MUCH more than the last arc. I do however think that this title is important to the flow of AvX. With what occurred and it’s impact and explanation on the overall storyline, this is a must read.

  13. First time I have see Renato Guedes’ work, really enjoyed his work on this issue. Especially the alien landscapes.

    I’m loving Captain Britain’s involvement in this title, Remender has got him spot on so far… the peer pressure from Thor, flying off during the mission, getting some home truths from Hank… I’m hoping this is all leading to Brian stepping up in future arcs.

  14. Started reading this book cause I’m a Moon Knight fan, but was really digging the Steve Rogers take. Now, since Remender took over, not finding much worthwhile with it and dropping it soon.

  15. Bought this for the cross over, that is all. I did like the druken Thor and his little Thor-ette trying to get eveyone to have a drink before the big battle. Was kinda out of left field however; it really made sense being who he is and where he is from.


  16. Secret Avengers #26 was a strange bird (no pun intended.) By itself it was a nice story, but as part of the overall crossover it had inconsistencies. Half of the team had nothing to do, and the art was distracting as in taking attention away from the story.
