Users who pulled this comic:


  1. Really do love Hickman’s Avengers but this is the Dogs-Bollocks!!!

  2. It’s crazy how much this series has improved. Didn’t like the first arc at all, but ever since this new arc began it has been fantastic. Reminiscent of Remender’s Uncanny X-Force run. Hopefully it continues to stay this good.

  3. Yep, since issue 5 this title has been on a roll. One of the best comics on the stands these days.

  4. The Redskavier arc is better when read all at once. Still not as amazing as this arc but definitely not bad.

    • Even when it was coming out I thought it was pretty decent, and it definitely helped to read issues 2 & 3 back to back, and then reread 3 right before 4 came out. Taken as standalone installments, I could see how people would have felt that things were weird and/or lacking. But when you step back and see what Remender was setting up and how his writing style has changed to accommodate and introduce the scope that this series has — it all make a lot more sense.

      I like these last few issues more, but the writing style actually hasn’t changed that much at all — it was pretty good in the first four issues. I think the constant spectre of a subpar Cassaday was (understandably) putting readers in a bad mood going in.

    • The biggest problem for the first arc was that the comic was so hyped and then delayed and delayed. Other Marvel Now titles had twice as many issues out as UA, which lead to even more discontent as they were viewing the plot development of UA relative to titles that were much farther along.

    • Hype, delay and a way-overboard backlash against Cassaday hurt the first arc. However re-read as a whole it’s incredibly solid.

      That said the crazy has been knocked up a notch this arc, and combined with Acuna turning in the best work of his career, this has really jumped up to being one of the top tier books at Marvel.

  5. This is the most awfulsome comic ever…I love it!

  6. I jumped on this book at issue #6 because it was about young Thor. Now I am in at least for this arc.

  7. Second arc makes this like an altogether different (and vastly superior) series.

  8. First was good can’t deny that, but since #5 this series has been on an excellent level with Remender’s greatness on Uncanny X-Force & at the moment every issue is just as good as the other.

    I am also really intrigued with #8AU tie-in coming up & having more Kang & the Apocalypse-Twins is certainly got me excited!

  9. This book is great. I’d recommend coming back if people didn’t like the John Cassaday issues. It’s as good as the uncanny x-force run.

  10. Ugh, this didn’t ship to my LCS this week. Sad day 🙁

  11. That was fucking awesome

  12. Terrific issue.

    With this arc being so closely tied to Uncanny X-Force, does anyone else have a feeling that Evan (Kid Apocalypse) will eventually factor into it?

  13. I feel like its uncanny xforce again and i love it!!!

  14. At last! A true Avengers book, with all of the grand threats, soap opera melodrama and epic action the title deserves.

    Welcome back, Earth’s Mightiest. You’ve been missed.

  15. I haven’t been picking up this book, due largely to the lukewarm reviews for the first arc and my lack of interest in AvX. But now it sounds like I need to jump on board.

    Question: How far back would you say I need to go? Issue 6?

    • I’m one of the few that thinks the entire run has been good so far. It’s only eight issues, so it’s not a huge expense to buy it all. Themes and events from issue one are being referenced constantly, so there’s probably a larger game afoot that’ll play out down the line. If you care about knowing all the details, I’d say start from the beginning.

      But if you want to jump into this current story, start with issue six.

    • Thanks for the insight, WheelHands!

  16. Great issue as always! I totally forgot just how powerful Sunfire is.

  17. Remender turned Fantomex into an A-list character with his run on “Uncanny X-Force.” I think he may do the same for Sunfire with this book.

  18. Having not really followed the events that preceded this series I find myself very confused by some of the dialogue in this arc. The art and story are really interesting but I guess I need some more context. Would reading the any/all of AvX help or do I need to go further back than that?

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

      I was told to go back and check out Remender’s run on Uncanny X-Force, which I’m a couple of volumes into right now. So far it’s proved worth it because 1) turns out his X-Force was pretty awesome, and 2) I’m already seeing some of the stuff that gets paid off in Uncanny Avengers. So check that out if you haven’t!

    • Thanks. I’ll check it out!
