Here at last, because you demanded it, the ultimate battle begins: Spider-Man versus the Avengers!
Thrill to the action! Marvel at the wit! Ponder at the possibilities!
In a frantic race across Manhattan, someone’s mind is being controlled, someone’s decisions are being directed and someone’s reality is being altered… but whose?
First Comics NewsThese are the reactions I have after reading this issue- WOW!!! AWESOME!! AMAZING!! SIMPLY BRILLIANT!! I always knew this battle could never happen but here we are- The Avengers vs…The Amazing Spider-Man! It seems that everyone’s Friendly Neighborhood Wall-Crawler is being manipulated and The Avengers have to stop him; Right away Spidey makes Earth’s Mightiest Heroes look like chumps as he takes them down one by one (I was shocked); This is a great homage to those classic silver age stories and by far the best issue to come out of this series, even Greg Land’s art comes off as looking stylish. Darek Landry has been surprising the readers who buy this title as this one is an absolute hit. If you want to see Spider-Man at his best then by all means, check this issue out.
You Don't Read ComicsThe final twist is the big set-up for the next mini-series. Given the villain involved in the next series, it’s difficult to imagine it being nearly as much fun as All-Out Avengers has been. The villain in question has been kind of a problem ever since he debuted back in 1984. With the right direction, it could really turn into something. Landy’s done a good job with this series. Hopefully, he can do something similar with the next one.
The Super Powered FancastThe Story: A fun and cool story from Landy. While the stakes continue to be a great mystery and the premise continues to be engaging, this issue adds some fun elements to the story that kept me entertained from the first panel to the last. I continue to enjoy every revelation made in this series and this issue particularly and the last few pages with just Captain America talking to the unseen narrator and nailing who he really is are fantastic. I cannot wait for the next issue. The Art: Land delivers some bright, beautifully detailed and visually thrilling art throughout the issue. The imagery is alive and energetic with great moments for every character.
Marvel Heroes LibraryThis is the end of this series. Judging by the covers and solicitations, February's #6 has become March's Avengers Beyond #1. And the solicitation confirms that Cap's deduction is correct. But the question remains is the Beyonder the villain of the piece, or the guy trying to help them fight the real villain?
ComicBook.comThere are some concepts that function in dialogue but flop within panels. Beyond some excellent quipping and a final reveal that plays on Captain America's natural earnestness and directness, it's clear that All-Out Avengers was a vehicle for an artist incapable of supporting the action it provided.
