Comic WatchAvengers #64 delivers on action and spectacle with a pleasant sprinkle of character-focused moments, giving this previously lethargic storyline a necessary boost of energy.
First Comics NewsAction-packed and epic in scope. Missed the multiversal Avengers Forever though. Decent art. Entertaining read.

Major SpoilersThe fact that this is part four of Aaron’s twelve-part final story makes the sheer number of things that happen in Avengers #64 feel a little bit abrupt, but well-handled dramatic moments abound, and the art is impressive throughout most of the issue, making for a better than average 3.5 out of 5 stars overall. The Joe-Bob totals so far include a Ghost Rider dead, another depowered, a fallen Deathlok, three dead Multiversal Masters, and one Stark covered in the blood of another, so fans of all-out battle should be satisfied, but I recommend this one to any Avengers fan looking for a big blowout.
The Comicbook DispatchAvengers #64 delivers the fourth part of this storyline, but it’s rather underwhelming. Yes, the comic delivers the big fight between Iron Man and the evil version of his father, Howard Stark, but the fight lacked strong emotional stakes since the Avengers have been on a winning streak against the Multiversal Masters of Evil, who similarly get taken down a little too quickly. However, the last few pages do end on the promise of the action getting ramped for the next part of the storyline.

ComicBook.comIf nothing else, The Avengers #64 previews what appears to be the saga's endgame as the Multiversal Masters of Evil are challenged on an ancient Earth; the final page suggests a conclusion is in sight. Beyond that sense of inevitability, there's little else in the issue to discern itself from the chaotic climax crossing over with Avengers Forever.
