    Avengers #65 continues to show that there isn't a comic as epic today. In one issue, we see the rise of the Avenger Prime. That's at first unbelievable, but once told, you realize it's a natural development of the Avenger's greatest villain. The famous phrase, "You either die a hero or live long enough to see yourself become the villain," is at work here, only in reverse. How incredibly apt and cool.

    Avengers #65 tells a familiar story of a villain who searches for meaning in the aftermath of his ultimate victory, executing the trope with enough unique flare to make for an engaging tale.

    Very cool learning more about Avenger Prime and how that fits into the current event storyline. Solid cliffhanger. Ok art.

    Avengers #65 delivers readers the tale of how Avengers Prime came to be who he is. While the artwork and colors were good as usual, the story was very lacking. The origin story of this version of Loki is good on paper, but it wasn't pulled off in its execution. Overall, the comic was not as thrilling or compelling as it could've been. But hopefully the next part of this story will show this Loki in action.

    The Avengers #65 steps away from the sprawling conflict of "Avengers Assemble" to provide readers with an origin story of the mysterious Avenger Prime – revealed recently to be a variant of Loki. It plays like a classic "What If…" issue of Marvel Comics with a single significant change in Loki's childhood holding untold, ongoing ramifications that shifts him to being the centerpiece of the multiversal Avengers. Despite the magnitude of these changes and all of the accompanying splash panels, it also plays out with the same impact as a "What If…" as this Loki's story is entirely detached from any form of significant stakes.
