Avengers #684 Reviews

Avengers #684, the return of Bruce Banner as the Hulk, arrived in comic shops this week. Let’s see what reviewers thought of this over-sized rampaging issue!

Adventures In Poor Taste: 9/10 “It’s easily the best issue of No Surrender, and it’s hard to imagine anything topping it. It’s the most artful advertisement you’ll ever see, with true emotion and artistry combining for a powerful tale.”

Caped-Joel: 8.5/10 “This tenth part is actually a good place to hop on if you haven’t already…Very satisfying.”

Comic Book.com: 8/10 “Both parts of the story are well executed, and the former dovetails nicely into the latter as No Surrender continues to escalate in exciting ways.”

Comic Book Corner: 9/10 “There’s a great balance this series…It’s one of the best events that Marvel has done in some time and it’s weekly!”

Comic Book University: Grade: A+ (Pick of the Week) “This was wicked…One of the coolest pages I have ever seen in the history of comic books.”

Comic-Watch: 9/10 “This story is a blast and so much fun. I never know what to expect each week. My only fear thus far is when the story ends, the ride will be over.”

Comicsverse: 8.3/10 “Ewing, Zub, and Waid deliver fine storytelling as Hulk returns from the dead. The artwork is solid as well, with piercing drawings and popping colors. This is an excellent setup issue for future intensity in Avengers: No Surrender.”

Comicosity: 9.5/10 “Writers Jim Zub, Al Ewing, and Mark Waid begin to bring No Surrender to a logical conclusion, and have a bunch of characters to check in with across the issue. They do an admirable job, giving a number of the Avengers a chance to shine while emphasizing the breadth of the team as all factions attempt to converge on the Avengers Auxiliary Headquarters.”

Detail Comics: “This is probably one of the best parts of Avengers: No Surrender that’s come out so far.”

Diskingdom: 8/10 “Another great issue from this story arc and all the build up to this series is starting to pay off as the newest character, Voyager, is coming into her own and the addition of the Hulk is a great move, since it delivers a much more simpler focus.”

Do You Even Comic Book: 10/10 “The creative team behind this issue is rather large, three writers and six artists alone. You’d think that’d be too many cooks in the kitchen. You’d be wrong, thankfully. This issue flows so seamlessly, you’d never know so many people brought this together.”

Fortress of Solitude: 9.5/10 “A roller coaster of revelations…I’m really interested to see where things go in the next six issues.”

Geeked Out Nation: 8.4/10 “With the events of Avengers #684, the dial has been cranked to 11 when the Avengers really need to start asking themselves how badly they want to win this game or save the world, because someone may not walk away from this in one piece.”

Graphic Policy: “The creative team give us a break to catch up readers as to the Hulk’s history while also setting him upon his destructive path. It’s an issue that sets things up and has me scratching my head as to how the Avengers are going to deal with this new x-factor.”

Monkeys Fighting Robots: 8/10 “Avengers: No Surrender has been absolutely dynamite so far. It’s exceeded expectations and proved that Marvel is back on track. The 616 is full of life again, with both old and new characters leading the way.”

Rogues Portal: “With a genuinely surprising plot twist at its core, Avengers #684 is an essential installment of the weekly No Surrender saga.”
