Avengers: Twilight #3 Review:

With Captain America on the ropes, he decides to make a last-ditch effort to free Tony Stark’s severed head from prison. Does the book hold up to the high standard of editor Tom Brevoort’s hype for the issue?

“I really liked this issue,” said host Pete LePage. “I love the art style. It’s got this painted, old-school feel to it, which I think is great. The older Cap is very enjoyable.”

Pointing to the hype, Alex Zalben hypothesized that Brevoort might be getting nostalgic for the end of his Avengers editing era, but still felt “this is a good issue. Chip Zdarsky writes some really good action here, and there are in fact multiple moments where I was like, ‘hell yeah, this is awesome.'”

Calling out those moments, Justin Tyler noted the reveal of Hawkeye, seeing Captain America’s shield “was dope,” Ms. Marvel “stepping it up” and the Thor lightning strike at the end.

“Sweet Avengers issue if you’re an Avengers fan, it goes in the direction you’ve wanted since the beginning of this series,” added Zalben. “Daniel Acuña, his art is stunning.”

“If you’re an Iron Man fan, there’s no better Iron Man story this week,” said Tyler.
