I wanted to like this volume, I really did. And the damning part is that, I don't think it's the book itself that's to blame for why it falls apart like it does. See, Champions, Volume 2 is a perfect example of what's wrong with the "big two" in the American comics industry: A story can be going...

Volume 2 of the Champions series is a bit of a mess story-wise and an excellent example of how company-wide events can really mess with individual series at Marvel and DC.
It starts off well enough with the Champions having to deal with a teen mercenary group that oppose everything the Champions a...

I really like the Champions team, but this volume did not have a cohesive plot at all. I was intrigued by the Red Locust, but sad that she just vanished. In general I'm not a fan of the secret empire storyline and wish my comics could just stand on their own without confusing world shifts that ha...

I don't entirely know what to make of this book.
On the one hand, it's got a weak plot. The kids are facing off against The Freelancers in the court of public opinion, and the Freelancers are such nobody's that it's hard to care, and the whole idea of stealing a trademark ignores how trademarks ar...

You can keep your "Avengers" and "Justice League." These days, I'm all about "Champions." Admittedly, I only picked up this series because it has Ms. Marvel, the greatest super hero of all time (that isn't named Squirrel Girl, but I digress), but I'll be damned if I'm not loving the whole crew. I...

Not much added to their story line in this volume. The 2 Secret Empire tie in issues (10-11) were pretty dull. Here’s hoping Vol 3 is better I enjoy the team.

This would have been a lot better if not for Secret Empire entirely disrupting all narrative momentum.

This could have been a solid volume except for the two issues that were Secret Empire tie-ins. If they weren't written so well this would have been a 2 star review.

[Read as single issues]
I've expressed my displeasure with Mark Waid's current Avengers/Champions runs already, and this second volume is unfortunately more of the same. The decision to introduce the Freelancers in a Monsters Unleashed issue that not everyone will have read seems odd, and they're...

A lot of good writing and fun, standalone stories. However, the lack of connections between each issue is really jarring. Viv is dramatically grounded by her father at the end of one issue, and is watching Avatar: The Last Airbender at the start of the next. i liked a lot about what happened on t...
