    One Reply to “Avengers: Time Runs Out, Volume 3”

    1. Re-read 2016100% less ranty than the original review!This was easily my favorite volume of this event, so far. Easily! All of the individual stories finally started making real sense (to me), and as it all came together it made a cool and (mostly) coherent story about all this Incursion stuff. So many surprises in this sucker! There were even a few times that I did the GASP! thing out loud.Especially when it came to Namor!Not sure what else I can say without giving spoilers to anyone (like me) w [...]

    2. Hickman’s Avengers Time Runs Out saga is drawing to a close, so you’d think it’d be much simpler to actually follow what’s going on. Right?Nope! At least Melville dumped the whaling industry info crap early on in Moby Dick, here, Hickman just doesn’t know when to quit.Goody. Let’s throw in an even bigger threat to the multiverse. They’re of the I-eat-Galactus-for –breakfast-and-crap-out-nebulas variety. For readers not in the know, Galactus dietary requirement are planets. Lots a [...]

    3. I'll do a longer review about the entire Hickman run once I get through the last one, but at this point what started out as seeming like a mishmash of wild sci-fi stuff and B-characters has rapidly turned into a story that I'm really starting to enjoy. Despite how epic the scope is it seems to get better the closer down to the major characters Hickman takes it like how Captain America continues to be in a mouth foaming rage at the Illuminati members for daring to take action he disagreed with wh [...]

    4. I think I'm finally starting to get the hang of it. I honestly think that this is some of the best Avengers work that Hickman has turned out, and it's partly because this volume pauses to brings things down to a more personal level more than once. And also, I think, because I'm starting to get the feeling that it's all finally coming together. More like 3.5 stars, but I'm rounding up because I have a great deal of respect for what Hickman is trying to do and how much work he's put in to get here [...]

    5. Last volume was all about Rogers' populist rage against the technocrats in the Illuminati. This volume is all about T'Challa and Namor and the score-settling that they need to do before the universe ends. Unfortunately, this storyline leads to T'Challa making a series of incredibly stupid mistakes. Even blinded by hatred, I don't think T'Challa would be this adept at snatching defeat from the jaws of victory. He even does the dumb supervillain thing where he monologues instead of just pulling th [...]

    6. ***zzzzzzz****Oh, wait, I'm supposed to wake up and review this book? Really? OK, we have more of the same. Talky super heroes talk and then talk some more, then nothing gets done except the "heroes" try to kill one of their own. Meanwhile, the victim ends up living and then hangs out with some bad guys who are trying to do something about all these worlds crashing into one another. We get a glimpse of how Marvel is going to destroy the Fantastic Four because they bring in some bad version of Re [...]

    7. I liked this volume well enough, though nothing multiverse-shattering going on. The intersection with the Ultimates Universe would've been more appealingif I knew or cared anything about the Ultimates.

    8. This volume feels like it has a lot of that middle-child syndrome long series arcs suffer from. Volume 3 exists to bridge us from the fallout of Volume 2's big battle, while introducing some new story threads to carry us into the final volume.I will say, though, that Hickman gives one heck of a payoff to the long-standing feud between the Black Panther and Namor. Way back in Avengers vs. X-Men, Namor, while possessed by the Phoenix Force, made a life-long enemy out of Panther. While they've been [...]

    9. This as the second-to-last book in the run-up to Secret Wars is building up excruciatingly to the moment when Shit Really Happens, and it's hard to keep straight all the threats to humanity that keep popping up with their Mohawks and helmets. Grrrr. I want this to be over but I don't want to miss any of the great moments in store for me.Nice little moment of poetry and dirty heroism in this book, what with (view spoiler)[Namor finally getting revenged/killed by (hide spoiler)] Black Panther, at [...]

    10. This is my 4th volume of this truly epic and wonderful series. It has gotten better and better with each volume. The very 1st one was a wee bit confusing because a lot was going on all at once. Vol 2 began to tie the loose ends together and Vol 3 makes a LOT more sense. The incursion of the multiverses is now down to only a few. The Illuminati have teamed up with SHIELD and have managed to set a trap for the ruthless Cabal. I won't give away spoilers and say who betrays whom but its a stunner. M [...]

    11. This was much better than the previous 2 volumes. things seemed to flow better and makes more sense.

    12. Ugh, Old Man Rogers. I cannot even handle him. And then Hickman adds a handful of Inhumans back into the storyline. Great. More teams I don't give a rat's ass about Why is everyone in this so unlikable? To quote grumpy Old Man Rogers, sadly, "Can we continue? Please."Also, let's just bounce the timeline around some more for the hell of it. Why not?

    13. Oh, alright already. I'm getting really impatient with Hickman's Avengers. We've been spinning our wheels for over a year now. And nothing much has happened. Not enough story going on here.

    14. Well this is finally coalescing into something coherent. The series is a little all over the place, given the subject matter. I put a pin in it a couple of months ago to catch up on everything pre-Secret Wars before diving back in. Avengers and New Avengers continue to cross over so that they really wouldn’t make sense on their own. This has really turned into the event before the event for Secret Wars. It reads like a true crossover, and at this point we are on volume 3 of 4, so you’re eith [...]

    15. Sigo confundido pero fascinado. Los dibujos, como ya he dicho en la reseña del volúmen anterior, me parecen muy buenos.Pasan muchas cosas pero también explican muchas otras. El problema es que a Marvel le gusta hacer eventos un poco complejos que requieren que el lector esté 100% metido en su Universo, cosa que yo no he hecho. Me gusta mucho como manejan la relación entre Black Panther y Namor luego de los sucesos de AvX, me parece majestuoso!Buen volúmen, estoy con ansias de leer el volú [...]

    16. I want to give this five stars. It's an absolutely brilliant read. But it's part of a long-form comic arc that Jonathan Hickman has been tremendously maintaining. I definitely recommend starting all the way back at New Avengers Vol 1 to get the full impact.That said, this volume really upped the game in anticipation for what happens when "Time Runs Out" (answer: Secret Wars). Characters are getting pushed to their extremes and unexpected twists wait with each page turn. More than a few times my [...]

    17. This series continues to be entirely amazing — one of the best superhero comics ever produced. On the one hand we have the story of the Cabal, an epic story of the sort that usually isn't even attempted in the comic, yet it has great character moments too. On the other hand we have Yellowjacket's report of the multiverse, revealing truly amazing sights, and also giving us our first hints of what happened. The final issue of this volume is a bit weak, because it's primarily setup, but otherwis [...]

    18. My head asplode. I humbly admit that there are whole chunks of this entire event that my feeble mind does not comprehend. As Hank Pym says, "At some point, the mind the mind becomes incapable of fully understanding what it's observing." But the odd bits that I do understand are freekin' awesome!If I have one quibble, it's that there are times when I feel like I've missed parts of the story. Whether that's because I'm not reading everything that's being put out, or because I'm having brain exhaus [...]

    19. The Black Panther/Namor hate finally comes to an end and it's great! Pym's quest into the far reaches of the universe reads as a little bit too convenient of a way to provide information to the reader, but still enjoyable. I was never a reader of Ultimate Marvel, but the introduction of that universe's Reed Richards is ridiculously good. Old Cap's wedged that stick out of his ass a tiny bit, but he's still no Captain America.

    20. This is really building into a great epic. Definitely not a story that will easily return to the status quo.

    21. Collects Avengers (2012) issues #40-42 and New Avengers (2013) issues #29-30Set 8 months in the future of the current Marvel Universe, various factions of Avengers are attempting to stop the collapse of the Mutliverse. Unfortunately, these factions are sometimes opposed. In the wake of a big confrontation between the superhero community, time is finally taken for the opposing sides to hear the other people out. This volume starts by letting us know more about what the Illuminati have been up to [...]

    22. Superheroes stand around gawking at the end of the world. People with amazing powers and abilities drawn waiting around. Suddenly Yellowjacket shows up and you think SHITZ BOUT TO GO DOWN but no, he is also neutered. sad.

    23. The events of this saga are finally becoming clear, mind bending and confusing, but in a good way. Bigger than any comic book storyline I have ever read. Be sure to have on the ready though

    24. This was RUBBISH, as if this book couldn't be more confusing Jonathan Hickman throws in some other kind of threat called the "beyonders" (original i know). Honestly i couldn't figure out if they were good or bad but they seemed to be killing some celestials so who knows?The worst and most confusing part of this book is Ant-man seemingly trying to explain as vaguely as humanly possible what had happened while we had forgotten about him for however many months it took him to grow that unsparingly [...]

    25. I vacillated between 3 and 4 stars for a little bit on this one and decided to err on the side of four.What I'm not wild about is the revelation that the oft-mentioned, unseen Ivory Kings are the Beyonders - I had hoped that Secret Wars was just going to be a reference in name only and wouldn't require any space gods to get things going (well, beyond the ones who are already superheroes). The revelation that they've been hunting down the Celestials and the higher levels of the cosmic hierarchy f [...]

    26. Continuing this long form story that led up to Secret Wars, this one at least has more recognizable elements from Marvel history instead of being random new junk Hickman came up with. Still, his stuff is mixed in there, and the factions aren't easy to distinguish from one another, so it is kind of a mess. The art is diminishing in quality as we go, and there are entirely too many typographic styles to the point where they distract from, rather than enhance the story. I liked the inclusion of som [...]
