Uncanny Avengers #3 Review

Posted by Unknown Wednesday, January 23, 2013
A lot of groundwork has been laid for the story that unfolds in this week’s installment of Uncanny Avengers. While I admittedly found the first two issues a little slow-paced, Uncanny Avengers #3 has no problems on this front and presents readers with fast-paced and jaw-dropping action.

Writer Rick Remender gives a third-person narrative of the tragedy that ensues in this third book. It is a hauntingly detached account yet truly highlights the gravity of the situation. Having fused the late Charles Xavier’s brain with his own, Red Skull uses his newly found telepathic influence to incite a mutant massacre in the heart of New York City. Through his powerful influence, ordinary humans do the unspeakable, seeking out and killing innocent mutants all in the name of one man’s hate and lust for power. Unfortunately, some of our would-be heroes also fall under this influence, stacking upon pre-existing distrust and ultimately adding up to a disjointed and uncoordinated rescue effort.

The artwork appropriately matches the chilling tale, showing the violence that takes place without being too overly gruesome. Facial expressions were especially strong in this issue, showing pure and raw emotion. The message is well-received and has the desired impact on the reader. Combined with the accompanying text, the last few panels have an especially frightening effect and are a perfect ending to an issue like this.

Without a doubt, Uncanny Avengers #3 is the strongest release by Marvel this week. The powerful prose presented in this telling of events drives the reader on, while the brilliant artwork draws the reader ever deeper into the action. The situation is unquestionably dire and the heroes are conflicted. It’s a situation that we all recognize. Admittedly, it’s a little cliché, but I don’t think the cliché factor will come much into play when you eventually witness Red Skull get what’s coming to him after this is all said and done.
