    One thought on “Uncanny Avengers, Volume 2: The Apocalypse Twins”

    1. This is one wacky story.Thor disobeys his father and creates a weapon to destroy Apocalypse (a long time ago), but the decision eventually comes back to bite him in the ass.fast forward lots of yearsKang has tortured trained a couple of kids to becoming the Apocalypse Twins, in the hopes they will do something in the future.*just go with it*There's a group called Unity made up of Avengers & X-men in an attempt to unite both groups. It works out really wellThe (now) evil siblings have grown [...]

    2. The first issue in this collection is really strong, a young Thor tale that wouldn't be out of place in Aaron's Thor: God of Thunder. It feels very lost in this book, but that doesn't take away from the fact that it's a nice piece of work. The rest of the book I don't know. Maybe it's because it draws heavily on things that happened in other books. Remender's own X-Force, it seems. Which I have not read. I felt lost for much of the book, until I gave up on trying to fully understand what was goi [...]

    3. I really enjoyed the first volume of this series but this one felt insanely confusing and disjointed. Disappointing.

    4. This book is turning out to be the stone cold disaster that everyone feared it would be from its inception. Even in Remender's capable hands, it's an absolute mess. First two issues of this arc, the team is MIA. Nowhere to be found. Instead, there's 40 pages of backstory to set up what Remender has been harping on since he started Uncanny X-Force- the Apocalypse Solution. I wish to god he'd just put it to rest. Instead, we have all sorts of garbled time-travel nonsense going on with Kang, Thor a [...]

    5. I'm really most excited about the second collected volume of Uncanny Avengers because the writer Remender finally began his continuation of his celebrated Uncanny X-Force run. It's in this volume that Wolverine has begun to reap what he sowed when he ran his covert wetworks team. Unfortunately, his sins may break the newly-formed Avengers Unity squad before it found its feet.This is certainly one beautifully illustrated volume. Remender really took advantage of having the artist Acuña for his s [...]

    6. I liked this for the most part. Remender has a good characterisation for each individual character. He's good at giving each one their own time and something to do. I thought an Avengers book with Captain America in were he's not in charge of the team would be weird, but it's not. The team is still trying to find its footing, and there's still a tension between Mutant and human.It's the story that loses me a bit though. Feels like a lot has been leading up to this. A lot that I've missed out on [...]

    7. A little heavy-handed, but so good. One of my favorite Marvel books currently out there. And I'm becoming a fan of Remender. He consistently puts out great stuff.

    8. This book just pours on the weird like brandy on a trailer-park wedding cake. This book just doesn't feel like any normal superhero tale.This book just makes me wonder what kind of mind-focusing supplements Rick Remender is taking. There's a lot of carry-over from Remender's Uncanny X-Force run, and that's pretty awesome - it's fun and rewarding to see previous storylines actually revisited after they're completed - and used as linchpins to the current story. So often they're just obliquely refe [...]

    9. This title quickly went from being about an Avengers Unity Squad (mixing mutants and "normal" super-heroes) to Remender tying up some story elements leftover from his excellent Uncanny X-Force run. While I appreciate a continuation (of sorts) to that story, this title seems to be having some kind of identity crisis. There's also very little "unity" in this unity squad, as their primary communication seems to be squabbling over the "mutants vs normals" a lot (and having the actual characters poin [...]

    10. I'm really enjoying this series. It's got some amazing art, and I love the storyline with the Apocalypse twins. I'm glad to read a story where you can easily see where the "villain" is coming from.One thing I don't like is that this storyline seems to be a continuation of the storyline from Uncanny X-Force that Rick Remender also wrote. I have read some of that, but not all of it. I would read those books before you get into this series if you can. It will really help a lot. Sadly, the book ends [...]

    11. This feels very much like a continuation of Remender's X-Force, which is all for the good, as it allows him to expand upon the Apocalypse mythology that he created there. Some of the characters feel a bit wooden, but Remender does a good job with Rogue, Scarlet Witch, and Havoc, and the issue of Thor backstory is very nice.All around, an enjoyable comic.

    12. Whilst this is a direct follow on from the events of Uncanny Avengers Vol 1, The Apocalypse Twins serves more as a follow on from Remender's run on Uncanny X-Force. There are an awful lot of revelations about Archangel, his children, and the killing of a young Apocalypse, which I'm loosely aware stem from said run. Having not read any of Remender's Uncanny X-Force to date, these reveals had minimal impact for me, but I could see them holding deeper meaning for long term followers of Remender's M [...]

    13. This book is still amazing. I don't understand what everyone has against it. It's not entirely new reader friendly, but it does a decent job of covering those basics. Keep in mind, though, that the necessary background reading is Remender's run on X-Force, which was excellent. It's almost a bonus that you would need to read it first. I'll admit, I was skeptical. When I saw the designs for the Apocalypse Twins, I wasn't that impressed and expected to not really like them much, but they are fantas [...]

    14. The first time I read through this arc, I really didn't enjoy it. I had no idea what was going on or who 90% of the characters were. After introducing myself to comics with Civil War and then jumping into Avengers vs. X-Men, I assumed Uncanny Avengers was the logical place to continue because it seemed to spin out of AvX directly. In hindsight, I wasn't prepared for the amount of Marvel History I needed in order to understand this story. Having gone back to revisit this story after several years [...]

    15. Wow. I really liked Uncanny Avengers, Vol. 1: The Red Shadow. Great art. Great villain. This one, not so much. The art is still lovely -- I really liked Rogue and Thor, especially. And the first issue (Uncanny Avengers #6) -- a Thor tale that lays the backstory -- is really engaging. Finally, I am fascinated by Simon's pacifism. For those reasons, I give the book 2/5 stars. But otherwise, this one is a real slog. I don't care for Kang. I don't care for Apocalypse or Horsemen or any of it. I am e [...]

    16. Incredible! I wasn't expecting much heading into this one, but it turned out to be an already classic story for me. Awesome lineup of characters (both heroes and villains), an epic storyline (so much at stake but still unpredictable) and some great fight scenes, which are actually few and far between these days. The best part for me was that Daniel Acuna's art has never looked better. And the Apocalypse Twins' story is not even over yet.Can't wait for the next volume!

    17. A bit slow considering it builds up to the payoff in the following volume, but quite adept in how it builds on Remender's previous runs in other books and continues to highlight great, yet unexpected character interactions.

    18. Honestly, I was mostly just confused reading this issue, but I was also annoyed. Once again, I found Remender's Wanda to be extremely irritating: too preachy, too quick to consider giving into madmen, and way too hypocritical. Here's hoping she'll be swapped out for a more sympathetic lead sometime soon. I suspect if I knew more of the mythos surrounding Apocalypse and Kang I would have enjoyed this more, but as I have only a passing knowledge of the lore surrounding each character it read a lot [...]

    19. I’ve got to say, at first I was skeptical of this one. They packed a lot of mythos into a tiny novel and at times it felt forced. There also seemed to be a lot of information that was told in other novels and was missing in this one so it was confusing. But by the end I was quickly reading each page and hurrying to the next. It ended in a way that makes me want to read the next one immediately.

    20. Collects Uncanny Avengers issues #6-11This may come as a surprise given the subject material, but there were some parts of this that were downright boring. I just wanted to be done with it. Plus, the artwork changes in the middle, and it is a change for the worse. There were some highlights, such as the presence of Kang the Conqueror, as well as timey-wimey story-telling. Parts of this storyline with the Apocalypse Twins tie in with the previous Uncanny X-Force series, in which Wolverine led a b [...]

    21. Hundreds of years earlier, a young, brash Thor clashed with Apocalypse. Eager for revenge, Thor allowed himself to be tricked by Kang into enchanting his ax Jarnbjorn so that it could affect Celestials or their creations. Kang later acquired Jarnbjorn and, with Apocalypse Twins Eimin and Uriel, briefly interfaced with the Age of Ultron timeline. Kang had given the twins a brutal upbringing, indoctrinating that they needed to “save” the mutants of their time. The Twins returned to the present [...]

    22. Comic book storytelling is interesting for a number of reasons, not least of which is the nature of each comic book series existing as a sort of hermetically sealed plot unit. Let me explain in more detail. Though Uncanny Avengers, Avengers World, and Hickman's Avengers all occur across roughly the same time frame, it is impossible to order the events of each series. Though Captain America is featured in each, the moments of respite against the Apocalypse Twins where he goes to fight the Builder [...]

    23. I liked the idea of the Uncanny Avengers, but the first volume left me underwhelmed. There is a lot of angst within the group, especially between Rogue and Wanda, which underlies the reality that these people are not truly a team – yet. Plus, the Red Skull was just an uninspired and boring choice of villain. Volume two has a much more interesting antagonist in the form of the Apocalypse Twins. They have been manipulated by Kang the Conqueror but branch out of their own to bring The Rapture to [...]

    24. Rick Remender - authorDaniel Acuña - illustratorHundreds of years ago, when Thor was a young God, he encountered a mysterious giant in the Norse lands who soundly defeated him. The giant is Apocalypse, who seeks out Thor at the direction of Kang, the time-traveling Conquerer. Kang plays Thor and Apocalypse against one another to facilitate the augmentation of a special weapon that will play an important role in his future plans.Then, in the present, the Apocalypse Twins - children of the deceas [...]

    25. I have tried to be patient with this set of Marvel revamp stories, and I have even liked some of them (including the first volume of this series), but this volume crystallizes a trend in all of them that has caused me to call it the last straw for Marvel.These Marvel now releases are supposed ease in casual fans by providing stories that don't require an extensive knowledge of the universe's back story. The first volume of Uncanny Avengers managed to do that, concisely summarizing the events of [...]

    26. Volume two of this series didn't follow with the greatness that I would have hoped. It failed to match the great story and art of the first. Following defeating the Red Skull (who had heisted the brain of the late Professor Charles Xavier and employed its power), the team faces a greater, more cosmic threat in The Apocalypse Twins. Story-wise this volume lacked the intensity of the first. The first was new and exciting. It drew upon vast amounts of the history of the characters. It zipped along [...]
