    I honestly thought this was very cute with an uplifting message. There is no action so to speak. Just a teen costumed hero who seeks out the Avengers after sitting in a class listening to a teacher say how the Avengers and those who wear costumes/masks are not heroes. We then have some of our fav characters like Captain America, Luke Cage, etc. talk about what makes a hero. I even love the message Cap gives about how his outfit/costume is a symbo...

    A one shot on what makes someone a hero. There is literally no action in the comic, but it is still good because of the message.
  • Luke Burrage
    Free comic!Underwear perverts discuss what it means to be a hero. Which is fun, in some ways, but it seems to me that *BOOBS* such a discussion only makes sense in a world *BOOBS* where the underwear perverts exist and work by the rules set out in underwear pervert comics.I mean, there *BOOOBS* is some handy apologetics on display, but I can't help thinking, why not use your superpowers for real good, instead of *BUTTS* just violence? Iron Man ha...

    It's a free and short comic, so complaints are obviously relative. However, this is a pretty trite little piece on heroism, which, apart from lacking originality, doesn't do much to setup this profound life lesson. I did like some of the artwork, however, but the reading experience on a Kindle is not that great.Definitely don't read this if you're in a cynical mood.

    I chose this rating because it is a great book and it teaches you a lesson. I liked how the heroes discussed with each other. I would recommend this to 6-12 year-olds. If you read this book you will learn the difficulties of war.I chose this rating because it is a great book and it teaches you a lesson about the difficulties of war.

    Awesome Great life lesson that we often forget I feel like. Of course we shouldn't be doing good actions just to be recognized, and it's not because it is indeed not recognized by the entire world that it doesn't matter. :)

    En realidad no soy mucho de Comics actualmente, de niño hice mi propia colección y los leía ávidamente, sin embargo, este era gratis y lo "compré" en la tienda de Amazon, lo tuve en la estantería hasta este día que tuve tiempo y me lo leí.No debería contar como libro ya que solo tiene 14 paginitas con cartones y muy poco texto, pero aqui va mi impresión del comic.(view spoiler)[Trata de un día tranquilo en el cuartel general de los ven...

    I was really into this book ! I'm a huge comic fan , and to see all my favorite heroes linked together is just mind boggling. It gave a wonderful twist on the kid heroes we all know & love and mixed it in well with action & gore. I would have liked it a lot more if i was able to keep up with the book better, i felt i was finding myself in new scenes and didn't know how i even got there. Other then that this book would be recommended to all my fri...

    Poignant AnswersGreat for clarifying certain answers & great responses to what is a hero & what quantifies being a hero & if hero’s actually have a purpose in serving the people on Earth for a greater purpose & are they saviors of man kind or merely average people who happen to have amazing powers in addition to being perfectly mere mortals flawed in mind maybe & filled with doubts just as any normal person without special powers.

    The new, young Nova comes to the Avengers to discuss what makes a hero. Are they doing enough by stopping super powered bad guys? Should they be working on different problems?This is a nice little discussion that tries to look at why superheroes do what they do. It is fairly short so don't expect deep philosophical truths to be revealed but it should be enough to make you think about what makes a hero. Perhaps, it might even lead you to coming up...

    What Makes A HeroNot full of action, but a young hero raises a valid question, due to a school assignment. What makes a hero? Are we doing enough as heroes?Heroes do what they can, but should they be made to do more, and is it ever enough - some say yes and some say no. But the point Iron Man makes at the end is a valid and interesting one to consider.

    Few new superheroesYeeyy avengers... While reading I kept imagining the people who are playing the part in the movies and I felt like this is the new movie that launched now. So much fun it is!!
  • Debra Chiaro
    Always Fantastic!!!Super Heroes are always FANTASTIC!!! This particular book just points out who they are. Most folks have heard of them all. But just in case you are new to the comics, now you know !
  • Brooklyn
    The Avengers are trying to persuade Nova that that what they do are bad after his teacher basically bashes all superheroes in his class lessonI chose this rating becuase, the visuals were good, but in an Advengers book you expect action, and there was literally none
  • Louise White
    Avengers get philosophicalNot bad for a short read, the question of "what is a hero?" Is answered by the avengers, a bit philosophical but a fun read. I like the features of the graphic novel on the kindle.
  • Bella
    Heroes define heroesA random act of kindness can create a wide impact over the world. Just do it. Spread happiness and help others in every way possible. But don't make them lazy ;)
  • Utkarshbhan
    The best part was interface. The experience of reading a comic on Kindle was simply awesome. I'm not a huge comic fan per se but wanted to read it none the less. And I've to admit that I might soon be reading another one
  • Gregory Spruell
    NoneAsked the question all young people ask, what's my mark in this world? How do I make a difference and what does it all mean? Good short!

  • Brownak
    Captivating It puts you in a place that you don't really get to see from the avengers. The importance of needing to know why they do what they do and how does it affect the world, that was just an amazing experience.
  • Alexander
    GoodOk cool thanks againCool cool cool thanks for the bookWell you can get it done by then and very well as much of the best way to read.
  • Lindberg
    Not Bad!This was good,but not very long. I would expect a longer story. I haven't bought a graphic novel before, so maybe my expectations are to high.

  • Matt Friedman
    Surprisingly meaningfulI downloaded this mainly out of curiosity, and because it was free. It turned out to be an interesting discussion on the meaning of heroism. Not bad.
  • Arthur
