Weekly Marvel Review: September 25, 2019 (Week 39)

The Avengers know how to strike when the iron is hot and they end the month of September on a high note. Captain America and Captain Marvel lead the charge with 19 and 20 respective review points for the week. While Carol has fewer appearances in 2019 than other top tier characters such as Cap and Iron Man, she remains Marvel’s third-best character on the year with a total review score of 245. The rest of her current Avengers allies are not slouching either, and continue making cameo appearances including in the first issue of Strikeforce, the Team Book of the Week with 50 points. In the book’s debut, Blade goes behind the Avengers’ back to lead a group including Spider-Woman and Winter Soldier on a covet mission. The proper Avengers title earns a review score of 36 for Marvel’s flagship team.

Captain Marvel features in Fearless, another top team book from the week with a score of 45, and Captain America’s ongoing earns the Top Solo Book of the Week with 32 points. He continues his team-up with White Tiger and the other Daughters of Liberty in a quest to distinguish himself from the tainted Captain America moniker. A former Captain Marvel appears in Avengers: Loki Unleashed, the Top Event Book of the Week. Monica Rambeau, aka Spectrum, provides some personal insight and internal narration in a flashback tale from the team’s past and scores eight of the book’s 48 points.
