3 out of 5 stars
For the most part, the character designs seem like fairly familiar sci-fi looks. We've got the usual third-eyes, extra appendages, maybe some exaggerated facial thing, etc., but what's most exciting to me are the A.I.s who've moved past the humanoid template and are looking like glowing green crystals. I hope we get to see more of that element of the weird and strange from Araújo. He is a capable artist with a look that seems pretty atypical of the current major Avenger titles. It works well with Sam Humphries's sense of humor and it gives Avengers A.I. the feel of a fun, offbeat Marvel book.

"Avengers A.I.," like the characters it features, has promise as a concept. It is farming virgin soil in the Marvel Universe, but isn't giving us characters with pathos. Hank Pym is a whiner on an ego trip and Vision is as conflicted as he's ever been. There isn't much to cheer for here and there isn't much to hook into. "Avengers A.I." #3 seems like a last gasp for me -- not for lack of technical execution, just for lack of soul, a concept that almost seems funny considering the struggles some of these characters face or wrestle with themselves.
4 out of 5 stars
AVENGERS A.I. continues it's charming nature. Sam Humphries Avengers consisting of characters with artificial intelligence is carving out its own little corner of the Marvel Universe.
Grade: B
There may be some missteps when it comes to some of the themes and how some characters are portrayed, yet nothing that is related to the Diamond concept is done in a way that doesn’T feel interesting, with some great ideas and some utterly beautiful art from both André Lima Araujo and Frank D’Armata.
9 out of 10
Andre Araujo and Frank D’Amata’s art leaps out at the reader, especially as they take us into the realm created entirely for the newly awakened A.I. Smart and funny, it’s one of the sleeper hits of the year.
