Greetings True Believers!

Here 3 funny scans from Avengers Academy #3. Various superheroes are visiting the kiddies to teach them various stuff. One class has the female cadets learning from the mighty Shield-Maiden herself!

Her advice the point.

Plus, a Juggernaut funny!

Class is in session.

I want a Hercules and Valkyrie mini now.

The kiddies are also in a "super-scared straight" program where they visit The Raft and talk to the Thunderbolts.

Reptil has a question for Cain.

Hehe, is Reptil to polite to ask him to say, "I'm the Juggernaut bitch!"

And also a female character is speaking frankly to other female characters about female desire and sexuality, and presenting it in a non-judgmental way - wow. I really like that.

She was being pretty judgmental about women who might actually want to have sex with men. I really don't like her implication that actively desiring men is buying into the idea that you need a man to be happy, or that having sex with men and keeping your mind on what is "truly important" are mutually exclusive.

This is interpretation, of course, but I read that as desiring men is natural, but Valkyrie thinks it's best just to take care of said desire oneself, because men will disappoint one way or another. It didn't come across as judgmental to me. (Well, not of women.)

I don't really have a problem with her view that sex and romance are a distraction from what she considers more important things - in this case, cleaving skills. Especially placed in the wider context of comics messages; there are so many messages saying that sex and romance are the important things for girls, I like having this contrary message that not only are they not that important, they can actually distract from the important things. Sure, if all the messages in comics were about how women couldn't have sex with men and do important stuff that would be problematic, but given that they're not, I think this is a good one to have.

Yeah, it felt more like (badly done) Thundra than Val. :\
