Greetings True Believers!

AA is quickly becoming one of my favorite Marvel books.

Angst! Generational conflict! Hawkeye joins the staff!

Enjoy!



Hazmat, Finesse, Mettle, Reptil and Striker are worried about the new students at AA. They think they're about to get canned. So when Pym, Cap and Cage call them over for a talk, it doesn't go well.



Fight scene is fighty.

Jocasta breaks them all up and tells the teachers they're being insensitive. Cap assures the crew they're not being replaced.



Hazmat and Mettle retire to her quarters where they try to snu-snu.



Later, everyone hugs it out.



The new faces are student-teacher Lightspeed and the new White Tiger.

I like this book.

Yea, they really need Hawkeye here. Those kids have had it pretty hard and the others aren't giving them much slack, Jocasta aside (I'm surprised how Luke's acting, not exactly impressive).

Lightspeed and Tiger seem like good additions too.

Luke Cage always puzzles me. He says stuff and it sounds cool sometimes, but it never makes much sense.

Even better than that? There's going to be a two-parter with the Pride's Kids. Finally we get to see them again!

Also Magneto, if the preview image is to be believed.

I suppose he's a good example of how anyone can reform? And then unreform. And then reform again. And then unreform again. And then...

This. "Hey old man! I read bad things about you on wikileaks!"

You read about the time he stared down Thanos then, kiddo? Or about how many times he's stopped Hitler from being reborn into the body of a robot / Superman / monster? I get the the MU is where everyone questions the heroes but jeez, you don't talk to Cap that way without it being ridiculous.

I think we're supposed to feel sorry for him because he got molested as a kid. Seems to be a reoccurring theme in this book. Hazmat and Striker been through sooooo much trauma you have to feel bad for them, even though they aren't really interesting or likeable characters.

Every school needs "the cool teacher". The one that will teach them about explosives and the embarrising anecdotes of other faculty members (Though it seemed Striker had that pretty much covered here, the prick).

Oooh, low blow Striker.. really low blow. Hawkeye is a brilliant addition to the Academy. He wuld know better than anyone what those kids are going through.

Also, I'm thinking Janet's consciousness is manifesting itself in Jocasta somehow.

I think I saw Boulder/Butterball in the preview and it had me thinking about something

Perviously they said he was slow because he was fat. But he's totally invulnerable to the point he doesn't even feel sensations, just about unkillable.

I'm out of shape myself and pretty slow. But I can sprint at a decent pace for a few seconds. I just rapidly get out of breath and tired and sore. But Boulder would never run out of breath or get sore. So why is he slow?

Lack of strength. As I recall they basically said with his invulnerability he has a static metabolism. He can't get any stronger then he currently is. He can run around all day, just not very fast. He could lift a certain wait all day, but he would build any additional muscle mass from it. Basically he is a totally average aside from his invulnerability and nothing they could do changed that.

I read the first trade of Avengers Academy and it sorta failed to grab me. Everyone seems to like the book, so it get better, right? Because in the first trade, it felt like I could split the characters into two groups: boring and unlikable. (With the exception of Mettle, who seems pretty cool.)

I still haven't warmed up to the unlikable characters, but most fans of the series seem to have so take from that what you will. Veil gets more annoying as the books goes on though.
