Greetings True Believers!

AA is quickly becoming one of my favorite Marvel books.

Angst! Generational conflict! Hawkeye joins the staff!


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.

I was under the impression that Hazmat was referring to the Double Rainbow meme.

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...

These look worse than they actually are out of context. The kids kinda get worked into a frenzy about the idea that they're about to be kicked to the curb because they're "broken" before the screaming and punching breaks out. Teenagers aren't stable as a rule, and abused, damaged teenagers who have recently been through hell are much less so.

I normally like asshole characters. Guy Gardner's my favorite lantern, I loved me some Hellion back in the day, and I even have something of a soft spot for Brainiac 5. But goddamn is Striker annoying. Something about him fails to appeal to me on a bunch of different levels.

But it's also used in the context of someone being "as queer as a Double Rainbow".

And with all of the rumors of Julie's sexuality, that line just rubbed me the wrong way.

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.)

How odd. I'd never heard that before, and Googling it either shows up as references to the meme or the Urban Dictionary page, which is several entries concerning Nathan Fillion attempting to popularize it as a slang term for "joyfully amazing" and one concerning homosexuality.

I have to imagine Gage was referencing the meme, but you're welcome to ask him.

Looks like Mettle thought the same about you.

Okay, that's corny enough to eat!

I'm okay with corny though, makes me the straight man in the group.

I've always wondered how the Thing got it on, did he borrow some Pym particles from Reed? Maybe that's why RIchards was so loathe to give Hank the inducer back.
Reed: Hank took the inducer back, sorry Ben.
Grimm: It's clobbering time!

HAHA! But seriously, the most important part is that Mettle must bottom, he cannot under any circumstances top Hazmat or she's going to be hazmat flat-as-a-mat. Okay, I'm no longer the straight man in the group after that last one.

I doesn't need to be genital to genital contact. Mettle's capable of forming words, so I assume he's got a tongue.

Although *cue classic Brodie from Mallrats question here*

The Urban Dictionary entry has a couple more definitions that concern homosexuality on the second page, not as many as the meme. but it's still used in a derogatory manner to queer people.

It could just be a coincidence and Gage didn't intend it to be offensive. But even if the intent wasn't there I still find it annoying.

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.

Muscle growth is triggered by microtears in the muscle, which acts as a signal to the body to build more muscle in order to avoid further injury. Butterball is incapable of having these little injuries, so his muscles don't get any bigger.

Although couldn't they just have him work out with Leech in the gym at the same time?

Here's the thing as I view it- these kids have gone through a lot of bad stuff. Sure, Capt's done some incredibly awesome stuff... but it doesn't have a direct bearing on their trauma and issues, and they don't have any perspective on it... yet.

Sure, Striker was being a douche... and Capt was letting him, because that's what he needed. Ideally, after Striker calms down, Capt gives him a few words, and hopefully Striker realizes what a douche he's being, or at least that getting mad at Capt won't help anything. And the other 'adults' are kinda asses for jumping on the kid and escalating the whole thing further than it had to be.

And that's why Capt is awesome, because he's one of the few people there handling things like an adult even with what Striker was saying.

Ok that gave me a chuckle.

That's the perfect role for Hawkeye, much like when he joined the Thunderbolts.

my point isn't how to get him faster, my point was slowness is only partially do to muscle size, the other parts are lung capacity and discomfort/pain. So since the other two don't apply I think he should be able to move a bit faster than he's supposed to be able to.

Given Julie's power involves rainbows, and I don't see how Hazmat could know anything about her sexuality, I'm not really convinced Hazmat was being homophobic.

If I had a big red skull for a face, I'd try not to make sudden violent movements around Cap.
