With Marvel redeeming themselves on a lot of fronts last week, I don't know how this was missed.
The Runaways pay a visit to the Avenger's Academy in order to bring back Old Lace, who was last seen in another dimension/time, sent away to heal (see last issue).

I found it to be another pleasant surprise.

... understanding and tolerance.

The Academy teachers don't want to force the Runaways to do anything they don't want to, but there is the issue of the two pre-teens who are part of the group, who anyone in their right mind would know that they are too young for this kind of life.

So a fight breaks out in the prehistoric past, as to who should raise Molly and Klara of the Runaways.

Needless to say, the youth ally with each other against the Pym and Tigra, and they decide to talk about their differences rather than beat each other's brains in.

And since talking isn't getting the job done, we come to magic.

An understanding/"walk in our shoes"/shared experiences spell gives everyone access to their different experiences and perspectives. The Academy teachers grant the girls permission to stay with the Runaways, with a few caveats (concerning the girls education and what not).

So the teams part ways, and we see love blossom for two members of the teams.

Awwwww.... feel the love.

Chase is just asking for trouble, isn't he?

I will so buy this! (and too bad Nico's spells are one-use only. Every team of super-heroes need this spell!)

Lovely stuff. I particularly like the panels of Hank and Molly.

Chase is just asking for trouble, isn't he?
In all likelihood, yes.

If the Runaways are (still?) friendly with the Young Avengers, I'd say he should go talk to them to get more of an understanding about how time machines can turn out to be an *extremely* bad idea.

Is the Understand spell SUPPOSED to just be a lazy deus ex machina? Because that's what it seems like from the page.

Also, I am so happy Carolina and Julie are dating. I've always liked them since the second volume of Runaways ("You have really pretty hair"...SQUEE)

Nope, I think it's just a nicer way of saying "Nico just brainwashed the shit out of a bunch of people."

'cause, honestly, I kinda assumed that's what she did there.

You want a quick way of understanding the admittedly difficult history of the Runaways - including running away from Iron Man and throwing Wolverine around like a juggling ball - you use a cheap spell rather than waste a page. Plus, it's Nico. Deus ex machina spells are pretty much her thing.

I still wish the colorist had any idea how Karolina's powers are supposed to look. :(

Still, do kinda like Lightspeed and Karolina dating.

I loved the last exchange between Giant-Man and Victor.
"And you don't have to call me 'Dr. Pym'."
"Dr. Pym is fine."

I've never been big on rebellion for rebellions sake and as a teenager I felt extremely vulnerable so the Runaways case doesn't really appeal to me. And when they rejected a teaching robot, because it could spy on them? So what. It means they'd have backup if they did something stupid.

Pym losses some major points for not having her wait until he could call over the main Avengers and X-Men before they start their little tiff over in AvX.

The Runaway's case has always been sketchy at best.

Goddamnit Marvel, bring Gert back already, okay! This is fine, but it would be better with Gert. Chase totally agrees.

The Julie/Karolina is super adorable, though. And I like the Greer moments. I wish they would have an Avengers Academy issue featuring her.

A teaching robot that was built by Hank Pym.

They know how dangerous Pymbot AIs can be.

I don't know.
I think BKV was good about writing her magic well so that it didn't actually feel like a DEM.
And honestly, they could have done a cut-away "50 Minutes Later... AA is finished listening to Nico telling the history of the Runaways"

I didn't consider it might actually be given a personality

Pym wanted to give the systems of the shrunken satellite base that the Secret Avengers operate in it's own AI. He just likes making robots. Beast stopped him that time.

Besides how good can a teaching robot be if it can't adapt it's personality and teaching style to its students?

Chase + Time Machine idea is kind of off since Chase actually gave up the chance to use Gert's parents time machine to undo her death back in Joss Whedon's run on the comic.

And trying to change the past via Time Travel in the Marvel verse is iffy at best. Some people can make it work for them like Kang the Conquerer, others can't like oddly enough, Kang again (teenage Kang).
