Anyhow, back when Magneto was running Xavier's school (and everything was made of awesome), Emma Frost manipulated Mags into sending the New Mutants to her Academy. When Magneto realized his mistake, he and Warlock rushed off to Massachusetts to "rescue" them, and Emma called the authorities, who sent The Avengers out to ambush him (he was still on everyone else's shit list at the time).
When the New Mutants got wind of what was going on, Illyana decided to take action.

Seven pages of twenty-two from #251, five pages of seventeen from #252, one page of five from a backup feature and an ad.

Marvel needs to bring this man back. I will show you why.

What I wasn't expecting was a moment with Thor that struck me as pretty fun.

I've always been a DC Comics fan. (In large part because when I was a little girl I wanted to be Wonder Woman.) I never read Marvel comics before falling in love with movie Loki. Since then I've read some comics with Loki in them, but just diving into Marvel is frustrating for fans of Loki as played by Tom Hiddleston. In most of the comics, Loki is a straight-up villain whose motivation is that he's evil. He's still Machiavellian, but missing (usually) is the heartbreak, the mad struggle for power and identity, and the complex, intense relationship with Thor.
So I'm compiling a list of comics that are of particular interest to movie Loki fans. I'll add to this list whenever I discover more.

Here, we cover Avengers Academy #21-27 as the kids adjust to the West Coast Campus, meet some old foes, older foes and make new friends.
And I complain about things Arena dropped the ball on, because we all know that's entertaining.
( Avengers! Runaways! Subversions! )
This arc serves as a culmination of a lot of what Academy was about and may just be the best arc in the entire series. Yeah, it's downhill after this. But it's one hell of a high note.
Get your hankerchiefs ready, this is gonna be one hell of a tearjerker.
It also continues the trend these posts have had of "Academy showing up Arena at its own game" as we see death handled maturely and with peak drama.
( For those that managed to miss this event (lucky you), )

But there are a few others, and we'll be going through them here. Avengers Academy Giant Size #1 and Amazing Spider-Man #661-662. Also, we have #13, 14 and 14.1 of Academy. Most of these are just side-stories and setup for what's to come.
Oh, and a dance. Because stress.
( Onward! )
