I dislike dwelling on the negative things in life.  I'd rather revel in the good things we had, to celebrate them, even in their absence (which is when I usually realize I really like something).  That was the case with Avengers Academy.  I'd didn't realize I was hooked until It was too late.

So I'm going to do a retrospective posts.  This covers Avengers Academy #1 through #6 and includes their psuedo-Crossover with Thunderbolts (#147) and one appearance in the Ant Man-Wasp mini.  To be honest, Academy wasn't the best of series, but it had heart and an underlying theme which slowly revealed itself over it's run.  Mostly?  Thumbing its nose at mainstream comic conventions. That'll become more obvious later.

Let's get the ball rolling.

A lot behind the cut.  )

These are from the Pulse. Jess is pregnant throughout the 14-issue series and gives birth to Danielle at the end.

The series is a great concept: J. Jonah Jameson wants to gain more readers, and in order to do so launches a new weekly series written by Ben Ulrich. Jess is hired as a consultant/go-between. She takes the job because she and Luke need the health benefits/insurance money. Luke's not entirely pleased about having their superhero lives splashed in the pages of the Bugle. He says he's not famous and nobody knows him. Jess chides him by saying that everyone knows him and loves him. This becomes a running joke throughout the series with people on the street walking up to Luke and telling him what fans they are.

There are some great scenes in this, and the last issue is fantastic and tells the story of how Jess and Luke met.

Here are some of my favourite scenes. First up... Carol, Sue and Jess talk superhero mommy-ing.
