Not much has changed as to who my favorite female character is; it's still Jessica Jones. She's a type of female character that we don't really see that much in that as the series begins she's basically in a really bad place. She was a superhero but not a really good one. She drinks. She smokes. She swears.

That being said my view is still that the character -- even though she's gotten her act together with a marriage and a kid -- has kind of suffered with her being made a supporting character on non-MAX titles. There's a rawness to the original series that you can't really get across in a mainstream title. The swearing is only a part of it.

Still, the original Alias title remains one of my favorite runs and here is the first issue. If you like it give the other posts I did a whirl and maybe even buy the trades.

This a one-shot that's available for free on the Marvel comics app or on Marvel Unlimited. I thought it was an interesting response to the more 'cynical' approach to superheroes and the criticism of "How come they're not stopping poverty/war/disease, etc?"

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.  )
