Despite being a tie in to an event comic, Avengers Academy's tie in to Fear Itself is honestly one of the best things to come out of both. I'll also be posting another honestly good thing to come out of Fear Itself, an issue of Secret Avengers written by Nick Spencer. Because it's taking place in Washington DC like the events here, and is just that awesome.

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), )

Now, back to the fun of Avengers Academy.  The series as a whole did not have a lot of tie in material.  Some of the kids appeared in Wasp & Ant-Man, and they also played a role in Marvel Universe vs. Avengers.  We already covered the former, and we're not touching the later for several reasons: 1) It's honestly very bad, 2) It's an AU, 3) They barely do anything there, 4) the art is horrible, 5) They keep drawing the wrong Hazmat (yes, there are two characters named Hazmat at Marvel, the other one was created for the crappy Rise of the Imperfects video game.

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.

Sorry to post so close together, but I've been reading various articles about our s_d drama and after wading through various sites and their comments (some of which seem to want to take this opportunity to kick us while we're down) I found a quote from one of our more well known supporters (It's a bit long so I'm putting it behind a cut)
Gail Simone, in our defense and two pages from Agent X #5 )

Edit: Well it was on schmevil's lj as well, but I figure it could be posted here too.
