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. )
The events of #150 and what #152's leading into are and seem to be based on the existing history of characters; #151 focuses on the Ghost, who hasn't had much of one beyond being a fervent destroyer of corporations (and, recently, a conspiracy nut.)
It's a pretty good origin story as these things go, even if it does make you think about just how necessary an origin really is for certain characters.
( But there's always an out, if you want one; he's telling it to Moonstone. )
