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.

Yeah, sorry. 

I did mentioned this a few times in the Academy and Arena posts, but it's time to get it up.  It's been out for a bit, but I've been elsewhere. 

And lazy.  Oh so lazy.

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.  )

With Marvel redeeming themselves on a lot of fronts last week, I don't know how this was missed.
The Runaways pay a visit to the Avenger's Academy in order to bring back Old Lace, who was last seen in another dimension/time, sent away to heal (see last issue).

I found it to be another pleasant surprise.

Over at the Jean Grey School they teach fisticuffs. Over here, we teach... )

So this came out this week and as many might know featured the Runaways and the Avengers Academy kids meeting up. Lullz assuredly did ensue. So here's three pages of interest, though the first two are actually going further into Striker since his coming out a few issues ago.

Newsarama has the wordless preview.

And we make get the next Sabretooth/Wolverine like rivalry. Or maybe the pic behind the cut could qualify for "context is for the weak."

I can't tell.

CosmicBookNews continues to deliver the happenings over at mighty Marvel. One would argue that you can't call them the "House of Ideas" anymore, but maybe the "House-of-New-Twists-on-an-old-theme" may be a better fit.

With all "events" has been occurring over at Marvel, it was high time that the new recruits faced off against one of the major Avenger villains and earn their name. And this hints at the next big event at Marvel. Writer Christos Gage spills the beans.
