The big changes from the Herioc Age continue to unfurl, as the first candidates to the Avengers Academy is shown. Who, what and where this team is coming from sounds new, and seems to be an attempt to reach out to the next generation of teens and tweens coming up the ranks. IGN has the preview.



I wanted to say something akin to " dawn of a new age of heroes" butt scans-daily has had an effect on me. Here is our introduction to Veil, one of the new kids.



At least it's not a dominatrix outfit, but I get the feeling it is a shameful second rate Angelo Espinosa, a.k.a. Skin of Generation X.




R.I.P., 'mano.

So, a goth version of Firestar's character premise? Dude, that got rather tedious the first time around.

Seems more like that Bandage character from Spider-Man Unlimited.

On that vein, I think there's one big point people are not seeing here. Training exercises. With Cap (or more aptly, Bucky!Cap).

Love that tied up hiney.

Yeah it really is. I just hope Cloud 9 makes the transfer or gets sent somewhere else nice. She's been really messed around with by the Initiative.

I'd MUCH rather they ditch the initiative/academy thing and just give us back the freakin' Young Avengers already.

Motto. I'm all for teen superheros, but doesn't Marvel already have at least two full teams they're not using? Though I guess there's an outside chance the YA team will show up in the 'academy' too.

Avengers Academy - filling the void left by Xavier's School since 2010.

Students be cautioned: Avengers alumni have been known to be brainwashed, paralyzed, lost in an alternate dimension, killed, and otherwise torn in half by the Sentry.

Okay, I'm officially a grouchy old fart now, because the prospect of yet another bunch of incidental teenage characters angsting over their powers and failing to be super heroes is the least exciting premise I can think of. The comparison with Gen X seems apt, as they'll go the way of the Dodo soon enough.
Somebody wake me once we find out what'll happen to the actual Avengers, i.e. the cast of Mighty.

Hey, Marvel. Thanks for doing an Avengers reboot of Academy X. I mean, it isn't like you don't have a team of younger, Avenger-like people running around without their own series or anything.

They should just do "Strange's Magic School" and get it out of the way.

I hate that she's pigeon-toed. For reasons that have everything to do with Young Hollywood (Paris Hilton, Scarlett Johanssen, Kristen Stewart), her entire character is telegraphed in that stance. And I don't like it. Bah, humbug.

To be fair, Avengers Academy is precisely what Tony should have been having ALL the Avengers organise the moment he got back from the trip to the past where he'd has his vision of heroes at war with each other, which was the justification he had for everything in Civil War (but which he had done flaming sod all to avert until the dead New Warriors conveniently presented themselves as handy scapegoats)

Costume aside, the Avengers have needed a better way to handle young-uns than Steve Rogers' pathetic "go home and come back when you're 18". That was dangerously irresponsible and potentially lethal on his part -- and what teenager would ever listen anyway? Good to see they're finally behaving repsonsibly.

Reminds me more of the "Fart in a suit" from Morrison's run on New X-men. They need the wrapping to keep themselves from disintegrating. Then again the unwrapped hands kinda disprove that. Ah whatever.

I still find it extremely annoying that they keep making characters after house of M. They make a big deal killing and depowering so many characters because there's "too many" just to make more. How are we supposed to enjoy new characters knowing they'll probably meet a terrible end when their book fails.

I'm sorry, what was wrong with the slew of characters introduced in Avengers Initiative?

Honestly, this is just a rewash of that title. I'm somewhat indifferent to it. We'll see how it plays out.

They've already been mostly ruined, that's what. Basically, none of the characters introduced in the Initiative are students anymore, because they got chucked off the cliff.

Those that managed to graduate are mentally scarred/half dead/being blackmailed by Osborn/have fled the country to get away from Osborn/were arrested by Osborn/were power-stripped/have fled to join the Resistance, those that didn't graduate are either power-stripped or dead, those in the Shadow Initiative are being used as cannon fodder, and the rest are all villains under the guise of learning to be heroes.

hmmm. i hope it isn't going to be all original (if not really original in any sense) characters in this revamp.

part of what i liked about initiative was a balance more heavily weighted towards existing b-z-listers getting a bit of the spotlight alongside the new kids.

more importantly, it was my fix of new warriors every month. i'd be sad to see that go.

watching with interest to see what develops from here.
