Greetings True Believers!

AA is quickly becoming one of my favorite Marvel books.

Angst! Generational conflict! Hawkeye joins the staff!


Hazmat, Finesse, Mettle, Reptil and Striker are worried about the new students at AA. They think they're about to get canned. So when Pym, Cap and Cage call them over for a talk, it doesn't go well.

Fight scene is fighty.

Jocasta breaks them all up and tells the teachers they're being insensitive. Cap assures the crew they're not being replaced.

Hazmat and Mettle retire to her quarters where they try to snu-snu.

Later, everyone hugs it out.

The new faces are student-teacher Lightspeed and the new White Tiger.

I like this book.

I was under the impression that Hazmat was referring to the Double Rainbow meme.

But it's also used in the context of someone being "as queer as a Double Rainbow".

And with all of the rumors of Julie's sexuality, that line just rubbed me the wrong way.

How odd. I'd never heard that before, and Googling it either shows up as references to the meme or the Urban Dictionary page, which is several entries concerning Nathan Fillion attempting to popularize it as a slang term for "joyfully amazing" and one concerning homosexuality.

I have to imagine Gage was referencing the meme, but you're welcome to ask him.

The Urban Dictionary entry has a couple more definitions that concern homosexuality on the second page, not as many as the meme. but it's still used in a derogatory manner to queer people.

It could just be a coincidence and Gage didn't intend it to be offensive. But even if the intent wasn't there I still find it annoying.
