This is a really well-done book. In a week with four, count ‘em, *four* X-Men titles out — including two…Read full review and comments
And for the why -- New Avengers is the team I started reading Avengers for. Disassembled was the first Avengers story I read. I cannot bring myself to care about the five white guys who started Avengers unless they are being secret boyfriends on an Asgardian camping trip -- and, even then, I skip all the bits with Thor, who is the most uninteresting-to-me Avenger in the history of ever. Hank Pym is more interesting than that guy, and I kinda think Pym should be put up against a wall and shot. New Avengers has the only Avengers I want to read about-- Jess, Carol, Jess, and Luke, with side commentary from Peter.
Avengers Academy is my second pick because it's got diversity and all the smaller, side characters that make the Marvel U interesting
The following are not MY favorites, they are the favorites of my kids:
Beasts of Burden
Franklin Richards, Lab Brat
Angel's Wing / Wing of Angels
Disney Princess manga adaptations.
Scarlet Witch, no contest.
1. She's extremely self-absorbed, so much so that she qualifies as not-sane.
2. She has a will strong enough to reshape reality and have it last a VERY long time.
3. She knows what she wants.
4. Her powers read the script!
Wanda would banish Zatanna, get Clint back, and have kids. Whether Clint wanted them or not. (He wouldn't remember ever not wanting them, you understand.) If Zatanna showed up again, she'd probably end up as their nanny.
Oooh, Umbrella Academy: Dallas tpb!
I'm helping somone move this week, and it's going fine.
