It’s Super Hero Prom and the Sinister Six in two big issues of the comic iFanboy named the “Best New Book of 2010”!

First the Academy hosts a dance like none you’ve ever seen, guest starring the Young Allies, former members of the Initiative…and featuring smack downs and smooch downs!

Then the trainees get a crash course in big-time villainy as they take on Spider-Man’s greatest foes, the Sinister Six, in a story that will have major ramifications when FEAR ITSELF hits next month!

  1. When did iFanboy name this book such a thing?

  2. @ScorpionMasada  

    I am wondering this as well. I figured that title either went to The Sixth Gun on X-Force.

  3. I don’t normally pick up Avengers Academy, but I don’t think I can resist the prom issue.

  4. Avengers Academy has been consistently the best book every week when it comes out. Definitely worth a chance if you haven’t already given it one.

  5. @ScorpionMasada  @CloudControl  Here.

  6. I hop on and off this book. It didn’t really knocked my socks off initially, but i picked up the last issue drawn by Chen and was severely impressed. Can’t stand Raney, so I guess whenever he’s not around i’m in!

  7. I think this is the only 2.99 book I’m getting from Marvel this week.

  8. Cool.

    I was wondering when this happened since I don’t think any of the iFanboy big three read it.

    I love this book.

  9. I’m happy to see the Hazmat and Mettle dynamic is going to be continued.

  10. I really hate striker…no really I hate him.

  11. Love this book so much. I just want to hug it forever. It really is the closest thing to a classic Avengers book. It has the action, soapy drama, the self doubt and problems. It’s so great.

  12. Wow I between this and young avengers I really get my fill of teen superhero drama. And I love it

  13. I love this book with the exception fo the last two isses ( Korvac crap)..hopefully this is better.

  14. Love this book. I’m really enjoying Hazmat and Mettle. And I could always use more Tigra.

  15. Another fun issue. At times it was a bit jumpy but on the whole enjoyable.

  16. love these in between arc issues                           

  17. I absolutely loved this issue, with the little dig at the X-Men and also the stuff going on in the background while Tigra and Pym are talkin’ in the party.  Hilarious stuff.

  18. Fun times. I really want to like this book, and this issue was a big step towards that. Love those softball issues where they reallyj ust let the characters bounce off each other.

  19. Best book ever.

  20. Man, this is like the worst comic I’ve read this year and I like this series.

  21. This was my pick of the week and probably my favorite issue of this series so far.

  22. better then last two issues by a mile..my pick !!

  23. I love this series for its character development, but this issue might have gone a little bit overboard with the touchy feely stuff…but I still loved it! I admire AA for letting us get to know the characters – I always feel very connected and invested in the characters (and I thought I’d haaaate Reptil) – but I think it’s time for a big, epic, smash ’em, bash ’em story arc just to keep them on their toes and to move them forward as heroes a bit. Then they can lick their wounds and talk about their feelings some more. (But not for 7.99, please.)

  24. My God I loved this issue.
