Story: 4 - Very Good
Art: 2 - Average


  1. It was good, better than I thought it would be. I feel a bit sorry for the X-kids thrown into a prison for not doing anything and I’m not really surprised at how Cap tried to say it was for their own good. In every event at least one character gets trashed and so far Cap is the character for this one.

      I disagree I felt like Cap is actually being reasonable. I’m the biggest X-fan you can find but I tend to agree with what Cap’s doing and taking the kids to avengers academy seems to be the best. Though right now I sympathize most with Wolverine

      I think the X-men in general at least the Utopia side are being made out as extremists and villains which would be a interresting arc if some of though *cough*cyclops*cough* were becoming extremists but others were against their….zealous leader. But no its sheep with sheapard when it comes to cyclops and his team. I hope that AvX gets better as it slowly is but I think its a bad situation for everyone but Cap is relatively reasonable as he really does want to save Hope from the Phoenix his top priority is stopping the phoenix without hurting hope which is what it should be,

      But thats neither here nor there when talking about Avengers Academy lol

  2. The Academy might as well be a prison for the kids. Surge said it best, it’s candy coated and Gage is putting a soft spin on it, but it’s a prison for them.

      I agree that it is a prison but seriously what would you have the avengers do? and Gage isn’t making it soft hes putting the books signature style on it its wrong and he took time to point that out but he also gave wolverine time to explain why they were doing it. Its a bad situation for everyone and I think that it was well represented from both sides

  3. But part of the plot is that Cap told the Academy students to be wardens of the X-kids, to be the guards. Why couldn’t they have left the kids in Utopia? Was the place smashed that badly? I’m looking forward to seeing how this plays out but if at the end of it at least some of the X-kids don’t have some serious anger issues with Cap and the Avengers I’ll be disappointed. Their kids who have been ripped from their home. Surge and Velocidad are right to be angry and I’m surprised the others are so passive.
