Avengers Academy #13

It was decent. However, it was not mailed to my home like my telepathic messages requested. Therefore, it sucked.

A perfect 10 for addressing a past plot line from Avengers: The Initiative in the background. :lol: This is a really great book.

This is sitting alongside a 4 star review for FI#2. What are they drinking over at CBR?

McKeever is known to lurk around here.

We could also probably get the Moriarty writer Daniel Corey) to do some sort of Q and A. We already interviewed him once.

My good friend can answer that....

I'm not going to wait (circa) 20 weeks per pick to waste it on a book that may not even get a composite score of 4, due to the fact that the majority of us are sick of Geoff Johns.

Avengers Academy #13

I love this book, I love this book a lot. I love the cast of the book and the characterizations of all the stars in the book. I enjoy seeing Speedball finally getting back to himself and teen heroes acting like actual teenagers.

The nod to a few stories from Initiative is an extremely good touch and seeing Hank dealing with what the skrull version of him did is extremely well done. it's nice seeing all the relationships and all the baggage they have to deal with handled extremely well.

All in all I happily give the book a 9, fun comics are awesome.

Yeah, I still haven't been to the comic book store yet. I had plenty of opportunities to go, but I didn't. Why? Because I'm a rebel, that's why. :band

Barnes and Noble will likely carry Mega Man.

Avengers Academy #13

When I bought the first issue of this book I was not thrilled at all but I'm so glad I stuck it out. This is one of Marvel's best series out and THE best Avengers book in their Pantheon at the moment. That being said, this issue on its own gives another outstanding job of developing these characters into real individuals while maintaining some fun paced stories. The fact that Pym is getting it on again with Tigra was perfect and Firestar and Justice's moment was hilarious. This was the right change of pace in the ongoing struggle of these young, possible future Avengers.

If there was one Marvel book that I would refuse to give up right now, this would be it.

Story: 10
Art: 9
My Score: 9.60
