Fear Itself: Youth in Revolt #1
Much like the Avenger's Academy book, our cast here is padded with more than a few Initiative escapees and the shadow of that title hangs heavy over Youth in Revolt. While I still have no idea why Cap is assembling all the heroes (Aside from 'everyone is scared' but that can't be it right?) I understand their reluctance to be assembled after the last time they all ended up under one roof due to lingering Civil War grudges. They've mostly gone by now which is necessary for the telling of stories but still feels hastily swept away all this time later, which shows just how much scope there was in the CW concept that nobody ever decided to explore when they could show people punching each other. Where was I? Oh yeah. Youth in Revolt, while lacking the amount of Michael Cera I have come to associate with the name did come with enough event-baggage from the last few years to render it fairly unreadable to the casual passer-by despite featuring characters who were once supposed by be aimed at said casual individuals (I think? Wasn't Gravity meant to be all friendly for new folks?) so I'm not sure who this was for. Feels a lot like Sean McKeever was given an editorial mandate and told to run with it which worked soooo well on Teen Titans if I remember rightly. (Seriously, I have blocked out most of that run from my brain). It feels like a waste of talent and ink. Also Mike Norton is involved. He certainly does draw people doing things. Yup.
I feel like I overused my namesake score lately, but honestly this was a comic with no reason to exist weighed down by way too much obscurity to interest me and it came close. The one point is because I really liked Sentinel.
