Avengers Academy #23 (Putting the B in LGBT spoilers)

Postby Punchy » Fri Dec 16, 2011 10:32 am

So thanks to Avengers Academy, I’ve now learned that paedophilia is wrong and that it’s OK to be gay or bi-sexual! Thanks Avengers Academy! Man, did that scene between Striker and Julie Power read like an after-school special, pretty clunky stuff. But there was more here than just that. I really liked the introduction of X-23 to the team, she’s a character I don’t know much about, but she meshes well with the rest of the team and hell, hopefully she’ll increase sales so the book isn’t cancelled. The Future-Reptil stuff was pretty good too, I liked how Gage slowly and subtly dropped hints about the dark future he’s using, there’s plenty of mystery around it, especially when it comes to Finesse, and what the hell is the deal with Hybrid? Why does he need to be on the team? Raney drew that perfectly by the way, so fucking creepy.

agreed. the actual plot stuff was intriguing, but the character moments here, which have been Gage's strong suit throughout his book, just really came off as ham-fisted and clunky. "after-school special" is exactly how i'd describe it too.

God, Gage mined the past for Hybrid. He was a ROM villain.

Are you telling yourself to fuck off?

Isn't that somewhat masturbatory of you?
