One of my favourite movies, and I’m not just talking about kid’s movies or cartoons, but movies as a whole, is Brad Bird’s ‘The Iron Giant’, it’s a great film, and it never fails to make me cry buckets. This issue, which heavily focuses on Juston and his Sentinel, reminded me a lot of that movie, and whilst I wasn’t quite reduced to tears here, it was still an excellent comic and one with real emotional heft. The main story was the continuation of Phoenix-Emma trying to destroy the Sentinel, and the Avengers Academy fighting her off. I thought it was very interesting how this issue turned into somewhat of a character-focus on Quicksilver, and sort of redeemed him. He’s been a massive prick for so long that you kind of forget that he’s a hero, and seeing him, a mutant, save the ‘life’ of a Sentinel was a great moment, even if he was still trying to be mean. Timothy Green’s art was once again very good, although I did feel it was a bit on the nose that the Sentinel’s core-processor (or whatever) looked exactly like a heart, but then that may not have been his call. The issue ends on a shocking note, as Giant-Man and Tigra decide to close the Academy, I really like this, it means the crossover has had a real impact, and I really don’t know what to expect from the next few issues. Do we know if this book is continuing during Marvel NOW!? Could this be a devastating finale?

Yeah Punchy, you do know the books has been solicited during the Marvel Now stuff right?

Other than that, I completely agree and really love what Gage has been doing with Laura.

No, don't destroy the mutant killing Sentinel! A kid with serious abandonment issues needs him instead of therapy!

This is the same Sentinel from the Tsunami series right? Really liked that book.

Yep, it's the McKeever character.
