Avengers Academy #31 (Let's go with feet Spoilers)

Avengers Academy continues to subvert my expectations for what an AvX tie-in in this title would be. So yes, while this issue does feature the two sides finally coming to blows, it’s a fake fight, one designed to let the X-Kids go without pissing off Captain America and Wolverine. This was very clever writing from Christos Gage, as it showed that while these characters may be rash and stupid at times because of their youth, it also highlighted one of the benefits of being young, in that you’re less entrenched in your views, more willing to change your mind about things, because you’ve not grown up yet. It says a lot about how stubborn Cap and Cyclops are being that these dumb kids could do what they couldn’t. Gage also surprised me with the way he used Sebastian Shaw in this issue, I had thought for sure that he remembered who he was and returned to his evil ways, but no, he was still on the side of the X-Kids. These days you’re very rarely surprised by superhero comics, so Gage deserves a lot of praise for managing to do so regularly, one of the real advantages of using new characters.
