Avengers Academy #29 (Naked Hercules Spoilers)

Postby Punchy » Fri May 04, 2012 12:55 pm

The shocking events of AvX impact the Avengers Academy, and things are surprisingly civil. The X-Kids from Utopia, including the cast of Generation Hope and a few other notables like Dust, are taken to the Academy not as prisoners, but just so they can be kept out of the war. Hercules tries to keep things light and attempts to set up a bit of friendly athletic competition, but with the likes of Surge and X23 around, that’s not going to happen. I was most interested in this issue by what was going on with Sebastian Shaw. His membership of Generation Hope was left as a dangling plot point when that book was cancelled, and it was great to see that explored here. That final page with the homage to the original Dark Phoenix arc was just brilliant, it sent shivers down my fanboy spine, especially since Tom Grummet’s art resembles John Byrne’s so closely. This was a good issue, but I think the real Avengers Vs X-Men hasn’t even begun yet when it comes to this title, it’s been peaceful so far, but that won’t last for long. Oh yeah, and Amadeus Cho got a mention, when’s he going to show up again? I miss that little psycho.
