After the big fights of the last few issues, this one as a bit of a ‘rest’ issue, as the team deals with the fallout of the battle against Hybrid, and also with the very idea of Avengers Academy. It was cool to see Jeremy Briggs return, and I think he’s a really interesting villain. That’s if he’s even a villain at all! Gage is cleverly keeping it ambiguous as to whether or not he’s on the level or an evil prick. It’s kind of like a mini version of what Norman Osborn is saying in Bendis’ books. He may be bad, but he does have a point. It was good to see the Avengers: Initiative characters like Cloud Nine show up again and have their say, this issue really showed that Marvel do have new characters, which goes against what a lot of industry doom-sayers suggest. The scene of the future at the end was a little confusing though, was that Hank Pym talking, or Jocasta? Hmmm… Next issue is a Runaways guest-spot, I’m very excited to see them again, and I hope that Gage writes them well, because a lot of the time anyone who isn’t BKV has struggled.
