The second arc of Avengers Academy’s AvX tie-in begins, and the focus here is on two (well, three really) characters who aren’t part of the main team, X-23 and Juston and his Sentinel. It makes sense that Sentinel would play a big part in this event, it’s a member of the Avengers who fights alongside the mutant equivalent of a Nazi Stormtrooper. It made sense to use X-23 as a foil for the big robot, not only is she a mutant, but she is similar in that she was created to be a killing machine. I really like what Gage is doing with X-23, she’s a character I never really cared about previously, but she’s very interesting now. To complicate matters, a Phoenixed-up Emma Frost shows up to try and destroy the Sentinel too. Phoenix-Emma was pretty awesome, she’s still the same bitchy person, but with a much scarier, cosmic edge, it’s going to be fun to see her fight the Academy next issue. The art here was from Timothy Green II, who I’ve been a fan of since Annihilation: Conquest – Star-Lord, and while his work is a little less angular here than there or in the recent Animal Man Annual, it makes sense, this is a much more mainstream title, it’s good to see an artist adjust their style.
