Sorry, but I thought this sucked... ASS!

guy... there has been one issue so far. I don't think you get to decide if it is devoid of commentary or not.

If I'm wrong, I'll be the first to say it. How's that?

I can understand you not liking it, but the worst comic of the year? There are other comics that deserve that award far more than Avengers Arena #1.

STOP CALLING AVENGERS ARENA AVENGERS ACADEMY!!!
Seriously! Why is everyone on the fucking internet doing that?!


I think the thing that is killing me THE MOST about this series is actually just Reptil.

Like… Why did you have to put REPTIL in there?

He, out of ALL of the kids in there, had THE MOST FUCKING POTENTIAL OUT OF ALL OF THEM!

He could have joined ANY FUCKING TEAM coz he was READY to join any fucking team.

HE WAS IN THE INITIATIVE, LEAST WE FORGET!

He could have BEEN something.

And now he’s gonna be dead.

Because let’s face it; the likelihood of any of those kids surviving is zero, least of all ACADEMY kids.


so. i hope i’m not the only one who cried in public when they read the first issue of Avengers Arena.


So I read Avengers Arena 1 because I thought

Meh maybe I wont hate this too much

METTLE FUCKING DIES IN THE FIRST ISSUE

JUST LIKE THAT

IN A SPLIT FUCKING SECOND?

:/

I honestly feel like crying?

Like…this is actually pretty upsetting

Wow……


DC broke my heart with the New 52.

I took the pieces and gave them to Marvel.

Marvel released Avengers Arena.

Fuck this, let’s read independent comics.

Sounds like you don't agree with the tumblr assessment that he is the greatest new teen hero right Ned to when DC gave us Bunker and the other Lobdell Titan's.

who I can't even remember what they look like much less their names.

I read AA for a while, I thought it was a strong book but I never really got into it that much. I know some people here REALLY liked it and often said it was the best Avengers book on the stand.

Mettle just wasn't interesting to me, I mean you had Reptil, taskmaster's daughter, the lightning kid and hazmat who were all fairly interesting, and then you had Mettle who was like a really boring version of Collossus.

The lightning kid being Princess Python's son was still cooler than Mettle.

if i’m really being honest with myself while I really want the deaths of avengers arena to be retconned what I really need is for hank pym to come find the island and beat the shit out of arcade while tigra and company get the kids off

like, not even being science about it

he just needs to smash arcade into pulp until his knuckles are bleeding

that shit is not cool on his watch


wait mark waid made the whole idea for avengers arena????

mark “i hate how dark comics have gotten” waid????

whose comics are mostly fun????

what the fuck man????

Looks like these crazy posts are actually drying up now, because now that people have read the comic, rather than seen spoilers out of context, they've seen that it's a pretty fucking good read.

There's lots of 'You know, this isn't bad' Tumblr posts now.

So, there's a lesson for all you dweebs, wait until a comic actually comes out before flipping your bi-curious wigs over it.
