Good:  Then first part was good it was telling the story through Striker's point of view. I showed his childhood drama with his mother. I also tells why is what he is now. Bad: The art work was terrible I just didn't like it. Second how can Veil go from liking Justice to liking Strike then back to liking Justice in the next issue. 3.5/5: I like the Avengers Academy series. I also liked the work Christos Gage is doing. But the artwork made me look to other way about it....
