Does anibody like Avengers academy?

Posted by gui22 (383 posts) - - Show Bio

Since Marvel launched those previews of Avengers Academy everibody has been saying: "they look lame", "this is going to be bad", things like that...
I only have a question: Now that the issues are on the market do you love  or still hate them?

Initiative, I want you back!

The Avengers Academy was 'okay', it wasn't as good as I expected though.
The issue didn't really pull me in, some of the new characters were interesting. But I would have liked it if they included atleast one member of the team that was more well known or has been seen before .. other than a new cast of unknowns

@John Valentine: No comment on this one...
@Cherry Bomb: Like who?
#4 Posted by Cherry Bomb (3189 posts) - - Show Bio
@gui22:  I don't know, maybe Ultra Girl or Trauma or Diamondback. I don't know, anyone who has been seen before, but having an all new series will a new cast, it just seemed too 'uknown' to me and I couldn't really connect.

I've really enjoyed it so far.  I love the way that established characters feel like they've moved on & grown (take a hint Uncanny X-Men!!)

The characters in Avengers Academy have their own unique personalities and powers. sort of makes them cool!

I'm loving this book and Finess is amazing

The book is ok but I don't see myself liking to many of the characters.Finesse and Veil are cool but the rest of the characters are pretty lame.Why did they change Fortress's name to Mettle? That's the lamest superhero name ever.This book also reminds me every time that half the Initiative graduates and members are M.I.A with no mention of where they are...the New Warriors as well.

Finesse and Veil are also the ones that have had an entire issue almost completely dedicated to them, I'm assuming the others will as well so give them a chance

I don't even like the other character designs.Design is important to me.Reptyl has had an issue of Initiative dedicated to him so I will leave him out, but the rest of them..they come off to me just the way they are designed as characters I wouldn't like. I will give them a chance but I still can't help seeing them and thinking we already had some young heroes out there who we already know and have gotten to know every well over the last couple of events and now they are just M.I.A.

As long as Finesse's character continues to develop and if Justice stays I will continue reading this book.  (I don't find any of the other students interesting)

This is one of the best books Marve's putting out right now, in my opinion

Avengers Academy rocks!

I love Avengers Academy especially Mettle.

#18 Posted by digimod (239 posts) - - Show Bio

Couldn't stand it.  Too much teen Soap Opera Drama and not enough action.

#19 Posted by PrinceIMC (5421 posts) - - Show Bio

It's now Young Avengers or Avengers Initiative (before it got taken over by villains anyway) but I enjoy it.

I like it. One of Marvel's best titles.

I was reading it before Fear Itself. I stopped because I can't stand useless tie-ins. Will resume reading soon. Has anything significant happened since?

The Avengers Academy has become my favorite series coming out. I was skeptical at first, but I now recommend the book to everyone.

I like it, but i was genuinly angry when i read this mornings issue. not because of he story or anything but this one thing luke cage says. its just SO stereotypical muscle head black guy

{spoiler alert}

So when luke gets mad at striker for getting smart with cap, Mettle decks him, they scrap and get broken up by jocasta, and the kids walk away and for some some stupid reason toklen cage just has to say"My daddy would say ain't nothi wrong with those kids a few licks with a switch can't cure"...WTF? seriously? what, did they watch three hours of chris rock stand-up and feel like this would touch home base for the black folks? I hate the stereotyping in marvel its so insulting

I love this series but I still don't get how they got their powers...Striker? Mettle? Veil? I know Norman messed with them to escalate their power development but where did the powers come from? I'm probably the only one being driven insane by this.

Its kinda of a mystery,indeed.Theyre powers just turned on.But they're never adressed as mutants.Striker's powers activated when he was still young and Veil's in high school,I belive it's a genetic condition but nobody considers them Homo Superior.

I enjoy the series overall but I do think it has some problems it needs resolving. For instance a better explanation as to where their powers came from, it seems to be hinted at it's all from accidents from some science lab but we haven't had any progression in that department.

The book as of right now for the past few issues have been really underwhelming.
