I just started reading them as a Fear Itself tie-in and was really drawn into these characters. Definitely gonna go back and collect the TPBs and put it on my weekly pull list.

@Atomic_Punk: The 1st volume is available in both HC and TPB. The 2nd Volume is only in HC at the moment but the TPB is coming out either December or early January.

I'm glad you like it!

@lykopis: Glad you're on board! I will tell you that the earlier issues are weaker than what the series becomes, as it's laying out the groundwork for the 6 main cast members and leaves them with their flaws first. But it becomes much better once the introductions are out of the way by issue 6. Also, yeah, the earlier issues suffer from some pop culture references, but they drop that after a while.

But welcome on board! (And it was 21 onwards, which comes out Wed.)

Thanks so much - I will prepare myself, and thanks for the background information and clarification. :)

@lykopis: No problem! Just giving you the heads up! (Also, Hazmat will start as one of your most hated characters to become your favorite. You'll see!)

So I am guessing that this White Tiger is not Angela Del Toro. Unless she gets a new costume but I thought she was older.

There's gonna be an upcoming Avengers Academy vs Jean Grey's School for Higher Learning, excited for that.

OMG. You have made my day!

@lykopis said:

I just read through this thread, I have to say - you convinced me to go out tomorrow and pick up this book. I will go back to #1 (although you all are saying #20 onwards is good enough), but just wanted to let you know - great job in exposing this team's virtues. Better be as good as you all say! :)

I absolutely love it O.O It grows on you, and the characters become VERY personal over time...

SOOOOOO TRUE. I hated at first, but now she is my favourite on the team :)

@ComicMan24: New character, same legacy.

@lykopis: Can't wait!

@Hawkeye446: She really has grown on a lot of people.

@luckydomino1: More then ever, try it this Wed. It is a new beginning!

#63 Posted by TheOptimist (713 posts) - - Show Bio

@Cafeterialoca: You know what? I'm going to take your advice. I love your enthusiasm, your articulated passion for the characters and their potential... bravo, way to make a sales pitch. I'll try it out, I hope I like it!

@TheOptimist: Thanks! I hope you do like it!

I'll get psyched when they change the name back to Avengers Initiative and bring back the graduated members.

@luckydomino1: It is unsure. She isn't dying anymore like she was at the start of the series, but she will become ghost like if not stopped. She quit the Academy last issue and joined Jeremy Brigs, the Alchemist and possible villain who might be able to cure her. Again, it's uncertain.

Also, the Academy was too much for her when she took lives during a fight in Fear Itself.

#68 Posted by Cafeterialoca (1503 posts) - - Show Bio

@Vance Astro: Sorry. But the Initiative ended with Fear Itself. Though Butterball and Batwing are joining again, what's not to say more Initiative folk won't come back down the line?

@luckydomino1: HA HA! I'm glad you're excited! Again, the series starts a bit weak, but it becomes a lot better the more it progresses.

#75 Posted by Cafeterialoca (1503 posts) - - Show Bio

@luckydomino1: $2.99. Like every comic.

Also, the early reviews say good things.

@luckydomino1: Oh, don't blow all your cash if you can't afford it! There are trades out, but if you can't afford it, I don't want to force you into anything. Just try the issue tomorrow. Also, if you go on the Comic Book Resources forum on the Avengers Academy threads, you're VERY likely to come across the writer Christos Gage and talk directly to him about this book!
