We've been getting promos for Avengers Academy members at a rate of one-a-day, so far. But today.... today today today... Marvel has started escalation and ramped up the frequency, revealing no less than two heroines enrolled in the AA (not to be confused with that other AA) - - Finesse and Hazmat - - and both of them are just as cute as argyle-printed buttons. Right above, we have Finesse, who seems to have patterned her mantra off of that enduring song about the War of the Sexes -- "Anything you can do, I can do better. Sooner or later, I'm greater than you..." and so on. I'm going to put it out there that somewhere, anywhere, in the Marvel Universe she absolutely, positively, must have a sidekick named Style. C'mon... Style & Finesse. They go better together than peas & carrots, than Hawk and Dove, than Sachs and Violens!
The other debutante today is the radiation-themed Hazmat, whose outfit reminds me of Beatrix Kiddo the Bride, G-Force and an Evangelion jumpsuit in all the right ways. These two are, of course, joining Fortress, Striker, Reptil, and Veil, bringing the Avengers Academy line-up to six in total. Do you think that's all of them, oh tally-taking Comic Vine community? Do you think there are more heroes yet to be revealed? And what do you think of these fresh faces so far?
