sifighter's Avengers Arena #13 - The Devil's Greatest Trick review

Avengers Arena 13 review, from Arena to Academy

This series is a perfect example of how to take a villain who is normally seen as joke and turning him into a serious threat that puts him up there with people like Red Skull. This issue shows not only that he can kidnap16 people from the avengers, x-men, and etc but also can cover his tracks so that no one even knows he did it. Arcade is an evil mastermind, making it look completely plausible that these 16 people disappear at the same time, this is basically turning bozo the clown into Jigsaw. As for the rest of this issue it kind of feels like a lost issue of Avengers Academy, and that is not a bad thing. It's really great seeing these characters again although the light tone of this series really does make it more depressing knowing what this series is really about. After this issue its on to the final arc of this series, and I can't wait for the next issue. Arcade better gets what coming to him.

It's a full issue long explanation of why nobody has no...
