    Issue #31 is just another example of why Avengers Academy is one of Marvel's best books. Fact. Read Full Review

    A Comic Book Blog - Geoff Arbuckle Jun 6, 2012

    If you're already a fan of this particularly interesting group of Avengers Academy players, then it's no doubt you will enjoy these last two issues quite a bit. You have the kids continuing to learn about what's right and mature. You have the overarching idea of giving people a second chance at doing some good. You even have a good deal of comedy from Hercules. All of it is nicely illustrated by Tom Grummett and is one of the few books on the shelves that entertains with each and every issue.

    IGN - Jesse Schedeen Jun 6, 2012

    It doesn't appear as though this series is leaving behind AvX just yet, but if Gage has proven anything on this series, it's that he knows how to make the most of tie-in arcs. Read Full Review

    And as usual, the acidic Hazmat has the best summation of the crux of the problem: Read Full Review

    Entertainment Fuse - Eric "djotaku" Mesa Jun 8, 2012

    While this issue is nothing special, it is some of the best writing in the Avengers vs X-Men (behind Wolverine and the X-Men and New Avengers). Gage gives a good mix of humor and drama. While I have found some of the kid's dialog and actions to be slightly off, it's no better or worse than the way young people are usually portrayed in comics. I don't normally give shoutouts to the colorists, but Chris Sotomayor does a great job here. It matches the tone really well and the nice clean colors really work. The difference in the tones from most of the book to the last page work really well.If you've been reading the series - there's no reason not to pick this issue up. It wraps up nicely in a not-so-predictable way. You might see the ending coming, but the way they get there is pretty fun. If you haven't been reading, this issue is not a good jumping on point. Wait for the next issue. Read Full Review

    Major Spoilers - Matthew Peterson Jun 11, 2012

    All in all, while it's not a bad issue, it's certainly not an essential one. The characters whose title it is are side-tracked and over-whelmed by guest-stars, with core members Stryker and Mettle little more than cameoing in this issue, playing second fiddle to Hercules (which is understandable) and that naked blue girl from Generation Hope (which just flat isn't.) I'd rather have read an issue that was actually ABOUT these characters, rather than just happening around them, and the inappropriateness of the art to the story becomes more obvious with each page. Avengers Academy #31 suffers most in comparison to earlier issues of the title, coming across as talky, while sidelining the characters from the story (which you'll only find by reading AvX) earning a disappointed 2 out of 5 stars overall.
