    Yes, the series hasn't come to its conclusion yet, but the issues on the horizon seem to be more fun and light in comparison to the last few arcs. This arc, in particular leaves a lot of questions for these young heroes. Veil is gone. Finesse, despite really doing something bad for the good of everyone, has killed someone. The students seem to be on an unclear path. This is how I would have liked to have seen the end of the series do. These kids came to Avengers Academy under the idea that they had a rough road ahead of them. While they were still taught what they needed to learn to grow into a solid group of young heroes, this arc doesn't have them being lifted up over peoples' shoulders in appreciation for their deeds. Instead, they are left with the same uncertainty the instructors had when they were brought to the school. Read Full Review

    With only one short arc remaining, I've given up hope of Gage completely wrapping up the series' various loose ends. Still, rather than rush to the finish, Gage is content to deliver more of the same quality characterization and plot twists that have made this series such a worthwhile read for the past two-and-a-half years.

    Comic Book Revolution - Kevin Sep 26, 2012

    Avengers Academy #37 is a big, fun end to the Final Exam story arc. Gage and Grummett combine to deliver a comic that is not only fun but is filled with great character moments that push all the kids of the Avengers Academy forward. Getting to see how far each character has come and the choices they make even in mid-battle is what makes this series special. We still don't fully know which characters will become heroes or villains in the end. What is known is that this is not only the best Avengers book but one of Marvels strongest series on the market on a monthly basis. Read Full Review

    I hate to say it, but this was a pretty underwhelming comic...  I mean I had been enjoying this storyline up to this issue, but for whatever reason this issue just didn't do it for me.  The final battle never really felt in doubt, and the ending wrapped up too neatly for my tastes.  Plus I didn't like Briggs dying...  He seemed to be a character who could have become something...  On top of that, who dies in a comic book by slowly bleeding to death?!  I did like the fact that Finesse let Briggs die, simply because it was in character for her.  I can't help but wonder if Christos Gage had to rush things along here due to the impending end of this series, because this storyline easily could have used another two issues.  Eh, they can't all be gold, I guess.
