    Comics Bulletin - Ray Tate Mar 4, 2011

    So, in summary, Gage reinforces Hank's newfound sanity and heroism while using a continuity fixer-upper to try to give Hazmat a respite from her condition. At the same time, Gage convinces me that Leech is actually worth getting to know and instills even more curiosity in the new FF title. These moves and the willingness of everyone to help grant greater cohesiveness to the Marvel universe. Once again, Christos Gage builds on the foundation of the Heroic Age. This is why I'm making mine Marvel. Read Full Review

    A Comic Book Blog - Geoff Arbuckle Mar 6, 2011

    Really the only thing that is misleading about this issue is the cover. We're kinda led to believe that this is going to be a whacky, magical issue with Dr. Strange coming in and doing a bunch of tricks and stuff. The magic class referred to on the cover is featured in all of one single panel. At first, I thought, “Oh cool, we get some magic monsters for the kids to deal with.” Then, I realized I was putting too much attention on the cover because what I got, instead, was another wonderful character study for two characters (one of which, Speedball, Gage has really made his own with this series and the last few issues of Avengers: The Initiative) that shows us how beautiful life really can be.

    The Weekly Crisis - Ryan Schrodt Mar 9, 2011

    Are you reading Avengers Academy? No? Why not? Seriously, this is the best comic that Marvel is currently releasing and probably the best comic that they have released in years. You need to read this book, including this issue. Seriously, go buy it right now. You won't regret it. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Resources - Greg McElhatton Mar 2, 2011

    "Avengers Academy" continues to be a solid, entertaining book month in and month out; for a comic anchored by six brand-new (or relatively new) characters, that's not an easy feat. Hopefully class will stay in session for some time. Read Full Review

    IGN - Mar 2, 2011

    Sean Chen fills in with this issue before Tom Raney takes over as permanent artist. Chen's style is lightly modified to fit in with Mike McKone's look, offering somewhat thicker lines and heavier blacks. It lacks the slick quality of McKone's pencils, but Chen proves he'll work perfectly well as an occasional guest artist. Read Full Review

    Another Fantastic issue by Gage and I think I finally understand Hazmat. Also Leech makes an appearance from Jonathan Hickman’s Fantastic Four run (My second favorite comic run ever). Too bad the cover was a bluff and their isn’t much magic
