It's Super Hero Prom and the Sinister Six in two big issues of the comic iFanboy named the "Best New Book of 2010"! First the Academy hosts a dance like none you've ever seen, guest starring the Young Allies, former members of the Initiative...and featuring smack downs and smooch downs! Then the trainees get a crash course in big-time villainy as they take on Spider-Man's greatest foes, the Sinister Six, in a story that will have major ramifications when FEAR ITSELF hits next month!

    cxPulp - Blake Petit May 7, 2011

    With the Young Allies and Initiative characters effectively homeless at the moment, I wouldnt at all mind seeing them join the extended family of this title. They fit in really nicely (especially Spider-Girl and Firestar) and feel like they serve a purpose in being here. Its such a simple book, but plotted and characterized masterfully. This is an issue virtually without fault. Read Full Review

    Comics Bulletin - Ray Tate May 6, 2011

    Mettle and Hazmat have a heart to heart, and it's just the right amount of pathos and comedy which later ends up visually as a raucous dance. Veil gets through to Striker, and the whole thing appears to end in a fight until, in homage to The Simpsons episode "Lard of the Dance," Speedball cuts loose, and the crowd goes wild.

    A Comic Book Blog - Geoff Arbuckle May 4, 2011

    I'm looking forward to seeing where this gang is headed now. There seems to be a lot of reconciliation among characters over the past couple issues. I can't wait to see how Gage handles new struggles from a more mature gang now that it moves beyond the individual insecurities. Read Full Review

    Weekly Comic Book Review - Dean Stell May 10, 2011

    Another strong issue of Avengers Academy. Considering that this is a B-list title and it is one year old, it says a lot that I've never once considered dropping it. It's been just that strong. Even though I think people make WAY too big of an issue of “jumping on points”, this is a pretty good issue for the uninitiated. Trust me, you'll like it. Read Full Review

    IGN - May 4, 2011

    This issue does veer a little too far into the silly direction at times. It's also a surprisingly chaste, even family-friendly account of a teenage prom, with only the adults guilty of any real funny business. But again, it's an enjoyable little side adventure for the team that leaves just about everyone in a stronger place than they started in. What more could a fan hope for? Read Full Review

    X-Man's Comic Blog - x-man75 May 7, 2011

    This issue was 80-pages long, and was WAY better than the JLA 80-page giant I read a few weeks back. So that's the good. The bad? This comic was $8!!! I was thisclose to not picking this one up, but my obsessive collecting got the better of me, and I did(obviously) decide to give this comic a shot. I wasn't expecting anything from this comic(especially when I realized Arcade was the main villain!), but it told a good little one and done story. Will I remember it a month from now? No, probably not, but it was a fine way to spend a couple of minutes. Read Full Review

    The Weekly Crisis - Kirk Warren May 7, 2011

    Everything was quite accessible and it was an fun and entertaining done in one story that has me contemplating picking up the next issue. If you've got a few extra dollars in the budget this week, consider picking this issue up. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Resources - Greg McElhatton May 4, 2011

    Do people even still scream "Food fight!" and shove a slice of cake in someone else's cake? Like so much in this comic, it feels forced and from a different genre entirely. "Avengers Academy" from the previous twelve issues? Come back, you're missed. This issue felt like a refugee from a different comic entirely. Read Full Review
