    Gage uses The Fear Itself event to explore the many facets of Tigra. He spotlights her courage, her doubts, her origins, the many changes that defined her life all in one issue. Frequently her internal monologue conflicts with her dialogue, and these at-odds words add even more depth to the story and her characterization. Read Full Review

    In all, Avengers Academy is a book most people should read. It's full of great characters, excellent writing, and about the most consistent art you'll find from any series that's had a few artist changes over the course of the run. Read Full Review

    With the whole creative team firing on all cylinders, Avengers Academy may just be the strongest of the Fear Itself tie-ins alongside Journey Into Mystery. Hopefully that will convince a few more readers to check this book out. Read Full Review

    So overall, another strong effort and a solid start to this series. I think I prefer this book when it has a lighter tone - but there's plenty of room for serious stories, too. Read Full Review

    There are some good moments peppered throughout "Avengers Academy" #15 that try to rise above the melodrama and clichs inherent to the premise of young superheroes 'going off to war.' It's an entirely appropriate plot for a "Fear Itself" tie-in, but Gage's writing can't escape the inherent limitations. Like I said at the beginning of this review: competent yet unremarkable.
