    The Weekly Crisis - Ryan Schrodt Jul 19, 2010

    The first issue of Avengers Academy really blew my away with his quality craftsmanship, especially the strength of Christos Gage's new characters. This second issue shows that the first was definitely not a fluke as he builds upon all of the strengths of the first issue and throws in a slew of new twists as he focuses on Finesse. When you add in another strong effort from Mike McKone, you have a comic that you'd be insane not to buy. Read Full Review

    Finesse, the young polymath wants to know as much as possible about the Avengers and their history as possible to better herself. And she is prepared to blackmail Quicksilver to achieve her ends. Will that succeed? First, the only interesting character here, besides the older Avengers is Finesse. Shes interesting and not a redundant heroine who will probably cease to be in a few year. Im hoping she turns into a major villainess or attempt to. However, he angle was already explored in the Justice Society with the character of King Chimera, an equally smart young kid who wanted to get as much knowledge as possible out of the older heroes. Yet, here, shes looking for specific information on Magneto and the Brotherhood of evil mutants. As if there was something to learn by being evil. She should just move in with the X-Men and be done with it! I like the visuals in this story. They are very strong. I wasnt sure about whether to keep this series in my pull list, but I want o see what Finess Read Full Review

    This is a very solid issue, and honestly, the best out of the four Heroic Age Avengers ongoings that launched last month. I really look forward to more of this creative team and these characters. Read Full Review

    Mike McKone impresses once more with his detailed, precise pencils. Though the setting remains largely fixed, McKone is able to stretch his muscles a fair bit with a large cast. I'm still iffy on certain costume designs, but aside from that the series is very easy on the eyes. As long as Gage and McKone keep firing at this level I'm hopeful Avengers Academy has a bright future ahead of it. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Resources - Timothy Callahan Jul 17, 2010

    "Avengers Academy" may have replaced "Avengers: The Initiative" on the publishing schedule, but it's a better comic, with a stronger cast of characters from the beginning and the incisive dialogue of Christos Gage matched with the chiseled artwork of Mike McKone. This is one of the good ones, in a season when Marvel has had more than its share. Read Full Review
