    Whew, that was A LOT to take in! Let's see, for starters, this series is awesome. The addition of Hawkeye and the new students? If there was a word past awesome, that would be what this series is now. Seriously, there is no flaw in this series... The characterizations are perfect, the art is great, the writing is topnotch, this has to be the most complete series I read. So going forward we have the “murder” investigation surrounding Jocasta, the real Reptil being trapped in the future while his evil future self tries to take advantage of the confusion surrounding Jocasta's “death”, new students AND Hawkeye!!! In other words, the future looks GREAT. This is a fantastic jumping on point for any comic fans who haven't yet given this series a chance... It's only $2.99 and it's worth every single penny.

    With this new era beginning for the series, Christos Gage and Sean Chen now has a new setting, a new cast of characters, and a great start to this second phase of the book. And the decision to start it with a really cool mystery and all too familiar villains was definitely a wise decision. Read Full Review

    Weekly Comic Book Review - Dean Stell Nov 5, 2011

    It's a shame this series doesn't have higher sales because it was been consistent quality since issue #1. This is a pretty decent place to hop on as the Academy is starting a new direction and I'm sure it'll be awesome. Read Full Review

    As a jumping-on point, this certainly works. It's kicking off a major storyline, it's settling the cast into a new status quo, and it's bringing in both old favorites and new characters. "Avengers Academy" is one of Marvel's most consistently enjoyable titles, and if this issue is anything to go by, it's going to stay that way well into the future. Read Full Review

    Avengers Academy doesn't ease perfectly into the post-Fear Itself landscape, but it shows plenty of promise. Seasoned readers will sympathize with the main cast, feeling mistrustful and wary of the new characters and what they'll bring to the series. It's up to Gage to bring the magic all over again.

    Major Spoilers - Matthew Peterson Nov 5, 2011

    A lot of the character work this issue is very nicely handled, especially the awkward not-quite-sex scene and Finesse's obvious dismay at Julie's new role as Quicksilver's assistant, but the new characters barely get any dialogue and no character, reminding me of the old 'Defenders For A Day' storyline.
