    Arcade contrasts the Young Allies and the Cadettes. Whereas they emanate youth, Arcade issues decay. His face appears emaciated, and his eyes are mere pin-pricks dancing among the darkness of his sockets. It's as if the corruption has eaten anything human.

    Outside of a decent subplot with Reptil and Spider-Girl falling for each other, there was nothing redeemable about this issue. Luckily for fans of Avengers Academy, there was also an issue of the ongoing series released this week - which got an 8.0, making it so that there is absolutely no need to pick this awful comic book off the shelf for any reason. Skip this comic at all costs. Read Full Review
