Avengers Academy #38
That said, this issue has all the weaknesses of the run too. In the amusing interaction between Wolverine and Giant Man, we see the series’ greatest weakness. Gage has the voices of the characters down, and they act appropriately. They make a sort of uneasy peace after Giant Man slammed Wolverine out of a plane in AvX. But I’m certain that Bendis and the other top dogs at Marvel have no idea about this interaction. Gage is once again picking up pieces that happened in “more important” books.
It’s too bad, because it is a great idea to have the two super-hero schools compete in a football game. Tom Grummett draws the heck out of it. I love Tigra’s electricity-inspired afro. X-23 may have lost the sports bra, but the long sleeves make a lot more sense.
