One of the best Hazmat/Mettle moments.

There are two types of comic writers.

Creators, who build up worlds and create lots of characters and relationships.

and

Destroyers, who take the established characters and either kill off most of the cast or destroy most things associated with the book.  Usually leave a book when they just run out of things to do.

It’s just really strange how I’ve been observing this trend.  You got Academy X New X-Men followed by Craig and Yost’s New X-Men, which killed almost the entire cast and blew up the coffee shop and then left the book open ended cause hey, at least they got X-23 popular.  Or Bendis who started his Avengers run by blowing up the mansion and killing most the Avengers, but he puts Spider-Man and Wolverine on the team, so it’s okay.  Or Dennis Hopeless with Avengers Arena (Granted he was told by editorial to do this).

Is it just me, or is the biggest way to get popular as a writer to just kill off what the guy before you has created?

The more I read interviews, the more I think Joss Whedon thinks Scarlet Witch is Jean Grey…

*Find Marvel Enyclopedia in a shop, latest version*
*Flip through entries*
*Avengers Academy isn’t in there.
*Neither is Hazmat*
*Hardball is*
Me: OH COME ON!!!

(And yes, they do mention Arcade’s Murderworld.)

So…there’s a possibility that Avengers Academy is in Avengers: Age of Ultron?

…huh

Who at Marvel went “you know what the Runaways and Avenger Academy series need? NAZI SYMBOLISM!”

Cause that is what people who read those books wanted. For the characters to become fucking Nazis.

Can Wiccan and Kate Bishop join the KKK while we are at it?

Young Avengers vol.2 #11

I was looking for this.
I love this chart, but GOD DAMN do I hate that Mettle, X-23 and Hazmat are red out.

I love this chart, but GOD DAMN do I hate that Mettle, X-23 and Hazmat are red out.

Reminder that the Young Avengers and Avengers Academy kids never properly met.

  • Hazmat in Avengers Academy: Hot headed and lashing out, Hazmat eventually finds someone who shares her pain of being stuck with a crippling power forced upon her, and through understanding becomes a compassionate person, controlling her anger as a strength and become a stronger hero.
  • Hazmat in Avengers Arena and Avengers Undercover: She's a mean girl who gets fucked up by everyone and even criticized as being worse than the man who forced teenage kids to fight each other to the death, and is now most likely going to become a villain, because character development? Who needs that!

That horrible feeling that if Avengers Academy is ever made into a movie, it’s sequel will most likely be Avengers Arena.

That even worse feeling that Avengers Arena probably will be made into a film over Avengers Academy.
