Format: Paperback
The story running through the issues #29-33 of Avengers Academy is collected as Avengers Vs. X-Men: Avengers Academy (Avengers/X-Men). Rather, there are two stories - a three-parter in which the young mutants that were left behind in Utopia when the X-Men were driven out by the Avengers are `interned' at the Avengers Academy, along with the amnesiac Sebastian Shaw; and a two-parter in which the Phoenix-powered Emma Frost visits the Academy to destroy Juston's pet Sentinel - the last one remaining after an earlier tantrum of hers.

These are not the usual `filler' stories that normally accompany a big `event', but they are used for much character-development among the students as they debate the rights and wrongs of locking up people who haven't actually done anything merely as a precaution, and X-23, or Laura, as we should start calling her, makes some considerable progress in finding her real self through both the stories. These really are very well-scripted and illustrated stories that move the characters forward in their development.

THE SPOILER ZONE

Issue #29: "Protective Services - 1/3" opens with Hercules demonstrating to the students how he competed in the first Olympic Games, authentically naked, though no-one wants to partner him in a wrestling match for some reason. Then the Avengers arrive, following the events of AvX issue #2, with the young mutants from Utopia, brought to Avengers Academy for want of anywhere else for them to go, and accompanied by Sebastian Shaw, found in a cell in Utopia, where Emma Frost was keeping him after erasing his memory.

One of the better AvsX crossovers that also boosts an already fine comic on its own 21 April 2013
By Michael A. Weyer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
"Avengers vs X-Men" was a major event with slews of crossover issues for both titles and thier spin-offs. But one of the best of the bunch is this collection for "Avengers Academy." It begins with the Avengers and Wolverine deciding to put the children of Wolverine's school with the Academy for their safety. This of course leads to some conflict with several of the mutants not happy about being locked up and the mutant members of the Academy wanting to join them. There's fun stuff such as when Hazmat is told she should agree being Japanese and she replies "My great-grandfaher was in an internment camp with a single room of three families. These kids have seperate quarters and their own Internet access." Not helping is an amnesiac Sebastian Shaw, seen as a help by the X-Kids, going on a rampage with the Avengers thinking he's out to kill the kids for revenge. There's good stuff here like X-23 trying to find her place with her former friends and more of the conflict of others but light-hearted moments such as when mutant Loa uses her powers to allow Mettle to "surf" again, a great touch. Also funny is Hercules, who starts off in the nude for Olympics (Tigra: "How in three thousand years have you not figured out people wear clothes?") and going over the top a lot in fights and talk. The finale makes sense and shows how, like any war, it's the children who suffer over the adults doing what they want.

The latter two issues have the now Phoenix-empowered Emma Frost coming to the Academy to destroy Juston's pet Sentinel. It's a moving bit of Juston not wanting to lose his friend, despite its anti-mutant programming and Frost coldly dealing with everyone. It also has X-23 making her final choice and a surprising aid from someone you'd think would never help a Sentinel. It also leads to a big finale that sets up the final story-arc of the book. As always, Gage nails the characters perfectly, thier desires and wants and fears and is aided by fine art by Tom Grummett that enhances the action scenes. So if you're a fan of the book already, this is a key section to get but even newbies should admire how this uses the epic crossover well to show how the effects go beyond just the big two teams.
Students Versus Students 18 Nov 2013
By THowerton - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This story comes across in two parts: the more interesting part (A) wherein mutant students from Wolverine's school are brought to the Avengers Academy to be watched and kept on grounds [WWII Japanese American intern camps is a historical and philosophical backdrop for the story] and the okay part (B) wherein the AA students are confronted by a Phoenix-forced Emma Frost who is on the hunt to obliterate all remaining sentinels, including AA student Juston's sentinel with whom he/it bonded. The closure of this volume feels like the end to the series (and perhaps it was? I don't know) and it takes place in the larger Avengers Versus X-Men conflict though it's focus is primarily on the Avengers Academy students. I read the first volume only of AA and I really liked it. This volume was decent enough and the creators and writers have developed a disparate group of characters that the reader can care for. 3.75 stars.

A Confusing, Over Extended and Costly Mess 20 Aug 2013
By Lou Cole - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This was another one of Marvel Comics continuous cross-overs. This is onluy one of the many, many, many trade backs involved in this confusing and costly mess.

I really liked the Avengers, bu with what Marvel Comics has been doing with the Avengers over the last few years since they started "the New Avengers," this "A vs. X" mess has made be just give up on "the Avengers " altogether.

Not only that, but this mess ends up leading to the introduction to two more new Avengers on-going comic boks series, not like there is already enough of them already, "A and X" and "Uncanny Avengers."

Many a successful and popular thing has lost its popularity leading to it demise by giving the public too much of it. This definitely seems to be the case.

The only reason I gave this mess one star is because there is nothing lower.
