A perfect jumping-on point for new readers and a previously untold tale for old fans!

Commenting on his latest work, Christos Gage explains “We all know that this can’t just be another “teen hero” book, and we’re working very hard to make sure it’s more than that. The last page of issue #1 will, I hope, take people by surprise, and create the kind of excitement I felt when reading the first issues of Runaways or Thunderbolts. A tall order, I know, but we’re puling out all the stops to make that a reality.

“We’ve also taken full advantage of the generosity of the other writers at last year’s Avengers Summit, who encouraged me to use the characters from their books in guest appearances whenever it makes sense. Really, anyone who’s ever been an Avenger is a potential instructor at Avengers Academy, and we’ll start to see that realized in issue #3, which guest-stars three outside Avengers…and another Marvel team that has ties to the Avengers, but a slightly, shall we say, checkered past.”
