Heroic Aging

Two new Avengers titles that recently debuted, Secret Avengers and Avengers Academy, show promise. The Secret roster is cool; I like the addition of first-time Avengers Valkyrie, Nova, and (irredeemable) Ant-Man. Meanwhile, the Avengers Academy book is intriguing. Glad that Hank Pym, Speedball, Quicksilver, Tigra, and Justice are in the book regularly, as teachers to a half-dozen new students/potential Avengers. These aren’t exactly Young Avengers-ish teens, as the first issue reveals. I just hope the Initiative graduates become recurring guests, or supporting cast members. They deserve full-time Avengers memberships already.
