    Glad he mentioned 'Runaways' before 'Young Avengers.'

    Hmm, I'm interested.

    This whole interview he had to be tighted-lipped about almost everything! But it does clarify that Avengers will be teaching the specific classes...

    I'm glad me mentioned there's some sort of twist in this. Because it was sort of starting to sound a bit too much like what the X-Men do back in the day. The almost freakshow vibe gives a sort of Morrison New X-men vibe, not that that's necessarily a bad thing.

    I'm glad this book creates an opportunity to hopefully use some of the lesser used classic Avengers out there. Despite 3 other X-Men books, there's always a good number of classic Avengers I wish could be used somewhere. And this is a pretty convinient place to squeze a few of them in at least occasionally.

    I'll be giving the book a shot, but a few more teasers would have helped the interview a lot. Like, who are any of these characters? A l'il something to peak our interest could have helped; I know a lot of folks had an initial bad reaction to the character images.

    If I am reading it correctly, he gave away A LOT in that interview.


    Let me start with the speculation... I'm assuming it is New Warriors focused so I will say Meltdown is Firestar and Speedball is Fortress.

    Anyone else?

    I wonder why the Young Avengers aren't going to the school.

    Maybe they've gotten enough practical on the field experience already.

    Firestar is going to be over in the Young Allies. She was also an actual Avenger for awhile, so I doubt she'll need the training.

    I'm just glad Gage is on this book. His run on Avengers: The Iniative was awesome (both solo and with Slott).

    It seems to me that we can compare it more to the New X-Men feeling of Kyle & Yost instead of a follow-up on The Initiative, which is a shame. I like a lot of those (former) cadets, state-teams, instructors and of course the Shadow Initiative. But, if you read between the lines, we probably will not find any of those good tasting ingredients in this new series. I'm disappointed in a big way. Thay shouldn't have cancelled Avengers: The Initiative for this.

    ATI was doing quite well and had quite some followers. I'm crying a Iguasu waterfall now.

    No, Seres.

    Always say the more appealing ones before the rotten ones.

    Watch how I get my ass kicked for saying ^in an Avengers Forum.

    Yeah, my particular guesses may not be right but I think it is pretty clear from the article that these characters are going to be characters we already know, just under different IDs.
