    mugiwara, I have to say that I prefer the French names. Cuirasse is badass, far more than Mettle. Refers to a type of breastplate, IIRC. Zombify him and put him on a skeleton horse, and call him the undead Cuirassier.
    If that's the deal, then why didn't he grab the Young Avengers. Bah, whatever, Arena sucks.

    Ah crap, now it's an Academy/Arena thread. I'm leaving before those mountains of hecklers appear.

    God, Arena is going to drive me mad for the next 2 years.

    Because they're completely off the radar? Bah, whatever, if only Finesse was in Arena. That'd be awesome.
    I would like to say for the record that this is the FIRST TIME I've withheld dong when someone was so desperately asking for some.

    While I can't say I agree with the premise of Arena, I'm liking Arcade's new look. Sort of a "Lou Siffer" thing he's got going there.

    Cammi wasn't even on the Avengers' radar!

    Arcade knew he had to get a ringer in to make things interesting. Cammi is so impossibly badass and hard to kill, he knew he was onto a good thing.

    I think it'll be cancelled before.

    Yea. If somebody killed my Wooby (that's what I call him) I'd go apeshit and END them.
    Grief and loss and pain and sorrow elicite different reactions from people. Some turn into weeping puddles and some become enraged.
    Hazmat? Turning to anger? Absolutely in character.

    Yeah, I agree, the Nico-not-using-magic-to-save-everyone thing is bugging me, ...
    Nico is a skeptic. She's playing her cards real close to her chest. She and Chase have had plenty of experience with betrayl and subterfuge that they're laying low, assessing the situation and keeping their respective abilities hidden from the others.
    One could argue "Oh but the Academy kids know about her powers! They've seen them in action!" but given the circumstances, how/why should Nico and Chase believe what is happening around them is real or that anyone in the room can be trusted?

    They're skeptics. That's my in-verse explanation for their LACK of involvement thus far.

    Ironic it happened around Christmas.

    Ironic, or annoying.

    Reviewing is a lot like paleontology: the evidence is there, but no one seems to agree on it.

    There really won't be any news about Academy any more, and the conversation has shifted to Arena.

    Interesting Defense of course it has no justification in text so I am not buying it yet.

    Not sure enough will make it out alive. I am sure X-23 will though. But no I figure Marvel goes with the Young Avengers model for most part here on out. Nice clear analogs of famous avengers.
