Avengers Arena features teen heroes captured by an augmented Arcade and forced to battle each other. Dennis Hopeless and Kev Walker create new characters for the series, but many are former Runaways and members of Avengers Academy. Despite the premise of the comic, the creators treat each character with respect. The series began in the “arena” with characters having no idea how they got there. Except for flashbacks, we haven’t seen the outside world until now.
AVENGERS ACADEMY fans attention! This issue is actually an extension of the defunct series, written by Christos Gage. Enjoy this one and then grab the rest!
