Of all the Heroic Age Avengers titles, I think I'm enjoying Avengers Academy the most. Classic Avengers are currently scattered amongst the rosters of the 78 or so monthly books, but Academy boasts a few hitters among its regular teaching staff. Teachers include the unpredictable Quicksilver, the sultry Tigra, troubled Speedball, and Henry Pym, the...winsome Wasp?!? Yes, among his many, many other names, costumes and identities, the Avengers founding father and resident mad genius recently took on his dead wife's name and mantle in a questionable act of tribute. The move, which lasted Pym's tenure as leader of the Mighty Avengers, was the first of many that had even the characters questioning his sanity, and ultimately rejecting his leadership. Now, with Avengers Academy #7, it looks like Pym will reassess the wisdom of that move, and retake the Giant Man Name. Just in time to get a spiffy Mike McKone redesign!
