They might be giants. No wait, they are giants !
Review of Avengers Academy #16.
The Story: HANK PYM VS VAGUE EVEN MORE SUPERPOWERED ABSORBING MAN IN DUBAI. THIS SUNDAY. BE THERE !
The Good: In this issue I really felt for Pym, trying to stop Creel and not destroy the city or kill any more innocent people. Also him trying to figure out how to defeat him without taking him to the Microverse so Creel won't destroy it. But the way he incapacitate Creel and Titania is clever. But my favorite part of this issue is at the end where Veil save's the mother of a little girl but gets shot by Sin's forces and kills the pilot and gunman. This works better then what Mettle did last issue because here Veil did what she tought was right and instead of getting a speech given by Tigra wich ircked me last issue. Because one problem I found from Gage's writing is that instead of using simple images to tell how somebody's emotions he overwrites certain scene's between people. Also I love the coloring on the different gas forms that Veil used at the end of the issue.
The Bad: Yeah im confused, are the chosen supposed to be able to talk normally or should they always talk in runic ? Can't really blame Gage for this but more is this Fraction's fault.
The Verdict: This issue does the whole civilian protection scenario in a tense manner of epic proportion's and im curious how these latest events will affect Veil. Sure the main Fear Itself book may suck but this tie-in sure is good. This is a buy.
