About the Author
In the words of Christos Gage...
I was born in New York, then grew up in Athens, Greece and North Grafton, Massachusetts. Started reading at age 3, discovered comics soon after. First comic collected and saved: Marvel's Godzilla. Never quit comics for girls the way some flip-floppers do, though I did keep it in the closet at times, for which I am deeply ashamed.

The series takes a significantly bold step in the wrong direction. Moving the school to the old West Coast Avengers compound is a good idea and even opening the doors to more teens with powers make sense but its glossed over here so quickly its ineffectual. Random heroes just show up, leave, and show up again its less a school and more of a hostel. Half of the villains in the first part of the book are soooo stupid. Without spoiling it I hate anytime one of these guys show up. The inclusion of X-23 was decent because she's a great character and always leads to some drama but I still am unsure why Logan or Scott would think it makes sense. Then the Runaways are brought in. I love Runaways. One of my favorite series ever, but many times writers don't know what to do with them. While I'm glad Old Lace is back, Hank's desire to "parent" the kids has been done multiple times before and better. Add that to the murder mystery in this book which the readers are unnecessarily tricked and I think you have a book with too many ideas that editorial should have gone through again. Overall, a disappointment.
