Added DiffLines:

* MoralPragmatist: This is how the veteran Avengers try to reform the teenage would-be supervillains. They try to show the kids that doing evil and supervillainy will only hurt themselves and their goals in the long run, while heroism or playing within the law can be lucrative. It sticks with some, but not so much for others.

* TheBigGuy: Mettle. Being a giant of iridium, it's sort of the default.



* TheBusCameBack: [[spoiler:Veil returns, along with Jeremy Briggs and Jocasta, in an attempt to close the Academy]].



* FakingTheDead: [[spoiler: Jocasta]]
* FiveTokenBand: Goes very, very close to this trope with the original lineup. Reptil is Latino, Mettle is half-Jewish and half either Black or Polynesian, Hazmat is a Japanese-American girl, Viel is also a girl and Striker is [[spoiler: gay]]. Later additions to the core team (White Tiger, Julie Power and X-23) are Latino, bisexual and a clone, respectively and are all girls.
* FiveManBand: Close. The series starts with 6, then adds quite a few.
** TheLeader: Reptil. He's above all else really wants to be a hero. Elected Class President.
** TheLancer: Hazmat. Where Reptil is full of hope and dreams, she is full of anger and lost dreams.
** TheBigGuy: Mettle. Being a giant of iridium, it's sort of the default.
** TheSmartGuy: Finesse. Verging on TheSpock.
** TheChick: Veil. Compared to the tomboyish Finesse and Hazmat, she's the definite Girly-Girl. [[spoiler: After Veil leaves, Julie Power takes up this role.]]
** SixthRanger: Striker. Acts a foil to Reptil in wanting to be a hero for the wrong reasons.

* HollywoodDateless: Tigra(!) of all people laments her dating impaired status during the series ("Single mom who sheds"). She could probably easily get dates--just not long term commitment.

Created by Christos Gage the series has been near universally praised for its ability to tell compelling one and two story arcs while building on the excellent characterizations issue after issue. ''Avengers Academy'' acts as a SpiritualSuccessor to the similarly themed, though quite different ''[[ComicBook/AvengersTheInitiative Avengers: The Initiative]]'', also co-written by Gage. One of the students 'Reptil' coming from that series, Hank Pym and Tigra were also central figures in that book. Though that Pym was a Skrull. The presence of Hank, Jocasta and Quicksilver means it also continues some plot threads from ComicBook/DarkReign-era ''Mighty Avengers''.

* ScareEmStraight: In a (minor) crossover with the ''{{Thunderbolts}}''. Striker even cites the idea directly, the title of the issue is "Scared Straight".

* LamarckWasRight: Finesse has the same powers as {{Taskmaster}}, who gained them by special serum, and it's implied she might be his daughter. When the two of them meet, she directly asks him about it, only for it to turn out that a drawback of his powers is loss of his non-combat related memories, so he has no damn idea.
