** Nico's powers aren't portrayed as they were in [[Creator/JossWhedon Joss Whedon's run]]. Nico casts the spell "Chill Out", which she already cast in ''ComicBook/CivilWar: Runaways[=/=]YoungAvengers #2''. The Staff of One can only cast the same spell once and tends to have a random or negative effect when a spell is recast. The effect is different, but the results are very much the same. Also, Apex [[spoiler: was able to grab the Staff of One, despite in volume three it established no one but her can touch it.]]

** Apex, who is clearly a superpowered version of [[Film/BattleRoyale Mitsuko Souma]].

** Apex, who is clearly a superpowered version of [[Film/BattleRoyale Mitsuko Souma]]. She's also [[spoiler: forced to share a body]] with Tim, a docile sweet guy. Sort of like a [[Series/BuffyTheVampireSlayer completely evil hellgod that a blonde vampire slayer had to death with]].

''Avengers Arena'' is a spin-off from ''ComicBook/TheAvengers'' (and direct follow-up to ''ComicBook/AvengersAcademy'') by writer Dennis Hopeless and primary artist Kev Walker as part of Creator/{{Marvel}}'s ''Comicbook/MarvelNOW'' iniative. ''Avengers Arena'' stars sixteen of the Franchise/MarvelUniverse's teenage superheroes as they're put onto an isolated island and forced to fight and kill each other for [[Comicbook/XMen diabolical mastermind Arcade's]] amusement (yes like a certain infamous [[Film/BattleRoyale film based on a novel]]). The characters participating are [[Comicbook/AvengersAcademy Reptil, Hazmat, Mettle, Juston Seyfret and his Sentinel]], ComicBook/{{X 23}}, [[ComicBook/{{Runaways}} Chase Stein, Nico Minoru]], ComicBook/{{Darkhawk}}, [[Comicbook/{{Annihilation}} Cammi]], and Red Raven. The characters created for the book include Rebecca Ryker[=/=]Deathlocket (a younger DistaffCounterpart of Deathlok), and students of [[Comicbook/{{Excalibur}} Captain Britain's]] Braddock Academy: Apex (AlphaBitch smartypants), Nara (bloodlustful Atlantean), Kid Briton (young alternate-reality Captain Britain), Cullen Bloodstone (Ulysses Bloodstone's retconned son and ComicBook/ElsaBloodstone's little brother), and Anachronism (nerd stuck in ancient warrior's body).

* FanNickname: "Axbro" for Anachronism and [[spoiler: "Chasehawk" for Chase.]] Both names appeared in the comic.



* FirstEpisodeSpoiler[=/=]LateArrivalSpoiler: [[spoiler: Mettle is killed brutally in the ''very first issue,'' setting up the villain Arcade's powers, Hazmat's character arc, and the entire series' tone.]] Several comic news outlets already included that spoiler in any coverage of ''Arena'', and it's pretty hard to read anything about the comic without stumbling into that. Also, several other characters are {{Walking Spoiler}}s due to the nature of the series.
* FiveManBand: The Braddock Academy kids.
** TheLeader = Kid Briton, a JerkJock who has saved his universe countless times.
** TheLancer = Apex, who took the NumberTwo position and [[spoiler: is now a DragonAscendant and BigBad amongst the combatants.]]
** TheSmartGuy = Cullen Bloodstone, who is smart but not very nice.
** TheChick = Nara, who is TheVamp, but also shares the emotional aspect of TheChick trope.
** TheBigGuy = Anachronism, who's split between his soft personality and the brain of a savage warrior.
