''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.

* WolverinePublicity: The title is considered an ''Avengers'' book and has Avengers branding, but there's only five characters associated with Comicbook/TheAvengers in the title. One of those five characters (X-23) is considered to be more of an ''ComicBook/XMen'' character, not to mention Arcade is a classic X-Men villain. The [[Film/TheAvengers billion grossing movie]] ''probably'' had something to do with the name. Not to mention this is X-23's sixth book, putting her closer and closer with her DistaffCounterpart, {{Wolverine}}'s exposure.

* ChekhovsGun: In issue #5, while Kid Briton is being berated by Captain Britain, there's a fight outside the window with the Braddock Academy staff and [[{{Nextwave}} Elsa Bloodstone]] and a huge green monster. It's treated as a FunnyBackgroundEvent, but later [[spoiler: it's revealed in #14 that the green monster was actually ''Cullen.'']]
