* BellisariosMaxim[=/=]MST3KMantra: The fans of ''Avengers Arena'' for the most part aren't too broken up about the character deaths and some of the technical plot issues, but are here for the overall story and character focus.

Added DiffLines:

* FanDislikedExplanation: Hopeless repeatedly emphasized X-23's tactical nature in early issues of the series, and fans immediately complained when this was disregarded by having her ignore strategy in favor of a direct attack on Apex while the latter was controlling a Sentinel. He responded in the letter pages of the next issue by arguing Laura decided she didn't have time for a better plan and had to act quickly. Fans didn't buy it.

** Darkhawk's treatment is especially bad in this series. Hopeless apparently wanted him because he was a former teen hero, but absolutely nothing about Darkhawk's past as one is relevant to the story. Instead [[spoiler: He's taken out in issue #3 so his armor can be passed on to Chase.]]

* ScapegoatCreator: Dennis Hopeless is the detractors' resident punching bag...how bad is it? Let's put it this way: Hopeless is only the ''writer'' on the series and he's blamed for ''artist's'' decisions. And the story ''wasn't even his initial idea''. And it extends to everything he's written since.

* AccidentalInnuendo: Reptil attempts to do GetAHoldOfYourselfMan to shake Hazmat out of her HeroicBSOD in issue #11. The only problem is [[http://imgur.com/8Jhn6kE it looks like]] [[AttemptedRape he's attempting something else]].

* CrowningMomentOfFunny: As grim as it is, the series offers at least ''one'' big laugh: In #10, Chase [[spoiler: transforms into Darkhawk to take on Apex when he overhears her plans to use the Sentinel and Deathlocket to kill the others. As he psychs himself up for the fight with a RousingSpeech, X-23 runs by]]...
--> '''Chase:''' Darkhawk is--
--> '''X-23:''' ''(Runs past, not even breaking stride as she yells at Chase)'' Stay!
--> '''Chase:''' --staying put!

* VillainSue:
** Arcade, though his powers are only tied into the Arena thanks to Ms. Coriander. The attitude and the fact he hasn't been touched by any hero adds to this.
** [[spoiler: Apex, being a pretty blatant expy of ''Battle Royale''s Kiriyama, fits the bill pretty well once she gets going.]]

* NeverLiveItDown: ''All'' the criticism and fears over characters dying carries over to every book Dennis Hopeless wrote since.
-->[-'''Hopeless'''-]: ''[-"Okay look, thereís no reason to assume Iím going to kill a bunch of characters in every book I write. Avengers Arena was a teenage death match story. People die in those. When I finally decide to write my 200-issue down-on-their-luck high school baseball players epic, chances are good the whole cast will survive till the end. I promise Iím not some sort of blood-hungry sadist who gets his jollies murdering teenagers."-]''

* EnsembleDarkhorse: Deathlocket was loved from her first POV issue. Cullen Bloodstone (NextWave connection) and Anachronism (Axbro) are liked as well, even with little page space. Apex is also emerging as a favorite, which is pretty ''disturbing.''
