* AudienceAlienatingPremise: Young teens, many of whom are fan favorites being brutally killed off by a C-list villain-turned-GodModeSue? Yeah, that'll piss quite a few folks off.

* AudienceAlienatingPremise: Academy fans were largely pissed at the announcement. Then issue 1 happened, and they things became a bit more split, but the angry appear to have remained so.

** Juston was a base breaker in Academy and that has carried over to this series. The reason: The Sentinel. Many view it as a weapon of mutant genocide, despite the advances and developments it's made beyond that. To them, it is a sentinel and it must be destroyed. On the other hand fans of Juston's short lived Sentinel series are NOT happy at all with how the character was treated. [[spoiler: Specifically Juston getting put through a massive TraumaCongaLine only to be killed off the next issue.]]

* AudienceAlienatingPremise: A c-list villain decides to show he's ''really'' evil. ...by kidnapping a bunch of teenagers, breaking character by actively ''forcing'' them to play his game, and in the end, many likable young heroes who never got a chance to shine get slaughtered like cattle

** Seems to be Arcade's belief in-universe, as the impetus for the entire scheme was to make himself seem more impressive to the rest of the supervillain community. Ignoring that when the superheroes find out he'll be public enemy number one, he seems not to understand that most criminals tend to have a low opinion of people who hurt kids.

* 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.
