* FranchiseKiller: The failure of this series and the backlash it received has led Marvel to decide that ''ComicBook/{{Runaways}}'' and ''ComicBook/AvengersAcademy'' were no longer viable franchises, and consequently, the old Runaways were replaced with [[ComicBook/{{Runaways 2015}} a new team]] (which flopped), and the ''Avengers Academy'' became attached to [[VideoGame/AvengersAcademy a new mobile game]] featuring teenage versions of MCU characters.
** That's a CriticalResearchFailure: Runaways 2015 would never have led to a permanent series, as it was actually just a ComicBook/SecretWars2015 tie-in - which still featured Molly Hayes. Nico Minoru had already been moved over to ComicBook/AForce, thus disbanding the original Runaways team, which had a FullyAbsorbedFinale anyway towards the end of the Avengers Academy comic (they effectively end up enrolling, by means of a robot tutor at their base). As for the Academy, that too disbanded during the post Secret Wars timeskip, and the explanation lies in events in the Avengers comics and the Rage of Ultron graphic novel. The Academy lost it's headteacher when Hank Pym sacrificed himself to defeat Ultron. Then the Avengers lost most of their funding (Stark Industries no longer being as profitable thanks to Alchemax, Roxxon, and Parker Industries), having to sell Avengers Mansion and disband the primary team. The Unity Squad only survives by recruiting Deadpool and using his merchandise to fund the team. Iron Man forms a new team but with a lot less resources than before. There's no way they could afford to keep the Academy open! Besides, most of the cast of Avengers Academy had graduated. Both titles really just came to a natural conclusion.
