* CriticalResearchFailure: It's mentioned that Arcade's videos of the kids fighting in ''Arena'' are "the most-watched videos on You Tube." Putting aside the idea of how watching ''kids murder each other'' would be so popular, there's also the fact that You Tube has very strict policies on what can be shown and there's no way they would allow videos of actual murders to be on their service for even a minute. While the possibilty of the videos becoming viewed via some other underground server exists, openly stating the most popular online video sharing site allows what amounts to real life snuff films doesn't mass muster.

* InternetBackdraft: Of course.


* FridgeBrilliance: It makes sense that Death Locket is the only one who permanently switched sides, unlike the others she had no experience heroing before being thrown in the arena, has to learn her powers on the fly,gets taken control of, forced to kill her love interest, and has major PTSD from the experience, no wonder she makes a FaceHeelTurn.

No wonder she makes a FaceHeelTurn.FaceHeelTurn.
* HarsherInHindsight: In ''ComicBook/RainbowRowellsRunaways'', Nico reveals that all of the magical training she did with Alex in ''Undercover'' used up a lot of her powerful spells, leaving her so hard up for magical power that she has to renegotiate her deal with the Staff of One.


* AwesomeArt: Kev Walker is back as the main artist of the book and provides high quality drawings, and the covers by Francesco Mattina are great and use {{chiaroscuro}} to fit the dark tone of the book.

Added DiffLines:

* DieForOurShip: A ''lot'' of ''ComicBook/AvengersAcademy'' fans utterly despise Anachronism because of all the ShipTease between him and Hazmat, especially given that Hazmat lost her boyfriend in the previous miniseries.

* UnfortunateImplications: The writer has said that the cast of the book "all have PTSD, so maybe they fit better with the villains". This and several other things said by him in interviews did not sit well with some people suffering from PTSD.
* WTHCostumingDepartment: Chase's new look (the mohawk) hasn't been well received.

* CriticalDissonance: Even through big sites gave it great reviews, with IGN stating that ''Undercover'' is "every bit as much a satire of contemporary pop culture as ''Comicbook/AvengersArena'', it had one of the worst sales of all Comicbook/MarvelNOW! and was cancelled at #10, when original plan assumed at least 12 issues, after almost getting scrapped at #6. Additionally, the readers that were apprehensive about Avengers Arena in the first place panned it as much as they did Arena.

-->I can’t believe what I’m reading. Yes, my PTSD is because of past traumatic experience - things like the child abuse, having to deal with finding one of my friends and being a ‘debt-collector’ for some dealers being a few of the major contributions - but Marvel writers are using this as an ‘excuse’ to turn good guys bad? I don’t believe this.
-->PTSD doesn’t work like that. Yes, it affects decision-making and can make someone anti-social and dissociative, but an outright villain? No. All this is going to do is perpetuate the stereotype of mental disorders being a prerequisite for being evil, while the ‘good guys’ are the always-happy, bad-stuff-sliding-off-like-water people. Yes, say the kids have PTSD all you like - for god’s sake after everything I’m surprised they’re not crippled with it (as most with that level of PTSD are) - but for the love of a higher power *don’t* use it as a goddamned excuse to make them into bad guys! It doesn’t work that way. PTSD does not turn you into an asshole that wants to watch the world burn. It mostly just makes you want to hide and get everything away from you.
-->You’d think in this day and age they’d think enough to actually do some research. It’s bad enough that anyone in a film with PTSD is shown to be a twitchy weirdo with odd fetishes that is as likely to shoot you as talk to you, and now we have comics telling us that anyone who says they have PTSD is going to be a bad person, regardless of how they were viewed before that.

* OffModel: The main complaint towards issue #3.
** Also in issue #6 (Which was made by the same artist than in issue #3, Timothy Green II), which lead to a series of jokes about Deathlocket seemingly growing up 5 years in the time between issues 5 and 6.

* VocalMinority: Same deal as ''Arena'', the detractors are ''very'' vocal and the fanbase depsite the sales is solid enough as were the reviews.
