Avengers Arena has been an exciting ride that has kept some readers on the edge of their arm chairs, or kitchen tables or basement steps or anywhere else they prefer to read. There has been love, drama, death and my favorite destruction. The road has been long and exciting events have insued.
Nicco of Runaways fame with her staff of one has shown to be a great contender, while getting beaten using her enormous blood loss as a sacrifice to come back from the dead. The staff of one did not disappoint. She comes just in time to save some of the other children trapped on Arcades twisted Island.
Darkhawk taken out early in the game has his powers assumed by the runaway Chase. Chase along with Juston’s sentinel are controlled by Apex and are the ones that bring death to Nicco.
Meanwhile back on the mainland Molly also a former Runaway tells those at the Avengers Academy that all the kids gallivanting doesn’t make sense and that something is amiss. Hank Pym follows up and is convinced everything is OK by a Robot version of one of the kids.
The story is left off with Apex and Deathlocket deep in Arcade’s layer. They are attacked by Arcade but promptly saved by the thought to be dead Christopher Powell (Darkhawk) who knocks arcade on his ass.
It has been an exciting journey and the end is coming soon in Avengers Arena 18 which you can pick up at your local comic book shop, or at 1st Print Comics 1548 Buffalo Road Rochester NY 14624. You can also here myself and Dave ramble more about it on 2nd Prints Podcast which is available on Itune’s, Stitcher, No Agenda Global Radio, and RocPodcasts.
