Jeanne: Mr. Maximoff?
Jeanne: What are you doing?
Pietro: Watching “Downtown Abbey”. My sister enjoys it. I find it tedious.
Jeanne: You find everything tedious.
Pietro: This is true…You’re welcome to join me, if you like.— Remember this. For some these will be the best years of their lives. Yours will only get better.

Remember this. For some, these will be the best years of their lives. Yours will only get better.
Jeanne: On my mark, go!
Pietro: Finesse. Join your classmates.
Jeanne: Someone has to activate the self-destruct manually! it was meant—
Pietro: For Jocasta, who’d project her consciousness into another body in the second it takes for the mansion to blow up. But she’s not here. So I’ll do it.
Jeanne: I…after what I’ve done to you, I can’t let you die for me.
Pietro: Die? Perish the thought. One second is an eternity for me. Now be a good girl…mind your teacher. —Now!

I’m an expert at everything. Except what I need to get through every day for the rest of my life.
Jeanne: I am not concerned about our enemy just now. Laura! You’re—
Laura: I—will be okay.
Jeanne: First we must restore Laura’s powers. She will not survive much longer.
Avengers Academy #35 & 36 by Christos Gage & Andrea Di Vito
GIRLFRIENDS! Even next issue Jeanne will be holding Laura in her arms!
Hank: Juston…I’m not the kind of man who says empty words just to make people feel better. So when I tell you this, I mean it. You didn’t lose a machine today. You lost your best friend. And I will never forgive myself for failing to stop it.
Pietro: Oh, spare me. I’m getting nauseated just listening to you all. Really, I had to do this for the sake of my own sanity.
Juston: I-is that…?
Pietro: Your sentinel’s central processing unit? Yes. Once I saw Emma levitating it, I switched it with a unit from one of our training robots. They’re quite similar. All faster than her eye could see, of course. And our defenses prevented her sensing my mind…remarkably, given the splitting headache your whining has given me.
Juston: You…you’re a mutant. You must hate sentinels. And you still…
Pietro: The heart wants what the heart wants, yours wants the sentinel…and mine wants quiet.
Juston: I don’t know how to thank you. Any of you.
Pietro: I do. keep your excessive displays of emotion to yourself—Ah. Oh, very well. I suppose I can stay a few moments longer.

Jeanne: LEAVE HIM ALONE!
Jeanne: He learned everything you taught him! Tried to be exactly what you wanted!
Magneto: Pietro? Do you know this…person?
Pietro: Don’t…DON’T YOU TOUCH HER! You poison everything you touch! Wanda! Me! I won’t let your corrupt her too!

Taskmaster: Yer gonna be fine, though. Yer a smart kid. This Avengers Academy thing…sweetest scam I ever saw. A cushy gig livin’ off Tony Stark’s cash…and when that goes sour, you got inside info worth a fortune to the right buyer. Bottom line, every day you’re gettin’ better. And that’s what life’s all about.
Jeanne: Is it?
Taskmaster: It is for us. Take care’a yerself kid.

Jocasta: I realize you feel deep mistrust toward what Jeremy and I are doing. With this, we hope to convince you you’re wrong. But if you prefer, think of it as being there to protect your friends, in the event we plan some betrayal. Unless you are otherwise occupied, of course.
Jeanne: No, Jocasta. We will be there. Since the Academy closed, Laura and I have been seeking other places we might feel at home. It has not gone well. We will see you soon.

ღ Jeanne Foucault & Pietro Maximoff
I’ve been thinking. I don’t want you to teach me to be like him anymore…I want you to teach me to be like you.
Jeanne: …and that’s when he turned away. But he was talking about some big secret they’re keeping from us.
Ken: What, you’re a lip reader?
Jeanne: Since I was five. I’m a polymath, Mettle. I acquire skills and knowledge at an accelerated rate. I drink them in. I graduated M.I.T. at fourteen. I was in training for the Olympics when Osborn found me. I don’t make mistakes. And I know what I saw.
Brandon: Well, there’s one way to find out what he meant. They’ll have files on us, right? Our “permanent records”? Everyone’s away tonight except Pym, and he’s locked in his lab making sweet love to test tubes. Let’s hack into the system.
Humberto: I’m sorry, did Macgyver join up and I missed it? This is the Avengers. They have security. Who here knows advanced computer programming and counter-espionage?

…I trained in swordplay…with Valkyrie. I’ve fought Steve Rogers myself! I don’t need your damn newsreel!
Avengers Academy #9 by Christos Gage & Mike McKone
I think knowledge is power. I think we should learn whatever they can teach us, then we can make our own decisions…and no one will be able to stand in our way.

I actually found these panels pretty hilarious! Jeanne is just throwing people with ease~ I didn’t realize she had such strength!
