What is Braddock Academy?

Marvel has announced a new title part of their Marvel NOW! line. Titled "Avengers Arena". Written by Dennis Hopeless with art by Kev Walker. "Braddock Academy" is mentioned in an interview over on about the newly announced title. There are 16 participants fighting for their lives on this island. Any familiar faces? Any particularly unfamiliar faces?

Bill Rosemann: A fun mix of both. Fans of AVENGERS ACADEMY will hopefully be excited by the next chapter in the lives of Hazmat, Mettle, Reptil, Juston and his Sentinel and X-23. Speaking of schools, who are the Braddock Academy? After his last appearances in War of Kings and NOVA, Darkhawk soars again! Staying with sci-fi, just wait until you see what Dennis and Kev have planned for Annihilation’s Cammi, baddest girl in all the galaxy. And last but certainly not least, direct from the pages of the dearly missed RUNAWAYS, we have Chase and Nico!

Dennis Hopeless: We really got to cherry pick our cast. That was a lot of fun, almost as much fun as creating the brand new characters. I have a feeling the Braddock Academy kids in particular are going to break some hearts. Not sure if we made it clear yet, but people die in this book.

You think this will have something to do with Betsy? It sounds more like Avengers matter so i suppose it's gonna be about Brian.
