The Braddock Academy was organized under the direction of Captain Britain in his ancestral home, Braddock Manor in England. Much like the American Jean Grey School for Higher Learning or the Avengers Academy, the Braddock Academy is tasked with training Britain's best and brightest children to become new generations of heroes.[2]

While creating his newest death game, Arcade kidnapped five of the Braddock Academy's students including Anachronism, Apex, Cullen Bloodstone, Kid Briton, and Nara. After abducting the students, Arcade brought them to his new Murder World island.[3]

To prevent suspicion about their disappearance, Arcade periodically post fake picture and social media updates. Captain Britain has tried unsuccessfully to track his students, but instead has been left to clean their mess.[4]

The games began after Avengers Academy student Mettle sacrificed himself for his girlfriend Hazmat.[5] The Braddock Academy students ventured off by together and were soon joined by Death Locket.[6]

The Braddock Academy students suffered from internal conflict, which eventually resulted with Anachronism beheading Kid Briton,[7] and Apex using her technopathy to attack all the other Murder World contents.[8]

The three remaining students joined with Cammi, the Runaways, and Avengers Academy students.[9] Ultimately, they were attacked by a rampaging X-23, and Cullen transformed into the Glartrox to fight her. Nara eventually sacrificed herself to save Cullen and prevent Aiden from murdering.[10]

Contest of Champions

Despite some truancy issues,[5][4][11] the Braddock Academy was one of the many schools for super-powered adolescents to participate in the first annual Contest of Champions held at the Avengers Compound in Palo Alto, California under the direction of Meggan, Dr. Pym, Wolverine, and She-Hulk.[11]
