Random information on the term ” Acme”:

The Acme Corporation is a fictional corporation that features prominently in the Road Runner/Wile E. Coyote animated shorts as a running gag featuring outlandish products that fail or backfire catastrophically at the worst possible times. The name is also used as a generic title in many cartoons, especially those made by Warner Bros., and films, TV series, commercials and comic strips.

The company name in the Road Runner cartoons is ironic, since the word acme is derived from Greek (ακμή; English transliteration: akmē) meaning the peak, zenith or prime, yet products from the fictional Acme Corporation are often generic, failure-prone, or explosive.

Acme means “pinnacle”, so the name was sometimes used to symbolize the best. An early global Acme brand name was the “Acme City” whistle made from mid 1870s onwards by J Hudson & Co, followed by the “Acme Thunderer”, and “Acme siren” in 1895. The name became particularly popular for businesses in the 1920s, when alphabetized business telephone directories such as the Yellow Pages began to be widespread: A name at the beginning of the alphabet would be listed first, and a name implying “the best” was even better. There was a flood of businesses named Acme; some survive to this day, including Acme Brick, Acme Markets, and Acme Boots. Early Sears catalogues contained a number of products with the “Acme” trademark, including anvils, which are frequently used in Warner Bros. cartoons. The ubiquitousness of the name became something of a joke.

Avengers Arena is a comic book series published by Marvel Comics that debuted in December 2012, as part of the Marvel NOW! relaunch. The series shows 16 young heroes from the Marvel Universe and pit them against each other in a kill-or-be-killed, reality-show-like scenario in Murderworld run by Arcade. The series ended with issue 18 and was followed by a sequel titled Avengers Undercover that dealt with the survivors infiltrating the Shadow Council’s Masters of Evil.

In September 2012, Marvel Comics announced that Avengers Arena would debut, with a December 2012 cover date, by the creative team of Dennis Hopeless and Kev Walker. The series ran 18 issues, and was followed by a sequel series, Avengers Undercover.

The comic has a battle royale theme, notably inspired by the Japanese novel/manga/film Battle Royale and the American young adult dystopian novel/film series The Hunger Games.

Sixteen teenage superheroes (consisting of Cammi, Darkhawk, Hazmat, Mettle, Nico Minoru, Reptil, Juston Seyfert and his Sentinel, Chase Stein, X-23, Apex, Nara, Kid Briton, Red Raven II, Death Locket, Cullen Bloodstone, and Anachronism) are abducted by supervillain Arcade, brought to his latest version of Murderworld, and forced to fight to the death for Arcade’s enjoyment, inspired by several books he read while previously incarcerated. Arcade effortlessly subdues them using incredible new powers and announces that he will start the contest off by killing one of the heroes for them, choosing Hazmat. Mettle volunteers to be sacrificed in Hazmat’s place, and Arcade disintegrates him by snapping his fingers.
