Give her escrima sticks to beat on people with.
    I'm half expecting her to become the new Scourge.

    Little bit of thread necromancy here....

    Priscilla Lyons aka Vagabond. 'Partner' of Nomad...and by 'partner' she was his girlfriend who tagged along on his adventures. Became a recruit for the Scourge program...but did not have it in her to drop the hammer on some washed up former costumed bad guy and worked with U.S. Agent to take down the Scourge Program.

    I would bring her back as a speedster. After the thing with U.S. Agent she went back Indiana an becomes a PI. She was working a surveillance job when Black Bolt committed his terrorist act and released a WMD on the Earth. She got terrigenated and after 2 days in the cocoon she hatched and had powers on par with Speed Demon. She is even more protective of her secret ID than Spider-Man. Captain America comes to town to investigate something and they reconnect and take down a bad guy. Cap stays in touch and uses her as an operative to handle cases that come into his Hotline when he is otherwise engaged with Avenger's business.

    I'd like to see Sharon Carter step away from her role as Steve's pillar of stability/mission control. Have her be diagnosed with Alzheimer, and knowing what happens to those with the disease, she decides to throw stability to the wind and go out fighting. She targets Steve's usual rogues and tries to take them down with whatever means, even ones she'd never consider.

    Stuff happens, and she is rejuvenated and looking like she'll be held accountable. Her relationship with Steve is strained, and ultimately, she does leaves and goes underground not unlike her former mentor.

    Hmm, Maria Vasquez teaching at Avengers Academy could be interesting to see. She does have a science background, as far as I'm able to recall right now.

    Bump...
    Quarantine has caused me to relook at the Revamp a Villain thread. Might as well spread the wealth with some do-gooders.

    The Young Avengers

    Iron Lad - I wouldn’t change anything about Nate. But I would have his recruitment drive take place across the timestream. The trigger is still Disassembled. But I want to eliminate some of the convenience of how the team was formed. They are all about the same age and ready to become superheroes right as the Avengers are decimated? No thanks. I think it makes more sense for Nate to use history records to find the heroes he needs as they become battle ready. Otherwise, he still has a short relationship with Cassie and probably doesn’t understand why. But it might have something to do with her mutation (which was suppressed by exposure to Pym particles) making her a chronal anchor.

    Alter-Boy - “Teddy Altman” is still a kree/skrull hybrid. But he’s from a world where there was peace between the two races and very little intolerance. He’s a very laidback individual because of it and followed Nate out of a desire for adventure. His existence (if not the means of his arrival) is taken as an omen by the skrulls. Teddy won’t know how to handle being space-Jesus. His relationship with Billy is the same.

    Wishcraft - Wilhelm “Billy” Maximoff is the son of the Scarlet Witch and the Victor von Doom of another reality; giving him the potential to be a high level sorcerer. But he and Tomas’ birth was magic assisted and eventually led to his mother losing her grip on reality and being mercy killed by his father (Who goes into self exile afterwards). He joins Nate out of a desire to escape. Billy is a very sensitive soul and very much interested in making a connection to others, including the 616 version of his mom. Like the name implies, he often utilizes his reality warping via a verbal “wish.”

    Friction - “Tommy” is the same guy personality wise. But he wears his hair (dyed silver as a nod to his uncle) slicked back. His power would appear to be super speed but would be far more destructive and complex. He traveled with the others because he sees it as his responsibility to protect his brother and because his pedigree made it too easy to romance girls back in his own timeline.

    I will leave it there for now. My laundry is done and it’s nice out. Next up...Eli, Kate, and Cassie

    Sounds like an interesting take on the Young Avengers, kind of like the Avenging Exiles. I'm looking forward to how you'll revamp Eli, especially.

    Part exiles. But I split the group up for a specific reason. The next three are from the present day/616 timeline.

    Arch - Kate Bishop - still more or less the daughter of two seemingly normal if work obsessed individuals publishing magnate Derek Bishop and Eleanor, an accountant for, unbeknownst to Kate, the competition-obsessed Avengers villain (and Kate’s biological father) Imus Champion. Imus, acting as a family friend, paid for much of Kate’s early education in horseback riding, gymnastics, fencing, martial arts, archery, etc. and she took them quickly and with the same drive as Champion. Anyways, she learned that her parents were shady individuals when she was kidnapped for ransom by “business” rivals of her crime adjacent family. She managed to escape in her own to everyone’s surprise.

    This disillusionment led to Kate becoming a masked vigilante in her off hours. It was her way of rebelling. Alternately she created a shallow rich girl persona and was a popular enough social media influencer/blogger that Cassie was aware of her. I want to emphasize her irreverence. She’s a hero by nature and always looking to help those who need it. But she’s also quite cynical because of her upbringing. She’s on a solo mission when she encounters Nate & the others. Once they lose Iron Lad, Cassie convinces her to hold the team together. And she’s charismatic enough to do it. She is using Clint’s bow; recovered from the mansion. And he does gift it to her because he admires her cockiness. But he keeps his name. And she’s good with that because, according to her, she’s going to be a legend and doesn’t want to do it with someone else’s name. I have a whole story involving Executioner but I’ll save it for the villain thread.

    Patriot/Eli Bradley

    I wanted there to be some similarities between he and Kate’s stories; even if they come from different environments. Both stories are about overcoming legacy. To get it out of the way, he’s not related to Isaiah Bradley. But he and several members of his family believe they are. His great grandfather did serve with Isaiah and consider him to be the real Captain America. He used the lie to inspire his descendants. Isaiah can barely communicate because of the damage done to his body. But, if he could, he would not break the illusion for Eli. So, already, Eli has a lot to live up to. He’s a high achiever and puts in the work you’d expect of someone wanting to be Captain America.

    Iron Lad’s records indicate that someone with Eli’s name does something impactful in the future. He doesn’t even know if it is this Eli but uses half truths and a bogus replica of a Captain America shield to gain Eli’s help. Eli’s arc will involve discovering the truth of his lineage and finding the strength to be his own hero. He co-leads with Kate. Way down the line, he goes through terrigenesis. This forces a reunion of the team. If you’re curious, Eli’s inhuman ability is similar to Sebastian Shaw’s. The harder he’s hit, the stronger and faster he becomes (along with a mild glow that wanes to indicate energy loss). But his threshold isn’t as great and the increased physical ability dissipates quickly. I imagine that it hurts just the same as well. I don’t want it too be too easy for him. I threw out the Mister Hyde stuff and the blood transfusion specifically because if another hero’s revamp.

    GiAnt-Girl

    Cassie Lang - movie geek costumed hero enthusiast a bit spoiled mechanically gifted (but not smart in the exaggerated way that riri or Nadia are) - latent mutant- didnít fully realize what it meant for her father to be Ant-Man until he died - he taught her pretty much everything he knew about cracking computer systems, hot wiring cars, breaking out of zip ties, etc. she feels streetwise but is actually refreshingly naive - she befriends Kate immediately and secretly idolizes her - I chose the name Giant-Girl because, out of all of them, she has the strongest claim of being a legacy hero - she realizes that her dad wasnít a big name but still wants to honor him sheíll change her name after he returns from the dead - as mentioned her genetics led to her internalizing the Pym particles simply by being within the vicinity of her father - we never see her fully realized mutant ability because the particles altered it - but to spell it out, she would have been able to communicate with all of the Cassie Langs across dimensions- they are essentially a hive - itís a scenario that exists for one of her future rogues. Kashmir Vennema (look her up) - my version of Cassie is still sickly as a child (a trait common to pre-mutants) but I opted to not saddle her with heart issues- they wisely avoided it in the movies - I donít see her as a helpless victim- she often gets in over her head because she inherited her dadís impulsiveness

    Yeah, I like those takes, and I can see a possibly larger point in there about the younger generation of heroes being inspired by the older generation, yet developing on their own as heroes and not just imitating or emulating those same characters.

    I don't know if this counts, but I would revamp 616 Miles Morales to be like the Miles from Into the Spider-Verse. The only change I would make is to replace the dead Peter from Miles' origin with one of Peter's clones.
