    I'm an itty bit sad for the loss of the previous thread (I assume its lost) but I hope this thread winds up brimming with discussion brought on by legit YOUNG AVENGER publication(s) this year.

    Still desperate for event-level-follow-up to the developments made in Ewing's New Avengers, specifically pertaining to Mister Altman's would-be-space-ruling.

    As much as I absolutely ADORE the Champions, their idealistic make the world a better place than our predecessors left it approach to heroing is THE mission I was really hoping the Young Avengers would inevitably take on, but the Champs are doing a FINE job of it and I applaud them.

    Kate's doing fine work as an independent contractor of crime solving with her Motley Crew of powered and not-powered folk in LA.
    Speed is presumably globe trotting between part time jobs here and there.
    David's helping Karma run her business and/or infected with the Techno Organic Virus and currently MIA, I believe, but potentially on deck as a reserve Champion I think(?)

    I'd love to see/know what Cass is up to. She and her Dad teamed up last we heard right?

    Cass and that old guy are protecting Miami from Florida Man.
    Dance games are my divine punishment from the Lord. May my furnace be forever fueled.

    Yeah, it's locked.

    That's correct, he was among six characters revealed to be reservists in today's Champions #1.

    Well, I guess now I can say I'm on the first page of a YA thread. Yay?

    Happy 2019, fellow Youngsters (if that's not the official name for the YA fandom, I just made it up ). May 2019 finally bring our babies back in action!

    A new thread to get all excited over every time there is a new post. You know, just in case it's news. One of these days, it will be.

    These are the characters I haven't read but want to because I'm immediately drawn to this guy.

    I know nothing about him except his relation to Wanda, his love for Teddy and The Sound of Music. I saw him dressed Magneto's family as Von Trapp and I know he's the one.

    I made a huge concept for how I'd do a Young Avengers animated series and I actually did have Namora join the team later on since she can technically count as a legacy character/

    Namora is a separate character. Namorita is actually her clone (as is Water Snake, I think?).

    I meant to say Namorita actually.

    I just wish there was a Namorella to make things even more confusing.
    Continuity, even in a "shared" comics universe is often insignificant if not largely detrimental to the quality of a comic.

    Die - House/Powers of X - Once & Future - Runaways

    Nobody cares about what you don't like, they barely care about what you do like.

    Grace Randolph has just reignited those MCU Young Avengers rumors, btw:

    Not sure how reliable she is with this kind of insider information, though.
