How the MCU is Building it’s Very Own Young Avengers
One of the most interesting teams that have developed over the years of Marvel comics may be coming to the big screen, as various appearances make us believe the MCU is building its very own Young Avengers.
The Marvel comics universe is filled with teams of all sorts, that combat all kinds of fearsome foes seeking to wreak havoc on the universe.
The Avengers, The X-Men, and The Fantastic Four have consistently been some of the more important collectives; all operating with superhumans of tremendous power, combining to be powerful enough to fend off the most dangerous enemies.
There is one team that has filled a very interesting niche within the Marvel Universe, and that team is the Young Avengers; a group of much younger superhero’s taking after some of the pretty established Marvel heroes.
With the recent developments of Marvel Studios’ ambitious and creative Phase Four, one thing is very certain; the MCU is building their very own Young Avengers.
If we take a trip through the source material, there are so many appearances throughout this phase that bring proof to the idea that Marvel is focused on crafting a team of young Avengers within their Cinematic Universe.
Perhaps the biggest development in the formation of this team is the two Disney+ series that enter on prominent Young Avengers members; Kate Bishop’s Hawkeye, and Kamala Kahn’s Ms. Marvel.
Bishop was the centerpiece of her own series- with the character learning from the originator of the Hawkeye mantle- and the latter, Kahn, will be the focal point of her own series before joining forces with captain Marvel in the character’s long-awaited sequel.
That isn’t where the Young Avengers appearances end, however, as the latest phase has been focused on introducing these characters rather slowly.
Elijah Bradley- a character known in the comics as The Patriot- was shown in Falcon and the Winter Soldier, as the grandson to the previous Captain America, Isaiah Bradley.
He was the original leader of the first young Avengers incarnation and holds a vital place of importance to the team.
America Chavez, a vital member of the young Avengers teams in the source material, is also set to make her MCU debut in the highly anticipated Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness.
Her ability to travel throughout dimensions leads many to assume she will be very important to that film and should have a very important role in the MCU moving forward.
There was also the appearance of Billy and Tommy Maximoff in WandaVision; two characters that were clearly inspired by prominent young Aveners characters Wiccan and Speed.
Wiccan has the magical prowess of his mother, will Speed inherited the mutant ability from his uncle, the two characters are continuous member of ht team; with Wiccan as one of Marvels prominent gay characters who later marries the Hulkling
Loki also featured a Young Avengers that is a variant of the iconic Thor villain, with the Marvel character is known as Kid Loki appearing in the episode in which the MCU Loki gets lost in the Void.
With Cassie Lang set to have a major role in the upcoming Ant-Man: Quantomania, many expect her to be explored further in the film, with the team centered around these various cameos or smaller appearances sprinkled throughout Phase Four.
The MCU is building their very own Young Avengers team, and we cannot wait to see just how all of these characters prove to be part of it moving forward.
