A visually stunning collection containing the first six Young Avengers comic books, Young Avengers: Sidekicks chronicles the beginnings of the mysterious group of teenage superheroes that patterned themselves after the original Avengers (Thor, Iron Man, The Hulk, Ant-Man, et al.).
Although the original Avengers have been long disbanded, the sudden appearance of a quartet of adolescent crime fighters, tagged the Young Avengers by the press, brings them to the attention of Captain America and Iron Man, who, fearing for the safety of the well-meaning youths, vow to find them and shut them down for their own good. But the four teenagers -- Iron Lad, Patriot, Asgardian, and the Hulkling -- are much more than super-powered fanboys; they're on a mission to save the world from the infamous Kang the Conqueror, a time-traveling super-villain from the 30th century who has returned to the 21st century in search of his rebellious younger self, who, as Iron Lad, is trying to defeat his older version by forming the Young Avengers. But if Iron Lad and the rest of the Young Avengers succeed in destroying Kang, will they irrevocably alter their own reality in the process?
This action-packed collection of Young Avengers comic books should not only appeal to longtime fans of Marvel Comics and the much-historied Marvel universe but also young readers and comic book neophytes who will surely find inspiration in this exciting next generation of cool, crime-fighting superheroes….
