Legacy isn't a dirty word...but it's an irrelevant one. It's not important what our parents did. It matters what WE do. Someone has to save the world. You're someone. Do the math. The critically acclaimed team of Kieron Gillen and Jamie McKelvie reinvent the teen super hero comic for the 21st century, uniting Wiccan, Hulkling and Kate "Hawkeye" Bishop with Kid Loki, Marvel Boy and Ms. America. No pressure, right? As a figure from Loki's past emerges, Wiccan makes a horrible mistake that comes back to bite everyone on their communal posteriors. Fight scenes! Fake IDs! And plentiful feels! (aka "meaningful emotional character beats" for people who aren't on tumblr.) Young Avengers is as NOW! as the air in your lungs, and twice as vital. Hyperbole is the BEST! THING! EVER!

From the art to the story, this arc of Young Avengers is by far the best. Witty dialogue will keep you entertained, and the depth of the characters will keep you hooked. You will find yourself falling in love with the characters instantly, because of their realistic qualities, and interesting personalities. Young Avengers (Vol. 2) is worth every penny you spend on it.
Love the cover. Love this and the last picture near the end, that made me think, I love the Avengers movie and well these characters are just awesome. Now with Young Avengers I hadn't heard of before. Yeah, not much of a comic reader but slowly getting there. Anyway, this one was a fun read. Love the art. It was interesting to see the different and some familiar characters.
