Is Marvel getting ready for the Young Avengers?

Have you noticed how the Marvel Cinematic Universe keeps growing and bringing in new fresh-faced heroes to pick up the Avengers' mantle? With so many young heroes being introduced, we can assume Marvel is preparing us for the Young Avengers.

In the comics, the Young Avengers are a group of teenagers who band together to fill the void left by the disbanding of the original Avengers. Incorporating the young team into the MCU could open up a whole new range of storytelling possibilities.

The MCU has already started planting the seeds for the Young Avengers with the introduction of young characters. Let’s take a moment to remember all the young heroes introduced so far.

Kate Bishop

Kate Bishop is a skilled archer who made her debut in the Hawkeye series. Trained by Clint Barton, she's ready to take on any challenge that comes her way.
