Who are the Young Avengers?
The team is a group of powerful teenagers who first met in the Dynasty M saga. In history, Wanda Maximoff loses his head and accidentally removes the mutant gene from thousands of people on Earth.
When Nathaniel Richards (Iron Boy) needs help, a computer algorithm summons the teenagers who would become the Young Avengers to defend him.
The original team consists of Nathaniel, Eli Bradley (Patriot), Billy Kaplan (Wiccano), Teddy Altman (Hulkling), Kate Bishop (Gaviã Arqueira) and Cassie Lang (Stature).
The team eventually helps Wanda to regain his memory and powers, in addition to defeating several villains. All of this, while dealing with problems typical of teenagers, such as dramas, romance and issues with parents.
Throughout the comics, new members are called to the Young Avengers. Check out below the most important heroes of the team that have already had an appearance in the MCU or that should appear in the near future:
