Iron Lad


Superhero Aesthetics // Young Avengers

We’ve got a super-soldier, a giant girl, a robot from the 30th century, a Skrull/Kree super-soldier, Billy (who, yeah, is kind of lame, but can cast spells), an Olympic class archer and martial artist, and… me.



One comic book a day challenge - day 7

Young Avengers: The Children’s Crusade / Iron Lad One-shot (2011)

I accidentally skipped it while reading CC. Has a lot of Teddy x Billy cuteness and not so young Young Avengers.

So I just noticed. In Iron Man 3, Tony Stark teamed up with a little kid named Harley Keener, who acted as a not-so-subtle parallel to young Tony. In Ant-Man, we are being introduced to Cassie Lang (albeit little kid version).

Conclusion: This is all a really long build-up to a Young Avengers spin-off. Just have Harley say his real name is Nathaniel, have the Scarlet Witch and Vision become a couple to introduce Wiccan and Speed, have Hawkeye’s daughter legally change her name to Kate Bishop, get Hulkling and Patriot in there somehow, and boom.

Plus points if you bring back the little kid who played young Loki to play Kid Loki.


Would anyone be interested in participating if I organized a Young Avengers coloring book project? Please leave a comment in the notes! If enough people are interested I’ll do it! It’d be inspired by @pjocoloringbookproject

Also, please reblog if you want to help spread the word!

It’d be free to download for everyone!

If no one is interested I can delete this and we can pretend like it never happen.
