A little know fact is that I have interest other than US History and one of those is literally every LGBT character marvel has release, and since the young avengers is pretty much entirely LGBT i’m hooked. Also I literally can’t find an answer, is Teddy actually a prince or is it a different title? 

Despite being a leader of the Young Avengers, poor Patriot (Elijah Bradley) looks like he had been demoted into the background while Kate Bishop the second-in-command is front and centre. This looks like a foreshadowing to Kate Bishop’s popularity and her rise to Hawkeye series as well as the demotion of Patriot by sending him to Comic Book Limbo after this storyline.

what young avengers taught me

eli taught me to stand up for what you believe in no matter who tells you you’re wrong

kate taught me that you don’t need powers or training or much of anything to fight for the right thing

teddy taught me that being kind to everyone is not a weakness and neither is unexplainable love

billy taught me that having depression is something that you can recover from and that believing in yourself is an important step

tommy taught me that it doesn’t matter where you started it just matters where you’re going

jonas taught me about being an individual

cassie taught me to respect my roots

noh varr taught me that a positive outlook on life is a good thing

david taught me that intelligence and wisdom are badass

america taught me that sometimes you just need to kick ass

nate taught me to not fuck around with time travel or you might become kang the conqueror

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.

should you fight this young avenger?
  • kate: 200% fight kate. she probably blew up something that day and knows it. what a poop. fight kate. fight kate all the way. if you don't fight kate, chances are she'll try to fight you. fight her.
  • eli: well you could. you'll probably hurt his feelings but you could. also he might lecture you in the middle of the fight so if you're into that. But make sure to have a good reason. If no then there are better people to target.
  • cassie: wtf? why? isn't she like actually 12 now? Who fights twelve year olds? Don't fight twelve year olds. Don't fight cassie. Don't touch cassie. what's wrong with you?
  • billy: sweet gullible little child. why would you fight him? no. answer me. do you just get off on punching people who have done zero things to deserve it in their lifetime? How can you make him sad? he's just trying to be a good cookie. let him be a good cookie. (also he inherited mommy's flaring temper and magic powers so even if you're a monster who will fight small children it's probably not a good idea to fight billy)
  • america: no see, you have no say in this. if she fights you, then you're fighting her whether your punk ass wants to or not. You'll lose but it'll at least be a good show.
  • teddy: no. he's just already trying his best. what more do you want from him? what more can you take? he'll probably sit you down and ask you why you're doing this and then be supportive and stuff. really. why fight this nerd?
  • tommy: do not even touch. he doesn't deserve it. you may WANT to fight him and I'm here to alert you that that's kinda normal. but I'm telling you to resist because this small baby has had enough shit in his life and needs to be kept away from fights. no fighting. leave him be. also he blows things up and you probably couldn't catch him anyways.
  • noh varr: just. do. it. why not? might as well. he most likely has done something. and if not, he probably won't even mind. he'll think it's a cool trend or something.
  • david: fight david. what a nerd. push into a locker. he knows like 20 different ways out anyways, he's fine.
  • loki: fight loki. fight loki for no reason. fight loki for shitty reasons. there's always a reason to fight loki. relentlessly fight loki. laugh and fight loki. invite your friends and fight him together. hell, invite loki and fight loki.
  • jonas: why would you even?
  • nate: fight him. do it. he'll cry. you'll feel kinda bad but then you'll REMEMBER and then feel much less bad. fight.
  • looks like a cinnamon roll but could actually kill you: Kate Bishop
  • looks like they could kill you but is actually a cinnamon roll: Teddy Altman
  • looks like a cinnamon roll and is actually a cinnamon roll: Billy Kaplan
  • looks like they could kill you and would actually kill you: America Chavez
  • the sinnamon roll: TOMMY.

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.


Young Avengers

hey yo when i said i’m gonna draw chibis of ALL of them, i meant ALL of them, even the sinnamon rolls. full view for maximum cuteness.

their little description thingies are from the vol. 2 character lists plus i just made some up (because that cute lil billy doesn’t look really angsty to me tbh). and yep i used old designs based on personal preference. voila. i am tired. i am staying away from chibis for the next few days.
