All the kids, Kate, Kam, Scotty, Riri, Sammy, were with Tony.

They’re all on their way to help Miles.

“Miles is such a good kid”. Tony loves Miles and all his tinies so much. He’d fight anyone for them, no hesitation.

Tony is a proud dad because his tinies are doing the right thing. He taught them right.

Sam, Kamala, Miles and Riri are gonna be devastated after Tony’s disappearance (unless he told them beforehand what was going to happen!).

SUPREME YOUNG AVENGERS

Front Row: Nova, Sister Grimm, Patriot, Prodigy, and Araña
Back Row: Reptil, America, and Hawkeye

The Director of SHIELD, Nick Fury, decided that to ensure that the world would continue to have Avengers, he launched the “Young Avengers Initiative” where he sought out young superheroes who could become the next generation of Avengers. He sought out his old contacts, Janet van Dyne aka “Wasp” and James Rhodes aka “War Machine” who happily offered their tutelage and guidance to help the next generation of superheroes.

Of the recruits, Janet and Rhodey decided that the team would be co-led by America Chavez aka “America” and Elijah Bradley aka “Patriot”. With these two young superheroes, the team set off to help ensure the safety of the world while also learning to be Avengers at the same time.
