For fans of Marvel’s comic book and inematic Universes, “The Avengers”
is a team whose name brings to mind different members. Some may think
of Captain America, The Hulk and Ant-Man while others think of Thor,
Black Widow and Hawkeye. As amazing as these teams are, there is
something special about the teen lineup of the “Young Avengers”, especially the team put together by regular creative collaborators Kieron Gillen and Jamie McKelvie.
While the Young Avengers’ original lineup had members that were
connected to The Avengers, this relaunched roster had each member
attempting to distance themselves from the past. With a backdrop of
gorgeous art, creative comic panels and a youthful spirit, the Young
Avengers could strike out on their own and save the world. Here are
15 reasons why this run is the best.
- david and genya adopt him the moment he sets foot on ravkan soil, that’s not even a question - nikolai, the ultimate sexy dad, announces kuwei is his favourite kid and he really is bc he’s an orphan like him and he’s been neglected like him so long story short he shares custody with david and genya - which doesn’t mean kuwei is spoiled or privileged in ANY way or shape, it just means he’s appreciated and seen - however, he wants to pursue science and chemistry and all that jazz so nikolai enrolls him into the best school and david is his private tutor and his dad DID create jurda parem so needless to say the kid is a walking prodigy in maths and physics - in a modern setting, kuwei is comfortable enough to use grindr and stuff and all he ever knows is acceptance and love and he’s never ever shamed for wanting to express his sexuality - best friends with nadia!!! since she’s a bit of an underdog herself (she’s always been a part of the team but guess what? she’s also always been slept on just like kuwei) and i honestly don’t see her ~click~ with zoya or the other girls at the palace so they could both use a friend - kuwei is THE HOTTEST thing in ravka - kuwei juggles two casual boyfriends bc he’s not looking for anything serious and neither are they but then he meets nadia and adrik is there - one week and three clumsy kisses in the dark later they start dating bc kuwei deserves a soft boy who’d worship the ground he walks on and have heart eyes for him 24/7 and that’s adrik 10000% (i headcanon adrik as yet another bi icon btw) - alina pops over for tea every once in awhile and she’s like “you remind me of someone” - (i’m crying, you’re crying, baghra is crying from the other side) - but then she looks at his eyes and sees they’re gold not silver and she smiles to herself, “nevermind” - and she LOVES kuwei like she’s fiercely protective of this nice, quiet orphan kid who just wanted an actual home and maybe a new family - and now he has two bc the dregs still visit him everytime inej has business in ravka with her ship and nina’s there like all the time so!! - speaking of nina, she probably feeds kuwei waffles bc it’s ~food for the soul~ and she just wants kuwei to finally be happy where he is - kuwei is quiet, almost shy, (like david) but his ears are always turned in the newest gossip’s direction (like genya) - he always Knows Things™
- but he’s smart enough to only say them when it would benefit him/his situation, otherwise he’s actually very good at keeping secrets - that’s actually it, he’s hella smart and it throws people off bc they’re like “hahahaha well he doesn’t even talk that much!!” and then kuwei smiles at them, plots a quick, bloodless revenge in his head and five minutes later they’re being exiled on grounds of discrimination and treachery, bitch you thought™
- DID I SAY HE’S HELLA SMART AND HAPPY AND LOVED bc he is - even kaz admits he’d like to take him on one of his kruge hunts but nikolai is like brekker pls this is my son we’re talking about - kuwei in the background: technically, i’m not your- nikolai: mY SON RIGHT THERE - idk why but i feel like he’d grow out his hair?? and maybe keep it in a fancy ponytail?? and it’d look so good on him
