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.
“Yondu is the leader of the Ravagers, a group of Space Pirates. Yondu found Peter Quill when the ship he piloted malfunctioned and left him stranded. The Ravagers rescued him as Peter tried to steal their ship. Peter managed to outsmart every member of the crew and even knocked out Yondu before capturing him.
After he woke up, Yondu managed to set himself free from his restraints, attacked Peter, and gave him a choice between letting himself be released to space without more trouble or getting killed right there. Peter instead asked him if he could join his crew.
Yondu wasn’t sold on the idea, but after he found out Peter was like him, a kid without a home, Yondu changed his mind and let him stay in the ship with his pirate crew as the cleaning boy. Peter decided to stay and try to learn everything he could from space while he was part of the pirate crew.”
