10 Known Young Avengers For Avengers Successors In The MCU, Who Are They?

The MCU has already established a number of cast members for Marvel Studios' possible Young Avengers film. After Avengers: Endgame, the MCU's Phase 4 focused on bringing in fresh faces to the brand to take the place of aging or retired characters or those who tragically perished at the hands of Thanos, the Mad Titan. Numerous of these new heroes have come from a younger age, which has sparked speculation that the Young Avengers of the MCU may come together in Phases 5, 6, or later.
The Young Avengers were introduced by Marvel Comics in 2005 as a group of amateur vigilantes who were eager to carry on the heroic traditions of Earth's Mightiest Heroes. They are first undervalued by the more seasoned heroes due to their inexperience, but they quickly establish themselves as competent superheroes. Since so many new characters have been introduced, especially in Phase 4, it is easy to overlook hints foreshadowing the MCU's Young Avengers, but the majority of the Marvel Comics squad have already found their way into live-action. This indicates that even though there may not be any current plans for a Marvel Studios Young Avengers project, their collaboration is definitely not too far off.

Kate Bishop, A.K.A. Hawkeye

Although Lila Barton's potential as a superhero was hinted at in the opening moments of Avengers: Endgame, it is the unconnected vigilante Kate Bishop who stands up to the plate and takes over as the new Hawkeye for the Young Avengers squad. In Hawkeye on Disney+, Hailee Steinfeld played Bishop against Jeremy Renner's Clint Barton, in which the first Avenger trained the MCU's subsequent valiant archer. As a founding member of the Young Avengers in Marvel Comics, Kate Bishop's appearance in Phase 4 was highly anticipated, especially given that the series ending gave the impression that she would be taking up the identity of Hawkeye as her own for good.

Cassie Lang, A.K.A. Stature/Stinger

After a five-year time leap in Avengers: Endgame, Abby Ryder Fortson, who played Cassie Lang in Ant-Man, matured up and was momentarily replaced by Emma Fuhrmann. Cassie will don her own superhero outfit for the first time in Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania, following her family on their Quantum Realm journey as her character is once again recast with Kathryn Newton. After her father's sad passing, Cassie Lang joins the Young Avengers as Stature and then Stinger in Marvel Comics, using similar size-changing powers to those of her father.

Elijah Bradley, A.K.A. Patriot

Elijah Bradley is one of the most intriguing characters in Marvel Comics' Young Avengers. Despite being the grandson of super-soldier Isaiah Bradley, both of whom made their MCU debuts in The Falcon and the Winter Soldier, Elijah Bradley initially joined the team without any superhuman skills. Eli ultimately developed his own abilities, supposedly as a result of receiving blood from his grandpa, however, it was later discovered that this was really due to his usage of the drug mutant growth hormone (MGH). Elijah Richardson might perhaps play Eli Bradley again in Captain America: New World Order.

Tommy & Billy Maximoff, A.K.A. Wiccan & Speed

While still residing in the Westview Hex, Tommy and Billy start to show off their talents. In contrast, Thomas Shepherd and William Kaplan, their reborn selves, are the Young Avengers in Marvel Comics after discovering their superhuman abilities. Billy, going by the name Wiccan, can wield magic like his mother, but is seen to be far less dangerous than Tommy, who goes by the name Speed and is a speedster like his uncle Quicksilver. It's possible that the brothers will appear in Agatha: Coven of Chaos, which is part of Phase 5, setting up the Young Avengers project for the MCU.

America Chavez

America gets enlisted into the Young Avengers in Marvel Comics after the resurrected Loki tries to convince her to kill Wiccan, yet she finally becomes a member of the group. America Chavez soon rose to prominence as one of Marvel's most powerful and influential characters as she boldly represented the LGBTQ+ community. Her training as a sorceress was hinted at by Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness, therefore her skill set in a possible Young Avengers project would be highly remarkable.

Kid Loki

Loki is a fictional character from Marvel Comics who, in an effort to start over, defies death by reviving as a young boy and joining the Young Avengers. This scenario has been altered for the MCU since Loki, as played by Jack Veal in Loki season 1 on Disney+, discovered his kid variation in the Void. Except for the knowledge that he murdered his brother, Thor, and as a result was removed from his timeline, nothing is known about the MCU's Kid Loki. While Kid Loki made the decision to remain in the Void, future MCU films may see him return and reclaim his rightful role as a Young Avengers member.

Kamala Khan, A.K.A. Ms. Marvel

In Ms. Marvel on Disney+, Iman Vellani makes her acting debut as Kamala Khan, a.k.a. Ms. Marvel, who gained her mutant power owing to her great-grandmother's enigmatic bracelet. Even though Kamala is frequently connected with Marvel Comics' Champions, the Young Avengers squad in the MCU would be the ideal place for her. From her comic book past as an Inhuman, Kamala's roots as a mutant in the MCU were also altered, which could hint at her upcoming membership in the X-Men. Prior to that, though, Ms. Marvel would blend in seamlessly with the other Young Avengers in the MCU thanks to her future role in The Marvels with Carol Danvers and Monica Rambeau.

Riri Williams, A.K.A. Ironheart

In spite of Morgan Stark's inclusion in Avengers: Endgame, Riri Williams has the responsibility to carry on Iron Man's MCU legacy in the aftermath of his Infinity Saga sacrifice. In Black Panther: Wakanda Forever, Dominique Thorne made her acting debut as Riri Williams, a.k.a. Ironheart, and made her on-screen debut while dressed in her homemade armor made from parts of Stark technology. Thorne is slated to reprise the character in her lone Disney+ series Ironheart, and while in Marvel Comics she takes her position with the Champions, this series may ultimately result in her being the Young Avengers' armored member.

Axl & Love From Thor: Love & Thunder

In Thor: Love & Thunder, two new characters were revealed who could join the roster of Young Avengers in the MCU. Idris Elba's Heimdall's son, Astrid "Axl" Heimdallson, possess skills like those of his father, including the capacity to communicate with entities located thousands of light-years distant. The Young Avengers would also benefit from having Gorr's daughter Love, who is adopted by Thor at the conclusion of Love & Thunder and who appears to be endowed with Eternity's power. Being a part of the Young Avengers would be a fantastic opportunity to carry on Thor's legacy, especially since Chris Hemsworth's daughter, India Rose Hemsworth, plays Love.


The youthful Avengers are created by the Vision for the first time in Marvel Comics to fill the hole left when the Avengers split up in the Avengers Disassembled storyline of 2004–2005, despite the fact that the MCU's Vision isn't exactly a youthful hero. This version of the synthezoid may soon reunite the MCU's Young Avengers after WandaVision sees the MCU's new White Vision depart for uncharted territory after regaining his memories and heading off to his own spinoff series, Vision Quest, which is presently in development. Everything is virtually ready for Marvel Studios' Young Avengers project, despite the fact that other significant members like Hulkling, Noh-Varr, and Prodigy have yet to appear in the MCU.
