The Marvels’ Ending Teases Yet Another Superhero Team To The MCU, And Here’s How
Upon its release date, The Marvels is drawing mixed reviews from both critics and audiences. However, you can’t deny one thing: Iman Vellani’s Ms. Marvel is easily one of the best parts of the movie with her vibrant personality and stellar acting chops. Some even say that her character is the only thing that holds the movie together.
With Ms. Marvel’s theatrical debut, all the pieces are in place for the Young Avengers, one of the most popular superhero groups in Marvel Comics. As the name suggests, Young Avengers consists of either superheroes in their teenage years, or younger versions of the superheroes themselves. Let’s dive right in, and see what the current Young Avengers roster looks like with the addition of Kamala Khan.
#1. How Did Marvel Introduce The Young Avengers To The MCU?
The ending of The Marvels teases a possible Young Avengers team-up in the future, as Kamala Khan (Iman Vellani) meets Kate Bishop (Hailee Steinfeld) to reveal her plan to establish a team with “remarkable young people”. Of course, comics fans know what they are talking about, since both Kamala and Bishop are parts of the comic’s Young Avengers.
Kamala also mentions that thanks to SABER’s network, she knows about Cassie Lang’s existence, implying that she’ll head to San Francisco to recruit her to the team. Cassie, of course, is another member of the comic Young Avengers, who is also known by the name of Stature.
#2. Who Will Join The MCU’s Young Avengers?
So far, Ms. Marvel, Kate Bishop, and Cassie Lang are the only three members confirmed to be part of the MCU’s Young Avengers team. However, Marvel Studios has already introduced several other team members in the MCU, so it’s highly possible that Kamala will continue to recruit these heroes as well.
For example, Skaar (Wil Deusner), Hulk’s son in She-Hulk, will very much likely become Hulkling, one of the founding members of the Young Avengers. Similarly, we have Eli Bradley(Elijah Richardson), Isiah Bradley’s grandson from The Falcon & The Winter Soldier, ready to take on the role of Patriot.
America Chavez, who made her MCU debut in Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness, could also join the team like in the comics. And while she isn’t part of the team in the comic, Ironheart (Dominique Thorne) could replace the position of Iron Lad in the team, as the latter hasn’t been introduced to the MCU just yet.
From different universes, we have the Maximoff brothers (Julian Hilliard and Jett Klyne) from Earth-838, who, with the right development, could be the Wiccan and Speed of the Young Avengers. Kid Loki, who appears in Loki Season 1, could also be part of the team even though he chose to stay in the Void.
With the resurrection of White Vision in WandaVision, Paul Bettany’s character could join the team as well. And while he isn’t in the MCU just yet, Iron Lad could also make his debut in The Kang Dynasty or Secret Wars, where the Kang variants are heavily involved.
#3. Which Other Young Heroes Can Join The Young Avengers?
Of course, besides the lineup from the comics, the Young Avengers team could be opened for any young and potential superheroes out there. For example, Love from Thor: Love and Thunder, Axl Heimdallson, Phyla from Guardians of the Galaxy, or T’Challa’s son Toussaint could all be part of the youthful group.
If we’re lucky, the Young Avengers could even get their own version of Spider-Man, since Miles Morales is already confirmed to be in the MCU.
