    It's looking good! Though I want them to join as a team! It's #3 and it still doesn't look like it's going to happen...

    Variant cover by DAVID LAFUENTE
    • Kate Bishop finally turns up!
    • A lovely day trip to Central Park for a group of cheery youngsters.
    • LIES! It’s not lovely as they’re being pursued by bad guys and it’s not a day trip as (er) it’s at night.
    • A shameless retcon into Marvel Boy’s history!

    • We wanted to just write “Screaming! Screaming! Screaming!” for this solicit, but we’re told we need boring old facts. :(
    • Anyway! The Young Avengers road trip across the multiverse goes proper crazy as it reaches it’s destination. It’s destination is mainly EXCITEMENT and HEARTBREAK.
    • Several Young Avengers decide what to do next. The question is, whether what they do next is to be Young Avengers...
    • Honestly, screaming.

    Gillen seems to be suggesting that Hulkling and Wiccan's relationship is literally too good to be true. A breakup would be really rough, but I hope Wiccan isn't outright killed off!

    Wiccan and Hulking's relationship is one of the major selling points of the comic imo... so if anything they're probably just toying with it...

    That relationship is a big draw for the book and they know that. I don't think they'll mess it up. Billy and Teddy are one of the best (if not the only) current good representations of gay couples.

    Did DC screw up Apollo and Midnighter along with 90% of their publishing line with the New 52?

    All they do is fight and talk about how they don't trust each other. Hooray Stormwatch.

    Variant cover by JIM CHEUNG
    • The book where when a character says “I did it half an hour ago” normally means doing “it” half an hour ago reaches its first epic conclusion.
    • Why Did Loki Do It? No one kno... okay, we’ll tell you...Well, part of it.
    • Miss America probably punches someone. She usually does.

    Confusing, but I am thoroughly intrigued. Were we supposed to know that Kid Loki had been replaced by evil Original Recipe Loki?

    Yeah they wouldn't be stupid enough to do that, and I think both of them love the characters too much.

    I wouldn't say it's totally out of the realm of possibility. People break up. Even wonderful gay couples.

    oh they will toy with it and create drama, but they are a major selling point of this comic and are easily the characters with the most fandom in this book (not counting adult loki, just kid loki aspect) and they wont be breaking them up or killing them off any time soon. just threaten it for more drama

    I mean, would people really just drop the book outright if they broke up, though? Even though it's clearly part of a larger story, what with Gillen hinting that their storybook romance may literally be too good to be true?

    Billy and Teddy don't exactly have a 20-year marriage that influenced countless stories...

    No. But as of right now they're really the only characters in the book Im invested in.

    If they weren't in the book, it wouldn't be Young Avengers. Kate alone cannot carry the name brand.

    Yes she can :argh:.
    In all seriousness, it's been a great first arc. I can't wait for the second part.

    Don't get me wrong. I like Kate a lot, but you need at least 3 Young Avengers to make it a Young Avengers books. Otherwise it's one of the Young Avengers in a new teen team.
