    That Runaways/Young Avengers mini is going to be badass. Is Vaughn writing that one?

    no, unfortunately, and neither is Heinberg. But they've both given their blessing to Zeb Wells, who is the one that will be writing it

    they have a choice, of sorts. I'm certain if they *****ed and moaned to Marvel, they would have chosen another writer, or not done the mini. Or Vaughan and Heinberg could have said nothing, but as it is they've both voiced their support for him.

    Zebs done a bunch of things, notably the last New Warriors mini

    I think the reason for being that teenage superheroes are back is because of who is writing the books. Johns is writing Teen Titans and it didn't take that long to figure out that Heinberg is an excellent writer.

    This is not a rise,just a fad.It all began with the Teen Titans cartoon and the Runaways comic from Marvel.These sorts of things can not last long term,the best at what can be done is young adults ala The New Teen Titans.Not teens.

    I disagree. I got into the Runaways because it was a good story that really grabbed me by starting off strong and keeping a good pace. I started with vol. 2 and I didn't have to read the first vol. (though I want to) to enjoy it greatly. After reading issue 1 I knew the characters, their powers, and the situation. Can't ask for much more.

    Great characterization, humor, and action with some decent art. That's not a fad, that's just a good comic book.

    As long as this doesn't signal the return of Teen Tony.

    you do realize that if that's the starting point, this is a three year "fad"?

    actually, most of Marvel's heroes were babies to begin with, just like all human beings. Or if you believe the pro-life side, they were embrios to begin with.

    Actually, they were all figments of the imagination originally.
