A secret fail-safe program was designed by the Avengers member, Vision, to be utilized to recruit the next generation of Earth's Mightiest Heroes, in case the Avengers were ever destroyed or disbanded.
The program was found in the Vision's hard drive by Iron Lad who had been looking for a way to contact and hopefully reassemble the Avengers. Instead he found the program and used it to recruit and assemble the Young Avengers.
All future and/or possible recruits on the program, appear to have some significant tie to a member of the Avengers or to the Avengers history.

- Unseen possible recruits could be:
- Erista (child of Wolverine with a Savage Land native named Gahck)
- Tarene (Asgardian goddess and ally of Thor)
- Tsu-Zana (mutant Kree, contrast to Ms. Marvel)
- Rebecca Barnes (Counter-Earth version of Bucky)
- Samantha Wilson (Falcon's daughter)
- X-23 (Wolverine's clone)
- Power Man (Contrast to Power Man and Iron Fist)
- Spider-Girl (Arachnid hero with powers similar to Spider-Man's)
- Thunderstrike (A successor to his father, the original Thunderstrike.)
- Reptil (A Dinosaur variation of Silverclaw.)
- Darkhawk (Contrast to Falcon, even though he was a temporary Avenger before.)
- Eli Bradley, the grandson of the Black Captain America, was not originally identified as a part of the Avengers Fail-Safe Program, but his superpowered uncle Josiah was. However, Josiah had been missing for years, so when Iron Lad arrived at the Bradley's home in the Bronx and explained his need for a Super Soldier, Eli lied and claimed that he had inherited his grandfather's super powers due to a blood transfusion. Eli then began taking Mutant Growth Hormone to artificially grant him Super Soldier-like powers.
- Stature was not on the Avengers Fail-Safe Program, despite being the daughter of Ant-Man, Iron Lad theorized that perhaps like herself Vision was unaware she possessed the ability to alter her size.
- Due to Stature's absence from the Avengers Fail-Safe Program, it can be assumed that all possible recruits possess superhuman abilities to be on the program. Meaning any current young hero with super power's could be possible recruits for the Young Avenges.
