- Children. He's using children. I should't be surprised. Children are always in the front lines of a war. At least this won't take long. One look at me and they're frozen. Like they're looking at the angel of death. It's a good start.

Synopsis for "Dead-End Kids"
The kids make it to New York City, and arrange a meeting with Wilson Fisk, the former Kingpin. Fisk tells the teens that he will offer them protection and lodging from the government if they steal a mystical artifact for him. The members of the team have some trouble accepting the fact that they are working for Fisk, but they still decide to steal the artifact. The team succeeds in taking the artifact from it's vault, but as they head out, they are confronted by the Punisher, who is followed by a winged monster. They then begin a three-way battle.
The kids start running in a different direction. Superstar JOSS WHEDON (Buffy the Vampire Slayer, ASTONISHING X-MEN) and rising star MICHAEL RYAN (NEW EXCALIBUR, NEW X-MEN) take the Runaways to the Big Apple. While there, they make surprising allies and even more surprising enemies. This is the cannot-miss book of 2007!
