He returns home to be scolded by his boyfriend Wiccan because the event was filmed by a bystander and now everyone thinks there is a new Skrull invasion. Wiccan angrily says they agreed to stop playing superhero; Hulkling softly retorts that he fell in love with a superhero and it’s important to him; Wiccan relents, and resolves to help him. Back in his own room, he uses his own magic to scan possible worlds. This draws the attention of Kid Loki who was in NYC diner; he teleports to the roof of Wiccan’s building, but finds Ms America waiting for him there.

Later, though, the mother reveals herself as some sort of shapeshifting monster, and murders the foster parents.

Solicit Synopsis

Legacy isn’t a dirty word... but it’s an irrelevant one. It’s not important what our parents did. It matters what WE do. Someone has to save the world. You’re someone. Do the math. The critically acclaimed team of Gillen/McKelvie/Wilson (with added Norton Sauce) decide to reinvent the teen superhero comic for the 21st century, uniting Wiccan, Hulkling and Hawkeye with Loki, Marvel Boy and Miss America.

No pressure. Young Avengers is as NOW! as the air in your lungs, and twice as vital. It’s the book that knows Hyperbole is the BEST! THING! EVER!
