Publisher’s Blurb:
Legacy isn’t a dirty word? but it’s an irrelevant one. It’s not important what their parents did. It matters what they do. Someone has to save the world. Wiccan, Hulkling and Hawkeye unite with Loki, Marvel Boy and Ms. America to do just that!

Reviewer’s Comments:

Kieron Gillen weaves a new web of action, adventure and betrayal in Young Avengers #1. What has easily been one of Marvel Now’s most anticipated titles finally arrives but will it be all we hoped for?

This issue starts off with a bang or actually after a bang(sorry bad joke). The story immediately escalates as Noh-Var and Kate Bishop take on a Skrull hit squad. Back on earth Hulkling is finding the simple life less than ideal and takes up super heroics once again, Much to the chagrin of his partner Wiccan who is about to make a very terrible mistake. Now it’s up to Loki the god of mischief himself to put together a team that can face the threat Wiccan sets in motion but of course if Loki is involved nothing is as it seems.

This issue is quite frankly amazing. Gillen once again delivers us what no other could. The pace of the story and it’s somewhat chaotic setup work perfectly on every level. The art is great and suits the book quite well. There was one small thing that bugged me it seemed like many of the characters faces were stuck in these kind of overly emotive expressions. It just seemed weird for them to constantly look shocked or surprised.
All of that aside I thoroughly enjoyed this issue. I wouldn’t presume to guess what master plan Gillen has in mind for the series but I have no doubt it will be great.
