This is my chance to take a serious crack at reinventing the Marvel teen super hero for the 21st century,” said writer Kieron Gillen. “So I recruited my favorite collaborators in a Dirty-Dozen fashion, and set about the task. I couldn't be more excited if I was having adrenaline pumped into me intravenously. If the original Young Avengers was about being 16, this is about being 18. It's a small difference, but an important one.
Besides Loki and Ms America, we'll also see Wiccan, Hulkling, Kate Bishop and Noh-Varr. Gillen said in an interview with CBR there will be other characters brought in later but wants a smaller team than what he had on UNCANNY X-MEN.
Each issue will feature special augmented reality content through the Marvel AR app.
