Following the untimely deaths of the kid Vision 2.0 and Stature and with Patriot moving to New Jersey. I decided to make a list of possible candidates to join the team and I want you guys to know that I don't know every little detail about the characters I'm going to list so forgive me if I got something wrong.
And so my list begins...
Spider-Girl (Anya Corazon)
With the cancellation of her own series that only lasted for 8 or 11 issues, if the Spider-Island tie-in is included, and the cancellation of her own super-team, the Young Allies, she doesn't have anything better to do than to remain as a background character in the Avengers Academy. I don't want to see this character's potential as a bad-ass female superhero be put to waste like how Marvel treated the New X-Men kids. I think she'll be a lot of fun to read with the other Young Avengers especially now that she got spidey powers. Mix that with her martial arts skill and you'd have a fighter even Spider-Man would have a hard time beating.
Hellion (Julian Keller)
As a former member of the New X-Men and with Kyle/Yost's writing, Hellion proved to be more than just a bully. He showed that he loves all his friends to the point that he will fight till the very end, even if he gets stabbed, knocked out and lose both of his hands, he is still one of the first mutants to head to the front lines (and frankly one of the first to be taken out) whenever a friend is in danger. He shows true heroism even if those who he saves counts him as a monster or a bomb waiting to explode he still fights for them and then he gets sent to the infirmary because writers hate him for some reason. Even with the distance between the JGSFHL and New York and the fact that Hellion is more of a mutant-centric type of character I still think a different location and different people would make this under-rated (sometimes hated) character much more interesting than the background/casualty character he is today.
Young Loki (Loki Laufeyson)
I'll be honest, I've only read two issues of Journey into Mystery but those two issues made me love this character and earned a place in my list. Young Loki is different from most Asgardian heroes and with that I mean he doesn't just bash his problems with a hammer. He actually plans everything that he does and chooses the most logical way to approach a situation without causing as much casualties. As the god of mischief he plays with his opponents mind and then uses it to his advantage. Plus, he has to deal with his past self's evil deeds which leads to a lot of people not trusting him.
Finesse (Jeanne Foucault)
Out of all the Avengers Academy kids, Finesse is the only one that peaked my interest even when she's forced into a relationship with Reptil it still didn't deter me from following up with her story. Being a daughter of a former villain and the lack of understanding of emotions makes me wonder what type of interactions will she have with the other Young Avengers. Her melee martial arts specialties will add a human perspective in some of the missions they will have and who doesn't like kung-fu.
That's is all for now, I may add some others later but as of now these are the only ones I could think of. What do you guys think?
