Will AoU bring life back into the Runaways?

Victor is Ultron's 'son' and is destined to kick a lot of the world's superheroes butts in the future. So with Age of Ultron coming back-- does this mean Runaways will have a shot at coming back to comics? Thoughts?

If they are acknowledged at all, that would force the Marvel U to have a character somewhere in the universe notice that Arcade has taken people to Murderworld for Avengers Arena. And since Pym didn't notice HazMat, Mettle, X-23, Reptil, and Juston all getting kidnapped from right out of the school, it seems as though Marvel is determined to let all these teen heroes die while pretending it isn't happening. Molly probably hasn't even noticed that Chase and Nico are gone and trapped on Hunger Games island.

Why are you killing my hopes.. It's bad enough Nico is on the chopping block in AA.. >_>

Runaways are my 2nd favorite team in Marvel. It's really a shame to have them barely even mentioned in Marvel anymore.

I just found out Victor is getting his own miniseries (or one-shot, not sure which) to coincide with the upcoming Ultron event. Who knows, maybe if it's successful Marvel will commission another Runaways series?

And I wouldn't say the Runaways are barely mentioned any more. They kicked Daken's butt last year, and they showed up in Avengers Academy. Plus, at least one of the Arena issues will probably focus on Nick and Chase. I doubt they'll be permanently killed, either.

Not to mention that somehow the X-School is safe, but a building designed and secured by Stark and Pym is somehow flawed enough for Arcade to breach it. There are so many holes in this plot the " VR theory" on another thread is about the only way of salvaging this title.
