Meet The Team: Young Avengers
With two weeks to go until Young Avengers 1 is released, I thought I better actually do this or forever hold my peace. Well, that’s unlikely. I never hold my peace.
You know what I mean.
Basically, the idea being I have a wander through the cast of opening cast of Young Avengers. Not that it’s really a team, but “Meet The Team” seems to be the lens we look at superbooks through, and who I am I to deny convention?
(Seriously? - Gillen’s Sneery Subconscious)
Anyway - I go through the cast, write some things, link to a few songs from my own personal Young Avengers playlist and talk about why they’re connected to the individual. I was going to use some of my fave fan art of the characters, but decided there’s something a little parasitic about that. Assume this is my shout-out. Mad love, etc.
I also thought it worth doing this, as from my casual watching the Young Avengers tag seems to be an exciting battleground. To my eye, it seems to primarily caused by the complete lack of NEW INPUT into the community. When you’ve got people writing big serious critiques on the amount of styling products a character is choosing to use, you know that they are absolutely pregnant with desire and are looking for anything to latch their thoughts onto.
So I figure six random essays give people other stuff to think about. Worth stressing that I’m clearly angling whatever I’m writing to not actually spoiling the book. I’ll be talking about initial thoughts and larger concepts rather than where I ended up - or where I’m planning on taking the characters. I’d warn anyone against reading too much into them. That said, I’d warn against anyone reading too little into them.
Ask the Journey Into Mystery readers. I can be tricksy.
I also have no idea what I’m going to write. There will be very little (if any) proofreading. This will be fun.
This is the opening track of my Young Avengers soundtrack.
It’s Amy Aka Spent Gladiator 1 by The Mountain Goats.
Do every stupid thing that makes you feel alive
Do every stupid thing to try to drive the dark away
Let people call you crazy for the choices that you make
Climb limits past the limits
Jump in front of trains all day
And stay alive
Welcome to the Young Avengers. I hope you survive the experience.
