Without question Kieron Gillen is one of the most talented comic book writers of the last decade. His voice is unique and his name stands for innovation and odd storytelling methods. For me personally the outcome was not always to my expectations. His "Journey into Mystery" run was outstanding (one of the best runs on any comic in the last years), his "SWORD" mini pure fun, his run on Thor solid, Uncanny X-Men unexpectedly conventional. So with "Young Avengers" I waited for the trade paperback, this also because the highly acclaimed Allan Heinberg run on this title did relatively little for me.
I am really surprised, and this to my pleasure. "Young Avengers" is "Phonogram" (Gillen's independent critics success) meets "Generation Hope" and it is intelligent storytelling and a lot of fun.
In an interview the author said that together with penciller McKelvie they wanted to tell a super hero story as no one had been told before and they really did it. The panel structure is nothing you have seen before, nevertheless the pages are clear and crisp and you have no problems following the story. The one scene in which one member frees another one by working on the panel frames is a piece of art. Gillen and McKelvie cooperate in a way where you cannot say where writing ends and penciling begins. The art has a silver age feeling in the character presentation and nevertheless is timelessly modern.
The choice of characters is very interesting. Outstanding for me are young Loki (the re-reformed one, worse than the reborn one from Journey into Mystery, but still more tricky and cunning than pure evil) and Miss America, a mysterious young Hispanic woman with little Marvel background until now.

Format: Paperback
The story running through issues #1-5 of the Marvel Now! series of Young Avengers is collected, along with an introductory story from Marvel Now! Point One, as Young Avengers - Volume 1: Style > Substance (Marvel Now) (Young Avengers Graphic Novels). This is an excellent story, which I fond vastly entertaining, but it does feature some of my favourite characters, such as Young Loki and Noh-Varr (“Don’t call me Marvel Boy”). Now, Earth is currently off-limits to all Galactic civilisations, but despite that and being exiled by the Kree and sacked from the Avengers, Noh-Varr’s passion for 1960s pop music has brought him back; and he’s got a new girlfriend – Hawkeye! The female one, as he is careful to point out in his voice-over; he does a lot of voice-over work on his segments of the story. He has also given up wearing shorts, as Kate (the female Hawkeye) observes at one point. However, in exchange, we do get to see him dancing to 1960s pop music in his underwear, shortly before the Skrulls attack him and Kate while they are in his ship in orbit.

Meanwhile, Young Loki is back, despite being dead or something last time I read Mighty Thor, The: Everything Burns. However, you know what Asgardian immortals are like. (However, all I will say on the subject is – watch the milkshakes, and remember the Dog in the Night.) Anyway, Loki finds a new Miss America – she really is a Miss America Chavez - on a parallel world, and tries to hire her to kill Wiccan.

Format: Paperback
You know how certain stories feature kids or teens in them because the storyteller somehow thinks that kids/teens won't identify with the grown-up heroes and need someone relatable? That's generally bogus - nobody wants to be Tom Cruise's whiny kids in War of the Worlds, they want to be Tom Cruise. Nobody wants to be Jar Jar Binks or kid Anakin, they want to be Obi-Wan! Young Avengers somehow subverts that rule by making their teen characters the characters teens - and adults! - would want to be. Part of this success is how well Kieron Gillen's captured what it feels like to be a teenager - turbulent mood swings both up and down, along with the exciting potential of the future, and the screw-it-all attitude that powers you through anything.

The Young Avengers are: Wiccan and his boyfriend Hulkling, Kate Bishop/Hawkeye and her boyfriend Marvel Boy, Kid Loki, and Ms America. Hulkling (and I love the character but what a stupid name!) doesn't have parents and is living with his boyfriend Wiccan and his family who're super-cool with the setup and their kid's sexuality. But he misses his mum, so in an ill-advised scheme, Wiccan conjures up Hulkling's mother from a parallel dimension only for Kid Loki to interfere and the Mother that steps out turns out to be some kind of shape-shifting/Agent Smith-like replicating crazy monster! Young Avengers Assemble!

In a book starring teen heroes, Gillen's choice to make the antagonist an authoritarian figure literally called Mother is pure genius because who do kids rebel against? Their parents! This is my first Young Avengers book so I have no idea how or why Loki is suddenly a 14 year old but he's definitely the best character in the group. Besides his good taste in breakfast food (bacon roll with ketchup - yummers!
