5.0 out of 5 stars Young Loki and his pet Avengers!, 1 Mar. 2014
By 
This review is from: Young Avengers Volume 1: Style > Substance (Marvel Now) (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. She naturally punches Loki through a window and comes looking for Wiccan, who has caused a bit of a problem by using his reality-warping powers to find Hulkling’s dead mother in a parallel universe where she is alive, and brought her to this one. Unfortunately, she turns out to be a [spoiler], and a long complicated, entertaining, and fun story escalates from there.

If you liked Young Loki’s Journey into Mystery series, then this is the book for you; especially as Young Loki is up to all his old tricks, and several new ones. And if you never read it, so what! This really is a superb story, artwork and scripting, and I really cannot do it justice in my review!
