This review is from: Young Avengers Volume 2: Alternative Cultures (Marvel Now) (Paperback)
The story running through issues #6-10 of the `Marvel Now!' series of Young Avengers is collected as Young Avengers Volume 2: Alternative Cultures (Marvel Now). This is another brilliant instalment of the current series, as we see what Speed (Wiccan's brother) has been up to - working down the hall from Prodigy (former mutant and Young X-Man) - before being kidnapped by former team-mate the Patriot. Prodigy tracks down the Young Avengers (who have been having lots of fun adventures) and they all go dimension-hopping in search of Tommy (Speed). What they find are all sorts of strange things, including Mother's home dimension and Leah, who is not very happy to see Loki, as one might expect. And Hulkling visits his therapist, with whom he drinks milkshakes. (I mentioned the milkshakes in my review of the previous volume, remember?) Deeper plots begin to become visible, as Marvel's most fun Avengers team have more fun (and also serious) adventures, while exploring relationships, 1960s music references and the multiverse. And Young Loki explains to Mother exactly what he is up to.
There is something about this book, and it is not just the fact that is seems to be a continuation of Young Loki's story from Journey into Mystery either; I don't know what, but I hope they keep doing it.
