On writing the all-new series, Anthony Oliveira says, “I have been reading Young Avengers since the very first week it came out! I remember in those early days thinking it was impossible that what seemed to be happening with Wiccan and Hulkling was actually happening – Queer people like us just weren’t shown in comics or on TV. I’ve been hooked ever since, and continuing the story of these characters I once looked up to is a dream come true.” He continues, “This story is full of deep cuts, weird continuity connections, and insider beats, and the pleasure of Marvel Unlimited is that great, glorious archive of back issues is all just a click away.”
“Events transpire! Protagonists and antagonists clash! Scenes follow, one after another, though not always in order! And we will learn what power cannot do, and what forgiveness can. People are certainly very excited for the Young Avengers to be back, and absolutely no one more than me! But the years since have changed them, I think. These characters have been off on their own adventures for a while, and I wanted to really get to know them again. So for each of the characters we got, I tried to think really hard about the story each of them needs right now, and did my best to give it to them. If you don’t know these heroes this is a great chance to befriend them; if you do, I think it will feel like catching up with an old best friend.”
And artist Jethro Morales said, “The fans can expect a lot of heartfelt moments with tons of action and fun in every panel and page throughout this arc. And as one of the artists, I gave it all to the best of my abilities to convey visually all the emotions and excitement masterfully written by Anthony that I hope the fans would appreciate.”
