I've thought about this for a while, and this new forum seems like the perfect opportunity to try it out.
I've been really impressed by the way Marvel has developed and promoted their recent crop of teenage characters. The writers have created some truly memorable and endearing characters, and to be honest I sometimes find this new guard is in many ways more diverse and dynamic than the old guard. The phenomenal artists that Marvel assigns to these book is also a sign of confidence (unlike at...certain other publishers)
Whether it's the Young Avengers (in all their incarnations), Dennis Hopeless' ongoing Arena/Undercover saga, the young X-Men at the Jean Grey School, the new New Warriors, or the latest legacy characters like Ms Marvel, I thought it would be a neat idea to celebrate this new wave of characters together.
I'm kinda banking on their being a lot of crossover between fans of these different series. I can't be the only one, right?
I also thought we could use a thread to appreciate some of the finished or forgotten teen books, like Avengers Academy, Journey Into Mystery with boy Loki, Spider-Girl and Young Allies (*pours one out for Rikki Barnes*)
