I didn't really like this as much as I thought I would.
I wanted more of the cool Young Avengers team that I read last year.

Instead, I got some sort of angsty teenage shit with dumbass teenagers.
Yes, I realize how stupid I sound.

Ok. It's not that bad, but damn those kids were mopey.
Each issue featured one (maybe two) of the Young Avengers, and kind of told a bit about them. Not an origin story, so much as a What I'm Doing Now story.
Patriot & Stature were the worst.

I suppose this was done as a way to keep the Young Avengers alive between series. I'm glad for that. This is basically a series of one-shot comics, each focused on one or two of the Young Avengers. To be honest, not much happens. But there wasn't supposed to be a lot happening in any event. This is all about exploring and developing their characters. And it does a fine job of that, for the most part. Patriot's issue was particularly good, surprisingly thoughtful and unwilling to come to a final ...more

This was a miss for me. After enjoying Heinberg's run, this collection of one-shots were disjointed and felt lacking.

Young Avengers Presents just collects six one-shots about the Young Avengers. The stories aren't really connected, though they're all post-Civil War, and they mostly just do a little character development. The art varies a bit, and some of the stories interested me more than others, but it's okay as a bit of filler.

One thing I don't get: why when Billy and Teddy are alone together is Teddy in Hulkling form all the time? Is this some kind of encoded message that they're not having sex, we promise

I think at some point Marvel's most brilliant minds sat down together and thought: hey, we have awesome characters in those new Young Avengers. Why not get to know them a little?

Don’t get me wrong here, superheroes are made to punch things out and look cool doing it. But I don’t care about the fight if I’m not rooting for our hero, and I’m not rooting for our hero if I don’t know him. The original run of Young Avengers gave us great character moments between—and during—the action, and YA Present

I started the Young Avengers when Kid Loki moved from Journey into Mystery to the new Marvel Now series. However, the characters lacked depth...until I went back to the original series from Allan Heinberg.

The Young Avengers came about after the Scarlet Witch "disassembled" the Avengers. These young heroes stepped in to fill the void, and then Civil War happened. Though there are some tie-in issues for the team set during Civil War the team just fades away. This book attempts to give reads a "whe

Hawkeye's story was great, 5 stars. Then come Hukling's and the twins', 4 stars. Vision's was okay, 3 stars. Stature was somewhat bleh, 2.5 and the best thing about Patriot's was Bucky, 2 stars.
Need to read more Civil War, the part concerning the Young Avengers at least. I'll look for it.

The art isn't as good as in the first 2 volumes, but it was ok.

Patriot is my least favorite young avenger, I liked his and Bucky interaction though. Hulkling and the twins are my favorites so I can't be objective about them. Stature and Vision issues were... meh. Hawkeye is amazing.

This is totally filler and I don't care. This is what I've been waiting for from the Young Avengers.

I'm willing to overlook a whole lot of shit if the characters are good. There isn't much shit to overlook in the Young Avengers to begin with - I already liked all of them - but you really get to know the kids in this volume, and that makes all the difference.

CAN WE TALK ABOUT PATRIOT, THOUGH? Capslock because I am seriously considering framing every page of Patriot's story. In a gilt frame. One

Set just after Civil War, the various teams on this set of character-centric issues do a great job showing all the different ways the post-Civil War Marvel universe is affecting the whole crew. Everyone's got shit going on, and while some of it is more intense than others (What does it mean, for Eli, as a black teenager, to call himself Patriot?), they're all good character pieces that take the time to let these kids try and figure stuff out for themselves.

Reading this all out of interesting and it's still good. Even more Young Avengers backstory. I guess one of the differences of this group is that the characters are generally the story, not the super-villain. And generally the characters are worth knowing especially in this one. Pretty much everyone gets to be center stage for just long enough to be interesting. The art is uneven but sometimes it is quite good, and at least when its bad, its not so bad as to make the book unreadable.

Some of the stories collected here were good, while some were weak. Patriot and Hawkeye had interesting interactions with older characters that explored their characters and the legacies they embody. Hulking and the Scarlet Witches' kids had similar stories, but neither saw anything particularly interesting happen. Finally, Vision and Stature's stories were okay but not great. The romance between the two made Vision's story seem a bit odd, as did the fact that Stature played a prominent role in ...more

Each issue focuses on a different Young Avenger, and while the writing is pretty solid, the art is generally not very good. Also, there's quite a bit of post-Civil War talk and lots of references to the state of the current Marvel Universe. And there isn't a real throughline between the six issues, plotwise. But let's go back to the part where the writing is solid! I love the insights we get into each character, many of them struggling with who they are and how they fit into the world. Some must ...more

Very important collection for the Young Avengers. We finally get to see why these kids not only decided to become super heroes but why they chose to take on the legacy of the Avengers.

These six stories are not integral to the continuity of the Young Avengers. This is just a little added extra for fans of the teens.

This volume collects the Young Avengers one-shots, designed as a way of placating fans awaiting the team's next miniseries. We get an all-too brief meeting beween Hulking and Captain Marvel (who was revelaed to be a Skrull anyway), Patriot's talk with Bucky about race and heroism in today's America, Speed and Wiccan barely searching for the Scarlet Witch, Stature dealing with issues of family, Kate's turn at proving worthy of being Hawkeye, and Vision demonstrating his own choices. Nice filler, ...more

Six character-focused issues by six writers, so of course I have six opinions about this book. Mostly they were okay. Some, like Patriot's story, brought up interesting topics but didn't explore them fully. Others were flat-out awesome, like Paul Cornell's story about the Vision. Then there was Kate Bishop earning her name from Ronin (nee Hawkeye), which was quirky and cute and made me love Kate Bishop even more (not like it was hard to do). So, pretty good.
Justin Lee
There were a couple of good stories in this one, but overall it wasn't amazing. I love these characters and this does help you get to know them better. I prefer when they all work together rather than being separate, but nevertheless, it was interesting and I enjoyed reading it. I would suggest this only for people who are true fans of the series- not someone starting out with it.

Probably more like 3.5 stars, really, as this is super awesome for what it is. This is why one-shot stories are so wonderful, and I love these being sort of back-ups for these characters I already adore. Super fun, occasionally sad, and the variety of artists and writers makes it anything but boring on that score. Definitely worth picking up and adding to any YA collection.
