Thor adopted a girl at the end of the movie "Thor Love and Thunder" and even the basis of the story The "Falcon and the Winter Soldier" series was also about the new Captain America coaching a teenager named Eli Bradley, and it seems that this process is going to continue next year. Because Captain Marvel wants to work with young Ms. Marvel.
A common fan may think that the writers of the Marvel universe are busy with housework and childcare due to the corona virus epidemic, and the same applies to the stories that They write that it has had an impact, even if they are right. Maybe most of the Marvel writers are now at the age where they have children and now think that the challenges of parenting are more important than fighting villains.
But there is another reason for this and that is this. Many children and teenagers in the world are currently watching the movies of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, and therefore this world should produce movies and series that are appropriate for their age and by creating groups like the young avengers, draw them more and more towards the cinemas.
The Young Avengers, first introduced in 2005 by comic book writer Alan Heinberg and artist Jim Chong, are a group of teenagers and young adults who fight crime, but the second comic series Young Avengers was presented by comic book writer Kieron Gillen and artist Jamie McCloy in 2013, and featured a roster that included Kate Bishop aka the new Hakka, America Chavez aka Miss America, Ellie Bradley aka Patriot, Casey Long or Stacher, Billy Maximoff or Wiccan and Tommy Max Yamov or Spade. But other members of the comic book Avengers who have yet to be introduced in the Marvel Cinematic universe include a young version of Kang the Conqueror, although an older version of him was briefly introduced in Loki, and Billy's latest suitor, the Hulking. The new characters of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, such as Yelena and Ms. Marvel, have not yet joined the Avengers and formed the Young Avengers, but this may happen in the next movies and TV shows of this cinematic universe.
Of course, the age of these heroes Young people are also very different. For example, Yelena and Kate are in their 20s, while Thor's adopted daughter is no more than 10 years old, and the other heroes are in their teens and twenties. Yelanda and Kate will definitely star in their own films soon. However, the founders and heroes of the Avengers group are also present in these films and will be responsible for teaching the younger ones. There is another scenario in which characters like Billy and Tommy are aged through some kind of magic or entering multiple universes. They may simply disappear. The Marvel Cinematic universe included many characters in its scripts and then removed them from this cinematic universe without any fuss. Remember Madame Bey in Age of Ultron? Definitely not? What can you say about Mitchell Yeo's character from "Guardians of the Galaxy"?
He has been gone for a long time. It is true?! Or Aaron Davis from "Spider-Man Homecoming"? Therefore, the Marvel world is used to choosing different characters and then removing them from this cinematic world.
But you don't need to worry. Because at least some of these kids can become Black Widow and Iron Man-level stars. Therefore, this article is dedicated to the heroes of the next generation of the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

While America doesn't have much control over his powers early in the film, the audience is left with the sense that if he can make good use of his powers Use it and you will become a unique superhero.

They live in parallel to unite. But soon he realizes that his efforts are going nowhere and he stops trying. However, this likely won't be the last we see of Billy and Tommy.

In the comics, Kamala is part of a group called the Heroes, not the Avengers. young seekers But the Marvel Cinematic universe is usually known for combining different storylines, so it definitely prefers forming a team as young avengers to several teams so that the audience is not confused. In addition, there is a possibility that from now on Kamala will cooperate with all the superhero teams of the Marvel world and we will see her presence in all the movies and series.
7. Casey Long or Stacher

At the age of 10, Casey tells his father, Scott Long, played by Paul Rudd, that if he's going to become Ant-Man, he needs a partner who likes him. When Scott says he needs an adult partner, Casey tells him she'd love to accompany him on his adventures.

In the comics, Casey is like His father uses pim particles to change his dimensions. Becoming a member of the Young Avengers, she chooses titles such as Stacher and Ant Girl.
It's hard to predict where the story of Thor, played by Chris Hemsworth, and his adopted daughter, played by Hemsworth's real-life daughter, India Rose Hemsworth, will go. Although Thor has many children in the comic books, his character in those books bears no resemblance to his character in "Thor Love and Thunder".

Now that Tony is gone from the Marvel Cinematic Universe, it is not clear who He wants to take on the task of protecting and training Riri. Riri is set to star in the sequel to Black Panther Wakanda Forever before starring in her own Disney Plus TV series, Iron Heart. Maybe he will have a good relationship with an inventor who has a similar character to himself named Shuri played by Leticia Wright in Wakanda. Or maybe team up with Tony's best friend, James Rhodes, who still wears his signature costume and stars in his own series, Armor Wars. Like Kamala, Riri leans more towards heroes than the young avengers of the comics, but as a college kid, she looks a lot like Kate Bishop, Ellie Bradley and other new heroes.
