While heroes like Captain America are already retired, the rest of the first Avengers occupation is considered to hang the superhero costumes on the nail. So it will be time for new superheroes in Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU), even better if the audience can produce a relationship between them and the old guard. A possibility that is just about through series Wiehawkeye and Falcon and The Winter Soldier is to introduce the Young Avengers into the MCU.
Who are the Young Avengers?
Their first joint mission in the comics completed the Young Avengers 2005, at a time when the original Avengers were dissolved. Led by Nathaniel Richards stumbles part of the young heroes about a backup program of Visions artificial intelligence. Although Captain America and Iron are anything but enthusiastic about it, this version of Vision decides to shape a new Avengers team from the heroes and gives them costumes and equipment.

Captain America and Iron Man manage to dissolve this first version of the Young Avengers, but the young heroes can not be deterred. A little later, they start the second incarnation of the team with new members: Scott Lang’s daughter Cassie undkate Bishop, which becomes the leader of the Young Avengers.
Attentive comicsers can read it on the name: Almost all members of the Young Avengers are younger versions of well-known superheroes. And most of them have already appeared in the MCU. Kate Bishop occurs, for example, in the footsteps of Hawkeye, Wallas sons Wiccan and Speed take over the roles of Scarlet Witch and Quicksilver, Patriot is a young Captain America and Cassie Lang has the abilities of Ant-Man.
So far, Hulkling and Marvel-Boy, which are also regularly part of the team, has not appeared in the MCU. Similar WieCaptain Marvel also has Marvel-Boy his super capabilities of the Kree , so could have an appearance in the coming movie The Marvels. Hultklings of custom skills are also related to the Kree and the Skrulls.
The Young Avengers in the MCU
Marvel and Disney have some possibilities for the first appearance of the Young Avengers in the MCU. The team has some big MCU: the next adventure of Ant-Man and Wasp could introduce a new superhero into the MCU. Source: Marvel events participated, among others at Secret Invasion. In the comic event in which the Skrulls prepare an invasion of the earth, the Young Avengers are the only team that is at the time of attack in New York and can defend the city.
Since Captain Marvel is known, that this crash in the MCU have a very different background history than in the comics and therefore is still unclear what it’s going to be in the Disney + Series Secret Invasion. However, there are certainly some possibilities to make at least parts of the Young Avengers emerge. Since Nick Fury will play a role in the series, Disney could take a first step towards Young Avengers.
Until the Young Avengers have their first cinema insert, but certainly some time passes. On the one hand, because not all the potential members are yet established. At the latest, if next year Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania and The Marvels have started, most of the Young Avengers may arrived in the MCU. And it really should be that Kang The Conqueror will become the next big rogue in the MCU, the young superheroes even had a direct reference point to the villain.
Nathaniel Richards and Kang The Conqueror
And in the form of Iron Lad Nathaniel Richards. This gives rise to the young version of Kang The Conqueror in the course of the Young Avengers Comics, who has fled to the past to escape their fate. His Nanotech suit was given to him of his older himself and at least at the beginning of the Young Avengers does Nathaniel do everything in his power, not to become like Kang The Conqueror. However, he finally changed the pages and so there are several versions of Nathaniel Richards, who support Kang in his machinations or try to master the world.

Of course, this conflict would have a lot of potential in the MCU, especially because there have been some rogues, which are changed to the side of the good, but still no hero, which became permanently to the villain.
But even without Nathaniel and Kang, the superhero group would have a lot of potential to lure new and younger spectators into the MCU. And a diverse audience, because in the comics from Wiccan Billy Kaplan and Hulkling Teddy Altman is a loving couple. Who knows, maybe it’s the Young Avengers who call the legendary words Avengers, Assemble at the next Crossover movie.
