So I embarked on a recent quest to go through the proper reading order of the Young Avengers, in preparation for reading the recent (and now-complete) Marvel Now
reboot relaunch of the series.
Unlike a lot of characters in the Marvel Universe, the Young Avengers only came into being about 9 years ago, so it’s actually possible to follow them through in a mostly-completionist fashion – and totally worth it!
BEFORE YOU START
It’s worth getting hold of two trade paperbacks: Avengers Disassembled, and House of M. (they’re easy to get hold of because they were major releases – my local library has them both) While not being comprehensive introductions to some of the baggage that our sweeties will have to deal with, they cover the most important parts and will answer a lot of questions that might come to mind while reading Young Avengers. If you make it to The Children’s Crusade, you’ll thank me for this. Also, getting caught up on some of the backstory surrounding Quicksilver and the Scarlet Witch will be fun preparation for this year’s upcoming Avengers movie: Age of Ultron, which introduces both characters to the Marvel universe.
