Young Avengers is an American comic book series written by Allan Heinberg and published by Marvel Comics. It follows a group of young superhero, each of whom patterns himself or herself after a member of the long-established Marvel superhero team the Avengers.
The series won the 2006 GLAAD Media Award for Outstanding Comic Book and the 2006 Harvey Award for Best New Series.
Marvel's 1940s forerunner, Timely Comics, had an unrelated character, Young Avenger, who debuted in USA Comics #1 (Aug. 1941).
Young Avengers follows the events of the "Avengers Disassembled" storyline. The four founding members of the team were gathered together as a result of the Vision's plan for the reformation of the Avengers in the event the team disbanded. In the series, newspapers refer to the young heroes as "super-powered fanboy" and label them the "Young Avengers," a name the team members initially disliked but which stuck nonetheless.
