Some of the most frequent questions at conventions around the country involve Marvel's younger heroes. Since their introduction several years ago, fans are eager to see a regular return of the Young Avengers, and want the Runaways to get back to a regular schedule. Though the Runaways will finally see the light of day with Terry Moore and Humberto Ramos this fall, a Secret Invasion tie-in will have to satisfy the "YA" fans.
Secret Invasion: Runaways & Young Avengers will follow the desperate efforts of the teens to fight against the Skrulls. The end of Secret Invasion #2 showed the rookie crew in the middle of New York City right as the Skrull land assault began. Mix this with the fact that the fourth Invasion cover features Nick Fury in the foreground with the team in the background and it's easy to figure some big things are in the works.
Even bigger questions remain - can these teens fight off these powerful aliens? What does Nick Fury want with the team, and does he trust them? What is Hulkling's role in the invasion since he is part-Skrull? Do the Skrulls have a master plan for him? And how will Fury's new Howling Commandos, appearing over in Mighty Avengers, factor into this battle? Fans of these franchises can rest easy as they'll be seeing their favorites in the fight of their lives.
