Seems like Marvel wanted to make a new team of Avengers to relate more to today's youth (in hopes of selling more comics maybe?) so they made young clones of the existing Avengers, gave them similar suits, and called them Young Avengers. So I guess now instead of everyone assembling in The Mansion, everyone assembles in Iron Lad's basement while his mom goes out to buy some milk.
Iron Lad (Really? Iron Lad? Couldn't they give him a less generic name like or Armored Avenger or Red Armadillo of Death?) stands about 6 1/4 inches tall. Tall kid! His armor must be more flexible than Iron Man's because it is form-fitting. Even his metal mask is shaped to the contours of his face. Overall, Iron Lad's armor has the same color scheme as Iron Man's, mostly red with yellow and silver. The armor...[See More]
When are kids going to learn that messing around with gamma radiation is NOT a smart thing to do! If you DON'T want to be horribly disfigured then listen to your parents and DON'T go near the barrels of glowing slime! Dancing around a leaky particle accelerator is also not smart! Getting hit with plutonium isn't smart either! Of course, you might get lucky and turn green and hulk out like...the Hulk...I think there is a nuclear fission plant down a few miles that way! Hurry before that annoying neighbor kid gets there first!
Hulkling stands in at 7 inches of bulging green muscle. Mercifully, he has the intelligence and visual mercy to wear a nice black/grey suit instead of threadbare short-pants like another green hulk of larger, more brutish proportions. Our not-so-little hulkling...[See More]
Hmmm...he dresses like the U.S. flag and carries a shield...who ever could this young Avenger be emulating? Who could possibly be this Avenger's hero and idol? The Hulk!? Wasp!? Superman of course! Ooops, wrong universe.
Young Patriot rises up like the star-spangled banner at a full 6.2 inches tall. Y'know, for heroes who are supposed to be kids, these guys are as tall, and even taller than their full-grown counterparts. Looks like someone's been eating their Wheaties. This is another very neat figure. Almost the entire paintjob is flawless, even the two little white stars on him are nicely painted. The problem is the little gold buttons on his jacket, some of the paint is off-center, but aside from that, everything looks good. The boots, gloves, and torso all have a soft matte finish....[See More]
Our Asguardian stands heroically, with satchel and stick in hand, at 6 inches tall. Even though these Young Avengers are as tall, and sometimes even taller, than the much older heroes, these kids somehow manage to still look like kids! The leaner muscle, lithe frames, and well-sculpted faces come together well and get the job done right, but let's get back to the stick. It's more of a staff, but is it a magic staff? Does it shoot freaky energy blasts? Wizards like to use staves to channel the Forces of Nature to do their bidding, so is this kid a wizard? Unless he can swing throw it like a lance or swing it like a hammer, he'd better know how to eat fire and spit lightning because no formidable enemy is going to be kept at bay by a stick! He also has a finely-crafted, silver-accented,...[See More]
