Young Avengers TV SHOW!

DIVERSITY IN BACKGROUND
Marvel already has rich material for a youth-based superhero animated feature. Marvel owns iconic superhero teams such as the Runaways and the Young Avengers. Both teams receive praise for their engaging storylines and depiction of racial and LGBTQA+ representation. YOUNG AVENGERS earned its name by incorporating fresh characters who took inspiration from their superhero icons to become the next generation of heroes, creating now-iconic LGBTQA+ characters like Wiccan and America Chavez.
REACHING ACROSS ALL AGES
In addition to YOUNG AVENGERS, RUNAWAYS contains a refreshing message that oftentimes the older generation is not necessarily the wiser one. After learning their parents comprise a team of supervillains, the Runaways form a team of their own to correct their parents’ corrupt legacy. Furthermore, RUNAWAYS will soon have a live-action series premiering on Hulu. The news of a live-action RUNAWAYS already inspires grand hopes of a diverse line-up. Fans hope for actors who will bring these engaging characters to life and show the potential of youth-based programs.
MORE PEOPLE INVOLVED WITH COMICS
Furthermore, for the younger generations who aren’t quite as acquainted with the DC or Marvel universe, animation provides the perfect venue for new patrons to become familiar with the comics. In addition, it encourages more readership and more regular consumers.
(It would be nice to have this show be streamed on Netflix as they are a big company and have a lot of money to work with. Also, RUNAWAYS already has their show on Hulu, so, why not have YOUNG AVENGERS on Netflix since they have some Marvel TV Shows there as well?)
