    One thought on “Avengers: The Children's Crusade”

    1. In a cartoon, when someone rolls a perfectly round snowball downhill, the snowball ends up huge with rocks, trees and skiers all collected within and sticking out at odd angles. This storyline is a lot like a little snowball. What starts as a fairly simple story – two members of the Young Avengers, Wiccan and Speed* believe that they are the sons of the Scarlet Witch and with Magneto’s help hope to find her.This is where you start pulling twigs, rocks, broken limbs and torsos out of the big [...]

    2. Two of the Young Avengers Wiccan and Speed look like twins, have the same name as Wanda Maximoff's children, and have the same powers as the Scarlet Witch and her brother Quicksilver. Wishing to know the truth the Young Avengers set out to find the Scarlet Witch Wanda Maximoff.The Children's Crusade continues the storyline started in Avengers Disassembled and continued in House of M. Wanda's powers got out of control and she altered reality harming millions and depowering the majority of the mut [...]

    3. A little stiff as a storyteller, that Heinberg. He's got that annoying old-school habit of trotting each member of a guest-starring team-up out to get their one line wedged in, then they disappear off stage right again. The guest stars do their cameo, then slink off again to regain their dignity after slumming in a book of lesser wonders.Sad really - I didn't know anything about this mini-series when it first came out, and yet it's filling in a major missing piece of the puzzle of the 21st-centu [...]

    4. Utterly brilliant. A fine example of the best that Marvel has to offer. Instant classic and essential reading for all Marvel fans. This is super-hero comics at the top of the game. Touching and heartbreaking writing. Superb artwork. Every Marvel fan simply must read this book.

    5. I have no idea why I picked this up. I've never read Young Avengers. Most of the characters I don't know at all, and haven't seen in any other titles that I can remember. I wasn't particularly invested in the Scarlet Witch storyline after House of M. And yet here I am, reading it anyway. Surprisingly, it was actually pretty good. I'm sure I would have gotten more out of it, much more, if I'd been invested in the cast of Young Avengers. But I liked what I saw here, and I believed their motivation [...]

    6. I liked this a lot. Even though I had a LITTLE trouble with 16-year-old remakes of the old avengers. What?! I don't like change. I like the Avengers for the ORIGINALS. (I even struggle with remakes of the movies sometimes.ough I'm okay with the new Hulkbut I digress.) So the comic is basically about the Avengers remakes as teens as they find The Scarlet Witch (who is possibly two of the whippersnappers mother.)It's a HUGE comic and sometimes I felt it dragged on and on and on. Gah. The last 3 se [...]

    7. An interesting, moderately important storyline affecting pretty much the entire Marvel Universe, which went oddly unspoken about at the time of its release. This is essentially the followup to the Avengers: Disassembled and House of M storylines from years ago, as well as just generally an important event in the X-Men side of things. Or, it should've been.While the story unfolds in a gradual and ultimately pretty epic style, it never really feels as important as it portends to be. This has the f [...]

    8. Children's Crusade is pretty awesome. It's not exactly a pure Young Avengers comic -- it's definitely a crossover comic -- but it does feature quite a lot of Billy being awesome, supported by the other Young Avengers, and a fair bit of Teddy being awesome. It also features their first (I think) on-page kiss, and is generally more blatant about their relationship than the other comics so far. There's some awesome dialogue, and some lovely funny geeky bits about Billy and Teddy.It also pulls in th [...]

    9. Collects the 9-issue miniseries and accompanying couple of issues, focusing on the Young Avengers and two of their members -- Wiccan and Speed -- who want to confirm if they are really the lost children of the Scarlet Witch and the Vision. But the Scarlet Witch is missing, and given her role in the "No More Mutants" genocide of mutantkind, some of the people also looking for her may have another agenda than a family reunion the Avengers e X-Men Magneto and Doctor Doom. A great, intricate, del [...]

    10. Allen Heinberg and Jim Cheung end their Young Avengers saga by bringing to a full circle their concept of teen heroes inspired by the Avengers legend that began in the aftermath of Brian Bendis' Avengers Disassembled. In this ten-part miniseries, Heinberg seeked to redeem Wanda Maximoff, the reality altering chaos mage Scarlet Witch; whose nervous breakdown precipitated Disassembled. It was an appropriate story to tell and developed organically. After all, two of the Young Avengers, the mage Wic [...]

    11. "The Children's Crusade" is an event book, of sorts, and contrary to a lot of other event books, the story is FUN, flows organically and has true, lasting repercussions on the Marvel Universe - and not a single tie-in issue! Yay! There's some real character growth, a few deaths (of course! - but some unexpected ones) and, by the end of the book, a new status quo - at least, for the Young Avengers team.I am under the impression that this mini-series was not given the exposure it so rightly deserv [...]

    12. I love the characters Allan Heinberg created for The Young Avengers, and the way their personalities have come together over the years since the characters were first introduced. Even the most infuriating member of the team, Patriot, still interests me, and of course I think the Wiccan-Hulking duo is a much-needed fairly visible pairing for gay teens (they're committed to each other, they're not ashamed to show their love for each other, and they're not promiscuous. They're also not stereotypes) [...]

    13. there's are essays to be written on this comic (The Young Avengers as fan, wish-fulfillment heroes; Crossovers as super-hero/super-villain slash-fiction; Patriot's portrayal as indicative of fandom's inability to embrace african-american heroes) but I'm too bored to write them.

    14. Read in issues. Okay, that ending was approximately an order of magnitude suckier than the rest of the series. Maybe multiple orders of magnitude.

    15. Oh, no. Oh no, oh no, oh no. Y'know I really like Young Avengers. Who doesn't, right? But I mean I really like Young Avengers. It's one of the best little inventions to come out of "modern" Marvel age that kicked off with Avengers Disassembled; an almost tongue-in-cheek satire of The Avengers and its constant overuse of tropes and contrivance, but delivered in a package that heavily emphasizes genuine, heartfelt teenage relationships. The first two arcs of Young Avengers were basically parodies [...]

    16. I used to be really into Marvel comics for years, but then I got bored with them and gave them up pretty much cold turkey. And then I watched three Marvel movies in a row last weekend, and I thought to myself, "you know, these movies were all pretty good, maybe I should read some more comics again and see if I can get back into this stuff, except this time I am going to buy more things for my Kindle and fewer physical books, because they are a pain in the ass to move." And this is the collection [...]

    17. One of the worst type of story arcs in comics is one created primarily to "undo" the work of other writers, and that's exactly what this is: a long-winded, poorly-scripted attempt to fix all the damage to the Marvel Universe that had previously been the responsibility of the Scarlet Witch. As the story progresses, the plot becomes over-clogged with characters, and they keep throwing *more* characters in, until by the end, when everyone's fighting for no reason, it stops making sense altogether. [...]

    18. I just love these stubborn & mostly clueless teenagers so much. generally, I don't care about the X-Men that much (I will admit that this is mostly because I know very little about them), so this series was a little harder for me to get through. in other young avengers volumes, I found the avengers the level of annoying I was supposed to feel at them for standing in the way of the teenagers, but in this one, I was kind of over the adults not using their words & making situations worse. I [...]

    19. This is really a two-star collection of comics, but I gave it an extra star because of the gay teen relationship between Wiccan (Billy) and Hulkling (Teddy) more or less at center stage.Although I don't read much contemporary costumed heroes comics -- I get bored with the endless retcon reinvention and the constant deaths and rebirths -- I was seeing so much Billy/Teddy slash shipping yaoi (or whatever the term is) online that I had to check out the source and witness the relationship that the g [...]

    20. Ok, so if I didn’t need to read another book to win a free book in my library’s summer reading program, I probably would not have picked this up. But…I did.This was kind of a hodge podge, a who’s who in the Marvel world. It had a kind of old school feel with every hero and villain announcing their name within their first dialogue bubble. Things were resolved without anything actually happening and the good guy who became a bad guy is not actually the bud guy but an innocent victim being [...]

    21. I LOVE EVERYTHING, OKAY?Billy is my favourite. I don't care, I love them all, really, I do, but Billy is my favourite. He's a huge, adorable geek thing that needs so many hugs. The whole scene at the beginning that set everything off with Billy's magic doing its thing because he feared for Teddy's life? Ugh, god, so many feels. And that was the opening pages. Teddy is such an over-protective badass that's a super softy and does everything for Billy, and, and. I love him, okay? He reminds of Stev [...]

    22. As much as I've enjoyed Brian Bendis's run on Avengers, what he did to the Scarlet Witch in Avengers Disassembled was a crime. Not that I've ever been a big Scarlet Witch fan, but having her powers change from "jinxing" to "Beyonder-style reality altering" with no explanation, then having her pull a Dark Phoenix with no slow character arc leading up to it, came across as nothing but a cheap stunt for shock value.Children's Crusade goes a long way to correcting that, much the same way that Green [...]

    23. Though Siege was sold as the finale of the multi-year epic Marvel story started with Avengers Disassembled, this book serves as a fitting post-script to the whole thing, finally diving more into what drove Scarlet Witch to her actions that day. The book also reintroduces her back into the Marvel Universe, in a way that feels perfectly appropriate given her actions and how various characters feel about her. Like every big Marvel epic lately, The Children's Crusade features both big deaths (at lea [...]

    24. I really enjoyed Young Avengers Style > Substance and kind of wish that this book was more about the Young Avengers than it was. The Young Avengers drive the story as Wiccan and Speed search for the Scarlet Witch, but along the way the X-Men and the Avengers get involved and everything gets, well, complicated. That being said, it's quite an enjoyable ride, lots of plot twists and nicely paced, with decent character development as well. The artwork is top notch. I think one of the reasons that [...]

    25. I thoroughly enjoyed the resolution between Wiccan and Wanda (finally we get a solid answer on his heritage!) and of course loved the dynamic between Teddy and Billy. The two are probably some of my favorite comic characters, and the reason I snapped up all of the YA material I could find. However, I'm forced to give the collection 3-stars because of the inclusion of the YA one-shot, which I can't rate on it's own and which makes little sense following the end of the event--the attitudes of the [...]

    26. Yeah Loving the Billy/Teddy thing. AwNow that that's out of the way, really the thing that comes to mind time and again while reading anything with the YA: It's kind of sad that these teenagers are so often the voice of reason. All the older superheroes have been in the superheroing business for so long and have gotten caught up in the politics of "good guys/bad guys" and "so-and-so did a bad thing, we've gotta get revenge!" that no one over the age of 22 seems to see things objectively anymore. [...]

    27. Cheung's art is gorgeous for the most part, but this collection is mired in the most ponderous parts of Avengers/Marvel Universe continuity - House of M, Civil War, Avengers Dissembled - whatever. Yawn. In a way it is trying to wrap up and plug the consequences of those "events" - and that is its biggest problem. It is a whole lot that might be best told in one issue, and misses its opportunity to develop the Young Avengers characters into the cool and interesting ones that they currently hint a [...]

    28. It felt like everything had been leading to this moment FINALLY. The issues after the first 12 issues were so weak but this made me sooooo emotional. (view spoiler)[I'm really upset about Cassie, she just got reunited with her father and then THAT HAPPENED :(((( I can't say I didn't see the whole Iron Lad thing coming. And I guess this finally answers the question why Cassie, Vision and Eli aren't in Kieron Gillen's run of the Young Avengers. (hide spoiler)]Great getting to know more about Wanda [...]
