So DC seems to be moving forward with a live-action Teen Titans TV series which will focus on a group of young heroes led by Dick Grayson, aka Nightwing. And that is in addition to the live-action Static Shock TV series that DC is also producing for online distribution. This—along with binge-watching both Ultimate Spider-Man: Web Warriors and the first season of Young Justice in the last couple weeks—all got me thinking: should Marvel jump on the young hero bandwagon by introducing a team of young superheroes into the MCU through either a TV series or a movie?
Unfortunately, Marvel doesn’t have too many options as far as popular young superheroes—mostly because they have never fully embraced the young sidekick idea. In fact, the only easily-recognizable young sidekick from Marvel Comics (for me, anyways) is Bucky, who is a teenager in the original comics. However, that’s not to say that Marvel does not have any teenaged superheroes or teams of teenagers.
