Vision, using the Young Avengers program, made to find his and Scarlet Witch's children's reincarnations, formed a team consisting of Eli Bradley, Billy Kaplan, and Teddy Altman. They took every mission available, such as rescuing people during a fire. After their first mission was recounted in the Daily Bugle nicknamed Lieutenant America, Teen-Hulk, and Thor Jr.. Captain America and Iron Man also investigated.
Cassie Lang was interested in following her father's legacy, and her powers accidentally triggered during an argument with the others. Kate Bishop accompanied the heroes after helping them fight off kidnappers at her sister's wedding.
Captain America was impressed with their effort, but said that without parental permission he and Iron Man could not train them. Their equipment was also confiscated.
Kate was able to locate a new base and provided new costumes and equipment.
The Young Avengers had to decide how much to tell their parents after the members decided to continue acting publicly. None of their parents found out.
Cassie Lang had a troubled home life. Teddy Altman abused his shapeshifting powers to hang out with a more popular kid. He realized that he had gone too far when his "friend" tried to force him to steal artifacts from the destroyed Avengers Mansion. Billy Kaplan had a problem with being accepted. He met the Scarlet Witch, who explained that being different was not bad. Because Kate Bishop was assaulted in a park, she began combat training.
Kl'rt the Super-Skrull tried to take Teddy to Tarnax IV, the Skrull homeworld. Kl'rt revealed that Mrs. Altman was not Teddy's mother and killed her. In the aftermath, Kl'rt kidnapped Teddy. The Vision offered to locate more "Young Avengers" using program. The Young Avengers broke Thomas Shepherd out of a superhuman prison and recruited him. Tommy could move at and accelerate matter, destabilizing it enough to cause an explosion. The Super-Skrull told Teddy of his true origin as the son of the Kree hero Captain Marvel and the Skrull princess Anelle. He claimed that Tommy and Billy were lost twin sons of the Scarlet Witch and Vision. Billy believed him, but Tommy did not. Kree and Skrull combat forces arrived and fought each other and the Young Avengers until Teddy, realizing his importance to both sides, called for a ceasefire. The Avengers intervened and a Kree warrior fired at Captain America. Patriot intervened and was gravely wounded. Hulkling and Kl'rt ended the fighting by secretly shapeshifting into each others' forms. Captain America and Kl'rt, disguised as Hulkling, brokered a shared custody between the races.
Kate received Hawkeye's Bow and quiver from Captain America, and she took the mantle of Hawkeye". Tommy arrived in costume and calling himself Speed. The team was then officially approved by Captain America.

- No special notes.
- The first Young Avengers powers, costumes and codenames were inspired by classic Avengers members:
- Patriot is the grandson of the original Captain America, and bares a resemblance to the classic Captain America, Bucky and Luke Cage.
- Hulkling is the son of Captain Marvel, a Kree, and the Skrull princess Anelle. He bares a resemblance to the green and muscular Hulk, but lacks his "anger issues".
- Wiccan is patterned after both Thor and The Scarlet Witch.
- Stature is the daughter of Ant-Man, wears his old costume, and has his powers. Her powers are also similar to those of Hank Pym and Wasp.
- Hawkeye is based on a combination of original Hawkeye and Mockingbird and uses weapons similar on Hawkeye's Bow, Mockingbird's Battle Staves and Swordman's Sword. Her ability to learn quickly and master weapons has been compared to the villain Taskmaster.
- Juvenile delinquent Speed is based on the reformed super villain Quicksilver.
