I didn't enjoy this as much as the first TPB somehow, but it is a lot of fun. I want more of Billy and Teddy, as a couple, at the same time as I want more of the team as a whole. I think I came out of this with half a dozen new ships. These novels make me fannish more than pretty much anything else I read, just as the Marvel movies make me ridiculously excited. I love the female characters, and I want more of them -- heck, I want more of all of it. I'm enjoying the various revelations of how each Young Avenger came to have powers (or not, in Kate's case).

In fact, now I'm envisioning a Young Avengers movie. It'd be too obvious to have Jennifer Lawrence for Kate, right? ( )

While I didn't enjoy this one quite as much as the first, I did find it entertaining. The art continued to be of the same vibrant quality and the story - when I could understand it - was interesting...[It features] a touching coming-out scene as well, which manages to be both heart-warming and hilarious. Great read. [full review on my bloghref>] ( )

I liked this one much better than the first one! Some of it still doesn't make sense, and in the context of a graphic novel it still feels very rushed, but then I think about the fact that people would normally be waiting six months to read this story and the pace is a bit more justifiable. Teddy and Billy are adorable, and everyone's past seems like such a mystery. All the pieces are nice nods to previous Marvel continuity, though (well, one continuity or another), and so I'm enjoying it. Was I the only Scarlet Witch/Wonder Man 'shipper? I sure hope not. I always wanted them to live happily ever after. ( )

The loss of a member, the addition of another, some dark secrets, and would you do what Captain America told you if you had super powers? Not quite what you expect after the first volume. That is both good and bad. It is bad enough dealing with your boyfriend, or your girlfriend, let alone your parents, when you have not 'come out' in either sense of the word. Then you have the Avengers on your tail! Very complicated.
