    That was me pulling sh*t out of my a$s, trying to figure her out.
    Pretty sure he is a really big deal to her though. Role model big from that image.

    "Gillen and McKelvie never considered staying on for more than a single season of YA"
    Good. Gillen assumed way too much that everyone would like Loki and would have read his Journey Into Mystery run. I've overall been quite unhappy with this iteration of YA. Really hope Gillen writes something X-men again :-(

    Btw, what happened to Speed?

    I'm happy they're ending this book while they're ahead. It was a cute, interesting story that tried something different and mostly succeeded.

    And I'm happy we got something for JiM. Screw the rest of you, that book ruined me!

    I like that Gillen and McKelvie actually tried to make these kids feel young. Like actual teenagers/young adults. I liked Heinberg's first run, hated Children's Crusade, and while I respect him for making the initial cast, they never actually struck me as teenagers, just characters drawn that way, really. There was never any effort to really tell stories with them that were unique to their age beyond Iron Man and Cap just telling them 'nope you're too young', so I think Gillen and McKelvie did a great job there. Mother might not be the most memorable villain of all time, but the concept worked.

    Young Avengers has been awesome. Unlike most teen books, which tell roughly the same type of stories as their adult counterparts (I'm looking at you Teen Titans), Gillen and McKelvie's run has been all about youth and telling stories specific to its age group. The art has been incredible to read an issue 13 was amazing. I really hope the whole story comes out in one big nice trade paperback so I can read it all the way through.

    It ruined something alright. Your taste in comics.

    Okay sorry just kidding, you left it so open that I couldn't resist.

    MAC was in the Vengeance mini a couple of years back with little background, so while the field is open about her history, I don't think she was created by Wiccan.

    Yea, with this new image revealed, I think its safe to say wherever MAC grew up, she did so spoilers:
    looking up to Wiccan, as her idol/hero
    end of spoilers perhaps inspiring her to "hero".

    ....That's a really great question that hoping might be answered either within the Afterparty Two-parter or (prehaps) the LOKI: AGENT OF ASGARD Ongoing Series....
