Young Avengers (v2) #6

"The Toll"

Writers: Kieron Gillen and Kate Brown

Cover artist: Jamie McKelvie

Collected in:
  •  Young Avengers: Alternative Culture (Marvel Comics, Feb 4 2014)
  •  Young Avengers by Kieron Gillen & Jamie McKelvie Omnibus (Marvel Comics, Dec 16 2014)
  •  #6 is available on Comixology and as part of Marvel Unlimited.

Continuity Notes

-        This issue takes place during the three month gap between #5 and #7. It acts as a side story, and does not feature the actual Young Avengers, instead setting up the following arc through its focus characters.

-        Here we are reintroduced to Speed and Prodigy. Speed was last seen in The Children's Crusade, and since then has briefly moved in with the Kaplans (per #1), and taken up a job more suited to his powers. Prodigy was last seen during Avengers Vs. X-Men.

-        Patriot also reappears, although not quite in the way one would expect: more as a mask than anything else. (He is affectionately dubbed the name of 'Patri-Not' in later issues' Tumblr-themed ['YAmblr'] recap pages.)
