Civil War Young Avengers and Runaways No.1 September 2006

After discovering they were the children of a group of super-villains known as the Pride. Nico Minoru and her friends stole weapons and resources from the criminals before running away from home and eventually defeating their parents. Together, the teenage Runaways now hope to atone for their parents’ crimes by taking on the new threats trying to fill the Pride’s void.

United by the Avengers Failsafe Program, a protocol designed to assemble the next wave of Earth’s Mightiest Heroes, the Young Avengers have faced their fair share of devastating opponents. None, however, as potentially dangerous as the Superhuman Registration Act.

After Stamford, Connecticut is destroyed during a televised fight between the New Warriors and a group of dangerous villains, public sentiment turns against super heroes. Advocates call for reform, and a Superhuman Registration Act is passed which will require all those possessing paranormal abilities to register with he government, divulge their true identities to the authorities and submit to training and sanctioning in the manner of federal agents. Anyone with super-powers who refuses to register is now a criminal.

Some heroes, such as Iron Man, sees this as a natural evolution of the role of superhumans in society and a reasonable request. Others view the Act as an assault on their civil liberties. After being called upon to hunt down heroes in defiance of the Registration Act, Captain America goes underground and begins to form a resistance movement. The Young Avengers are quickly recruited by Cap and his allies.

In California, the Runaways maintain a stance of studied indifference…
