Comic Book Resources have exclusively revealed our first look at new Marvel NOW! series, Young Avengers. As well as the cover above, below is an excerpt from an interview with Kieron Gillen, although you can hear more from the writer (including why he chose each of the team members) and artist Jamie McKelvie by clicking on the link below. What do you guys make of this take on the team? Sound off with your thoughts in the usual place!

In this world the Avengers are almost civil servants or firemen or police. They work for the government and they're this enormous organization. But at the core? The real core of the Avengers? It's saving the world, because someone has got to, and that's what "Young Avengers" is about. They're called "Young Avengers" even though they're not Avengers. This is fundamentally about the ideal. It's about being a super hero. It's about saving the world because somebody has got to do it. So instead of picking up continuity and weaving it in. I'm doing weird riffs on it. I'm taking notes from the Avengers mythos and doing them in a completely different way. The first arc is pretty much Loki puts the Avengers together. And of course Loki did inadvertently put the original Avengers together, but why is he actively trying to put this team together? The first arc's major plot is basically a riff on the Ultron story, but it's not about Ultron. It's based around Wiccan and involves magic. It's your basic Hank Pym [frick]s up-style story [Laughs]. That's what Wiccan does and then they deal with it.
