An upcoming Disney+ series will reportedly set the stage for the Young Avengers’ introduction into the MCU.

The MCU has only ever had one superhero team, the Avengers, but the Multiverse Saga wants to change that. Phase 4 has already set the stage for the Young Avengers to enter the mix in the not-too-distant future with the introduction of several staple team members.

Among those who have appeared in recent Phase 4 films and Disney+ series have been Kate Bishop, Ms. Marvel, America Chavez, Ironheart, Skaar, Prince T’Challa II, Thu 4‘s Love, Eli Bradley and the Maximoff twins.

But even with the seeds being planted right in front of fans’ eyes, a Young Avengers project continues to be absent from the roster for both Phases 5 and 6, leaving many to question what Marvel Studios really has planned for the team. Well, a new rumor may have just revealed where things are headed.

According to the “reliable sources” of the Marvel Studios Spoilers subreddit Vision Quest The Disney+ series will finally set up the MCU’s Young Avengers.

The Paul Bettany-led WandaVision spin-off is also said to introduce Viv, the daughter of Vision and possibly another member of the Young Avengers team.

Insider Jeff Sneider revealed Vision’s Disney+ series to be in development on the Hot Mic Podcast in late October 2022. He claimed the project will be titled Vision Quest and Marvel Studios planned to open a writer’s room the following week, Deadline added WandaVisionJac Schaeffer will oversee the development.

How the Vision Quest could be crucial to the MCU’s Phase 6

Vision has close ties to the Young Avengers in the comics, having both formed and mentored the team before as a replacement for the disbanded Avengers. The Synthezoid even joined the team as a reborn teenage hero, Vision II, created by merging the original Vision with the data in the Kang Variant Iron Lad’s armor.

This comic story saw a young version of Kang, Nathaniel Richards, time travel into the present day to recruit the help of the Avengers, only to find the team destroyed, and the world in ruins. But going through their records, he found the Vision’s fail-safe plan to create more heroes should the team fall.

This led him to travel even further back and form the Young Avengers – which he joined under the alias Iron Lad. Unfortunately, after being found by Kang, Nathaniel was forced to leave the team for his own timeline, but left his armor behind, allowing Vision’s systems to take over and create Vision II.

Huge amounts of the original Vision Quest the story was already drawn in WandaVision, so perhaps the “mission” referenced in the Disney+ title could be on to assemble the Young Avengers. If this were to adapt some of the comedic elements discussed before, it could even be an important piece of the Phase 6 puzzle.

Perhaps, in the wake of the Avengers’ possible loss in the Kang Dynasty, White Vision will see the original Vision’s failsafe program activate, sending him on a mission to assemble the next generation of MCU heroes. This may even involve him creating his own daughter, Viv, to oversee the team on his behalf.

With Marvel Studios having recently opened up a writer’s room for Vision Quest, a Phase 6 release in 2025 or 2026 is entirely plausible. The team was then able to help the Avengers in Secret Wars before going on to lead their own ensemble film or series in Phase 7 and the MCU’s next saga.

Vision Quest has not yet set a release date.
