The Squadron Supreme of America have taken root in the hearts and minds of all, but none more so than a trio of youthful champions who call themselves the Young Squadron!
Kid Spectrum (Sam Alexander), Girl Power (Kamala Khan) and the all-new Falcon (Miles Morales) are here to fight for truth, justice and the American flag...or are they?
Beneath the flashy facade of colorful adventure, something grim is stirring and Deadpool is determined to bring it to light.

    AIPT - David Brooke May 24, 2021

    Heroes Reborn: Young Squadron is a great example of how tie-in books to an event can have fun, inform readers on the larger universe, and tell a smaller story within the boundaries of a specific premise. Zub and Cummings do a great job establishing the voice of each character while supplying plenty of new elements to make this team a proper alternate take. Young Squadron is a great ode to origin stories and the bravery of superheroes with heart. Read Full Review

    Unlike some events Heroes Reborn seems to utilize the tie-ins more for world building rather than storytelling. That being said Young Squadron #1 is a piece of the world you want to see built. Read Full Review

    But Why Tho? - Charles Hartford May 26, 2021

    Taken all together, Heroes Reborn: Young Squadron #1 is a fun, interesting blending of the old and the new. While the book tries to do a bit too much to fully stick the landing, there is nonetheless enjoyment to be found in this title. Read Full Review

    Comics: The Gathering - Charles Martin May 26, 2021

    As characters, these younger, more naive versions of Kamala, Miles, and Sam serve mainly as mirrors that reflect the cheapness and imperfection of the Squadron Supreme's heroic veneer. They do that job well. And their creators invest them with just enough empathy and realism to make the reader care. They may not have the legs to support further "Young Squadron" adventures, but they do a solid job of making this alternate universe feel just as cold and foreboding as it should. Read Full Review
