One of the more unique teen groups came about in FANTASTIC FOUR #579 when Reed Richards introduced the Future Foundation. The intent of this group was to encourage genius minds to tackle problems in new ways. In addition to some grown-ups, Reed recruited his own kids, Franklin and Valeria, as well as Julie and Alex Power, a quartet of evolved Moloids, a clone of the Wizard, Artie, Leech, and Onome of Wakanda. You can read their incredible flights of science and adventure in the pages of FANTASTIC FOUR.
Most recently, a group of young heroes came together to try and do better than the previous generation. Thus was born a new brand of Champions: Ms. Marvel, Miles Morales, Viv Vision, Amadeus Cho, Sam Alexander AKA Nova, and a time-traveling teen Cyclops. Though the roster expanded over the years, the squad continued their mission to make the world a better place. Unfortunately, some of those efforts have led to the entire OUTLAWED movement right now, but we have faith that the Champions and their fellow young heroes will continue their efforts to effect change!
