Now before I go into detail about all of this, let me just set the record straight: THIS IS ALL MY IDEA; MARVEL (For all that I know) IS NOT PLANNING AN AVENGERS ACADEMY MOVIE. Now let's talk Avengers Academy. As you may know, Marvel has movies planned out all throughout 2028. That should cover all of phase 4. But after phase 4, what happens next? My idea is to start something new, either during phase 4 or after it. This idea is simple: Avengers Academy. How would they pull it off? They should do exactly what they did with the Avengers. Have solo movies build up to it. The other thing is, Marvel is NO LONGER DOING ORIGIN STORIES, so all the upcoming superheroes have powers, and they have already have had some experience; this would help fill in the fact that it hasn't just been the Avengers and Spider-man and Daredevil. But the Avengers Academy line up shouldn't just include Avengers Academy students, it should also include...
The Young Avengers (with some Next Avengers)
The Young Avengers are a respectable group of kid superheroes that have faced many evil-doers and have earned their stripes. The Next Avengers was a movie based on the kids of the original Avengers. They were the ones who took down Ultron. The line up would also include some Young Avengers and Next Avengers members. Note: not all characters will be in the first phase/movie. But the first line of movies would include:
In the comics, Reptil was the leader of Avengers Academy. It makes sense he would get a movie first. In this movie, Reptil is being chased by the villain, Egghead, who wants his stone that allows him to shape shift into dinosaurs.
S.H.I.E.L.D. comes in to help, with heroes Hawkeye II and Finesse. And at the end, he would be confronted by Norman Osborn, and then at the mid-credit scene, he would be rescued and brought to Avengers Academy. He would turn from his wisecracking, fun self to a more broken, optimistic Reptil from all of Norman Osborn's torture. But he would still be the heart of the team and Avengers Academy would quote-on-quote "heal" him.
In the MCU, this version of Patriot will be different. He will be a mix of the Patriot you know from Young Avengers (Eli Bradley), and also a mix with James Rogers from Next Avengers: Heroes of Tomorrow. Obviously, James/Eli will not be the son of Captain America (well, maybe he could be) but he could have some kind of tie in with Captain America. He would start out with the shield that Patriot (Young Avengers), but then he would be upgraded to the shield that James (Next Avengers) uses. And the villain? i think it should be Madame Hydra.
At the end an Avenger would recruit him to Avengers Academy.
3. Iron Lad
The next kid-hero on our list in none other than Iron Lad. He would start out with a Mk 1. version of his suit. He would eventually be upgraded to a newer, sleeker design (like the one you see above). He would be caught up in the rise of A.I.M. (because, you know, A.I.M. isn't dead) and his worthy opponent: M.O.D.O.K. (below)
In the end, when he's in need of shelter, he is recruited to, of course, Avengers Academy.
Any Avengers team needs an Asgardian. That's why Torunn would make a great addition to the team. But first, she needs a movie. Since Thor doesn't have children, Torunn should be an Asgardian orphan who obtained her sword through a contest and she has Thor-like powers. Her villain she should face off against Ex Nihilo or Thane (below).
I know, Ex Nihilo is a a hero, but at first he was a villain. Maybe after the events after the Torunn solo movie, he becomes an Avenger! At the end of the movie she comes to Earth, seeking shelter and she is recruited to, of course, Avengers Academy.
Hulkling would be another Kree, but this time he is a superhero. He is a shape shifting Kree and usually turns into a Hulk-like creature.
He is the son of the original Captain Marvel, and his actions in the cosmos get him tangled with.....
I know, not a lot of people know who Apox is, but this is a great opportunity to bring in these unpopular heroes and villains! In the end of the movie, Hulkling comes to Earth and joins... of course... Avengers Academy. Another possibility would be Norman Osborn confronts him and starts to experiment on him.
6. Spider-man: Miles Morales (or Ultimate Spider-man)
Miles Morales has grown into one of the most popular Spider-man that isn't Peter Parker. He starts being Spider-Man at around 12 years old, and his movie would show how society seems to hate him. He struggles with trying to fit into the world as a Spider-man. His villain he would take on would be The Chameleon.
In the end, he is also approached by Norman Osborn, and then there goes the torturing. And then at the end, like all the other movies, where will Miles be brought to after being rescued? Avengers Academy.
What about Finesse and Hawkeye II?
With this setup, Finesse and Hawkeye II would appear in the Reptil movie. They could have two solo movies, or what I would like is a team up movie. If this would happen, I think it would have to do with Hawkeye II and Finesse infiltrating H.A.M.M.E.R. to get some information for S.H.I.E.L.D. That is how they earn their spot on Avengers Academy. Finesse could also have a backstory with Norman Osborn, because her power is she is able to imitate what she sees, so Norman experimented on her. Finesse and Hawkeye II would be the first students enrolled in Avengers Academy.
Why does Norman Osborn keep torturing everyone??
In the comics, everyone from Avengers Academy (the originals) were tortured by Norman Osborn because he experiments on their powers. Eventually the kids are rescued and brought to Avengers Academy.
The Big Finale: Avengers Academy
The Avengers Academy movie would have the Avengers Academy students start out as just the kids who train together. They are not ready to be the "Avengers of Tomorrow." But after helping (but also breaking some rules) out with an attack at HQ, Speedball and Tigra (the teachers at Avengers Academy) decide maybe its time for them to live up to the name "The Avengers of Tomorrow." But things get personal when the villain they face comes. And that villain is none other than
Kang the Conqueror
As the students of Avengers Academy try to fight off Kang, they fail. They then realize a devastating truth; Kang is the future self of Iron Lad! The Avengers Academy band together and are able to stop Kang, defeating him and securing Iron Lads future as a hero.
What About all the other Avengers Academy/Young Avengers member?
While some of the Young Avengers and Avengers Academy members (Wiccan, Speed, X-23, Veil, Hazmat, Mettle, Striker, White Tiger, Stature, you get the idea) would fail to see the first Avengers Academy outing, it doesn't mean they are not going to show up. They would be in the sequel (if it would do good enough) and some of them may even get their own solo films. So don't fret. They would come.
