[[caption-width-right:350:Tommy's first costume]]

--> ''"I don't have feelings. And I don't hold hands."''

-> Tommy was born and raised in New Jersey. As a result of his parents' divorce and his growing powers, he found himself in and out of juvie. When the team uses the Avengers Fail-Safe Program to recruit other superpowered teens who could help them rescue Teddy, they break Tommy out of a high-security facility (where he was being experimented on), after which he joins the Young Avengers. His strong resemblance to Billy is instantly noted, and they are theorized to be the long-lost twins of the Scarlet Witch. Tommy and Billy search for her but are unsuccessful. They are later confirmed to be her sons in ''The Children's Crusade.'' Sometime after that and Volume 2, Tommy got fed up with the team and left. He started working for David's company, assembling machines, but is kidnapped by Fake Patriot for much of the volume.

-> Like Billy has the Scarlet Witch's powers, Speed has the power set of her brother Quicksilver -- SuperSpeed and its RequiredSecondaryPowers, high stamina and SuperReflexes. He can also produce hyperkinetic vibrations that can cause explosions and adjust his density so he can shift through solid objects.



* AffirmativeActionLegacy: In a way, to her father, who shared her powers.
* ActionGirl: To be specific, she herself is the one who choose to become superheroine.
* ArtisticAge: She was 14 years old when she first joined the team, but was often drawn as much older looking.
* BackFromTheDead: [[spoiler: She's killed in ''Children's Crusade'' but is eventually brought back to life by Doom in ''Comicbook/{{AXIS}}''.]]
* BerserkButton: Attacking her father, as Doom finds out (see below).
%%TheChick
* ComicBookTime: She was apparently aged up several years in the brief period between Creator/GeoffJohns' ''Avengers'' run and the debut of ''Young Avengers''.
* DaddysGirl: She adores her father and wants to follow his footstep.
* DidYouJustPunchOutCthulhu?: After she thinks he killed her father, she grows to the size of God Mode Doom, and knocks him over.
** BrokeYourArmPunchingOutCthulhu: [[spoiler: Doom promptly responds by killing her.]]
* DisappearedDad: Her father, Scott Lang. [[spoiler:As of ''Children's Crusade'', [[BackFromTheDead not so disappeared]].]]
* DominoMask: She wore one -- see image.
* FakeDefector: She pretends to work for the Power Broker in order to trick him into giving her superpowers. [[spoiler: She agrees to do one legitimate job for him though after she learns that the target is Darren Cross.]]
%%HairOfGoldHeartOfGold
* HeroicBSOD: She has one in ''Young Avengers Presents'' when she accidentally indirectly injures her stepfather. She shrinks herself to microscopic size and ''keeps shrinking the more she talks''. Eli snaps her out of it.
* IJustWantToBeSpecial: After her resurrection, she becomes increasingly bitter and resentful over no longer having powers. [[spoiler: She ends up forming an alliance with the Power Broker in exchange for a new costume and Pym Particles.]]
* InSeriesNickname: Cassie is short for Cassandra.
* InterspeciesRomance: With Jonas, a synthezoid.
* JumpedAtTheCall: Was originally planning to join the Runaways but forced her way into the Young Avengers after she found out about them.
** GotTheCallOnSpeedDial: After being killed, when she was resurrected she found that she'd lost her powers. When the Power Broker launched Hench X (in ComicBook/AstonishingAntman), which offered the chance to get superpowers to use against the heroes, Cassie applied, intending to get her powers back and then bring the organisation down. She is given Pym Particles, a new uniform, a new codename: [[ComicBook/MarvelComics2 Stinger]].
* JuniorCounterpart: She has the powers of her father, Scott Lang.
* PsychoactivePowers: She grows when she gets angry and shrinks when she feels guilty.
* SacrificialLion: [[spoiler: Killed near the end to hammer in that ''Children's Crusade'' is a tragedy.]]
* {{Sizeshifter}}: Her power is to make herself grow or shrink at will.
* StuffedInTheFridge: [[spoiler: Her death at the hands of Dr. Doom is what fuels Iron Lad's StartOfDarkness, putting him on the path to becoming Kang.]]
* YoungerThanSheLooks: She's the youngest of the team but it's hard to tell.

--> ''"...I come from a dimension where there is transcendental peace and universal enlightenment. But there are no close harmony girl groups. How could anyone leave a world that makes things as wonderful as this?"''

-> '''Debut comic''': ''Marvel Boy v2 #1''

->Ex-Avenger, ex-Dark Avenger, ex-teenage rebel. Noh-Varr is a Kree from another dimension who, after getting lost in the multiverse in a mission of peace, crashed on Earth-Earth. The crash killed his parents and his girlfriend and got him captured by Doctor Midas. He escaped and swore revenge against the human race, starting by burning [[spoiler: [[PrecisionFStrike FUCK YOU]] ]] into the streets of Manhattan. Later he confronted Midas with the help of the MadScientistsBeautifulDaughter Oubliette. Noh-Varr developed a crush on her but soon both were captured by S.H.I.E.L.D. and sent to different prisons. He was sent to the Cube where he was experimented on by the Cube's Warden. Soon he found himself brainwashed by Warden but was freed by the Young Avengers and the Runaways in ''Civil War''. Later he had a complete change of heart and decided to become a superhero after a Skrull impersonating Captain Marvel left him in charge of the protection of Earth. He was deceived by Norman Osborn and joined his Dark Avengers only to leave shortly after and join the real Avengers. He was kicked out of the team after some bad decisions and joined the Young Avengers after a fateful encounter with Kate. Obsessed with music (especially Phil Spector girl groups and briefly, Gram Parsons) and Earth girls. Currently banished from Earth, he still hangs out with the Young Avengers. He's single.

->Part-Kree, part-cockroach, he has all the powers that the Kree possess including super strength, durability, and speed. He also hasa seemingly unlimited supply of weapons and his own spaceship, the ''Kirby''. All of them are advanced Kree technology, however he mostly just uses a pair of handguns.

->Jonas possesses many abilities

* DependingOnTheWriter: The writers couldn't seem to decide whether Jonas was [[TheNthDoctor the original Vision in a new, younger body]], or an entirely new character. Creator/EdBrubaker and Creator/BrianBendis wrote him as the former, while Heinberg wrote him as the latter. Since the return of the original Vision, it's been definitively stated that Jonas was an entirely different character.
* DroppedABridgeOnHim: [[spoiler: He was rather abruptly killed off once Marvel decided to bring back the original Vision.]]
* IdentityImpersonator: Kate has him impersonate her on a mission so she can fool Executioner into thinking he hadn't figured out her secret identity (and thus, couldn't use it to blackmail her).

* RidiculouslyHumanRobot: Justified as his body is from the far future where this trope would be more plausible.
* RobotMe: His brain patterns were based on Iron Lad's.

* TangledFamilyTree: He could be seen as either brother or ''father'' of Billy and Tommy, depending if you see him and previous Vision and same person or some sort of robotic father and son.

-->''"The Laws of Physics can kiss my ass."''

-> '''Debut comic''': ''Vengeance #1''

->Ex co-leader of the new Teen Brigade and co-protagonist of the mini-series ''Vengeance''. America was a princess who lived in a utopia full of women. When her [[HasTwoMommies mothers]] sacrificed themselves to stop the hole in America's dimension, saving her and everybody in the process, she decided to leave to honor her dimension's creator and her mothers' ideals by becoming a hero. Ten years later she joined a new Teen Brigade that operated in the shadows but soon the team disbanded and she found herself traveling dimensions until Loki recruited her (sort of) to the Young Avengers. Currently she is part of a scientific exploration team known as the Ultimates that deal with cosmic and other incredibly powerful threats. She's a lesbian (but briefly experimented with heterosexuality) and is currently dating a normal girl named Lisa.

->She's a FlyingBrick powerful enough that even Loki's afraid of getting hit by her. However her most valuable power probably is her ability to travel through dimensions. She can create portals to other dimensions with her star shaped tattoos. No one knows how she got these powers, especially when the inhabitants of her original dimension were so afraid of interacting with the rest of the multiverse.

* BlessedWithSuck: His power allows him to know everything other mutants know, including very awkward stuff.
%%* BrainySpecs[=/=]CoolShades: He wears them, allowing him to look even ''smarter.''
* BroughtDownToNormal: He lost his power in the M day.
%%BrutalHonesty
* DarkSecret: Prodigy gained one in Original Sins. [[spoiler:He is in possession of Terabytes of information regarding the Watcher's secrets, information that everyone believe, was lost.]]
* DeadpanSnarker: The way he copes with his soul-sucking job.
* FallenOnHardTimesJob: He's introduced doing tech support for superheroes, which is portrayed as incredibly frustrating. He also describes the workload as "enough for five" yet the supervisor still says that he's under call quota. However, he can't quit because his history with the separatist X-Men group bars him from better jobs and he doesn't want to be involved with the X-Men anymore.
* ForcefulKiss: Gives one to Teddy. One could think that after two instances of drama involving him and this trope in ''New X-Men'' he would know better.
* GondorCallsForAid: The above mentioned plan involves calling few friends for help. And by friends we mean a huge army of teenage superheroes.
* GreenEyedMonster: He falls for Teddy and tries to make him break up with Billy out of jealousy.
* KansasCityShuffle: In Original Sins, he played one of this with the Hood. The Young Avengers were helping Hood to retrieve the Watcher's many hidden secrets, however they also were planning to kick his ass once all the information were safely stored. Hood knew this and devised a plan to ensure his safety. If anything were to happen to him before he got the information, the key that decipher the information would have been transferred to computers all around the world. However, Prodigy [[spoiler:altered the information while building the machine and generated a key just for himself,]] leaving the Hood with nothing even after he escaped.
* KnightInSourArmor: His previous experience with the X-Men leaves him rather jaded, and he isn't pleased that Tommy drags him into investigating the supposed thief at their workplace. He doesn't exactly fight it however.
* NotSoDifferent: Next to Loki he's the smartest member of the team, which may actually explain their initial dislike for each other. [[spoiler: He proves he can be just as much manipulative and selfish when he tries to break Billy and Teddy's relationship, and just as deceitful when he tricks his friends into thinking he got rid of the Watcher's secrets when in reality he kept them for his personal use (mainly to use them for the good of others but still).]]
* OutsideContextProblem: WordOfGod states he's one for Loki, as his plans didn't took into account somebody like him joining the team. This is also the reason he won't make "meet the team" blogposts for David, like did for other characters - he enjoys the fact people don't know what to expect from this guy, thanks to his status as this.
* PowerPerversionPotential: Thanks to his powers, he can know anything about anyone...including how certain superheroes like to make out on beaches.
* TheRival: [[spoiler: He was one to Wiccan for Hulkling affections for a time but Hulkling chose Billy in the end and he got over it.]] He was also one to Loki in trying to outsmart each other.
* ScarilyCompetentTracker: With the help of mathematics, he manages to narrow down the gang's favorite haunt and even nails down their favorite order.
* ScaryShinyGlasses: His orange shades can have this effect, notably in the scene where they investigate [[spoiler: Tommy's disappearance]].
* SuddenlySexuality: There is no indication that David was bisexual until Vil. 2 #9, and in his previous appearances in Comicbook/NewXMenAcademyX, he was paired with Surge and had no romantic interactions with other guys.
Justified as his body is from he says he realized it after getting new powers - which happened right before New X-Men tied into a crossover event, after which it was cancelled and David faded into the far future where background of the X-Books.
* TeenGenius: He was intelligent before, but amplified when he gained the power to absorb knowledge.
* WhatTheHellHero: In ''Comicbook/NewXMenAcademyX'' he had a history of doing
this trope would be more plausible.
* RobotMe: His brain patterns were based on Iron Lad's.
* SacrificialLion:
when some of his friends acted out of the line (for example, [[spoiler: Josh having an affair with a teacher, Noriko trying to BreakHisHeartToSaveHim]]). In ''Children's Crusade.'']]
* {{Shapeshifting}}: He can also shapeshift.
* TheSmartGuy: He's essentially a walking supercomputer, so

!The Young Masters

[[folder: The Young Masters]]

The Young Masters are a group of teenagers first formed by artist Lisa Molinari better know by her codename Coat of Arms. She created the team as an art project to see how alike good and evil really are. The first iteration of the team was lead by Chris Colchiss aka The Melter. He wanted their team to be part of the Young Avengers and do super hero work. However, those plans fell apart and he ended up teaming up with Iron Patriot and his Dark Avengers. After their defeat, the team stayed together for a while until many members left to pursue other projects. Executioner took the leadership of the team and recruited new team members to pursue and agenda of villain extermination, he was defeated by the new Teen Brigade. The third iteration of the team currently operates in Bagalia and is commanded by Constrictor, instead of being a separate entity, they now do jobs for the Masters of Evil themselves.

* AlliterativeName: Christopher Colchiss.
* BadPowersBadPeople: His powers are melting things, including living beings. Not much good you can do with that. This trope was actually invoked in universe when Coat of Arms told him that she always expected him to become a villain because of his powers but wished he wouldn't.
* BadPowersGoodPeople: Coat of Arms theorizes that this is what drived his desire to be a hero.

* FallenHero: He was the only one of the team who really wanted to become a Young Avenger for the right reasons, but after being rejected by Patriot, he decided to quit trying to be a hero and turned into a villain, and after that he kept falling more and more.

* VainSorceress: This is one of the most important part of her character.

Horrified by his future self, he used the Skrulls, Billy met suit to send himself back in time and warn the Avengers. Upon arrival to the past he realized the Avengers had already disbanded, so he used the Avengers Fail-Safe Program to create his twin brother, own team with the speedster Tommy. It didn't take long before he theorized about purpose of defeating his future self.

to:

-> see * AesopAmnesia: He left the ComicBook/{{Wiccan}} pageYoung Avengers because his presence alone was starting to damage the timestream. However in Children's Crusade, he returns and allows Cassie to alter the timestream and bring her dead father back, something that led to [[spoiler:her death at the hands of Doom]]. After that he willingly forgets that lesson out of a desire to [[spoiler:revive Cassie]] by altering the timestream. Even worse, he comes back to help Doom, [[spoiler:the man who killed Cassie]].
* TheCavalry: Iron Lad's return in Children's Crusade to prevent Wolverine from killing Wanda.
* ClothesMakeTheSuperman: He has no powers aside from the futuristic suit his future self gifted to him.
* EvilCostumeSwitch: After the events of The Children's Crusade, Nate reappears in full Kang costume to help Doctor Doom stopping the FF.
* FallenHero: He went from Iron Lad to Kid Immortus after [[spoiler:Cassie's death]].
* ForegoneConclusion: Nate is a young Immortus (Kang the Conqueror), hence his turn to evil is pretty much a given.
* FirstEpisodeSpoiler: The fact he is Kang the Conqueror is revealed in the first issue of Young Avengers.
* FusionDance: He wanted to do this with Doom and Annihilator to create "Doom the annihilating conqueror" and then get rid of the FF and the Fantastic Four.
* FutureMeScaresMe: The only reason he created the Young Avengers was because he needed support when he had to confront his future self. He kept training non-stop with the team because of this reason too.
* InSeriesNickname: Nate is short for Nathaniel.
* IgnoredEnamoredUnderling: He becomes this in FF vol. 2. He is already with Ravona Renslayer but she already hates him (from a betrayal way into the future) and plans to punish him eternally in different times.
* JuniorCounterpart: He patterns himself after Iron Man.
* LoveMakesYouEvil: His love for Cassie is what made him [[spoiler:kill the Vision]] and then go back to the timestream and start changing events in hopes of [[spoiler:reviving her]].
* LoveTriangle: In a weird variation of this. He gets into a triangle without even knowing it. He and Cassie liked each other but after Nate left, the new Vision (created from his old Kang armor and with his brain patterns) started falling in love with Cassie too. She wanted to be with Nate again (knowing he would never come back again) but also considered the new Vision's feelings. All three finally meet again in Children's Crusade and...let's just say it doesn't end well for any of them.
* MakeWrongWhatOnceWentRight: Nate accidentally did this after he received information from his older self about his team dying in a war with the Avengers if he didn't go to save them. It is later implied by an old Billy that no one would have died if Nate hadn't go back in time.
* NiceJobBreakingItHero: Pretty much all he tried to do so far.
* OnlySaneMan: He was this in the initial Young Avengers team. Eli was too stubborn for his own good and Billy and Teddy were just fanboys.
* ScrewDestiny: Nathaniel founded the Young Avengers to avoid his destiny of becoming a supervillain. [[YouCantFightFate Didn't work]].
* StartOfDarkness: The end of Children's Crusade. In FF vol. 2 he is already in full Kang costume and helping Dr. Doom.
* TimeyWimeyBall: He is young Kang, of course Time travel is involved.
* TragicHero: Kang is no hero but all of Nate's plans while with the Young Avengers failed because he never learned that time travel was not his to manipulate at all.
* YouCantFightFate: He tried hard to stop himself from becoming Kang, only to succumb to his fate without even realizing it.

* AlienArtsAreAppreciated: Kieron Gillen describes him as an "alien hipster". His initial rejection of human culture when he first appeared has turned into a fascination not unlike certain modern Westerners becoming fascinated by African cultures.
* AndIMustScream: How he says his time captured by the Cube Warden felt like to him.
* ArrowCatch: Once, he caught an arrow thrown by Kate in mid air while running to attack her.
* ATragedyOfImpulsiveness: Noh-Varr breaking up with Kate. If he would have controlled his desire of getting his old life back for a few more minutes, he would still have Kate.

* ChickMagnet: He was dating a Kree woman, Meree, just before he crashed to Earth, had a brief romance with Exterminatrix, a short-lived romance with Moonstone and a longer relationship with Annie, before getting together with Kate. Lampshaded by Spider-Woman, as she got annoyed that an alien man with no social skills was getting more dates than she was.

* DynamicEntry: In issue four of Vol. 2, where he busts through the window of a diner. He even describes it as this trope.
* ExperimentedInCollege: Or more specifically while serving on an "exploratory ship", a term which has more than one meaning to his people. As his subsequent romantic interests have all been female it can be assumed that the result of this "exploration" was the determination that he is predominantly heterosexual.
* FirstGirlWins: So far, Noh-Varr can't find a person who matches the feelings he had when he was with Oubliette. This is most likely the reason why he broke up with Annie and the real reason why he broke up with Kate.
* FlatEarthAtheist: Noh-Varr blatantly admits to not believing in higher powers when conversing with Fantomex, turns out Kree offspring are tutored in a [[ColdEquation binary code]] which disproves the existence of transcendent beings. Hence his immunity to the Weapon XVI contaminant.

They are still friends but no word on the benefits part.
* HeartbreakAndIceCream: Despite remaining friends with Kate, Noh-Varr took his break up with her pretty badly -- never coming out of his floating space station, drowning in break up songs and junk food and rejecting any kind of contact with other living beings.
* HeelFaceTurn:
** Was one of the main antagonists in the The Runaways/Young Avengers crossover mini series and briefly ran with ComicBook/NormanOsborn's Dark Avengers.
** He also betrayed Comicbook/TheAvengers to the Kree during ''ComicBook/AvengersVsXMen'', which resulted in him being stripped of his role as the Protector. Later, he switch sides again and tries to amend his mistake by helping the Avengers, however this time, they don't accept him back and banished him from earth.

By ''Young Avengers'' Vol 2 he's dropped the codenames entirely.

* MessOfWoe: After breaking up with [[spoiler:Kate]], his room on his space station turns into this.
* MinorFlawMajorBreakup: The only reason Noh-Varr broke up with Kate was because he couldn't get to feel like before with her. She was perfect for him otherwise.

* TheOneThatGotAway: He thought Oubliette was this, which was why he broke up with Annie and Kate. After breaking up with the latter he begins to think she was this too.
* RedemptionFailure: After he left Osborn's Dark Avengers, he became one of the good Avengers.

* WalkingShirtlessScene: His casual outfit in the After Party.
* WallCrawl: Thanks to his DNA, he can run and stick to most surfaces without too much concern.
* WellIntentionedExtremist: Was introduced as this. His ship got shot down by a mad scientist and, being the only survivor, was captured and tortured before he could escape. So he had very good reason to view Earth [[CrapsackWorld as a pretty terrible place]], and while his methods were violent, he genuinely believed it would be in the interests of everyone if Earth were terraformed into being more like his home planet.
* WalkingArmory: Has access to a wide variety of advanced Kree weaponry.
* WhiteHairBlackHeart: Not quite "black heart", but he was kind of a jerkass at the beginning, and ''especially'' when brainwashed by the Cube Warden. Definitely subverted nowadays.
* YoungConqueror: After he was released from his brainwashing, the ''Runaways'' crossover ended with him declaring his former prison the capital of the new Kree Empire. He's mellowed a lot by Volume 2, but the team's journey through the multiverse features several Earths where he made good on the threat.

-->''"Putting the Avengers together. It's Loki's greatest hit."''

'''Careful''', ''unmarked spoilers for the whole series follow. Read at your own peril.''

The god of lies himself. Or at least, the current version of him. Loki got very interested in Billy and how powerful he was. Having learned that his powers were becoming a little erratic due to his kid body being unable to withstand them, he planned to take Billy's powers by manipulating a lot of people in order to unleash a parasite into the world who would consume Billy, but not before Loki would get all of his power. However, he backed off at the last second and actually ended up helping Billy and the rest of the Young Avengers to escape the parasite. Since then, his objective was to manipulate Billy into altering reality and giving him all the power to control it as well. He got a victory by actually convincing Billy into giving him a new, more powerful body of a teenager. However he ultimately failed in his purpose of getting the ultimate power over reality when his guilty conscience forced him to confess all his deeds. This, along with Billy having realized that he was still too naive to mess with reality, was Loki's downfall and he eventually decided that it was best for the Young Avengers to continue without him as he was afraid of influencing them in the wrong way or betraying them again.

After leaving the team, he decided to start atoning for the mistakes of his older self and became the All-Mothers' secret agent. If you want to know how his story continues, [[Comicbook/LokiAgentOfAsgard go here]].

He escaped and swore revenge against the human race, starting by burning [[spoiler: [[PrecisionFStrike FUCK YOU]] ]] into the streets of Manhattan. Later he confronted Midas with the help of the MadScientistsBeautifulDaughter Oubliette. Noh-Varr developed a crush on her but soon both were captured by S.H.I.E.L.D. and sent to different prisons. He was sent to the Cube where he was experimented on by the Cube's Warden. Soon he found himself brainwashed by Warden but was freed by the Young Avengers and the Runaways in ''Civil War''. Later he had a complete change of heart and decided to become a superhero after a Skrull impersonating Captain Marvel left him in charge of the protection of Earth. He was deceived by Norman Osborn and joined his Dark Avengers only to leave shortly after and join the real Avengers.

* SuperhumanTransfusion: The source ComboPlatterPowers: Aside from some of the tropes below, he also has:
** SuperReflexes: From his Kree nature.
** SuperSpeed: Enhanced, to the point where he can enter the "White Run", cutting out all outside influences and move/fight at maximum efficiency.
** SuperStrength: Also a byproduct
of his Kree nature.
** SuperToughness: He's triple jointed, from being mixed with the DNA of a cockroach.
* CurbStompBattle: Because of his background, he's a very formidable opponent.
** Issue four of Vol. 2 during a BigDamnHeroes moment.
** [[ComicBook/CivilWar When]] he met the original team, he wiped the floor with them and the Comicbook/{{Runaways}} (minus Speed and Molly) at the same time. And considering [[BrainwashedAndCrazy his state of mind]] he probably wasn't at his best.
* DarkAndTroubledPast: Vol. 2 treats his past exploits as this.
* DynamicEntry: In issue four of Vol. 2, where he busts through the window of a diner. He even describes it as this trope.
* ExperimentedInCollege: Or more specifically while serving on an "exploratory ship", a term which has more than one meaning to his people. As his subsequent romantic interests have all been female it can be assumed that the result of this "exploration" was the determination that he is predominantly heterosexual.
* FirstGirlWins: So far, Noh-Varr can't find a person who matches the feelings he had when he was with Oubliette. This is most likely the reason why he broke up with Annie and the real reason why he broke up with Kate.
* FlatEarthAtheist: Noh-Varr blatantly admits to not believing in higher
powers when conversing with Fantomex, turns out Kree offspring are tutored in a [[ColdEquation binary code]] which disproves the existence of transcendent beings. Hence his immunity to the Weapon XVI contaminant.
* FriendsWithBenefits: Kate's relationship with Noh-Varr seemed to be this and it is implied that a RelationshipUpgrade happened at some point. However, he confessed to Kate in the middle of battle that he still has some feelings for Exterminatrix. She's not happy with this and ultimately broke up with him. They are still friends but no word on the benefits part.
* HeartbreakAndIceCream: Despite remaining friends with Kate, Noh-Varr took his break up with her pretty badly -- never coming out of his floating space station, drowning in break up songs and junk food and rejecting any kind of contact with other living beings.
* HeelFaceTurn:
** Was one of the main antagonists in the The Runaways/Young Avengers crossover mini series and briefly ran with ComicBook/NormanOsborn's Dark Avengers.
** He also betrayed Comicbook/TheAvengers to the Kree during ''ComicBook/AvengersVsXMen'', which resulted in him being stripped of his role as the Protector. Later, he switch sides again and tries to amend his mistake by helping the Avengers, however this time, they don't accept him back and banished him from earth.
* HeinzHybrid: Part Kree, part cockroach.
* HumanAliens: He has the exact anatomy of a male human, but
is a blood transfusion pink Kree.
* IHaveManyNames: Marvel Boy, Captain Marvel and Protector. He rejects them all nowadays.
* ItsNotYouItsMe: What he said to break up with Annie and Kate.
* KlingonsLoveShakespeare: Noh-Varr really loves Earth pop, especially Phil Spector singles. He has a vinyl collection and can spend hours talking about music if no one stops him.
* LegacyCharacter: To the earlier Marvel Boys originally (though he personally had never met [[Comicbook/{{Quasar}} either]] [[Comicbook/AgentsOfAtlas one]].), as well as briefly taking the Captain Marvel title in the ComicBook/DarkAvengers. By ''Young Avengers'' Vol 2 he's dropped the codenames entirely.
* MasterOfYourDomain: He has a technique for rerouting pain signals to his auditory cortex i.e. turning pain into music. There is also the White Run technique (see Super Speed above) that he used to defeat both the Young Avengers and the Runaways during Civil War.
* MessOfWoe: After breaking up with [[spoiler:Kate]], his room on his space station turns into this.
* MinorFlawMajorBreakup: The only reason Noh-Varr broke up with Kate was because he couldn't get to feel like before with her. She was perfect for him otherwise.
* MorphWeapon: Marvel Boy sports; among hosts of equipment, a pair of bracelets [[GenerationXerox strangely reminiscent]] of the Kree Nega-Bands, they have the ability change into weapons like a plasma blaster and razor blade which doubles both as shield and sword.
* MrFanservice: See the first scene of Young Avengers vol. 2 #1, where he's dancing shirtless.
* ObfuscatingStupidity: His stilted pattern of speech, strange word choice ("Park of Central"), and lack of knowledge about Earth custom is at least partly a fake. Lampshaded by himself.
-->'''Noh-Varr''': My faking it is total.
* OffScreenBreakup: With Annie whom he was dating before leaving earth in the ''ComicBook/AvengersVsXMen'' event. Later it's revealed that Noh-Varr is the one who broke up with her claiming he was the problem and left. The little glowing piece that Noh-Varr left her before leaving was never mentioned again.
* TheOneThatGotAway: He thought Oubliette was this, which was why he broke up with Annie and Kate. After breaking up with the latter he begins to think she was this too.
* RedemptionFailure: After he left Osborn's Dark Avengers, he became one of the good Avengers. Later, in ''ComicBook/AvengersVsXMen'' the Supreme Intelligence of the Kree told him to get a sample of the Phoenix Force and steal it from the Avengers if necessary. He did that but then regretted it and betrayed the Kree. Everyone hates him now.
* ThreatBackfire: He threatens to leave Prodigy alone in space in his space station, if he didn't come with him and Hulkling to help him find the Exterminatrix. Prodigy, who is very impressed with the idea of living in space, agrees to stay. Noh takes him back anyways.
* WalkingShirtlessScene: His casual outfit in the After Party.
* WallCrawl: Thanks to his DNA, he can run and stick to most surfaces without too much concern.
* WellIntentionedExtremist: Was introduced as this. His ship got shot down by a mad scientist and, being the only survivor, was captured and tortured before he could escape. So he had very good reason to view Earth [[CrapsackWorld as a pretty terrible place]], and while his methods were violent, he genuinely believed it would be in the interests of everyone if Earth were terraformed into being more like his home planet.
* WalkingArmory: Has access to a wide variety of advanced Kree weaponry.
* WhiteHairBlackHeart: Not quite "black heart", but he was kind of a jerkass at the beginning, and ''especially'' when brainwashed by the Cube Warden. Definitely subverted nowadays.
* YoungConqueror: After he was released
from his grandfather, who'd been injected brainwashing, the ''Runaways'' crossover ended with SuperSerum.
* UnwittingInstigatorOfDoom: [[spoiler: His interference caused
him declaring his former prison the Scarlet Witch to lose her magic and Doctor Doom to gain god-like power.]]capital of the new Kree Empire. He's mellowed a lot by Volume 2, but the team's journey through the multiverse features several Earths where he made good on the threat.

* LoveMakesYouEvil: His love for Cassie is what made him [[spoiler:kill the Vision]] and then go back to the timestream and start changing events in hopes of [[spoiler:reviving her]].
* LoveTriangle: In a weird variation of this. He gets into a triangle without even knowing it. He and Cassie liked each other but after Nate left, the new Vision (created from his old Kang armor and with his brain patterns) started falling in love with Cassie too. She wanted to be with Nate again (knowing he would never come back again) but also considered the new Vision's feelings. All three finally meet again in Children's Crusade and...let's just say it doesn't end well for any of them.
* MakeWrongWhatOnceWentRight: Nate accidentally did this after he received information from his older self about his team dying in a war with the Avengers if he didn't go to save them. It is later implied by an old Billy that no one would have died if Nate hadn't go back in time.

-->''"Putting the Avengers together. It's Loki's greatest hit."''

'''Careful''', ''unmarked spoilers for the whole series follow. Read at your own peril.''

The god of lies himself. Or at least, the current version of him. Loki got very interested in Billy and how powerful he was. Having learned that his powers were becoming a little erratic due to his kid body being unable to withstand them, he planned to take Billy's powers by manipulating a lot of people in order to unleash a parasite into the world who would consume Billy, but not before Loki would get all of his power. However, he backed off at the last second and actually ended up helping Billy and the rest of the Young Avengers to escape the parasite. Since then, his objective was to manipulate Billy into altering reality and giving him all the power to control it as well. He got a victory by actually convincing Billy into giving him a new, more powerful body of a teenager. However he ultimately failed in his purpose of getting the ultimate power over reality when his guilty conscience forced him to confess all his deeds. This, along with Billy having realized that he was still too naive to mess with reality, was Loki's downfall and he eventually decided that it was best for the Young Avengers to continue without him as he was afraid of influencing them in the wrong way or betraying them again.

After leaving the team, he decided to start atoning for the mistakes of his older self and became the All-Mothers' secret agent. If you want to know how his story continues, [[Comicbook/LokiAgentOfAsgard go here]].

* DistressedDude: He has been whisked away or locked up quite a few time. Doesn't help that he's helpless when his magic goes haywire for one reason or another.
* DrivenToSuicide: In volume 2, his unresolved guilt and self-esteem issues escalate into this. Being told his death would undo the disaster he unintentionally caused doesn't help. Thankfully, he gets talked out of it.
* EmoTeen: Invoked in his introduction in the recap page of vol.2 ("Angsty chaos magic user"). Averted in the story as he has reasons to despair.
* FatalFlaw: His tendency to act without thinking, which can be disastrous when coupled with his powers.
* FutureBadass: While already plenty badass by himself, we're shown three universes [[note]] the BadFuture Iron Lad chances upon in the ''Children's Crusade'', the future shown in ''ComicBook/BattleOfTheAtom'', and Strange's supposed future from ''Doctor Strange and the Sorcerers Supreme''[[/note]] in which he becomes the next [[ComicBook/DoctorStrange Sorcerer Supreme]]. And then there's the Demiurge, a reality warper so powerful he'll be able to create entire universes, and rewrite the laws of reality so comprehensively even ''Doctor Doom'' can't find a way around them.
* AGodAmI: He is called a "demiurge" (a creative/destructive force) in vol. 2. [[spoiler: The After Party reveals that he is the one who creates America's homeworld and thus is considered a god there.]]
* GlassCannon: Has devastating power, but is just as vulnerable to physical and psychic attacks as any normal guy.
* HappilyAdopted: Sort of. [[spoiler: Technically his "adopted" parents are his biological parents. However, he is the reincarnation of one of the Scarlet Witch's twin sons, and she also takes some maternal interest in him]].
* InSeriesNickname: Billy is short for William.
* InterspeciesRomance: [[spoiler:With Hulkling, who's revealed to be half-Kree half-Skrull.]]
* InnocentlyInsensitive: So wrapped up in his own angst that he forgets that Teddy had to watch the only mother he had ever known be incinerated right in front of him. When Teddy finally cracks and lambasts Billy for his ongoing ItsAllAboutMe behavior, during which Teddy had been completely supportive, Billy is so shocked and ashamed that he goes and does something really stupid...
* ItsAllMyFault: He blames himself for kickstarting the whole ''Children's Crusade'' disaster. And again for inviting a interdimensional parasite into his world.
* TheKnightsWhoSaySquee: Billy makes no secret that he really looks up to the Avengers, the first time he meets most of them. He's one of the few people aware of Jessica Jones' former identity of Knightress, and freaked out quite a bit the first time he met Scarlet Witch (before he knew she was his mom-sorta, and before his powers even manifested).
* JewishAndNerdy: Billy's family are Reform Jews per WordOfGod. He's ''very'' geeky and often quotes pop culture. For example, he refers to fighting Laufey as looking more fun in ''Literature/TheLordOfTheRings.''
* JuniorCounterpart: Patterns himself after Thor at first, but later embraces being the JuniorCounterpart to his sort-of mom, the Scarlet Witch. Given his rapidly burgeoning power, some stories have him in line for the Sorcerer Supreme mantle as well.
* LinearWarriorsQuadraticWizards: He's the magic user of the team and his power keeps getting stronger to the point it makes the adults nervous. [[ShockAndAwe Lightning]] to [[FunctionalMagic magic]] to potentially world ending [[RealityWarper reality warping]].
* MommasBoy:
** He's pretty attached to his (technically biological, functionally adoptive) family, at least, as seen when Steve Rogers announces he is one of the heroes necessary to maintain the safety of the world at the start of ''Heroic Age''. His response:
--->'''Billy''': Uh... I might have to ask my mom.
** Towards Scarlet Witch as well, as demonstrated by all he goes through in ''Children's Crusade''.
* NiceJewishBoy: Billy is mostly very caring and considerate.
* NiceJobBreakingItHero: You would think that after all that had happened with Iron Lad[=/=]Kang, Billy would know better than to try to go and change history, even with the best of intentions. Instead he attempts to [[spoiler:[[BackFromTheDead bring back Teddy's mother]] and ends up summoning an EldritchAbomination instead]], although it's suggested Loki put the idea into his head.
* NotSoDifferent: He can be just as willful and rebellious as Tommy and to an extent Pietro. As Pietro puts it:
-->'''Quicksilver''': I thought I'd have more in common with your brother, the speedster, but here you are, disobeying my father the moment he turns his back. I'm impressed.
* OpenmindedParent: The Kaplans are ''extremely'' understanding and openminded. When Billy attempts to come out as a superhero, they misinterpret and affirm their support of his homosexuality, and they take it pretty well when Captain America informs them anyway. They even let Teddy and Tommy move in when they show troubled home lives. They're so understanding that apparently Tommy got fed up with them and left.
* PersonOfMassDestruction: Because of his powers. The Avengers are now understandably wary of the idea that he could take out an entire team of bad guys in an instant ''without even meaning to.''
* PopCulturedBadass: Gains points for referencing ''Series/ProjectRunway'', loses them for ''Theatre/TheSoundOfMusic''.
* RedIsHeroic: A red cape features predominantly in both his costumes, and he's an idealistic good guy.
* RefusalOfTheCall: After the end of ''Children's Crusade'', he gives up being a superhero. [[UnwittingInstigatorOfDoom His mistake]] at the beginning of the 2013 run forces him to [[HesBack don the costume once again]].
* SecretLegacy: The long-lost son of Scarlet Witch.
* TheSmartGuy: How straight he plays this Trope depends on the people/team he's in/around. He's not actually intellectually smart or tech savvy, but usually comes off as the more level-headed and person with the most common-sense, one's again, subject to who he's with. That is, when he isn't busy being stubborn or self indulgent with his worries and problems.
* SorryImGay: His response to Enchantress coming on to him in Dark Reign.
-->'''Billy''':"Very, ''very'' gay!"
* StarSpangledSpandex: Present in his third costume, where his arms and the sides of his legs and torso are covered in realistic stars. He starts wearing it around the time he ''really'' unlocks his RealityWarper powers.
* StraightGay: He was at first, but he was revealed to have a few more feminine interests than originally let on.
* StrongAsTheyNeedToBe: When Billy manages to temporarily access his Demiurge potential, he becomes capable of BreakingTheFourthWall and actually stepping out onto the pages of the comic to change[=/=]rearrange panels (i.e. reality), effectively making himself almost as [[TheOmnipotent all-powerful]] as the artists, writers and editors.
* SquishyWizard: The most powerful guy on the team -- provided he can get out the words for his spells. Just saying the spells won't work, either -- he has to ''hear'' himself say it; hence his power is practically useless if he's rendered effectively deaf.
* SuperpowerLottery: Definite winner. He has an impressive powerset, which borderlines StoryBreakerPower.
** HealingHands: He can use his magic to heal people, as seen when he heals Teddy after the Super-Skrull attack, though it can be rather erratic. It also tends to depend on whether or not he ''actually'' wants the person to heal, as seen when trying to heal the Super Skrull at Teddy's request after Kl'rt murdered Teddy's mother. When Teddy notes that it isn't working, Billy says flatly, "Probably because I ''don't'' want him to heal."
** {{Invisibility}}: He can also use his magic for this.
** MassTeleportation: His powers can teleport the entire team places.
** RealityWarper: At his most dangerous. Loki even heavily implies to Hulkling [[spoiler: that their meeting and relationship is a product of a subconscious use of his powers to give him his "dashing prince"]]. On the other hand, this is ''[[ManipulativeBastard Loki]]'' suggesting this, [[spoiler:and he later admitted to manipulating everyone,]] so take it with a grain of salt.
** ShockAndAwe: His powers first manifested as blue lightning (that almost killed a bully) and initially the only power he's willing to admit to the Avengers, because it would remind them of Thor.
* TangledFamilyTree: He's one of the sons of Scarlet Witch, reborn into a new biological family. This means he can count Tommy, aka 'Speed' as his twin brother, and Magneto and Quicksilver as his grandfather and uncle, respectively. And don't start on all the people he could conceivably call 'father'...
* TooPowerfulToLive: Wolverine's opinion of him in ''The Children's Crusade'', to the point that Wolverine actually ''tries'' to murder Billy in front of the ComicBook/YoungAvengers, ComicBook/TheAvengers, [[TooDumbToLive and]] ComicBook/{{Magneto}}. While Wolverine's main focus in that arc is killing ComicBook/ScarletWitch, he flat-out says that if the Avengers were smart, they'd get rid of Wiccan, too. The Avengers don't do much to protest this opinion.
* TranquilFury: When he gets angry or upset enough to blow things up, he's quiet and cold.
* UhOhEyes: His eyes glow blue when he does big spells.
* UnskilledButStrong: He has immense power, but to quote Loki, he needs more finesse.
* UnwittingInstigatorOfDoom: His well meaning but ill thought out bit of magic at the beginning of the 2013 run.

to:

\n* AscendedFanboy: He was a big fan of -> see the Avengers before he started superheroing. He's also a big Norse Mythology geek.
* AtrociousAlias: He changed his codename to 'Wiccan' when it was pointed out to him what the media would do with a gay superhero named 'Asgardian.' This is Loki's opinion of 'Wiccan', too. And now, in ''ComicBook/NewAvengers2015'', Power Man once again calls attention to this, saying that Wiccan calling himself thus without actually being one is a misrepresentation of actual Wiccans. Not long after, he decides to change his name to something he knows he will become in the future, name a "Demiurge", thanks to [[spoiler:a case of demonic possession.]] Afterward, he dumps the name, but doesn't go back to Wiccan.
* BadassCape: All three of his outfits. His fondness for capes has reach memetic level in fandom.
* BattleCouple: He's dating fellow superhero teammate Hulkling.
* BadassGay: A powerful reality warper and magic user, also, to quote him, "very, very gay."
* BecauseYouWereNiceToMe: He idolized Scarlet Witch even before finding out about his heritage because she once cheered him up after being bullied.
* BerserkButton: Don't loot Asgardian relics, especially in a disaster area. He will literally smite you.
* BlessedWithSuck: Being a RealityWarper means his mistakes can spin out of control and spell doom for everyone. It also draws attention, from forces that seek to destroy, manipulate, or control him or just plain steal his powers.
* CuteWitch: He's an attractive magic user, as stated by Loki multiple times. It's a good bet that Teddy agrees, considering.
* DeadpanSnarker: He can be.
-->'''Eli:''' You got a better idea?
-->'''Billy:''' Gee, let me check my superhero manual. Oh, wait, it's in my other tights.
* DemonicPossession: Briefly, during ''New Avengers'', [[spoiler:he's taken over by Moridun of the Fifth Cosmos.]]
