* SlutShaming: Kate mentally discusses it with herself in the beginning of the first issue of the new series, thinking she should be ashamed of herself for having a one-night-stand with Marvel Boy. She then decides that such thoughts are idiotic.
** Played straight out of universe though. #3's letter page has a very critical letter attached concerning this, believing that the two sleeping together makes them both 'instantly dislikable', as it's not the kind of behaviour superheroes should be partaking in. While Kieron Gillen disagrees and had to respond in the most withdrawn manner he could, he vents his frustration at this sentiment on his tumblr page, while mentioning that it's not the only letter like this he got (he chose the one that was actually printable), with most putting focus on Kate doing the act. Evidently, Mr Gillen does ''not'' like the idea that there's anything wrong with a woman sleeping with a guy she likes on the first date.

** New series' additions subverts this - Noh-Varr tried to be this to ComicBook/CaptainMarVell, but it didn't work, Creator/KieronGillen noted he would be surprised if Miss America even heard of UsefulNotes/TheGoldenAgeOfComicBooks character that originally used the name and Kid Loki actually is ComicBook/TheMightyThor's ArchEnemy reborn as a kid [[spoiler: who then got his body hijacked by his old self]], rather than this. Tommy actually has a rant in issue 6 about how much he hates the concept, saying that heroes should find their own style and not copy someone else, revealing in the process that he turned down the idea of calling himself "Quickersilver".

* LoveTriangle: The original team basically consisted of the stable gay couple and two sets of love triangles: a BettyAndVeronica situation with Kate, nice guy Eli, and bad boy Tommy; and the angstier/quirkier triangle between Cassie, a guy she knew for a few hours, and a robot with the memories of the guy she knew for a few hours. By the end of ChildrensCrusade, these triangles are resolved when [[spoiler:''none'' of them end up together.]]

* MeaningfulName: This might not be intentional, but Wiccan and Hulkling's names are Billy and Teddy, which is reminiscent of [[Film/BillAndTed another pair of very close friends]] (Time travel, anyone?). However, those two are no where near as close as Wiccan and Hulkling.
* MoodWhiplash: Issue 6 of vol.2 starts lighthearted with Tommy befriending David over their shitty jobs and turns into horror [[spoiler: when some creature shows up in Eli[=/=]Patriot's costume stealing from their work place. Tommy tries to investigate it only to under go a MindRape scene when he tries to confront it and the costume makes him disappear without a trace before seemingly taunting the powerless David to put it (the hollow Patriot costume) on and disappear itself after he refuses]].

** In the new series, Kid!Loki is manipulating the formation of this new team for reasons known only to himself - he specifically notes that getting Comicbook/TheAvengers together is a classic Loki thing to do. (This is at least the third time that he's done it, and the second time on purpose.)
** The Stature/Iron Lad/Vision love triangle replicates the Scarlet Witch/Wonder Man/Vision love triangle. The Visions keep having this problem.

** Siege gives us a pretty bad one for Wiccan. Just...don't loot any Asgardian treasures. Especially in the middle of a disaster area. And don't mock Asguard. Given the kinds of things Wiccan can do now, it's probably for the best that this particular button haven't come up since.

Generally, reception has been positive, especially from LGBTQIA readers. According to most people some of the best things on the original book were the cultural diversity of the members and the honest presentation of a relatively realistic gay couple who (so far) haven't had it any worse than any other superhero in the biz. However inside Marvel, the team is very well liked and protected, having appeared in almost all of the major events since its formation, having regular appearances and cameos in other titles to keep the characters from falling in limbo, giving its creator the task of bringing back major characters in a story of the team, honoring most of the creator's decision for the characters in his final story and launching a new volume with a fresh direction to not collide with the original direction the team's creator had.

* BigApplesauce: WordOfGod is that Earth-212, the place where Loki first meets America (the person), is a platonic ideal of America where Manhattan has [[ExaggeratefTrope expanded across the entire globe with mountains]] of [[EiffelTowerEffect Lady Liberty]] in every bay.

After [[Comicbook/AvengersDisassembled The Avengers disassembled]], a young time traveler decided to [[IncrediblyLamePun assemble]] a team with people related to the Avengers history, however none of them knew how exactly they related to the Avengers so they decided to just use codenames and costumes related to the Big Four (Comicbook/IronMan, Comicbook/CaptainAmerica, [[Comicbook/IncredibleHulk Hulk]] and [[Comicbook/TheMightyThor Thor]]) as an homage. The initial lineup were Patriot (Elijah "Eli" Bradley), Asgardian (William "Billy" Kaplan), Hulkling (Theodore "Teddy" Altman) and Iron Lad (Nathaniel "Nate" Richards). Later, another four members joined: Stature (Cassandra "Cassie" Lang), [[LegacyCharacter Hawkeye II]] (Katherine "Kate" Bishop), Speed (Thomas "Tommy" Shepherd) and a younger version of The Vision, but Iron Lad left the team and Asgardian changed his codename to "Wiccan" thus forming the most classic lineup of the team. A year after the events of [[ComicBook/TheChildrensCrusade The Children's Crusade]], a new version of the team was formed including three of the original members (Wiccan, Hulkling and Hawkeye II) and three new members: Marvel Boy (Noh-Varr), Miss America (America Chavez) and Loki.
