The series only lasted twelve issues due to lack of interest, and is generally regarded as a [[TheyWastedAPerfectlyGoodPlot poorly executed good idea]]. The characters remain as C-listers in the Marvel Universe, with Dusk appearing as a prisoner of the Puppet Master in a ''Ms. Marvel'' comic, Hornet getting killed by a brainwashed Wolverine, Ricochet joining a "teenage superhero recovery group", and Prodigy actually having an impact on the events of [[ComicBook/CivilWar Marvel's Civil War]]. Compare ''ComicBook/{{Runaways}}''.
