Written by Noelle Stevenson (''Webcomic/{{Nimona}}'', ''ComicBook/{{Lumberjanes}}''), this series is a more of a SpiritualSuccessor, than a straight sequel, to the 2003 CultClassic ''ComicBook/{{Runaways}}'' series, following a different cast of characters, but using similar premise to that of the original series. The team roster is composed from alternate versions of various [[KidHero kid and teen superheroes]] from across Marvel's entire history.
