    James Rogers

"Avengers, assemble!"

James is the son of Steve Rogers and Natasha Romanova. Appears to posses the same abilities as his father, including his indestructible shield.

Voiced By: Noah C. Crawford

  • Allergic to Routine: Routine doesn't agree with James, and he actively hates having to do something over and over. Near the beginning of the film, we see that just sitting still for a few hours annoys him more than anything, leading him to sneak off, then find and activate the robot Avengers.
  • Charles Atlas Superpower: His shtick, given that he's the only one of the original four to not have true superpowers. Thus he performs complicated acrobatic maneuvers effortlessly and can easily throw down with Ultron's goons. It helps that he has two of the most legendary super-soldiers in Marvel history for parents.
  • Deadly Disc: His energy shield can slice up object just as well as the original wielded by his father.
  • Dead Guy Junior: While never stated outright, it's implied James was named after his father's late friend James "Bucky" Barnes.
  • Determinator: Like father like son, don't ever expect him to give up.
  • Fiery Redhead: Played with, he's certainly outspoken and occasionally a Jerkass, but he's too level-headed and calm to fully fit the trope.
  • Iconic Item: His shield, which was built to be similar to his fathers. He eventually comes into possession of that shield as well.
  • Impossibly Cool Weapon: Once again, his shield.
  • Innocent Blue Eyes: Averted, he's quite easily the most jaded and cynical of the children at first, but his mood improves over the course of the movie.
  • It's All My Fault: Blames himself heavily for activating the Iron Avengers which lead Ultron to their home and got Tony captured,
  • Jerk with a Heart of Gold: He can be immature and quite a Jerkass at times, but if people's lives are on the line, he'll jump right in to save them.
  • The Leader: Much like his father.
  • Like Father, Like Son: James shares many similarities to his father, such as his inability to do nothing, his sense of justice, ability to inspire others and natural leadership.
  • Luckily, My Shield Will Protect Me: Wouldn't be the son of Captain America without this trope.
  • Magnetic Hero: Much like how his father was able to inspire the Avengers, James was able to inspire his friends to fight against Ultron.
  • My Sister Is Off-Limits!: Has this mindset with Torunn:
    Francis: Besides, anything to impress a girl right?
    James: Girl? Wait, you mean Torunn? Dude, she's like my sister!
    Francis: So, she's available then?
    James: No, she's not!
  • Nice Guy: Despite shades of Jerkassness early on, James is as noble a hero as his father, and is always there for his siblings.
  • Red Oni, Blue Oni: The blue to Hawkeye's red.
  • Shield Bash: Again, given who his father is, what else did you expect him to use?
  • Throwing Your Shield Always Works: Come on, it's gotta run in the family!
  • Wrecked Weapon: His energy shield. Later it's replaced by the original and promptly gets a re-baptism of fire when it's used to fight Ultron.

"Have at thee!"

Daughter of the Avenger Thor, and the Asgardian Sif. She is aided by an enchanted sword, similar to her father's mighty hammer Mjölnir.

    Henry Pym Jr.

"Hah! We showed him. We ARE dumb enough!"

The young and innocent son of Hank Pym and Janet Van Dyne.

Voiced By: Aidan Drummond

  • Adorkable: Seriously, he's almost ridiculously adorable in most of his scenes.
  • Attention Deficit... Ooh, Shiny!: He's got a pretty short attention span.
  • Badass Adorable: He is an adorable, funny little boy who can hold his own against an army of evil robots.
  • The Heart: To put it in perspective, he was the only one Hulk would listen to during the battle with Ultron.
  • The Gadfly: Likes to tease his friends every chance he gets.
  • Kid-Appeal Character: He fits into this by being youngest, dorkiest and friendliest member of the cast.
  • Let's Get Dangerous!: Do not mess with him or he will grow giant sized and start smashing stuff up.
  • Morality Pet: For the Hulk, when he's not stinging him in order to make him angry.
  • Motor Mouth: The boy almost never shuts up.
  • Only Known by Their Nickname: Technically last name, but everybody calls him Pym instead of Henry.
  • Out of Focus: Out of all the kids, except maybe Azari, he gets the least focus.
  • Red Oni, Blue Oni: The red to Azari's blue.
  • Size Shifter: As shown when battling Iron Giant-Man, he can go big as well as play the Incredible Shrinking Man, but he's not very skilled with the ability yet.
  • The Smart Guy: Is described as the 'tech-head' as he knows a thing or two about technology which he presumably gets from his parents.
  • Winged Humanoid: Of the "insect wings" variety.


"This plan seemed a lot better when Torunn and the Hulk were involved."

Azari T'challa T'chacka Evan Duke of Wakanda, is the son of Avenger Black Panther and mutant Storm.

Voiced By: Dempsey M. Pappion

  • Animal Motifs: The panther.
  • Cat Folk: Sort of, he has barely noticeable Cute Little Fangs.
  • Charles Atlas Superpower: Can jump several feet into the air and climb walls with ease.
  • Deadpan Snarker: Unlike T'Challa, who's often depicted as The Quiet One, Azari is very vocal when something or someone annoys him.
  • Electric Black Guy: The Token Black and has minor electricity manipulation.
  • The Lancer: Serves as a foil to James. He's humble, responsible, and (almost) always follows orders.
  • Ninja: Well, sorta. His training while growing up seems to have focused on stealth, and sneaking up on his opponents. However, he's still excellent in physical combat and could defeat the robotic version of his father in a physical fight.
  • Only Sane Man: Thinks he is compared to his Hot-Blooded, rule-breaking siblings.
  • Out of Focus: Arguably more so than Pym, in fact. As an example, he's the only one who doesn't have/isn't given a secondary subplot like his siblings and Francis did/were (even Pym is tasked with recruiting Hulk later on).
  • Panthera Awesome: He officially takes up the title Black Panther after defeating the robotic Black Panther by the end of the film.
  • Properly Paranoid: His apprehension over investigating the secret passage under the Avengers monument, and later charging in to rescue Tony from Ultron without any real plan proved justified both times.
  • The Quiet One: Averted; very vocal compared to his father.
  • The Reliable One: Always follows Tony's instructions, unless pushed to do otherwise by his siblings.
  • Royals Who Actually Do Something: Technically, being T'Challa's son makes him a prince.
  • Scary Black Man: Downplayed. First for being a kid, second for being a mostly personable guy who gets easily flustered by his less responsible siblings.
  • Shock and Awe: Has the ability to manipulate electricity to a degree, often creating small lightning shields around his body to protect himself. He can later project an electric panther aura and generate powerful electric blasts.
  • Token Black: The only black hero on the team.

    Francis Barton (Hawkeye II)

"Scavengers, disappear!"

Son of Clint Barton and Barbara "Bobbi" Morse.

Voiced By: Adrian Petrew

  • All Men Are Perverts: Even though he's just a kid, he wastes no time in flirting with Torunn.
  • Anti-Hero: On account of his argumentative and stubborn attitude as a result of being told he was the sole remainder of the Avengers for years, not to mention nearly leaving the other children to be killed by Ultron's drone army.
  • Badass Normal: He's the only member of the Next Avengers to have no superpowers of any kind, but can still hold his own to their level and possibly beyond due to his fighting experience.
  • Big Damn Heroes: Pulls this off when Ultron is about to finish off the other young heroes in their attempt to rescue Tony.
  • Changed My Mind, Kid: Initially he refuses to go to Ultron's citadel with the other children, but with some convincing from the Scavengers he changes his mind and goes to help save them from Ultron.
  • Deadpan Snarker: The snarkiest of the Avengers children.
    Torunn: Today we meet our destinies!
    Hawkeye: She means that in a good way, right?
  • Embarrassing First Name: He's not too fond of being called 'Francis', as he hit Pym on the head with an arrow when he did, and prefers to be called 'Hawkeye' or 'Barton'.
  • Improbable Aiming Skills: Just like his old man, he's just that good with a bow.
  • The Resistance: He was the leader of the last known human remnant group known as the Scavengers and kept them safe after his father, who previously led the group, had been killed by Ultron.
  • Ship Tease: With Torunn.
  • Smug Super: Which is interesting as he's the only member of the team without powers, but to a degree, it makes some sense in context. While the other children had been training to fight Ultron since birth, he's been actually fighting Ultron's army in the real world for almost all of his life.
  • Trick Arrow: One of his standard tricks, just like the original Hawkeye.
  • Vitriolic Best Buds: With James, in the sense that the two argue frequently and rarely agree on anything, yet when push comes to shove the two will stand up for one another.


How well does it match the trope?
