A young man wearing armor came from the future fleeing Kang the Conqueror. He arrived at Avengers Mansion, but it is abandoned in light of the Scarlet Witch's mental breakdown. He headed to Stark Industries. Nathaniel Richards was able to access the A.I. of Vision and uploaded it into the armor.
The A.I. explained that it contained the Avengers Fail-Safe Program listing young heroes related to the Avengers. He formed a team with Eli Bradley, Billy Kaplan, and Teddy Altman. They took every mission available, such as rescuing people during a fire. After their first mission was recounted in the Daily Bugle, Jessica Jones was sent to investigate the heroes who had been nicknamed Iron Kid, Lieutenant America, Teen-Hulk, and Thor Jr.. Captain America and Iron Man also investigated.
Cassie Lang was interested in following her father's legacy, and her powers accidentally triggered during an argument with the others. Kate Bishop accompanied the heroes after helping them fight off kidnappers at her sister's wedding.
Sometime after their induction into the Avengers, the Young Avengers again decided to disband due largely to Wiccan's urging. Teddy and Tommy moved in with the Kaplans, but Tommy moved out a short time later. Kate began working with Clint Barton, while Teddy used his shapeshifting power to take on the identity of other superheroes to continue his heroics in secret.
When Billy learned about the secret superhero acts of Teddy, they had a fight which ended with Billy searching the multiverse for a reality where Teddy's mom wasn't dead and transport her to their reality. Instead he took an interdimensional parasite who impersonated her. She killed Billy's parents and replaced them. Meanwhile, Loki (who was aware of Billy's mistake) went to his home to stop him from taking the parasite to the Earth by killing him. Before he could do anything America Chavez appeared to stop Loki.
