Today's Speculator's Corner focus is Young Avengers (2005) #1 from Marvel. Not only does this issue feature the first appearance of Kate Bishop, who has made rumblings as a potential Netflix series, but also the first appearance of Wiccan (one of Scarlet Witch and Vision's children), who is rumored to appear in the fourth Avengers movie coming out in 2018. Speed, Wiccan's twin brother and also rumored to appear, makes his first appearance in Young Avengers #10.
