But when six friends discover the sinister double life of their parents, taking out the trash and no net surfing for a week are the least of their worries. At the risk of being permanently grounded, these teens come together to become runaways. But will they survive their flee from the nest?
RUNAWAYS #9 (2005)
There's nothing worse than being falsely accused of a crime you didn't commit, ask Cloak. When Cap and the Avengers come after Cloak for a crime he that he had no hand in, he is forced to flee New York in search of help. With his partner, Dagger, all black, blue and broken in the hospital, Cloak must call upon the Runaways to help clear his name and catch the real culprit behind the crime. Either the Runaways are that good at the hero thing, or Cloak is that desperate to keep other heroes off of his case.
CIVIL WAR: YOUNG AVENGERS & RUNAWAYS #1
Who doesn't want to see two teams of super powered teens duke it out? As the public begins to turn against many of the Marvel heroes in the thick of Civil War, the Runaways not only have to watch their back when fighting crime, but now that have to worry about whether or not they can trust the Young Avengers. Cars are thrown, robots are dismembered and of course a classic explosion or two go down when these teams meet. Don't miss this Civil War tie-in that promises to have lasting repercussions for both teams!
Now in the Big Apple, the Runaways end up going on the wrong side of the tracks and start doing some things that aren't exactly heroic. Recruited by none other that Willson Fisk, the Kingpin of Crime himself, the young super powered team gets entangled in a web of lies, deception and crime. So much happens, that by the end of this issue the Runaways have made some very surprising allies and one enemy in paticular who thinks these kids need to be "punished."
