> I think marvel is a bit ego confident on YA. They think they can just start it back up "someday" and save it as one of Heinberg's eggs.
What he means by this statement (which sounds totally cryptic if you don't know the story behind it) is that YA was originally planned for March of this year. It was going to come out bi-monthly and be another 12 issue run. The title was (and maybe still is) going to be Young Avengers: Season 2.
But Heinberg now has a job as Staff Writer on Grey's Anatomy which takes up most if not all of his time. After that, Joe Q. made the following statement (http://www.newsarama.com/NewJoeFridays/NewJoeFridays17.html)
Q: "johhnypanic" - When is Allen Heinberg coming back to write Young Avengers?
JQ: Hey, johnnypanic, we’ll have some news about Mr. Heinberg’s imminent return very soon. Currently he’s incredibly busy with his TV writing work (on Grey’s Anatomy) and last I spoke to Allen, he was chomping on the bit to get back to comics, but unfortunately his day job eats up a lot of his free time.
A couple months later the March 2007 start date turned into this (http://www.newsarama.com/NewJoeFridays/NewJoeFridays22.html)
RQ: “ChrisG” - Just wanted to know if there's any update on Young Avengers. Have they even started and how are things coming along because there was no February solits. Any news on that?
JQ: Jim Cheung is busy drawing the New Avengers Illuminati limited series (here are some pages), and Allan Heinberg is enmeshed in all things Grey’s Anatomy, so at this point there is no set timeframe for Young Avengers to return.
Which a week later turned into this(http://www.newsarama.com/NewJoeFridays/NewJoeFridays23.html)
NRAMA: Joe, regarding Young Avengers, you've explained in the past that you wanted Heinberg and Cheung to be able to return to the title they created and that was originally expected to be early 2007, right after Civil War: Young Avengers/Runways. With Heinberg's return now a question mark as detailed last week, will you give any consideration to letting another creative team take over the series, as its fans seem willing to accept a new team?
JQ: At the moment, no. This book would have never existed without Allan, he pulled it out of the ether so it's not like he was working on Spider-Man and we're saying that no one can do Spider-Man until he comes back to it. So, let's see what happens down the road.
I know Allen is chomping at the bit to come back and do more Young Avengers, but he's decided to slum it in the world of TV for while. Lord knows what he sees in that medium [laughs].
Also, Allan is one of the most genuinely nice people I've had the pleasure of meeting in this business and I know that his lack of time for the project is a constant source of much frustration for him as he loves the book, the characters and the support the fans have given it and him and wants to do more, but he does have a day gig.
Which is the story at this point. It is unclear when, or even if, Young Avengers will ever come back.
