The introduction of new characters and storylines each year is expanding the Marvel Cinematic Universe at a fast pace. The focus is now shifting towards new, younger characters like Cassie Lang in the upcoming movie Ant-Man and The Wasp: Quantumania, Kate Bishop in the Disney+ series Hawkeye, Wiccan and Speed in WandaVision, Kamala Khan in Ms. Marvel and The Marvels, and America Chavez in Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness. While these additions are great, there are many other great young superheroes whose introduction in the MCU will help form a foundation for future films.
1) Rikki Barnes Could Be A Great Addition To The Captain America Legacy
Rikki Barnes, also known as Nomad, first made an appearance as the daughter of Bucky Barnes in an alternate reality in Heroes Reborn Volume 1 #1 1/2 by Robert Liefield, Jeph Leob, Scott Lobdell, and Robert Ternaishi.
Her story can be easily altered for her introduction in the MCU, she could be introduced as a distant relative who gets to know Bucky or even an adopted daughter in a future series or movie.
2) Moon Girl Is An Inhuman Genius Who Would Be A Great Heroine For Younger Viewers
We might get to see more Inhuman characters being introduced in the MCU with the announcement of Ms. Marvel aka Kamala Khan joining the MCU. One Inhuman character that should be definitely introduced is Lunella Lafayette who is also known as Moon Girl.
She is one of the Marvel universe’s many super-geniuses. Being a young character, a movie or show focusing mainly on her adventures will definitely attract the younger audience.
3) White Tiger Could Introduce A New Heroic Legacy
After Hector Ayala and Angela del Toro, the newest person to take on the mantle of White Tiger is Ava Ayala, who was first introduced as a student at Avengers Academy in Avengers Academy Volume 1 #20 by Christos N. Gage, Tom Raney, and Scott Hanna. She later went on to join the Avengers and is currently a part of the Daughters Of Liberty.
A solo movie carried out by White Tiger will be appreciated by the fans thanks to the street-level action and mystic elements of her storylines.
4) Victor Mancha Is A Hero With A Connection To An MCU Villain
Victor Mancha, a cyborg, is the son of the villain Ultron. Ultron was brought into the MCU in the movie Avengers: Age Of Ultron and has not made an appearance since.
Victor would be an interesting addition to the MCU as a hero and assisting other heroes to try his stop his father after his return. He could also eventually join the Runaways just like the comics.
5) Nico Minoru Is A Sorceress That Can Bring A Popular Team To The MCU
Nico Minoru is a part of the Runaways. This team got a live-action television show which was appreciated by the fans. Reintroducing Nico would make sense, as her mother made a cameo in the MCU film Doctor Strange, as well as her magical Staff of One. On top of that, she is a member of A-Force, a team that could be appearing in the MCU soon.
6) Viv Vision Can Be The MCU’S Resident Heroic Synthezoid Now That Vision Is (Seemingly) Gone
In the comics, Vision created Viv Vision, his daughter; Vin, his son, and Virginia, their mother when he wanted to live a normal life. Vision could attempt to create a life like the one he had with the Scarlet Witch, as this version of Vision built by S.W.O.R.D. has all of Vision’s memories.
Introducing Viv Vision will open more doors and help in creating more movies in the future, also helping in the introduction of the team called Champions.
7) Unstoppable Wasp Can Be The Next Member Of The Pym-Van Dyne Family
Nadia van Dyne another Marvel character who is called the Wasp (or Unstoppable Wasp). She was created after Hope van Dyne’s MCU debut. Well yes, she is a lot like Hope van Dyne but she can still become a part of the MCU Ant-Man franchise simply as an extended member of the Pym or Van Dyne family. She can assist Cassie Lang in her future adventures.
8) Nova Is A Cosmic Hero Fans Have Been Waiting For
Nova is one of Marvel’s most recognizable cosmic heroes. Fans have been asking for and anticipating his MCU debut for years now. Two well-known people who have held the Nova title are Sam Alexander and Richard Rider.
Sam Alexander as a teen hero can focus on the storytelling opportunities and introduce the Nova the to the MCU and Richard Rider can become his mentor.
9) Hulkling Is The Perfect Addition To The Ongoing Skrull MCU Plotline
With the mention of Kree and the Skrulls in the MCU, we can expect the introduction of Hulkling, who is a Kree-Skrull hybrid, and one of his parents, Mar-Vell, was a part of the movie Captain Marvel. Hulking is also a part of the Young Avengers, a team that will be soon introduced in the future movies.
We can expect him in the upcoming film The Marvels carrying on Mar-Vell’s legacy from the first film.
10) Miles Morales Can Become Spider-Man As A Result Of The Snap
Miles Morales is another Spider-Man that many people are aware of. We can expect his appearance in the future films as his uncle appeared in Spider-Man: Homecoming and made a reference to having a nephew.
It could be possible that, like the comics (where Miles became Spider-Man after Peters assumed death), he stepped up as Spider-Man while Peter Parker was snapped away.
