Runaways, the Good Die Young, is the 3rd Marvel Comics trade paper back of a series that's now (January 2010) 13 books long. In the 1st TPB Alex, Karolina, Gert, Chase, Molly & Nico, a group of teens that have been friends because their parents were, discover that their parents are all secretly super-powered villains called the Pride that rule West coast crime. The shocked teenagers find strength in one another, running away from home & finding adventure vowing to turn the table on their evil legacy. By book 3, the kids have discovered more of their parents history & intent, as well as their own powers & determination. Karolina is an alien, Molly is a super-strong mutant, Gert is psionically connected to a Deinonychus-like dinosaur & Nico is bonded with the mystical Staff of One. Alex & Chase have worked hard to defend the group from their parents manipulations, including being framed for murder, & the team takes refuge in a mansion dubbed the Hostel, which had sunk below ground during an earthquake. In book 3, the fledgling heroes have decided to end their parent's criminal organization, they find out who their mole is & the battle reaches its shocking conclusion & the kids finally meet the beings who empowered their parents in the first place; the Gibborim! I think its fairly obvious that readers should start at the beginning of the whole series, but Vol. 4, True Believers, or Vol. 11, Dead Wrong are both the start of new story arcs & can be used as jumping on points. The different authors keep continuity, there are plenty of appearances by well known marvel characters such as Captain America, & Cloak & Dagger throughout the books. The art is simple & clear but also dynamic & strong. The concept of teens taking on their parents is timeless & its about time Marvel started using the 'next' generation of heroes!

I really hope there's more because I was not satisfied in the least. For one who isn't too big into superhero comics, Runaways just appeals to me for some reason.

Summary: By decoding the book that they stole from their parents, our gang of misfit teen superheroes have uncovered their parents' plans for taking over the world... and they've also figured out a way to stop them! However, there parents have discovered the location of their hideout, and there's a traitor in their midst that might make things difficult for them. On the plus side, this last point is a condition they share with the parents, what with trust and loyalty being in somewhat short supply amongst a gang of supervillains.Review: My gut reaction to this volume was something along the lines of: "Oh. Well, now." The breakneck speed, kick-butt action, ample humor, and vibrant artwork that populated the first two volumes are all here, and I definitely enjoyed it. It's just that the plot reaches a point in this volume that I wasn't expecting to get to for at least another two or three installments, and the fact that it got to that point so soon left me a little wrong-footed. I'm well-enough versed in the narrative structure of comics that I'm not going to call it a resolution, but it is a major turning point for the plot of the series, and I am really unsure where the story is going to go from here. 4 out of 5 stars.Recommendation: As I said, I don't have the faintest idea where the story's going next, but I'm enjoying the series as a whole enough that I'm eager to find out!

Volume 3 of Runaways features the teenaged heroes as they make their move on The Pride, their evil collection of parents. Before that, though, we learn more about the Pride and their motivations - which are definitely unique as far as villain motivation is concerned.This definitely feels like a conclusion to the series, as we see the kids and their parents "in final battle", and the 'traitor' subplot also reaches its conclusion (although not with the revelation I had been expecting!) Knowing that the series continues, however, it will be interesting to see where they go next with this series.

This book had some twists and turns because alex is the mole. I thought that he was the main kid that would kill his parents but he was the one that was on the parents side and all this time i thought that molly was the one how was going to help the pride but i was wrong. Then Alex got killed by the gibborim.
