In a two-part storyline launching in early 2012, the teen heroes will guest star in Christos Gage's acclaimed series as potential antagonists for Hank Pym's troubled students.
The Runaways were created by Brian K. Vaughan in 2003 but have been relatively dormant in the Marvel Universe since Kathryn Immonen's run with the team ended in November 2009.
Scriptwriter Drew Pearce recently claimed a Runaways film is still in the works but is simply on hold until the release of The Avengers.
Avengers Academy #27 will be published in March 2012.
