Parker: "It's funny. You see a little bit right off the back where Songbird thinks, 'Why are they bringing Moonstone in? They already tried with her, and it didn't work out.' Luke tries to explain why they still thing it's worth doing with Moonstone. Everybody tends to think that they're special, and say 'It worked for me, but I don't know that everybody will respond to the system.' Even though Songbird changed, she felt she was never that bad to begin with.
"And Moonstone was an Avenger the other day! Her status goes way up and down pretty fast. She's usually thinking, 'I've been a Thunderbolt before. Blah Blah Blah.' But it's not that anyone will care. And who knows what Man-Thing is thinking!"
Walker: "I was just really conscious of making Moonstone and Songbird different, perhaps even opposites. Moonstone is flighty and excitable, fiery even, self confident, perhaps even arrogant. When I looked at the existing designs for these two women, it was hard to tell them apart, the hair was the same, the suit was almost the same, the way the walked was almost the same. These two women are like fire and ice, light and dark. Moonstone is the Light, so I guess Songbird is the Dark.
"I just had the feeling that [Songbird] was more menacing, more brooding. I read the TPB where she had the big run in with Bullseye, and they seemed pretty evenly matched. That struck a chord, as if she's the female version Bullseye. Moonstone might stab you in the back, but Songbird would twist the blade. The haircut reflects that. Perhaps she's in some kind of character shift, heading towards some kind of break down? I don't know. But I wanted her to look as if she inhabited a darker space than she used to."See the rest of the designs over at CBR
