Kieron Gillen gave an interview to CBR where he talked about his plans for Uncanny and team dynamics.


"These are powerful and egocentric characters. One of the main reasons people become "villains" is because they want something and their weakness makes them reach for it. Since several of the team members are recovering villains, that will become quite evident in their first outing," Gillen said.


"Part of the fun is seeing them all together," Gillen continued. "Namor is actually oddly funny. He says a lot of genuinely surprisingly funny things. And it twists characters. When Hope is the presence of the 'Gen Hope' kids, she's very serious and overly responsible. She's basically very adult. Amongst the X-Men, she's a slightly different creature. She's still a soldier, but she's much more brash and even lighter, as the responsibility is off her. So she and Namor end up getting along quite well together."


Magik and Colossus' codependent relationship may make them feel like outsiders within the Extinction Team, but they can still count on each other. Some of their teammates, like Magneto and Storm, are more isolated and have no real confidants that they can turn to for advice and support.

"Magneto is kind of on the edge of the group, because he is Magneto. They are not going to completely trust him. He knows that he could move towards the center of the group by being diplomatic and putting himself next to Cyclops, but seems to be avoiding it. (...) Storm has a much more difficult role to play. She's the moral anchor of the team. Scott told her that if everyone in the room is saying, 'Yep. We should kill everybody,' it's her job to go, 'No! No! No! We are not killing anybody!' One of my favorite pages in the first issue was her and Magneto, where she says how much she hates violence -- and had just blown something enormous up.

Man, they've really done a role reversal on Cyclops and Storm, huh? Used to be he was the uptight guy who didn't want the X-Men to kill and she had little trouble with knife fights and kill orders.

She told Wolverine he could bring in the Marauders any way he liked 'em, as long as he left at least one alive.

I thought it was Marrow who had two hearts.

That was indeed Marrow. She nearly killed Callisto though.

I don't know about that. Cyclops' descent into darkness started when he'd been briefly merged with Apocalypse. Storm's marriage to T'Challa could have softened her a bit. At least in terms of having to deal with political situations more often and having to be a bit more...careful...with her actions/words.

It's character development that sort of makes sense when you think about it.

Storm's hard when she needs to be soft when she can be. When everyone around her is being hard not only CAN she be soft it's actually best if she is.

Storm is the weather: a furious storm one minute and a soothing mist the next. She's just a little less fickle about it.
