'Makes perfect sense for that idea, that a middle-aged man says a magic word and becomes a teenage superhero. But, a joke is not a series. That’s something I learned early on with things like “Insufferable” or “Irredeemable.” You can have a cool clever twist on it like middle-aged man becomes a teenage superhero, but unless there’s more to it, that’s a one note joke.' -- Mark Waid

"One of the big hurdles for a science guy like me to leap is mythology ... It's a personal failing, but while I appreciate myth and magic, they don't move me the way science does." -- Mark Waid

'Okay, let's talk about "virtue signalling" for a moment. First, you cynical fucks who use it as a pejorative, sometimes other people need to know that they're not alone, esp. in rural communities, etc. Speaking with compassion isn't about scoring points, it's about reaching out and reminding each other than we're not alone. Second, the naked cynicism of the term "virtue signalling" is stomach-turning. We can be better than this. YOU can be better than this. Cynicism has only one purpose--to make you feel cool. (And in that way, it's even more "virtue signalling" than "virtue signalling" is.) Cynicism brings nothing to any table. It has no up side. It exists only to denigrate. And that's why I hate it, and that's why you never see it in my work. We can be better.' -- Mark Waid

"I hate trying to find roles for that bird. In the words of Tom Peyer, Redwing is the Aqualad of the Avengers." -- Mark Waid

'Transparency. “No More Secrets.” Widow’s actions of the past have come back to haunt her in a damaging way, and now she’s trying to help others avoid a similar fate.' -- Mark Waid

'It speaks to one of the friction points that keeps the collaboration strong. The tag line of the series is, “If you could change into a teenage superhero, would you ever change back?” Why would you ever change back? [Co-writer Tom Peyer] and I have two completely different points of view on this. My attitude is, No! I would never change back. Not for one heartbeat. What are you, crazy? Tom has a much more nuanced, adult attitude about it.' -- Mark Waid

"[It was] a little terrifying. I’ve always been a fan of the Wasp, the thing we had to be most careful about was making readers understand that this isn’t a dismissal of Janet Van Dyne or her legacy, and I think we’ve accomplished that in the way we’ve set up our story. We’re not in any way trying to replace Janet." -- Mark Waid
