"[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

"I think he’s one of those characters that’s gotten the short shrift. He’s like the Martian Manhunter of the Avengers.

"The generational aspect was something that we backed into more than planned. The initial goal was to mix in two or three heroes who’d never been Avengers before, and if you've read Jonathan Hickman's excellent run, you’ll sympathize when I say that my choices were few and far between. Hickman’s Avengers included half the New Warriors, some of the Fantastic Four, all of the Green Bay Packers, and my Aunt Madeline, who was of no help." -- Mark Waid

"After the Jonathan Hickman era fielding the largest active Avengers team ever, we wanted to pull back to a more manageable scale and a tight team of characters whose interactions and relationships could form the backbone of the drama." -- Editor Tom Brevoort

"To me, the fun of writing any team book is seeing how its members react to one another in the non-action moments. What happens when you strand these two on a desert island? What about when you take these three, who’ve never shared page-time before, and send them on a do-or-die mission?" -- Mark Waid
