"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

'Our first story is, as near as Brevoort and I can remember, the first time since 1963 that someone’s actually done an Avengers origin story; because when we pick up after Secret Wars, there is no formal “Avengers” team for the first time ever.' -- Mark Waid

"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

"The period novel in the Marvel Universe feels most unusual for me, especially without a lot of satire. I did some period stuff in Journey Into Mystery and Uncanny X-Men, but I was broadly satirical. I did a whole issue of Uncanny about Dostoyevsky and it was a broad parody. This isn’t, it’s firmly in the setting." -- Kieron Gillen

'Really, I look at this as a singular statement of novelistic intent about a character who is iconic and important. To me it’s like “why did you need Dark Knight Returns?” This is a rare chance to do with a Marvel character something of singular emotional importance, to really try to do something like that.' -- Kieron Gillen

"Logan spends the majority of the issue in his cage. It struck me that a way to capture that claustrophobia would [be] to do the whole issue in an Alan-Moore-esque nine-panel grid. You can even imagine the grid as the bars of a cage, if you see what I mean." -- Kieron Gillen
