"As I write this [issue], we're on a the eve of a vote that will decide whether my country continues as part of a community of nations or tries to go it alone, a referendum that could set the tone of how we deal with the world outside our small island for a generation. By the time you read this, we'll know how that went. Meanwhile, in the Marvel Universe, in a pub just down the road from my house, five total strangers from five totally different countries raise their glasses to celebrate becoming friends. And, y'know... that's nice." -- Al Ewing

"The Inhumans are trying to be friendly with the human world, but they're not the human world and they never will be. When you come out of the cocoon as an Inhuman, you are no longer standing on the same planet." -- Al Ewing

"That’s the most unsettling thing about the Maker--that he started out as Reed Richards, the man who started it all in 1961 and was Marvel’s greatest and least fallible hero. If someone like Reed can be twisted towards evil, what chance do any of us have?" -- Al Ewing

"Well, CW2 is all about heading off threats; predicting the future and preventing bad future events is at the core of the dilemma. Really, the Ultimates are already trying to avoid terrible things coming down the pipe towards humanity—for example, being eaten by Galactus—and the events of CW2 provide them with the perfect tool to keep doing what they were doing." -- Al Ewing

"CIVIL WAR 2 is just the excuse we need - and we'll see people literally using it as their excuse - to back up a truck of manure, manure that's on fire and also there is lava, just back it right up and dump it all over the New Avengers."

'Well, we're tying into "Civil War!" "Civil War" One, that is! I'll be honest, we thought it'd be funny.' -- Al Ewing

'I've got a whole bunch of thoughts about the Inhumans, but relating to this [series] -- it's the "falling out of the world" aspect. You get that sometimes with mutants, as well -- that thing where you thought you were in a world that nurtured you, but actually you're in one that hates and fears you -- but it feels like a more extreme shift with the Inhumans, in that Inhumans have their own culture, their own rules, their own ethics, their own ways of doing things, much more than Mutants do.' -- Al Ewing

'The nice thing about the moral dilemma this time around is that there's more than two sides [...] This isn't as simple as, "either you're obeying Law X or defying it" -- there are so many different facets of the argument [of Civil War II] to explore that it's entirely possible the Ultimates will split five ways, not just two. And will they be able to come back from something like that?' -- Al Ewing

'I still believe "A-list" and "D-list" are essentially fake ideas in cape comics. That's probably why I like the "D-list" more, actually - I've got an affinity for the metafictional underdogs.' -- Al Ewing

"Their own book is quite thoughtful -- violence isn't really the point of that one -- so it's fun to bring them over to a book that's all about super-people punching each other very hard." -- Al Ewing

"One thing that’s very different is that nobody dies in the game. You never have to say goodbye to the characters you’ve become attached to. Readers of the comic will not have that luxury." -- Al Ewing

"This is the dawn of...Avenger Five! Wait, aren't we missing a number? Where's Avenger Two? What is Avenger Two? Why does nobody talk about it? Could it herald an even bigger battle than Standoff?" -- Al Ewing
