"What motivates anyone to risk destroying the [universe]? Sometimes, it’s because things have changed around them, in ways they feel have threatened or marginalized them, and they’re trying to take control—or maybe, deep down, just lashing out at an enemy they feel has humiliated them somehow. As above, so below. Maybe Order and Chaos want to ‘take their reality back,’ to coin a phrase." -- Al Ewing

The first arc of Al Ewing and Paco Medina's U.S.Avengers wraps up this week with the final battle against the Golden Skull, a supervillain who bears more than a little resemblance personality-wise to a certain gold-and-winning-obsessed President of the United States.

But the name of the U.S.Avengers' helicarrier is either the best comics coincidence in recent memory or the result of a really quick change in the text. )

"I'm also taking some inspiration from old Captain America stories from the past — that sense of writers in dark times exploring what their country meant to them — and a few yet to come. The U.S. Avengers are going to have their role to play in the future." -- Al Ewing

"We’ve seen cosmic science, issue #2 of ULTIMATES SQUARED deals with cosmic parapsychology. If there’s something strange in your universe, who you gonna call?" -- Al Ewing

"I honestly have no idea what America will be or represent when the book comes out. I don’t even know what America will look like when this interview comes out. Things are really not normal right now, and it seems like every day brings some new piece of ugly strangeness to our attention. I’m scared for my friends.

"In a context like that, I wonder how useful escapism or superhero thrills can be, but as part of a balanced diet and as a means of taking a breather, recharging the batteries, and maybe finding some sort of positive inspiration in a difficult time, I’d at least like to believe it does more good than harm. And having the United States represented in this hour by this team feels relatively positive."

"It's the next level. Ultimate ULTIMATES. We’re going bigger, weirder, stranger, more cosmic, more out there, more everything." -- Al Ewing

'When you have this much sturm and drang going on in the Marvel Universe, it’s bound to affect things on the edges — I liken it to something like the play “Noises Off,” where there’s the action going on on the stage and the drama happening backstage, and one affects the other. “New Avengers” glances off the main “CW2” plot, but we’ll be coming out of it in a very different place from where we go in.' -- Al Ewing

"This isn't just disagreeing on an issue - this is a serious philosophical schism that has a serious chance of destroying their ability to work together. Up until now we've had five very strong, powerful personalities in a room together without a serious argument - what happens when there is one and suddenly these five, who aren't used to backing down or admitting they're in the wrong, are crossing each others' red lines?" -- Al Ewing

Oops, it turns out I was mistaken and it actually hasn't been a full month since the issue came out. I'm deleting the pages, but I'll keep the post up so the comments won't be lost.

"We're all human, and we've all got that. That's worth something, being human. That's probably the moral of everything I've done, to be honest. It's not a great or meaningful message, but there we are. We exist." -- Al Ewing

'Thanos has been "reformed" before, and - much as I enjoyed it while it was happening - it didn't take in the end. We're going to go in the other direction with Thanos, as long as we've got him - we're going to try and make him more terrifying, if such a thing is possible. Galactus, we were often told, has a higher purpose. I don't remember anyone saying anything as nice about the Mad Titan. And when you stare into the burning eyes of Thanos, what looks back at you? Do you see madness? Evil personified? Or something more horrific... Nothing at all?' -- Al Ewing

"Since the New Avengers were formed from the heroes we love but the Marvel Universe forgets in favor of the Caps, Thors and Iron Men, these villains are the strange, the forgotten, the out-and-out weird, come together to prove just how dangerous they can be. Hopefully this will be a new beginning for at least a couple of these bizarre maniacs. There's evil gold in them thar hills, and I plan to make it shine." -- Al Ewing
