'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

"I was inspired there by an old Stephen King story about a giant finger that erupts out of a plughole. When I handed in the plot for that episode, I was told I was a very sick man." -- Al Ewing

"Maria Hill is convinced A.I.M. is ready to break bad in a big way, if they haven't already. Remember, Roberto Da Costa is a dangerous mutant, the son of a known baddie, who’s been tipped by Professor X himself to turn towards the dark side. He’s run with all kinds of shady characters in the past, from the Vanisher to Magneto to that guy with the green topknot. He was trained to be a member of a paramilitary youth movement, and then trained to be a member of an even more violent paramilitary youth movement by a man with a cyborg arm who is also Deadpool’s best chum." -- Al Ewing

"What's in this briefcase could destroy the Ultimates...FOREVER!!!" -- Cover text

"What can destroy a team as powerful as this? Well, irreconcilable internal differences would do it, and this crossover is called 'Civil War'." -- Al Ewing

"The original Civil War was a fairly simple choice -- either obey the Superhuman Registration Act or rebel against it -- with one side pitted against the other. The two sides in this new one are much murkier -- there are all sorts of gradations and moral mazes involved." -- Al Ewing

'If you’ve ever seen the trio of plays “The Norman Conquests”—three plays set at the same time in different rooms—that's the kind of thing. NEW AVENGERS is happening in the next room of the House of Ideas, and we get to see what happens behind the scenes of a major crossover while the rest of the Marvel Universe is busy. How come no villains ever time any crimes or schemes to occur during these big hero-on-hero battles, people ask? Well, they did. And here it is.' -- Al Ewing

"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
