Scarlet Witch #2



"I was definitely inspired by what Fraction and David Aja have done on HAWKEYE — how they managed to stay true to the character in the Avengers while also taking it in a fresh direction, so it wasn't just that same Avengers character doing solo things, which I don’t think ever really works for any sustained period of time for any of those second-tier characters." -- James Robinson

Squadron Supreme #2



"There were so many characters in Hickman’s Avengers story that his Hyperion only had some amount of screen time. A lot of the focus on the character that I was able to get was the one-off special written by Al Ewing." - James Robinson

Scarlet Witch #1 - "About the Death of Many Cats"



"I think one of the things that I remember saying when I was pitching this to Marvel a long time ago is that you, me, most anybody who’s somewhat conversant with comic books can tell you Tony Stark’s personality, or Wasp’s personality, or Thor’s personality. I’m sure you could probably tell me, I don’t know, Foggy Nelson’s personality! But when you go to Wanda, it’s interesting that she doesn’t really have a locked-down personality—what she has is a series of incidents that have befallen her in her life, with the Vision, the High Evolutionary, with Magneto as her father, then Magneto wasn’t her father. All of this stuff is going on, but who is she as a person? What is she like?" -- James Robinson

Squadron Supreme #1-2



"In the last few years Namor has crossed the line from an anti-hero to something a little bit darker. I mean we’ve seen absolutely no remorse whatsoever from him lately." - James Robinson

Scarlet Witch #1




"I've been talking to Jason Aaron about making sure that she isn’t just a female Doctor Strange. There are differences even between her and Doctor Strange so that her magic is different; I'm really making a point of stressing that there's a female energy that connects with a certain kind of magic. As a sort of shorthand, I'm calling it 'witchcraft,' but there are literally areas of dimensions that she can go to that Doctor Strange wouldn't be able to go to, because he's a man."

Airboy #4

"Airboy is the best thing James Robinson has ever done, thanks in no small part to the outstanding artwork of Greg Hinkle. As insanely imaginative as it is cringe-inducingly honest, this is mandatory reading." -- Brian K. Vaughan

Age of Ultron Vs. Marvel Zombies #4



"If anything it’s like the TV series ‘Lost’—if the robots and zombies were trying to defeat/eat the survivors." -- James Robinson

Armor Wars #5



"So many events and series such as this — from all the companies — come with much fanfare and yet seem to end with just an out-of-tune sad trombone heard faintly in the distance. But we have a mandate to make this matter and have elements of our stories that will matter in the main Marvel Universe coming out the other side of it." -- James Robinson

Airboy #2-3



"I spent 6 years of art school trying to avoid drawing genitalia, only to have a multiple page nude scene with James Robinson in AIRBOY." -- Greg Hinkle

Armor Wars #4-5



"He's had the yoke of responsibility on his shoulders his whole life, inheriting 'the throne' of Technopolis from his father Howard and 'ruling' the place with strength and calm. So here he isn't the playboy. He's happily with Pepper who's his Baroness. He's more regal. But that wild Tony Stark attitude will manifest itself in other ways — especially during combat." -- James Robinson

Age of Ultron Vs. Marvel Zombies #3-4



"I had the idea of an area on the border between the worlds of Ultron and the Zombies, where humanity was holding out withstanding these two opposing types of inhumanity. From there it became the idea of a war between Ultron’s robots and the zombie horde with this bastion of humanity as the prize." -- James Robinson

Armor Wars #3 - "Fight Night"



"It's all quite Shakespearian actually. With repulsor rays." -- James Robinson
