Marvel 75th Anniversary Celebration - "Anniversary"



'It's kind of the first day of the Marvel Universe. It's a very James Robinson story. It's of his oeuvre. If you think of the sort of things he did in the past whether it's "Starman," "The Golden Age" or some of the other things he did around the Justice Society characters that really played with and played into the history of the characters and the lineage of the publishing.' -- Tom Brevoort

Where were you the day the Fantastic Four went into outer space?

All-New Invaders #10



"I don’t think anyone can trust Namor completely. Not because of anything necessarily utterly complicitous, but he is possibly the most mercurial hero character in the Marvel Universe." -- James Robinson

Fantastic Four #8-9 - "East of Eden, Part One"



"I think I have a bit of a reputation for taking obscure or under-utilized characters and fleshing them out. I intend to really flesh out Hammond [the original Torch] and turn him into a truly compelling character." -- James Robinson

All-New Invaders #9



'I just really love Deathlok. Sometimes it comes down to that. At the time I pitched this idea to Marvel they were fine with it. The idea was that they're doing this new "Deathlok" series so why not give the other guys one last go?' -- James Robinson

All-New Invaders #8 - "Death-Locked!"



"People make the case that Namor might be [first] because he was written slightly earlier, but in terms of actual Marvel comics, the very first character on the cover was the Human Torch, and I always thought he was treated with a little disrespect. I wanted to bring him back, treat him well and give him a personality, which I enjoy doing with the more obscure characters." -- James Robinson

All-New Invaders #7



"The center of this book is Jim Hammond; my goal is to bring everything I can to him, and make him a vibrant character you really love. He’s Marvel’s first superhero, and it’s time he stepped up into spotlight." -- James Robinson

All-New Invaders #5 - "Gods and Soldiers, Part Five"



'They're never going to call themselves the Invaders. There's never going to be a moment where Nick Fury is looking solemnly at his men and says, "This is not a mission any one else can do. Call the Invaders." It's just going to be fate and happenstance that keeps bringing these guys together.' -- James Robinson

All-New Invaders #4 - "Gods and Soldiers, Part Four"



'I had a good idea for it, but if I hadn't, or it was only the Invaders fighting Nazis, I probably wouldn't have done it, because I feel like it's been done before and I don't want to be known as just "The Golden Age Guy." It's a compliment in some ways, but it also pigeonholes me a little bit.' -- James Robinson

Fantastic Four #4



"In this saga that Leonard [Kirk] and I are telling, everything is there for a reason. Even the red costumes. All will be revealed." -- James Robinson

Fantastic Four #3 - "The Fall of the Fantastic Four, Part Three"



"It’s one of the things I’m proud of with Starman and I’m trying to do it here, where the O’Dares, Jack Knight, the Shade, everyone had their moment of emotional payoff. So, I’ve already got Bentley-23’s all worked out. I have a Christmas story worked out with Onome that will be both heartwarming and a nice payoff for her character. Wyatt Wingfoot, Scott Lang, Darla Deering, Dragon Man — I have moments for all of these characters." -- James Robinson

All-New Invaders #3 - "Gods and Soldiers, Part Three"



"I looked at the fact that there had been a couple of attempts to relaunch the Invaders relatively recently and they hadn’t been commercially successful. And there had been a lot of potential reasons for that, but the one trap I saw that I was determined not to fall into was the fact that they always go back to the same thing — the Invaders fighting Zemo or Strucker or sleeper robots that people don’t know about. All those tropes that we’ve seen over and over again with the Invaders." -- James Robinson, on his choice to avoid WWII villains
