Squadron Supreme #12 - "Finding Namor, Part 3"



'I was told at the time, “You can kill him off but you have to bring him back quickly. You can’t take too long.” So the funny thing is I originally intended to bring him back in issue #6, but then Tom Brevoort said, “If anybody wants to set something in Weirdworld that would be great.” So I did the two issues in Weirdworld, which ultimately, every single aspect of those two issues and what came after all lead up to the resurrection of Namor: Doctor Spectrum, Hyperion’s vulnerability to magic, Warrior Woman and the country that she’s taken over. All of those were narrative building blocks that were building to the current “Finding Namor” arc. So I always intended to bring Namor back, but it was interesting that his inevitable return of course got delayed, and then you don’t realize that all of a sudden he’s been dead for 10 months.' -- James Robinson

Squadron Supreme #11 - "Finding Namor, Part 2"



"When you write a team book and all your characters are running around all at once it can feel like every other team book. So that stuff isn’t very fun to write. When you break the team into smaller groups though you can explore and play with their personalities." -- James Robinson

Scarlet Witch #8



"When you do a book and you just ignore any of the stuff that's happened because you've been lazy or just can't be bothered to do your research, I think that's really disrespectful and not good writing. In a super hero comic medium, part of the fun is that shared universe and the idea of all these characters existing in the same time frame." -- James Robinson

Squadron Supreme #9



"The idea is to give Marvel an A-Grade villain who – a female villain – who can fight the Hulk to a standstill. Marvel has really fantastic villains, but if you think about it, there isn’t currently a major league, ass-kicking female villain in the Marvel Universe. Obviously there are super-powered female villains, but nobody who could take on Thor or the Hulk." -- James Robinson

Scarlet Witch #7 - "Enter the Wu"



"I'm going to give her her own villains, her own supporting cast and her own place in the world. She has realized that as much as there’s a part of her that will always be an Avenger, she’s been sort of living under that umbrella for so long it’s become her identity..." -- James Robinson
