"I'd like to do a New Mutants book, but that's not what Marvel is interested in, and to be frank, not where the money is for me." - Jonathan Hickman

"If you look at your big time villains in the Marvel Universe; your Dooms, your Magnetos and even Galactus, someone will always write a redemptive story for that character. Someone will always write the story where the guy goes over the cliff and kills an entire town. It just depends on what your take on the character is. My take is that Doom is incredibly egocentric and an inherently flawed megalomaniac, but there's a bit of nobility there and for some reason he cares for certain things a whole lot." - Jonathan Hickman

Now, everybody who has been reading New Avengers properly, as opposed to short extracts posted out of context here, will know that it is hilarious. Usually the comedy comes from Maximus the Mad or Namor the Submariner. However, as there has been a, for want of a better spoiler-free term, reshuffle of the characters in this book, humour has to come from elsewhere.

And so here is a masterclass in comic timing from Jonathan Hickman )

"This is kind of the opposite of what I did with FANTASTIC FOUR, what I’m doing with AVENGERS. A lot of FANTASTIC FOUR was going back and looking at old runs and seeing what worked and what didn’t work, and taking the good stuff out and reintroducing it. The goal, though, was to make the franchise really relevant again. This isn’t the same thing. The Avengers are more relevant than they’ve ever been at any point in the history of the franchise. It’s stronger now than it has ever been. Going back and looking at a bunch of old stuff, regardless of how fond I am of it—and there’s certainly stuff that I really really like—I think it’s the wrong move to try and revisit old territory. I think that would be a mistake, and so I’ve intentionally gone the other way." - Jonathan Hickman

'I get bored really easily. I just want to move on to other things and try out new stuff. That lends itself to the job when you’re working at Marvel on a mainstream book, on these continual second act comics.' - Jonathan Hickman

'"The only people who take a joke better than atheists are vegetarians," he said just back from the disastrous dinner party. Seriously, I thought my wife was going to kill me.' - Jonathan Hickman

"In 2008, I believe my initial pitch to William (Christensen, Avatar EIC) was a global power play between undercover metal bands, Harvard alums and Afro-French aristocrats, but he begged me to give him something he could actually sell, so I said, 'How about Zeus killing atheists?'" - Jonathan Hickman

AVENGERS #32 in an ORIGINAL SIN tie-in, but doesn't have much to do with ORIGINAL SIN. After that Watcher's eye knowledge bomb, Captain America remembers the Illuminati mind-wiped him. He goes after Tony with some Avengers, then the Time Gem appears and sends the group into the future. This happens twice, each time with some team members getting sent back to the present.

"It's probably Grant Morrison or Warren [Ellis]. I just love most stuff that they do. And I kinda think if I exist anywhere on the spectrum stylistically with the stuff I do, it's somewhere in between those two guys, with a healthy dash of books I read when I was a kid that I loved, like Keith Giffen's Legion of Super-Heroes stuff." - Jonathan Hickman

AVENGERS #31 ties into ORIGINAL SIN, without having much to do with ORIGINAL SIN. The Time Gem is sending a group of Avengers to the future. As before, they encounter a group of that time's Avengers who knew they were coming. This time, they are 422 years in the future. Captain America and Black Widow are gassed and grabbed by the "Avengers" while Thor, Hyperion and Starbrand are kept in a large clear box. (Thor can hold his breath a long time, while Hyperion and Starbrand don't need to breathe, even though Starbrand didn't know this.)

Cap's bad dreams. )

'New Avengers is the book I always wanted to write at Marvel. Tom [Brevoort] and I sat down a couple of years ago, and I talked to him about this concept — "What are the components of Jonathan Hickman's dream corporate comic book job?" This is that book that hits all those notes.' - Jonathan Hickman
