"It seems like it could be kind of an antidote to some of what’s going on in comics. [Mark Waid and I] want Captain Kid to be an adult comic about wish fulfillment, and I don’t know if there are any others like that at the moment. Adult comics really seem to be about miserable people doing miserable things. Which is fine, and I’m all in favor of it, but not every time. There are a lot of shame-based comics that want to seem important, more important than they are. It translates into certain movies, too." -- Tom Peyer

'It is a challenge. I’m not accustomed to writing a character who’s this morally gray, but to make her a straight-up “super hero” would be a betrayal of who she is. I’m working hard at finding just the right beats to make her engaging without being wholly accessible.' -- Mark Waid

"If teenagers were known for always making the right moves and never doing anything dumb, this company would have gone out of business a long time ago." -- Mark Waid

"The approach is actually tonally wildly different. DAREDEVIL was an intensely internal narrative; Matt was telling his own story in first-person-immediate narration, whereas it would be a mistake to get that far into Natasha’s head. She’ll have her secrets from the readers." -- Mark Waid

There was something before Onslaught.

There was First Sign.

It began in Captain America #449, with him being cut off from Sharon Carter by a forcefield.

The field enveloped Manhattan, stopping the power in everything- including a chopper in the sky.

It fell into the East River.

He dove in after it. )

"Sam's all for the help, but he didn't ask for it -- it was given to him by selfless Avengers. It was Brevoort's idea that the Avengers traditionally very rarely got involved in each member's Dilemma Du Jour, and maybe we could switch that up." -- Mark Waid

UNCANNY X-MEN #321 is part of LEGIONQUEST, the lead-up to AGE OF APOCALYPSE. David "Legion" Haller goes back in time to kill Magneto and drags some of the X-Men along with him. They end up "20 years ago," when Charles Xavier and Erik Magnus Lensherr were friends in Israel.

Trigger warning for some ablest language that Charles Xavier doesn't like.

Also, fanfiction! No, not that kind of fanfiction! )

"It really does feel like we left DAREDEVIL at the right time, at what we felt was a peak; and the energy we had there, we transfer here." -- Mark Waid

"I love having more women on the team, and I especially love having a Big Brain -- too many of the MU's geniuses have that Y chromosome." -- Mark Waid

"I already know why the Grinch stole Christmas: he's a jerk, and his story wouldn't be improved one iota by adding a series of flashbacks detailing the traumatic childhood that shrunk the Grinch's heart two sizes too small. I don't need his life story. I just need a villain to help drive the plot. Reggie Mantle is the Grinch of Riverdale. . . He serves the Archie Universe best as a noxious ass with as few redeeming qualities as possible, and if that seems unrealistic to you because you don't know anyone that self-centered, I humbly suggest that you are living a charmed life." -- Mark Waid

"We have a lot of supergeniuses in the Marvel universe, but very few of them are women. I really wanted to give the main Marvel universe a young woman who is tomorrow’s Tony Stark or Reed Richards—she has more of a biochemical bent. Tony’s an engineer, Reed is very technological, but [the Wasp] is a biochemist wizard." -- Mark Waid

"Us pulling out all the stops. Not being afraid to go crazy, not being afraid to break toys. There’s a whole new sense of pacing we’re playing with." -- Mark Waid

"Given the advantage of 20/20 hindsight, I can't imagine why anyone would ever actually put Aquaman on the team from the get-go, if he knew JLA would last another forty-plus years. Don't get me wrong, I like Artie just fine--but scratch me down on the long, long list of JLA writers whose greatest monthly struggle is giving him SOMETHING TO DO." -- Mark Waid

"I think the finished comic reads like a natural leap from what we were doing in DAREDEVIL, and yet feels completely different." -- Mark Waid
