"Much as I did with CAPTAIN AMERICA: MAN OUT OF TIME, I wanted to pick a moment in Avengers history that had been kind of glossed over and go into greater depth. The story of the Avengers drafting three known criminals into their ranks is more timely now than it was back then, even, as reporters in our story worry that Scarlet Witch and Quicksilver are foreign terrorists!" -- Mark Waid

'Makes perfect sense for that idea, that a middle-aged man says a magic word and becomes a teenage superhero. But, a joke is not a series. That’s something I learned early on with things like “Insufferable” or “Irredeemable.” You can have a cool clever twist on it like middle-aged man becomes a teenage superhero, but unless there’s more to it, that’s a one note joke.' -- Mark Waid

"One of the big hurdles for a science guy like me to leap is mythology ... It's a personal failing, but while I appreciate myth and magic, they don't move me the way science does." -- Mark Waid

'Okay, let's talk about "virtue signalling" for a moment. First, you cynical fucks who use it as a pejorative, sometimes other people need to know that they're not alone, esp. in rural communities, etc. Speaking with compassion isn't about scoring points, it's about reaching out and reminding each other than we're not alone. Second, the naked cynicism of the term "virtue signalling" is stomach-turning. We can be better than this. YOU can be better than this. Cynicism has only one purpose--to make you feel cool. (And in that way, it's even more "virtue signalling" than "virtue signalling" is.) Cynicism brings nothing to any table. It has no up side. It exists only to denigrate. And that's why I hate it, and that's why you never see it in my work. We can be better.' -- Mark Waid

"I’ve been itching to tell this story for a long time. I love, as I did with Captain America: Man Out of Time, to be able to tell flashback stories within continuity..." -- Mark Waid

'Transparency. “No More Secrets.” Widow’s actions of the past have come back to haunt her in a damaging way, and now she’s trying to help others avoid a similar fate.' -- Mark Waid
