"I hate trying to find roles for that bird. In the words of Tom Peyer, Redwing is the Aqualad of the Avengers." -- 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

'It speaks to one of the friction points that keeps the collaboration strong. The tag line of the series is, “If you could change into a teenage superhero, would you ever change back?” Why would you ever change back? [Co-writer Tom Peyer] and I have two completely different points of view on this. My attitude is, No! I would never change back. Not for one heartbeat. What are you, crazy? Tom has a much more nuanced, adult attitude about it.' -- Mark Waid

"[It was] a little terrifying. I’ve always been a fan of the Wasp, the thing we had to be most careful about was making readers understand that this isn’t a dismissal of Janet Van Dyne or her legacy, and I think we’ve accomplished that in the way we’ve set up our story. We’re not in any way trying to replace Janet." -- Mark Waid

"I think he’s one of those characters that’s gotten the short shrift. He’s like the Martian Manhunter of the Avengers. He’s the one that nobody pays attention to but everybody sort of has a secret love for. And honestly, once Captain America: Civil War movie put him in a sweater – that was awesome." -- Mark Waid

"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
