If I had 25 issues of Steve-Cap you def would've had an issue of Nathaniel Richards & Howard Stark in a Cosmic Cube Manhattan Project. -- Nick Spencer

"Earlier in my reviews of this run, I commented that Spencer’s version of Sam Wilson reminded me a lot of President Barack Obama. Now that we’ve had more time with him, I see that he’s much more than that. He’s every black person that’s ever had to think about where they fall in the battle of injustice. He’s every one that’s been given power and had it stripped away. Which, eventually, boils down to practically every minority in America. [...] This current run of Captain America: Sam Wilson is going to end up on the syllabus of a really liberal, young-minded sociology professor one day." -- Black Nerd Problems

"In Zemo's case, he really is kind of an inverted Bucky. I felt like that's really consistent with how the character's been shown. The character has always sort of sought Steve's approval even when he's trying to kill him. There's kind of an obsessive quality to Zemo when it comes to both Steve and his father. To me, it says that there's something besides hatred here, that there's a desire to be understood by somebody, a desire to connect with somebody." -- Nick Spencer

"[Sam Wilson] is by far the most nervewracking assignment I've ever had, because I constantly worry I'm getting something wrong (and I'm sure I have). But it's been worth it." -- Nick Spencer

"IMO Maria Hill and USAgent are two of the best characters in comics when it comes to representing views that might be considered right wing. Both are characters who are unquestionably always attempting to do good, regardless of if you agree with their way of going about it. They are also two of my favorites to write, because there's a great challenge in writing heroes you like but may not personally agree with." -- Nick Spencer

"I absolutely believe you can write superhero comics where violence is either peripheral, or even entirely absent. The point of superhero comics is to inspire people to try to be their best selves. They're about people trying to help others and make the world a better place, not a more violent one. Now of course, they take place in a fantasy world where certain things, like vigilantism, are laudable. But even still- I try to find ways to make sure the violence is either justified by some moral criteria, or as an incomplete solution. Usually, the violence in my books is stuff that passes the time until someone comes up with the real solution. Though I've by no means got a perfect record on this front- again, fantasy world, "good" violence, all part of the show. Still try. Some superheroes really benefit from tacking towards nonviolence btw: Superman and Fantastic Four come to mind immediately. Cap, in my mind, comes very close to the line- he's a soldier, but he should always be reluctant to fight. Has to be a necessity. Same for Sam, btw, which is why my favorite arc is Americops, because really, it all kicks off with him trying to PREVENT a fight." -- Nick Spencer
