I’m aware I’m on thin ice with Brian’s fans, but it wouldn’t be Brian Braddock for me if he didn’t occasionally get peevish at the ongoing madness of the world of capes. - Al Ewing

USAvengers abroad is gonna be so much fun. It's by Al Ewing and Paco Medina, so you don't need me to tell you it's good. -- Nick Spencer

How the team will make it through [Secret Empire] – they won’t, not in their current form. If they did, it wouldn’t be much of an arc, because there’d be no consequences. So not all the team members who come out of this particular crucible are going to be exactly the same as when they went in. And they might not all come out! Cannonball, for example, is a hundred per cent dead. I would never lie about something like that to promote a surprise reveal where he turns out to actually be alive. Never. And I would also never lie about lying about that, or lie about lying about lying about that, so I hope anyone reading this knows exactly how trustworthy I am when it comes to Cannonball’s unfortunate, and definite, death. -- Al Ewing

Roberto has no idea how tough things are about to get — he’s a master of long-term planning, but in Steve Rogers’ Hydra agent, he’s almost definitely met his match in that department, and the wheels the evil Cap has set in motion could end up crushing A.I.M. in their path. So when things get really bad for him — and for the world — a little hope and caring might just go a long way. Not to mention that helping other people, and letting other people help you, is just good policy for life in general if you can do it. -- Al Ewing

'I knew we weren’t doing a “Monsters Unleashed” tie-in, but I did want to bring back American Kaiju in some capacity, so I figured it might be fun to do the opposite of a tie-in – an entire crossover in one issue. That’s “Monsters N’ S.H.I.E.L.D.”, which has its own Alpha and Omega issue contained within the issue, and also runs through “Deadpool Into Fear” and “Hulk: King of the In-Crowd,” so make sure you have every issue of both of those incredibly long-running mags, or you’ll be completely lost.' -- Al Ewing

'He’s actually pretty dangerous! He’s kind of goofy, but then so was Boris Johnson. He’s got future technology that’s better than anything in the present, and he’s using it to make sure the future of this “alternate past” belongs entirely to him — a global kleptocracy, with him behind the scenes, manipulating all aspects of life to serve the end goal of funneling more cash into his vaults.' -- Al Ewing

The first arc of Al Ewing and Paco Medina's U.S.Avengers wraps up this week with the final battle against the Golden Skull, a supervillain who bears more than a little resemblance personality-wise to a certain gold-and-winning-obsessed President of the United States.

But the name of the U.S.Avengers' helicarrier is either the best comics coincidence in recent memory or the result of a really quick change in the text. )

"I'm also taking some inspiration from old Captain America stories from the past — that sense of writers in dark times exploring what their country meant to them — and a few yet to come. The U.S. Avengers are going to have their role to play in the future." -- Al Ewing

"I honestly have no idea what America will be or represent when the book comes out. I don’t even know what America will look like when this interview comes out. Things are really not normal right now, and it seems like every day brings some new piece of ugly strangeness to our attention. I’m scared for my friends.

"In a context like that, I wonder how useful escapism or superhero thrills can be, but as part of a balanced diet and as a means of taking a breather, recharging the batteries, and maybe finding some sort of positive inspiration in a difficult time, I’d at least like to believe it does more good than harm. And having the United States represented in this hour by this team feels relatively positive."

'When you have this much sturm and drang going on in the Marvel Universe, it’s bound to affect things on the edges — I liken it to something like the play “Noises Off,” where there’s the action going on on the stage and the drama happening backstage, and one affects the other. “New Avengers” glances off the main “CW2” plot, but we’ll be coming out of it in a very different place from where we go in.' -- Al Ewing

Oops, it turns out I was mistaken and it actually hasn't been a full month since the issue came out. I'm deleting the pages, but I'll keep the post up so the comments won't be lost.
