'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.

"Since the New Avengers were formed from the heroes we love but the Marvel Universe forgets in favor of the Caps, Thors and Iron Men, these villains are the strange, the forgotten, the out-and-out weird, come together to prove just how dangerous they can be. Hopefully this will be a new beginning for at least a couple of these bizarre maniacs. There's evil gold in them thar hills, and I plan to make it shine." -- Al Ewing

"Maria Hill is convinced A.I.M. is ready to break bad in a big way, if they haven't already. Remember, Roberto Da Costa is a dangerous mutant, the son of a known baddie, who’s been tipped by Professor X himself to turn towards the dark side. He’s run with all kinds of shady characters in the past, from the Vanisher to Magneto to that guy with the green topknot. He was trained to be a member of a paramilitary youth movement, and then trained to be a member of an even more violent paramilitary youth movement by a man with a cyborg arm who is also Deadpool’s best chum." -- Al Ewing

'If you’ve ever seen the trio of plays “The Norman Conquests”—three plays set at the same time in different rooms—that's the kind of thing. NEW AVENGERS is happening in the next room of the House of Ideas, and we get to see what happens behind the scenes of a major crossover while the rest of the Marvel Universe is busy. How come no villains ever time any crimes or schemes to occur during these big hero-on-hero battles, people ask? Well, they did. And here it is.' -- Al Ewing

"That’s the most unsettling thing about the Maker--that he started out as Reed Richards, the man who started it all in 1961 and was Marvel’s greatest and least fallible hero. If someone like Reed can be twisted towards evil, what chance do any of us have?" -- Al Ewing

"CIVIL WAR 2 is just the excuse we need - and we'll see people literally using it as their excuse - to back up a truck of manure, manure that's on fire and also there is lava, just back it right up and dump it all over the New Avengers."

'If you've ever thought "what if there was someone as cool and competent as Batman, but cooler because he was also a skateboard master." Well. What I'm saying is there is a comic on the shelves for you today. And that comic is CONTEST OF CHAMPIONS #5.' -- Al Ewing

"I think what makes this comic matter will become all too apparent in the fullness of time, as the machinations of the Elders and their Summoners spill over into the main Marvel Universe and everyone starts realizing that something terrible has been brewing behind the scenes of reality since Secret Wars, and it’s about to break into the world as we know it. Readers can get an early inside scoop with our book on the trouble brewing, and watch the crisis slowly build until it’s ready to hit the fan." -- Al Ewing
