"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."

'Well, we're tying into "Civil War!" "Civil War" One, that is! I'll be honest, we thought it'd be funny.' -- Al Ewing

'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

"This isn’t locked off from continuity; as things get wilder and woolier in our comic, they’re going to echo out and affect the wider world. We’re planting a seed here and that seed is going to grow into something big and mad; in fact, I have no idea how big and mad. I strongly suspect I’m underestimating the hugeness of what's to come." -- Al Ewing

"An action-packed, big-fun comic about heroes fighting villains in a cosmic arena while immortal beings gamble for the stuff of godhood... all with added Maestro, alternating between pursuing his schemes for power and hitting people really hard in the face. Are you not entertained?!?" -- Al Ewing

"I was in the room when they were casting about for people to write this, and I think the key question I asked was 'can I use anybody?' and [Marvel Editor-in-Chief] Axel [Alonso] said 'Yeah, anybody,' and that pretty much sealed the deal for me." -- Al Ewing

"Lots of mysteries, lots of emotional beats. We've kidnapped a few luckless characters to be permanent additions to the cast -- the idea is that the game-players and their "Summoners" have a number of permanent pawns. They can be assisted by the Marvel Universe's best and brightest -- "ringers" who are stolen for a fight or two, mindwiped and sent back none the wiser -- but essentially, they're there to fight until they die.

Imagine that for a second. Fighting an endless gladiatorial combat in a broken section of spacetime, utterly alone. Nobody's rushing to bring you back, nobody's coming to get you. Iron Man says he'll bring in the Avengers -- but then he's sent home in a flash of light and you know he's not even going to remember your name. And then people start dying, and you know it's just a matter of time before it's your turn...

So, yeah, emotional beats won't be a problem. The big mystery is, how the Hell does anyone get out of this?

"Kitty is going to be a regular presence in the book. And as we advance from issue to issue, her presence is going to increase. Their relationship is going to grow, and it’s not always going to fun and flirty for them. They have two very different personalities and they’re going to clash sometimes. But, there’s no denying that there’s’ an attraction happening there. They have these holographic phones that they can talk to other with over extreme distances, so it’s like they’re in the room together. As they talk more and get to know each other more, and as their attraction develops, she will be an increasingly important part of the of the book. Kitty Pryde is not going anywhere." - Sam Humphries
