"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

"He’s a guy, and we say this right in the issue, who loves space. He’s not tortured about being in space. He has an affection for Earth as where he grew up, it’s where half his heritage is, but he loves being Star-Lord. He loves going out into space and drinking and fighting and adventuring. But we do give him a new connection to Earth, which is his long-distance flirtation with Kitty Pryde, which Bendis introduced in “The Trial of Jean Grey.” They have these holographic phones with which they can communicate with each other. It’s kind of like intergalactic Skype. They’ve met and they have chemistry and there’s a spark there, and now they’re going to find out across thousands of light years if there’s potential for a relationship there." - Sam Humphries

"This is kind of the opposite of what I did with FANTASTIC FOUR, what I’m doing with AVENGERS. A lot of FANTASTIC FOUR was going back and looking at old runs and seeing what worked and what didn’t work, and taking the good stuff out and reintroducing it. The goal, though, was to make the franchise really relevant again. This isn’t the same thing. The Avengers are more relevant than they’ve ever been at any point in the history of the franchise. It’s stronger now than it has ever been. Going back and looking at a bunch of old stuff, regardless of how fond I am of it—and there’s certainly stuff that I really really like—I think it’s the wrong move to try and revisit old territory. I think that would be a mistake, and so I’ve intentionally gone the other way." - Jonathan Hickman

I picked up a few regular comics as well as the free ones on Free Comic Book Day. After the previous post where young Nova asks some semi-relevant questions, I noticed that he's doing it again in Original Sin #0.



As the new kid on the block, I guess it's only fair that he gets to be the viewpoint character for expository information.

Since this hasn't been posted here yet and a few issues have passed, it falls to me to post some snippets from Avenging Spider-man #17, guest starring everyone's favourite mechanoid freelance peacekeeping agent.

That's Death's Head, in case you weren't paying attention, yes?

Yep, it turns out that Iron Man isn't the only place he's shown up lately. Except this version of the character might look a bit more... familiar to those who followed his original adventures under the pen of Simon Furman.

And Otto-Spider-man is called by The Fantastic Four to help out with a very important task.
Baby-sitting for the Future Foundation.

It goes about as well as you might expect.
