"I think both stories benefit from the separation. I did have a go at killing him, but my heart wasn't really in it, because it changed the theme of my story so much." -- Paul Cornell, on why he's not writing the upcoming DEATH OF...

"I'm pleased to be finishing my 25-issue story about Wolverine in the way it was intended, without having to bend it out of shape because my bosses decided to kill him." -- Paul Cornell

'In fact I remember when the Wolverine title first started decades ago, being in a comic shop and going "How on earth are they going to make that work?" Because he was the classic cool guy at the edge of the team that says one thing every few panels. Putting him at the centre of a book really didn’t seem to make much sense. I think this is a problem that lots of people have found. So I’ve sort of broken down that wall and got to the heart of him a bit.' -- Paul Cornell

"I love how [Madripoor] became a repository for everything mad and exotic, a kind of summation of foreign parts. I've made it madder than ever, with geography and even speech breaking down, as a result of various science fictional things that have happened there." -- Paul Cornell

"It’s sort of my midlife crisis played out through a superhero. I would never go this far because it sounds ridiculous, but I was thinking about him having prostate problems, because he’s got allergies, he’s got all of the awful small things that bedevil people. Almost every man before they are eighty will have some form of prostate trouble. I can’t think of anything more degrading and humiliating. The trouble is comic fans want their heroes to be invulnerable and strong, not have the weaknesses of flesh." -- Paul Cornell

'Imagine this conversation: "So, what's your name?" "Logan." "And your first name?" "I prefer not to use it." "But if you did?" "It's James." And that's that. The fact that he doesn't go by his original name is meaningful, and we'll get into that. And for those people who think that "but if you did?" should be followed by "snikt," oh grow up...' - Paul Cornell

"I've been busily blocking some folk who reacted to Wolverine with great annoyance. The ones who were impolite, that is. . . . I remember my own fan rage, as a teenager, and how it was genuinely an expression of love. But one should grow out of it." -- Paul Cornell on Twitter, about the book's new direction

"He's one of these super heroes who has actually had a character journey over his many decades of existence, and it's one that makes sense. Without his memories, he acted like a bit of a teenager. Now he knows who he is, and he's grown into this mature, responsible, tough guy." -- Paul Cornell

"Season 1" of Paul Cornell and Alan Davis's Wolverine run concludes...

"I love Chris Claremont's work in general, and he did so many great things with Wolverine, including the Miller mini-series, him in the sewers of the Hellfire Club, his tenderness with Jean. An undercurrent then was how fast Chris was having a character that initially came over as an angry teenager grow up. And these days, in such great runs as Wolverine and the X-Men, he's come full circle, the most responsible adult in the face of Cyclops' angry rebel." -- Paul Cornell

"I like to think of The Avengers as what [Wolverine] does when he's not in his own series. This is the central point for him. His own title is where big stuff should happen to him. That that hasn't always happened is just an accident of history, because he got his own title late. "The Death of Captain America" didn't happen in The Avengers." -- Paul Cornell

"I think he's one of those rare comics characters who's been built on and built on, and the majority of what's been done with him has been welcomed and the layers have stayed put, meaning he's got this unusual depth and history." -- Paul Cornell

Storm and Wolverine visit the "excruciatingly liberal nation of Wakanda"...

"The plan is lots of short, action, and character emotion-packed arcs, that when you put them back-to-back, build to something bigger. It's me doing my mainstream high-power super hero comic. I've never really done it." -- Paul Cornell
