"I’ve always had this idea of a super-hero comic with characters that we know and grew up with coming to our world. I’ve had that idea since I was a kid. I love the idea of that. The villains of the Marvel Universe like Dr. Doom and the Red Skull and Magneto and these guys all finding a way here. We have New York, we’ve got London, we’ve got Tokyo and all these cities they know, but we don’t have Captain America, Reed Richards or the X-Men to protect us. I always felt there was a story there. That’s really the genesis of the whole thing."

NEWSARAMA: At the initial wave of promotion for this, you referred to it as a "Narnia" for Marvel…

MARK MILLAR: Yeah, totally. And it was funny because a lot of people were bent because they were thinking it was going to be elves and goblins and all that kind of stuff, but really what I meant was that it was about someone in the real world meeting an imaginary universe. It’s a Marvel fairy tale - and not in some lame way with goblins and pointed ears, but in a way that my daughter, who’s 10, could read and understand. It’s very dark in places, and very real, and probably the safest thing I’ve written in that you could show it to children without social services coming to ask you some questions.

I may or may not post more extensively from the book - which I enjoyed, despite not particularly liking the art - later, but for now, I just post a short sequence that I particularly enjoyed...

Mother may ouch. )

"There are a bunch of elements that make him Superman. But if you're talking about the most core element of him, it's that he's a nice guy in a mean world.

Clark Kent was born with superpowers in Kansas. He could have done anything.

You know what he did? He went to high school, went to college and got a job.

I mean, that, to me, speaks volumes about how this character could or maybe should be written.

You know, even in Superman: Birthright, which is a comic that I really enjoyed, ultimately that comic was a run toward becoming Superman. How did Clark Kent become Superman?

My comic is not about that and doesn't even really address it head-on. It's just about how Clark Kent became Clark Kent.

It was posthumously done, by his great-great-grandson.

It was narrated by that " playboy industrialist " of the same name and heard by the Watcher-stand-in of 2005's series of What If stories, a talented hacker who'd set up his computer to make multiversal TCP/IP connections.

(Presumably, he's either interning for AIM or been interned by ARMOR since.)

The latter'd found the former's work by looking to see if Daredevil was on Earth-717 as he was on 616.

He found that the Devil of Hell's Kitchen apparently wasn't- instead, the Devil Who Dares had definitely been.

He hadn't been Matt Murdock. )

Sometimes, they're cool, like the gun he designed to kill Swamp Thing.

Sometimes, they're terrible, like the kryptonite cage he cleverly disguised to " [capture] Superboy through his sheer dumbness! "

Sometimes, they're just plain WTF, like the jetpack he built out of a fast food place's kitchen.

And sometimes, as in Rick Veitch's Question..  )
