"Carol Danvers, aka Captain Marvel, pretty much owns the spotlight right now – that wasn’t my doing. I mean, my run begins with Carol as the biggest superhero celebrity on the planet, taking calls from POTUS and suffering through a TV show based on her life. But emotionally, Carol’s just come through a tough period of conflict with her closest friends – Tony Stark, Jessica Drew, Kamala Khan – which has absolutely changed her. Responsibility – and the price of responsibility – has forced her to take a hard look at who she is, both as a person and a hero. So there’s already so much going on, both around her in and her mind, that there’s really no “trick” to writing her, other than to just let Carol be Carol. She’s had fifty years to develop as a character and has really just now hit her stride." - Margaret Stohl

"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.
