'There was a vogue in the late eighties and early nineties for reforming villains -- you had the Sandman reforming, the Rogues Gallery going straight, and Kaluu was one of those as well. He was still doing the black magician thing, and being very sinister and creepy, but he was using his sinister creepiness for good purpose. Anyway, I always found these types of stories very optimistic -- they showed growth and change, and that even the bad guys were human beings who could redeem themselves, and it was nice to see the arc of the universe trending towards some form of absolution.

'As you can imagine, when they all got reversed a few more years down the road it was quite depressing, so, at least in the corner of comics I can reach, reformed bad guys stay reformed. Kaluu, at least, is still fighting the good fight, even if he's doing it in quite a "villain" sort of way.'

"In a straight race, Flash would win. His charity would get the money, but it’s a terrible charity that’s actually one of the many scams of old-time Superman foe J. Wilbur Wolfingham. Barry has not researched his charity very thoroughly. He is publicly shamed by this debacle. The Pied Piper tuts at him. Wally would never be so foolish, Barry. Wally was your superior in every conceivable way and anyone under thirty-five knows it, Barry.

"Once he and Monica team up to sort it out, with Monica doing all the heavy lifting because she’s better than him at being a superhero, Barry takes back his winnings and donates them to Monica’s charity."
-- Al Ewing, on who would win in a race, the Flash or Monica Rambeau

Hey, this is unrelated to the post but has Comixology been a COMPLETE unholy mess for anyone else since they switched to that new reader? It fails to load the pages so often that I've had to, like, reload the reader three dozen times to make my way through all the pages of a standard 20 page comic. I just want to know if the problem isn't only on my end.

That out of he way, onto the post...

"That's kind of the theme of this series. No more A-lists, no more D-lists. No more looking down from towers and mansions." -- Al Ewing

'I feel bad that nobody's noticed [old Luke Cage supporting character] Dave is back. Dave was the Iron Fist before Iron Fist! I was so happy when I found out he hadn't been killed -- that's something you end up running into a lot writing superhero comics. You think, "Oh, that'd be a good villain/hero/supporting cast member" and then you look them up and they're dead.' -- Al Ewing

"I told Al [Ewing], once we sent the issue out the door -- and you can take this as a compliment or not, depending on who you are -- but I think it's a compliment. It's the most Kurt Busiek-feeling issue of Avengers that we've put out in maybe ten years." - Editor Tom Brevoort

'If you're in a fire and the fireman comes in, are you like, "Oh, it's the C-list firefighter?" You know? "Why couldn't it have been the A-list firefighter?" It kind of irritates me far more than it should, the whole A-list, B-list, C-list thinking.' - Al Ewing, on the concept of such lists for superheroes

I understand that the identity of Spider Hero was accidentally leaked online. I've managed to avoid those spoilers so far. So please, please don't mention it or even hint it in the comments. Thank you!

Siege ends in April and it seems that Marvel has decided to end all four of its core Avengers books with the event (and presumably relaunch them in the Summer). IGN has the solicits here.
