"Laura is obviously very tight with Warren and is slowly bonding with her other teammates. We'll be building those other relationships as the series progresses. Interesting things are ahead for Laura. There's more to life than Warren Worthington." - Dennis Hopeless

"I went to this college called Sarah Lawrence in New York and it was really alternative college, for lack of a better word. It had a lot of hipsters before they were called 'hipsters,' I guess. So I thought going there would help me, because I always felt out of place from the jocks and the normal kids when I was in high school, but it turns out that I felt even more out of place amongst people trying to be weird or who based their identities on being the fish out of water." - Max Bemis

"I think, like everyone else, I had grown out of the X-Men because I was twenty-two years old or whatever when [Morrison's run] came out. I had fallen out of the X-Men when I started getting girlfriends, or went to college. That run definitely brought me back into it. It reminded me how much I loved that stuff. It was everything you loved but cranked up to eleven." - Chris Burnham

"One of my initial thoughts was having Beast's secondary mutation really amp up his body dysmorphia problems and actually change him into a woman. But there wasn't really room for that -- if we were going to pull something like that off, it would need to be a full story and not just a zany plot point." - Chris Burnham

"No joke, I tried to get [editor Jordan White] to push for a second printing of #1 with a gold foil logo. He didn't go for it." - Chris Sims

'I don't think I'd go as far as calling it a parody. I mean, we're definitely writing some jokes in there, and there are definitely funny bits, but that mostly comes from us just having a good time thinking about how much we loved (and love) those comics. I mean, you can't see Cable in "X-Cutioner's Song" growling about how he's going to go face Stryfe "Man to man and -- quite literally -- face to face!" without thinking it's kind of hilarious, right? That's the attitude we're going for.' - Chris Sims

"He's an artistic, slightly introverted, gentle giant who loses all impulse control when someone he loves is put at risk. She's an extroverted, obsessive planner who lives out loud because she's considered every angle and knows exactly how she wants to react. Part of it is that opposites attract. Part of it is that they make each other better people." - Dennis Hopeless

"We've basically recreated X-Force in the image of the era. While I'm a huge fan of the original X-Force run, the New Mutant graduates always felt, to me, very '80s despite their radical upgrades. I wanted our version to really look like something that someone would create with hindsight. So what've we got? Basically, it's a team of Wolverines, y'know? It's all the mutants with pretty cool powers going into it -- with the exception of Angel... sorry -- who've decided to use gigantic guns and swords instead." - Chad Bowers

Sims: "Not gonna lie, Jean was probably the hardest one to write, for me at least. The '90s are such a weird time for her. So much of what we think about her character is stuff from the '80s, and in the '90s, she felt like she was still trying to redefine her character without the Phoenix. She didn't even have a codename! But then that kind of became the core of how we thought about her, and her struggle to get past this identity comes up pretty big in chapter 5."

Bowers: "Yeah, we both really like Jean, too, but it's sometimes hard to get around the fact that, in the 90s, she spends an awful lot of time just being Cyclops' fiancée. The show did her no favors, either, and if I'm not wrong -- correct me if I am, Chris -- but she's the only character who doesn't get a solo episode, which really hangs a light on what they thought about her at the time."
