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."

"It's a coming of age story in the ruins of the world. It's about growing up, being overwhelmed by the responsibilities adults are thrusting at you -- all their dreams, all their fears, all their ambitions and expectations -- and being terrified and making mistakes as you try to learn what it is to do and be good. Shorthand, it's two kids coming of age in the post-industrial military complex." - Marguerite Bennett

"Chris and I looked at the entirety of X-Men in the '90s, and really tried to distill all of it down into one big, gigantic story. So, naturally, it's influenced by the cartoon and the comics -- which are no doubt the two biggest voices of that era -- but there's also the toys, video games, the trading cards, and the list goes on and on. It's all in there!" - Chad Bowers

"We’ve been dealing with mutants being the oppressed minority for 50 years. It’s great to tell E IS FOR EXTINCTION as the complete opposite: a utopian mutant world." - Chris Burnham

"Everyone has a judgment, but whose is right? Should Jean be held accountable for things that she has not done yet? Should she be stopped before it happens again? Is a crime a crime if the person who committed the crime hasn't committed it yet?" - Brian Michael Bendis

"Weirdly, the biggest influence was being 13 years-old during 9/11. You watched your expectations for what growing up was going to be -- such an adventure! -- turn into a struggle. You watched adults you loved and respected become bitter, fearful, hateful, bigoted. You were young enough to watch Saturday morning cartoons and old enough to read '1984.' You knew you could grow up to fix the world…but you didn't know quite how. I didn't realize it right away, but it's very much channeling the vibe of being so young and so protected and becoming aware of the horror of the world -- and worrying, when you're called upon, that you're not the savior that was intended." - Marguerite Bennett

"I like writing self-aware characters who can see the funny in their drama-filled lives. The Inferno is big, dark and scary -- but it's also pretty outlandish. I think having the characters acknowledge the crazy makes them more relatable. It certainly makes them more fun to write." - Dennis Hopeless

"[Morrison] doesn’t own the characters but if I thought it was going to piss him off, I would’ve bowed out. He thought it sounded neat. He told me to go for it. He also gave me a couple ideas he thought I should use." - Chris Burnham

"Years of Future Past is bombastic and '80s in tone, but is as much about youth as age, about the search to be a force of good as much the consequences of evil. A part of me set out to write an adventure story, and instead I wrote a coming-of-age in the post-industrial military complex." - Marguerite Bennett

"I'm picking up from the way [the original] X-Tinction Agenda ended, which is Rahne -- Wolfsbane -- and Havok staying behind to rebuild Genosha. So when we pick up with them, it's several years later and Havok's definitely his own man, he's not living under his brother's shadow. He's got a whole host of problems that are unique to him and unique to Genosha." - Marc Guggenheim
