"I had this line in Captain America and the Falcon where Captain America was on the verge of having an affair with the Scarlet Witch, and he was not sure if he should proceed, and Falcon turns to him and says, I just realized something, you stink at problems you can’t solve with your fists.

"And I wanted to demonstrate that Deathstroke does not need to solve every problem with his fists. That he is an incredibly intelligent guy, and his intellect hasn’t always been the highlight of his adventures. In my book, his intellect is his deadliest weapon and his greatest superpower. A lot of times, he doesn’t have to whack you out, he just has to give you enough rope to hang yourself."
-- Christopher J. Priest

IT's a series that I have a lot of affection for and is a fascinating read. The cliffhanger at the end of #3 means that #4 can't come out soon enough.

"America is a scary place — and I say that as one of your neighbors from the north who is equal parts terrified, appalled and saddened on a daily basis by something new going on, not the least of which is the rise of Trump. So, yes there is social commentary here.

I became compelled by the idea of these heroes being forced to face this mass violence, but not being able to use violence themselves to stop it. Trying to find some other way to help and stop the madness without resorting to more violence themselves."
