Roberto has no idea how tough things are about to get — he’s a master of long-term planning, but in Steve Rogers’ Hydra agent, he’s almost definitely met his match in that department, and the wheels the evil Cap has set in motion could end up crushing A.I.M. in their path. So when things get really bad for him — and for the world — a little hope and caring might just go a long way. Not to mention that helping other people, and letting other people help you, is just good policy for life in general if you can do it. -- Al Ewing

There’s this weird double standard the alien races have for Earth, which seems to be caused by a clash of pop culture tropes and metaphors. So on the one hand, Earth is seen as a bit backward and unevolved, but on the other hand, they’re really dangerous and sooner or later someone should get around to blowing Earth up before these humans do something too crazy. -- Al Ewing

It was two months after the same kind of thing'd been done in Doctor Strange.

It was The Mighty Thor #7, part two and the conclusion of " The Strongest Viking There Is ".

It was during Thor's second round with the titular dragon-blood-empowered pawn of Loki's.

The God of Mischief told the flashback to 896 A.D.

He told it characteristically. )

"In a way, it’s kind of a “Dexter”-y plot set-up — you have an antihero who’s a vigilante, who enjoys getting into the minds of these people that, on face value, he would just shoot in the face. That’s the basic plot set-up. It’s really a fun set-up, and I get to do a lot with it. I think the main underlying sentiment that makes it a fun book to write is, besides Deadpool, a lot of these Punisher-type characters are very un-self-conscious and very serious. Greg is kind of affable at this point, because he gets this new lease on life. The whole premise is, he never really enjoyed it — he had a pretty horrible existence as the Foolkiller — so he’s offered a chance, in a way I won’t detail too much, to have this job as a shrink, and to have a sort of normal life. He wants that.

If anyone read my “X-Men: Worst X-Man Ever” miniseries, that was about being an outsider in the mutant community. For Greg, he’s kind of an outsider in the normal person community, because he was a friggin’ vigilante and he’s actually a lunatic. I think all of my work will probably have that theme. If you read any of my creator-owned stuff, there’s always some kind of fish out of water-ish scenario, because that’s my neurotic thing."

I wanted to create a myth from the future, a quest to find answers and meaning in the face of extinction. In some ways, this is similar to my run on [Loki: Agent of Asgard], the thing that'll let me explore ideas of myth and metaphor, that'll allow me to play around on a grand tapestry. And the further out I get, the bigger I can go. I want to take this book to a place where Marvel-Earth -- the Marvel Galaxy -- isn't even a speck in the sky. -- Al Ewing
