Middle schoolers, which I found kind of interesting when we were talking about how we were going to approach Pebbles and Bamm-Bamm. That's one age group that never really gets represented in popular culture, sort of middle school. Everyone's either little kids or they're in high school. It's kind of the forgotten age, because I think it's really the age where the lava or your identity begins to settle and cool. It's where you discover the hard lessons about falling in love, and about how uncool you are, and your struggle to become an adult is really formulated in that age. I thought there was a lot to work with there.

It gives The Flintstones another dimension, where it's not just about politics or social satire. It's also about a very human, very intimate voice which human beings develop within themselves.

I’m of the opinion that there’s no such thing as a “D-list” character. Every character in a shared universe has something about them that’s cool, or interesting, or worthy of re-examination, which is why my team books so far have tended to feature the less-hyped heroes. So it’s not so much that I want to turn them into something different – the idea is to find something about them that makes me want to tell stories about them, and bring it out. And every character has that something – there’s really no such thing as a bad character in a superhero universe. -- Al Ewing
