"I think I’m known for writing a certain kind of X-book, after DEATH OF WOLVERINE, DEATH OF X and IVX. ASTONISHING X-MEN is no exception. If people want consequences, they’ll get ‘em." - Charles Soule

'“Curse Words” in particular was born from the idea that I wanted to do something with no restrictions on either the writing or art side, to best take advantage of Ryan’s unique storytelling abilities. Magic fit the bill in a big way, and from my initial pitch to Ryan (“So, I have this idea about a wizard who’s kind of a dick…”) the book came to be.' - Charles Soule

When Charles Soule started his Daredevil run DD's secret identity was back in the closet, with only Foggy Nelson knowing who he really was. Today's issue revealed what caused the new status quo.

"My final thought on the completion of my single longest comic run to date? It was all just so much FUN. It always felt like there was so much possibility in these characters, and I tried to live up to that. If you read this run from start to finish, you'll get one huge, interconnected story, with a wonderful main character in Medusa. This book was always about the queen - her struggles to hold her nation together, and her ultimate success even at great personal cost. Inhumanity is about change, and we see that happen in spades, to the extent that the future of these characters could contain anything at all (as it should be!). The books contained Game of Thrones-style intrigue, super hero action, romance, meditations on grief and humanity, weird humor, you name it." - Charles Soule

"The mandate for this job, from the start, was 'make new stuff.' Do you realize how rare that is in an established super-hero universe? I was directed to create new heroes, new villains, new locations and mythology, and due to the nature of the brilliant setup Jonathan Hickman had given me in his INFINITY series, the possibilities were endless." - Charles Soule

"A lot of times with big events, big story events, the central conflict or the heart of it isn't always, you know... Perhaps I shouldn't be saying this but it's not always incredibly resonant. Sometimes it feels like some cosmic thing has popped up and everybody's got to fight and sort of deal with it. I think I Vs. X as its heart, you know, it's a survival issue for both sides. You totally understand why each side would go to the mat on this. And so it becomes there's an emotional core to every single scene. Whether it's Inhumans or X-Men or whatever's going on, you know at their heart why people are behaving the way they're behaving, even when they're doing terrible things." - Charles Soule

When Dan Slott introduced the Unspoken in his Mighty Avengers run (you can read the story here and here), he was what TV Tropes called a fallen hero.

Charles Soule brought his character back in the Inhuman title, though his characterization and history bore only a superficial resemblance to the original character. Instead, he was just evil. In my opinion, this made for a much less interesting story.

"He’s a serial killer who’s also an artist — he feels others’ death is a small price to pay in the pursuit of great works of creation. In a way, that’s similar to Daredevil, who believes that whatever cost he personally pays in the pursuit of justice is worth it." - Charles Soule
