When I originally pitched this series, Galactus was going to change back at the end. It was baked into him turning gold in the first place – it was going to be a tragedy arc, a rise and fall. He would sacrifice what he had gained to save Eternity. (Readers saw what this probably would have looked like when Anti-Man sacrificed his life for Galactus back in #6.)

But a funny thing happened. The more I wrote Gold Galactus, the more I wanted to write him, and everything that sprang out of him. Purple Galactus was done – so done that he was a dialogue shorthand, so clichéd that my friends were using him as a joke – but this felt new. An ocean of possibility. So many new stories could come out of this. After a while, turning him Purple again felt like an act of vandalism, like putting a brick through my own window. And for what? The same old rise and fall story? Ugh, I just couldn’t do it. It went against everything in me.

'Alexander the Great was annoyed that there were no more worlds to conquer, but Kang has ever more worlds to conquer. I think my biggest influence was "Avengers Forever" Kang. I thought what Kurt [Busiek] and Carlos [Pacheco] did on that was really cool.' -- Kieron Gillen

"I actually suspect Nextwave was one of the formative works that gave a glimpse of the 00s of superhero comics. In a particularly bad year, every issue made me happy, for 20 pages. That's not a small thing. It is a grand celebration of the energy and lunacy of the Marvel Universe.

"Siege is trying to do that, but with an underpinning sadness. It has this grand contrast in tone between the lightness and playfulness of the riffs, and the utter horror of the situation these people are trapped in. It's a tone I suspect is most similar to my Journey Into Mystery, but pushed into the manic stage."

"This is my love song to the Marvel Universe though, and my love song is about the joy of the unfamiliar as well as the familiar. So the idea is that you know the archetypes, but these are new things that you've never seen before. That was my thinking. If I'm going to say why I love Marvel, it's not just the characters. It's also the process of saying, here's something new with them you never expected. It's not just this nostalgia thing. It's the House of Ideas. Let's own that." -- Kieron Gillen

"Basically, this is my semi-spiritual sequel to S.W.O.R.D. that tries to be NextWave as a tragedy. It’s probably the most ludicrously me thing I’ve ever done for Marvel." -- Kieron Gillen

The conclusion to the Young Allies/Secret Avengers team up as somewhere in the Colombia to stop the return of Onslaught.

Where we last left off, Onslaught (stage 1) had finally come back complete to the Marvel 616, through the Negative Zone portal, no longer needing his anchor, the young hero Nomad.

Things get worse from there.

Traumatic distortions. )
