'One of the things we talked about was how Chris Claremont’s early years of X-Men started with them all being a different nationality in “Giant-Sized X-Men,” but then he dug in and gave them all back stories, real world views, and truly nuanced perspectives on the world. We loved those characters because we watched them grow deeper, face their first challenges, fall in love for the first time, experience heartbreak and disillusionment, and lose someone important to them. We lived their formative experiences with them. [Editor Nick Lowe] basically said to do that with these characters in whatever way you want. It’s been a joy to get to know them and destroy them.' - James Asmus

"With Ms. Marvel, Moongirl, and the up-coming series, Mosaic, The Inhuman books are not relying on metaphorical stand-in for the purposes of diversity and representation, they’re utilizing a cast that is actually diverse and more fully representative. Likewise, All New Inhumans has maintained a hugely diverse cast, both in terms of ethnicity as well as gender, nationality, sexual identity, and even the disabled." - Tumblr

"She was the first of the Inhumans to step out on her own and try to connect with humanity. She was an Avenger. She even married Ronan in War of Kings to broker a galactic peace. She’s always put herself out there, taken huge risks, for very compassionate reasons. I think that daring and empathy are an incredible emotional battery to put at the core of Crystal, her mission, and the series. And the dramatic experiment comes in seeing how well her virtues hold up under the incredible pressure of representing all of Inhuman-kind in very high-stakes political showdowns around the globe." - James Asmus

"I know some people won’t look at Inhuman books, treating it like a rival sports team as opposed to what it is — another corner of the shared Marvel Universe. I think part of why there are more Inhumans now is not unlike why there are so many mutants. Back in the day, Stan Lee wanted a way to explain lots of powers instead of continually having to invent different sci-fi accident backstories. But after 45 years of exploring that device, the story of the Marvel U cracked open a new source, and fresh ground to explore." - James Asmus

"The Inhumans don’t serve as an analogue for minority and oppressed groups the way that mutants often did. But to me — that’s not a bug in the system, that’s a feature. That territory is already well handled by the mutants. While All-New Inhumans is a team book, by the end of the first arc, you should see that the cast are on different paths as individuals. And we will see the ways they aim for very different things. It’s an opportunity to compare, contrast, and explore the way individuals around the world step up in a globalized era.

"Increasingly, the real world is filled with unique people embracing the power to change the world in all manner of ways. I see our book as exploring parallels to the opportunities, challenges, and risks that come with the spread of digital tools. People are embracing digital tools, platforms, and connections for good, bad, and the complicated space in between.

"So as new Inhumans become empowered around the world — will it turn them into the next Malala Yousafzai? Donald Trump? Edward Snowden? We live in a time when regular individuals can suddenly seize and leverage influence and power. It can pit them against their own society with massive and public results. To me, Inhumans provide an opportunity to explore more complex stories of identity — personal, cultural, national, and ideological — and the tension and friction between those." - James Asmus

"If I had to resort to comparisons to TV shows, I might say Uncanny [Inhumans] is sort of like Game of Thrones, while All-New is more like Homeland." - Charles Soule

So the first issue of the new Gambit on going was pretty good. Fun, slick, well paced, well focused. Good, intriguing start. And more importantly it was hot.
