You know how we found out Mary Jane Watson's father was an abusive alcoholic in the 1980s? We learned Flash Thompson's father was an abusive alcoholic in the 1990s.

FLASHBACK was a "minus" Marvel event in 1997. Most of the books were set before the Fantastic Four's rocket flight. The Spider-Man books (except UNTOLD TALES) were set when Peter Parker was a little boy.

He went to an Irish monastery to find peace with himself.

That peace was interrupted by a crash from outside.

He went outside with his fellows to see what had happened and saw a truck that'd hit a tree.

While they helped the driver out, he caught a glimpse of its scattered cargo- newspaper.

One of them posed a question: " Is Nate Grey the second coming? "

" No.. "

He then yelled that. )

'It's a little strange to be on board at Marvel for the end of the Marvel Universe. There have been "THE END" stories before, and I suppose part of me is always wondering what I'd do if I was given the brief of "this is the final story of so-and-so"... well, now that moment is here! In the present day! And it turns out this is the story I'd do.' - Al Ewing

"I'm beyond grateful for all the love this title gets every month, and I hope the thought of everything you know and love dying hideously in a fiery cosmic collision of universes doesn't turn you off too much, true believers!" -- Al Ewing

'See, this is the thing about the whole Sam-as-Cap business - I'm about to do my "when I was a kid, Wally West was the Flash" speech here, but it's so important. There are going to be kids picking up their first Marvel comics over the next few months and Sam Wilson will be Captain America and they will think "wow, that's so cool". And they will never forget. I know I never forgot.' - Al Ewing

"The Inverted Avengers are almost the shells of super heroes -- stripped of everything that makes them what they are, all personalities reversed, only the powers remaining. Battle-board super heroes, existing only as sets of powers to play against one another. They're heroes of the abyss, hollowed out. And if that sounds like a horror story -- well, in practice, there might be a little more BIFF, BAM and POW, but if there's one overarching theme to the year ahead, it's horror." - Al Ewing

'I decided to lean heavily on the "Captain America" side of the title for #1, mostly for the simmering sense of dread as it becomes increasingly obvious that something's gone horribly wrong. But from here on, the whole team is involved -- in fact, next issue, we get a nice breath of fresh air as the non-inverted team members swing into action against a wild, outrageous and decidedly day-glo threat in the Mighty Avengers manner -- before we're back to the creeping awfulness of some terrifying opposite of your friend staring out at you through their eyes.' - Al Ewing

"I think it's good for Captain America, the concept, too -- much as I love Steve Rogers, the idea of Cap has to be bigger than just one person. If Captain America is the representative of the American Dream, there have to be different people in that uniform. Otherwise what's the point?" - Al Ewing

"That's what I like about the whole 'Original Sin' concept, overall, and this is what sold me on it. It could have been a very cynical 'look at what jerks our heroes can be' journey into darkness, but it was never positioned that way by Marvel editorial. In fact, it creates situations where all the characters across the Marvel line have to step up, because that's what they do." -- Mark Waid

"It's very much a classic Marvel story in the set-up, that it looks at the phrase 'superhuman' and underlines the human." -- Kieron Gillen
