“The perplexing thing is Kingdom Come was supposed to be a cautionary fable. It was supposed to be like, “This is what happens when you go down a very dark road. It ends up very badly.” It seems like a lot of people only took the first part of that message, which is, “Oh, look at the cool stuff in Kingdom Come.” No! No, no! Lois Lane is not supposed to die. Superman and Wonder Woman are not supposed to be a couple.

It’s kind of fascinating to me to see some of the wrong lessons learned, but some of the right lessons, too. I love the fact that Kingdom Come managed to elevate Wonder Woman to the “Trinity” level. It wasn’t just Superman and Batman anymore. I’m proud of what we accomplished, but every once in a while I think, “Oh, you learned the wrong lesson there.”

"The Champions are about confronting the injustices of the world, particularly the ones younger people face. As a Marvel comic, though, we can’t be too on the nose. It’s sort of disrespectful to do a story about Ferguson, call the city Ferguson, and act like the superheroes can have anything to do there, because that belittles the efforts of the real heroes in that town. If we take situations like that, though, and sort of tweak and fictionalize them a bit, it’s clear what we’re doing." - Mark Waid

"I've done a lot of tie-ins to other folks' events. To me, when they succeed or when it's easy to write tie-ins are when the folks who are writing the event give you sandboxes to play in, where you can have a little more room and you can have a little more use. Instead of kind of peripherally connecting, you give them environments and stages that you can build stories out of. So, in a behind-the-scenes sense, I looked at this event and said 'If I were a tie-in writer, what would be useful to me here?' Setting up these arenas in the Darkforce and behind the planetary defense shield, and a few others that'll come into play as we go..."- Nick Spencer

"This speaks to me of a guy who, like I perceive Doom, doesn't believe that he should own the world because he feels like he is worthy and nobody else recognizes it. To me, Doctor Doom's big secret, although he would never even admit it to himself, is that he wants to own the world because secretly he believes that if he does, it will validate all the things he wants to believe about himself. It's a complete 180 of the way we tend to think about Doom." – Mark Waid

"I’m in that tiny sliver of people who think Scott Summers is the best X-Man there is. I’ve loved Scott Summers ever since I first started reading X-Men comics back in the mid-60s. So I campaigned quite heavily to get young Scott Summers on that team." - Mark Waid

"A little while back, Grant Morrison and I were discussing the old Superman lore, specifically all the various items he had in the Fortress of Solitude. He had that giant key, and the Bottle City of Kandor, but he also had a Zone-a-phone. It was a device that Superman used to look into the Phantom Zone. And, whenever Superman would look into it all he ever saw were these people shouting 'I hate you, Superman!' and 'I'm going to get you for this!'

"So, the obvious question came up: Why would anyone want to keep a device like this in their house?! A device that is just full of people telling you how much they despise you whenever you turn it on! And then I realized that I had a Zone-a-phone in my house; it's called the Internet."
