“You’re not gonna have a standard family life for him or just a normal relationship with someone, it would be almost impossible. Because there’s nothing you’ve got to say that’s that interesting to him. Every single thing that you’re saying is only useful to whatever he’s thinking about at that point, and he’s kind of heard it all before, and he can anticipate the next 20 things you’re gonna say. So immediately, that makes him insufferable, but at the same time necessary, because he’s the one guy that can get you out of any situation. So whenever your Secret Service has failed, whenever your private investigators have failed, whenever there’s a problem nobody else can deal with, he’s the guy that gets that call.”

"There’s something fun about writing geniuses. I loved doing it when I wrote Superman: Red Son, I loved writing Lex Luthor. This is like doing a Bruce Wayne multiplied by Lex Luthor, but with Indiana Jones’s taste for Adventure."

"I wanted to create a ‘feel-good comic’ like Forrest Gump and ET and The Goonies and It’s a Wonderful Life are ‘feel-good movies’ and I want to see the impossibly-likeable Channing Tatum as Huck and Rihanna as the beautiful girl in town he’s too shy to talk to.

I want to remind everyone that we didn’t get into this game, didn’t dress up as these characters as kids, because they were so miserable and bad-ass and violent and cruel. We loved them because they were KIND and, deep down, I think we’re hungry for that right now just a few months before we see Superman throttle Batman or Captain America beat the Bejesus out of Iron Man while cinema audiences watch, wondering why the good guys went so bad. Huck is the antidote to the antihero and it’s going to be an interesting experiment this week. In the words of every great comic-book, to be continued..."

"It’s a guy who’s just really pure and really decent, and the Captain America idea of just helping you out, that very idealistic idea of what it means to be an American.
As a kid I wanted to be American because it seemed really forward-looking, and the projection of America, certainly in movies and comics, seemed obviously really glamorous. I kind of liked the idea of that, that ‘truth, justice and the American way’ kind of thing, but just stretched right out to its simplest form.
I wanted to create almost an American folk hero."

- Mark Millar

"Comics lately are being more and more dark, and more and more gritty, and the heroes are more and more anti-heroes, much more so than the classic heroes, and I don’t really remember if I had the chance to work on such an optimistic and pure character before."
