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.

I feel like it’s been interesting playing a little with the definitions of what’s “important”, what “matters”, etc – on the one hand, Ultimates is about literally everything that has ever been in the Marvel Universe, but at the same time it’s not about Iron Man. And I’m allowed to wander off and grow this cosmic garden and make wonderful things out of it because I can do that without stepping on too many toes. We’re operating on such a big scale that it’s almost like when particle physicists reveal that actually the universe is a hologram and all the information of our lives is encoded on the outer walls of spacetime, or whatever it is this week. It’s great, and it blows your mind, and it’s wonderful to know that human beings are able to come together and explore this territory… but it doesn’t pay your bills or fix your car, at least not in a way you can immediately see. So, yeah, we now have an idea that Marvel’s multiversal history is much bigger and broader than we thought – but at the same time, that’s not likely to pop up in a Daredevil story. -- Al Ewing

"What motivates anyone to risk destroying the [universe]? Sometimes, it’s because things have changed around them, in ways they feel have threatened or marginalized them, and they’re trying to take control—or maybe, deep down, just lashing out at an enemy they feel has humiliated them somehow. As above, so below. Maybe Order and Chaos want to ‘take their reality back,’ to coin a phrase." -- Al Ewing

"He’s learned harsh lessons from the previous civil war about jumping in without thinking through all the facets of the situation. Before he decides what to do, Spider-Man wants to know all he can about this Ulysses person, so he arranges for some one-on-one time." - Christos Gage

'There just isn’t room in the main CIVIL WAR II title to get into the heads of everybody involved, especially with the big action scenes and plethora of "Oh no they didn’t!" moments. So, arcs like this, and the issues of CAPTAIN MARVEL I’m writing with my wife and writing partner Ruth, will provide that look at the personal impact of the event on the Marvel heroes...' - Christos Gage

This wasn't intended to be a Dudes in Distress post, but I realized at the last moment that it probably counts, doesn't it?
