Who doesn’t like Squirrel Girl? Doreen’s great, because she’s the furthest thing from a “random,” “zany” character there is; at the core of her, there’s this incredible, intense well of compassion and empathy that you don’t really see in a lot of other super-people. -- Al Ewing

'The team is far, far more aware of their role in the Marvel Universe not just as mentors, but as students. The Champions aren't the "farm team" anymore - their peers are the Avengers.' - Mark Waid

Squirrel Girl faces the challenge of fighting some bad guys. Will she beat the bad guys? She usually does, admittedly, but it’s always possible that this is the time she won’t. I mean, we killed off Cannonball. -- Al Ewing

I’m aware I’m on thin ice with Brian’s fans, but it wouldn’t be Brian Braddock for me if he didn’t occasionally get peevish at the ongoing madness of the world of capes. - Al Ewing

"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

USAvengers abroad is gonna be so much fun. It's by Al Ewing and Paco Medina, so you don't need me to tell you it's good. -- Nick Spencer

How the team will make it through [Secret Empire] – they won’t, not in their current form. If they did, it wouldn’t be much of an arc, because there’d be no consequences. So not all the team members who come out of this particular crucible are going to be exactly the same as when they went in. And they might not all come out! Cannonball, for example, is a hundred per cent dead. I would never lie about something like that to promote a surprise reveal where he turns out to actually be alive. Never. And I would also never lie about lying about that, or lie about lying about lying about that, so I hope anyone reading this knows exactly how trustworthy I am when it comes to Cannonball’s unfortunate, and definite, death. -- Al Ewing

"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

Roberto has no idea how tough things are about to get — he’s a master of long-term planning, but in Steve Rogers’ Hydra agent, he’s almost definitely met his match in that department, and the wheels the evil Cap has set in motion could end up crushing A.I.M. in their path. So when things get really bad for him — and for the world — a little hope and caring might just go a long way. Not to mention that helping other people, and letting other people help you, is just good policy for life in general if you can do it. -- Al Ewing

'It’s more difficult writing Hydra Steve, because he’s both extremely ruthless and a master strategist, and he’ll say anything to make his goals happen – even to himself. So every bit of conversation coming out of him is an attack, a probe, a test, an attempt to extract information. Every page of dialogue feels like I’m choreographing a fight.' - Al Ewing

'I knew we weren’t doing a “Monsters Unleashed” tie-in, but I did want to bring back American Kaiju in some capacity, so I figured it might be fun to do the opposite of a tie-in – an entire crossover in one issue. That’s “Monsters N’ S.H.I.E.L.D.”, which has its own Alpha and Omega issue contained within the issue, and also runs through “Deadpool Into Fear” and “Hulk: King of the In-Crowd,” so make sure you have every issue of both of those incredibly long-running mags, or you’ll be completely lost.' -- Al Ewing
