Anonymous said: do you like superheroes from the magic side of marvel? who are your favorites?

kierongillen:

I love ‘em. I suspect I’m one of the marvel writers who has most interest in the magic side of the universe, and magic generally.

If JIM had been an enormous success and got a chance to grow in scale, I’d have tried to roll in a lot of the magical people into it - you already saw that with Hellstrom, of course. 

Strange, obviously. Hellstrom. Magik. Does Elsa Bloostone count? The Juggernaut is never really “read” as a magic character, but is (and one of the things I tried to bring to the fore with him). Doctor Doom. Spiral.

There’s also a bunch of the gods and mythic sorts who are sorcerers - Malekith, for example, or my own Leah. Demons probably count, in which case obviously Mephisto.

And clearly Pixie. Always Pixie.

always Pixie

Important thing: My sister’s partner Sher Kung was killed by a truck in a cycling accident a week ago. If you live in Seattle, you may have seen her mentioned in the news. My sister Christine and Sher have a 7 month old daughter, and Christine had just quit her job to focus more on raising their…

Flashback scene from Quantum & Woody, vol. 2 #2. Words and art by Asmus, Fowlers, and Bellaire.
While there are a lot of laughs in the pages of this book, this scene took me back and really struck a chord.


Woody had bounced through many foster homes prior to landing at Eric and his dad’s house. Like many kids living on the foster system, Woody is basically expecting maltreatment and ultimate rejection. In clinical terms, this sort of acting out on Woody’s part is referred to as ‘testing the limits.’ 

This testing the limits entails the foster child fearing that he or she is only loved or cared for conditionally… and they will misbehave to test this fear (often unconsciously) so to see if the expectations are warranted. If he or she is still loved even when the child acts poorly, then the he or she can begin to relax and form an attachment to the foster parent(s). Unfortunately, many foster parents don’t realize the ‘testing’ aspect of such acting out and it all too often results in further mistreatment and eventual rejection/abandonment.

Fortunately, Eric’s dad is up to this challenge… he sees Woody’s testing the limits for what it is.  …And it results in Woody’s ultimately being able to form a meaningful and important attachment with his foster family.
