Fokken has a question about Illyana and possible future focus on the character.

I love what you’ve done with Illyana. Might there be any focused issues/arcs in her near future?

Yes. #1, I’m a big enough of a whore that I’m going to make the Kitty/Illyana monster hunter pinup in “All-New X-Men” #25 a reality. Everybody who saw it went, “You should do that!” I should do that! So yes, and there will be a reunion with Colossus, even though admitting that Colossus is coming to the book on any level is breaking my rule on Tumblr. There’s a lot going on with her. Her powers and her training with Doctor Strange, which I’m a big fan of. A lot’s going to happen. Her perspective on some of the things that Scott Summers is going to do may make her have a change of heart about where she is and why she’s doing what she’s doing.


Oh yes.



Everyone deluge Marvel and Bendis with requests to make it an ongoing and order ten copies when the story happens.

It didn’t surprise me at all — [Emma] is kind of observing what’s happening and not as proactive as she’s been in the past. That has a lot to do with where she is and what’s going on and her making pointed choices. I will tell you that after this Ultimates storyline in ‘All-New X-Men,’ we’re getting a Jean Grey/Emma Frost ‘Karate Kid,’ Mr. Miyagi issue of them on an adventure together drawn by Sara Pichelli. I can’t get to that fast enough! It’s literally my next issue.
