Marvel Vice President Executive Editor Tom Brevoort and Editor Jordwan White spoke with CBR on a new Avengers-related book:
Brevoort: Coming out in November, we’re doing a limited series devoted to Ant-Man and the Wasp – that being the Eric O’Grady Ant-Man currently featured in “Secret Avengers” and Hank Pym, The Wasp who is currently featured in “Avengers Academy.” It’s written and drawn by Tim Seeley, and it’s sort of an anti-buddy adventure story in that we have two guys who don’t see eye-to-eye and who come from different places but have similar powers and are thrust into a situation that involves the both of them. But they really don’t get along too well and are thrown together by fate to have, literally, a big adventure because they are the tiniest things in it. It’s being edited by young Jordan D. White. Jordan, what can you tell us about this project?
Jordan D. White: You called it – taking a look around the Marvel Universe, we saw what an interesting situation Ant-Man and Wasp were in right now. One of Marvel’s classic super-hero duos, we’ve got the original Ant-Man, Hank Pym, going by the Wasp moniker, while the current Ant-Man is a (semi-) unrepentant jerk who originally stole the power and used it to spy on ladies. What better time to get the duo back together and watch sparks fly? I am thrilled to be working with Tim Seeley on the project, whose work I’ve long been a fan of on his creator-owned book, “Hack/Slash.” Tim came up with a story that forced the two heroes to knock their heads together to confront some of the dubious decisions they’ve made in the past. Guest-starring a few of Pym’s comrades from “Avengers Academy,” Ant-Man and Wasp are going up against A.I.M., who’ve managed to get their hands on one of Hank’s most ingenious inventions…one that has big implications for a certain deceased size-changing hero. It’s going to be a really sweet three-issue ride – I hope you all hop aboard!
