Nrama: Also, the solicitations for #501 mentioned that Stark Resilient was going to be working on rebuilding Asgard.

Fraction: #501 opens and it’s sixth months later. The car stuff is happening, they’re making money, they’re on their way, they’re on the move, they’ve successfully achieved stage one and now they’re looking for stage two. They, as we, are on to the next one, on to the next idea. As Tony’s actually hinted a couple of times in a couple of different places, what’s next is we’re going to build cities. Well, gosh, here’s a big city that needs rebuilding.

The backdrop of #501 is they’re dealing with all this business stuff, and prepping to basically pitch Asgard on, “I know you can clap your fingers and this will rise up out of the ground, so let me pitch you on why you should let a bunch of men build this city of gods.” Which is maybe some of my old advertising agency experience bleeding through. We get to see Tony and the Resilient gang getting ready to basically pitch the Asgardians on this gig, while all this Doc Ock stuff happens. Never a dull moment for the employees of Stark Resilient.

Nrama: That also sounds relevant to the theme of science versus magic.

Fraction: It’s interesting having Tony and Thor in my wheelhouse. It’s interesting having them show up as often as they do. We’re kind of foreshadowing, in a way, where Tony’s going in Fear Itself. Thematically, it all unites, if not necessarily moment-to-moment. This next year is very much about science and magic.
