ROY THOMAS TALKS CREATING AVENGERS VILLAIN ULTRON

Source: Comic Book Resources | Categories: Age of Ultron | Comments (0) | E-mail Article | Add a Comment




This July will mark fifty years working in comics for Roy Thomas, a writer and editor so legendary, whose resume cannot be done justice by picking just the highlights.

Thomas succeeded Stan Lee as the Editor in Chief of Marvel Comics. He co-created dozens of characters ranging from Ultron and Vision to Ghost Rider and Iron Fist. He brought Conan the Barbarian and "Star Wars" to Marvel Comics, and wrote both. In the case of "Conan," he not only wrote one of the longest runs by a writer in modern comics, he left his mark on the character by adding Red Sonja, inspired by Conan creator Robert E. Howard, into the mythos and later writing her adventures. He enjoyed long runs on "The Avengers," "The Invaders," and numerous other Marvel and DC series.

Currently the editor of "Alter Ego," Thomas writes the daily "Amazing Spider-Man" newspaper strip and is the author of the recent book, "75 Years of Marvel Comics," published by Taschen.

The prolific writer spoke with CBR about his robotic comics creation, about th turn movie phenom.

About Ultron:

I'm looking forward to seeing it. I was delighted to see that Ultron looks like Ultron. I figured maybe they would change him more. Of course he has changed at various times -- different bodies, the head's changed a little bit -- but the general look of him has always been the same. I guess that must have struck Joss Whedon the same way. I think I would have recognized him right away as something that looked like Ultron even if I didn't know who that was. I'm pleased about that.

About the Vision:

The Vision hasn't been around in the comics for a few years. I don't really follow the comics, but has the Vision been in comics much recently? He was very prominent for a number of years and became the most popular of the characters in "The Avengers" who didn't have his own series at the time. Then it seemed like he fell out of favor.But the movie audience is not the comic book audience, so it doesn't make any difference. To the movie audience the Hulk is an integral part of "The Avengers." I've never thought of him as such. He was in the first three or four issues, but the reality of the movies is quite a bit different from the reality of the comics. And of course the reality of the comics is whatever you chose to take from fifty or so years of continuity now.

About a cameo in the film:

No [he does not have one]. I would have liked to. I was in touch with [writer/director] Joss Whedon, but I think Stan has those sewn up. (Laughs) That's okay. [Whedon] did say there's one little touch, that I'm not at liberty to mention, about me in the movie -- if it doesn't end up on the cutting room floor. I haven't asked if it's still in there. I'll have to wait to see. (Source: CBR)
C2E2: CONNER, PALMIOTTI, TYNION & MORE TALK THE NEW DC UNIVERSE
04/24/15 @ 6:40 pm EST
Source: Comic Book Resources | Categories: DC | Comments (0) | E-mail Article | Add a Comment


While the DC Comics on the stands are currently undergoing a Convergence, the talk from the publisher at C2E2 looked forward to DC's impending June relaunch. Friday afternoon at The New DC Universe panel, a coalition of creators bringing new series and new approaches to some of the company's classic characters led the charge.

As things got underway with "Batman Eternal" writer James Tynion, "Catwoman" writer Genevieve Valentine, "Harley Quinn" co-writers Amanda Conner and Jimmy Palmiotti and "We Are Robin" artist Khary Randolph taking the stage.

The panel started out by discussing June's returning "Harley Quinn" #17 where Conner explained the book would focus on its lead "being a professional doctor and a non-professional psychopath" in order to "save all the animals in the world." To accomplish that goal, Harley makes a team of Harley's gathered from across the span of Manhattan's five boroughs. The story from issue #17 and 18 finds the gang of Harley's chasing down the Captain in a Coney Island bar and hijinx ensuing.

In Harley spinoff news, "Harley Quinn and Power Girl" launches on June 17. The six-issue mini series is a story that takes place in between moments of the well-received "Harley Quinn" arc where the character teamed up with a brainwashed Power Girl. "It's a whole two-weeks worth of adventures that take place between those two panels," Conner said, crediting Palmiotti with the high concept.

The additional new June series launching from the pair is "Starfire" which has a different tone than the comedic "Harley," but is still a lighter book for DC. "She's a fish out of water. She's from an alien planet, and she doesn't know anything about earth and is trying to fit in. She's trying to understand earth culture and doesn't understand a lot of it, but htings get very confused. But she's very smart, and a lot of time, she saves the day," said Conner.

Tynion shifted topics to talk about his incoming work co-writing "John Constantine: The Hellblazer" with Mind Doyle (with artist Riley Rossmo). He said the team wanted to show a Constantine that was "vibrant, alive and dangerous" where fans were drawn to the excitement of who John Constantine is in a modern context. "This is the John that you see at the end of the bar, and you don't know whether you want to have a conversation with him because you think it might destroy your life...and you're right,"

Khary Randolph spoke to the tone of the "We Are...Robin" series, comparing it to the Batman gang scenes of "The Dark Knight Returns" with "V For Vendetta" with a little bit of hip hop flourishes thrown in. Lee Bermejo is writing the book and providing covers while Randolph and Rob Haynes take on the interiors. "I want to gritty it up a little bit so it's not as clean as the stuff I want to do," he said.

"Wonder Woman" artist David Finch then joined the panel to talk about the incoming Annual #1. He called the issue "basically a big fight between Wonder Woman and Donna Troy for most of the issue...it's very rare that I get to choreograph a big fight scene page-by-page, blow-by-blow," he said.

The artist said that with June's "Wonder Woman" #42, he wanted to give the character a costume that was less stereotypical and more practical -- in line with the costumes of the men of the Justice League. "It was hard to give her pants without giving her pants," he said, adding that the relationship with Donna Troy will continue to evolve. "It's not going to be easy."

The new arc will also introduce a new mystery character teased by Finch's latest cover.

Panel moderator Heath Corson then switched places with Palmiotti so he could talk about his work writing the incoming "Bizarro" series. "The concept for the 'Bizarro' book is it's Jimmy Olsen and Bizarro in 'Planes, Trains & Automobiles,'" he said, noting the strange land they'll travel to is Canada.

Valentine then spoke about the continuation of her new take on "Catwoman" as the boss of bosses in the Gotham mob saying, "The more you think about it, the more it makes sense. She doesn't like dealing with everybody, but she absolutely likes getting shit done. So all you've got to do is put her in charge of everybody," she said. "I was really excited where at the end of the first arc, she realized that to get things done, she had to become Selina Kyle and Catwoman both again. So now she'll be back in the costume."

Frank Miller and DC Entertainment have officially unveiled The Dark Knight III: The Master Race, the third and final installment of Miller’s seminal Dark Knight trilogy of Batman graphic novels.

Miller helped revolutionize comics in 1986 with The Dark Knight Returns, a tale of a much older Batman coming out of retirement, which now serves as the inspiration for much ofBatman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice and helped redefine the character of Batman for decades to come. The more controversial sequel, The Dark Knight Strikes Again, followed 15 years later.

Miller will co-write the 8-issue miniseries with Brian Azarello (Wonder Woman, 100 Bullets). The series will ship twice monthly. Artists for the series have not been announced.

“Batman remains my favorite comic book hero and a sequel to Dark Knight is going to be daunting," said Miller in a press release, "but we’ll do our best.”

“We are thrilled to have Frank back home at DC writing Batman,” according to Dan DiDio and Jim Lee, Co-Publishers for DC Entertainment. “The story he and Brian have crafted is an astounding and triumphant conclusion to this seminal body of work which influenced and shaped generations of readers and creators alike.”

According to Azzarello, “It's been an amazing experience collaborating with Frank these past six months. I think we have an epic story that these characters truly deserve.”

The Dark Knight III: The Master Race will release this fall.

The fate of the old Batman is up in the air, as is the Joker, last seen battling each other in the Batman series as part of Endgame. The final issue of that series, #40, is late. And will come out after the Free Comic Book Day title. Which may be a shame, because this comic does give away how that issue ends… a bit, courtesy Bleeding Cool.
