Après la déconvenue The Punisher (qu’il a dû finir bien plus vite que prévu), on ne pensait pas revoir le scénariste Greg Rucka de sitôt chez Marvel Comics. Il s’occupera pourtant d’une série sur le jeune Cyclope en collaboration avec le dessinateur Russell Dauterman. Ils raconteront le voyage en solo du héros adolescent après le crossover The Trial of Jean Grey pour retrouver son père, Corsaire, présumé mort depuis la saga The Rise and Fall of the Shi’ar Empire (2007).
Le premier numéro sortira en mai.
[quote=“Greg Rucka”] I was offered the book by [editor] Nick Lowe, and he basically said that he had been talking to Brian Bendis, and he had suggested me, because, I believe as Bendis put it, “Greg’s got a son about Scott’s age, and it seems that could be a really good fit.” And that was how Nick sort of pitched it.
I thought about it, and I was like, “Well, that sounds like it would be a hell of a lot of fun. Let’s try it.” There are a whole lot of irons in the fire right now, and timing for a freelancer is everything: When there’s a gap in the schedule, when you’re free, when you’re not, what’s coming up, what fell through and what didn’t. This was the right offer at the right time. It feels like I’ve been misquoted about this: I’ve never felt like, “Eh, fuck work-for-hire.” Work-for-hire has been very, very good to me, in many, many ways. It is a privilege, more often than not, to get to work on iconic characters. You’re talking about Scott Summers. Come on! This is a cool opportunity. [/quote]
