Over at Newsarama, Russell Burlingame asked me questions about HEIST and I did my best to dodge them.
Blog@: How deep and developed do you imagine this superhero universe to be? Obviously you can see in Austin Grossman’s book Soon I Will Be Invincible that there’s an inclination to make them pretty fleshed-out for some of these villain stories.
BM: That book ran hot and cold with me. I really liked the villain’s tale, but the superhero stuff was very inconsistent. But I quite loved how he was building himself from lab geek to supergenius in the underground.
There was a terrific line that captures the frustration of being at your start and ready to remake the world, “I was exhausted and broke, young and evil and superintelligent, somewhere in America.”
