Writer Jason Aaron reunites with an old friend when Quentin Quire finds himself at the center of “The Mighty Thor’s” current War of Realms storyline. But before the potential Phoenix host gets too involved in the Asgard/Shi’ar War, CBR has the first look at Russell Dauterman and Matt Wilson’s art from “The Mighty Thor” #18
“[Quentin Quire is] one of those pieces that really fit,” Aaron told CBR in a recent interview about his upcoming plans for “The Mighty Thor.” With this story, I wanted to pull together many different elements from Asgard and the world of the Shi’ar as I possibly could. We couldn’t fit the Starjammers in there; I really wanted to do that, and Russell [Dauterman] did too, but that was kind of one element too many. Gladiator and his son Kid Gladiator have big parts of the story, though, and as we’ll see by the end of the arc, the Phoenix becomes a part of it. Given all of that, it made sense for Quentin Quire to pop up. I really liked the idea of the Jane Foster Thor and Quentin Quire together. They make an interesting pair.
“…It was fun to thrown him in the mix of this. Not just for the heck of it, though. He’s going to play a big role in the story.”
