En entrevista para Comic Book Resources, el escritor Jason Aaron y el editor Tom Breevort revelaron más detalles acerca de Original Sin, el mega-evento Marvel de este año en dónde Nick Fury armará a un equipo para investigar el asesinato de Uatu, The Watcher. Les dejo algunos fragmentos de la entrevista:
"When the heroes find The Watcher's body on the moon, his eyes are gone. The Watcher's eyes are really the secret to unlocking everything he's witnessed over the years. Whoever holds one of the eyes is able to explode a bomb full of secrets and unleash all the various secrets of the Marvel Universe into the wild through that eye."
Las típicas promesas de que ESTA VEZ los tie-ins sí son importantes...
"We talked in the past about how the structure of this is different than the other events that we've done," said Brevoort. "With the new information we've just revealed you can figure out that once the detonation goes off and the first wave of secrets get deseminated out to our characters, that's going to set off a multitude of stories. Those secrets are mostly what's going to be driving most of the assorted tie-in books." Brevoort stated the secrets will "affect the main series as well," but the secrets affecting each of the main characters will mostly be addressed in the tie-ins.
También hablaron sobre dos de los secretos que serán revelados dentro de la historia:
There were two secrets the panelists were willing to put on the table: Captain America will learn that somebody close to him has tampered with his memories ("That will have a seismic effect on Cap's relationship with the people around him," said Brevoort. "It's the worst possible time for Cap to be faced with something like this."); and in Spider-Man's world, we'll learn that there is someone else that was bitten by the radioactive spider that originally bit Peter Parker. Fallout will begin being dealt with in Dan Slott's new "Amazing Spider-Man" #1. "It's a character that cuts back to the very first day in the science lab," said Brevoort.
Y sobre la oportunidad de mostrar la interacción entre personajes que no se han relacionado mucho:
One investigation has to do with the homicide detective squad headed up by Captain America, while the other is more of a clandestine investigation led by Black Panther, Moon Knight, Emma Frost and more -- and they discover this isn't the first time the Watcher's murderer has killed. "We start to follow a murder trailer that takes us to a lot of corners of the Marvel Universe," said Aaron. "We get to follow these different characters, that's been one of the most fun parts of it for me." He described Doctor Strange and Punisher as a "buddy cop movie," and said pairing the characters off had been a lot of fun.
A mí me entra la duda sobre si eso de que alguien más fue mordido por una araña radioactiva en verdad fue idea de Aaron, porque tiene toda la marca simplona del Slottttttttttttttt
