- Do you think that Marvel Girl and Squirrel Girl could be friends? And if they were, what kind of adventure would they have together?
- You mentioned earlier that you kind of wished you could go back and make Angel a girl. I'm wondering what all of you -- what sort of a change you wish you could make, possibly even to your own work, or to that which came before, that you think be more fun than what happened?
- The X-Men being what it is, it will probably never have a true conclusion. If it were down to you to decide, you know, what would be a logical end point for the X-Men as a series, what it has been before -- what do you think that would be?
- Which of the X-Men do you think would be great as a professional wrestler?
- I was just wondering if there are any currently inactive characters that any of you miss in particular. Besides Maggot, obviously.
- How has the vagueness of the mutant metaphor impacted you?
- Which one of the X-Men is best at fighting Sentinels?
