He can be the yuk-yuk guy, he can be the “dark comedy/killing guy,” and then it can be like, oh he's a real person. We know he has lots of feelings even with his powers.
Would you be friends with someone with powers if you were...? I wouldn't be anti-powers. I'm totally woke. But I'd be like, “Oh god, here comes so and so, he's got powers. He just talks about himself all the time.”
It depends on what their power is. If they can read my mind, I feel like I might avoid them a little more if I'm having an off day.
They're always trouble. The mind readers are trouble. They can scramble your brains, too. In the larger universe of the X-Men, there are some characters with some weird-ass powers. And I don't even know, what's the dude that you can see through? Glob. His power is just being Glob? Being weird looking?
I always wanted to assemble my own team of X-Men called the Off-Putting X-Men. And it would include guys like that.
That's actually a really good idea. That'd be a pretty funny run.
They're great! I don't know what they do. There's nothing wrong with them, I just have a lot of questions. Let's talk about The Unicorn, now that we're talking about emotions.
And yes, you may do the comic version of The Unicorn, we're waiting, thank you.
Is there anyone hiding a super power on The Unicorn?
No, no super powers at all. My character does have the super power of not quite getting the joke. And Walton [Goggin]'s character would definitely be an early Cyclops kind of guy. All good.
Doesn't know what his potential is, because he's finding himself in a new space. That's what I think is so interesting, because you also mentioned Old Man Logan, and I feel like there are a lot of these characters who find themselves in a new role that they're navigating, and they've always been this one kind of person, and now they're in a completely different setting in a completely different time, even. Or a new phase of their lives, where they have to adapt.
Old Man Logan I love because I love anything Wolverine, of course. But Old Man Logan makes me a little sad. I guess for the reasons you just expressed, and he's avenging the death of his family. But also, the “man out of time” aspect. You feel the loneliness of that. Whereas Cable, you're like whatever, he doesn't care.
Is Walton Goggins character, Wade, sort of a man out of time? Because he's been sort of removed from the dating scene, which he's now re-entering.
He's in the future. It wasn't his choice to be there, and he lost his wife. So, yeah, that's good.
