"I gravitate toward more street level heroes because I like those kinds of stories, but also because they seem to come a bit more naturally. So with Carol I really have to push myself because her cosmic-scale power set (and world) is very much the opposite of street level—so it's been fun to get out of my comfort zone and try to deliver for Carol the stories she deserves. And pushing myself for Carol is of course great for me as a writer too."
