What Chase Tang aka Baryon Said?
My role is very interesting, I think, because in that superhero realm, it’s a new way to have Asians involved. My character is specifically Asian, and I think, in that capacity, it’s something very different and I think the audience will definitely be in for a surprise, for sure. Because I think it’s something we’ve yet to see before. And I think it will change a lot of perception in terms of what maybe people may view as an Asian, I guess. An Asian villain — if you want to call it that — in a superhero TV show capacity.
Spoken By the Man Himself: Mark Millar
Superhero stories tend to have a fairly well-worn structure, but I wanted this to have a very grand, operatic series of beats and really get a sense of escalation in an almost Wagnerian fashion. There’s lots of Hamlet in it. There’s a lot of father/son things going on with it. It almost seems like something you’d be given in school.”
Millar added he wanted the series, which sits at 10 issues (plus 12 more from Jupiter’s Circle) as “a big, weighty tome that happens to be about superheroes.“
“It’s about the dawn of man, the origin of the planet and everything right up to contemporary economics and people nervous about the fiscal cliff and the end of capitalism,” Millar said. “But it also goes as small as relationships and family life, too. This is my ultimate superhero story.”
So folks, this is all we know till now.
