I’ve noticed with the British writers there’ll be a political edge that’s not in the American stuff. Writing superheroes in particular, we’re very suspicious of people in uniform; Americans kind of worship them. I think it’s because they haven’t lost their empire yet in the way that most of Europe’s lost its empire, so we don’t really trust these father figures in the way Americans do. They’ll probably be a lot more cynical in 30 years when America’s completely fucked and it’s Brazil and Russia and India and China that’s running the show!
