A few excerpts from the conversation

Q: Who Knew Spider-Woman was British?

<b >Bendis: "We released the Spider-Woman Motion Comic trailer, and she has a slight British accent... she was born in England and lived there as a child, but because there are people on the Internet who didn't know this information, I am a (jerk) from (jerk)land [laughs]...It's covered in her origin story, her 70's stories, the short-lived cartoon series...but because I don't write her dialog like Dick Van Dyke in the movie, 'I don't know what I'm doing.' [laughs]

Q: Will Wonder Man be back in your Avengers books?

Bendis: "Yes that seed is planted and he's also back in Dark Reign: Lethal Legion by Frank Tieri."

Q [for Matt Fraction]: Any news on a new Casanova story arc [his creator owned series drawn by brother artists Gabriel Ba and Fabio Moon]?

Fraction: "I'll be seeing the twins in San Diego, so we're going to talk schedule."
