"This piece is rare, because unlike almost all my covers, I didn't do a thumbnail sketch. However, with the Iron Man piece as inspiration and the first brick, I had the idea pretty much in my head of how I wanted all four covers to play out. Still, by not doing a rough sketch, my fear was that I ran the risk of not having all the characters properly relating to each other or living in the same space/world. So, with Mjolnir in hand, I took several shots of myself posing as Thor and Cap, and these were the two I decided to use. Unfortunately, Chris Hemsworth was already cast as the god of Thunder, because I'm sure these pics would have made Kevin Feige change his mind. For those that care, the layout for this cover was drawn digitally on a Cintiq tablet." — J.Q.
