The second interview certainly gives more insight. I like how excited he is to write the Avengers as enemies.

Lots of pointing going on here. Is Hope taking a leak?
I guess 'Ro's skipping this one out.
This isn't Normandy. This is one beach Captain America will regret storming.
Another great interview from Kieron Gillen. Even if I disagree with him, he's always entertaining, and easily treads the line between giving and withholding information.
As far as disagreeing with him ... I would SO love to see some fashion critiquing going on in an issue. That would be hilarious. Plus:
I think the Extinction Team are all powerful enough to realize that critiquing each other's fashion could lead to destruction on an epic scale. Even Emma keeps her tongue under lock and key. If she said what she thought of Colossus' juggernaut outfit, Utopia would be sunk beneath the seas.
Actually, for Magneto, my arcs before the relaunch were kind of showing why they ended up not wanting Magneto to change uniform. We start with him discussing a new look with Kate -- and we end the last issue of "Fear Itself" with Scott using his presence in that iconic, demonic uniform to underline the threat. His uniform is actually the clearest statement of part of the Extinction Team's mandate -- yes, we're saving the world...but you should be afraid of us, too.
What is wrong with Scott? CLEARLY, Namor's speedo is the most iconic uniform, and I guarantee, more men are afraid of an angry, near naked man leaping at them, than some silver haired fox in a purple and pink outfit waving his hands around. If their costumes are part of the Extinction Team's mandate, then Namor needs to be back in his classic outfit, striking fear of losing their lovers in men everywhere.
Emma is hilarious. She whips out the old Hellfire costume whenever Scott's public image is in jeaopardy. Remember when she was wearing her crotchless panties during "tales of the reconstruction"? She's such a troll.
