    Marvel.com: So why did you pick Puck, everyoneís second favorite short Canadian super hero, to be on the team?
    Sam Humphries: [Laughs] I liked having Puck because I feel like thatís a character where there is a lot of untapped potential, thereís a lot thatís ending up there thatís never been seen before. Heís a kick-ass character who has a background as an adventurer and he used to be a bouncer at a bar, so heís kind of this tough Canadian Indiana Jones. Heís also short in stature, but you donít see that really in the way he conducts his life. Heís the kind of guy who goes into a situation and never thinks twice and thinks heís going to kick ass. And heís also a smart-ass, and I have a team of very serious characters, so I was excited to have a guy in there to crack a joke once in a while.


    Marvel.com: So heís a bit of comic relief?
    Sam Humphries: I would not say heís comic relief. Heís a character that laughs in the face of danger.

      Sounds like they'll write Puck as a hero.

      Looks very nice, very modern. Have no idea what the hell is going on in that black and white panel with the eyeball probe-o-tron but that evil grin on Spiral's face is complete awesome.

      I like Sam Humphries' take on Puck too, hey this is sounding pretty darn good!

      Yeah, it happened in the Body Shoppe in Uncanny X-Men, somewhere in the 200s.

      Heís a character that laughs in the face of danger.
      Like Xander?

      Next week's X-Position at CBR is with Sam Humphries so if any of you have any questions about Puck, or any concerns you want addressing e-mail 'ssunu@comicbookresources.com' with the subject line 'X-Position:Sam Humphries' in the next few days.

      The more AF related questions we can get in, the better - it doesn't have to be me trying to squeeze information all the time!
