Hopeless said the story fits in with the original stories told by writer Stan Lee and artist Jack Kirby in the 1960s, but brings it forward.
“The story is told within all of the fights of that first year, and we kind of dance around the raindrops of what Stan and Jack did and tell the new story that builds on that,” Hopeless said. “And it also modernizes it, so they're not wearing checkered suits and going to beatnik bars like they were in the 1960s issues.”
