Jeffrey Veregge had this to say about the Red Wolf series announcement
There’s not a character like Red Wolf out there right now. As a native, Im really excited to see that he can do things, he can figure out things and stand with Captain America, and hold his own in this universe. Thats whats awesome about it: You have all these characters of different nationalities and ethnicities, but its not all about their culture. Its about them being a hero.
Series writer Jacob Thomas also commented on the series announcement and the character Red Wolf:
There’s something about that harsh terrain of the American Southwest that requires an adaptable, thoughtful, resourceful hero, and that’s Red Wolf all over. He doesn’t have amped up strength or tech, he’s got quick wits, hard fists, and an unshakable sense of justice. Underestimate him at your own peril.
