Quote:I suspect that, very often, Terry Kavanagh started a story without even knowing how he would resolve the mystery that he had plotted. In my opinion, that's also how Howard Mackie was writing.
Up until last year I'd have agreed with regard to Mackie but in the "Ultimate Spider-Man" panel on How to Write Comics at Comic Con Honolulu 2019 he specifically mentioned the necessity of writers knowing their character and how important it is to know everything about them. In the instance of Danny Ketch, he originally intended Centurious to be his and Barb's father.
Quote:David Michelinie & Bob Layton had imagined that Rae LaCoste would have become the new Madame Masque after killing Whitney Frost. It would have been also revealed that she is the ex-wife of Scott Lang (and, thus, the biological mother of Cassie).
Yep, I remember.
Quote:I don't know if Terry Kavanagh was aware of this idea?
After all, he had already turned Alfredo (the friend of Richard Fisk) into a supervillain.
What's your intended point about Morelli?
Quote:In 1995, Rae LaCoste was still around. She was one of the characters irregularly appearing in the War Machine book.
So, back then, Terry Kavanagh would have needed the approval of Dan Abnett.
I've spoken with Dan and he recalls the initial plan was for Bethany but they had to alter that and he doesn't recall from there who Terry planned. Given Dan was using Rae at the time, as you mention, Terry obviously hadn't asked, so doubtful it was going to be her. So that still leave it a mystery:(
