Series Six actually started before it premiered ... which is why Snakeman has his TM1 look and not his TM2. Rich, of Sinister Six fame, was brought on after the first two issues were completed and they were adjusted after he was brought on board. This series was the first time I let someone else take the majority of creative control in the project. This series also ended with the major crossover event called the Business of War .... which is almost a series unto itself.
