Axel-In-Charge: Extending "Secret Wars," Excitement for a "Totally Awesome Hulk"
“I’ve always been treated as a fairly marginal figure ’round our way, and it was nice to get a little recognition, but I have no idea who put me up for the honor. You have to go through a strict and rigorous check from Buckingham Palace and the government. It was funny to think that all these people had to read some of my wilder stuff in order to pass me for the award. But I was quite touched that I’d been acknowledged at all. […] It actually made me feel more evil, I think. I mean, when a howling witch hunt turns up on cue to accuse you of ‘joining the Establishment’ as if you’d signed up for the Secret Society of Super-Villains, what else can you do but cackle and rub your hands together? I’d love to tell you I’m now qualified to join the Round Table and declare war on Narnia but the truth is, absolutely nothing has changed.”
– Grant Morrison, on being named a Member of the Most Excellent Order of the British Empire,
and whether the honor makes him feel more chivalrous
