Don't expect me to take you with me when I go to s

Given that all the secondary characters were pop culture pastiches, I'm kind of curious about who, if anyone the Planetary four were supposed to represent. Ambrose obviously had a Morpheus/Neo thing going on, but I can't put a finger on the other guys. Is Jakita supposed to be the ***-kicking action movie leather girl?
I remember ourchair or compound talking about a theory (which may or may not have been supported by Warren Ellis himself) which involved Elijah Snow representing Alan Moore, The Drummer representing Grant Morrison (despite looking like John Cassaday) and Jakita Snow representing Warren Ellis. How or why? I don't know. But it was interesting.
Also, I still think it would have been interesting if The Fourth Man was Jenny Sparks. And if Elijah Snow somehow ended up raising Jenny Quantum.
I want the last volume to be published now so I can read the whole series again.
