    I’m interested in Alpha Flight being a Canadian, so even though I’m not a big Marvel fan, I might just pick this up.

    Loved John Byrne’s Alpha Flight back in the day. I miss Eugene “Puck” Judd.

      I was just thinking that Puck was the only one missing from the original team in the picture. Nice to see Marrina in there.

      Been a fan of Alpha Flight since book one of the original series by Byrne.

    LONG time fan, but I’d still trade Marrina for Box, any day and four times come Sunday.
    Hey, if they can get the twins back from the X-peeps, why not bring Madison back, too? Great love triangle tension fodder between him, Heather, and Mac!

    (and what was that subplot about Walter nearly admitting responsibility for Kyle’s condition in the 90s series right before it was axed?? and can we get an update on the younger team, too?)

    and I hope J-M switches back to that yellow outfit! always loved it more than the mirror to J-P’s!

    (still clueless as to what the baby talk was about in the Chaos War one-shot?? I skipped that replacement team series, so I’m guessing the answer is in there or one of the many, , various and sundry Wolvie books?)

You know you have something to say, say it in the comment section
