      I'd be worried about flooding the title with too many characters too soon.

      We know that Talisman & Persuasion will be making cameos in #0.1, whether as appearances, flashbacks or just floating heads to indicate they're still alive is a different story.

      A casual reader's likely to know of Puck, so that's already a cast of 11-ish Alphans, plus Cody + Kyle(JP's boyfriend, not Wildchild) that we know of.

      Plus there's also the fact that the AoA Wildchild will be in Uncanny X-Force for a 3 issue arc, so they may think twice for that reason too.

      Wow, it's really nice of all of us in Canada to decide to have an election this May to promote AF #0.1, eh? How's that for timing?

      I dunno, Phil...I can pretty much guarantee there will be more than 11 characters in the series (probably even in 0.1). Kyle and even Persuasion are supporting characters, at best (and maybe not even Kara)...I don't see how they'd count.

      As for Bochs and Diamond Lil, they serve basically the same function, since their not part of the original team...they be just supporting characters (if not adversaries, that is).

      Yeah there'll be more than 11 characters, but I can't see there being a cast of more than 11 Alphans in the team.
      The 8 we've got is a well-rounded team.

      Cool.
      I've lost track - where did we learn that?

      If they really wanted a well-rounded team, they would have added a 9th member; Pink Pearl.

      Gotta agree with mreez and think that Jaxon is going to be involved in someway, somehow just to renew the battle with Hudson
