      Alpha has faced Attuma a few times, maybe the hammer-wielder is him?

      Yeah it is confirmed Attuma is getting a hammer, so perhaps he could face AF

      I think he's mainly for the Defenders oneshot, but it's possible.

      I actually kind of like the idea for The Chosen. I don't plan on getting Fear Itself but I did get The Book of the Skrull prelude just so I have a hint of what will be going on in AF. It was actually really good, but then I'm rarely disappointed in Brubaker's stories. Especially when dealing with WW II Cap, Bucky and Namor.

      I actually hope the Chosen is NOT an AF bad guy they go up against. I'd rather see someone they've never faced before.

      Thanks for the links mreeez. Hmmm, not really sure about these character designs, other than the post-hammer Thing, and the pre-hammer Absorbing Man.

      I'd prefer not to swing toward the "mentally ill = untrustworthy psycho" trope. And I'd really like not to have JM lose the ground she seemed to have gained recently wrt dealing with her DID. That's the potential downside of the creative team going waaaay back to basics -- there's the danger of some good bits getting ignored along with the wtf-ery. Not that I'm sorry to lose low points like Alpha Flight attacking a school or Mac's increasingly preposterous series of resurrections, but there are some parts that add up to half-decent character progression in there too. But we'll see how it shakes out.

      I know the preview pages aren't much to go by but she seems well written to me, IMO.

      I say toe-paypo!

      I vote one of the Worthy should be the telepath who betrayed the JLA, back from the dead after Diana killed him. He should get a special Mjolnir, made of Ag.

      Calvin: I want horsey ride!
      Dad: I'm busy, Calvin.
      Calvin: You know, Dad, it won't be long before I'm all grown up. One day you'll wake up and wonder how all the years slipped by. You'll look back and say, "Where has the time gone? Calvin's so big, it's hard to remember he was small enough that I could give him horsey rides." ... But those days would be lost forever.
      Dad: I think I've worked through my potential guilt now.
      Calvin: No, no! Jump the fence!

      Max Lord? He's already alive and kicking again. I'm almost impressed by the turn-around time on that one.

      Not that I know of... I just want Maxwell to have his own hammer. A silver one.

      Digger: Amazing.

      As for Puck being the Betrayer... I guess I haven't really been following much of Marvel since the Civil War (the way they do all the comics to be very dark really bothers me) so I've missed a bunch of stuff. I really hope the character is basically what I remember of it. He was one of my favourites...

      Puck is back? Joy unconfined. Now let's ditch the demon and go with Byrne's man of the world.

      At this stage, I couldn't care who the traitor is, as long as the Flight is back. And Back for Good!

      I think that's pretty much taken as read already.

      I dunno. It wasn't that long ago that we were told that the reason Puck was in Hell, was because of all those years he spent with a nasty demon/sorcerer inside of him.

      But then didn't he wake up in the shower with webbed hands and a lady calling him Patrick? I know my continuity I do
