      I dunno, on that one cover, it looks like Shaman vs. everybody.

      Hmm... to me it looks like Shaman's trying to save Snowbird.

      The thing I can't work out is whether or not Mac's trying to fly away or if he's just blasted Marrina.

      If it's the latter then that'd make Mac the core betrayer?

      That's a REALLY interesting point, and something I hadn't thought of... but given FVL's loathing of the Temporal Versions of AF I doubt they'd create a 2nd Puck.
      My guess is he got out of hell somehow...


      Any guesses on who's going to become AF's hammer-wielding Worthy adversary?

      Yes, i have thoughts.

      Many of them ("Why are you all laughing?" is one of them). Sometimes, more than one in a day!

      Hammer-wielding...Wrecking Crew!

      Shocking betrayal by...Mac. He's not a man given to politics. That's my thought. He just follows orders and serves his government; but he'll be the big hero in the end.

      Imprisioned hero - definitely Puck.

      I've got a hunch the hammer-wielding bad guy could be (a) Box.

      I say this, because of something FVL said about Madison not being available for the maxi-series:
      The X-Office has declared Madison off-limits to us, I'm afraid. Box, though...
      Maybe he's just saying Box could show up if the book survives as an ongoing, or maybe he's giving a reveal?

      Why would you put a hammer in a box? And what would you use to smash open the box, seeing as how your new hammer is inside it?

      If you don't know, I can't explain it.

      I'm sorry, I know that can hurt.

      First part, true. They've said AF will be betrayed. They never said the betrayer will stay betray-ey.

      Puck is imprisoned on that cover, but it could be purely symbolic, just a pic that's got nothing to do with the contents. We've all seen them.

      Ooh, Black box? Everybody, everybody ride on time!
      I take that to mean that...
      No, I don't. I just reread it. I was going to say that meant they really couldn't use him, but you're right, they can use Box. At least his legs. Then it'll be just kick-boxing.

      You have to put it in a box before you give it to anybody.
      I'm still trying to figure out why my work's dishwasher is Thor brand? Who buys a dishwasher named after a guy famous for using a hammer?

      I think it is going to be Marrina just looking at who the Worthy are (Marvel released who gets hammers yesterday).

      Maybe the guy with the hammer is Beta-Ray and maybe the whole promo has a great big typo and Alpha really isn't BETRAYED but rather gets Beta-Ray(ed).

      Meh. Doesn't sound interesting to me. Just give me good stand-alone Flight stories already!

      Wow. Puck! PUCK!!

      I think Dale has been teasing us a bit with the "Puck... if we end up using him"... and they bring him back in #2.

      For the record, I also ordered the variant (Puck) cover of #2.

      I haven't felt this way since 1992!

      I guess you would do that so "you can't touch this" or "break it down".

      Citadel warned of the Unity party and even tells Sasquatch he's a slave to the government...While saying that government is being stolen...He seemed to know what was coming.

      Still v. worried about the traitor being one of Jeanne-Marie's personalities, though.
      I actually think that would be fantastic...I'd love to see an additional sinister personality be explored...Totally selfish, arrogant, ego-maniacal and vicious.

      Out of all the one's shown on BC I can only see it being Grey Gargoyle.
      The others would probably be considered too 'top tier' for AF.

      However, I reckon that there'll be one of Pak & FVL's choosing within this series (& in Herc).
