      that guy with the skull on his head ( the ravager?? i think)was so powerful and pompous its hard to believe he'd be part of a team and subservient to anybody??? Plus i'm eager to see what the motivations of alpha strike are , its hard to imagine heather hudson being a villain

      Does raise the question as mentioned before, what happens if Persuasion, Purple Woman, whatever gets knocked out during a fight?

And as she rescues Jenny, Heather says something like "don't worry, you'll see your Mommy soon". Could Jenny be her daugther? Could she have made a deal with Cody to help her get her daughter back somehow? And aligned with Persuasion just as a "back up plan" in case Cody changes his mind? And if we agree that the unknown Alpha Strike member is Aurora, I would say that it's perhaps Jeanne-Marie that would be surfacing since she was given for adoption too, and could relate to Heather's goals.... thoughts?
      great theory!!! i couldn't imagine her motivation for working with cody especially with all her distrust of gov't manipulation (AF vol 2 remember!) but her child would defiantly be it!

      I'd have to vote for Witchfire. It makes the most sense. I think somebody has to be controlling the minds of people such as Purple Woman, Ragnarck, Wendigo, and Vindicator. Witchfire has this ability, plenty of power to spare, a really bad attitude, etc. Plus, her being the daughter of Belasco, this to me helps me understand why Puck will become so important - as the former (short time, pun intended) ruler of Hell, he might have knowledge (or power) required to help take her down. To me, the figure in shadow is another double-ruse by FVL; classic misdirection, he is trying to get us to believe that it is Aurora. It is really Witchfire. And remember, she was already once the leader of Beta Flight.
