      Personally I'd go for Vol.1 #12 - iconic.

      That's the one I submitted, along with the various "resurrections" of Guardian!

      It's unanimous. Or anonymous. Or something else like that.

      Yes, for a single issue, #12 would be a great choice.

      I'd DEFINITELY go with issue #1 from volume 1. Withouth THAT story thered never have BEEN the others! Alpha is such an overlooked part of Marvel Comics.. it would be GREAT if theyd give the team the respect they deserve by giving #1 a nod. (or at LEAST x-men #120)

      #1 is also a good choice... though is it in Marvel #1s?

      Uncanny #120 has the problem of not being a done-in-one, though.

      Alpha Flight should be there, I'm surprised the logo doesn't feature the Fantastic Four or the X - Men.

      The Marvel 75th Anniversary Magazine came out today, FREE, nice!

      Marvel listed the 75 issues in the top 75 in one part of the magazine with a little cover and blurb for each issue. I saw Sasquatch on the cover of Marvel Two-In-One Annual #7, the cover of AF #12 as Phil mentioned above, and Wild Child the Billy Tan cover for the Age of Apocalypse Omnibus. There are a bunch of ads in the book congratulating Marvel and one of them has the variant cover of Astonishing X-Men #51 with JP and Kyle kissing, so that kind of counts but it's an ad.

      Very interesting and happy Alpha Flight made it into this publication and even happier that it's FREE! Nice!

      You could buy three different variant covers for $9.99ea and they are pretty cool textured covers.
